Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV
I have a Magnavox 27 inch television set with just a horizontal line in the middle when turned on. The sound and even the channel changer works. I would like to know if this is a costly repair, or is there something that I could do to fix this?
From your description of the problem, there seems to be a Cold solder in the Vertical Oscillator or Deflection Coil circuits.
If you know Solid State electronics, and are good with a soldering Iron, sure u can do this yourself.
U gotta trace the Vertical section components and locate the cold solder. In most cases it will be a loose connector from the Deflection coil to the main PCB.Also check for the soldering of the Vertical output IC.

Tnewk, Your symptom is no vertical deflection = check for
B+ voltage present at vertical output IC.If present = replace IC.
If missing, check B+ power supply............T.
Note: 10 ohm resistor replacement symptom = No video,
lit white screen with retrace lines ...........T.

Normally this is not a costly repair. This is because it could be the vertical coupling capacitor. However if it is the yoke transformer it could get costly. There is no way for you to repair this problem if you do not have a background in electronics. So I would suggest taking the TV to a repair shop to get an estimate. If the estimate is within the range you are willing to spend let them fix it.
I hope this helps,
