    Already tried unplugging--no change. Another suggestion, please?

  • WellerFam Sep 10, 2008

    Manual has nothing about adjusting verticals--how would I do this?

  • WellerFam Sep 12, 2008

    Required a repairman, but the diagnosis was correct.

  • WellerFam Sep 12, 2008

    The filters or capacitors needed to be replaced--in this case only 2 of them, but the same problem could have been caused by more. The parts cost $5 apiece, and the process took less than half an hour, but required a repairman.

Hi,

Diagonal (left to right) lines on the top of the screen is an indicator that a capacitor in the vertical section is about to fail. it has lost its capacitance. This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Additionally, pls bear in mind that the Toshiba MW27FP1 is a combination VCR/DVD/TV and chances are there would be a myriad of printed circuit boards, wirings and mechanical assemblies internally.

If you are still considering a DIY and have the service manual/schematic diagram accessible, pls post back.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Turn off the TV and unplug the power for 50 minutes. Turn it on again.

If it is not the verticals, Its the tube inside that's malfunctioning.

My kids have a 13 inch symphonic tv vcr combo not sure what model but it has white lines all across the screen when they try to use this is there anything i can do to fix this problem myself thanks Joe


Not really. This is an internal CRT problem, essentially part of the rods are not firing.it would be more expensive to get a replacement piece because you are essentially buying the main component of the Television to reinsert. Sorry.

The picture is occasionally condensed completely into one thin line across the middle. What does this indicate is happening?


This is a frame collapse. If it sorts itself & then goes like this intermittantly then you will have a poor soldered connection either on the frame IC or surrounding components. If the white line is permanent then most likely the frame IC has failed & would need replaced.

Several dozen thin horizontal white lines across the top of screen, all channels


These beasts are monsters to get into and service without the proper extenstion cables and a service manual. there are no user replaceable parts inside this set. if you know solid state serviceing, you can try and fix it. There is a bad capacitor or capacitors in the vertical sweep circuit and or the vertical output IC is bad also. If you can solder and unsolder go for it. But if you do not or know how the circuit Works Please find a trained tech to assist you with this repair. Good Luck. PS please do not forget to rate this.
