Question about Toshiba 32AFX61 32" TV

1 Answer

Green picture with horizontal green lines...

I've been noticing over the past few months that my screen has started turning green, and has horizontal thin green lines. The thin green lines are more obvious when you turn the channel.

Now if I am watching the all martians netwrok then things are great, however I do enjoy other channels and the green is killing me?

So do I need a new TV or is there a simple fix?

Thanks for your help.

John

    If this gets posted twice then my apologies. My wireless lost connection and I don't think it went through.



    So to answer the first part of the question, my TV is not older than 8 years, but also not newer than 6.



    As of very recently my TV has been having brown outs. Not a colour thing, but the TV looks like it is going to shut off but then comes back to its full bright green colour. Now when I say green I do have other colours that show up, but the overwhelming colour is a sick shade of green.



    A malfunctioning ray gun?? Is that a martian shot or a real thing?



    I wouldn't have the slightest idea how to solder something, never mind figuring out the circuitry? Now unless you are telling me that a monkey can do it, I think that I should consider taking this in? Of course it does weigh more than the combined weight of my fridge and stove!?!



    Anyway I will keep you posted.



    Thanks again,



    John

    My green lines appear approximately two minutes after turning on the set. The lines become darker green with a lighter green screen. Then the tv acts as if it is trying to correct the problem by going through picture gyrations. Then the normal picture snaps on and every thing is OK. Today, it did not correct until I unplugged the set and tried again. It is getting worse.



    Appreciate you thoughts.

John,

First, Id like to know how old is your unit? Also, the lines indicates in issue with regards to the lifespan of your tube. The dominant green color has something to do with a malfunctioning ray gun of your tube. However, i had encounter a unit that was resolved by simply resoldering the circuitry of same problem.
Why dont you try to resolder the board first.

Response is highly appreciated.

Hello: Have you tried to adjust you Green Screen control on the focus block assembly. located behind the front panel assembly. Here is a solution that might help you, turn off the green by turning off this control, make sure u look at the block and make sure you are not turning the green focus knob instead of scrn crl. Turning the control slowly to the left the retrace lines should disappear as the green video darkens. Then turn the control slowly to the right just until the retrace lines reappear, then turn back slowly left just until the lines go away. If the screen is Blanking on green tube only then you have a video blanking problem on the main signal board. Or possibly a IK bias problem. It is also possible that the green CRT is defective. The FBT is not bad because the screens are lighting up indicating you have high voltageand heater voltage which is derived from one of the secondary windings of the FB. If it is a Blanking problem i would look into replacing the A Board assembly.

Unfortunately there isn't any way to repair your tv as the magnet has distorted the tube that is in the tv and with CRT becoming obsolete the repair is likely to be very costly so probably your chaepest option is to buy a new tv .

Green screen with almost horizontal zigzag lines


Is good that you hit it and it reacts,very likely you have loose conections in different places but for the distorted picture you need to check the horizontal driver transformer and flyback after that is corrected you need to check the complete chassis for loose conections.Take your time.Good luck.
