    Black screen

    My TV seems to have a problem.

    When I switch it on, the screen goes black with a thin white line going from left to right across the middle of it.

    The Brand name is: Orion

    Can someone please tell me, does this mean the tube is dead.
    Or can I fix it with a few replacement parts and a soldering iron.

    Thank you in advance

    For cathode ray tube (CRT) based TV's, this is a symptom of a problem with the vertical deflection circuitry/subsystem, i.e there is no vertical deflection. Whether it is a simple fix depends on which component(s) failed and your electronics troubleshooting experience. Also, it is possible to electrocute yourself working around a CRT. All things considered, I'd suggest obtaining a new LCD based TV.
