Question about Televison & Video

2 inches of transluscent white lines appear at top of TV screen.

The TV is just 2 years old. Several transluscent white lines are appearing at top of TV screen. I can compress the screen to 4.3 and they go away. But not all channels look good compressed. What is causing this? Thank you for your help.

Your TV has lost adjustment .
Most likely the controls are inside the TV and that a trained person needs to do the adjustment.

If your model is very old .

Then there will be an adjustment screw for controlling on the back of tv .
It would let you correct this problem with just a screw driver .

Thanks for using Fixya .

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, would suspect vertical capacitor. The lives would be slight slanted with the left slightly higher than the right and the right fading a bit. Should this be the case, then as earlier proposed, capacitor.

Might you pls post back the brand and model.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    For some reason, your posted brand/model "Magnavox 27MT60050" does not show in the database. In any case a probable comparable model, the capacitor is a 100 uF/ 35V or in some others a little lower values. Cost estimate is less than a dollar for the parts and should be readily available from most electronics parts stores. Repair should be less than 30 minutes barring any unforeseen faults. Service fee would depend on the going rate in your area.

    Cheers.

White line across screen


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.

Take it to a repair shop.

Lines down screen


We have a Samsung LE32A457, whilst we were watching T.V tonight the top halve of the screen suddenly appeared with green lines halfway down the screen and that half of the picture was unwatchable, T.V is 2 years old. We have removed all scart leads but this did not help and the problem still exists, when shutting down a white horizontal line across the centre of the screen appears from this line upwards the picture is faulty. Any help or advice would be grateful.

Horizontal white lines 27A43.


You have some bad capacitors. They are located very near and next to your vertical IC. I would guess you would have to replace maybe four of these! Thanks for asking!

Visual transparent lines at top of picture


You have a vertical output circuit problem. This was common for Philips' sets. Have a repair shop check it out. Should not be too expensive to repair.
