Re: tv toshiba vertical problem

It's the Vertical Output Transistor that has gone bad. Parts may be available online with Mouser Electronics, or Digikey

My screen has one line going across the middle.

The problem is a vertical deflection issue, caused by bad connections on the vertical deflection ic, or needs to be replaced and one or two bad capacitors.

One line horizontal onscreen

This is well known problem with the Toshiba line, the problem is in the vertical deflection circuits, it causes the picture to collapse to a flat white line, the vertical output ic and two to three capacitors need to be replaced to correct the issue.

There were lines at top of TV for sometime then today TV just shut off by it self and burning smell was apparent. Tried turning tv back on and just got souns and a bright line through center of TV. My...

you have a vertical problem . You will need the chip or IC. please check the voltage source to the chip(IC). Diode could be short. Ic had bad solder joints and there are 2 caps that will need to be replaced 100uf or 220 uf caps in the vertical circuits.

White lines at top of screen - can't make go away

You have a problem in the vertical output circuit. Check for bad capacitors around the vertical output IC. The value of these caps are marked on the side of them. Thanks for using fixya. Please take a moment and rate this responce.

MY toshiba tv MW27F11C only shows a white line when turned on

Hello uuka,

You have vertical collapse. This is most often caused by a defective vertical output integrated circuit, an open dropping resistor which feeds the supply voltage to the I.C., one or more defective electrolytic capacitors in the vertical circuit or something as simple as bad solder connections. The latter will usually manifest itself as an intermittent failure. Less likely, but stilla possibility is a defective yoke, but this a rare.

Unless you are handy with a soldering iron and have some experience this is definitely something I suggest that you refer to a qualified technician. Depending on the actual cure for the problem, this would typically be under $100 in my shop, but we are in a small town and prices are cheap. I would definitely recommend a repair on this since it can not be replaced. They don't make a TV/DVD/VCR combination any longer and the picture quality on these Toshiba/Orion combos has been very good over time.

Hope this helped and don't forget to rate...

White lines accross top of screen on our 27 inch Toshiba,

lcd or plasma.
are the lines solid or blurred. do they have sharp edges.
You may have a memory problem with the display which can only be repaired by factory trained technicians, or a brave soul willing to find parts on ebay.

Tv not showing a picture

Hello e26pitts,

If the line is horizontal then it could be a problem in your vertical deflection section, if the line is vertical then the problem is in your horizontal deflection section. Now for a little more detail.

If Horizontal line is present the vertical section of the yoke transformer is nit responding to current flowing through it due to being open, or the vertical coupling capacitor is open, or even the vertical drive transistor might be defective.

If Vertical line is present the horizontal section of the yoke transformer might be bad. Now this gets kind is easy in a way, because the yoke would be the sole cause of your problem here (maybe there is some circuitry doing some horizontal coupling check that to) because the horizontal section controls other functions that would also respond if this were a horizontal drive issue. In any event these problems should be checked by a qualified TV technician, I would suggest that you take the TV to a repair shop to have it worked on.

I hope this helps
Thank you,
