My JVC tv picture has only one quarter of the screen

Hi. 1/4 screen. Horizontal or vertical ? Makes an important difference. I need more details, like typenumber f.i. Also, you must be able to carry out repairs on this electronic circuitry. Otherwise it makes no sense talking about components etc.

No horizontal and vertical deflection available:- audio OK

Check its horizontal output stage circuit. Replace damaged component/s. Vertical output stage gets its working voltage from the horizontal output transformer. If you want to get vertical deflection, this transformer, otherwise known as {LOT] should work to produce the supply voltage to vertical output stage.

No,Ur vertical/horizontal IC is shorted or cold soldiers.Could be the parts that support the IC is also.

Picture on TV ''squeezed'' to center of screen horizontally

Check the horizontal trafo output voltage,the capacitors and the power supply voltage (135-155V dif.the tube diameter).

Tv stays black

Do you have audio and if so can you change channels to hear other programs? If so have a bad vertical IC. Have a tech turn up the screen control to see a white horizontal line. By your question I would say this will correct the problem.

Picture on RCA TV shrinks to a horizontal line

Sounds to me you have a cold solder joint ( loose solder connection ) on the printer circuit board around or on the vertical chip or on one of the vertical capacitors. You may also have a bad vertical chip or a bad vertical capacitor, but I doubt it since it did come and go. I'de get a soldering iron and some solder and touch up the connections. I will remind you that you need to always excersise saftey by making sure, before removing the back, unplug the TV from the wall, and use care not to come in contact with the large red wire going to the back of the picture tube as the picture tube can be turned off and still store lots of voltage ( up to 35,000 volts). Always stay safe and when soldering, use care not to run solder across places that will make a short.
Good Luck and I hope this helps

TV problem

Hello Barbara76,
Is this a Horizontal line (inch or two) across the screen, if so
the fault could be either a faulty Vertical IC,Faulty Electrolytic
capacitors or just simple dry joints.

TV video problem

If you have intermittent line horizontally across both tv screens then there is likely to be bad solder connections on the vertical ic's of both of them. This can be fixed by taking the back off with quarter inch nut driver and carefully sliding the chassis out and turning it up to see the solder side. I don't know the location numbers but the vertical ic will be mounted on a metal heat sink and the connections will be in a row. Sometimes you can see the bad connections. You may need a magnifying glass. I recommend someone who has experience soldering electronic circuits. No solder bridges etc. This is for intermittent (works sometimes) problem on vertical ic. If the line stays then the chip ic is bad along with a 1 ohm resistor off the flyback high voltage transformer. From what you described you likely have bad connections. Hope this helps
