Re: Hi it's me again the gal who dropped her tv
Yes, you should still have sound, providing that you have an antenna
connected and are tuned to a channel. If you have a vcr or dvd player
to hook up to it try that and see if you have sound.
No sound while viewing a tuned in channel or via a vcr/dvd player is
not a good sign. It may have cracked the PCB inside the tv. A cracked
PCB, depending on the severity, can also be repaired.
You really won't know the severity of any internal damage until it is opened up and checked over.
Is the line on the screen Horizontal (left to right) or Vertical (up
and down) and is it centered on the screen? A vertical line would
indicate that it may be a cracked PCB (Printed Circuit Board).

your television is going to need an internal repair. most likely in the power supply of the television. it would be best to unplug the television until it can be repaired. If you would like to repair the television yourself then please use our premium service so an expert can walk you through it. Or you can search for a local repair service using our local repair search engine.
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.
The faint white lines at the top of the screen is the warning that the pump-up capacitor in the vertical output circuit is going bad and the output itself is about to short out. When the TV stops working, the vertical output IC has finally shorted out. Replacing the vertical output IC, the pump-up capacitor and possibly a small value resistor next to the flyback (B+ for the v-out) should bring the set back to life.
