    How do I take the screen out?

  • timinsall Sep 17, 2008

    Because of its age should I go ahead and replace the bulb?

    there is trim arouond the front of the tv that pops off and they there are several brackets that hold the scerrn in place that you have to take out so toy can clean the screen and while there you may want to clean the tubes as well as they will be there where you can get to them.the front trim just pops loose and the rest you will be able to see. ron

    i would not replace the bulb until you know for sure that its the problem. i would go ahead and clean the screen and clean the tubes while you are in there but dont try to replace the tubes until you have the tv checked out.just wipe them down really well on the glass part and then if you want to have someone look at it do so but dont overspend it may not be worth the mone to fix

  • Ronnie Houston Sep 17, 2008

    one thing more.....have a repairman give you an estimate for the repair before you let the do anything and if you think its worth it then go for it if not just let it go....im going to guess at least 400.00 to repair just from what youve said here but it could be a bit less depending on what they find wrong.the tubes alone are about 300 each so as i said dont be in a big hurry,,,,,have it checked first and see what they tell you then you decide from there..its your decision

You probably have a V26 chassis. The only fix to this problem now that parts are no longer available from MITS is to call their Consumer relations dept. at 800-332-2119. If you have a qualified tech come out and estimate the job, Mits will offer you an attractive discount on a new model. To repair your problem would be around $750

Bad Fan... either the CPU Fan or the Power Supply Fan or the Case Fan. If the PC is older than 4 years it is probably the Power Supply.

Monitor does not come on right away, it makes a clicking noise then say no signal analog. after i trun off and on several times it comes on but the screen is wavy for a while


when you say the screen comes on wavy for awhile, im supposing you have a CRT monitor, not the flat panel type. That seems to be the degauss feature when you turn on the monitor which is normal. The no video issue may be a bad video cable or connection the the PC.

Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking


This should be a quick fix. Try resoldering the vertical IC. This is a small flat IC attached to a heat sink with about 11 pins. It should be marked LA7837 or something similar. That should resolve the problem.

Keep us posted.

Poor playback


Because the cable signal is OK, this eliminates the tuner as your problem and leaves the power supply which is a common problem. It is a switch mode type which often have trouble maintaining control of its output voltages and produce trouble downstream in the video circuitry. Either the power supply is failing which can be wholesale replaced for about a $150, or something somewhere else is failing and loading down the supply causing it to overwork. Usually in this case, you can hear a whine noise if you listen close.

Samsung lnt4065 problem


It sounds like the TV was most likely dropped, and there is probably some breakage! I would call right away to have the set exchanged!

Zenith IQB60M92W 60in Rear Projection


Sounds like some kind of local interference. The first thing I'd try is disconnect the antenna input. If the wavy line goes away, it's probably something coming in through the antenna. Then I would start shutting off the circuit breakers until I was down to just the one the set is plugged into. If it goes away I would start flipping the breakers on, one by one until the noise returned. If you can isolate it to one circuit, start looking at everything that is on that circuit. If all else fails, call a TV tech.
