Question about Sylvania Televison & Video
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.
