Wrap around/folding picture

I have a Magnavox 25tsc6 0101 and the picture is ''folded'' on the top and bottom making it hard to watch. Is there anything I can check or repair to fix this at a reasonable cost?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your described problem indicates a problem in the vertical section. The folding normally is caused by a faulty boost capacitor. Faulty capacitors are easily identified by bulging top (normally flat), blistered/split casing, brownish paper within the immediate surrounding, rubber bottom partially out and/or powdery residue on one of the pins. This is relatively an easy/quick repair and would normally be inexpensive. There are however instances where the vertical IC is at fault or some other minor components. What would be more challenging would be identifying which to replace and/or getting access to the solder points.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Vertical scan output section circuit fault. Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

A black line (about 2 inches wide) appears at the top of the screen with this amount of the picture looking like it is folded down translucently over the remaining picture. What's up?


Hello
Your TV has vertical fold problem. Just check all the electrolytic capacitors. On checking, most of them may look good. But on circuit, when energised, will show problems. So it is best to replace all of them once and check. Please check the electrolytic capacitor connected to the vertical power supply [usually comes from the secondary supply section of the Line Output Transformer], first, and replce it. It may be a 1500Mfd or 2200mfd. Check it first by replacing a new one. In most foldover cases, this service will solve the problem. gopakumarg43@ymail.com
