Tube TV - one thin horizontal line of bright light

Hi,

I have a JVC 26" tube TV, about 10 years old. The only picture I get is one thin horizontal band of obnoxiously bright light about 1cm wide across the centre of the screen.

Is the set done? Tube shot? Repairable at a reasonable cost?

Thx.

    Thin horizontal line of bright light with some color, at times. TV is 8 1/2 yrs old. Is it worth repairing?

    i too suffer from tv with thin line. it was working fine until, i added new apex convertor box. i tried it with out box and it gives the same results. it some times shows full screen picture; than at random goes to thin line then back to full screen. when i turn on tv the next day it goes to the thin line on screen for hours. (it makes a great radio)

Vertical defection failure. Common failure. Pretty easy to repair ($50-75?). However, my general rule of thumb is not to waste any more money on TVs over 10 years old. Too much other stuff in there ready to fail as well.

Turn on pic turns red with thin bright red horizontal lines


Sorry to say, but that's usually the sign of a bad picture tube. One of the elements inside the tube shorts and you see the picture you describe, and the set shuts down due to high voltages getting to places it shouldn't. There's no solution except picture tube replacement, and that is uneconomical. You're better off replacing the TV when the tube goes bad.

No Picture On Screen


it sounds to me like your tube has gone , go to your local tv repair shop and order a new tube its quite cheap to do so and they should be able to get it you quite fast.

TV: bright line across black screen for several hours.


vertical output ic needs to be resoldered. careful leaving that bright line displayed on the screen as this will cause a permanent phosphor burn into the tube. this can not be corrected once burned unless you replace the tube. mch

Is my picture tube going?


Hi there yes this is a common problem with old tube tv's and yes eventually stuff seems to break down there is not alot you can really do about it to be honest ...my suggestion is that this is lifes way of saying upgrade ...this tv has done well ....if your looking to upgrade i would suggest going to a Samsung LA26C450 as a replacement television or if you are not so much a fan then a KLV26BX300 as a new option ,

Turned on my 31" 14 year old flat screen panasonic tv yesterday and was greeted by a very thin horizontal line of bright light. Sound was there, just no picture. Could this be a picture tube problem?


This is most likely a failure of the vertical IC. Please post the model number of the set so I can provide you with the parts details. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself.

Thanks,
Dan

If the horizontal lines going through the picture are fine white lines, then I would suspect the picture tube as having a heater to cathode short or some other problem. Since some sets have had a 3 year warranty on the picture tube, you may be lucky unless the labor to replace the tube is more than the set is worth. Sanyo is usually not a good name in consumer electronics anymore, so if you're looking for a replacement I would look elsewhere.

Tv not working


this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!
