(There didn't seem to a similar pot to do the same thing
horizontally, incidently, is this normal?)
Any ideas as to what is the problem???


If it's about the only pot on the chassis, you may have been adjusting +B
instead op heighth... Your TV probably has a service mode to do the
latter.

Well there were also two 'pots' on a black unit for brightness
and focus as well, however this was the only pot I could find
on the mainboard, basically you a adjusted it with a crosshead
screwddriver, I had a good look but thre were no more, I though
perhaps there would be one for horizontal adjust too?
Not sure what you mean by B+.
Anyway I took it back to the shop and eventually got my money
back, despite the idiot/conman making it out it was not faulty by
using a picture where the fault was hard to see.
No doubt they will rebox it and sell it again. They still have all the
other faulty sets for sale, despite them knowing they are all faulty.
I am thinking of giving a call to trading standards, but I expect they
are as bent as Currys.

is, or the control you refer to as 'brightness'.

You removed the cover, tampered with three adjustments and then took it back
to the shop for a refund. Who's the conman here?

Be sure to tell them you tampered with the TV, seeing as how you're straight
up and honest, and Currys are allegedly conmen.

Oh yes I do its the one which controls focus and brightness, of course I
only
'assumed' it was brightness because if said brightness below it, of course
you
being so knowledable will no be able to inform me that it does not actually
control brightness at all :O|

It's not an alleged one it's a real one.

Yes that's an electronic degree not a TV/radio repair course, so not
something
which a degree course would cover. The technicians term for the high voltage
supply in a tube amplifier would not be something you would be expected to
know.

The man who claimed it was not faulty, by comparing it to a set with
the same fault.

other faulty sets for sale, despite them knowing they are all faulty.

There is nothing wrong with 'tampering with it, no notice to say otherwise,
that makes u a conman.

Well if you don't think they are conmen go and buy a Ferguson FTV210N from
them ( Currys UK) and put your money where your big mouth is.
I would be interested to hear your view of them after you had purchased one,
but no doubt will come up with some lame excuse for not doing so,

You're missing the point here, Albert. All you had to do was return the TV
in the same condition as you bought it, untampered with that is, and they'd
have given you a refund, no hassle at all.

You have chosen to make a rod for your own back. You prefered to whine about
a shop before they even had the chance to offer you a refund or replacement,
and now that they have done so, you still aren't happy.

OF course thats a lie, they initially refused to return it, had I not done
my homework
I would still have the faulty TV. However I had done my homework.

They didn't offer me one I had to insist, a more spinelss person would have
got nothing
at all
