Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Horizontal line across middle

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.

I've had my Toshiba 46RV530U less than 2 years,


Diana, did you ever find a solution? My Toshiba (same model) is about 2 years old and it started getting these 4 horizontal lines spaced pretty far apart and a double image at bottom. When I lightly tap the top of the TV, they went away. But now that is not working. Please let me know. Thanks.

TV: bright line across black screen for several hours.


vertical output ic needs to be resoldered. careful leaving that bright line displayed on the screen as this will cause a permanent phosphor burn into the tube. this can not be corrected once burned unless you replace the tube. mch

White line


This is cauced by a collaspe of the vertical output circuit. Normally a relatively easy/quick fix by a skilled repair tech. If you have a nice quality set that is less than 7 years old, it might be worth fixing, otherwise, you might want to consider getting a new one.

Give a call to a local service shop and tell them what TV you have and the problem and see what they provide for an estimate to repair, it might be worth doing and it might make your decision easier to go buy a new one.

Tube TV - one thin horizontal line of bright light


Vertical defection failure. Common failure. Pretty easy to repair ($50-75?). However, my general rule of thumb is not to waste any more money on TVs over 10 years old. Too much other stuff in there ready to fail as well.

White horizontal, zig-zagging lines


It sounds to me like you're describing the re-trace of the unit. It is repairable, and more so the sooner you get it to the repair facility.

Tv not working


this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!
