Thomson TV Stuck on letterbox

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!

    That's odd. It asks for the model number on the form that you fill in to post your problem, and then doesn't display it. Well, here's all the information I can find.



    Make: Thomson

    Model: 28DG17UG

    Type: 413/TX807CS GB

    Have the same problem. But I know the problem was caused when entering the service menu. Starting up the tv holding down the text button on your remote. Anyone know how to get back to standard settings?

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.

Using standard on tv remote and normal on cable remote both settings crop the edge of the picture


TVs that use cathode ray tube (CRT) cannot display the correct aspect ratio for movies and modern TV broadcasts unless it is in letterbox form. Unfortunately most of the older CRT TVs do not have a letterbox setting.

JVC AV-32870 Power button is missing


I had a friend that had the exact same problem! We did use a remote to turn the tv on and then it was a matter of setting up the menu settings. It was trial and error, but it was worth it. As far as getting the power button replaced, I would recommend call and ask a TV repair person - but the remote worked just fine for my friend.

Sanyo stuck on video mode


Yippie, I figured out a solution that worked!!! I have a univeral remote from comcast, on that remote near the bottom left is a small button that says (input) tv/vcr, press that one time and whala!! the tv video screen was gone, I had to manually change the channel from the tv channel button on the unit. once I changed the channel to 3, my universal remote worked... the button is the second one from the bottom left... I was on hold with sanyo for a long time and just kept trying on my own, so good luck!!!!
