Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem , a few questions coming up and please note that it may take a few minutes between replies;

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Is the picture too wide ,too tall etc. or you just want to know how to adjust it ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Picture too tall
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

O.k then this is an older tube tv with deflection circuits and the vertical deflection could be acting up .

But first lets check the Verizon box .

If you look at their remote , can you see a button called something like zoom, size, format, aspect , HDzoom etc. , often has a pound (#) symbol on it or a star and sits below the digits 7 or 9 , if so thentry to press that button repeatedly to toggle between the different aspect ratio`s.

Tell me if you find such a button

Does not work

I would like to terminate this enquiry - you indicated that the problem is probably with my box. I already knew that.
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Never said the box was the problem , I asked you to look for the aspect or format button which you obviously don't seem to know about and now that perhaps you found it and said " does not work " you said you knew the box was the problem but guess what , now the box is NOT the problem but your tv would actually would be the problem if this is too tall only

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I found the aspect button but it did not cure the problem. A new box is on its way from Verizon and I will just have to wait.
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

The box will not fix this

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Your tv`s vertical deflection circuit went defective

I`ve repaired 1000`s of those toshiba`s in my 40+ years experience and i can tell you the tv is the problem and is too old to consider a shop repair at some $150 +

No problem , much welcome

As you already have another cable box coming in then might wait to confirm but I would be surprised if there was any difference
