The picture is oversized and the printing as in the stock ticker or in the sports scores can only be seen a little bit on the bottom. Can't find anyway to resize the picture.


Zenith sets, like most others now, are adjusted electronically through a service menu. You'll need your original remote control (or a Zenith-brand universal replacement with a MENU key) to access the menu. Press and hold the MENU button until the channel number and time display goes away, then press 9, 8 , 7, 6, ENTER. This puts you into service mode.

In service mode, CHANNEL UP and CHANNEL DOWN move through the different settings, and VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN change the values. Make sure you write down the original value of anything before you change it so you can put it back if necessary. One of the reasons the manufacturers hide the service menu is because the set can be damaged by incorrect settings to some of the parameters.

On some models, you can't get to all the parameters unless you change one called F MODE from 00 to 01. You might need to do this on yours.

The list of parameters varies by model and features. I haven't worked on a Zenith in a long time so I don't remember exactly what yours says, but you want to find two settings for V SIZE (vertical size) and V POS (vertical position). Adjust the size first by lowering the value until the top and bottom of the screen are black. Then adjust the position so the picture is centered (black strips close to equal size). Finally, increase the size until the picture fills the screen again. It's normal to adjust for a little overscan, meaning you push the top and bottom a little bit out of view. If you stop too soon, on some channels you might see flashing lines at the top of the picture.

When you're finished adjusting, turn the TV off to exit service mode. If you needed to change the F MODE setting, put it back to 00 first. Your picture should be properly sized after all this.

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.

All I get is a squished picture in the middle 40-50 percent of the screen. The top and bottom parts are black. Also, in using my remote's up/down buttons, all I get are channels 2 to 13. If I press channel...


Are you by any chance using Closed Caption?
The channels that do appear are they full screen?
How about what the picture is on a DVD through the Video inputs.?
Please fill us in on these suggestions.

Good evening, I've gone through the manual and I can't get my TV to show 100hz (always 50hz), also on some channels I cannot get the picture to fit the screen (it's 32''). Any help would be greatly...


Well, first the 100Hz issue. Your TV will display a descriptor or the signal it is receiving, not a descriptor of the picture you are watching. Your TV panel has a native resolution and frequency. In your case, that frequency is 100Hz. Everything, like it or not, must be converted to 100Hz for the TV to work. In your manual, you are simply adjusting setting which smooth the picture and make it flow better than it would at 50Hz. This feature is slight of hand and is probably working just fine. As for the picture fitting the screen; HD programs fill the screen of HD channels.... SD (Standard Definition) programs use black bars on each side when on HD channels. You can use any available wide or picture size feature your TV may have to stretch the picture. You may be unable to stretch the picture, due to restrictions (some TVs will not resize HD formats).

Can't read stuff at bottom of screen


it is possible the picture format is set to stretched. look for a button on the remote that can do this. it could also be the signal. try looking at a different channel that has lettering along the top and bottom and determine if the entire picture looks like it needs to be moved up. if after all this you can still determine that the picture is misaligned post the model number and i can help you move it up.

Vertical Stretch


You need to adjust "vertical height" in the service program. You need to put the set in "service mode" to do this adjustment. If you google "enter service mode RCA F32665" you should find the procedure. It will be listed in abbreviated letters such as VERT SIZE or VERT HT. Follow the instructions for entering service mode and saving the data closely!! The data you change will be listed as a number between 1 and 63. The number will only need to reduced by a small amount and you can still see the picture behind the data and watch it shrink as you adjust the number down.Always burn the new number to memory (if required) before exiting service mode. Good luck

Adjust manual picture on TV


Sounds like you may have caps going bad . Adjusting may tend to only stretch the the picture too much . Also when you say horizontal are you saying the top and bottom are closing in ? If yes then your problem is in the vertical section . If side to side then check the horizontal section . Good luck

Sanyo TV stretches outwards and shakes


If the picture is closing (top to bottom) and goes back to normal when you hit it you probably have a bad solder connection on IC501 (location number) the vertical deflection IC on a metal heat sink. If you mean outwards as in side to side as it looks in the picture, I don't know specifically where to solder but get a magnifying glass and look for suspected bad solder connections. Look for the word width if it is there. It is good that you a confident in soldering.
