More than likely it's not the crt. If the picture has "foldover" at the top of where the picture is currently, then more than likely there are bad caps. in the vertical scan circuit. If not, the vertical sizing probably just needs to be adjusted. You will have to get in to the service menu to do that.

I have a Sony FD Trinitron 27' Model # KV-27FV310. It is approx 8 years old. After turning it on and watching a full screen for a few minutes; all of a sudden, a line came across half the screen;


top half missing is in vertical circuit of set---if it is a 27 inch and this old consider retiring it and replacing----other option is consider having a shop repair it--a rough guess would be as high as 150 dollars parts and labor is possible for your problems.

How do I change it from wide screen to regular? I have a black area above and below the picture.


Hello
You can set the picture size by remote control itself.

You can vide 480i format programmes in three picture sizes. 4:3, 16:9, and ZOOM
You can change the picture size by pressing the PICTURE SIZE button on the remote control.
4:3 Picutre size
To fill the screen, the top and bottom edges are extedted more widely, although the center of the picture remains near the former ratio.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image size is displayed in its originally formatted proportion.
16:9 picure size
This image displays the size of standard 16:9 with black bars at the top and bottom.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image is displayed with black bars at the top and bottom and stretched wider.

NOTE: If a fixed bar remains on the screen for a long period of time, the image can become parmanantly engrained in the screen and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. Never leave your TV for long periods of time while it is displaying these images.

Zoom picture size [for 16:9 formats]
The entire picture is uniformly enlarged --it is stretched the same amount both wider and taller (retains its original proportion). The right and left edges of the picture may be hidden.
OK.

50 inch wide screen with fuzzy picture


If it recovers by itself, yes, it should be a cheap fix. It's most likely bulged/leaky capacitors in the power supply and flyback area. Check all the capacitors, and in my experience if you see a suspicious one it is best to replace all of them in that area, they are cheap and will save you from more serious issues.

Unable to view fullscreen in hdtv


That is the way HDTV is viewed on many screens as a wide fromat. So you will get top and bottom non-viewable areas. It is the width that gives the full imagery for that format. To have the screen filled you would get a standard 4:3 format like standard TV. HD is a 16:9 format so it is much wider.

JVC TV - BLACK HORIZONAL LINE ACROSS THE TOP OF TV


The vertical circuit is not pulling the top of the picture to the top of the screen (CRT) correctly. Its possible you have a loose wire or device ( after moving ) . If you have vertical agustments on the back , you may be able to adjust the picture taller; if the picture becomes stretched ( non - linear ) then you definately have tv tech only problems. At that point I'd really think twice about a repair and consider a new DTV or HDTV set. If the unit was damaged by a mover , then you may have a claim against them .

Black line problems


Some components in the vertical deflection amp have been going out of spec with age.

The set may no longer be worth to spend money to service it because of its age. However, if you wanted to invest the money, the set is serviceable. Considering its age, the CRT may be soft, and there are many other older components that can soon fail.

I would be considering a new set.

civilman, the first set has either no high voltage or is collapsed vertically, until someone checks for high voltage there is no concrete answer, the AV27730 is vertical collapse from your description, either the voltage to the vertical IC is missing or the vertical IC has failed, not a big deal cost-wise, hope this answers your questions, if not e-mail me back, good luck, BMW Rider
