Question about Televison & Video
Hi I have a sears model 774 15481 color tv that all of a sudden went to wide screen although it is not a wide screen tv. The problem occured after my son pressing some combination of the remote buttons on the cable remote or tv remote . I have unhooked the cable box but the screen stays the same. I have unplugged the tv trying to reset it. Other tvs I have hooked up to the set up dont have the same problem. I have tried many things to change the setting on the tv but there is no option for this. Is there a way to reset the tv to factory specs or did something blow in the tv. As I said it was after buttons were pressed on a universal remote. Thanks
After reading other postings, we figured out that it was the caption box, went to menu and turned it off.
Thanks for the great site, we wouldn't have figured it out without it !

It sounds like the De-gauss circuit isnt working. It demagnetizes the TV tube.
It's something only a tech can fix though.
