Loss of vertical sync or any other problem with your Mits is
likely caused by bad power supply capacitors....they are made by Rubicon and are notorious "leakers"......very tedious and
expensive to fix...................good set back in the day.......T.

SOURCE: Cannot make horizontal and vertical size and position adjustments

OK...I paid a whole $50 for an Apex AT2702 that had [undisclosed] vertical zoom, horizontal shift, vertical shift and width issues. Before I raised hell for the person who sold it to me, I decided to first exhaust all alternative solutions.

I found that in order to tweak these settings, you have to be in service mode and must have a service manual which I can email upon request.

BE SURE TO DOCUMENT YOUR CURRENT SETTINGS SINCE ANYTHING YOU CHANGE WILL AFFECT YOUR SET'S PERFORMANCE !!!

1-Reduce your tv volume to 0
2-press the MUTE button on your original tv remote [you'll see "Mute" in red on the screen]
3-AT THE SAME TIME, press MUTE on the same remote and MENU on the tv controls.
This set your tv into service mode [there will be a red "S" at the top-center of your screen.

You'll need the table in the service manual page 47 where there are V-SHIFT, H-SHIFT, V-ZOOM, E/W WIDE default values that will need to be changed. WATCH YOUR SCREEN as you change the values to ensure you don't over do it.

If you have news ticker and sports scores issues, you'll want to be tuned to CNN, FOX, ESPN or whatever to see how your changes are applied.
If you have tv guide problems then tune to that channel or press info and see what happens when you make the changes.

BE SURE TO DOCUMENT YOUR CURRENT SETTINGS SINCE ANYTHING YOU CHANGE WILL AFFECT YOUR SET'S PERFORMANCE.

This has worked for my set and you may attempt this solution on yours at your own risk.
I'm no longer pissed off that I got a bogus tv because it now works just fine and I can see everything!

Good Luck!

Picture is to large for 27in


If model indicated here is correct either a problem in the Vertical circuit of the set or an adjustment.

Almost any shop can take the set into the service menu and adjust vertical size a bit to correct if not circuit problem.

The picture is oversized and the printing as in the stock ticker or in the sports scores can only be seen a little bit on the bottom. Can't find anyway to resize the picture.


Zenith sets, like most others now, are adjusted electronically through a service menu. You'll need your original remote control (or a Zenith-brand universal replacement with a MENU key) to access the menu. Press and hold the MENU button until the channel number and time display goes away, then press 9, 8 , 7, 6, ENTER. This puts you into service mode.

In service mode, CHANNEL UP and CHANNEL DOWN move through the different settings, and VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN change the values. Make sure you write down the original value of anything before you change it so you can put it back if necessary. One of the reasons the manufacturers hide the service menu is because the set can be damaged by incorrect settings to some of the parameters.

On some models, you can't get to all the parameters unless you change one called F MODE from 00 to 01. You might need to do this on yours.

The list of parameters varies by model and features. I haven't worked on a Zenith in a long time so I don't remember exactly what yours says, but you want to find two settings for V SIZE (vertical size) and V POS (vertical position). Adjust the size first by lowering the value until the top and bottom of the screen are black. Then adjust the position so the picture is centered (black strips close to equal size). Finally, increase the size until the picture fills the screen again. It's normal to adjust for a little overscan, meaning you push the top and bottom a little bit out of view. If you stop too soon, on some channels you might see flashing lines at the top of the picture.

When you're finished adjusting, turn the TV off to exit service mode. If you needed to change the F MODE setting, put it back to 00 first. Your picture should be properly sized after all this.

How to adjust vertical size my hitachi c29-r30sp


You could go into the user menu and look around to see if it has an adjustment. If not you will have to access the service menu for your tv. There may be a setting to adjust vertical size there. If that still isn't possible you may have to open the tv and look for a pot or a switch that can control the vertical adjustment. It may be by the vertical output circuitry. This could also mean that you have a defective component in the vertical circuit or inadequate voltage to that circuit.

Vertical line picture


problem is caused by the loss of horizontal deflection signal. It is quite surprising that the entire unit is still working, since usually, a loss of H-Out will disable the entire set. Problem can be as simple as loose solder connection to a more complicated defective horizontal circuit. I would suggest havint it checked by a professional TV tech.

There are vertical and horizontal adjustment in the tv, however it requires removing the rear cover.
If you are unsure of the adjustments rather let a qualified tech service the tv for you.
