Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
My Thomson TV was working fine and then a friend played with the remote and ever since, it has been stuck with a squashed viewing area. The viewable area of the screen is reduced at the top by about 2cm and about 5cm on the bottom, squashing the image, and there are 3 thin lines, red green and blue, running across the top. When widescreen movies are played on it, it just squashes them even more. I've tried all sorts of button combos to fix it but nothing works. I'd really appreciate any help. Thanks!
Thank You Matt, This is not an enhanced set. So your friend couldn`t have changed the aspect ratio.
That unfortunately leaves you with a problem in the vertical circuits of the chassis .There is a capacitor going bad. I recommend you take it to your repair shop. First ask for an estimate before you decide you want to repair it. There are no expensive parts involved. Mostly service and labor charges.
