Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV
Suddenly our Magnavox fs2550-a101 counsel tv started to show a distorted wavy picture in the center, of and on and quite frequently. I used the VCR to and the same thing happens. It's a nice TV and Mom is not sure if she can afford to have it repaired and would like to know if someone can estimate if this could be big cost or little cost to her. I replaced the circuit board for the remote sensor about 4 years ago and could be able to follow instructions on a simple repair. Any advise would be appreciated. If she knew it would be under $150, she may call for service.
Inside older (non-hd) televisions there is an electron gun of sorts that fires at each pixel to determine which color it displays. Usually normal distortion happens at the far left and/or right of the screen. Distortion in the center (to me anyway) sounds like it points to a pretty serious malfunction. The fact that it is not constant leads me to believe that any amount of screen adjustment wouldn't permenantly solve the problem. If you're lucky you could just have to replace a capacitor, but the problem could be as deep as the tube itself. If it's worth it to you to either get an estimate, or if you're mechanically enclined enough, to track down a copy of the service manual and diagnose the problem yourself.
