Re: Screen turns green then shuts off

Sounds like the green picture tube is arking or shorting out and at that very second the safety circuit senses the problem and makes the complete set turn off,the only way to repair is the replacement of the green picture tube and it can be too expensive.Maybe if you move the complete set from one side of the room to another you might get lucky.Maybe!!!!!!!!!!! is worth to try.

TV click on and off.When it come on it has a green screen with lines. Stay on just for about 3 sec. than click off.

The green crt is dawning to much current, and that is why the TV is shutting down, if you remove the speaker cover, there is a focus block, that has six controls, on it three are for red blue, and green screen voltages, if you turn green down where the retrace lines go away, the TV should stay on, it is not worth fixing, you would be better off getting a new LCD.

It appears something is wrong with the green tube. The picture comes on and then the green tube flashes and the TV shuts off and the LED blinks 8 times

This set has a history of bad picture tubes but there is an adjustment you can try to see if it will buy you some time to use the set further.

v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} w\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} .shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);} Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Here is what you need to do.

1.) You need to remove the entire plastic piece below the front of the screen. You most likely will find 3 screws on either side in back that you have to remove.

2.) The grill will not come out easy, pull from one side and then when it starts to come loose from the other side(there are several plastic pegs that hold it in.) Then from the bottom pull out( most of these sets have square plastic tabs at the top that tuck in.)

3.) With the grill removed locate the inspection plate behind it (it usually has 6 screws.) You will have to tilt the grill to the left and on its side as several cables are connected to it--they are held in place with trash bag like ties that you can release to get some room.

4.) With the inspection plate removed you will see a fairly small (about 3 inch square) BLACK PLASTIC BLOCK WITH SIX CONTROLS-usually they are marked with whiteout so someone can tell if they have been adjusted.

5.) You need to look very close at the block with a flashlight----usually the top three controls are FOCUS--don't touch those.
The lower three are usually marked Screen and if you look very close you will see b, g, r(blue green red)

6.)Usually the GREEN will be in the middle.

7.) Once you locate the GREEN screen control have the set on and turn it down--if the set is shutting down you may have only a few seconds to try to turn it down---usually to the left with the Screen control.

8.) Best way to do this if the set is on is on a video input clip_image001.gif with nothing connected--you turn the Blue screen down until the set stays on and then very slowly turn it up until you see a slightly Blue screen with or without diagonal trace lines----turn it down slowly until the GREEN screen and trace lines just disappear.

Let me know if you get it to work--Like I said if it is shutting down you may have to slowly turn the screen down a few times to get it to stay on.

TV will not turn On

Call a good TV Tech and have him check for vented capacitors in the DM module or blown pico fuses on the -24 and the +24 volt lines.If fuses are blown,it indicates the convergence amp IC's are bad.The fuses solder into the board.

Tv shuts down after about 5 seconds

Sounds like the green CRT has a short.If you unplug the socket from the green CRT tube (the one in the middle) and power up the TV and it stays on then it will verify that you need a new green CRT.

Green flashes then tv turns off

or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.

Problems with green arching lines

yes there is a small black box with 6 controls on it, take off the bottom front of the tv, behind that you should find a black piece of plastic you can remove by taking out 2 more screws. the black box should be in the upper i don't remember if the top 3 are the screen controls or the focus controls. the rows should be labled, you are looking for the screen control row. the green control is the middle one. you can try turning down the control till you no longer see the green lines. try adjusting in a dark room, it will be easier to see the lines & when they are gone. if you problem is not solved by trying this, then i agree with your tech & the green tube is bad. good luck.
