Black screen with colorful line going horizontally through the middle of the screen

My 8 year old Toshiba has recently started to black out with only a colorful line going horizontally through the length of the screen. Can someone please help me with this?

Thank you!

Problem in the vertical circuitry.
If you have the know-how, check for "cold-solder" joints around vertical i.c.
Also, bad electrolytic caps.
Voltages ok?
Resistor values ok?
Replace I.C.

Don't tell me the yoke wires were off or gnawed thru by a roach!

Tv screen is black except for 1 horizontal line of color


The line is there because the vertical deflection unit - the one that spreads that line across the entire screen to form the image - has failed. Replacing it is a job for a professional, or at least an experienced amateur, and the parts will be quite difficult to find for such an old tv .

It is my guess that you have some intermitent solder connections in the Vertical output circuit.

Screen is black except for thin line in middle of screen


The problem is in the vertical section of the main board. Bad capacitors and maybe the vertical IC. If you are not inclined to be a tech you will have to take it to a shop.. I don't know what they may charge but I normally get $69- $89

No picture no sound


Did you mean the picture is collapsed only in the middle horizontally(white line appears on the middle part of the screen)?
If that is the case, maybe vertical IC failed or loose connection.

Horizontal Line through middle of TV screen


This is usually a bad elect capasitor or a bad solder connection on the vertical IC, The capasitors will be close to the vert chip..Sometimes you can clear problem with a light tap on the TV, if so then suspect bad solder.

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

Toshiba tv problem


This looks like a problem either with the powers supply to the video signal processor and with thr power supply to the horizontal section (lack of complete horizontal deflection. This was caused by the voltage and current spikes of the power coming back on rapidly. Now to fix this problem involves coming into contact with hazardous voltages, I would suggest that you not attempt this repair on your own if you do not have a background in electronics. Please take this set to a qualified electronics repair shop

Black screen, high pitched squeal


A set that has only a 1/2 inch bright line through the middle of the picture, from left to right, has a vertical output IC that is not working correctly. If the 1/2 inch line is in the middle but going up and down, then the horizontal yoke circuit has stopped working. These are problems which should be looked at by a qualified tech, but if the set was purchased 6 months ago then it should still be under the manufacturer's warranty.
