Question about RCA 32V550T 32" TV

1 Answer

Screen is cutting off the sides

I've noticed on my tv that the picture is slowly stretching out the picture, most noticable when playing video games, but still there on regular cable and when watching a DVD.

Also recently started randomly expanding and shrinking picture, almost like it isn't getting a steady supply of power, plz help

That is an ITC008 chassis and the problem you're referring to is called a breathing picture. One fault I am aware of in this chassis/model is the connector Bl103. I have seen a couple where the connector failed and had to be replaced. Could open it up and locate the conntector and see if it's vibration sensitive.

This problems u are having it is not the causes by the tv,because ur tv it is a analoge CRT tv,don't have this functions zooming in or out or the problems just causes only 8% cutting off edges of the tv pictures only.If the problem it is happening to ur analoge tv it will have no vertical hold at all.The devices u are connected to the tv and using have zoomming in or out buttons or ajustment buttons of the sizes of the picture on the screen.Used the devices remotes controls to readjust ur zooming or pictures sizes adjutment.

My kids were playing with the buttons on the tv, and itseems like the picture is now "stretched" vertically - the tops of heads are cut off, and it seems like some of the picture is missing from the sides....


there should be a zoom, or strech, or even the letterbox option somewhere. What your describing is a enlarged picture that doesn't fir the screen, like if I select zoom on my remote.

BLACK GAP ON RIGHT SIDE OF TV SCREEN


This is a sign of an aging horizontal deflection circuit. Go through your initial setup menu and see if the set gives you the option to adjust 'width.' This may have enough range to stretch the video to the edge but it will also affect the geometry of the displayed video.
As of now, the component most likely growing old is an electrolytic capacitor in the horizontal circuit that has lost value. It is usually a bipolar capacitor in the range of 4.7 - 33 uFd. It will likely continue and become more annoying and if you look closely, you can probably see that the geometry of the picture on that side is not as it should be; it will often appear 'squashed' together.
Allowing it to just grow may result in the failure of the flyback (a high voltage transformer) and/or the main power transistor that drives it.

Xbox picture gets cut off on the sides


try fiddling with the tv menu. most tvs have the zoom function now and also the ratio function. try testing those configurations starting from the default. make sure you have the zoom function set at 0 before fiddling with the ratio aspect.

Dark picture (HELP)


Open up the back of the set but be very carefull. Notice a large black block with a large red wire that runs up to the picture tube. on one side of that large block where the thick red wire is comming out of are two controls, one should be marked focus or F and one should be marked screen or S. With the set operating normally and not touching anything else, slowly turn the control marked screen or S clockwish till the picture gets bright enough. If you go too bright the set will shut down or you see small thin white lines so back down on the control. then touch up the focus and your good to go. good Luck.
