Picture has been reduced to a thin line in center of set sound and remote functions still work
Your TVs vertical output section has the trouble. All TVs have both vertical and horizontal scanning sections, which scans the picuture on the secreen both vertically and horizontally, to get a picture frame. If horizontal scan fails, you will see a vertical line at the middle of the screen, and if vertical scan fails, there will be a horizontal line across the middle of the screen. Your TV has the second stated trouble. To get it rectified, you have to open your Tv.
Unplug your TV from mains socket and open it. Locate the vertical output section. It is so easy to locate. Your TVs picture tube neck id fitted a coil alongwith it, which is called the deflection yoke, and it will have four wire connections. Out of these four wires, two of them will be thick, usually red and blue in colour, and the other twos will be thin. Just follow the two thin wires, you will reach to a point that these four wires are plughed onto a pin connection, on the main printed circuit board.
Upside down the board, and trace the track to which these two thin wires goes, through the print side, will reach to the vertical output section.
Normally this section consists of an IC for this purpose, and can be screwed onto a metal heatsink, as it will get heated when it works. Before unsodering it , just look at the soldering points of this IC pins for any loose soldering points. Loose soldering are very difficult to locate, as thay will be very minute up to microns, so resolder all the pins of this Ic, by applying a little more solder, and see the effect. Sometimes this will resolve the problem. If not go tho the main input voltage that goes to Ic pin. If it is not there, check out the reason. If it is there and still vertcal scanning does not occur, resolder out the IC from the circuit board, and go for a same type and number.
