Question about Zenith Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

No picture, only a horizontal line across the screen

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.

Kv-35xbr48 turns on fine nice picture then horizontal lines form distorting picture like interference also is the back hard to take off and put on needs a good vacum thanks for any suggestion


At first the picture is ok, and then distorted with horizontal lines i thinks. If the horzontal lines are parellel acros the screen, with an inch apart across the whole screen, your tv needs screen adjustments. Screen voltage may be high. look into the crt base also. Change it first. These also not resolve the problem, LOT may be faulty, with respect to screen focus pack. May need replacement. Try first setting screen voltage to a lower settings and observe.

The picture is smashed down to a narrow horizontal line


Check solder on the vertical output or change it. Dont know # but look for IC screew on heat sink with about 7 to 14 pins.

it could be an electrolytic capacitor or the vertical output I.C. in the vertical circuitry,if you remove the rear cover tap on the board in different places and see if the picture fills out or atleast jitters like it might fill out,then it could be just a cold solder joint,then remove the main board and resolder all joints and this should repair the condition you have

TV: bright line across black screen for several hours.


vertical output ic needs to be resoldered. careful leaving that bright line displayed on the screen as this will cause a permanent phosphor burn into the tube. this can not be corrected once burned unless you replace the tube. mch

Horizontal 'pinstripe' lines on all channels


sound like the screen control on the flyback is set just a little too high. the flyback has the red wire attached to the tube. the flyback has 2 small adjustable controls. if you look close enough 1 is marked focus & on is screen. turn the screen slightly to the left & look at your picture. the screen is like a master brightness & if it's up too high you will see what is called retrace lines. good luck.
