Blue screen on my 27" Advent tv/dvd combo

I have had this tv for about 3 years and all of a sudden when it's turned on it shows a bright blue screen with some brighter horizontal lines. You can see a shadow of what is supposed to be on the screen behind the blue. Is this something that could be repaired or should I just chuck it? What shoudl my next step be?

the "NO DISC" could mean that the heads are damaged, the disc(disks) [ you did try more then one?] are dirty, not the right DVD format.Even a small finger print,smug can cause problems!
you will have to take the TV\DVD apart to find the problem. I would suggest, buy a simple DVD player and connect it to the back or the [AV] audo\video plugs.

This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

Hello
Only one line across the screen is due to total vertical sweep failure. In all CRT tvs have both vertical and horizontal sweeps to spread the picture to the entire screen. If vertical sweep failure occurs, you will see a horizontal line across the screen, and if horizontal sweep failure happens, you will see a vertical line in the middle of the screen or no lines or a dead tv.
In your TV, now the sound will be ok, I thinks so, and posts this solution.

You just open your tv, and locate the vertical output section in the circuit board. It is very easy to findout. Just see the four wires goes from the deflection yoke [the coil fitted at the neck of the picture tube], there will be four of them, out of which two of them will be thick, usually red and blue coloured, and another two of them will be thin. You just follow the two thin wires, which in turn goes to a plug in adaptor and to the circuit board. Just put the circuit board upside down and follow the two tracks undeneath, which will guide you to the vertical output section.
There you can see an IC screwed onto a metal heatsink. That is the vertical output IC. Just check keenly for any loose solderings on the legs of that Ic. It may happen because, this Ic will heat up when the set works. Prolonged times of heating and cooling may make loose solderings or bad solderings. It is very difficult to locate the exact loose point because some of them may have micro type loose contacts, that can't be detected with naked eye.
You just resolder all the legs of that Ic, by applying a little more solder, without shor circuiting the terminals. Chek whether you have rectified the problem or not. If not check the main supply point leg voltage. If there is no voltage follow the track and find out the fault. If there is voltage, check the voltage at the output pin of that Ic. It must be somewhat half to that of its supply voltage. If main voltage is there, and there is no voltage on the output pin, or that voltage is equal to that of supply voltage, the vertical output IC is defective. Resolder it out from the board and go for a same type and number. Replacing it will solve your problem. There is an other rare chance to get the vertical windings in the deflection yoke to open. Bu it isvery rare, out of 1/1000 of it may happen. It can be checked by continuity measuring of that coins winding ends.
You just go with confidence. Take every precautions we take before working with an electrical equipment. Proceed. You can and you will. Take care. OK.
