Question about Televison & Video
When tv is on - picture is only a sliver running horizontally. All sound and other items work. What do you think it is?
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.
