Question about Philips Magnavox TS3260C 32" TV

1 Answer

Tv picture is broken into vertical lines

The television splits the picture into vertical lines. The lines are closely spaced together, but are still obvious. It's like looking at a photo after its been through the shredder. Otherwise, the TV works fine. About 4 years ago, we had a problem with the resistor( and found the fix on this website)

If the TV supports it, you can go into service mode by press ing the following on the remote control:

062596 i

This will take you into a service menu. It also changes channel as you press the keys, so change to a used channel to get a picture back.

I am not familiar with this model, but the principles should be the same.

Using the remote control to navigate the menu, you are looking for "allignments", and from there "Vertical Amplitude" or V/AMP or VA or similar.

BE CAREFUL when making adjustments, as you can permanently damage the TV if you adjust any critical settings.

When making changes, make a note of the original setting so you can put it back if its not the right option. Also only make changes 1 notch at a time. It will be obvious when you have the correct option, so if nothing is happening after 2 or 3 notches, then put it back. This will minimise risk to the TV.

When you have finished, look for a "Save settings" option, if not just press standby to get out of the service menu.

SOURCE: Philips 27PT6441 27" TV Problem

jon5902,

Pls note that my experience is with the phillips 27" model27PT6341/07. It may not be the same board as yr model, as I can't remember nor find the service manual anymore. (browse around online for it though)

However, after taking the back off. Look close to the rca jack and svideo connection. Mine is located about an inch from the svideo connection.

Here are some pics that may help you.

The new one is the black and gold one marked 10uf 100v in the pic.
Other users have advised to go as high as 10uf 250v, to avoid having the cap overload again.

PS. I had the lines for about 2 weeks. They got steadily worse then one day my tv looked like it was broadcasting an hourglass. The lines converged in the center and flared outward (no pic).

SOURCE: blue,red,green lines on top of screen for couple months. Now tv wont work.

The foldover is because of a bad capacitor in the vertical circuit. Given the "new" sympotom of a dead set, I would suspect that the vertical IC has failed. This should be a relatively simple repair for a TV shop. If you wish to attempt a repair of this yourself, update this and confirm your model number and I'll post more details and instructions.

Upper 1/4 of picture is distorted by tightly spaced horizontal lines. What do you think is causing this?


This sounds like a vertical fold over.
This happens when the filter capacitors close to the vertical IC have failed or changed value. The are very inexpensive, and relatively easy to replace.
Remove the back panel. Locate the vertical IC. There will be a number of capacitors around it (3-4). I just replace them all. They cost under $1 each, so no testing, just change them.

Line across the tv no sound no picture


If you look carefully at teh line it should be red, green, and blue close together to appear like a white line. If this is the case, then the vertical circuit has failed. This is often poor solder connections at the vertical IC or a defective IC. Expect a parts cost in the $20 range for this repair.

There are at least two issues here. First you have bad buffer boards. Second Very possibly a bad X-Main bd and P-Logic bds. Have a trained Samsung tech troubleshoot the set.

Green Lines with Picture behind


Could be serious...but first check the screen modes (for split screen, format, etc) to be sure the tv is set up properly for the picture you are trying to watch. Switch the input to a DVD or something similar. Is it the same? If not, you have a mode/resolution problem with the tuner and perhaps some other device.

Black horizontal lines across bottom 1/3 of screen


This is due to vertical section failure. Change the vertical supply rectifier diode and supply filters. Then check zener diode leakage in pumpup circuit section. Also check any electrolytic capacitors leakage in vertical section. If it is old model tv change vertical height, vertical lenearity presets also. I hope given details useful to you.
