Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

TV will not turn on

I have a Philips 32PW9527/05 and it will not turn on. The screen will display a fuzzy white line from the top centre to the middle and very quickly this is replaced by a small fuzzy rainbow coloured box in the centre of the screen. The TV then shuts down leaving the on/off LED indicator light flashing red.

Horizontal lines accross the top of my TV they turn everything upside down when you look up on a video game like mountains and things and make normal Television fuzzy

the problem is in the Vertical circuit of the set, fold over and/or retrace lines at the top.

Problem will be either a bad vertical output IC or caps around it that are bad.

Unless you know how to solder and what to look for it will be a shop repair, if it is continued to be used this way sooner or later it will go to just a white line left to right in the middle of the screen.

Let me know if you need more information.

My samsung 55" DLP television

I looked up how to fix red horizontal lines on a Philips flat-screen tv. It turns out it needed the Y buffer upper replaced. I am not sure if this problem would be similar but it might help. I am also searching how to fix a fuzzy screen on a DLP tv. Hope you find what you need.

White line on the middle of the screen

No you cannot solve this yourself unless you have a soldering iron with solder plus be able to identify dry joints or defective capacitors. Please take to a TV service centre.

I have a magnavox model 25B800-7562. Audio works but no video.

This fault is known as frame collapse. Do not leave the tv on in this condition you will damage the screen. There is a fault in the field output stage, you will need an engineer.

White horzontal lines on the top of screen

Typical symptom of a faulty screen voltage capacitor. You'd need a schematic to locate the cap and then change it out.

Just read your list of problems The first fault (Diagonal lines & picture collapse from left & right) Sounded like either A poor connection or dry solder joint either on scan coils or scan coil plug / socket on main pcb.
If this were the case the engineer that called out should have spotted this & sorted it very easily. But you say it is still the same so what did he do ?
Did he give you a reciept with break down of what he did ? If yes please post it here for me to go over.

The sound problem you describe has thrown me a little so could you please post your tv model number on this page so I can see if this is a stock fault.

The static shocks you are getting is relatively normal & not a problem unless you are getting them off of speaker grilles or even tv casing if it is silver in colour.
I am UK based & have access to samsung technical but I will need your tv model number.

RCA 32V420T 32" TV

This RCA set uses the CTC187BD chassis. Look on the back of the set and to the right of the cable connector you will see 2 controls sticking out, one on top of the other. The top control is for focus and the bottom one is screen, or overall brightness. If these controls have been turned clockwise then you will have a bright, fuzzy picture with white lines (retrace lines) through it. Tune in a channel with white letters on the screen and turn the top (focus) control until the letters are crisp and sharp. Go into the menu and turn the contrast and brightness all the way down, and then turn the bottom control (screen) until you can just see the picture, just above the point where the picture is too dark to see. Go back into the menu and reset the contrast and brightness and the picture will be back to perfect.
