Re: Vertical Line of Blue Down 1/2 an inch from center...

If you just bought this and it had the problem the day you recieved it gey in touch with the seller and see if it had this problem before it was shipped. if it didnt have the sell as well as your self put in a claim with the shipping company for shipping damage. Might be worth a try? Good luck

Re: Vertical Line of Blue Down 1/2 an inch from center...

Usualy a problem with the LCD screen itself, that takes replacing the whole screen to fix. Sorry. Did you know that it had a problem when you bought it? Could also be an internal connector that has gone bad. There are tiny transistors on most displays that control whole rows and columns. It sounds like one went bad, causing a dead, or constant on, column. Unless you are REALLY handy, it will probably need to go to a service center for repair, which could be more expensive then what you paid for the player. Good luck

My sony tv 14 inches model. KV-14jrs in when you switch on the picture shown is black with horizontal line. What could it be the problem?

Line left to right in middle of screen is a vertical circuit failure.

A solder connection, a bad chip in that area----14 inch set not likely to be worth the cost of repair.

My screen has vertical lines that I can't clear

What is happening to your laptop is the power line connecting a few rows of pixels is failing so only partial colors are showing up causing the vertical lines. Usually screen replacement is the only answer to fix it. You can usually find replacement LCD on Ebay.

Blue vertical and hrizontal lines moving slowly

This is usually caused by a ground differential. on the cable box. Solution is to put an F-type cable box ground eliminator on the incoming coaxial cable line. You can test this theory by unplugging the Coax on the INPUT of your cable box. They are less than $12.00. For more info go to and put in your zip code to find the closest in home tech to install one for you.

You have bad capacitors and possibly a vertical IC that is going bad. And check for bad grounds in and around the IC and caps!

When I insert a CD and push play, I get a double image on the screen. There is a vertical line up the center of the screen with the same image on each side.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

For some reason, the chat was cut.  Still, to your concern, check/disable Progressive Scan mode.  Depending on the brand and model number of the DVD player, there would be a P.S. or P.SCAN button on the remote.  In other models, a reset is required.

For additional information, please postback with the brand and model number.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Where do you get the speaker connectors and wires

As an alternative cheap solution, if you have the following available you can do as I've done.
I used an old burnt out ATX power supply 24pin motherboard connector, cut all the wires of about 10 inches and then cross sliced the connector up into 2pin connector pieces. Worked perfect, saved me $ and made some great recycling use of an otherwise useless PSU.

That chassis has a couple of problems I'd check first before writting it off as a bad crt... The vertical Ic can cause the problems you're experiencing. In that unit it's a TDA8177 (vertical Ic) and if it fails you'll find no 10v supply to the HV generator - thus no HV to light the cans. Could also be the HV generator module itself, but more likely vertical Ic before suspecting the HV module. If you hav a dmm you could measure the voltage on pins 7 & 8 or pins 1 & 2 on the HV plug. If you have nothing there it's the generator - if not highly suspect the vertical.
To answer your question - if the blue can were bad red & green would still light depending on the internal short. If all three are out I'd suspect a loss of HV (high voltage) or B+ as it's referenced.
Good Luck!
