Question about GE 31GT659 31" TV

1 Answer

I need to know how to access the verticle hold to adjust TV

I've got a GE 31GT659 31" which has been a great TV for the past 10 yrs, but now the picture has streched out vertically cutting portions of peoples heads and chopping off the score during sports. The Chasis # is CTX187CN2. Please let me know if you need more information.

    Sorry about the confusion, but I'm not the most technical person to describe the problem. What I think is happening is the Verticle size of the picture needs to be reduced to fit the television screen. I thought I would need to access the service menu to adjust the picture size, thus fixing the problem. Thanks for your help and I hope I explained it a bit better.

The phone is 5 yrs old but the receiver has crashed to the floor often. Now, the outbound sound apparently fades badly at times. Any suggestions?

you may be able to find a replacement handset on Ebay, they sell many such things...it probably is not worth trying to repair. Electronic devices have, and have had for many past years, a stipulation in the electronics area.
Anyway, try Ebay, keep looking, you may find a replacement.

I have a 97 ford probe 4cyl. I'd like to adjust the tps with a voltage meter, but want to be sure I do it right! My check engine light isn't on but car idles rough. I've had the tps replaced in...

wheather your a2 .0 or 2.5 at idle key on engine off its is 0.7V to 1.1 V. you test it by doing a sweep, with your volt meter,voltage should increase with smooth throttle movement there should be no drop out or glitches and at wide open throttle you should reach 4.5 V , (***) wide open throttle

I don't have this saw, but my guess is the adjustment is underneath the table, holding the blade assembly. You'll have fun standing on your head trying to adjust it (loosen, tighten, try again) but that may be the only way. Good luck.

How do adjust verticle picture on Hitachi 46F510

You can adjust vertical height through the service menu, but i would recomed that you trouble shoot the vertical section as its probably a solder joint , leaky diode or something that is causing the problem. Often its bad solder at the vertical output IC itself that causes that sympton.

Convergence Pattern

Hi, Your problem is in the convergance? Ever done the convergance on a proj tv? If you have, then you can find the convergance board behind the speakers as i recall IF YOU HAVEN'T DON'T START NOW. UNLESS,,, you have the service manual, or the knowledge to, and the test patterns neccassary, to do it. Each color has approx 10 adjustments for vertical deflection, and 10 for Horiz. IF YOU TRY IT and don't have any idea,, you WILL make it worse!!! It takes about 4 hrs to do it right for a qualified tech so ya better think of it as an all day affair! good luck
