I know your problem for sure. If the fine line you are seeing is horizontal, you have a bad capacitor (or cold solder joint) in the "vertical deflection" circuits. Look for four of the largest wires coming from the picture tube and follow them down to the circuit board. These wires do NOT come out of the BACK of the tube, where most of the wires come from, but rather come sort of from the side of the tube. Two of them will go down to the board near the largest component on your board known as the "flyback transformer". Disregard these two and follow the other two. They will go near either two transistors or a vertical deflection chip. The board will normally be labeled "vertical" or vertical deflection near these transistors. There will be two or more capacitors very near these transistors. Look at them on the underside of the board and look for a bad solder joint. Push on the capacitors left and right while observing the underside of the board and you might be able to see the bad joint. If it is a chip instead of transistors, you could still have a bad capacitor or cold solder joint, but in most cases if it's a chip, then the chip is bad. Since, however, you can tap on the tv and make it work temporarily, this tells me that you probably have two vertical deflection transistors with associated capacitors. If the caps are good and no cold joints, then replace the transistors. This part of your tv is what pulls the electron beam up and down vertically and is thus called the vertical deflection circuits. With no vertical deflection, then the beam just moves left and right and never moves up and down. The picture is still there, but it is contained inside the fine line where of course you cannot see it. The parts in this circuit are not expensive at all. Keever

The picture just suddenly disapeared on our tv while we were watching it. There's sound but no visible image.


check the video cable, try replace the cable or interchange it , if the picture ok but sound become missing then the cables is damaged. Or check the large IC resolder the leads.

There are bad solder connections on the vertical IC. This is a small flat IC attached to a heat sink. It should have about 9-11 pins and may be marked LA7837 or something similar. Resolder the pins on this IC and that should resolve the problem.

This problem sounds like a short inside the picture tube itself unless a driver transistor failed that drives the red gun in the CRT. You may have to take it to an authorized repair facility if the picture tube is still in warranty.
