Question about Televison & Video
I have a 26" Sanyo TV. Its about 9 years old. As I was watching, the screen shrunk to a 1/4 line across the middle of the screen. What might this be and is it worth fixing?
The vertical IC either has bad connections on it or hit has failed completely. These are common ICs and are available for about $12-$20. If you can solder, you should be able to repair this yourself. Open up the back and look for a small flat IC with about 11 pins attached to a heat sink. It will be marked LA7837 or something similar. Try resoldering the pins first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the IC. If you have any question about whether or not you have the correct part, post the marking here and I'll confirm the part.
Keep us posted.
