Question about Mitsubishi CS-27205 TV

1 Answer

Screen is black except for thin line in middle of screen

My insignis is-tv040919 is about two years old. I turned it on today and there is a thin line in the middle of the screen that is obviously the picture and the rest is black. I have a Mitsubishi CS-27205 that was purchased in 1994.

It's a great television, (15 years old)

but today, I turned it on and also have the same problem:

thin horizontal line of color where the picture should be.

Rest of the screen is black.

Can not find anything in the troubleshooting guide relating to this type of problem.

thanks.

    Thanks, Coyotedave.

    Do you think this is something that I could fix? (I've been laid off since November, so I don't have the extra cash to get it fixed).

    I'll look through my manual and see where the main board is, and google the rest and try to have a go at it!

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

Most likely the vertical oscillator circuit has failed. As CRT televisions have gone the way of the dinosaur, my advice to you is to give a fond adieu and invest in a new TV.

The vertical output section circuit has the fault. Contact any experienced service technician. This is not a user repairable fault.

Tv screen is black except for 1 horizontal line of color


The line is there because the vertical deflection unit - the one that spreads that line across the entire screen to form the image - has failed. Replacing it is a job for a professional, or at least an experienced amateur, and the parts will be quite difficult to find for such an old tv .

Tv not working


this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!

Blue tint and lines on screen.


Those lines sound like "retrace lines" and several things can cause them. The most common are shorts inside the picture tube and shorted semiconductors in the video driver circuits. They can also be seen if the blue screen voltage is too high or if someone has tampered with the screen voltage control.
