Problem with image, one bar across middle of screen

Hi, my TV turns on, I can hear the sound and change channels. My problem is that there is no picture, only a small section in the middle of the screen that has activity going on. What can possibly be wrong? Is the problem something that I can fix? If so what replacement part do I need? Thanks, Jaime

Re: Problem with image, one bar across middle of screen

If you small section is from side to side then you have a vertical sweep falure and is probably the vert output IC. If you have experience with tvs then you know what to do if not then i would highly recomend that you take the set to a repair person for an estimate as theres 100's of volts inside the set even if its unpluged. Good luck

JVC picture turns into a single line in middle of screen.

This is caused due to random falure of vertical scan circuits. It generally is caused by dried out capacitors or bad driver IC. Unfortunately it will get worse. If you fail to turn the TV off quickly you will burn a permenant horizontal line on the tube. Trip to the repair shop I am afraid.

White line through the middle of the screen

If it is just a vertical fold over then resolder its pin, if not work then you have to replace the vertical IC. Usually you can still hear sounds from the channel program it is tune. This applies to a crt type tv.

If you are not inclined in electronics.Its better to have it check by the expert. Live nasty voltages inside.

"snow" screen, full volume, remotes don"t work

good day
due to the long time the buttons were not used, they tend to get stuck and this causes channels eighter to stay in one station or continou scanning. it could be resolved by spraying WD40 on the buttons and press it many times then dry it before operating the unit.

civilman, the first set has either no high voltage or is collapsed vertically, until someone checks for high voltage there is no concrete answer, the AV27730 is vertical collapse from your description, either the voltage to the vertical IC is missing or the vertical IC has failed, not a big deal cost-wise, hope this answers your questions, if not e-mail me back, good luck, BMW Rider

Tv screen goes blank with a line across middle

Hi Andy.

This is a straight forward repair & wont be expensive.
The problem is either dry joints on frame chip or component going thermal and failing at a certain temperature.
Cost for repair will be between £35.00 to £55.00 ask for a quote first.

Image burning on my screen

This is called BURN IN. BURN IN usually occurs when any one picture remains on the screen for an excessive amount of time. To my knowledge, there is no way to remove these annoying "brandings," however, they can easily be avoided by changing the channel on the TV, or not leaving the TV powered on continuously (especially on just one channel).
