Not enough info, but I'll take a stab. What you are describing is known in our trade as a thermal, since it is related to the warm-up of your unit.

If your set is a triple gun CRT unit, the convergence ICs have probably come unsoldered and are making intermittent connections in there depending on the heat of warm-up. Those ICs generate a tremendous amount of heat and in CRT tech it is not unusual for their legs to come unsoldered, after years of expansion and contraction of the solder joints themselves.

Getting them resoldered again before the ICs go bad will get you out of the woods and back on track with completely reliable performance from then on, but until that happens you must not allow your set to stay running for any length of time in its bad condition. Doing so will croak your ICs and you will have to take the further step of getting them replaced and having your convergence retightened and possibly your geometry redone as well.

LCT TV picture blurry with black smudges until it warms up


No easy way short of monitoring with a scope and or voltmeter, based on age of set I would first "look" at all the filter caps in the main power supply--bad ones when they get hot can regain some function:

After tv is on for approx 20-30 mins it starts to make a loud high pitched squeal or whine. once turned off for approx 10-15 mins can turn it back on for another 20-30 mins before squeal will return....


Sounds like a problem I had with a Polaroid t.v. Take the cover off the back and look for capactors that are buldging on the top. The top should be slightly concave. If they are convex at all, you can buy new one at Radio Shack and replace them for under $5.00

Xbox 360 issue.


Hello Snarker it sounds like you have a bad AV cable, try replacing it with a different one( It will costs $5-10). If there is still a problem try removing your HDD ( the hard drive which is removed from the top of your xbox 360). If neither of those seem to fix your screen's issue, you may have an internal device that has overheated or come loose, I would recommend try leaving your xbox on and see if red rings appear on your console Like this(they might be in a different idea I am just letting you know where to look) 9ca118f.jpg. If they do you can send your xbox back to Microsoft wait 2-4 weeks and get it back for free.

I hope that helped and if you need anymore assistance please let me know.
