Question about Toshiba 13A26 13" TV

1 Answer


Hi I have a Sylvania Model # 6427TF . When I turn the TV on the picture is normal for a few minutes and then it turns really bright green with no picture. After a short time it will shut off. The sound continues to work and is recieving the station still.
Would this be an IC or something like it that I can replace?
Or is this the tube?
If its an IC or something like this that I can purchase and then replace could anyone tell me an exact location and part # ? Or if someone has a repair manual would it be possible to get a copy?
I have a 19 inch sylvania which is around the same year for parts but this is a 27". Would IC's and such possibly be swappable?
Thank You's Again
And thank you's again for when you helped with the 60" philips (Its still going strong).

I have a 19 inch sylvania which is around the same year for parts but this is a 27". Would IC's and such possibly be swappable?
Possibly; I'm not familiar with either of your sets but there are several places ths could happen and in one of them, it would use a fairly large IC with 26 pins. Common older part numbers are:
- M51387 - LM1205 - LM1207
All of these vary somewhat from each other but are all the same pin count and all handle RGB signals. If the two sets both have one of those numbers and are the same, these can be swapped. The latter two differ in their bandwidth; LM1205 - 130 MHz, LM1207 - 85 MHz. The 1205 can replace the 1207 in most circuits.
The above would be the 'nicest' problem, others are more difficult to diagnose: 
- Failed green final drive - this would be on the CRT base board and a transistor that is intermittantly shorted   - A capacitor working with that transistor is shorting  The two problems above could also be in an area that is using much the same components in both sets. - A short internal to the CRT between the green grid and its cathode. This one can also be intermittant. The cathodes have a coating that can peel away from the metal tube and produce a high resistance short between cathode and green control grid, bleeding off the negative bias of the control grid.  This is a tough one to verify as one should have a thorough background in this area of electronics and preferably a bit of test equipment not found in most garages.
The more I think about it, the more convinced I am that this probably isn't in the range of DIY enthusiasts.
If you can find any TV repair left in your area, I would even recommend that you have this repaired instead of racing out to buy a new flat screen of ANY brand name. Do some research here at Fixya and look for 'flat screen TV problems' or LCD, plasma or projection TV. All of these are crapping out awful early in life and there are millions of unhappy consumers out there who have spent billions of dollars to upgrade for the coming HDTV changeover and their sets are already broke before it happens. Hopefully, you got at least one of the taxpayer funded "coupon eligible" converters.
We have ours for our two older sets to use when our pretty big screen TVs take a dump.

It can be one of two items. The green output transistor or the green cathode has developed a short.

My flat screen Sylvania TV is flashing different colors what's wrong

Better late than never. The problem is that your TV is in the service mode. There are many ways this can happen. But, lets just get down to fixin this! With the original remote and the TV on. If the TV will not shut off, do this. Press the left cursor button on the remote, followed with pressing the right cursor. Power off the TV with remote, or press off button on TV.

Secondly, your TV will power on and off. But you have flashing colors. Do this. With the original remote and TV on. Press the up cursor button, on the remote, followed with pressing the down cursor. Power off TV with remote, or press off power of TV. Thanks for asking me, Matt of Martins TV Repair.

My LCD tv model LN46A650A1FXZA picture turns green after about being on for 5 minutes. Then is gets fuzzy and green

I have the same issue. TV is ~ 2 yrs old. Ruled-out cable-box & HDMI cables (green present in menu mode with no cables attached).

Screen turns mostly green, with a crappy picture. After a few days, a normal picture just appeared. Today I powered-on, the green screen stuff came up, then a minute later a good picture for about 20 minutes, back to green-stuff for 10 seconds, then good picture.

My sylvania 19' tv (model #LC195SL9A) keeps going to standby instead of turning on

I was having this same problem with this same model. I would turn it on, the green light would blink a few times, then it would go into standby. After repeating this 10-15 times it would finally turn on. I called customer service and they said to try resetting the TV by unplugging it for 30 minutes. If that didn't work, they said to call a service center to see if they could figure it out.

Well I unplugged it for 30 minutes, plugged it in, turned it on and Whalla! It works! I am so glad it wasn't something else.
