Question about Televison & Video
Our TV has a thin horizontal line across the entire TV screen. I know that the picture has collapsed (Vertical?). We used to be able to hit the TV a couple of times and the picture would come back. Well it won't anymore. Sice it seemed to be an intermintent problem, I figured there was a bad solder joint somewhere on the board. Can you point me in the right direction? Where should I be looking? Any help would be greatly appriciated.
Hi, your correct it is collapsed vertically, you should have re-soldered it before it failed because now you may have to replace the IC but I would re-solder it first as this possibly will fix it, look for a small aluminum (silver colored) heatsink with a black 7-10 pin IC screwed onto the heatsink, flip the main board over and this IC will probably have 2-3 (or more) pins broken, re-solder with 60-40 tin/lead solder, you didn`t give make & model number so thats all the info I can give you, good luck, BMW Rider
