Maxim 1160 (Thomson) 32" Widescreen CRT - no signal
I was given the above 100 MHz widescreen TV, that's in good cosmetic condition although a bit on the heavy side. I am not sure of the age of the TV, but at I guess I would say 4 years max.
I can't get any signal at all, it's all snow with the channel number along with a no signal label and a countdown. The arial/coax is providing a signal - I have no problem with my existing TV. I have also tried a DVD player in one of the SCARTS, but nothing on any the AVs. In fact it doesn't appear to go to AV mode (blank screen at all, but a label suggests that I am - it's still snow. Everything else appears to be OK.
I don't mind chucking money at it, but would it be worth it?
It also has a band of blank screen of 4CM in hight and another band of blank screen of 2CM at the bottom.

Your going to need the original remote first. then go into the menu and do a channel search on it. if it goes through and finds no channels then the tuners bad. You could have that famous RCA on nboard tuner fault where alot of sheild grounds are bad. This is not a job for the layman. if you cannot get channels by doing a channel scan call out an rca or thompson repair person.

Nice big screen but CRTs are getting old So, if you can't set correct colors with your Hyundai it might have some serious issue with tube. Probably replacement might cost you more then a new new 27" Flat Panel. See some tutorial and info about bad color of CRT

well first of all if anything happens when you push the button then the button works! I think you should leave this one to a professional technician. There is a circuit problem that will require advanced knowledge.
You may sometimes find that even with a television referred to as “widescreen,” widescreen movies still have letterboxing.
This is likely because the movie you are playing is still in the ratio used at a theater.While most televisions are 4:3 for the more square-type or 16:9 for widescreen, a theater screen is much wider still. Unless the movie has been reformatted specifically to 16:9 for your television, you will either see letterboxing or lose portions of the picture by zooming in.
If a movie is available in several ratios, I suggest thinking of all the options before buying.Although purchasing a movie reformatted to 16:9 will prevent the black bars, purchasing it without any reformatting of the size will prevent you losing part of the picture.
FYI:It is very common with Blu-Ray Discs that widescreen means original size, not 16:9.
Sounds like it is a widescreen TV stuck in standard view mode.
Should have a menu option called widescreen or movie format.
Do you see the whole picture squeezed down or is it actually cutting off the sides of it?
