Question about Toshiba 19A26 19" TV

1 Answer

Info to fix

I put this puppy away in the box after a year of use and it sat in heated storage for 12 years.
Took it out of the box and the picture only extended from the top to mid tube with the menus and channel displays scrunched up. After running for about 1/2 hour, the picture decends all the way to the bottom  but the menu is half out of sight.
I assume some electrolytic capacitor in the virtical control has dried out but I have no schematics and no clue where anything is. I hate to to discard the equipment if can be repaired.
Can anyone out there help?

Re: info to fix

Your right! Replace all the caps around/connected to, the vertical output IC. 100uf etc. Vertical IC is mounted on heat sink near yoke connector.

Only tv's with cable hookup have screen failure at top of screen

If no issue with cable directly hooked to 3 sets that are different models IT IS NOT THE SETS.

HAVE THE CABLE PROVIDER OUT AND demand it be corrected--you may need to have one or all the boxes swapped out to see if issue is box or something on the line that only reacts to box.

I have seen in my years some odd issues related to cable or sat boxes--
Saw one where on HD the convergence was way off---but on regular channels it was fine--customer had an extra box not being used and when swapped cured this problem----This should not of been possible but as I learned it was.

NOT THE SETS---you are paying for signal so get it fixed or change providers.

I have an RCA color television model # F25653BC. It sat in storage for two years. We got it out and it works except there are narrow bars across the screen all up and down the screen. What is the...

sounds like what we call "jail bars" if this the case replace the screen cap. It should be around the flyback and rated at 200 volts at least

Zenith 32" tube tv going out?

This is classical intermittent condition. These are caused by loose wire, cold solder joint, corroded terminals or such type of malfunction. They are extremely difficult to find, but easy and cheap to fix once you find them.
Probably only 50% of them are ever found; most of them are "lived with" by finding a proper slap on the back of the set, a book or magazine under one corner or something that puts enough torque or twist on the chassis to get the picture working, then just carefully leave it in that position and don't bump it again.
If you want to really find it, you will be better off doing the sluething by yourself than taking it to a shop because their time is money and the cost of labor to hunt it down may be expensive. (With luck it might be found quickly, but on average it takes along time even for a trained expert tech to find them).

1st things first, as I always say....

1. Check your soldering around the vertical section. Most sets have defects in thier soldering of the components under the board, with time. Especially true of RCA and Zenith sets, but all makes are not exempt! Again, check this first and fix as necessary.

2. Look for one or more electrolytic capacitors in the vertical section, maybe around 100uf 35v ,1uf 50v or a 220uf 35v or similar values. Change these, even if they look physically ok., observing the polarity of each. Most of the repairs I do involve these components. They fail with time and change value. Higher value caps , like 1000uf, 2200uf, etc., are usually not the reason for vertical troubles, just to note.

Further steps, if needed:

3. You might even have a shorted or open diode next to the vertical chip. It is usually black with a gray stripe on it. Be sure to replace it with the same polarity as the old one- the "stripe: denotes the cathode side of the diode. Do not get it backwards, (important!) - follow the "arrow" symbol on the board... you can check the diode with most multimeters. It should read in only one direction as a rule of thumb. If it's shorted, you'll get a reading in both directions, and if open, no reading of course. You can use most generic, 1 amp diodes (not zeners) to replace it, I found.

4. Your vertical chip itself may be bad, but you'll usually get a line straight across if it is. If after doing the above with no result, you may want to change it.

Good luck...
