Having problems with your Standard (CRT) Televisions ?

I have an early ps3 with 4 usb slots, my problem is that when i power on by the front switch, it shuts off, i can repeat turning it back on and each time it stays on just a bit longer each time, i may do this 10 times before it comes on and stays on, and i am able to play any game with no problem until i shut it down, this only occurs when it has cooled down for a couple of hours.... any ideas or thoughts for fixing this problem?

Hi kennh06,\015\012
\015\012If you can take it apart, concentrate in the power supply board, this is where the power cord connected because the fault is came from it. The caused of the symptom was the leaky/dried filter electrolytic capacitor in that section. It will produce an out-of-regulation to the power supply which made the unit disable, it needs a warm-up to make itself stable(full charged) that's why powering on and off will make it to comes on but the symptom will get worst. Sometimes it has a bulged/dome at the top but not all, you must have a capacitor checker to determine its condition and pinpoint the faulty one. If you don't have it, you may replaced all electrolytic capacitor in the output of the power supply feeding the main board.\015\012
\015\012Upon installing the new capacitor, ensure the right polarity to avoid further damaged. Once isolated it and replaced with new same capacitance and voltage ratings, your unit will back to normal again.\015\012
\015\012Here's the sample of leaky capacitor\015\012

My Hitachi Mod # 50FX19K, Ser # V6H000056 Man Aug 1996 has a power problem. About a month ago it started turning off for no apparent reason after I was watching for an hour or so. I could turn it back on with no problem. That time period kept getting shorter and sometimes it would take 2 or 3 tries to get it to come on. Once back on it would play until I turned it off. Now it only stays on for about 30 seconds and I can't get it to restart. If I wait and hour or two it will come back on but only

I have a Samsung LN40A550P3FXZA that is giving me problems. When I first started noticing problems I would turn the TV on and I would hear the power-up sound, the backlight would come on and then the red LED would flash a few times then the backlight would go off and it would repeat (power-up sound---backlight on---LED flash---backlight off). It would do this several times. Sometimes I would be able to get picture if I hit the source button on the side of the TV when the backlight first came

This is a problem with my Vizio 19 inch LCD TV. I bought it about a year ago. This didn't start happening until about half a year ago. One day the problem started while I was sitting there playing some video games (the fact it's a game instead of a over-the-air TV signal shouldn't make a difference though, I don't think). All of a sudden the screen went black, but the power indicator light did NOT change to yellow (as it would have if the TV was in the off state). The remote control wouldn't tur

Dear Sirs, Recently, my Sharp dvd-video combi player has been encountering some problems regarding the playing of dvd's. When I watch a movie, in several occasions the movie will freeze up.

My RCA 52 inch rear projector had started turning itself off last. This happenend several times but we were able to turn it back on with no problem. Friday it was on for several hours and I turned it off. About two hours later, I tried to turn it on and it kept the green on switch for about 4 sec and turn off. Then it would turn green for the same length of time with a "SIZZLING BACON" sound. It would try to restart itself one more time after turning itself off. Is this tv FRIED?.

I have a Mitsubishi WS55809 that I purchased in 2002, and my kids have been using it for gaming. As they are playing, the screen convergence will change constantly from a normal image, to a "bow tie" image...if I tap the side of the TV, sometimes the screen goes back to normal or from normal to that "bow tie" image. I've heard you can buy "convergence IC's" to fix the problem? could it be a mirror alignment problem? How do I fix this? Mark


Unless you've moved the unit lately, or the kids have treated it roughly, it's probably not the mirror, which is fixed in place with screws on this model.\015\012\015\012You can also take a look at this website ... Mitsubishi WS-55809 55" Rear Projection Television

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

Hi I have recently got a Hitachi HDR255 250gb Freeview + recorder.

It has been doing this several times and I can't rewind back to the beginning of a program which the box says it can do. Please HELP Jim


Jim, it may say it on the box, but as i found out today, this recorder does not allow the rewinding of live TV. In fact, it seems that few freeview+ boxes do, even if the box says so. I had to return a hdr255 to Argos today for this very reason. ... Flat Panel Televisions
