Vertical and horizontal adjust went out with black and white TV pretty much.I remember those days too...what would kids nowadays do???lol.Anyhow,the fact that it clears up sometimes when you slap it should mean that the screen is fine.Something on the circuit board may need repair.Unfortunately,I have searched for diagrams for TV's online many times and only authorized shops have the access required.I just checked westinghouse,not even a way to sign in if I were a reapir shop.So,needless to say, a shop will have to check it out.Sorry That's all I can suggest and good luck!

No picture, Horizontal line center of screen


Can be a case of vertical collapse. If this is the case, then the vertical oscillator and/or the vertical driver circuit are faulty. .

You can take you problem directly to zenith. They have a customer service post available here

My RCA tv picture is jumping


Vertical jumping may have a vertical hold issue, horizontal may have a horizontal hold issue. Most older tv sets will have some knobs or adjustable screws for vertical and horizontal hold. Turn your set on and check for these knobs on the back of your set and adjust until your picture is in as well as you can get it

Picture is too wide to fit screen can not see complete picture


hi there, i don't know your TV brand but this could be of help anyway. there is an adjustment for horizontal and vertical width. you can manually adjust the setting until it fits the picture on the screen. for standard TV it has trimmer in the CRT board. If in your case you have a soft adjustment in the remote control try to adjust it. Learn how the menu works just look for the picture adjustment.
Good luck, please rate and vote.

No mounting instructions in package. will it work on an LG 47 inch led tv? To many peices in the package?


It should work with the LG 47". you need to find the correct bolts that fit the mounting holds on your TV. There should be a bag of bolts packaged with the Omnimount.

With the tv off, my new Sony kdlvl160 appears to have lines on the lcd screen. Am I seeing things? This is the second one and they seem to be in same general area. TV is mounted to wall so maybe this is...


What directions are the lines?

Are these lines lit up, or just a dark pattern on the display?

If it appears like the LCDs are switching on (e.g. this line is perfect vertical or horizontal line that appears to have color when lit with a flashlight), then there is likely an electronics fault that is causing a tiny amount of current to reach the LCD driver chips for a vertical or horizontal column/row. that would concern me as something that may get worse over time.

Most TVs are built to be rigid enough for wall mounting, so this should have no effect. The only crazy thing I can think of is if somebody put a toooo long screw in one of the mounting holes in the TV and is contacting some part of a circuit. Likely? No. Possible? maybe.

4.14.1 Understanding Viewing Features
Your LCD HDTV features four viewing modes and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)/Picture-by-Picture (POP) mode.
You can switch viewing modes using the remote control.
4.14.2 Viewing Modes
Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3).
Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom.
Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.

Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in widescreen
mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode
will return to widescreen.
