Verticle hold transistor?

My Symphonic Model number WF2702 has only a thin white line across the middle of the screen. I am thinking it's something in the verticle hold module?

Re: verticle hold transistor?

The vertical hold keeps a normal picture from rolling either up or down. You don't have a normal picture (raster) here.

The problem you are having is a vertical deflection problem. The screen is being compressed to a thin white line. It's probably a defective vertical output module or transistor. This part is not too expensive. Less likely would be a vertical deflection coil, which would be more expensive because its usually glued to the picture tube and harder to replace.

Good Luck!

Samsung pn51d440a5d thin black horizontal lines across complete screen,2 to 3 inches apart,replaced y sustain and y buffer pcb

These lines a are technically called as 'vertical retrace' lines. There will be thin white horizontal lines, at about 1" apart, all around the screen. Even though, you've decreased the brightness and contrast to its minimum, these line will be there. There are many reasons for this fault. If the screen voltage is more than normal, or the supply voltage to video output transistors are less than normal [due to faulty smoothing capacitor], this fault can occur. If you're sound in electronics, check this link. It has details about how to check for this fault.
Pull up previous posts by its left sidebar, or type in the brand name and model number to of your set, to its search box, and press 'Enter' or view it in Mosaic / Timeslide option.

Sears 32 inch bright horisantal line across screen maybe 1/4 in rest of screen black have sound

Hi, bronco, my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. This could be the horizontal output transistor, also called HOT. It also could be cold solder joints that need to be resoldered where they have lost connection or contact. This is a easy fix. If you have some soldering experience. Remove the back from the TV, the HOT is located on a flat aluminum piece. It will be a three leg (pin) transistor with a screw at the top of it. Make sure the TV is unplugged, slide the circuit board out, on most boards will be held in place with screws. With the board solder side-up and with a desoldering iron, remove it and the screw. You can order parts here . Give them the number off the transistor. You will need some heat sink compound when replacing the transistor to the shield. Thanks for choosing FixYa. Good luck.......John

No audio and have a thin white verticle line across tv

Always suspect a bad EEprom...very common on this TV! See a tech, he will have to select one of six eeproms to fix this!

Symphonic WF 2702 has sound but no picture. The

This could be a capacitor if your lucky but can also be the horizontal transistor. The repair could cost you between 60$ and 150$
My opinion; it's not worth it.

Thin horizonal line in middle on dark screen

The several thin white lines at the top of the screen is the warning that the vertical output IC is not getting the boost voltage it needs to run correctly. The IC cannot operate for long like that and shorts out inside, which is when the vertical collapses altogether and you get the thin white line through the center of the screen. The good news for your son is that he had nothing to do with that, and it has nothing to do with the cable F connector. The set needs to be serviced by an experienced tech who will restore the boost supply and replace the vertical output IC, and when I do that I charge $75 but techs in your area will vary, so be sure to ask around.

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!

Red Line across Screen

sounds like you have a vertical sweep problem. Where the fault lies cpuld be the vertical output IC the verticle b+ feed, could be the capacitors in the vertical circuit?? Your gonna need to troubleshoot thr vrtical circuit if your not a tech thin my advise is to take the set to a pro for sn est. Good Luck
