Hi Kathy,

If you are referring to a single bright line left to right, then I would suspect that your TV have a vertical output failure. Depending on the particular model, this could be a single IC or a transistor pair. This is relatively an easy job and component replacement should be readily available. Since the unit will be opened for confirmatory diagnosis and eventually parts replacement, may I also suggest that you ask the service personnel who's going to do the job to likewise replace the vertical capacitor. They have a tendency to dry out after some time. It is the biggest of the lot (of capacitors in the vertical section). Parts cost would also be relatively low.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My 32inch tv turns on but the picture is wired.


On a 32 inch it may not be worth fixing--not going to be a reset etc--base decision on fact that possible repair should not exceed used value of set--which in my view it likely will.

Lines across the top of screen


If this is a picture tube set (not a thin screen), then you have a bad electrolytic capacitor in the vertical circuit. Just about all picture tube sets that I've worked on that get lines at the top was caused by a bad or leaky cap and is a common problem w/ most sets. There's a very slim chance it could be the vertical ic but normally when it goes bad you will have nothing but a thin white line running across the center of the screen from left to right. If it's just a capacitor, the part would only cost a couple of dollars at most, however there's no way I can tell you exactly which one to change w/ out looking in the set. A repair shop would probably get between $30-$50 to fix it. If you can give me the model number of the tv, I can see if I can you some more info.

The colour has gone on all channels - analogue and digital. The set is 3 years old HD Phillips the digital receiver is also defective as it keeps switching channels


Probably not the TV as for it to work in black and white the colour has to work. Possibly a cabling issue between digital receiver and TV

My philips ts2554 tv keeps turning off need tech help.


Your power supply is gone. There is only one option. Sell it for scrap and get a new TV. They don't make parts for this TV anymore. Phillips/Magnovox has discontinued it and all parts.

What type of indoor antenna work best with this unit?cobytv/tf-tv


A simple pair of rabbit ears (standard dipole antenna) should do the trick. You will have to set the source input to NTSC/ATSC and connect the antenna to either the analog or digital F- connector inputs if you use a RF splitter you can use one anatenna for both inputs. In any event try this first.

Thank you,
