White line runs from bottom of screen to top

A 2 to 3 inch soft white line(almost looks like a ghost) runs continously from the bottom to the top of the screen, then repeats itself. Any ideas what the problem is?

    ^^^^^^What are you talking about? CRT? LOL! I posted a pic of the TV right next to my problem. So its the HT coil huh? Well I just replaced the composite cable that was connected to my DirecTv Box and that cleared the problem up. Pretty expensive huh?



    Thanks for your ingenious insight though! LOL!

This is the rastor that you are seeing - it may be possible to adjust the contrast and brightness to remedy however if you have not enough range in your adjustments and it results in being unable to see a usuable image then you more that likely have a problem with the HT coil which must be repaired/replaced at the shop. This is likely to be "fairly" expensive! I take it this is a CRT TV - if it is an LCD then it would be interesting if the sympton occurs at 740 and 1080.

Try the scan PCBs that run down the side and the connectors that hook them up to the rest of the system. That would be my first place to start.

Unfortunately I don't have service manuals for non-european models. What is the date of manufacture?
