Re: theres a line threw my tv.

It has a problem in the vertical sweep circuit that puts a nonlinearity in its output and you see the glitch in the normally gradual sweep as a line. Since a hit upside the set seems to help, you should just resolder the whole vertical circuit area (doesn't take long) and see if that cures it. If not, start replacing the electrolytic capacitors in that area.
Hope Ya Fix It!

My tv has several white horizontal lines running across the top of the tv screen the tv brand is an Insignia SDTV and its an older tv what can be done to remove these lines?

This is a retrace blanking problem. Probably, the Vg2 voltage is too high, so the cut-off point from the picture tube is not correct. Try to lower this voltage. On most common flyback trafo's it is the lower adjusting screw (plastic kind of button) which is used to set the Vg2 voltage. Turn it a bit CCW until the white lines disappear.

Split screen, kind of inverted w/white wavy lines

It is a calibration problem, let me see if I can find some schematics for your tv.

My tv sony kv-xa21m61 display too bright and many horizontal lines. no picture

Vertical retrace lines is the problem. Thin white lines runs across the entire screen, at about an inch apart to each other. Check its video output supply voltage. Reduce the screen voltage to a little bit down and check. If you still wish to know more about this fault, check this site. Pull up older posts there.

I have owned an emerson tv for two years now. All of a sudden the picture has become very blurry and white. It is not the cable connection and a DVD is also white and blurry. Even the input channels are...

you must open the back cover of tv, and then things you should do is set "SCREEN" adjustment on the flyback transformer. you must turn it counterclockwise to reduce and decrease the level of screen brightness. turn screen adjustment gradually until the horizontal blanking lines disappear from the screen. and blurred images will be sharp again

SAmsung has two white lines across screen with no picture

If the 2 white lines are in the centre of the screen it sounds like you have a fault called 'field collapse' . The 'x' or horizontal circuit on the tv deflects the beam across the screen which in your case is ok because the line runs across the screen ok. The 'y' or field circuit on the tv deflects the beam down the screen. Without a circuit diagram for your tv i cannot point to individual components.

White lines across TV screeen

if these lines are just at the top of the picture then i would suspect an electrolytic capacitor in the vertical circuit.

im pretty sure you cant fix that you probably need to buy a new one.. i know that because my somputer has a white line that runs right down that middle, not all the time but sometimes. my father looked into fixing it and he found out that you have to buy a brand new screen or tower or something like that.

White horizontal, zig-zagging lines

It sounds to me like you're describing the re-trace of the unit. It is repairable, and more so the sooner you get it to the repair facility.

These are called vertical retrace lines. They are going to get worse untill you find the bad capacitor(s) or replace the vertical driver/output IC. Please, if you have not the solid state repair experience, get a pro to assist you in this repair as there are no user replaceable parts inside this set. Good Luck PLease do not forget to rate this thread.
