Having problems with your Standard (CRT) Televisions ?

I have a Mitsubishi CS 3515R 35" Tube TV. The screen has narrowed at the top and the bottom so only about 2/3 of the horizontal screen has picture. There are black areas at the top and bottom. It also sometimes starts out just in B&W and takes a while to go to color. Is it worth fixing?



Answers :

There are two issues, the first is a vertical deflection problem, "needs a few parts+an ic" the second problem is intermittent color, "crystal and color processor ic" If the set is close to 10 years old then your money is better spent on a new tv.

Samsung tx-r3079wh 1080i LCD TV. Well first, the speakers stopped working alltogether randomly. More recently, the picture sometimes is warped along the top and bottom of the screen. It isn't always like that and the picture in the center is fine. That's been happening for months.I don't know when it started but the picture is also stretched beyond it's edges and has a purple spot towards the top right corner especially when something orange is displayed. I've dealt with all of this but more rec

Picture problems Upon startup, the right 1/3rd of the screen has a trailing rainbow effect. This sometimes clears up quickly but sometimes takes hours. When it does clear up the picture is perfect. Then if I shut it off the whole process starts again. sometimes when the rainbow effect subsides the right side of the screen gets very dark almost black and the picture cannot be seen on that part of the screen. Is this a simple component that can be replaced of is it something more? I love the pict

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

When I turn on the set, the right half of the screen is distorted. It flickers, different colors move from center to far right of screen, double images that appear as negitives and sometimes that half of the screen is very dark. Sometimes it will clear up for a second or two then go back to the problem. When the problem first started, it only lasted for approx 10-15 minutes then the picture was great. Now it takes 1-2 hours for it to clear up. Once it clears, I get a great picture. The lef

Hi, I have a kp53hs30 tv and a month ago, the image started "bouncing" up and down, both with the directv feed and with a dvd player. sometimes it bounces very fast and sometimes it goes all the way around like a vegas coin slot. It gets to the point where the top part of the image is seen at the bottom part of the screen, is there a quick fix for this? thanks!


I do not think there is an easy fix for this. The problem you have mentioned is associated with the V-hold circuits or the CRTs itself. So if you would like to try a component level repair then let me know and I will guide you ... Flat Panel Televisions

I have a SANYO DP46848, 46 inch flat screen hdtv purchased about 2 - 3 years ago. The screen goes dark on the left side (top .25% is ok). It sometimes fixes itself after an hour or so. Sometimes you can fix it by placing your hand on the dark spot for 10-15 seconds. There is a thin horizontal line about 1/4th of the way down from the top with the top of line ok when the bottom of line area goes dark.

2001 Sony KP-53V90 53 in. Rear Projection Television has a problem related only to the picture, the top and bottom of the screen are bowed into the middle, the video feed label and volume scale are also bowed. The screen also has 3 RGB lines crossing the top of the screen.
