Question about Philips 32PT6441/37 32" TV

1 Answer

Horizontal lines across the top 3 inches of picture

My television, purchased about two years ago has recently developed white lines (sometimes colored) that run along the top three inches of the picture. They can distort words that appear at the top of the screen, but usually don't interfere with picture. What is causing this? Is it repairable?

    There are a series of small lines that started with one going directly across the top of the screen. Additional lines have since appeared.

    Along with the white lines on the top part of my TV screen, I am also facing audio & video disruption problems. Are these two problems connected? My TV model no. is Philips 27PT6441/27 27"

Horizontal white lines across top problems of my television.


This is probably bad/leaky capacitors in the vertical circuit, around the vertical IC, or the power supply that feeds the vertical. Sometimes you can see domed/ bulged caps or what looks like liquid on the circuit board around the leaky ones. The legs on some caps can even corrode to the point the leg is missing. Care must be taken when replacing them because the acid from the caps can eat away foil traces on the circuit board. All acid must be cleaned off board to prevent further corrosion of parts

Hi I had the same problem. Broken white lines across the top of the screen. This is called overscan. You need to go into the Setup menu, other settings. 16:9 overscan needs to be on. Hope this helps.It solved our problem.

White horizontal lines at top of picture


Yes, definitely worth fixing. The problem lies in the vertical deflection voltage-doubler circuit. The usual fault is a single capacitor of 100uF/35V that has failed. It is normally connected to a rectifier diode right at the vertical IC. Replacing the capacitor (no more than USD4.00 in price) usually gets it working perfectly again. If you are finicky around technical work, then a reputable local repair shop in your locality should do it quickly for you and charge only labour.

Your whole problem my freind is dryed up capacitors. You should go, if you have the technical ability to replace these capacitors, to http://servicemanuals.net, download the schematic diagram, and start replacing the waveshaper capacitors in the vertical drive circuit.
