Hi paquetor,

Based on your post/description, I can only suspect a Vertical failure in your TV. This problem is pretty common and is relatively easy to repair. Often, this involves replacing the Vertical IC which is not that expensive. Basic knowledge of electronic circuitry and components, use of a soldering iron and an electronics part shop near you is all that is required. Of course standard safety precautions apply when working with HV such as in your TV.

There are instances that the coupling capacitor also goes bad. This is also normal after some time due to heat buildup. Being not that expensive (a couple of dollars), it may also be worth your while to similarly replace while the set is open. This capacitor would be relatively bigger than the others in the vertical circuit and is commonly located physically near the vertical IC.

Should you not be comfortable performing a do-it-yourself, perhaps you may need to seek the services of a qualified professional.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

21" sony tv horizontal amp short what is the


Hi,
The most common cause of this symptom, by far, is the loss of vertical deflection amplifier. It usually requires the replacement of the vertical output transistor or some component associated with it. The cost of repair would run around $150 to $200 depending on the exact parts replacement and the shop that does the work.

i hope this will be help full to you .
goodluck

I have the same TV built in 99. My problem is similar but the vertical hold gives out when the tv warms up about 5 minutes. I will attempt to locate the vertical hold circuit and replace any parts I suspects may be the problem. I suspect a cap is leaking or transitor around IC700 is degrading when warm.

Panasonic PT-51HX43G no picture


You have a loss of horizontal deflection. It is a possibility that you have burned that line down one or more of the CRT's. The repair wil take the help of an expert since the horizontal section puts out signals of 1200 volts or more.

TV picture problems


this modle has a bad solder connection near the horizontal o/p transistor that causes the picture to fade in & out.the bad solder connection is on a small coil. the coil winding is typically red. looking at the back of the tv, the flyback has the rid wire going to the top of the tube, the horizontal o/p transistor is to the left & in font of the flyback, it's attached to an aluminum heatsink. directly in font of this heatsink is the coiul you are looking for, it should have a location id of L14XXX or L4XXX if I remember corectly. good luck.
