Re: Thin Horizontal line through tv blank screen.

Replaced vertical IC ( la78041 ??>.. Or La78040 ). Look for born resistor beside IC. Replaced capacitor 100uf 35V too!!! Good luck !!

TV screen has a thin horizontal line in center

this will only help until the next time it is out of alignment but if you slap the side of your tv about where the line is it should straighten out but there is no telling how long it will stay straight......My sons tv was doing that and i had a tv when i was young that did it that is what my mom told me to do and what i told my son to do and it works.... the problem is an alignment or conection problem from dust most likely.

Picture has been reduced to a thin line in center of set sound and remote functions still work

Your TVs vertical output section has the trouble. All TVs have both vertical and horizontal scanning sections, which scans the picuture on the secreen both vertically and horizontally, to get a picture frame. If horizontal scan fails, you will see a vertical line at the middle of the screen, and if vertical scan fails, there will be a horizontal line across the middle of the screen. Your TV has the second stated trouble. To get it rectified, you have to open your Tv.
Unplug your TV from mains socket and open it. Locate the vertical output section. It is so easy to locate. Your TVs picture tube neck id fitted a coil alongwith it, which is called the deflection yoke, and it will have four wire connections. Out of these four wires, two of them will be thick, usually red and blue in colour, and the other twos will be thin. Just follow the two thin wires, you will reach to a point that these four wires are plughed onto a pin connection, on the main printed circuit board.
Upside down the board, and trace the track to which these two thin wires goes, through the print side, will reach to the vertical output section.
Normally this section consists of an IC for this purpose, and can be screwed onto a metal heatsink, as it will get heated when it works. Before unsodering it , just look at the soldering points of this IC pins for any loose soldering points. Loose soldering are very difficult to locate, as thay will be very minute up to microns, so resolder all the pins of this Ic, by applying a little more solder, and see the effect. Sometimes this will resolve the problem. If not go tho the main input voltage that goes to Ic pin. If it is not there, check out the reason. If it is there and still vertcal scanning does not occur, resolder out the IC from the circuit board, and go for a same type and number.
If you wants anymore asistance, feel free to contact me through Fixya. OK.

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,

Insignia 32" Tube TV NS-RTV32

The vertical output IC LA7847 is failing. It will likely fail permanately and you will have just the horizontal line. The set will require service. Just do not run the set very long in this state. That thin white line can likely burn into the crt phospher and will show all the time thus ruining the glass picture tube...

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!

Picture goes to one thin horizontal line in middle of screen

There is a bad solder connection in the vertical sweep circuit. if you know how toi solder, go and find the vertical output IC and resolder that first.. but if you have no solid state electronic repair experience, please find a trained tech to assist you in this repair, as if you wait it may end up costing you double of what it would now, so haveit done ASAP. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this one.
