These are retrace lines. This may be a fault in the blanking circuits. On some occasions a weak CRT can also cause blanking lines to show.

This is something you would not be able to service yourself. I would suggest to have an estimate done on the TV set for you to decide if it should be serviced or not.

My LTV-32w6 westinghouse powers on & has sound but displays black screen with very faint colored vertical lines. It shows like this for about 1min before it goes into standby mode & the blue power...


Depends on what is causing it...

Vertical bands of faint black are generally caused by filtering capacitors and can be found in the power supply or the 5 volt supply or even the Video processing circuit...it is not an easy task to identify the source of Video hum bars.....we also call them Jailbars.

Another problem seen is faint black lines caused by the TV set being in 4:3 mode all the time....right at the edge of where the picture ends and the black pillars begin, we see a faint black line that never goes away and is normally seen with a full screen....

That is actually image retention, but it's caused by the crystals that create the picture becoming polarized or ionized over a very long period of time....and it's not easy to DE-Polarize them !

But there are some theories out on how to do that....
Certain people suggest running the TV overnight with an ALL-WHITE picture and some suggest an ALL BLACK PICTURE...and some suggest alternating between both !!

Now, a black picture is easy to make, you just deactivate the Video Mute (blue screen) and set it to an unused Video INPUT overnight....

About the only way to make a white screen is to use the USB port for pictures and take a very bright outdoor shot of a piece of white paper that hopefully is out of focus too....That would create an all-white picture that you can plug into your TV set overnight....

Now if you decide to try this, deactivate any displays on your TV set...all you do is press the display button until the Video and/or USB input numbers disappear....

Next day , set it back to normal TV and see if it's gone or if it's REDUCED....try it again if needed, or try the exact opposite if you see NO RESULTS....

Sony KP-57WV700


Hi. It seems that the g2 voltage of the picture tube is too high, resulting in a white screen, often with white horizontal lines. The g2 (= second grid) voltage is derived from the flyback high voltage. The voltage divider is mostly integrated in the flyback trafo housing.(including the adjustment knobs). A failure in this divider may lead to this defect. The static you hear may come from sparking in the divider. The flyback trafo is soldered onto the main printed cirrcuit board. Sometimes, one of the pins sits loose in the soldering pads.
Turn on the set and observe for any sparking around the entire flyback circuitry, and, or the flyback trafo itself
The screen turns black after a while, as a too high beamcurrent is detected. The set disables the flyback. Stand-by blinks meaning that there is a fault condition.
Be carefull with the high voltages. The flyback voltage is very high (20-30 Kilovolts !) and may be lethal !!

White lines in tv whats the problem??????????????


Check the cable that you are using. If it's a "single" shielded cable, it maybe letting in "air" frequencies, like you have an antenea hooked to your TV. Especially if you live in a city that has several Tv stations near you. The cable could be to old and has breaks in it, or not grounded properly.

RCA 32V420T 32" TV


This RCA set uses the CTC187BD chassis. Look on the back of the set and to the right of the cable connector you will see 2 controls sticking out, one on top of the other. The top control is for focus and the bottom one is screen, or overall brightness. If these controls have been turned clockwise then you will have a bright, fuzzy picture with white lines (retrace lines) through it. Tune in a channel with white letters on the screen and turn the top (focus) control until the letters are crisp and sharp. Go into the menu and turn the contrast and brightness all the way down, and then turn the bottom control (screen) until you can just see the picture, just above the point where the picture is too dark to see. Go back into the menu and reset the contrast and brightness and the picture will be back to perfect.

Tv showing blue screen with flyback lines sound ok


Flyback lines? Is the picture all white with no brightness control with faint horizontal faint lines? If this is what you are saying, the screen voltage could be bad, and if thats the case, the picture tube or the flyback itself could be bad. You could also have a bad connection on the crt socket
