Mistubishi Diva Horizintal Strip Picture on Tube

Hi, I have a Mitubishi Diva 35inch CRT TV (purchased 1995-1996??)which seems to have a tube problem which seems to be intermitent. The picture seems to minimize of a inch wide strip across the centre of the screen (goes from edge to edge) this a tube problem?? It seems that sometimes turning the tv off for a while and turning it on seems to clear the problem....but is seems to be happening more regularly now... Can anyone help me fix this or understand the problem?? Cheers Anton

Re: Mistubishi Diva Horizintal Strip Picture on Tube

Nope, the good news is that it is NOT a Tube problem! From your description, it looks more like a Cold solder in the Vertical Output stages (80% probability. Another possibility is dried out Electrolytic Capacitors in the same stages, or in the Power supply Line to the Vertical Output Stage. Nothing you can do, unless you know solid state electronics. Better get a good Technecian to have a look. he will locate the Cold solder quickly enough, and do a resolder.

My Panasonic CT-32SC14 takes about 5-30 minutes for the picture to be displayed, and the color is red hued/high contrast. Adjusting the color controls helps, but its not a great picture. The longer the set...

You have to check the picture tube base socket. After some years of use the contacts of the base socket will become bad (normally the screen pin and focus pin). Just replace the CRT socket it will solve your problem. You can find the CRT base socket on circut board at the end of picture tube neck. Pull the circuit board straight to back,do not shack. It will damge the picture tube pins.And replace the socket with the same type. You will get it from any of the electronic spare part shop near to you. Remember one thing remove the socket from the circuit and keep it with you as sample when you are going to purchase a new one, Because there are different types of CRT sockets are avilable. Purchase one which is similar.

I have a Philips/Magnavox Smart Series CRT Tube TV. It has no picture at all (black screen-no menu-nothing) THE SOUND IS FINE. Set was working fine night before...:? Purchase in 1999. Is there something I...

If the picture tube must work properly, the LOT [Line Output Transformer] must be functional. In your set, now the line output transformer is not working. Check whether the 3 filaments in the neck of the picture tube are glowing. If it does, the LOT is working, because the filament voltage are dertived from one amoung the LOT windings. If it does not, the LOT said above is not woking. There are many reasons for this fault. If line output transistor has damaged LOT will not work. LOT is one which is a step-up transformer, ofcourse, which in turn supplies all the voltages needs to the picture tube. It has a long wire connected to the top of the picture tube body, with a clip and a rubber boot. You ahve to check all the voltages to that component, and the frequency of horizintal out put transistor. Just pull out the board, turn it upside down, and note carefully if there is any loose or bad solderings at the LOT side circuits. Resolder most of the soldering joints there, by applying a little more sodler, becuse the components of these side will heat up while working, and there is possibility to get the soldering points to get loose contacted. Check this first. If it does not help you, get it repaire by any experienced service technican. If you have some knolege in the fundementals about how a TV works, you yourself can do it at home. Wish you good luck. OK>

Screen is turning purple and green dose this cost lots to fix?

It sounds like your tube Shadow Mask may have got magnetised and need to be degaussed.

Turn off your TV at the mains and unplug it for at least two to three hours. Longer the better. After that time power up your TV it should degauss the tube at power up.

Worth a try before you give up on it. Or else get your picture tube replaced. It may be more economical than purchasing a new television. Also try to have the picture tube of an old color T.V as modern picture tubes lacks quality when compared to older ones. But check those tubes thoroughly before buying it.

Sony Trinitron Picture Tube replacement

I think that you will find the picture tube to be more expensive than a replacement TV, if it is still available (unlikely). That being said, it is also unlikely that the tube itself is the problem, The more common problem is the horizontal output transistor or the flyback transformer. Either part should still be available for a reasonable cost. Check with a local servicer for the part numbers and costs. These are common parts.
