Is very possible your picture tube is good,the problem might be a loose conection in the main board,the circuits to check will be the horizontal driver transformer,the output transformer and all overheated components in that area,another possible reason might be a loose conection in the crt board witch is in the neck of the picture tube,if you are familiar with tv service you can try to repair it yourself,you can start by removing the back cover and try to tap on different areas of the chassis to see if it reacts ,do this with a wooden or plastic handle(not metal)and be atentive where you tap when the set reacts so you can go back and check the solder conections,if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help from a servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.

Fading and losing pictures

If your TV has more then 1500-2000 hours of usage chances are the power board is starting to fail due to the amount of heat that the parts are expose to when the TV is on. There seems to be a high failure rate on power supplies due to overheating.
The solution to get the TV working properly will be to have a new power board or repair the on inside your TV.
Let me know if you require further assistance.
