Color line across the center of a black screen

My Panasonic T.V. started yesterday with a 2 inch line across the screen where I could see colors and the rest of the screen was black. A few minutes later it changed to a wobbly picture with a lot of wavy lines across the entire picture. It may work fine after that or go back to the 2 inch line across the screen. What is the problem?

Re: Color line across the center of a black screen

I had the same problem. My TV has 2 to 3 color lines jumping up and down. But as soon as I strike on the body, the picture resume again. I take an electronic technician and soldered all joints with soldering gun, now it is OK. So the problem is the breakage of lead joints and you can confirm by striking the body with hand to change the color lines to picture.

Re: Color line across the center of a black screen

Hi. this is caused by dry solder joints on the frame o/p IC. Resolder all legs of frame chip. Should sort that out.

Tv screen is black except for 1 horizontal line of color

The line is there because the vertical deflection unit - the one that spreads that line across the entire screen to form the image - has failed. Replacing it is a job for a professional, or at least an experienced amateur, and the parts will be quite difficult to find for such an old tv .

Line across middle of screen.

The line of color is due to a failure in the vertical circuit. The main suspects are the vertical Ic AN15525A and/or capacitor c308 220uf@35volts
If you have the capacity to do so, you should check the other electrolytic capacitors in the vertical circuit which are USUALLY located near the vertical IC in most cases
you can purchase the part at
or mcm electronics

Black screen, high pitched squeal

A set that has only a 1/2 inch bright line through the middle of the picture, from left to right, has a vertical output IC that is not working correctly. If the 1/2 inch line is in the middle but going up and down, then the horizontal yoke circuit has stopped working. These are problems which should be looked at by a qualified tech, but if the set was purchased 6 months ago then it should still be under the manufacturer's warranty.

Green horizontal lines across screen

try adjusting the green screen control. remove the front bottom panel of the tv by removing any screws holding it in place. gently pull of the front panel, there are gromets holding it in place, you will be able to gently remove the front, just make sure you get all those screws. now reove the small wodden or plastioc panel. now you will see the screen/focus assy. check to see of the screen controls are the top 3 or bottom 3. adjusted the center screen it's the green one, the other 2 are the red & blue. it is best to adjust in a dark room where the lines will show up easier. good luck
