Re: RED lamp flakey

When you say skilled I'd STRONGLY suggest be a CET or better to tackle this job or I'd give you a one-in-a-thousand chance of doing it successfully... That said, it's pretty straight forward - the unit has to be torn down to light box level and the crt removed... After disassembly of the coolant chamber from the crt it is recommended by Samsung to install the coolant overflow kit, Samsung bullentin tip # 20040827001. P/N: Aa91-00607a / Bp96-00645a

Was watching TV, heard a pop and the screeen went black. Now when I turn it on, the pwoer light blinks green but their is no picture or audio. The light then starts blinking red

Is is standby light blinking red or any other light? Let me know how many times red standby light blinking after three seconds long pause to provide you helpful info.
It seems pop sound was due to broken lamp, please check lamp inside tv and if it is broken, replace it to solve tv problem.
Hope this will help.

Top left and bottom right images/letters distorted.

I can fix it for $325? 213 880 1795
It was a convergence problem, both chips goes bad bad also look for bad resistors around the circuit? This is not an easy repair for non skilled person? You need to realign it after replacing the chips? Don't be cheap pay someone to do it right?

Sound no picture?

I have no solution for this problem and I'm not sure I can fix it without taking it to a repair shop. The replies I got yesterday did not help.

Red tube going bad???

much to my suprise these tubes need to be re-juvenated with a crt shooter. this does not bode well with the so called king o the hill (sony). although after re-juvenating the tubes seem to hold up rather well.
