1/4'' horizontal picture

I have an Emerson 19" that sometimes when you turn it on I only get a picture about 1/4" tall all the way across the screen If I turn it off and then back on it is ok. Sometimes a very light tap to the side of the box it comes on. The sound is fine. Chuck

Thumbs up

Bad solder connections prevail in the Emerson units.

Open the back of the set, poke and prod around with a non-metallic wand (NOT A PENCIL) of plastic or wood, and find the sensitive spot where you make the picture come and go.

With the set off, of course, use a little 60-40 electronic solder and a low heat soldering iron (NOT A SOLDERING GUN) and do a little wholesale resoldering of connections on the circuit board.

This will usually cure your problem.
