Question about Televison & Video
Our Advent TV is less than 4 years old. Yesterday when we turned it on a bright "lightning bolt" horizontal line, slightly curved appeared and stayed. Is it a fatal flatline? Is it worth being fixed, and if so, where is the closest service center (Killeen Texas area)? -bill taylor
From your description, this is a loss of vertical deflection. There are some failed components in the vertical deflection amplifier. An experienced TV tech should be able to service the set. It would be best to send the set to the authorized service rep for your area.
If you run the set with this fault, the line will be burned in to the screen. It is best to not use the set in this type of condition.
As for the cost, the labour will most likely be the most expensive aspect of servicing your set. Ask for an estimate before accepting the repair.
