Re: vertical line running through video channels 1-4

Interchange the video channels 1-4 and 5-7. Now check white vertical line in video port 5-7. Suppose you get problem remove cable television cable from tv during another two port running. These type problem occurs only when RF disturbance from cable television or video ochannel ports cable wire ground problem. I found there is no problem in tv. External source only the problem. I hope above details give you the better solution.

My tv sony kv-xa21m61 display too bright and many horizontal lines. no picture

Vertical retrace lines is the problem. Thin white lines runs across the entire screen, at about an inch apart to each other. Check its video output supply voltage. Reduce the screen voltage to a little bit down and check. If you still wish to know more about this fault, check this site. Pull up older posts there.

I have a trutech tv model number plv1615 t I cannot find the manual I want to use it with my video player. Can you help

I'm assuming you have hooked up the video player and tried, and haven't got it to work? If so, Run the video cords to the correct places, i.e. yellow (video) to yellow port (front/back); white and red are sound, insert each to their corresponding places as well. Next, turn the tv on, as well as the video player, (dvd/vhs/etc) - next, if you have a remote use it to access the menu - then scroll through the list (usually with the volume up/down button, channel up/down buttons, or there will be arrow keys to use). Find in the menu the selection to choose which video port to use i.e., video 1, video 2, or AV, which is more commonly used - AV is usually the ports on the front side for tv's like this. If you do not have a remote, to access the menu (if not "menu" button is available on the front of tv) try using the channel up/down buttons on the tv, by pressing them both at the same time - also, using the channel up/down, or volume up/down buttons to scroll through the menu - to select, there will either be a "select" or "enter" button, or as one set of up/down buttons are used for scrolling, the other two up/down are used for selecting. Once you have determined the uses, find the channel selection, and try AV first. You may be able to find it easier first by simply flipping through the channels on the tv until it appears on the screen usually in the upper right hand corner in big letters -- AV. This will be the channel to use for video - if not, there is one other way to make this work - if the tv and video player have a co-axle port (cable cord connection) then use a co-axle cable. Plug it in to the back of the video player, and then the back of the tv. Select Channel three/four ( some video players have a switch on the back, so make sure they are both on the same channel). Most commonly used is channel 3.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

White lines on top of screen?

1.Check first if the problem occurs in all channels on your tv, if not the problem is on your tv receiver or tuner to IF section to video section. But if the problem occurs on all channel the problem is in vertical section.
note : In this case its better not to operate the unit inorder to avoid the damage of vertical IC which presently struggling because of loss contact.
1.The problem is loss contact on vertical section of your tv. Usually loss contact on vertical IC, resoldering it well and right can remedy the problem. Try also find a bulging capacitor and replace it.

You tv needs to have av plugs. Yellow for video in Red and White for Audio in. These need to be in the "in" ports. then you can turn to the right av channed it should be before channel 2 so just keep going down. If your tv has more than one set of av in ports there will be more than one av channel below channel two.

DVD input with signal access

IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in

IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.

THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!

White lines & inverted picture at top of CRT TV image

This problem is normally the Vertical filter capacitors. You need to have them changed before it burns out the Vertical Chip.

Connecting PS2 to an old TV

Plug the Red, Yellow, and White cords into their respective "IN" ports on the VCR. Run a coax line from the "out" port of the VCR to the coax port on TV. Some VCRs require you to tune to channel 3 or "LINE" which is typically the channel before 2 for this to work. To make things easier, you may want to purchase a modulator. This would allow you more easily set this up. The Mini-modulators aren't very expensive and can be purchased at virtually any electonics store.
