Horizontal 'pinstripe' lines on all channels

My Daewoo tv has started to develop very thin horizontal lines across the screen on all channels (including av). They resemble pinstripes and are sometimes horizontal, sometimes with a slight angle (maybe 10' from horizontal). Can it be fixed?

Re: Horizontal 'pinstripe' lines on all channels

Sound like the screen control on the flyback is set just a little too high. the flyback has the red wire attached to the tube. the flyback has 2 small adjustable controls. if you look close enough 1 is marked focus & on is screen. turn the screen slightly to the left & look at your picture. the screen is like a master brightness & if it's up too high you will see what is called retrace lines. good luck.

I have horizontal lines over the whole tv,but the tv play you can see them good on some channels.Wat could be the problem?

There is mainly two reasons for this fault. The smoothing capacitor to video output supply voltage be bad, or the screen voltage to CRT is more than normal. These lines [thin horizontal lines runs across the screen; an inch apart or so to entire screen] is technically called 'vertical retrace lines' If you wish to get more details about this fault, check this site. It has details about it. Pull up older posts there.

The TV has a thin horizontal line across the screen. Sometimes the line has color and sometimes the line is white. Everything else seems to be working (i.e. sound, channel changing, game hookups)....

you have a vertical output problem,take something insulated and prod around board and see if pix starts to flutter,then you could have a "cold-solder" joint,otherwise its more than likely a capacitor between the vert driver circuit and the vert output circuitry,

Black line running horizontally across TV screen

A line on an LCD, either horizontal or vertical usually means the video driver board is defective or the screen is defective, does it show up as black even on a dark screen? That means a line of LCD "shutter"s is not working and there is a problem that cant be fixed by a reboot or channel change. Bummer.
