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.

    llet me say that your set cannot be adjust check your transistors in your vertical sectionand the vertical ic you should be getting 30 volts comming out of the ic if you are not getting the right volts replace ic and transistors.i do not have a schematic at hand to give the position and part number.good luck
