Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

Panasonic TV - no picture, but sound is ok

The picture on my panasonic tv is not working.  There is a very thin line accross the middle of the screen when you press the menu button or switch to a video input, but other than that - no picture.
Other than that, the sound and other functions seem to be working - as far as I can tell.

Is there any suggestions?

Re: Panasonic TV - no picture, but sound is ok



it is due to vertical section failure.

  • before you start any work reduce brightness to avoid crt burn.
  • please check some loose contact or loose connector.
  • check supply to vertical section
  • check parts in vertical output section
  • check vertical ic.
  • hope this will help.
  • good luck.

The picture on my 31"

It sounds like the tube has burnt out. Now that price of lcds have come down especially in that size class it will cost just as much to repair as it would be to purchase a new tv.

I have a CRT tv and the picture is just a thin band in the centre of the picture tube. The sound is ok

That is called "Frame Collapse" because the picture "Frame" has collapsed into the single horizontal line.
It may be caused by dry joints or output failure of the frame output stage.
A fairly inexpensive repair.

Old Panasonic tv approx 10/12 y/o? -Model TX-28CK1L Serial no ND-0360158 Last night 50% of screen from top to middle "blacked out"--half picture still visable on bottom half. Very bright thin...

The main coupling capacitor feeding the frame scan coils has failed or the output stage on the frame stage has failed due to dry capacitors or dry joints.
Fault finding and components are not a problem and yes it is very repairable. Any technician that knows how television works can repair this standard frame output stage.
I hope you find a good technician.

Tv not working

this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!

White line horizontially through middle of picture

A repair like this is in the vertical drive/output section of the TV set. It could be a simple capacitor causeing this problem or a combination of the capacitor and the output IC. A repair like this should not exceed 120 to 150 US. Is it worth that to you? How much can you replace it for? Good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this thread.
