The answer is yes, if all you have to do is to adjust the horizontal hold control (usually located on the back of the TV)

The answer is no (with caveat) if you have to open up the set. This problem occurs when the horizontal oscillator is drifting off its set frequency of 15,750 Hz This can be caused by a component or components changing in value, or the problem could be caused by the loss of or decrease in the amplitude of the horizontal sync pluses within the video signal. Such a loss of amplitude can take place from the output of the Video detector to the Horizontal mixer stage (uses the Video pluses and the Horizontal oscillator to sync the picture). This means that you will be working around a hazardous section of your TV.

The caveat is if you have a background in electronics and you have the proper equipment.
1) schematic diagram of the TV to see where TV test-points are
2) multimeter to measure DC voltages at test points
3) oscilloscope to view waveform patterns in the horzontal section of the TV
4) Signal generator to produce a know good signal into the TV set.
5) Isolation Transformer to connect the TV power plug to to isolate the Tv ground from earth ground and allow proper connectivity for test equipment (plug the unit under test into the isolation transformer and the test equipment into the wall outlet.)

I hope this answers your question,
Thank you,

Picture is rolling

In the old days there was a control at the back of every tv labelled "vertical hold" that needed adjustment when the picture rolled. As tv sets became better that control was at first moved inside the cabinet and then finally deleted.

The vertical hold controlled the amount of synchronising signal (that is extracted from the signal received from the antenna) reached the frame oscillator. Today's electronics are so stable the vertical and horizontal synchronisation is automatic so while sometimes a rolling picture can be caused by a bad signal it almost invariably caused by an internal electronic fault needing the attention of an engineer.

The horizontal hold

If model number correct (the one posted here) set does not have a horizontal (rolls left to right) or a vertical (rolls top to bottom) control.

Verify model and brand so I may offer some suggestions

Continuous vertical roll on tv

Wow 5 months without a solution. NOT GOOD.. Well I hope I can help...
This sounds like a vertical hold problem, and is normally easy to fix.... There should be a couple of nob's on the lower back of the TV. One for vertical and one for Horizontal hold. You need to find the vertical hold nob and adjust it, until the rolling stops and stabilizes. If however these nob's are not visible you will have to take TV to an engineer to fix it.
Hope this helps..

Horizontal hold needs an ajustment

Horizontal rolling is your problem I thinks. In modern TVs there is no horizontal hold control like they wer in old one. All the adjustments are digital, that is related to a very accurate crystal oscillator frequency, and its cound downs. Therefore if your TV is not so old, its main Ic may be faulty, or horizontal synchronisation pulse does not reach the appropriate pin of that Ic. First check it, and if it is ok, replace the Ic.

Tv roll

Are you sure the roll isnt Vertical? as if it is then all you need to do is adjust the VERTICAL HOLD PRESET POT which should be located on the PCB somewhere, its very unusual for TV.S to roll horizontally as then the picture just goes out of sync. and you would not see a picture at all. When you find the pot turn it ( with a small screw driver) slowly until the rolling stops, if it does not stop then you have a faulty component in the vert. sync. circuitry.

Horizontal Hold

Hi, there are no user controls in modern tv`s anymore, the geniuses have put all of that inside the IC`s and it`s done "automatically" by the IC, your horizontal sync circuit is not locking correctly which means of course that that particular IC will have to be replaced, your going to need a tv tech for that repair, BMW Rider

Horizontal roll on mitusbishi 35" tv

is this a horizontal black line going up or down? if yes, this sympton is caused by a trouble in the integrated circuit or in the vertical oscillator circuit. this symptons has 2 variations. one is the intermittent rolling of the picture. this referred to as the "loose vertical hold" the other variations is the continuous upward or downward rolling of the picture
