I'm not an electronics whiz and could use some advice. I have a 31" JVC AV31BP6 TV that has the following problem: During certain dark scenes there is a sliver thin white line along the left side of the screen...very annoying when the picture fades to complete black in a dark room and this little line is beaming back at the viewer. It seems like the picture needs to be expanded to fill the entire screen. Also, the top left corner seems to be unable to go completely black. I managed to get a hold of the programming codes and figure out which one was for horizontal position but shifting the picture to the left didn't make any difference. I haven't been able to figure out which code might adjust horizontal picture size. Anybody have any ideas what could be causing this and how to fix it? Should I take it in for service? I did have some large unshielded Klipsch towers sitting fairly close to the TV for a few years but didn't notice any rainbow effect. Does it need to be de-gaussed? Any techies out there with some helpful hints? I hate to drop $150 on diagnostics when I could put it towards a new TV if that's what I need.
