No, your picture tube is fine. This is a problem in the vertical circuit that deflects the beam up and down. This repair is fairly typical across most television brands and should not cost too much to fix. I don't want to quote another shops pricing but from us this would run about $150.00 to fix.

Picture goes to a single horizontal line.


Your problem is due to failure of the vertical scanning circuits in your TV. This is quite common and is caused by aging components. Generally drying out capacitors
You got to be careful not to leave it on too long when the picture collapses, it will burn a permanent line across the screen.
If you are an electronics expert you can fix it if you get a schematic. If not please don't attempt to reapir it yourself since there is high voltage in side the TV.
The problem may get worse with time.

JVC picture turns into a single line in middle of screen.


This is caused due to random falure of vertical scan circuits. It generally is caused by dried out capacitors or bad driver IC. Unfortunately it will get worse. If you fail to turn the TV off quickly you will burn a permenant horizontal line on the tube. Trip to the repair shop I am afraid.

Our Toshiba HD tv has gone on the fritz. Every so often when we turn it on their is a single line across the middle of the screen, the rest is black. you can hear the program that the TV is tuned to. Any...


The vertical output ic needs re-soldered, look for a 5 pin ic connected to a heat sink near the flyback, re-solder the pins. If you are not up to this a local shop should be able to do this and it should not be an expensive tv repair.

Some of the components in the vertical deflection circuit area, and possibly in some other areas as well, have become thermo sensitive with age and use.

An experienced TV tech can troubleshoot the set to locate the defective parts and change them.

Black display with a horizontal white line in the middle.


Middle going across the screen from left to right??
This unit is plagued with bad solder connections in the comb filter board and flatpack underneath the comb filter board. These connections can cause any odd number of problems in video display. If it is that it's not expensive - virtually no parts. If it's a single line across the screen could also be the vertical circuit involved.
My suggestion is to have it estimated at a reputable shop and take it to them rather than the more expensive pu/del charges.
If you would like go to http://www.nesda.com/locator/state_search.php and locate a servicer from there. Kinda like going to the AMA to find a doctor...
Hope this helps!

TV Picture Reduced to Line across the Middle


This is called field-collapse. Either

1. The problem lies in the vertical deflection voltage-doubler circuit. The usual fault is a single capacitor of 100uF/35V that has failed. It is normally connected to a rectifier diode right at the vertical IC. Replacing the capacitor usually gets it working perfectly again.

or

2. The vertical drive IC has failed.

If you are finicky around technical work, then a reputable local repair shop in your locality should do it quickly for you and charge only labour.

Tv not working


this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!
