I have a mitsubishi CS-35405 TV that has a faint, hazy, 2 inch vertical line down the middle of the screen when the cable box is on .It goes away and then comes back on. When it appears, I get a degraded picture. Also, I have shadowing of the lettering. When I turn off the cable box, I experience a thin vertical line that races across the black screen followed by a 1 inch hortizontal line that follows it.It seem to me that I am picking up some type of interference. When I go to channel 4 on the antenna, I get wavy lines of dots, straght line of dots that roll up the screen along with the waves. At certain times, I get fast shooting black lines shooting across the screen sometime the lines are very thick. Does any know what is going on with my TV?

Re: thin vertical line
What you have described is definitely some form of Electrical Interference. Interference can come from a variety of causes. Is the Cable Inputting the Cable Box close to some High Voltage Electrical Lines? Or Are you located near some Electrical Power Station? Or A Police station, where the Radio Transmitter of the Police Station causing the Interference? As I said, there are a variety of reasons. Also, Try to check if the connector is loose at the rear of the Cable Box, or at the rear of the TV.
You will have to eliminate every possibility reason.
Wish i could help further.

The problem is in the vertical section of the main board. Bad capacitors and maybe the vertical IC. If you are not inclined to be a tech you will have to take it to a shop.. I don't know what they may charge but I normally get $69- $89
My cs-35405, only has input 1 and input 2, but has ant. A and ant.B So there are really 4 inputs. The input button on my remote, gives choice of these 4. Any vcr, dvd, cable or cable box, and satellite would be hooked seperatly on these. But to record TV, satellite or cable would need to go to recorder first and then toTV.
If you have a menu button on the front of your tv go into the closed caption portion and turn off the text mode . This will get your picture back . If you don't have a menu button on the front of your tv you will need a remote that can access the menu . Good luck
The display screen is made of a matrix of elements connected to cables
along the side and top. On your unit, some of these many, tiny
connections are making contact intermittantly thus losing the elements
in that area. These contacts are held in place with just pressure and
if that is disturbed, you lose that line of elements. Try squeezing the
cabinet of the TV on the outside at the top in the area of the loss and
see if that makes a difference. May have to go inside and see if the
contact assembly is disturbed or warped or something.
Hope ya fix it!
have a Mitsubishi TV 1993. Model CS-35301. The problem is that there is a white line that is running through a blank screen. The sound is fine just no picture. Have you heard of "Vertical Collapse?"
I would love to save the TV.
nothing to worry just minimise brightness to avoid screen burn.
means one bright hor.line in the middle of screen.
this problem can be solved
1 check vertical yoke connector or wire loose
2 check supply to vertical section which normally comes from EHT transformer
check components in vertical section or print loose
