Yes. if you have a black bright screen with about 16 to 20 horizontal lines going across, you have no video. suggest local service center. if it is a magnavox, this is easy. you have an open 1 ohm(approx. value) resistor on the crt board.

Try cleaning the charge wire. Move the lime green plastic handle from one side of the image unit to the other in the groove. If this doesn't work you'll need a new image unit.$$$$$. note: Make sure green handle is moved completely to the right when finished or black line will occur.

Blue spot on screen


  1. First, look for the source of the problem. Large speakers, especially older ones, are the most common offenders. Notice the position of the blue spot on the screen (left, right, upper, lower, etc.) for an indication of which direction the magnetic field is coming from.
  2. If you think you have determined the source of the magnetic field, try moving the object away from the television screen. If this does not work, continue looking for other potential causes.
  3. f you are unable to determine what is causing the magnetic field, try moving the television. Sometimes magnetic interference can come from a neighbor's equipment, especially in apartments and condos. Moving the television to another part of the room, away from shared walls, may help.
  4. If none of these techniques succeeds in removing or improving the appearance of the blue spot, try to find if their is any demagnetizing coil button available in front of the TV panel , it may be symbol like magnet and a diagonal line on it

The lines you saw, i;m sure they are the ones called retrace lines but know the failure could be located on the red CRT board. Most likely the video amplifier is defective and not necessarily the CRT.
What is the model number of your TV?

Diagonal RGB lines


It might just need degaussing. If the monitor is equipped with a degauss button, try pressing it. If not, it might eventually go away with time - sometimes when CRT monitors are moved and change orientations odd color distortions due to magnetic fields result. After a while the magnetic field fades and the colors will be back to normal.

Otherwise, upgrade to an LCD - easier on the eyes, and a lot easier on the back. :)

Diagonal green lines on a green screen


It is possible that the electron-gun inside of the CRT is having an intermittant short. It is also possible that there is an intermitttant failure in the bias or drive circuits for the CRT electron-gun.

The TV service tech would have to run some tests to determine the actual fault, and then the failed components.

If the CRT is at fault, the set will not be worth to service.

Diagonal lines


Hi It's difficult to be sure without being able to see the lines myself, but what it sounds like is some stray RF is getting into your video signal. Although your cables are supposed to be shielded, this is a common problem. The first thing I would do is move the cables or cable you are using, in relation to any power cords hanging down behind your equipment while someone watches for the lines to change or dissapear, and is that has no effect, then if possible change the position of the VCR in relation to the tv, so that if for example it is under the tv, move it to the side, or farther away, and the lines may very well dissapear. That problem is due to a common interaction between the tv and vcr where there is not enough shielding, usually inside the bottom of the tv set. Hope this helps, good luck!
