Question about Toshiba 28N33 28" TV

TOSHIBA Model: TV28C30 - No Vertical. Just flat horizontal line.

A couple of days ago I turned my set on and got no picture. Instead, just a flat horizontal line centered in middle of picture tube. No problem with sound. I have no service manual for this TV. So, I am hoping someone will direct me as to which component burned out? Thank you. GerryW

The vertical output IC is most likly bad or has a bad connection on it. Its a stand up IC witha metal heat sink and should start with an LA number. There ciould also be a problem with the B+ feed if you replace the IC and still get no vertical deflection. The parts would be in the sweep power supply and would start with the same first number thats printed on the printed circuit board, that is printed by the vertal sweep IC, meaning if the IC number on the board was IC412, then the B+ supply parts would start with 4 also ie r456, d456,c435 ect ect. The numbers I used are not the actuall numbers just used for referance. If you need a schematic one is available at for a download price of about 24 bucks. Remember though to always be safe and if you have no solid state repair experience, please consult a pro to assist you with this repair. Good Luck Please dont forget to rate this thread.

Gerry, A vetical timebase failure like this is not bad and should not take a Serviceman long to fix if he has the all important service sheet, or circuit diagram and an oscilloscope. It is worth looking in the back, if you can obtain some layout details, and with it switched on, use a long dowel rod to prod the part of the circuit, as it may just be a dry joint, or burnt resistor.

This is a very common problem with Toshiba CRT TV's. There are a couple of electroytic capacitors near the vertical deflection amplifier (VDA) which become leaky, then the VDA blows out. Replace the VDA and the electrolytic capacitors near it (sorry, don't have a schematic to tell you exactly which two); if you just replace the VDA without replacing the caps, the new VDA will justblow up in a matter of seconds-minutes.

1) you have problem with the Raster
2) the main causes are a) raster b) picture c) sound d) synch
3) since this are not video, the problem is raster. your must
test the voltage from section horizontal out +125vdc+vertical output +80v+all other circuit +12vdc
4) test the power supply for defective. see the diagram attached

This is a vertical circuit problem that is either bad connections on the vertical IC or a defective IC. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. Look for a small flat IC attached to a heatsink with about 9-11 pins. It may be marked LA7837 or something similar. Try resoldering the pins first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the IC. There may be defective caps in the circuit as well, but those don't usually cause complete vertical failure. If the picture does not return fully, update this and we'll continue on to the next step.

Black screen, high pitched squeal

A set that has only a 1/2 inch bright line through the middle of the picture, from left to right, has a vertical output IC that is not working correctly. If the 1/2 inch line is in the middle but going up and down, then the horizontal yoke circuit has stopped working. These are problems which should be looked at by a qualified tech, but if the set was purchased 6 months ago then it should still be under the manufacturer's warranty.

No picture, only sound

The set has a shorted vertical output IC, probably a TA8427k. The capacitors around the heat sink of this IC dry out and cause the IC to run hot. The correct repair is to replace the vertical output and the electrolytic capacitors near it. Also use 105 centig instead of the original 85 centigrade. The is some time a pico fuse or current limittng resistor which must also be replaced. This a common problem with Toshiba and is not a bad picture tube. The usual cost of this repair is around $120-150 depending on the integrity of the technician. Scrivitron
