Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

Our TV shuts off by itself usually during commercials. We have to unplug it, plug it back in and turn it on manually ~ till next commercial. Seems to happen more on the cable channels ~ the main networks seem to stay on. I've taken the back off to clean out any dust and it hasn't helped

Hello,

Since commercials are louder volume-wise (especially with cable more than satellite), my first guess would be that you have a faulty part around the audio amplifier of the TV, and it loads the power supply or creates a high/low that tells the TV micro to turn off. Knowing what brand the TV is helps, but in any case, it probably needs to be referred to a TV repair shop for tracking the part(s) down.

I hope this helps you...

Color on TV changes to black and white, then after awhile changes back


It is possible to be the box, and not your tv. A good way to test is to see if it does it when you are watching a dvd or another source. (game system, blue ray, ect) Hope this helps! Good luck!

Commercial Skip Feature


When a commercial comes on, you press the "Commercial Skip" button on the remote. Then you see a 30-second countdown timer appear on the screen. If you think there will be more than 30-seconds of commercials, then press the button more (each time you press adds 30 seconds to the on-screen timer -- usually I press it 4 to 5 times). The timer stays counting down on the screen while you change channels during the commercials to see what else is on. When the timer counts down to 0, it is erased from the TV screen and the TV automatically changes you back to the channel it was on when you pressed the commercial skip button. I use this feature a lot! I wish all TV's had it built in. Some universal remotes have a similar (but more awkward feature) where the remote has the timer inside it, and it sends a signal back to the TV when the count is up, but I don't think this would work as well.

Commercial skip/blackouts


Sounds like you're blessed to have a tv like that! Seriously: Some sets have settings that will cut down the sound during a commercial. Haveyou looked at your owner's manual? This tv may have setting to cut out the picture also when commercials come on. From a technical view point generally commercials have stronger signals than regular programming. This may be overloading your set. If this is the case, then you need to have it checked by good technician. A poorly operating power supply (not regulating properly) could possibly cause a problem like this. Also automatic gain control circuits could be not working properly. Stargazer

Hitachi skips over commercials & flickers


If by saying the "aspect ratio changes" you mean the picture shrinks from top and bottom, I would suspect an intermittent short inside one of your picture tubes. The commercial skip function is not causing a problem here. It is the rapid change from dark to light that I believe is putting an extra strain on a weak or defective picture tube.

Toshiba 36A43 36" turning off and jumping on certain shows/commercials


I need to know a bit more. Does to sound give any noises when the picture is jumping? Reason is this would suggest the high voltage breaking down, which could be caused by dust or very high humidity, so check the location of the set. If dust has collected inside you need to clean it out with a long artists brush, but beware if you do not know about high voltage danger. Dust can also cause overheating and shutdown. Is it only the satelite box which causes trouble? If so then you may need to alter (attenuate) the input level of the Video signal. Could you contact the dealers?
