Question about Philips 32PT6441/37 32" TV

1 Answer

Picture is too large for the screen, horizontally.

When you turn on the power picture comes right on. But, if there are words spread across the screen the ends of them will be missing on both sides. It looks as if the picture is too large for the screen. Even the faces appear to be wider. Aside from that the picture, the sound, etc. seems to be working fine. We tried to go through the remote functions to determine if something may have been out of adjustment. As far as we can tell everything is fine. We think that it has something to do with the horizontal. Is there a way to manually adjust this on this particular model?

Re: picture is too large for the screen, horizontally.

No my friend, there is a problem with the width circuit, and this would be in the pincussion correction circuit of the TV set. There is alot of high voltage in this circuit, and if you have no TV repair experience, play it safe and call in a tech to service this for you. there is not any adjust ment that will fix this. Good Luck

I have sound but have a black screen with a horizontal line across it

your picture tube may be malfunctioning -- all of the information for the screen is being squished into that horizontal line. If this is the case, you can buy a new picture tube and install it, but that would be the only fix. the only other thing I can think of that might cause this issue would be if you have a large speaker next to your TX. The magnet from a large speaker can distort the television, but it usually gives you a funny green distortion near the magnet without killing your whole screen so it seems unlikely that this is your problem.

RCA 27F520 Shutdown after a few seconds

you have lost the vertical ic and maybe resistor or capacitor.
but you also maybe loosing the horizontal ic
you will also have to check the voltages on the flyback transformer that go to those circuit's to see if they drop or are correct

Picture on RCA TV shrinks to a horizontal line

Sounds to me you have a cold solder joint ( loose solder connection ) on the printer circuit board around or on the vertical chip or on one of the vertical capacitors. You may also have a bad vertical chip or a bad vertical capacitor, but I doubt it since it did come and go. I'de get a soldering iron and some solder and touch up the connections. I will remind you that you need to always excersise saftey by making sure, before removing the back, unplug the TV from the wall, and use care not to come in contact with the large red wire going to the back of the picture tube as the picture tube can be turned off and still store lots of voltage ( up to 35,000 volts). Always stay safe and when soldering, use care not to run solder across places that will make a short.
Good Luck and I hope this helps

Toshiba 32A43 Horizontal Bars, pop, no picture.

First of all, there is no such thing as a "high power flyback converter". There is a flyback transformer, but if it was bad you would have absolutely no picture at all. The fact that you dont even know what the basic components are suggests that you should not be "diving in" to someone else's TV. Do everyone a favor and allow an experienced tech to service the set.

Green screen with almost horizontal zigzag lines

Is good that you hit it and it reacts,very likely you have loose conections in different places but for the distorted picture you need to check the horizontal driver transformer and flyback after that is corrected you need to check the complete chassis for loose conections.Take your time.Good luck.
