Re: vertical hold

You dont have enough vertical sweep!! Best thing to check is the vert output device and I think its an IC . BUT before that check the b+ going to that device and see if its low. I will run through a silicon diode right next to the ic. Measure both sides of the diode and if theres a big voltage drop then the diodes bad. Now also these sets are common for the b+ filter cap off thge flyback transformer. Its the voltage line that feeds that diode and the vert output section. Now measure all caps out of cucuit as most will measure good if you dont. Also just for giggles right nrxt to the big IC that has the vert ,horizontal video and sound drive there is if im not mistaking the vert parts start with c4-- or the ic will be ic4-- Its a small cap that will sayc4-- attached to nothing but the ground and one pin of the ic. I've seen this cap cause all sorts of vert problems in the past as its the vert waveshaper capacitor for the vert osc/drive. Good Luck

Screen black no sound or picture with line in center

this is a common problem,the vertical hold has been damaged.dont leave the teli. on,the white line will burn the middle of the screen and leave a black mark. You need a new integrated circuit(i.c.) for vertical hold.

Cable plug in back forcefully removed.

The cable conmnector (F-connector) attaches directly to the tuner board. There is only the center connection and the ground connection. This is a simple repair for a shop but requires a bit of practice (you can't melt the inner insulator). The part costs around $2. Check with a local shop for their repair charge.

Hi it's me again the gal who dropped her tv

Yes, you should still have sound, providing that you have an antenna connected and are tuned to a channel. If you have a vcr or dvd player to hook up to it try that and see if you have sound.
No sound while viewing a tuned in channel or via a vcr/dvd player is not a good sign. It may have cracked the PCB inside the tv. A cracked PCB, depending on the severity, can also be repaired.
You really won't know the severity of any internal damage until it is opened up and checked over.
Is the line on the screen Horizontal (left to right) or Vertical (up and down) and is it centered on the screen? A vertical line would indicate that it may be a cracked PCB (Printed Circuit Board).

Connecting dvd/vcr combo with tv and digital cable box.

You trying to put the DVD/VCR combo between the cable box and the TV? OK, cable out goes to vcr in, vcr out goes to tv, I think you got that. Now there should be a tv/vcr button on the vcr/dvd, you need to press that when the unit is on. Also, make sure you are on the correct input on both the vcr and the tv, usually video 1 or AUX and choose line in or L1 on the vcr/dvd. If the tv/vcr button is toggled, itll completely bypass the vcr/dvd player.
