Your problem sounds like it could be a vertical sweep fault. Sounds like a vertical output IC or a capcitor in the sweep power supply or a waveshaper capacitor. All these faults, should only be checked and replaced by a pro tech, as there is a safety issue involved with the High voltage, and your going to need to know how to use the equipment to check these parts as in this case , you most likly wont be able to look and see whats wrong or what part is defective. Good Luck

Watching espn hd, the picture cuts off on one side. How do I adjust this? The ESPN bug is well within the border in the right hand lower corner, but a chart that comes on perodically during play...

There's a resolution/aspect ratio you can adjust in the picture menu, or straight from the remote. Choose the size you want on ESPN that best fits the picture while watching it.

Picture Moved Up

Check the cable and connections between the TV and your cable line. Make sure the contacts are clean, no bent pins, etc. Try replacing the cable if possible.

4.14.1 Understanding Viewing Features
Your LCD HDTV features four viewing modes and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)/Picture-by-Picture (POP) mode.
You can switch viewing modes using the remote control.
4.14.2 Viewing Modes
Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3).
Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom.
Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.

Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in widescreen
mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode
will return to widescreen.

High Definition Channels leave bar on top and bottom

More then likely it has to do with the aspect ratio of what you're trying to watch. Most DVD's are in widescreen format (2.40 to 1) like you would see in a theater but an HD tv is a 16 by 9 format or 1.85 to 1. Look at the DVD case and see. Also some HD shows are in widescreen so you'll get the same thing. You're only option to fill the screen is get movies in 1.85 to 1 or use your zoom functions however these do tend to distort the picture.

Need to center the picture

This is a defect in the vertical scan amplifier. It is not an adjustment. Most of the time there are a number of capacitors in the vertical deflection amplifier that can cause this type of fault. Sometimes the output drive IC can cause this fault, but more rarely.

An experienced service tech can locate the defective parts and replace them. The average time involved is about 1 to 1.5 hours.
