Re: Screen only showing single line of video in center.

Hello, a horrizontal line trouble is a vertical section problem, check some parts at vertical section, the vertical ic, the power source of vertical section ie diode & resistors. a line means that vertical section is not osilating. it may be the vertical output ic is defective or theres no power supply to the vertical ic.check the parts that is connected to the vertical ic one by one, you have to got a lot of patient for this. ty

Tv screen is black except for 1 horizontal line of color

The line is there because the vertical deflection unit - the one that spreads that line across the entire screen to form the image - has failed. Replacing it is a job for a professional, or at least an experienced amateur, and the parts will be quite difficult to find for such an old tv .

This could be a capacitor if your lucky but can also be the horizontal transistor. The repair could cost you between 60$ and 150$
My opinion; it's not worth it.

yes you got vert foldover best bet buy a new tv . you can fix it but if you replace the vert anp and the assorted caps and IF you still have a problem in the power supply in a really short time (1-2 hours) you will burn out the amp again , and blow 2 caps and a zener diode all over a regulator problem that showes it self when ever it wants too .... out 35.00 in parts and 2.5 hours labor right back where i started me you dont want to open this can of worms . if you have it done except to pay between 100.00 -200,00 for the repair and ask them to run the set for a day or so before you pick it up

Black screen w/ line in the center.

Its sounds like a Frame collapse, you should check the voltages to the frame chip if it is fine you should try to replace this chip.

I have a KV27FS210 sony wega trinitron tv. It turns on and has a single horizontal line across the center of the screen then buzzes shows a continuous zigzag line from the top to bottom of the screen with...

The single horizontal line is a problem with the vertical circuit. Look for a small flat id attached to a heatsink that should be marked LA7837 or something similar. Try resoldering the pins of this IC first. If that does not resolve it, replace the IC.

Keep us posted.

JVC 27" CRT TV AV-27BP3 display shows single horizontal line

I have a similar problem on my CRT computer monitor (AcerView 76c). It is an old screen and I think it is just at the end of its life, much like your TV. Having some background in physics, I would be pretty sure that the problem is with the cathode ray tube's vertical deflection system. The horizontal deflection electrodes are working while the vertical one is not. This results in a display of a single horizontal line (or in my case, a few superimposed) in the centre of the screen. Where both X and Y (horizontal and vertical) deflectors fail then the electron gun firing would result in a single bright spot in the dead-centre of the screen.

So really, we have no choice but to move on and buy a new set as repair is probably just as, if not more, expensive than replacement with a new device. Seeing as your post was in 2007, I hope you managed to solve the problem.

Best wishes,

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom

It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
