Question about Toshiba 27AF43 27" TV

1 Answer

Horizontal line (with about an inch of picture)

Our tv is about 3 or 4 years old--no problems.  All of a sudden we just have a horizontal line with about an inch of the bottom of the picture with it.  Doesn't work with VCR or DVD either.  Thanks for any ideas/solutions.

    A horizontal bright line in the middle of the screen with just about an inch of picture underneath on some channels. It happened twice before when starting the tv but disappeared in a couple of hours as unexpectedly as it came. This time nothing seems to bring it back to normal

Check a capacitor on the horizontal section

Lines down screen

We have a Samsung LE32A457, whilst we were watching T.V tonight the top halve of the screen suddenly appeared with green lines halfway down the screen and that half of the picture was unwatchable, T.V is 2 years old. We have removed all scart leads but this did not help and the problem still exists, when shutting down a white horizontal line across the centre of the screen appears from this line upwards the picture is faulty. Any help or advice would be grateful.

Vertical line picture

problem is caused by the loss of horizontal deflection signal. It is quite surprising that the entire unit is still working, since usually, a loss of H-Out will disable the entire set. Problem can be as simple as loose solder connection to a more complicated defective horizontal circuit. I would suggest havint it checked by a professional TV tech.

25 inch sanyo tv

If the horizontal lines going through the picture are fine white lines, then I would suspect the picture tube as having a heater to cathode short or some other problem. Since some sets have had a 3 year warranty on the picture tube, you may be lucky unless the labor to replace the tube is more than the set is worth. Sanyo is usually not a good name in consumer electronics anymore, so if you're looking for a replacement I would look elsewhere.

After a household power blips during bad weather, we have horizontal lines ....

Unfortunately there isn't any way to repair your tv as the magnet has distorted the tube that is in the tv and with CRT becoming obsolete the repair is likely to be very costly so probably your chaepest option is to buy a new tv .

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.

This should be repairable. It may be the LVDS Cable or the Main board problem. The only other problem is the T-Con Board.

Picture deterioration

Your whole problem my freind is dryed up capacitors. You should go, if you have the technical ability to replace these capacitors, to, download the schematic diagram, and start replacing the waveshaper capacitors in the vertical drive circuit.
