My Sears TV model 774 15481 change the picture become very slim horizontal

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

SOURCE: Zenith TV has a big black box in the middle of the screen.

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 !

SOURCE: screen has green corner at first and may changeto pinks and green

It sounds like the De-gauss circuit isnt working. It demagnetizes the TV tube.

It's something only a tech can fix though.

Picture suddenly went out and the lamp and temp lights in front circle are blinking.


Hi,If your tv is between 2-4 yrs most likely it's time to replace the lamp.If you hear continuous clicking it could be the ballast which is the board that powers the lamp.If you hear buzzing it could be the color wheel,which is a spinning wheel that creates the color on your tv.God bless you!

I have a Slim-View LXI TV Model # PTV 515 AHO1 Has no Picture


while i dont have a true answer, I can tell you its a magnavox tv sold by sears produced back in 93. Ours just started doing this last week. I couldnt find any help online so we replaced it with a new led flat panel. WOW what a difference, the LXI was great for the past 17 years but the new tvs are better. We put the LXI in the garage because we couldnt throw it away. That tv was like a family member, if i figure out how to fix it i will post the how to.

No power, picture or sound


Contacted Sears and they are sending a Samsung Tech to fix my TV. Others had no luck getting a response. Sears did not argue about Warranty.

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
