Most likely this is a case of bad solder connections to the TV's vertical output integrated circuit (IC). This part gets pretty hot while operating, and it's very common for the connections on the circuit board to get flaky from the heating and cooling cycles. A few minutes with a soldering iron by someone who's done electronic soldering is usually all it takes.

It's also possible the output IC has failed, but the bad connections are far more common. I have no idea what a service shop in your area would charge to make the repair if you don't feel you can handle it, but it would certainly be less than the cost of a replacement TV.

Don't continue using the set with this loss of vertical output. The picture tube phosphor surface can be burned by the narrow bright line, and leave a dark line in the picture after the set is repaired. There is no way to repair that other than replacing the tube, and that WOULD be more expensive than a new TV.

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.

Faint horizontal lines in picture


This is usually caused by a problem in the Horizontal Output section, around the Horizontal Output transformer usually a capacitor or diode going or gone faulty... the line you see are the Horizontal "Retrace" lines that are useually "Hidden" when the circuit is OK..
