Question about Panasonic CT25G7 25" TV

1 Answer

No vertical deflection, only a thin horizontal line.

I would appreciate any help I can get for the following problem:
My television set is a Panasonic CTN 2766S and chassis APEDP204.

Problem: The top of the picture was a couple of inches short when the tv was first turned on. After five minutes or so, the picture filled out to normal and stayed that way.

It did this for about a year and then when the set was turned on, it only had a horizontal line in about the middle of the screen. It did not fill out no matter how long it was on.

I replaced the IC 451(LA7836-TV) “VERT OUT” and, also, replaced C553, 22UF/250V with a 32UF/250V capacitor because a service bulletin said the capacitor was drying out. That caused an increase in beam current resulting in a broken CRT neck. 

When the tv was turned on. The raster filled out except for the top couple of inches. Adjusting the vertical size pot did not have any effect. IC 451 was getting hot in a short time. After 30 minutes the raster did not fill out, like it had done previously. I heard a sound like something was shorting out and the raster disappeared leaving only a horizontal line on the screen.

I made a check of IC 451 and found it was shorted.

Again, I would appreciate any help with this problem.

    Hi Benimur,



    I also want to thank you for your help, I appreciate it very much!



    I am assuming you have read my response to Shuttle as to why it took me so long to respond.



    I like the very helpful information you sent and I will certainly follow your advice when time permits me to do so.



    You are correct, for the most part, in the wiring of the componets !



    I had mentioned in my reply to Shuttle, I had been told I should have installed a LA 7836 kit. That it not only had the IC but also the resistors, capacitors and othe associated parts. Would you please the me what those parts are and values ?



    Again, I thank you very much for your help!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A few ideas you may want to consider/explore;

  • While it is true that capacitors do dry out, the values that you posted (22uF & 32uF) are relatively low for the pump/boost capacitor which is responsible for the "top of the picture was a couple of inches short". Normally this should be around 100uF connected between pin8 & pin 12 of LA7836;
  • agree that the Vertical IC LA7836 is busted hence the single line;
  • in most vertical designs, there would be a diode from pin7 that goes to pin12 that needs looking into for a leak;
  • pin7 is the Vert B+ ~ 24VDC while pin1 is secondary B+ 9 ~ 12 VDC. In some designs to accomplish this, there is a dropping resistor from pin 7 to pin 1 and sometimes a zener diode from pin1 to GND parallel with a filter capacitor;
  • pin11 is the vertical output that goes to the yoke. From the yoke some design uses another capacitor (about 1000uF) before going to the ground through a low resistor (~ 1 ohm);
  • above mentioned parts need to be checked out of ciruit preferable and special attention to possible leaks of the diode when testing in reverse bias mode.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Hello dede27,

I suspect you have some background in electronics so I'll ask you some questions.

First, I know that you changed the output ic and a capacitor, the capacitor caused excessive beam current, that's bad, remember that beam current is dangerous because it can produce X-Rays. Remember to use the exact value of parts for X-Ray generating areas of the TV. So replace the C555 with the rated value by the manufacture.

As far as the vertical deflection problem it sounds like you may have a shorted vertical deflection coil (part of the yoke transformer). I would suggest testing the coil to see if it is shorted (A ring test will determine this). The Sencore LC102 has a ring test feature or you can lookup how to build a simple ring tester. In any event replace the IC and test the yoke transformer for shorts on the vertical winding.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

I have a thin line in my tv and i dont know what ic no.to replace?


The fault is a failure of the deflection circuit and since you have not specified whether it is a vertical or an horizontal line the section failed will be related to the position of the line.
If horzontal the vertical IC or the section related is faulty and if Vertical the horizontal section., Now this can be the deflection IC, teh deflection coils or even discrete components like capacitors or resisitors in this section which will require a signal trace with a voltage test before the absence of the sync pulses are confirmed and the section identified.
I request not to change the IC unless it is proved but you can solder the vertical IC or the section concerned -- if there is dry soldering.

There is a horizontal line in the mid


Hello

The vertical scan of your TV has failed. All picture tube type TVs have both horizontal and vertical scan sections to scan the picture on the secreen. When horizontal scan fails, you will see a vertical line at the middle of the screen, and if vertical scan fails, there will be a horizontal line through the middle of the screen. In your TV, the second stated has happened.
This may be due to an IC trouble or a voltage loss inside the printed circuit board of your TV. To rectify this fault you have to open your TV, and locate the vertical output section inside it. It is very easy to locate that section. There will be four wires goes from the deflection yoke; the coil fitted at the neck of the picture tube; out ot which, two will be thick and the other two will be thin. The thick wires are usually colour coded as red and blue. Colour coding may differ from set to set. Anyway you have to follow the tow thin wires, as they are carrying vertical scan signal to the yoke.
Following it, you will reach to a plug in point on the printed circuit board. Upside down the printed circuit board, and follow the track through which that wire connection goes, and finally you will reach to the vertical output section.
There may be transistors or IC used on that section. First check the voltage at the vertical output section. Voltage lose also may occur in this section. If it uses IC, check for any loose or bad solderings at the terminals of the IC. I advice you to resoder the suspected points by applying a little more solder, without shorting the terminals. In most cases this will solve the problem. If there is voltage, and there is no loose solderings and still the fault perists, replace the IC or transistors, whatever it may be, with same type and number.
If you want anymore asistance, fee free to contact me through Fixya. OK.

When I power on my Mitsubishi CS-35313 tv, I only get a thin horizontal line across the center of the picture tube. What could be the problem?


There is a failure in the vertical deflection circuit. Typically there is a vertical output i.c. that provides the deflection vertically. The i.c. itself is a fairly common component to fail. There are some lower power circuits that feed this output device that also could be the problem. When the electron beam in the tube is not deflected vertically it "writes" only horizontally across the center of the screen thus resulting in a single trace. Be careful not to leave this at high brightness for any extended time as it can "burn in" that area of the screen. Unless you are a "techi" this is a job for a qualified technician. Troubleshooting would be in the vertical deflection section of the set. Most of the parts are not expensive in themselves, except for the deflection yoke which sits around the neck of the tube. The cost to repair would typically be the shop labor.

My television has no picture just one thin line in the center. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what is wrong?


You have a problem in vertical deviation in your television.It's need to be repaired by specialist.

I think you are describing 'no vertical deflection.' If all you have on the screen is a single horizontal line, the vertical deflection circuit (or IC) has died. Unless you have service documentation on hand, I can't give a part number to replace but this is typically not an expensive failure and if the set was OK before, it is worth having repaired.

Toshiba 32A14 horizontal line


This symptom is characterized by a thin horizontal line in the middle of the screen. This symptom is caused by the absence of the deflection sawtooth current in the horizontal deflection coil.
The trouble is easily isolated by a continuity test and by checking the most likely defective components such as A)open vertical linearity compensation transformer, B) open capacitor and C) open horizontal deflection coil.
Be sure to decrease the brightness first before trouble-shooting if the line is very bright,as it burn the phosphor screen..

Hope this may help;

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!

If you indeed have a line down the center of the screen that means the horizontal output transistor is working as it produces high voltage as well. The rectifiers are working otherwise you would have no power or sound. What you need to look at is either the horizontal windings of the deflection yoke are open or you have a open return from the yoke to the horitontal output stage.
