Question about Toshiba 32A33 32" TV
We have the dreaded horizontal line on our screen. I've read some of the other posts on this matter and wanted to know if it's worth repairing. I don't have any experience with this stuff and I'd only screw it up more if I tried to do it.
As long as everyone agrees that the horizontal line is some vertical failure or capacitor problem, I think that is what has happened.
BTW, it's actually a 32A14 tv set, not a 32A33 set.
This symptom is characterized by a thin horizontal line in the middle of the screen. This symptom is caused by the absence of the deflection sawtooth current in the horizontal deflection coil.
The trouble is easily isolated by a continuity test and by checking the most likely defective components such as A)open vertical linearity compensation transformer, B) open capacitor and C) open horizontal deflection coil.
Be sure to decrease the brightness first before trouble-shooting if the line is very bright,as it burn the phosphor screen..
Hope this may help;
