Having problems with your Standard (CRT) Televisions ?

Screen is dark but the middle looks like a burnt spot. Looks like someone formed dust to look like a small explosion. When power is turned on all that comes on is infrared light. To fix. Power on and off. Checked power source plugging in and out. Changed outlets. Looked in the back of the tv to see if any lights from components inside the tv



Answers :

From your description the picture tube has gone, and usually it will crack where the filaments light up, once air gets in the vacuum seal is compromised causing particles to fly damaging the delicate phosphor where the picture is generated. The replacement of the picture tube will far exceed the cost of a new tv.

I have a VP50HDTV20A, was watching tv this past Sunday and all of a sudden it shut off.

I have a Maxent MX-58HPT51 model P58H10NJA. I bought it in 2007, have been using it for years. I recently moved houses and brought the tv with me. When I plugged it into power at my new house, the LED did not light up and the TV will not turn on. I know the outlet is hot, tried different plugs.

Mitsubishi WS-65809. Yesterday, plugged into the wall in the first outlet, I powered off my modem and computer (trying to get Cox to fix my internet connection) that were attached to a power bar in the second outlet. TV was turned on. Once I got my internet connection working, realized that the TV was no longer turned on, and would not turn on. Made sure plug was seated right, but no dice.

TV was working fine. Shut it off, all power went, no red light or any other sign of power. Will not turn back on, as if no power source. Unplugged for 1 hour, plugged back in again, nothing, uplugged over night, plugged it in, still nothing. Tried other outlets. Checked the safety fuse, it is good. This TV is not over used (2 adults), TV is 2 years old.

Hello! I'm having the infamous black screen issue with my Viewsonic N3252W. I initially replaced the Power supply, because that looked like it was "the fix" for this particular issue. I powered it on, and I was getting the same problem. There was a faint picture (you need to look at the screen from a certain angle, with an appropriate amount of light shining on the screen.) with no back light! All of the voltages coming off the new PSU are right where they should be, including the 24VDC to the

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.

I have a Samsung HT-Q40N that when plugged up there is no indication of power to the unit. I have spoken with Samsung support, but it was the wrong thing to do. They wanted me to take it to a repair shop. I am on a fixed budget and would like to try to fix it myself. If there is a solution to this issue that can be easily fixed please let me know. If not I am going to manually remove the dvds that are stuck in the unit and chunk the whole unit.

M220va wont turn on when plugged in and has a small white led light on the bottom right of the front panel that slowly flashes on and off. i've heard this light will come on when there is any problem with any of the boards, kind of like a safty shut off indicator. this makes it hard to diagnose since you cant look at any of the symptomes. sooo... i was wondering if there were any "common problems" with this model that might most likely need to be replaced (power board? main board?) fuse se

My screen won't come on, however the blue light does come on to show it has power. Sometimes the screen just stays black, other times it seems like it's going to turn on but doesn't, meaning the screen lightens a little but it never fully comes on. This happens intermittently; when I unplug the power source for a small amount of time it sometimes fixes the problem and the screen comes on, however it often takes several tries. Periodically it just comes on right away. Also the remote frequently s

It just makes this clicking sound. If I unplug it, sometimes it will function normally again and sometimes the same problem occurs.
