It wont be worth it, when you change 1, it is strongly sugested you replace all 3, and they cost around 200$ a piece, but just so you know, they cant leak, unless you break the glass at the top

Hitachi 60" Ultravision TV - bad green tube that is leaking


If this has only started to leak recently, get an estimate from a local servicer for a coolant replacement for that tube. The coolant is corrosive and needs to be cleanedup ASAP from any circuit board that it has touched before there is damage. This is NOT a DIY repair. Expect a repair cost in the $300 range for parts and labor. If the set had a good picture prior to this, it may be worth the repair. This is your call. Do not delay however, as any delay will increase the likelyhood that there will be more damage that needs repair.

Sony Wega kdf-50E2000 Keeps turning off and on


Before you replace the lamp I recommend trying to clean/dust the lamp component and lamp plug in area. I had the same problem and was able to resolve it by simply blowing the dust off the lamp components and fan. Use a can of high pressure air to get into the cracks and crevices.

I paid 9.95 for assistance and did not get a responce but charged


From your description it sounds like G2 voltage on the green picture tube is too high.
Are you confident about adjusting it yourself? There are high voltages in places which can kill. I will not take any responsibility of you getting an electric shock so I suggest calling in a qualified TV technician.

Any TV technician should be able adjust this voltage and it should not take long to do it unless the cases are hard to remove and hard to access the flyback transformer where the G2 (screen) adjustment is located.

Otherwise it may be a faulty green picture tube and this is expensive as you need to get the tube replaced.

Hope this helps

Need new green picture tube


If the repair center is an authorized Samsung service center, they should be able to get hte part for you. I don't have parts listings for Samsung sets, but the part numbers should be available from Samsung directly. Since you know the problem, try another service center that is associated with Samsung. Not all independent servicers can get parts from all manufacturers.

Bad color


this is an idication of trouble with the red tube. it might be as simple as a crt board or the tube might need replaced. i would have to open it up and see. the crt could be leaking or the high voltage to that tube might be missing. as a technician i would have to see if the red tube or one or more tubes are powing up.

Need new green picture tube


You dont need a new tube. What you need is to repair the seal on your old tube and replace the CRT coolant fluid. There is a coolant chamber attached to the tube with long bolts with springs on them that contains coolant to prevent your tubes from getting hot. Yours may just need tightening, but I would replace the seal just to be safe as thecoolant can and will destroy your circuit board if its allowed to continue to leak on it.
