My 32inch tv turns on but the picture is wired.

On a 32 inch it may not be worth fixing--not going to be a reset etc--base decision on fact that possible repair should not exceed used value of set--which in my view it likely will.

My television was dropped. The power comes on, but the screen remains black with a white line appearing across the center of the screen.


how many years, your tv is working .

if over 10-15 years you must try to replace with new one.

if not :

the gun of screen lamp may be damaged or one of diod is damaged or one of the larg capacitor

is leeked .

anyway for solving the matter a technecian must visit your tv.

good luck

My television has no picture or sound it just has black background with a white horizontal line in the middle

If it's old, it's most likely reached the end of it's working life. Some older sets had a 'service' switch for repairmen, when the switch was thrown it would produce the same effect as you describe.I wouldn't really call this a solution, but get a new one.

Sound works fine - there is no picture...

Your remote control has a button on it marked "TFT" (which is your LCD display). Power on your unit and hit this button on your remote - it turns power to the screen on or off. If your screen is just gray, as if it has power but not image (not black as in "dead") then you might be in the category of a different post of mine on this machine.

32 Toshiba TV no picture / bad pciture

Hello Suzid, It looks to me like you have a possible power supply issue (poor brightness on screen, shrinking of the picture, and initially no picture) This problem may put you in danger of electrical shock, so I would suggest that you not try to repair this set yourself. I would suggest that you take the television to a television repair shop.The power supply issue could be a low power or a high power supply problem.

POP and noothiing

yes it can still be fixed! the pop sound you've heard maybe came from a blown capacitor in the vertical deflection circuits. 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!
