Could also be the field output chip - seems to be a common problem with Hitachi TVs of a certain age, sometimes caused by absence of thermal paste on the back of the chip. Check solder joints on each leg before replacing chip itself.

We have perfect sound but only a thin horizontal line in the middle of the screen.

this is a capacitor that has gone bad in the vertical delfection stage of the tv. it is an very easy and cheap fix if you know someone who knows how to solder and replace electronic components. If not then you'll just have to get another tv as taking it into a tv repair shop is not worth the cost. You could get another tv for what they will charge you to repair it,

SanyoTV-blk screen w/thin line of light across screen great sound

Your Vertical Amp is probably Blown (bad) , but before you change that check all capacitors around the vertical amp IC and / or resolder resistors and diodes around vertical amplifier.
And NO it is NOT the Picture Tube
Good Luck

Horizontal lines appear on the top 25% of the tv when it is first turned on The lines gradually go away after 45-60 min. new tv or repair only? thanks

You have leaky capacitors in the vertical feedback loop which is not a major repair. Probably 100mfd/50v., in that range.( not $ )
I would venture a guess of $ 50 - 75.00 for the repair. Thats up to you.

Bright line coming in center of screen

Hi Shailendrar , your problem sounds like vertical collapse , the whole picture has collapsed into a thin , very bright centre line ? maybe the result of dry solder joints , does banging on the side of the tv temporarily fix ? if so , the circuit board requires inspection for bad solder joints . Alternately the vertical chip/transistor may be blown , replace as required. Cheers T

My picture is black except for a thin horizontal line

hi When you let the line to long it will burn in!! you need to look into the VERTICAL output section. Most notably check the solder joints on the vert output IC and ESR the caps. If you don't know what any of that means, then take it to a professional. good luck
