Re: tv picture is smushed verticaly

Another vert problem. The only way to fix this is replace the vert output IC and maybe a cap in the waveshaper that made the IC go bad. If you have no electronics experience then i would let a pro do the repair as it should cost more then 125 to 150 bucks or so. Good luck

I want to clean inside the screen & picture tube lamps but do not know how to open tv my tv is toshiba 57h81, picture is little dusty

just take out all screws, use compressed air, be careful, etc, screw back on. some models require u to remove the speakers grill or something by pulling them off to reveal the screws
here these pics may help you a lot (scroll down a little, and refresh if u see no pics, some guy named pittdog1 posted them)

Picture problems

you have a vert sweep colapse. Fisrt thing is to get a schematic diagram and find the vert. output Ic and the clamper diode. Measure the voltage on both sides. If its low then its apossibility that the Ic was drawing loads of current and blew out the b+ feed resistor. Look on the schematic and trace back the voltage line from the vert output ic back to the sweep power supply on the secondary of the flyback transformer. check the limiter resistor to the feed and if its open replace the cap right there the resistor as well as the vertical output Ic ALL AT ONCE!!! If you dont you will cause it to go out again in a short time. Good Luck.. If you post the vert part of the schematic I will be more then happy to assist you with this repair.
