Pink and green stripes across tv screen

Stripes are sometimes wide, thin, vertical, diagonal, and change in intensity. the longer the tv is on the worse it seems to get.

Dear Sir/madam,

This sounds like convergence trouble.Try doing a autoconvergence in your customer menu.If this doesn't correct the problem,call customer service.Is it under warranty?If not will recommend a authorized service center in your area.If the warranty recently expired,you could possibly get company to pay for a "one time service authorization"for your satisfaction.

thanks
good luck

    If your model has balance button, try using it.
    Try also unplugging TV for one hour or so, if you did not do it before, this will reset TV eeproms in case it is a chip problem.
    More likely you will need to adjust convergence/voltage and ray gun projection adjustment, this procedure will require opening the tv and accessing to adjustment controls, and must be performed by a technician.
    Here is an example of RGB / voltage / convergence adjustement performed on a different model. The whole procedure for your model is illustrated in the Service manual.
    DIY on TVs involve hazards and the risk of causing more damage to your TV, unless you can fix it with the simple procedure listed at start, my suggestion is calling a technician for repair.

Try a "hard reset" first by unplugging the set for 30 seconds. and if no help, you may have a problem with the SMPS power supply, it might have a bad capacitor or two by now. Worth repair if engine is good compared to a flat panel.

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.

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.

Television has no picture


That TV uses the PTK195 chassis, and the fact that you see only a thin line for each color near the bottom of the screen tells me your vertical output IC has stopped working, and is putting a small DC voltage across the yokes. I have seen this caused by a defective vertical output IC and I have also seen vertical problems caused by a small CRT coolant leak which drips onto the main board near the vertical output IC. If you do not have experience servicing the PTK195 chassis than have a qualified tech handle it for you.
