Standard CRT Toshiba TV - 4inch tall picture in middle of screen...

I was just given a TV by my father that worked fine until one day it was turned on and it had a picture about 4 inches tall the full width of the screen.  I'm not exactly sure what to call the problem simply.

I'm assuming the issue is more than likely in the vertical deflection circuit but don't have much experience with TV's.  I'm well aware of CRT safety, and comfortable with electronics, but am looking for some guidance...  I'd like to learn my way around TV's but need a place to start.  If I fix it cool... if not I'd like to learn something.

The TV is a Toshiba CF3066A, powers on fine, audio is fine, tuner fine, picture not so wonderful.  The picture seems to start right in the center of the screen (vertically) and scans up maybe 4 inches. 

Any help would be appreciated.  I could post pictures of the screen if that would help...

Hi,

 

Not familiar with your actual model.

But a comon problem with older Tosh sets is the 2.2uf electrolytic caps from memory they are usually red there is 1 next to frame Ic & the second is near Psu.

Allso check frame o/p IC for dry solder joints this is easy to test for.

Tap the tv while it is on if the the frame suddenly pop to full size picture you know its dry joints so resolder frame IC.

My picture display is narrow and does not cover the screen.


Does the Genie box have screen settings in in? Sometimes hd will show in smaller screens. Makes the picture nicer. If you adjust the screen size with your remote the high definition "niceness" will not be there.

White screen


I had the same problem with my Pioneer Inno Gex-Inno2BK XM radio receiver. One evening while leaving work, I gently took it out of the cradle & the screen suddenly went completely blank & all white. I could still hear music but there was no screen visible. Solution is this: (1) Gently remove the back cover which covers the battery. (2) Gently remove the dark blue square battery which is only about 1 inch (width) by 3/4 inch (height) by 1/4 of an inch in thickness. I removed mine by holding the receiver upside down & gently shaking it with one hand until the battery came out into my other hand. After about 4 or 5 gentle shakes, it came out. (3) Wait about 10 seconds. (4) Place battery back into XM radio receiver being careful to line the copper power receptable on the battery with a corresponding surface inside the receiver. Each copper area is only about 1/10 of an inch by 1/10 of an inch. Use this as a guide when putting the battery back in to make sure it's lined up properly. (5) Gently slide the cover back in place & let it snap into place. (6) Turn receiver back on by pushing power button like normal. (7) XM receiver should boot up with a full display just like new. All recorded songs are still in place. Nothing has been lost. Problem solved. Root cause of problem is probably some type of boot-up issue with the receiver in which the battery (i.e., the power supply) just happened to be slightly ajar...which also persisted even when placing the receiver back in the cradle until the above steps were taken. The steps above worked beautifully for me...Hope it works for you as well! Have A Great Day...Tom Armstrong

Below the door, there's a plastic cover several inches tall, full machine width. Just remove it and on the right you'll see the filter. Make sure machine is unplugged. Unscrew the filter counter clockwise, clean it, check the pump blades and inlet for some foreign objects and screw filter back on.

civilman, the first set has either no high voltage or is collapsed vertically, until someone checks for high voltage there is no concrete answer, the AV27730 is vertical collapse from your description, either the voltage to the vertical IC is missing or the vertical IC has failed, not a big deal cost-wise, hope this answers your questions, if not e-mail me back, good luck, BMW Rider
