Question about Mitsubishi CS-40507 40" TV
I've had this TV for ten years with no problems what so ever. A few months ago I noticed that the picture was blurry when I first turned on the set. It would clear up after being on for a few minutes. Then the picture began to overshadow black with a red haze. No adjustments would correct the redness. Then while watching a movie, the picture began to dim and slowly faded to black. The sound was still playing so I knew the movie was still on. After a few minutes, the picture slowly came back. It never got all the way back to normal brightness before it started to fade again to black. And it's been black ever since. I don't know where to begin. Any ideas? Is this TV worth fixing? Or should I turn it into a boat anchor? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
It seems your set has a loose conection in the high voltage circuits,in fact by now it should have many loose conections in different areas like the power supply and the horizontal deflection circuits,if you are familiar with tv service you can use the information as the first step to take,some of the loose conections are hard to see even for the trained technician but the one giving you this problem should not be hard to see,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and call for assistance from a servicer a least for an estimate.
