Yes! it may have a fuse, or the power transformer sometimes has a built in thermal fuse that will open causing the unit to go silent, unplug and remove back, [few screws] look for a fuse near a power transfomer and replace with same rating, if none can be found the power transformer is probably open.
Not recommend. Transformers are safety parts they are often only available from the maker IE: Crosley, who may only supply to the trade. If fitted wrong it could burn your house down and you would not be covered by your house insurance policy, whereas if the engineer does it wrong, you are covered. The transformer might also cost you $50 + postage, as the tech's firm can get things cheaper from makers than you could sometimes. So the amount doesn't seem to great.
a thin line across the tv screen is called horizontal collapse it is caused by a power fault in some cases its simply a blown capacitor. in other cases it can be from the main transformer. in most cases the repair is more expensive than the unit to replace but it depends on the unit and your value to it. in any case it needs to be repaired by a good tech. make sure you get a quote up front so you know what your looking at paying.
If you need for to replace the transformer, because it has failed, and looking for a replacement, then you need not bother. The reason for this is that makers consider power transformers as safety parts and should be replaced with the same part. Or least one approved by Crosley.
The solution is to replace the AC Power transformer. I have the same problem with my Crosley 4in1 machine. I trouble shooted it and got it to start working when I replaced the AC Power Transformer. The problem still is that It needs to be replaced with the correct 'Power Rated' Transformer.
1/ Obtain a genuine replacement transformer from the Crosley
company in the USA. 120volts and you must then use a
step down transformer for the Australian power supply.
2/ Obtain a locally manufactured transformer that has a 230v
Primary but the secondary is matched to the Crosley power
This can be sorted out by your service technician..
3/ Advertise in the "Wanted to buy" section of E-bay or any
other USA Internet trading post to obtain another CR-83
4/ Advertise in the "Wanted to buy" section of any Australian
Internet trading post to obtain another CR-83 complete....
(You just might get lucky)
Ensure the mains transformer is OK...
4/ Watch the internet trading post sites for another CR-83
complete and working "for sale" Buy that one then use your
existing one for spare parts in the future..(Excluding the
transformer of course).
