Re: green vertical lines on the screen

Sounds like you may have some bad filter capacitors in the convergence board. Better take a close look at them before they damage the chips. Good Luck

We have a vertical green bar on the left side of the screen. Can this be fixed or is the TV toast?

If the TV is older than 10 years, the cost of repairs against how long it will play in the future might be a reason to get a flat screen

Most but not all of these sets have a reset---with set off and Sony remote hit display, 5, volume up, and POWER.

Set should come on in the tech menu---hit 8 on the remote and you should see the word RESET IN RED, then hit enter to complete the reset.

If the green band was there before it may be a optical light engine bad, these sets are well known for this.

No picture

Sound like you lost Vertical Deflection.  Youshould not have a line across the screen because this could destroy the threeCRT Red, Green, and Blue (Picture tubes) if left on to long. There is a protection circuit built in to protect your CRT’s.    Check on the PCB-SIGNALboard (Tuner located on this board) transistors Q-206 Collector should be around 1 Volt Base and Emitter 0V. If the voltage atthis point is greater then 5 Volts the Vertical output IC-401 (Mounted on heat sink 7 pin inline IC) is bad, Part # LA7845.  Pin Voltages should be PIN 1= 0V, 2= 34V, 3= 32V, 4= 3V, 5= 3V, 6= 33v, 7= -6V.  Data sheet located at
