No not fatal, but sick. this problem you are having sounds like you have a vertical sweep problem.. It could be the vertical output IC, the sweep power supply or a capacitor or two is bad. If you have printed circuit board soldering experience, you can try and fix this yourself, but if you do not, play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair as it should not cost more then 100 bucks to repair. Good Luck

I turned my television on then it made the tv frame made a noise!and now the screen is black except for this thin line across the middle of the screen which is display the picture

Most likely the vertical oscillator circuit has failed. As CRT televisions have gone the way of the dinosaur, my advice to you is to give a fond adieu and invest in a new TV.

TV screen has a thin horizontal line in center

this will only help until the next time it is out of alignment but if you slap the side of your tv about where the line is it should straighten out but there is no telling how long it will stay straight......My sons tv was doing that and i had a tv when i was young that did it that is what my mom told me to do and what i told my son to do and it works.... the problem is an alignment or conection problem from dust most likely.

Thin bar in the middle of the screen showing the picture

You should get the vertical IC checked starting with checking the supply voltage on it. This is a small flat IC attached to a heat sink with about 9-11 pins. This tv model should carry an LA7837 or an equivalent IC. If supply is present, check with means of a magnifying glass for dry solder joints on it. Resolder the pins on this IC if necessary and should work out fine. Model tends to suffer from this problem.

Screen is black except for thin line in middle of screen

The problem is in the vertical section of the main board. Bad capacitors and maybe the vertical IC. If you are not inclined to be a tech you will have to take it to a shop.. I don't know what they may charge but I normally get $69- $89

The problem you are having is a vertical deflection problem. The screen is being compressed to a thin white line. It's probably a defective vertical output module or transistor. This part is not too expensive. Less likely would be a vertical deflection coil, which would be more expensive because its usually glued to the picture tube and harder to replace. You'll need to take your set to service center to have it serviced.

Good Luck!
