JVC TV 27" Black line on top of screen

Hi all, I hope someone can give some guidance.  I have a 27" JVC TV Model AV-27D302.  It is about 3 years old.  A black line has appeared across the top of the screen.  The line is about 1 - 1 1/2" thick.  Under the black line is a double image - the top of the screen inverted on top of the regular picture (sorry if this sounds confusing.  It is hard to describe in words!).  I have looked in the manuals, but did not find anything in the troubleshooting section that helped.  I looked in the back of the TV - no horizontal or vertical control buttons to adjust. I disconnected the cable line and the problem is still there, so it is not my cable signal.   Any suggestions before I carry it to a service center? Thanks,   Brendan Just as a note before = I dont know what number my tv is, its a Toshiba from around 1995 and its about 30 inches, I couldnt find a catagory for it) My TV has been dying slowly for the past few months. It started with just one line at the top of the screen all the way across the top, that was about an inch wide. Solid black and it doesnt change, but recently it has been getting bigger and is now about 3 inches wide. I noticed the other day that if I swap to a VHS tape and the grey/black crackly screen ( that comes on before you put the movie in) comes on then the lines are gone and the whole screen is crackly, but as soon as you put a movie in then the line comes back. It cant be the tube or the actual color things in the screen because the crackly screen is fine. So what would be the answer?

This is for the original problem.. Not the second post.

It's a problem in the horizontal deflection circuit. The parts will be available, but you will be in for some daignostic repairs also to find out why it failing or if it has failed on it's own.
There should be a few caps near the IC (an LA7840) that could also be causing the problem. Click the link, it will make it easier to locate the part inside.

This is the kind of repair best left to a TV tech, but get it done now and it won't cost anywhere near as much as it will later.

This is caused by a bad capacitor in the vertical circuit. If you can solder, you may be able to resolve this yourself. If you wish to attempt this repair, please update this and I will provide additional details and instructions.

JVC TV - BLACK HORIZONAL LINE ACROSS THE TOP OF TV


The vertical circuit is not pulling the top of the picture to the top of the screen (CRT) correctly. Its possible you have a loose wire or device ( after moving ) . If you have vertical agustments on the back , you may be able to adjust the picture taller; if the picture becomes stretched ( non - linear ) then you definately have tv tech only problems. At that point I'd really think twice about a repair and consider a new DTV or HDTV set. If the unit was damaged by a mover , then you may have a claim against them .

civilman, the first set has either no high voltage or is collapsed vertically, until someone checks for high voltage there is no concrete answer, the AV27730 is vertical collapse from your description, either the voltage to the vertical IC is missing or the vertical IC has failed, not a big deal cost-wise, hope this answers your questions, if not e-mail me back, good luck, BMW Rider

Yes you could look for the capacitor that is leaky, probably in the 200v line, or you could just open back and turn up G2 screen control on the Flyback. You have Screen and Focus on this black transformer with a long anode lead going to the picture tube of set. Becareful, High Voltage!

I'll bet you have vertical output IC with some pins not soldered. This IC ( integrated circuit) is a "chip" that makes the picture fill out from top to bottom. After a period of time heat will cause the pins to crack loose on the circuit board. You need to have a tech check it for you. Stargazer

One thing you should not do with electronic devices which have a start up proceedure is to turn the power off, and then on again without a wait of about five minutes. Some equipment manuals warn you about this, and specify a longer period. The start-up has to have time to reset. It will be more likely to reset if you do not leave it on standby, and even unplug it. In your TVs case you need to describe the distorted picture as it may give a clue to a fault, or incorrect start-up. The horizontal line indicates the frame timebase had stopped working. No picture could be a fuse blown inside the set, or a timed cutout which may reset after a time. Try after several hours to see if it comes on. If it is just the frame timebase (vertical) it is worth repairing.
