Having problems with your Standard (CRT) Televisions ?

I have a Toshiba model 36A42 TV. I do not have the original remote. It has been working fine with the universal cable tv remote, I can turn it on/off with that remote, I can hear sound, but can not change channels. The TV screen somehow got stuck on one of the menu screens. It is a blue screen and says System Information at the top. It lists some information: Model, region, s/w ver, sdk ver, etc. At the bottom of the screen, it says System Reset Done. At the bottom left it says checksum: 14

My tv picture comes on bright and clear--within a few seconds, 1/3 of the bottom screen is blacked out and on top of the rectangular black out is writing including the date and time and other lines of information that makes no sense to me. When I hit the volume button on the remote to increase or decrease the volume, the rectangular block disappears and the whole picture is there again. As soon as I remove my finger from the volume button, I lose the picture again.

After punching some of the buttons in the pip row (bottom of the remote control) a message that says "no signal" appeared on the screen and within a few seconds, the tv set turned off. After several seconds, I can again turn on the tv, but before I can attempt to change anything, the "no signal" message appears and the tv turns itself off. Any suggestions???????????

Hi. I have a 5 and1/2 year old 42" Hitatchi Ultravision rear projection LCD T.V. Model 42V525. It has served us well all these years without needing a replacement bulb yet. (Touch wood).

Vertical white lines appear on the screen. Samsung provides the following information but doesn't say what circuitry they are referring to. Samsung says: DLP TV: I Have Vertical White Lines Appearing On The Screen When I Watch Video, TV, Cable And DVD.

We lost remote control on Emerson HDTV. Picture format doesn't fill the entire screen. We scrolled thru the menu using buttons along the bottom of tv, and tried going to "picture" and scrolled through each option including personal, standard, movie and game.
