Having problems with your Standard (CRT) Televisions ?

Our 2004 rca tube tv screen went recently went out on us. When you turn on the power, you can hear the tv and you'll only see a blue line in the middle of the screen that shrinks and fads out and the tv eventually turns off completely. We cannot see anything on the screen besides the blue line and only for about 3 seconds. We would like to know how to fix this in the cheapest manner possible. I looked online before and it said something about the tact switches possibly needing replacement?

Answers :

\015\012It is reparable problem. You see a blue line across the middle of the screen I thinks and posts this solution. The fault is due to the absence of vertical scan. In your set, there is an IC used for this purpose, and it has been dead short now. That is why you see the line at the begining, and it disappears a few minutes after. The vertcial output IC can be located at the main printed circuit board, usually screwed on to a metal heatsink to sink away the heat genereted in it while working. You can easly located it by the following method.
\015\012Look at the deflection coil, the coil fitted at the neck of the picture tube. From which, four wire will go towards the printed circuit board, and will be pluged on to it with socket. Just draw out the printed circuit board from the TV and turn it upside down. Look for the connections that I have menttioned earlier, four of them, out of which two of them will be for horizontal scan, and two of them will meant for vertical scan. Follow the vertical scan track, can be identified by two wires emerges form the board, will be connected via copper track and will go to the vertical section, from which you can identify the vertical IC fitted neareby it, usually will have 7 or 9 pin vertical type one.
\015\012There is no need to check it now, because, it has already been shorted and damaged in your TVs present case. Desolder it out from the board, and go for a new one of same type and number, replace it as the previous IC was, will solver your proble.
\015\012You must have a desoldering pump, a soldering Iron, solder wire, some knoledge in electronics,and more comecentration and patience. OK.

I have a Sharp LS-26SB24U that has a white screen when turned on. I tested main fuse and F404 fuse both were good. I tested power going from F404 to ground and it was 13v on both sides. I guess my next step is to see if the T-con board is getting power but I'm not sure how. I tried following a white line that said power and along is was a hole and I went from there to ground but got nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I have a Toshiba 57H84R rear projection tv that has developed a problem.

One time it did this, there was a bright blue circle in the center of the screen and now there is a permanent yellow spot in the cente

Power Surge After house power went out and came on 20 seconds later, my Pioneer would not power back up. It has two LEDs - the blue "on" LED flashes 12 times on, pauses, and repeats the sequence over and over. I tried powering down from the switch and even removing AC power entirely for a couple minutes. The best it would do is to go thru it's normal power up sequence, show a "starting up - please wait" screen for a couple minutes, and then shutting back down with the blue LED flashing.

My Sceptre X37SV-Komodo LCD TV has dark spots, kind of feather shaped, with indistinct edges, several inches by an inch or so. They are neither vertical nor horizontal and are not like the bright/dark areas you sometimes see near the edges of a laptop screen which are caused by backlight problems. They show up when I have any input signal (NTSC, VGA, Composite, or HDMI), but not when there is no signal and just a blue (TV generated) screen. They are most visible when the image is blue or g
