Sorry to burst the other techs Bubble but APEX does support there sets as well as there customers . I guess the other tech may be well quilifiyed, but NOt authorized by Apex. Apex is just like most other companys. They won't give much support to unauthorized companys, BUT they are great with the consumer. your problem is a vert IC goes bad in these sets a lot as the capacitor off the B+ feed off the HI voltage transformer becomes leaky. A good local shop should be able to fix it NO problem for less the 175 bucks Good Luck. Any problems finding a service agaent call 866-427-3946
It is not clear what you mean by "the picture does not fit the screen". Usually the picture size is determined by the TV microprocessor based on information which it receives. If it is not displaying the picture properly this circuit is probably bad. The bad news is Apex does not support their products and it will probably be tough or impossible to fix this.
