Toshiba 36A41 Bad Gun or Driver?

Hi I have a Toshiba 36A41 that started to make a loud poping noise in the tube. It also displayed angled raster lines and got very brite. Powering off on produced a flashing power led, and nothing elense. The set after sitting did power on but the picture is now heavy green. I DL the service manual and tried to reset the white balance. When cycling through the values for each driver (for the guns) Green and Red are fine, as in you can go to their max. When adjusting the Blue value it on 3 ocasions produced the same poping on in the tube and produced a high tone. Reducing the value (turning down) would stop the problem. The thing is I cant produce white with the lower values. So is the problem in the Tube or can it be the driver circuit for the blue gun screwing up? Also when adjusting the 5 values RCUT GCUT BCUT GDRV BDRV, is there a set sequence that should be followed? I get what I think looks good but when I check a thin horazontal line which should be white if adjusted properly, its always a different color. Im just wondering if there is an approach to acheaving the desired balance. Thanks

The fault is with its video output stage circuit. The fault is called "one color predominant' screen. In most cases, this might be to a loose solder terminals at the video output stage circuit board. This board can be located at the neck of the picture tube, will plugged on to it directly. If you wish to get more details, check this link.

Toshiba 36A41 pops when I change the channel and I can not adjust color, brightness, etc,and remote does not turn off tv.

The symptoms you describe is the main processor controller is about to fail, when that happens the tv will eventually become unuseable. if the set is more than 5 to 10 years old you will be further ahead to replace the set.

TOshiba 36A41 CRTTV has a color problem, i can not see the color Blue.

If it got like that gradually suspect a low emission condition on the Blue gun inside the picture tube, this condition can sometimes be fixed by running a gun cleaning procedure, this is done with a crt analyser device at a repair shop. The other cause for a no blue picture could be a Blue color output that has stopped working, the loss of blue is suddendly when the color out fails, it could also be a problem in the signalprocesing circuit. I suggest having it checked by a tech because it would be something you could not check, first because of lack of equippment and second, you would need some technical troubleshooting skills to do the job.

The colour has gone wrong on my tv it show the the green and blue pigment but not the red. wil this be an expensive repair?

This problem could be as simple as poor solder connections on the board that sits on the back of the CRT to a defective driver transistor for the red gun to a bad picture tube. It is possible that this is an inexpensive repair (solder connection or defective transistor) or expensive (bad tube). If you can solder, try resoldering the CRT board connections and see if that resolves the problem. If not, then have a shop take a quick look. They will be able to determine whether the CRT is bad or not.

You have no blue gun transmission. Check your work around the tube and make sure you have good connections. Ohterwise it's in the blue gun circuitry.

Pic Bleeding

this sympton is characterized by the presence of red, cyan, green, magenta, blue or yellow colour in a supposedly plain white raster. proper colour reproduction cannot be expected if the raster is coloured. this symptom is caused by a poor white balance adjustment of by a trouble in the CRT, colour amplifier, color demodulation or colour output circuits. if the raster has a tint of red or cyan, check the R-Y output circuits and the first grid, second grid and cathode circuits of the red electron gun. but if you dont know anything about this, just bring it to a qualified service technician. good luck!
