Tv has horizontal line in middle of screen,sanyo ds25390

hi if only a horizontal line across with no video anymore, you have bad either vertical ic or no dc supply b+( vertical ic ) or no output dc coming from the ic. if it is not totally a horizontal white line and you can see a video you must check leak or bulged capacitors at the vertical section near the vertical ic. hope this can help good luck.

No picture, Horizontal line center of screen

Can be a case of vertical collapse. If this is the case, then the vertical oscillator and/or the vertical driver circuit are faulty. .

You can take you problem directly to zenith. They have a customer service post available here

Black screen with bright horizontal line through center

Your vertical IC may need resolder. You may have a bad capacitor or two that created an extra warm IC and create bad grounds. So resolder and check those caps near and around your vertical IC. If you continue to see this horizontal line you may have to replace the vertical IC. And you may as well check all grounds as well. Good Luck and be careful!

I have a 35in Toshiba tv and it come on but have a stright line in the middle of tv.


If the line is VERTICAL and at the centre of the screen it is called LINE COLLAPSE, but when the line is HORIZONTAL this is called FIELD COLLAPSE.

It may be dry joints on the field/frame output IC or it may have gone open circuit. I know that the field/frame output IC's can be obtained, but if you are no good with a soldering iron then you'll have to put it in for service.

It needs repair.
If the line is vertical, then something is damaged on its horizontal circuit section on the mainboard.
If the line is horizontal, the vertical circuit section is damaged.
have it repaired to a qualified service center or person!
avoid switching it to avoid further damage on other parts!

Bright horizontal line across black tv screen

Hi There,
If your picture has collapsed to just a horizontal line across the center of the screen, this indicates that your Vertical Output circuit is bad and needs to be serviced by a qualified technician. I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Green horizontal line in center of screen.

Bad vertical output ic. Also, check resistors and diodes around vertical output ic.

Hello! You have vertical collapse. There are bad solder connections at the vertical output IC. I have repaired MANY panasonic tv's like this. Very easy to repair if you have any soldering experience. If soldering does not fix the problem you need to replace the vertical IC. Good luck

Bright line coming in center of screen

Hi Shailendrar , your problem sounds like vertical collapse , the whole picture has collapsed into a thin , very bright centre line ? maybe the result of dry solder joints , does banging on the side of the tv temporarily fix ? if so , the circuit board requires inspection for bad solder joints . Alternately the vertical chip/transistor may be blown , replace as required. Cheers T
