Sylvania vertical deflection problem

I simply want an estimate or range of the expense associated with fixing a vertical deflection problem on a 3 year old sylvania television. we used the television for about 2.5 years when the picture was reduced to a single horizontal line. I cant afford to spend a lot....but when i called the tv repair place, no estimate could be given. (they refused to give an estimate without seeing the TV). thanks!

    I live in the sticks...and will have to take the TV to a nearby town which is probably still the sticks (northern panhandle of West Virginia). Hopefully, the "sticks" factor will contribute to a low cost of repair. Your estimate is not as scary as others I saw online, so I appreciate your taking the time to post. Have a great holiday season!

I don`t know where you live and it makes a BIG difference, the cost of doing business is waaay more in NYC than Peoria. At my shop if you brought it in, approximately $110 plus tax (6% here in Fl.) I`m basing this on the fact it needs the output IC, you may not need the IC it`s possible the 26 volt line is missing to the IC but you asked for a generic guess and that`s what it would cost you here, remember: Big City means big rent which means much higher bill, I`m in a little town in western Fl. hope this answers your question, good luck

What is the cause of my 14inch videocon crt tv appears only a single vertical line in the middle


The image on a CRT TV is produced by a beam of electrons which is controlled by a magnetic field to move the beam top to bottom and left to right. A single line suggests that the vertical deflection is working but not the horizontal deflection (left to right). There are a number of components associated with this and requires a competent TV repair engineer to fix. Better to to buy a new TV!

No vertical deflection-need schematic


follow the 2 sets of wires off the yoke. one goes to the horizontal sweep section and the other goes to the vertical. the drive ic with the metal tab is blown.that is what drives the vertical deflection. there is a few capacitors there. 1mf at 160v and .47 at 160 and 2.2mf at 50v on most sylvania sets . if the plastic on the top of the capacitor is shrunk,it is getting hot and is no good.that can cause a loss of sweep or foldover.99% of the time it is the vertical output ic that is gone.

Verticle wavy lines, worse when cold


hello,
This is a vertical deflection problem - possibly a bad capacitor, bad connection, flyback/pumpup diode, or other component. None of these should be very expensive (in a relative sort of way).

If the symptoms change - particularly if they become less severe - as the set warms up, a dried up electrolytic capacitor is most likely. If they get worse, it could be a bad semiconductor. Freeze spray or a heat gun may be useful in identifying the defective component.

It is often easiest to substitute a good capacitor for each electrolytic in the vertical output circuit. Look for bad connections (particularly to the deflection ports), then consider replacing the vertical output IC or transistor(s).

A missing power supply voltage, defective vertical output IC, or a component associated with it is likely bad. A bad connection or blown fusable resistor may be the cause of a missing power supply voltage.

The following are NOT possible: CRT, flyback (except possibly where it's the source for a missing voltage but this is more likely just a bad solder connection at a flyback pin), tuner where the controller is at fault - see the sections on these specific brands. I am just trying to think of really expensive parts that cannot possibly be at fault.
Hope this will help..

Vertical lines in the picture


Hello, This require you opening the television and having an ohmmeter to work with. This is a vertical deflection problem - possibly a bad capacitor, bad connection, flyback/pumpup diode, or other component.
If the symptoms change - particularly if they become less severe - as the set warms up, a dried up electrolytic capacitor is most likely. If they get worse, it could be a bad semiconductor. Freeze spray or a heat gun may be useful in identifying the defective component.
It is often easiest to substitute a good capacitor for each electrolytic in the vertical output circuit. Look for bad connections (particularly to the deflection yoke), then consider replacing the vertical output IC or transistor(s).
A defective deflection yoke is also possible or in rare cases, a bad yoke damping resistor (e.g., 500 ohms, may be mounted on the yoke assembly itself).
Where there is a wide running vertically on the screen the likely causes could be a missing power supply voltage, defective vertical output IC, or a component associated with it is likely bad. A bad connection or blown fusable resistor may be the cause of a missing power supply voltage.
The following are NOT possible: CRT, flyback (except possibly where it's the source for a missing voltage but this is more likely just a bad solder connection at a flyback pin), tuner (except for the famous RCA/GE/Proscan or Sony models where the controller is at fault - see the sections on these specific brands). I am just trying to think of really expensive parts that cannot possibly be at fault :-).
Note that some movies or laser karaoke discs are recorded in 'letterbox' format which at first glance looks like a squashed vertical problem. However, the picture aspect ratio will be correct and turning up the brightness will reveal a perfectly normal raster above and below the picture.

H line problem


I think you are describing 'no vertical deflection.' If all you have on the screen is a single horizontal line, the vertical deflection circuit (or IC) has died. Unless you have service documentation on hand, I can't give a part number to replace but this is typically not an expensive failure and if the set was OK before, it is worth having repaired.

Sony kv-32fs13 4 blink code


The tech is wright about the deflection board having a fault. This failure is found in the vertical deflection circuitry.
The quote is the one that seems to be a bit high, instead of getting this TV fix; I would save that money to buy another TV.
Good Luck.

Horizontal line across middle


From your description, this is a loss of vertical deflection. There are some failed components in the vertical deflection amplifier. An experienced TV tech should be able to service the set. It would be best to send the set to the authorized service rep for your area.

If you run the set with this fault, the line will be burned in to the screen. It is best to not use the set in this type of condition.

As for the cost, the labour will most likely be the most expensive aspect of servicing your set. Ask for an estimate before accepting the repair.

I know your problem for sure. If the fine line you are seeing is horizontal, you have a bad capacitor (or cold solder joint) in the "vertical deflection" circuits. Look for four of the largest wires coming from the picture tube and follow them down to the circuit board. These wires do NOT come out of the BACK of the tube, where most of the wires come from, but rather come sort of from the side of the tube. Two of them will go down to the board near the largest component on your board known as the "flyback transformer". Disregard these two and follow the other two. They will go near either two transistors or a vertical deflection chip. The board will normally be labeled "vertical" or vertical deflection near these transistors. There will be two or more capacitors very near these transistors. Look at them on the underside of the board and look for a bad solder joint. Push on the capacitors left and right while observing the underside of the board and you might be able to see the bad joint. If it is a chip instead of transistors, you could still have a bad capacitor or cold solder joint, but in most cases if it's a chip, then the chip is bad. Since, however, you can tap on the tv and make it work temporarily, this tells me that you probably have two vertical deflection transistors with associated capacitors. If the caps are good and no cold joints, then replace the transistors. This part of your tv is what pulls the electron beam up and down vertically and is thus called the vertical deflection circuits. With no vertical deflection, then the beam just moves left and right and never moves up and down. The picture is still there, but it is contained inside the fine line where of course you cannot see it. The parts in this circuit are not expensive at all. Keever

The problem you are having is a vertical deflection problem. The screen is being compressed to a thin white line. It's probably a defective vertical output module or transistor. This part is not too expensive. Less likely would be a vertical deflection coil, which would be more expensive because its usually glued to the picture tube and harder to replace. You'll need to take your set to service center to have it serviced.

Good Luck!

You have a bad vertical output IC, or the sweep power supply that drives the IC is bad. Your going to need the service schematic diagram and the know how to fix solid state electronics.
