Re: help problem with picture

This sounds like theres a capacitor somewhere in the vertical sweep circuit. You can replace the capacitor if you have a soldering iron and some electronic experience on trouble shooting tv sets. It is most likely from what you described the capacitor off the high voltage transformer that supplys the b+ to the vertical output IC. A repair person should be able to give ya a ball park on the cost as Im thinking somewhere from 85 to 135 Bucks depending on if theres only one cap goiung bad or could be a couple or more starting to dry up. So its your ball now .. Do you wanna spend that much to repair the set Do you like the set? is the set over 3 to 5 years old? Its up to you. Good Luck

There are white thin horizontal lines across the top 2" of Toshiba 27DF47 TV. Can this be repaired and how much would this repair cost?

Check and replace all the electrolytic capacitors at its vertical output section circuit. There will be five or 6 of them. Replace all.

I am trying to help my neighbor. She has a Sanyo flat screen tv Model DS20930. The picture she gets is a thin line across the center of the screen.

Set the brightness, contrast and colour control of that TV to minimum. Watch it in a dark room whether ther are thin white lines across the screen, at about an inch apart, from bottom to top of the screen. If there are lines, that TV needs screen control adjustments. That is, now the screen voltage given to the picture tube went high to some reasons. If you have confidence that you can adjust it, I will guide you.
Open the back cover of that TV. Locate the LOT [Line output Transformer], usually one red thick wire is connected to the top of the picture tube with the help of a rubber ****** and clip. In most TVs it can be located and can be seen as the back cover opened. There are two variable control, fitted, integrated to LOT. Normally the upper one is marked as focus, and the lower one is marked as screen. You shoud adjust this control to avoid these lines.
It is a live service, that is the TV must be switched on during this time, and take causion in every respect not hurt by yoursef and the TV. Keep the children away from you, and an other adult person beside you is better. A liitle turn counterclockwise will remove this problem.

Only thin white line across my toshiba tv

This is an easy repair if you've ever soldered and would not be too costly for a repair shop to do it for you. The problem is a bad Vertical Output IC (usually mounted on an aluminum heat sink with the part on it labeled LA78?? ) and 1 or 2 bad capacitors. Some times you can even fix the problem by re-soldering the contacts of the IC- To find the IC follow the 4 wires that come from the Yoke (which is a contained coil of wires slipped over the neck of the picture tube(s)) back to the board. 2 of the wires go to the horizontal o/p and 2 to the Vertical o/p the thinner gauge wires are for the vertical.

Horizontal white lines across top of TV screen

Hi I had the same problem. Broken white lines across the top of the screen. This is called overscan. You need to go into the Setup menu, other settings. 16:9 overscan needs to be on. Hope this helps.It solved our problem.

TV Picture Reduced to Line across the Middle

This is called field-collapse. Either

1. The problem lies in the vertical deflection voltage-doubler circuit. The usual fault is a single capacitor of 100uF/35V that has failed. It is normally connected to a rectifier diode right at the vertical IC. Replacing the capacitor usually gets it working perfectly again.


2. The vertical drive IC has failed.

If you are finicky around technical work, then a reputable local repair shop in your locality should do it quickly for you and charge only labour.

this is a convergence issue. it is caused by one of three things
1. a bad convergence board
2. a bad fuse feeding the convergence circut
3. a bad relay feeding the convergence circut

whatever the one it is they all have the same result, an inoperative convergence curcut. needs service .

if it is still under warranty, great. If not the parts can cost up to $300 and labor can be the same
