Re: horizonal problem

Practice visual acuity technique! Examine chassis,solder any/all bad connects,re-assemble,try again.If that does not do it,you might have a small break in pcb==gently flex board,try to isolate area.Above all else,do no harm!!

When i turned the tv on, i heard like a "click" noise, and the, there was no picture, only a horizontal light line

Sounds like one of the components and/or screen is going or gone,. the "event horizon" of screen deaths, not good. sounds like this one may need to go into the repair shop,....may only be a small component and not whole screen. best to get estimate and call repair shop with issue first...

Intense white & coloured horizontal line on black background on startup

I wouldn't attempt as the capacitors on a tv store around 25000 volts this is more than enough to kill you and they keep there charge even when the tv is off. Either take it to a repair shop or put that money towards buying a new tv - Do not even attempt to open the tv. (It sounds like maybe a tube has gone or the electromagnet that makes the beam move vertically is gone.

The vertical circuit is not pulling the top of the picture to the top of the screen (CRT) correctly. Its possible you have a loose wire or device ( after moving ) . If you have vertical agustments on the back , you may be able to adjust the picture taller; if the picture becomes stretched ( non - linear ) then you definately have tv tech only problems. At that point I'd really think twice about a repair and consider a new DTV or HDTV set. If the unit was damaged by a mover , then you may have a claim against them .

Red power light comes on and no picture

Sometimes after a move,a bad solder connection causes a
part failure,maybe just a fuse device....have it checked by a
qualified technician.............T.

Thin horizonal line in middle on dark screen

The several thin white lines at the top of the screen is the warning that the vertical output IC is not getting the boost voltage it needs to run correctly. The IC cannot operate for long like that and shorts out inside, which is when the vertical collapses altogether and you get the thin white line through the center of the screen. The good news for your son is that he had nothing to do with that, and it has nothing to do with the cable F connector. The set needs to be serviced by an experienced tech who will restore the boost supply and replace the vertical output IC, and when I do that I charge $75 but techs in your area will vary, so be sure to ask around.

TV goes black at bottom and has horizonal lines in middle?

Hello, please check the high current area around flyback transformer, horizontal output transistor as well as the deflection connector for bad soldering. Best regards, Arpi If you need more info please advice.

Black screen with green smiley face

If your tv has a picture tube,your problem is in it. If you have only one line now,the vertical circuit is not working. You could have jarred something loose around the picture tube.Maybe a yoke lead ???
