This is a failure of the vertical circuit. Usually this is either poor connections at the vertical IC or a defective IC. If you can solder, try resoldering the pins of the IC. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the IC.

Keep me posted.

Where is tbe eject button

Did you look on the TV REMOTE carefully. Breathe deeply and see if following these directions helps you.

FIRST, go down past the "freeze" and "display" buttons that are located in the middle of the remote. Now, you will see a VOLUME and a CHANNEL button. Continue very slowly until you see a button labeled PICTURE then a button labeled SOUND.

NOW BE VERY CAREFUL or you can easily miss the button you are searching for. See if you now see 4 buttons across the middle of your remote. They will be labeled like this: SLEEP, ASPECT, CC, MTS. If you followed all of that you are now in the right place.

You will now see 4 buttons. The first one has a triangle with a line under it. Next one has a triangle pointing right. Next one has two lines that look like this: II. The last one has a solid square colored in.

BE PATIENT NOW. Go back to the VERY FIRST button that has a TRIANGLE with a line under it. If you have a magnifying glass, GET IT! If you are ready, look very carefully. Right UNDER the button which has the TRIANGLE with the line under it in almost invisible letters there is the word EJECT.

BY now you will wonder why on earth anyone would put the word EJECT in such a hidden place. Next to the word EJECT you will see the words PLAY, PAUSE, STOP. You are now wondering why you did not see it. You are not alone! We all felt that way. Even more disturbing is that unless you copy this down and TAPE it on your TV you will feel like you are in Twlight Zone as EACH time you get ready to use the EJECT you will "lose your mind again! I am speaking from repeated experiences!

All lol of that being said, if you find yourself lost and cannot find the button again, AFTER you print out these directions, I suggest that you get a bright colored marker and color code that button in RED. I say that because I assure you you WILL find yourself in this same situation again. You will be looking and you will be wondering how could that button have disappeared! I have spent long amounts of time just puzzled. WRITE THE DIRECTIONS DOWN??. Tape them ON YOUR TV.

If if you were unable to find the button after my instructions, GO TO YOUR TV. You will need your flashlight! Reach behind the UPPER RIGHT HAND side of the TV. Turn the TV towards you. You will see very hard to see buttons. There are buttons there. One is labeled EJECT. Push it.

Please write this all down and save yourself the agony and distress I had. I was amazed that after I had located that button that still could not easily go back to it.

Last suggestion: KEEP YOUR MANUAL taped on your TV. COLOR CODE that page which shows you where that EJECT button is on your remote. Don't trust your memory. Three years later - on this TV, I still am doing a hit and miss discovery session on my remote! Be patient. Go slowly.

My screen has one line going across the middle.

The problem is a vertical deflection issue, caused by bad connections on the vertical deflection ic, or needs to be replaced and one or two bad capacitors.

Single line across set(horizonal)

A single horizontal line on your CRT Television indicates that the Vertical Drive Transistor has failed. Not as large and easily accessible as the Horizontal Output Transistor, the VDT should be fairly easly to locate and replace.

Hi I have a problem my tv has a line across the middle of the screen from side to side can you help me with this problem?

If it is a bright line and there is nothing above or below the line, the TV has failed with a lack of vertical drive. This could be a transistor, a chip or the deflection coil. If the TV is more than a few years old, it will be cheaperr to replace it than to repair it.

I have thin white lines that run across the top of my picture. They are only visible when picture is full screen. The wide screen picture (with the black areas at the top and bottom) do not show this. The...

sounds like bad capacitor in vertical circuit. It's not a hard fix if you know where to look. Repair shop should not have hard time repairing it.

Green line in middle of tv when switched on

Is there a picture with the green line going through the centre. If it`s just a green line with no picture, it sounds like the Frame (Vertical scan) Output IC has failed and possibly the safety feed resistor near the LOPTX. The reason why it`s a green line is to protect the tube from phosphor damage. The older TV`s would produce a VERY bright white line across the screen which could burn the phosphors withing the tube if left turned on in that condition. It`s not an expensive repair, but is it worth it with the price of Modern TV`s nowadays. If there is a picture with a green line, it may be due to phosphor damage, in which case, it`s a new CRT (tube). Ian

At the top of Viewing screen

I would suspect that the vertical output transistor is getting ready to go.

When turned on only gets a straight line of color in middle of screen

You lost your vertical sweep. most likely the vertical output IC or a power supply source is the problem.
