Question about Toshiba 36A40 36" TV

1 Answer

Black line problems

I have had this tv since I was young, got it back in the 90s so its really old. Anyway the tv has been dying slowly for the past 2 years. It started with just one line across the top of the tv aout 1 inch wide, just a solid black line. Now it has expanded slowly all the way to about 3 inches wide. I noticed the other day that if I try a vhs and the crackly screen comes on that the lines no longer are there and you can see the entire screen, but as soon as the movie comes on the line (3 inches wide) comes back. SO what could this be.

Some components in the vertical deflection amp have been going out of spec with age.

The set may no longer be worth to spend money to service it because of its age. However, if you wanted to invest the money, the set is serviceable. Considering its age, the CRT may be soft, and there are many other older components that can soon fail.

I would be considering a new set.

JVC TV 27" Black line on top of screen


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.
