Question about Hitachi 32CX39B 32" TV

2 Answers

Hitachi 32CX39B When my tv was turned on, everything was fine, but when the xbox got turned on, only a horizontal strip showed on the screen. I tried unplugging everything, and there is still only a horizontal strip that shows part of the picture. One of my room mates said that he hit the top of the tv a little bit, and then it went back to normal. But, now it's just a horizontal strip. There's sound on the tv, but when my dvd player is plugged in, the sound is distorted.

    I've had this expensive TV for only 5 years with perfect color etc. but turned it on the other day and there was a 1 inch horizontal line, I've turned it off and on for 2 days but still the same results.

    I may take your advice and bang on it next

The solution by jomaru is what I would suggest, but in addition the fault may be a bad connection in the power supply regulator chip, giving a low voltage, which may also affect the sound quality. This will need looking at by a local service engineer using at least a meter. Inspect the component boards for burnt resistors which sometimes fail. If the copmonent is located and changed but fails again, a service engineer must be called, beware of high voltages.

The xbox is just a coincidence,the good thing is your friend tap on the set and it reacted going back to normal maybe for only a second but is good,you have a loose conection is the vertical IC,this the circuit in charge of pushing the picture up and down.The vetical IC is normally mounted in a small heatsink and is flat,it should have 10 pins soldered to the board.The board need the be flip over and the pins resoldered. If you are familiar with tv service you have a place to start but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer.Let Us know how it goes and if you need more information.

Screen only shows horizontal line

if line is left to right in middle of screen the problem is in the Vertical deflection circuit---could be either a soldering problem with the vertical output ic or a bad part in that circuit. If this has been helpful please give me a vote.

If the sat feed is on channel 3, and the TV is tuned in and still does not get the feed, check the feed wire to be okay. If all is okay, there is a possiblity that the tuner module in the set has failed.
