Question about Zenith Televison & Video

1 Answer

Can't adjust screen

The screen on my tv has started to shrink. there is constantly a 2" (approx) black space at the bottom of my screen which causes the viewable screen to warp (scrunch up) and make everyone look like they have short little legs and a normal body.

i have gone through the on screen menu hundreds of times but don't find the vertical or horizontal adjustment. i also looked on the back of the tv but there are no manual controls on the computer.

how can i fix this (the screen is otherwise still in very good shape - good color and contrast).

Picture is only in middle of screen, top and bottom of screen is blacked out


If you are watching widescreen format movie or tv programming on a non-widescreen tv, that is how it will appear. The widescreen is a wider picture so to show it on a less wide screen, it has to shrink down to fit. and leave blank space top and botton.

If not, sorry.

You have bad solder connections on the vertical output IC or on one or more of the surrounding components. Good Luck

Bottom of picture is cut off


Usually when the vertical starts shrinking slowly, it is due to capicators getting out of tolerance in the vertical output section of the chassis. If it can be adjusted out through a service menu, you'll probably need a tech with the right equipment to perform it.

Green horizontal lines across screen


try adjusting the green screen control. remove the front bottom panel of the tv by removing any screws holding it in place. gently pull of the front panel, there are gromets holding it in place, you will be able to gently remove the front, just make sure you get all those screws. now reove the small wodden or plastioc panel. now you will see the screen/focus assy. check to see of the screen controls are the top 3 or bottom 3. adjusted the center screen it's the green one, the other 2 are the red & blue. it is best to adjust in a dark room where the lines will show up easier. good luck

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom


It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
