Question about Philips Magnavox 20MS233S 20" TV
Lately I've noticed that near the top of my screen, the picture is beginning to get distorted, about an inch vertically, and it goes all the way across the screen. The picture in this area bends heavily to the right, and is much brighter and more vibrant than the rest of the picture. I've also noticed that the picture outside the screen isn't quite as brilliant as is was before. When I turn the TV on, the top of the picture is actually about two to three inches from the actual top of the screen, and it slowly moves upward as it warm up, until it reaches the top of the TV where it should be, but it dips slightly in the middle. I'm really unhappy with this thing. I took a chance buying a Magnavox TV because I've always found their TVs to be lacking in many different areas. BUT I liked the sound setup, and it looked as though they have come a way since I last owned one, but alas I've been fooled.
There are some components it the vertical deflection amplifier area that are becoming thermo sensitive with age. It is also possible that there will be parts going off value in the power supply and other areas.
These problems are typical in these sets when they are aged. The cost of the repair may not be worth the investment.
You should take the set in to a service center for an estimate.
