    I am trying to access the service menu for my US NTSC Philips TV (19PS50)
    because the vertical alignment is screwed up (after moving house). I have
    tried the "062596 menu" method, but it doesn't get me anywhere. Am I doing
    something wrong, or is there another code?

    Any ideas gratefully received. I am not a particularly teccy person, and
    have no intention of removing the back cover.

    TIA

    I would have to concur with Daniel on this.
    It will probably be a fault that needs to be fixed before even attempting
    any alignments.
    This chassis requires a special service remote or compair interface to get
    to the service codes.

    Good Luck,
    Bill Jr

    Be sure that service menu options did not get screwed by only moving the
    set. There must be a hardware fault. Correcting this fault may be easy for a
    tech iff the service menu remains intact. If you mess with these menus, you
    will not only make the problem worse but have to pay a more expensive bill
    for the repair, or if the repair man doesn't notice someone screwed with
    that menu you may end up with a less functional or not so optimally aligned
    set once repaired.

    Thanks all of you for the replies.

    The fault is simply that the bottom 5% of the picture is no longer visible.
    For example, the tickers running across the screen of news channels is only
    partially visible.

    Any easy fix for this?

    Thanks

    Check if when cold it's fine and clips picture when warms up...
    It would be a common problem on Philips TVs using TDA3654Q for vertical
    deflection, it's defective and needs replacement.
