Magnavox Color TV Model #27MT3305/17

The tv is about 2 years old. It developed a black stripe across the top of the screen where the picture is gone. Below that 3 inch strip, there is another 1 inch strip that has slight distortion and sometimes upside down picture. In time, the black will creed down to that distorted section and kill that part of the screen as well. Can I fix this problem myself? Help!!! It's Superbowl Sunday!!!! Thanks alot.

    I have the same problem with a 2" black strip across the top that cuts off heads with my Magnavox #27MT3305/17. It's only 3 years old, and I would hate to dump it and but a new one. Does anyone have any solutions on how to fix or how much it would cost?

    My son picked up a free TV (Magnavox 27MT3305/17) someone was getting rid of and left on the side of the road. He picked it up and found out it had the same problem with the black strip at the top of the screen. I did a google search and found this site. I replaced the capacitor #2465, 10 microfarad electrolytic capacitor rated at 160 volts. The problem was corrected. Thanks for the fix. For about $2 we now have a nice TV.

The problem I was having was that the vertical deflection was collapsing on itself from the top. I'm a tech and I am visiting web sites who experience similar problems with the Magnavox 20 MT4405 in hopes of saving them time and money."Starsong" has the right answer. Replace electrolytic capacitor #2465. It is a
10 microfarad electrolytic capacitor rated at 160 volts. Although the existing capacitor appeared good,in circuit and out, the charge-discharge time was flat as compared with a new capacitor. Plus, when the capacitor is in circuit with full voltage applied, the capacitor leaks too much. The cost of the capacitor should be under $2. It should take under a half an hour to replace. Be certain to let your set rest, unplugged, for at least a half hour before attempting to replace this capacitor. There are high voltage present around the crt even after the set is turned off. The high voltages can cause serious bodily harm. I would suggest a tech discharge the anode on the crt with a high voltage probe passing through a volt meter and running to ground. You will need a soldering iron, solder ******, solder, and I like to use a little flux for good adhesion of component to board.

Change cap 2465 by the vertical output transistors. It should be 10uF@160V . Mine was so black I could hardly read it.

Nick,

Your going to need help. That upside down picture sounds like a component failure internally or possibly a set-up switch on the back panel is out of place or dirty.

Check during half-time, for a dirty switch.

I have a Mitsubishi CS 3515R 35" Tube TV. The screen has narrowed at the top and the bottom so only about 2/3 of the horizontal screen has picture. There are black areas at the top and bottom....


There are two issues, the first is a vertical deflection problem, "needs a few parts+an ic" the second problem is intermittent color, "crystal and color processor ic" If the set is close to 10 years old then your money is better spent on a new tv.

JVC TV - BLACK HORIZONAL LINE ACROSS THE TOP OF TV


The vertical circuit is not pulling the top of the picture to the top of the screen (CRT) correctly. Its possible you have a loose wire or device ( after moving ) . If you have vertical agustments on the back , you may be able to adjust the picture taller; if the picture becomes stretched ( non - linear ) then you definately have tv tech only problems. At that point I'd really think twice about a repair and consider a new DTV or HDTV set. If the unit was damaged by a mover , then you may have a claim against them .
