    Im not 100% this is in the right place so if not feel free to move it please.

    Having problems with one of our TV's. It is a normal Ferguson TV and about a year old. Basically the TV seems as though it is zoomed in and we cannot change it.

    Example of what i mean is that the heads of people are cut off, the bottom of the TV is also the same. If you bring up the Digital TV guide you can only see the top item, not the bottom one, if you see what i mean.

    We have entered picture set up and gone through all the options, panaromic etc but still the same problems all the time. Every now and again it will sort itself out but only a couple of times.

    Any ideas? Thanks all

    It sounds like a fault, can you post the model no taken from the rear label?

    That model is made by Vestel and uses the 11AK45 chassis.
    It probably has a corrupted "EPROM" which is an 8 pin IC and will need replaced...shouldn't be too expensive to get repaired.

    Thanks for that. It is under warranty. Is it worth getting it fixed out of my own pocket or just claim off the warranty? Not sure if thats too much hassle.

    I would claim under warranty as the labour charges could be high.
