    Thanks for replying. I'm ok with electronics work. As the picture originally collapsed to a vertical line, doesn't that mean the horizontal scan has failed?
    I added a comment earlier but not sure whether it got lost.

    Quasar SP3219V. My toddler has been facinated by by the controls on the TV. Is it possible that I could have sound and no picture from a changed setting, or is this a deeper problem?

Simple problem. In all likelihood, The Vertical Output IC has failed. It will be TDA 8177. Replace. Or, it could also be that the Supply to that IC has failed. Unless you are competent in Solid State repairs, do not try this by yourself. get a professional Technician to have a look.IC should not cost more than 15-20$ pluch Tecnician fees.

    Oops! Sorry, my apologies. Yes you are right. It is the the fault in the Horizontal scan circuits.Could be a Open Hor. Yoke coil, or - most likely a cold solder. Am yet to see a defective Yoke where the Horizontal Scanning coils have failed. seen lots of Vertical Scan coils failing tho'!

    Once again, my apologies.
