White line horizontially through middle of picture

I have a bush 2167ntx. This telly is a few years old but was working perfectly untill yesterday ,when I suddenly got a thin, bright, white line going horizonialy accross the screen. This has split the picture in the middle. You can still see all the tv picture but the top is a bit distorted (wavy grey lines running accross horizontially) I unplugged the tv set over night and disconected vcr/ dvd. I have tried a different aerial. The line shows on all channels I have no tv fixing knowledge. My loal tv repairer would need me to take the set to his work shop and wants £50 just to look, before quoting. Would it be sensible to do this? or get a new telly? Thanks kaz

Re: white line horizontially through middle of picture

A repair like this is in the vertical drive/output section of the TV set. It could be a simple capacitor causeing this problem or a combination of the capacitor and the output IC. A repair like this should not exceed 120 to 150 US. Is it worth that to you? How much can you replace it for? Good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this thread.

I have a bush colour tv and there is a blue,green,red colour wash right across the picture so people''s faces look half blue,green red....sort of as if there is a rainbow across the screen.. i do not have...

It sounds like your TV may need degausing.
Is your TV situated near to any loudspeakers or other devices with large magnets inside them? Or has anyone been near your TV screen with a magnet???
You need to try to get the screen demagnetised (degaussed). Many TV engineers have a degausing coil that could do this. It only takes around 20 seconds at most.
Some TV's like Mitsubishi have a DG button on the remote, that does this function without the need to call out an engineer! It only needs one press of the button every few years!

Hi. If you leave your tv in standby try switching it off properly at tv switch leave a few hrs then switch on. Have you got hifi speakers or anything that is magnetic near tv if yes move it away from set switch set off wait a few hrs then switch on. Or if the above has not sorted problem the set has a fault with the degause circuit. Its not to bad to repair but you will need to use soldering iron.

I've worked on a few of these sets and have found C2P08 to cause something like rolling bars in the picture and have found C2P05 to cause lines jumping in the picture.
