Question about Sanyo DS31520 31" TV
Suddenly our 5 year old Sanyo TV started having picture compressed at the bottom of the screen and a black strip 3 inches. After about two days now when you turn it on the picture is just compressed into a strip in the middle of the TV. It gradually expands and then the picture has lines and is sort of jumpy.
Is it possibly a cheap fix that I could take care of myself? Is it a fix that a good repairman could fix in cheaper than replacing the TV or should I be looking at new TVs?
Does the picture eventually look good after it warms up? If so you may be able to isolate the faulty component in the vertical section. Go get yourself a can of compressed air with a straw that fits in the nozzle. Hold the can upside down and you can spray individual components with super cold air and perhaps find out which one is going bad. It's probably the vertical output IC. There is really not a lot of parts in that section.
