    I too have a single white line across the screen. I have heard a little static in the background, almost as if the reception was a little off. Left for work at 7pm, and it was working fine. Came home at 7am, thin white line acroos the screen. What and how much? Thankyou

I beleive something in the vertical circuit got damaged. Check resisters to see if they are burned and locate the vertical IC has about 8 to 10 pins. It stands up on the board and all the pins connect into the board in a straight line. If you can't do this, take the set in for service. Get the fly back replaced and the vertical section fixed.

Single white line across screen mean a vertical colapse. So you will need the vertical output and maybe a cap around [email protected]

My 26" 1997 Sharp T.V. model #25H-M60 turns off by itself and won't turn back part of the time.

First thing if you are able is to unplug set and remove rear cover (lay set face down on a padded surface).

entire main board should be able to be seen or released so it slides out--take a very careful look at flyback and rest of board for any cracked or bad solder connections.

One bad connection (age) can cause this.

Mpy TV makes a popping noise for about 30-45 seconds when you first turn it on, then stops. Is this a bad horizontal output transistor?

If this is a CRT type TV, then I would check for cracks in the flyback transformer. In a darkened setting, you should actually be able to see the sparks jumping to the frame from the transformer.
Replacement of the transformer is the ultimate solution, but you may be able to seal the crack with silicone sealant (like the kind used for fish tanks) until you can find a replacement.
If you can't see the sparks, it could be sparking internally, and simply must be replaced.

I have a Phillips Rear Projection TV and when it is turned on, it has a hiss coming from the back. Is this dangerous? Is there a way to fix it?

The flyback transformer is most likley arcing. It is high voltage so eventually the set will shut down and not power up again untill the transformer is replaced. However those flybacks for that model are very hard to find.

TV is beeping from the back.

The horizontal output transistor is shorted and probably the flyback transformer is bad as well. Expensive to fix.

My tv won't turn on.

You probably have bad connections on the flyback transformer. With the back off of the set, on the left side, you wlii see a transformer with a big red wire coming out of it, The connections under that transformer are bad. Be sure the set is unplugged when doing this!

Tv wont come on

Most times when you hear this kind of sound on a TV it is because the flyback transformer is bad (from what I can remember anyway!). Its been a while since I repaired TV's, so hopefully someone can verify my info. The flyback transformer steps up the voltage very high which powers the color tubes. If that is bad, you will get the thunk sound. Also, if memory serves me well, there is a high power output chip that could be bad as well. Please, anyone who knows TV's, please verify for me. It has been years for me!

Check for shorted base-collector junction on horizontal output transistor designator Q14401. Also coil L14401 going to base of transistor needs to be desoldered, scrape ends, resoldered. If horizontal transistor is shorted, real possible flyback transformer bad.
