Question about Philips 32PT5441/37 32" TV

1 Answer

Horizontal lines slowly moving down

Model: Philips 32PT5441/37 In the past few weeks horizontal lines from the top of the picture are moving down mixing with the existing picture. Over time more and more lines from above are moving down, much like if you were slowly peeling down wallpaper from the top. It's about 2 years old, but it has been used a lot. I have tried different video inputs and they're all the same. I haven't changed anything in the physical setup recently. I'm very much expecting to have to buy a new TV, but wanted to see if perhaps there was a simple solution somehow or if it's worth it getting it repaired. Thank you for your time!

Re: Horizontal lines slowly moving down

Sounds like you have a power supply filtering problem. Perhaps a filter capacitor is going bad. If your set has a switching power supply oscillations from it are getting into the video. You need to have a tech to check it out for you. You should get an estimate first before having it repaired. Stargazer

We have a 27" MTS Stereo color TV. There are white horizontal lines at the top of the screen. We do have a DVR with Direct TV. How do we fix?

U can't.Only horizontal lines on the top parts of the tv screen or the lower parts of the picture screen.Or very light horizontal lines mix in with the tv screen pictures.The "CRT" the picture tube is slowly dying of old age.Quicker than they supose to.The late 90" these problems case show up alot more in standard tvs using CRT tube.Because the CRT and analog design about to be faze out of the market place.The glass molding and those radiation matrials,they used to make those "CRT" picture tube materials,not as good as before.

White horzontal lines on the top of screen

Typical symptom of a faulty screen voltage capacitor. You'd need a schematic to locate the cap and then change it out.

Picture is now a thin horizontal line

now only visible in a thin horizontal line. first of all you reduce brightness to monimum. it just to protect your tv from crt demage. your problem is in horizontal output section as you have mentioned that week or so ago the right and left bottom edges of the picture began to move in like a sideways triangle filled with black so this sympton is due to hor. section problem. your flyback transformer or horizontal output might be defective. but remember check for power supply is ok from surge protector hope this will help.

You likely have an elevtrlytic capacitor bad on the B+ line to the vertical ouput ic. If you continue to use the set like this it is likely the vertical ouput ic will fail.
