Hi,

Initially I would suspect a problem in the Vertical section of the TV. This could either be the capacitor or the IC itself. In some instances, there are no component failures but rather cold solder joints.

Based on your post/description of :...Once in awhile picture returns to normal...", I am more inclined to think that it is a case of cold solder. which can easily be corrected by reapplying heat on the IC pins or the other associated/nearby components with the use of a soldering iron. Care must be exercised since TV units still pack high voltages even when off and unplug.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Banging made it worked just confirms the cold solder connection. Soon as the unit runs for some time and heats up, problem will recur.

    Nonetheless, am glad that it works.

    Cheers.

Black screen with a line of the picture running


The vertical sweep generator is dead. The circuit that controls the lines being drawn from top to bottom has malfunctioned or died. This not something you can fix, you will need a professional.

Picture Shortens, Converges, eventually the set shuts off - $50 for Correct Solution


Open the TV amd turn it on in a position you can see the picture, possibly through a mirror. Now gently tap all of the metal heat sinks on the circuit board until you find the one that is sensitive it will have a small chip mounted vertically on it, with probably like 7-10 pins. The number on the chip will most likely be an "LA****" number. Now turn the circuit board (UNPLUG FIRST) over and resolder the pins. This is your problem 99% of the time. Be very careful there is High Voltage inside this TV.

The main cause of this problem is cracked solder joints on the vertical output IC. Re-flowing the solder should take care of it. Sometimes a capacitor (normally against the heat sink containing the vertical output) will cause this, but, it usually has a different symptom. The price of repair will normally run, depending on where you live, $100.00 to $130.00. It's a small job and is done quickly. Hope this helps.
