Your symptom sounds like a faulty capacitor in the vertical deflection circuit.
What you are seeing is called vertical fold-over.
If you want to fix this yourself and are handy with a soldering iron, it is not that difficult. Just look for a 1uf capacitor near the vertical IC. The vertical IC will be a black IC with straight legs mounted to a heat sink, generally in the center of the circuit board.
Note: Be careful when working on a television as the CRT and other capacitors can hold a charge that can be very dangerous.

I would recommend that you contact a local service center and see if you can get a quote for the repair. I would normally charge between $120.00-130.00 for this type of repair. The cost may vary depending on where you are located.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Lines down screen


We have a Samsung LE32A457, whilst we were watching T.V tonight the top halve of the screen suddenly appeared with green lines halfway down the screen and that half of the picture was unwatchable, T.V is 2 years old. We have removed all scart leads but this did not help and the problem still exists, when shutting down a white horizontal line across the centre of the screen appears from this line upwards the picture is faulty. Any help or advice would be grateful.

One day my tv started having white lines in various places, then one day the scrren went white but still has a small line across the top that works fine


Hello,

The problem is "Vertical Over-drive" and the white lines are vertical retrace lines. What has happened is a component failure between the vertical oscillator and the vertical driver circuit. The component is usually a capacitor that is leaking and allowing voltages to appear where they shouldn't be.problem component is leaking and allowing DC voltages to appear where they don't belong. It's causing the vertical driver transistor to run "flat out" and will ultimately burn out the transistor from internally generated heat.
Hope this help....

Cooling problem


more than likely its the field output ic or caps around that stage

using hairdryer and freezer spray you can narrow down the faulty component

best of luck.

How do you fix a white horizontal line across top of Orion TV?


Hello eatkinson,

This denotes a problem with the vertical deflection circuit. This is more then likely the result of the vertical coupling capacitor failing. You will need the schematic diagram of the TV to find the capacitor in question. it is located between the vertical output stage and the vertical deflection winding of the yoke transformer. In addition check the continuity of the vertical winding of the yoke transformer this can cause the same problem. In any event the problem is that the vertical deflection signal is not getting to the yoke transformer or the yoke transformer is malfunctioning.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Picture problem


Usually that symptom is caused by cracked solder joints on the vertical output IC. As the IC starts heating up, the picture starts breaking up at the top with several "dancing" dark lines appearing, the top scrunches down and then when the vertical quits altogether, the screen goes completely black. A good slap on the side of the TV might make it happen faster or clear it up temporarily. If you have experience working on PC boards then you can resolder the pins of the vertical output IC but if you have never soldered parts on PC boards then allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.
