Re: TV has cloudy, blurry haze

The two symptoms are related and are associated with the high voltage transformer,since the problem developed overnight is going to the help of a qualified technician to diagnose the cause,if you are familiar with tv service look at the horizontal output transformer for signs of damage but be careful,there are dangerous voltages present.Or be safe and call for help.

Hi.. Mine is a sansui tv and I bought it 3 years back. Now it is showing a horizontal line on the screen. Sound is fine but I can't see the picture, I just see one white horizontal line on tv...

The problem is vertical failure. Vertical output section to your TV ahs the fault. You ahve to check the vertcial output circuit for any component failure or loose solderings.

I have owned an emerson tv for two years now. All of a sudden the picture has become very blurry and white. It is not the cable connection and a DVD is also white and blurry. Even the input channels are...

you must open the back cover of tv, and then things you should do is set "SCREEN" adjustment on the flyback transformer. you must turn it counterclockwise to reduce and decrease the level of screen brightness. turn screen adjustment gradually until the horizontal blanking lines disappear from the screen. and blurred images will be sharp again

My 27" ( aprx 6 yrs old)Tv first had only a horizontal line across the screen about 1/2" wide, good sound but no picture, now it only clicks like its turning on and off when you plug the tv in, no pictue...

It has gone into a self protect mode where it will shut down because you have a fault in the frame stage of the TV (horizontal line). This will most likely be a failure of the frame output IC. Replace this & you should restore the normal picture.

RCA F32650 32" White lines with hazy white flickering

Absolutely right about the transistor and also check any adjacent resistors to the transformer and to the line output transistor. Good luck.

Tv not working

this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!

Blurry tv

Sounds like theres a leaky capacitor in the screen drive circuit. I have seen this problem also be a gassy crt but was able to clean off the grids of the CRT with a crt/rejuvinator. It happens because of low emmissions in the tube and when white is on thats a mix of all the colors, so the tube works harder. I bet when you whatch a movie and the scene changes suddenly to a white or brite scene the pic looks a little washed out. If this is not the case then I aggree with the Pravin and try it on another TV just to be sure .. This is not a repair for a consumer to do, though however it is only a three year old set you stated, so there should be life left in the tube, so im kinda thinking a capacitor is bad. Seek out a yechnician to check this out for you as a TV is not a place to see it you can fix it or to exoeeriment with. Good Luck
