I`ve just been given a 28 inch TV, CRT. It turns on fine, but the picture
is squashed horizontally, leaving black borders about 2 inches wide either
side of the screen. I`m NOT going to repair this myself, for the obvious
reason that messing about inside a TV when you don`t know what you`re doing
is a quick way to a stylish death :-) Is it likely to be worth trying to
get it repaired for a few quid - is it likely to be a quick enough repair to
make it a worthwhile foreigner to a TV repairman who might be calling to
take a look at our main set (under warranty). Is it likely to be a lot of
broken bits that would cost more than the TV would cost to replace (about
£100), or a case of take the back off, twiddle a screwdriver to adjust a
setting and then bugger off?
Thanks for your help!
