Re: Can only see a horrizontal line

If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!

Problem with tv

The problem is sometimes caused by the vertical output integrated circuit (IC) failing, but usually it's bad solder connections. If you or someone you know is comfortable with electronic soldering, a few minutes spent resoldering the IC pins to the circuit board will often solve the problem. Failure of these connections is common because the IC gets quite hot (and it's mounted on a metal heat sink). The heating and cooling cycles cause the solder joints on the circuit board to crack. You can usually see the trouble with light and a magnifying glass; gray grainy joints instead of shiny connections, and often visible ring cracks around the pins.

Television response.

Try to locate the line of sight sensor on your TV that does not respond to the remote. The lack of response indicates that the sensor on the TV needs to be cleaned. It does not take much (dust, wax, cleaner residue) to block the signal.

Flickering multi-colored line in the middle of the screen.

You have a failure in the vertical deflection circuit. This could be either a bad vertical chip, the power supply that runs the chip or a bad capacitor in that circuit. This is usually a repair best left to a professional. There is a small possibility that it could be bad solder connections. If genlty tapping the unit temporarily solves the issue you can try and resolder the pins on the vertical chip LA7841 is the part number. There is also a resistor 1 ohm 1 watt. If that resistor is open you can assume the IC is bad
