Question about Samsung TXF2899 28" TV

1 Answer

Beautifull picture except for a jiggling black line in pricure

TV was working well then suddenly a horizontal black line about 1/2" wide appeared near the center of the tube with diagonal white lines below it. all lines jiggle. After a while the white lines converge on the black line the black line driftes up and down. Otherwise the picture is very clear. Tapping the case or any of the circuit boards has no effect. Removing and reinserting the various connectors on the circuit board or picture tube has no effect.

My tv made a little noise and then the picture disappeared. The screen is black with a vertical line of picture approx 1/4 inch wide going up the middle of the screen. Is it fixable?

Generally this is not good news. Even in the event this TV is repaired, it will work very long. This TV has a horizontal problem. This is the most stressed area of any conventional TV. The Horizontal Output Transistor will need replace, the flyback transformer is bad, you have bad power supply with horizontal capacitors that are bad, and last, is a possible bad picture tube. This TV is not worth the effort or money to repair. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Horizontal Line through middle of TV screen

This is usually a bad elect capasitor or a bad solder connection on the vertical IC, The capasitors will be close to the vert chip..Sometimes you can clear problem with a light tap on the TV, if so then suspect bad solder.

JVC TV 27" Black line on top of screen

This is for the original problem.. Not the second post.

It's a problem in the horizontal deflection circuit. The parts will be available, but you will be in for some daignostic repairs also to find out why it failing or if it has failed on it's own.
There should be a few caps near the IC (an LA7840) that could also be causing the problem. Click the link, it will make it easier to locate the part inside.

This is the kind of repair best left to a TV tech, but get it done now and it won't cost anywhere near as much as it will later.

Check for leaky capacitors in the vertical section of the TV or cold solder joints.
I would also check in the power supply.
Good Luck.
