Re: Picture flickers off and on

I would try adjusting the screen control on the flyback. The flyback can be easly located, find the red wire attached to the top of the picture tube & follow it down to the flyback. on the flyback you should find two controls, one screen & one focus. you sould be able to read the words above each control, only adjust the screen one. slightly increase the control till the picture stays on, if you turn it too much you will get small white lines going across the screen. Now if what i have told you fixes the set, then it is only a tempoary repair. could last days or mothes, maybe years. if it starts to happen again later the set will have to be replaced. this is a sign of the picture tube starting to get a weak. ALSO DO NOT PLAY WITH THE RED WIRE IT CARRES VERY HIGH VOLTAGES EVEN WHAN UNPLUGGED FOR DAYS.

My CRT TV displays a single horizontal white line across the screen. It will flicker and try to display the picture. If you smack it you'll get a quick picture then back to a line. After about 10-15...

The single line means that the vertical deflection doesn't work. And since it is working when you kick the tv or has warmed it's clearly a bad connection - open the case and reseat the wires going to the tube coil.

Screen flickers upon power up

Looks like your picture tube is dying, or there is a bust capacitor(s) inside...I'd recommend taking it to a service shop to get it repaired.

The way I see this problem is this: Your child probably did not do anything to cause this. If your picture comes in for a while and goes out you are likely to have a bad connection in the vertical deflection IC especially if the sound stays on all the time. If the sound goes out too then you have other problems or connections elsewhere. The connections can be inspected and once found resolderd on the solder side of the chassis. Someone with electronic soldering experience is recommended. Hope this helps

You have a bad solder connection in the vertical circuit. This will require you to resolder these bad connections before it blows out the vertical output IC or other parts in the circuit. Do this ASAP before you make a small repair into a large one. If you have no solid state printed circuit board experience, please play it safe and take the set into a pro to do this for you. Good Luck

check for a bad solder at the the tuner section or within the tuner . Bad solder ground within the tuner can cause this fault
