Magnavox TR2512 vertical/horizontal hold problems

I have a Magnavox TR2512. It does not hold Horizontal. I tried to use the adjustments in the back, but they just seem to change colors. Now that I fooled with them, Vertical seems to flip.

This TV is on a screened porch an is exposed to moisture (fog, dew, etc.) as well as cold. It does "crackle" a bit when switched on, so I don't know if that may have affected it.

I had a Sony out there for 10 years until the volume slide went and put this one out there. I have the cover off, but don't see any obvious burned components.

Is this TV worth trying to fix?

Thanks,

Steve

    Thanks. So would a HVT issue still allow the TV to turn on, look OK for some of the time and then not horizontal hold . The hold problem seems to happen when scenes change on the show, for example the newscaster will be talksing and the picture is fine, then it switches to a shot of traffic and it messes up, then goes back to OK again.

Subjecting a TV (or other electronic devices for that matter) to moisture etc is not good for them.

From your description, it sounds like the high voltage transformer (HVT) is arcing. This can potentially destroy the circuit boards, or even cause the set to catch fire.

Fiddling with unrelated controls will just create more problems, but not solve the original one.

As TV's can store potentially lethal voltages (around 25 thousand volts!) long after power is disconnected, if you are not experienced in repairing them, you would be well advised to take it to someone who is.

Magnavox are known for the HVT problem and personally, I wouldn't waste money repairing one.

Hope this helps.

I have 2 lg repair the same trouble vertical horizontal rolling


Vertical or frame rolling indicates adjustment of the frame hold is required or perhaps there is a synchronisation fault.

Breaking of the picture in the horizontal plane is caused by the line hold requiring adjustment though the symptom can be connected with interior or exterior signal problems or perhaps a power supply fault, especially where both the line and frame are affected together.
It is probably a task for an engineer or at least someone with access to the servicing instructions.

TV has a great picture but wont "hold it". Keeps going to a single flat horizontal line across the middle of the screen. Tapping on side of TV used to bring it back but now, nothing. Just a line.


Vertical scan output section circuit fault. Absence of vertical scan causes the single horizontal line on screen. Horizontal scan output section is OK. Contact any service technician to troubleshoot the vertical scan output section circuit. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.Surf the site with patience.http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

My tv will turn on but with white light line then shut off itself


If the line is horizontal (it is a vertical problem) If its a Vertical line (it a horizontal problem) So it could be just a bad solder joint or a component has failed in the horizontal or vertical section. Hope this is helpful.

Magnavox ts2543 with a single horizontal line


Most Probably the Vertical Output IC has failed. If it has, it also could cause resistors that supplt the +/- Voltages to the IC to fail as well.
Hope this helps,

There are vertical and horizontal adjustment in the tv, however it requires removing the rear cover.
If you are unsure of the adjustments rather let a qualified tech service the tv for you.

Picture has a horizontal row


this symptom is caused by a trouble in the integrated circuit of in the vertical oscillator circuit. try to look if your tv has a vertical hold control at the back or inside, if it does not have, u have a problem in the vertical oscillator circuit. by the way, its not the horizontal that u should concentrate into, its the vertical. coz this is a vertical sync problem.
