Re: tv screen goes blank with a line across middle

Hi Andy.

This is a straight forward repair & wont be expensive.
The problem is either dry joints on frame chip or component going thermal and failing at a certain temperature.
Cost for repair will be between £35.00 to £55.00 ask for a quote first.

I turn my tv on and can see the picture for a minute or so...then it goes to just a line across the screen. It's like the screen closes, leaving a line in the middle (left to right of screen)

The problem is with its vertical scan output section. Visit this site. Similar fault and its way fro rectification are described here.

Problem with tv

The problem is sometimes caused by the vertical output integrated circuit (IC) failing, but usually it's bad solder connections. If you or someone you know is comfortable with electronic soldering, a few minutes spent resoldering the IC pins to the circuit board will often solve the problem. Failure of these connections is common because the IC gets quite hot (and it's mounted on a metal heat sink). The heating and cooling cycles cause the solder joints on the circuit board to crack. You can usually see the trouble with light and a magnifying glass; gray grainy joints instead of shiny connections, and often visible ring cracks around the pins.

Hi, Very often, the vertical IC is the culprit. What happens is due to excessive heat, the solder joints of the IC's pins gets undone. More often than not, re-applying heat through a soldering iron would solve the problem. It may also be a wise move to re-solder surrounding components and to check for any loose connections. Pls be reminded of safety precautions when working inside a TV unit. Hope this be of help. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Missus driving me mad!! please help

this sympton is cause by a breakdown in the video amplifier, ABL (automatic brightness limiting) circuit, crt circuit or in the horizontal circuit and high voltage circuits. according to your experience, it seems that a certain component is already deteriorating, when it becomes hot it looses its function. probably ic, transistor, resistor or capacitor in the above circuits. but im sure its not the tube which is the most expensive of all the parts.
