Philips Magnavox TV reduced to horizontal line intermittently

I have a Philips Magnavox Model TS2556 C121, Chassis 25F800 7583. When turned on, the picture is a horizontal band around the center of the screen with perfect audio and I can change channels etc. After about half an hour I get the full screen and this goes on intermittently after that. This looks like a capacitor issue (my limited electronics tell me capacitor is either charging or discharging incorrectly (or leaking). Not sure if it is the vertical or horizontal circuit that is the issue (and how to locate either) Ayy tips will be highly appreciated. Not sure if Pee Wee is still on the forums but he seems to have quite some experience with Magnavox TVs

RE: Philips Magnavox TV with a DVD recorder

My friend bought a SV2000 DVD recorder to use on her Magnavox TV (model # 25f800 7583) but the tv is mono. She connected the coaxial correctly, but the tv itself does not let her turn to AUX, INPUT, etc. through the remote nor on the tv itself. It only has a MENU button, but it does not work. She's tried channels, 2,3,4 and went below 2 to see if the AUX/ INPUT would be accessed that way, but no luck. Any suggestions?
