Question about Zenith Televison & Video
When I turned on the set, the only picture I got was a very narrow horizontal line running across the screen. I did get sound. There was also an electrical odor.
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Your described problem indicates failure at the vertical deflection circuitry. Almost always, this would be a defective vertical IC. In some instances, this could also be caused by the absence of Vcc (supply voltage) to the said IC. This is a relatively easy/quick repair. What would be more challenging is identifying the IC, removing it, and replacing. Replacement would be readily available from most electronics part stores including Radio Shack.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
