The picture on my GE 31GT659 set has been slowly growing bigger over the last 5 years. It cuts off both the right and left side of the picture although no black areas show on screen. (also top & bottom but not as severe) It's like the picture is zoomed in part way. Important info like the timeclock during a football game is off the side of screen.
Are there any adjustments for horizontal and vertical size?
Chassis # CTC187CH
Serial # 630470845
I'm capable of soldering & swapping out whatever parts need changed, but I don't have any test equipment 'cept an old dmm.

The main problem is from theTV menu.I would recommend you press,menu,then settings,then display settings,and last tv screen. After, you'll get options on how you want to make your screen look like.Example:wide screen, Automatic, etc.
what do you mean that the picture streched out.this is a strange problem.as vertical problem does not strech it either have a line inthe middle of the raster, shrink both at the top and bottom of raster,lines run up and down on the raster.kindly explain your problem in detail then i will be able to help you.
Usually when the vertical starts shrinking slowly, it is due to capicators getting out of tolerance in the vertical output section of the chassis. If it can be adjusted out through a service menu, you'll probably need a tech with the right equipment to perform it.
