Hello
The vertical scan output section of your Symphonic is faulty. This type of fault may occur either by the defect of output IC or its terminal soldering loose contacts or capacitor problems. Just open your TV, and locate the vertical output section, and the IC used there. It will be a small IC usually screwed onto a metal heatsink, to radiate heat out from it. Resoder all the terminal solderings of that IC, by applying a little more solder, without making any solder bridge short in between its terminals and see the effect. If it does not helps, replace the capacitors used in that section. Replace them all with same type. There will be 5 or 6 of them. If this also doesn't helps you, replace the Vertical Output IC, with same type and number. Ok.

For several months we would get bands of lines across our screen. We thought we were experiencing some kind of outside interference as it would come and go. Two days ago the bands began to cover most of...


You're verical output IC is dead, this might because of a leaky capacitor on that section which causes the lines across the screen.
The processor shuts down the unit automatically to avoid further damage to your tube.

Send it to repair shop to isolate the problem. This is fixable.

Thanks for using fixya.
