Question about Emerson EWC1303 13 in. TV/VCR Combo

Vertical foldover The TV picture has a foldover at the top. The raster is full height, but the top two inches of the picture is folded upside down onto the rest of the picture. This has been going on about a month, and has gradually gotten worse. I can't find a service manual for this TV,

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, on most TVs, your described issue indicates that the Pump Up capacitor has slowly leaked and/or nearing end of life (dried up). This capacitor would be located very very near the Vertical Deflection IC and would be the biggest of the bunch of capacitor within that immediate area.

Rather an inexpensive component, should not take a couple of minutes to replace. What would be more challenging is identifying/locating it and getting access to the solder joints underneath the PCB (printed circuit board). Should look like image below (not necessarily same value/specs).

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

This is a problem in the certical circuit. A capacitor has become defective. It will likely be a 100ufd cap in the 35V range. Look for the vertical IC which is a small flat IC attached to a heatsink that will be marked LA7837 or something similar. Note the designation on the board for that IC (eg. IC301). The cap in question will be marked C3xx indicating that it is in the same circuit and should be close to the IC. I'll try to locate the schematic on this to get you the specific number.

Keep us posted.

Yes, this is rare but I have seen it before--not fixable if it is what I think it is----It is what is called a Dome effect---the shadow mask in the picture tube is actually contracting and or expanding depending on temperature---

Directly behind the phosphor coating (the stripes that you see on the screen) is a metal screen--the holes or perforations in it line up with the stripes on the phosphor screen.

Some masks either have a material or a defect causing the dome effect----Not likely to be anything else---a Pin amp problem will not usually act the way you describe but a shadow mask inside the picture tube will act exactly that way.

I have 32 inch toshiba analog tv with builtin dvd and vhs, the top of the screen is like rollong over , like when words scroll across they are upside down at top of screen? or the top of someones head...


The Vertical circuit is going out. A leaky capacitor is causing timeing problems with the vertical height and retrace. Adjustments may seem to help, but they will noot last as the part is failing and will get worse and worse until it goes out all together.

It will need to be repaired by a qualified Tech.

hi! he might have adjusted the vertical hold and height including the linearity. normally on the board you would see a trimmer resistor with a label v-hold this is to stop the rolling, v- height for the size of the picture. and linearity for the evenness of the picture from top to bottom.

I have a 32A14 Toshiba TV. At full screen, the


you have to take in affect on how old is the tv if you have had it a few years then the screen is going out and will only be a matter of time before it goes all the way out and you will be buying a new one if it not old and its one of the newer flat panels then its the signal that the tv is receiving if its hooked to a digital antena then you only get max of 720 from it on certain channels no matter if the channel or channels are showing hd with out a hd source your tv will not show better then that i have a 42 inch hd flat panel and use a antena and the best i get from my hd broadcast channels certain times will i get true hd like when the news is showing or when one of the series that was filmed in hd is on other then that i only get a 720 picture instead of a 1080 most commercals are not film in 1080 but in 720 max and i dont know why makes no since

White lines accross top of screen on our 27 inch Toshiba,


lcd or plasma.
are the lines solid or blurred. do they have sharp edges.
You may have a memory problem with the display which can only be repaired by factory trained technicians, or a brave soul willing to find parts on ebay.
