Having problems with your Standard (CRT) Televisions ?

There is a black rectangle approximately 3" wide around the picture. I don't think it is the caption button I looked at that. I'm pretty sure it isn't the picture tube going out. Looks like something that has been selected, but I don't know what to unselect.

Shut off CC. ... JVC AV-32S575 32" TV

Blank Screen When I turn on the tv, it looks like the backlight is going to stay on, but it shuts off. There is sound to the television still, and it looks like there is a faint outline of what is supposed to be displayed on the screen. I heard something about the inverter board, but is it the board or the lamp itself?

Toshiba MW24F51: it looks like the picture is folding back and down at the top of the screen. It like taking a sheet of paper and bending the top (1/4) over backward. When I see credits roll... they go to the top of the screen and roll over the back. What's going on? Thanks

I have a Sony KF-42WE610. It has developed evenly spaced lateral lines across the picture (double the lines for Hi Def). Looks like a tube television that needs the vertical hold adjusted. The screen jumps when cold, but gets better after warming up. The lines never go away. Looks like electrical interference. I have disconnected everything from it and switched outlets. Still same symptoms. Any idea what could cause this?

I have a Samsung LCD flat screen tv with picture distortion. The model is LN-R377D. The picture starts to look like a picture negitive. It comes and goes. Started over 3 years ago but it would go months without doing it again at first. Now it does it all the time and its lasting longer. The TV is less than 5 years old and has been doing this off and on for 3 years.

I have a sanyo CE32LD90-B which has just developed a line approx two thirds from the left of the screen and it extends about 3/4trs of the way to the top, its only a couple of millimeters wide, it almost looks like an absence of picture along that line.

I have a Samsung HLP 4674w DLP. The picture started to lose color and look like a negative image. Then it would get scrambled and eventually go out. Powering on and off sometimes fixed it, but only temporarily. Sometimes it would also turn off and on by itself. I thought it may be the lamp so I replaced it, but it did not fix the problem. Next I thought it may be the color wheel so I replaced that, but the problem did not go away. Also when this happens the Power switch will not turn the TV off.


You need to change the lamp out, it builds up a internal resistance, and pulls your voltaged down, it will get to the point where you TV will not come on at all. Replace your lamp, you can get one at ... Samsung HLP4674W 46" Rear Projection HDTV

Greetings, I get a perfectly good picture for about 20 minutes & then it clicks & turns off. I hit the power again & it will go on for less time and shorter and shorter time on until it stays on for about 30 seconds. I have not noticed any flashing lights & the standby light does not come on. Most of the time there is a quck horizontal bar (looks like the whole screen shrunk to 1/4" high) sometimes this horizontal bar will also show on powerup after many tries.


Sounds like a component or 2 overheating and probably in the frame stage of the set. You would need the service manual to fix it and someone who is capable. The manual should be obtainable from sites such as www.mauritron.com The make and model would ... Flat Panel Televisions

I have a Samsung hlp5063w dlp tv. 1- loud buzzing noise coming from the left side of the set (looking from the front). When I tap it the noise tends to go away and come back. So I'm thinking it's the cooling fan for the lamp which I just replaced. Would the color wheel act like that when I'm tapping the side of the tv? The picture is beautiful and there are no problems there. 2- If its the cooling fan, how do I replace it?
