Question about Toshiba 27AF41 27" TV
Hi, I have a 27" Toshiba Tube tv. It has great picture quality, no dead pixel, but once in a while it will turn into a bright flat line in the middle of the tv screen. The problem usually goes away if I turn off the tv and turn it back on again. So it's no a big problem, but it's kind of annoying. Someone in this forum had suggested to replace the vertical output IC. Can anyone tell me how much would this cost? Thanks so much for your help.
It could be the vertical output IC, but there may be other possible causes which include:
- bad solder contacts on deflection yoke connectors or dirty connector contacts (on the circuit board and / or on the picture tube neck)
- bad solder contacts on the vertical output IC or associated components (check for little cracks in the solder around the pins, these are so called "cold" or bad / broken contacts)
- power loss to the vertical output IC - check for any burned resistors or other components around that IC, assuming you know which one it is - see which ICs are connected to the wires going to the deflection yokes (coils) on the picture tube neck and check them well.
You need to resolder any bad contacts, clean any dirty pins on the connectors and replace any burnt out components (assuming you can still determine the type or value of the component).
Since you mentioned the problem occurs once in a while, this means that the IC probably fails when it warms up, which can often happen if there are loose connections or bad solder contacts.
Anyway, it could turn out to be a faulty IC, i just suggested a few other things that can be fixed quite easily, and possibly without the need to replace any of the components.
