Television Screen problem

I have a 20" Magnavox Smart Model TV.
I do not have the original remote.

The screen size is incorrect, all the top and bottom lines (such as scores,
ticklers, etc...) are not visable. I can find no control on the menu to compress the picture/screen to the correct size.

Do you have a way to do that?

There is no menu available for this adjustment. Without the specific model, I can't give you the exact cause. But, this is usually caused by one or more parts starting to fail in the vertical circuit. If I had this in the shop, I would look for bad capacitors in the vertical circuit before I started making adjustments.

Picture Size


Keep in mind that not all programs and show are in widescreen format. When set to normal, you will get those black bars on the sides because the program is sized for the older TV's. Some TV's will have a zoom option, but that will cut off some of the top and the bottom of your picture.

Until everything goes widescreen, you are stuck in normal with those black bars or widescreen with the fat people.

I hate distortion in my TV image, so I am perfectly fine with my TV on normal.

Good luck.

You have two possibilities; either buy the original remote or look up the code for 'universal' remote for that set here:
Remotes
If you can't find the code set for the remote & TV you have, look for a code set for one of the following brand names:
Funai, Symphonic, Sylvania, Emerson, Aventura, Durabrand, ESA, Magnavox, INSIGNIA, Philips and Misakai

These are all made and marketed by Funai.

Do not have a remote i have closed caption on the screen i can not get rid of it


Most cable remotes allow you to set many basic functions to somewhat control your TV with the proper code. They may not have all the capabilities of the original remote but CC is one that it should allow you to access.
Check your manual or instructions from the cable company or their website for instructions on how to do this with your remote and set.
It may take some time and the input of several different codes since all of the manuafacturers seem to love changing them from one model to the next.
