As previously mentioned, try a known good DVD to the same connection (BE SURE TO USE A DIFFERENT CONNECTING CABLE,as your connect cable may be at fault) Also try any of your other inputs to the TV to eliminate 1 or more input issues.
There are two adjustments on your flyback. If there is not an access in the back of the set to turn the adjustments then you need to take the back off of the tv. One adjustment is for brightness and the other is your focus. Just slowy turn the adjustment right or left until the picture gets clearer and your done.
Press MENU,then press < or > to display SETUP menu, press V until TV/cable is highlighted. Press < or > to highlight TV or cable depending on which you use. Press V to select CH Program,press < or > to start channel programming,when completed appears,press CH + or - ...hope this helps..
If you are using a DTV coverter box, you may have changed the aspect ratio with your remote control. look for a button marked "aspect" or "picture size" use that to change size.
If you have a cable box, you may have a similar button.
Or you may find a picture size adjustment on your TV remote.
If you do not have "aspect" button on your remote try going to set up menu and look for picture size.
Older TVs used to have a vertical size adjustment at the back. look in the manual.
If none of the above, you have a biiger problem with the TV internal parts needing attention
If you are comfortable on doing adjustment with working TV then take off back cover of TV and check flyback transformer, there you would see 2 control knobs, upper knob if to adjust focus. rotate it CW or CCW to obtain maximum focus on TV screen. Put back cover and enjoy.
I had this problem on a symphonic 27 inch TV I just bought from a friend
who no longer had a remote.What I did was bought a universal remote (a specific one that someone
told me about) for 8 bucks at walmart and I was then able to switch to
game mode with the Input select on the remote. The remote I bought that
actually worked is this one: http://www.amazon.com/Philips-Magnavox-PM435S-4-Device-Universal/dp/B00006686A/ref=acc_glance_ce_ai_-2_1_tit/002-3174824-8273629 Make
sure you look at it before you buy it and make sure it has a button
that specifically says "input" on it. I know that some of the universal
remotes don't have an input select button or one that doesn't work. As
long as you get a Philips-Magnavox that has that button, you should be
ok. Much better solution that paying 30 bucks for a new remote
specifically for the TV. Hope this helps.
