Picture on older TV is streched

We have an older Tosiba TV , the picture is now streched . I know this sounds funny but if you watch people on the screen they look like they all have cone heads and short legs! What would need to be fixed and roughly how much would it cost?

    Thank You for the information. I live in Ontario Canada so are you saying it would cost only $2.00 in US funds to fix ?

Hi,

Based on your post/description, sounds like a vertical linearity problem. Assuming that it is a CRT type TV (not LCD or Plasma), then this would involve either the vertical IC and/or the capacitor very close to it. Of the two, I would suspect more the capacitor due to age and they tend to loose functionality because of heat over time.

Perhaps if you can post back your general location, there are techs who might be closer to and can quote you more realistically. Just to give you an idea, the capacitor would cost something like PhP 100 in my area (Philippines) that would roughly be 2USD.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    At least the over the counter cost of a generic replacement (of the same specs) of a capacitor. The service fee is another thing plus other fees if the unit is to be done at your place.

    I will post your general location and this post on to the Lounge where techs from Ontario Canada would see and thereafter try to get in touch with you.

    Cheers.

Why my toshiba 40H80 has no picture only sound


Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

My tv is called a mirai or something. About an 1 hour ago tonight, i was watching britain's got talent while i was putting things away then when i turned my back to look at my tv all of a sudden my tv went...


If you have sound,than a bad ground may have occured on the horizontal transformer or the vertical IC. These will have to be resoldered. In the event the vertical IC is resoldered you should have the capacitors immediately near this IC checked and replaced as necessary! I would imagine you are speaking about the older picture tube type TV. This info is for most tube type TVs. Hope this will help! Thanks for asking!

Toshiba 32a43 32' picture garbled mess


If you can get the tv to display the blue blackground(usually happens when there is no antenna or cable feed to tv) check to see if the whole screen is a solid blue, if it shows discolored areas around the screen then you might have to "demag" the screen. See if you can rent a demad coil from a tv shop and with tv on turn the coil in circular movements all over the front of screen till blue is solid.good luck!

Streched screeen!


I see more of this out in the field everyday. If you have a cable box or satelite receiver, then look for a format change on it. Usually in that components menu. If, you still cannot find the answer, reply back with the type of unit, if any, that control the channel on the set. I hope this helps.
