    I purchased the tv last year on 4-4-07 it was working perfectly until
    six months later. I turned the tv on to watch it and it just went out
    so i turned it on and off several times and it came back on. Then i was
    fine for several days and then it would do the same exact thing, but
    this time it would not come on for weeks at a time. I unplugged it when
    it would rain and when i would be away for long periods of time. Just
    like the manufacters booklet stated and still nothing so i ended up
    taken it back to bestbuy and it worked perfectly. But i got it home and
    the same thing happened. What is wrong with it? Is it a piece of junk
    or what? Mind you the picture show perfect when i can see it. Help

The veritcal ic is shorted out, replace the ic and check filter in the surrounding area. There is also a diode directly behind the vertical ic that has shown to give problems as well.

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.

Tv screen is black except for 1 horizontal line of color


The line is there because the vertical deflection unit - the one that spreads that line across the entire screen to form the image - has failed. Replacing it is a job for a professional, or at least an experienced amateur, and the parts will be quite difficult to find for such an old tv .

Screen is black except for thin line in middle of screen


The problem is in the vertical section of the main board. Bad capacitors and maybe the vertical IC. If you are not inclined to be a tech you will have to take it to a shop.. I don't know what they may charge but I normally get $69- $89

Thin horizonal line in middle on dark screen


The several thin white lines at the top of the screen is the warning that the vertical output IC is not getting the boost voltage it needs to run correctly. The IC cannot operate for long like that and shorts out inside, which is when the vertical collapses altogether and you get the thin white line through the center of the screen. The good news for your son is that he had nothing to do with that, and it has nothing to do with the cable F connector. The set needs to be serviced by an experienced tech who will restore the boost supply and replace the vertical output IC, and when I do that I charge $75 but techs in your area will vary, so be sure to ask around.

Tv not working


this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!

Blue tint and lines on screen.


Those lines sound like "retrace lines" and several things can cause them. The most common are shorts inside the picture tube and shorted semiconductors in the video driver circuits. They can also be seen if the blue screen voltage is too high or if someone has tampered with the screen voltage control.
