If it has a white line across the middle then it is probably repairable.
If the screen was cracked it could, but probably wouldn't work at all, not even a white line. The white line indicates that the vertical deflection IC has failed. Generally these IC are inexpensive and should only take an hour, if that, to replace. A good technitian should be able to repair it at a reasonable cost as well as check it over for other common problem areas.

I turned my television on then it made the tv frame made a noise!and now the screen is black except for this thin line across the middle of the screen which is display the picture


Most likely the vertical oscillator circuit has failed. As CRT televisions have gone the way of the dinosaur, my advice to you is to give a fond adieu and invest in a new TV.

Growing Black Spots on Insignia LCD Flat Screen


Hi,

Black dots/spots on an LCD panel display indicates either a dead pixel or a stuck pixel. Alternately, if you press lightly on the black spots and they go bigger/darker, then in some instances, it could be that the frame holding the display has been slightly warped when too strong a pressure was applied when it was being cleaned. Should this be the case then corrective measure would be to disassemble and flatten whatever area was dented. Some have reported success with the use of a suction cup. Perhaps this, this or this might be interest you.

If the unit is still under warranty, please try discussing your concern with your dealer. Though a few small spots are an acceptable norm. Alternately and if the warranty has lapsed, there are companies online that offer LCD replacement kits or will replace/fix your LCD and it would cost you less than the cost of a new screen or TV.

Other than the above, am afraid that your options are rather limited.

Hope this be of initial 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.

My tv fell and I think the sensor is ruined. The remote now won't work. The plastic isn't broke, but I think sensor is broke as the tv fell on it's face.


most of the time, the circuit board cracks around the remote sensor, when there is a fall like this. the TV will have to be taken apart to check this. Do you have that capability?

Dropped sony tv trinitron face down, ti goes to standby


You have a cracked board inside the TV. The biggest weight creating the crack would probably be the Flyback transformer. And you may have done damage to the tube internally..the shadow mask perhaps? The yoke or the neck of the tube is broken.....Could be a lot of things or minor...just have to check with a tech!

If the glass picture tube is cracked it is not repairable. In some cases it would be possible that the tv would still work if it has a cracked glass but it would not be advisable to use it as it could allow x-ray radiation to escape. The tube is a vacuum and a cracked tube would lose it's vacuum (**** air inside) and cause it to instantly burn out when turned on. Sorry :(

Sony KV 20S40 20" tv flutters, reduces in size and then shuts off


The set most probably has cracked solder joints in one of the deflection circuits, which is pretty common. The picture tube and major components are fine. A good tech can quickly resolder the main board and that should not cost too much. If your set came into my shop I would charge about $50 but ask around, the shops in your area will vary.

Television has audio but a black screen


Bad technicians always say picture tube problem when the TV has black screen with sound. This a false statement and in some cases techniciacns use this to scare the owner or the charge a hefty amount. The truth is that picture tube outlast most component in the TV. If it will fail, it is gradual like the colors will fade or one or several color will be missing. This condition is the degration of the filament in the gun (CRT tv has three -Red, green , blue) I started to repair TV in the early 80's and only in one occasion that the Tube fail and it is a crack in the neck. For black screen with sound, the most common cause is the HV supply problem / Horizontal section. This can be caused by many things, like flyback transformer failure, horizontal outout transistor, horizontal drive, etc. For the cost-depends on where you are, in some countries labor is dirt cheap, in other ountries the parts are expensive.
