Question about Projection Televisions

Turned on my 31" 14 year old flat screen panasonic tv yesterday and was greeted by a very thin horizontal line of bright light. Sound was there, just no picture. Could this be a picture tube problem?

This is most likely a failure of the vertical IC. Please post the model number of the set so I can provide you with the parts details. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself.

Thanks,
Dan

I have a sony 50 in rear projection. 9 years old


Sounds like the CRT tubes are going out which is fairly common on Sony. Inside the back of the TV there are 6 knobs - 2 for each color...one is for focus - dont touch - the other for brightness...turn down the brightness just a hair untill the lines go away.

No Picture On Screen


it sounds to me like your tube has gone , go to your local tv repair shop and order a new tube its quite cheap to do so and they should be able to get it you quite fast.

Panasonic PT-47X54J Not working


I can't tell you how to fix this set, but I can tell you that its not a "lamp" issue as this doesn't have a lamp. Its a 3 picture tube projection TV. the three tubes are in a red green blue format, and average about $175 for each one, not including the labor to install them. your problem, may not be the tube, but just a power supply problem, but there is a chance it is.

WD-52525 screen is jumping all around with wavy horizontal lines etc.


Good Day;

Keep talking to the factory, it is their product. Best Buy won't replace unless it is deemed not repairable and/or terms of the contract. You purchased the extra warranty because you most have felt that the TV might break down. Well, it did, now use the contract to repair your TV.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

JVC Interiart 32" Digital TV. No longer turns on. Has a thin horizontal line across screen when TV is on. No picture.


The thin line indicates that there is no vertical. This is usually controlled by a single IC (vertical IC). Look for a small flat IC attached to a heat sink with 9-14 pins. It may be marked LA7837 or something similar. Try resoldering the pins first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the IC with a new one.
Keep us posted.

Horizontal grey lines on TV


Sound like you have to turn down the G2 (screen)controls. They are turned up too high.
