Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

On many, but not all, dvds the tv picture has four rows of short white lines, intermittently. The dvds play perfectly on other equipment. Looks something like this: - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I have played, without problem, the dvds on the same model dvd (sony) player on a different tv. The problem is possibly with the tv (but the lines do not appear during tv reception and not on playing some dvds). Any ideas?

There could be some interference getting into the DVD video source when playing the DVDs.
What is the model of TV that gives you those lines?
What type of cables are you using?

If the issue shows only on the other TV, possible that that TV's input port is faulty

How to repair and locate vertical ic on apex tv


See attached photo of a typical chip--usually one row of pins (single in line package) and has the Generic part number right on the front--with the number on yours you can Google a pin out which will show what pins are voltage in, output etc.

Some are ones with two rows of pins staggered and offset.

Locate it also by looking for it to be attached to a metal plate for cooling--also when replacing it the white heat transfer grease on the back of it must be replaced with fresh grease--the white heat sink kind used in computers and electronic equipment of all kinds.

Not a bad idea if you had foldover on top of picture to look at the filter caps right around the chip--one will be a feedback cap--usually a 220uf or higher (uf is microfarad and the cap will have two pins with one a plus and the other a negative marked on them--if that cap is open the set will have nearly a full picture but have folded over lines at top of screen---if that fails it shortly gets the chip.

This is a typical one and yours will likely differ in the number of pins--7-13 pins is normal.

Bring it back to the place of purchase since the item is under warranty, this is a manufacture defect and you are in your perfect right to have a replacement.

White flickering line across top of screen


Set the screen format using your TV's menu. Do not set the format of the screen using your provider's receiver. I had this prob with a few channels with a dish provider when I set the format with the remote from the dish provider. I picked up the TV's remote, went into the menu, set the format, problem fixed.

Sony rdr vx410 dvd player playing some dvds in black and white


  • DVD's are standard definition video sources. Number of lines output is 576 lines, whereas your HD TV set has 720 or 1080 lines. This difference may result in a poorer image. However some DVD players are able to “upscale” picture to obtain a very good picture. Check if your DVD player has the following connectors: YUV, DVI or HDMI. For more information, refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • Some HDMI or DVI featured DVD players also have an internal processor that can upscale pictures from a DVD to 720 or 1080 lines to provide an excellent picture from a standard definition disc to your HD TV set. Those settings are available from the setup menu of your DVD player. Please refer to the instruction manual of your DVD player.

  • If your DVD player does not have those connectors and only has a SCART connector, or S-VIDEO, or composite, there is not much to do to improve the picture quality. Just make sure that you are not using the cheapest cables and that the picture settings of your TV set are correctly adjusted.

  • Some high end TV sets have a picture improvement engine that can soften a noisy image. Make sure that it is activated from the setup menu of your TV set. Please refer to the instruction manual of your TV set.

  • If people and objects have weird white outlines around them. This may suggest that your TV sharpness is set too high. Make the correct sharpness adjustments from the setup menu of your TV set.

  • Make sure you use good quality cables and that your cables are not too long (less than 5 meters long).

Sound but no picture


A white like across the screen means that the vertical circuit has stopped working. Look for a small fuse that looks like a resistor near the vertical output IC, replace that fuse if open and resolder the pins on the vertical output IC.
