I have a Sony KD-34XBR960 (the best CRT TV ever!). Unfortunately, when I try to use a DVD player on it, it has a couple problems:
1) the picture is not centered. It sits a little low on the screen. See example here:
2) the picture has minor "shaking". Not bad, but continuous. Was hard to capture in a short video, but I tried here:
I have tried the following:
The picture is centered fine on all other devices (game, VHS, etc) and on regular TV.
I know it's not the DVD player or cables. I used the same DVD player and cables on two other TV's and all works completely fine.
I have tried using different inputs on my Sony TV. Same problems show up on all of them.
I tried other devices on the same input and it worked fine. For example, I tried my VHS player on the same input that my DVD player wouldn't play correctly, and the VHS player, on the same input to the TV, worked fine.
The shaking/jumping is not horrible, but it is continuous. It's also not a really fast shake. As you can see in the video (well, it's actually kind of hard to make out in the video), it's a little slower than you might imagine.
I can take a longer video if you think it would help you figure out what's wrong.
So to me, it seem like it's something specific to the TV for DVD players.
I realize this will likely mean going into the back of the TV and possibly doing some desoldering/soldering, and I'm up for that. I feel I can discharge the tube without killing myself.
If anyone can provide any advice, I'm ready and willing to give it a try.
