Jmeek: unfortunately there's not much you can do about this one. it's either the red gun in the crt has shorted, because of impurity build-up, or the driver for the red gun is shorted. either way it's repair or throw away time. tv repair shops used to carry a picture tube reconditioner that would zap the color guns in the crt to burn-off the shorts. it's doubtful they would have a socket that would fit your crt, but they might. they could possibly find a replacement for the driver if it's defective. but given the low cost of lcd's, that's i would be going. be sure to recycle the monitor correctly. please don't just toss it in a dumpster. there are computer part recycler's thru-out most of the US.

peace-out

Hi, I had a problem with my Sony CRT television.


The faint background lines are vertical flyback lines. Start your diagnosis by turning the brightness and contrast controls to minimum and view the screen in a darkened room. If you can now see a raster with horizontal lines visible then it is likely that the tubes A1 screen voltage is excessive. The screen voltage is usually within the range of 400v to 600v. Adjustment for this is often part of the flyback transformer. Check all high value resistors
in the screen and focus circuitry. Some of these reistors may be
built into the flyback transformer. As the picture gets brighter the beam current increases, this will eventually cause the X ray protection circuits to trigger shuting off the set. A fault in the video drive circuits to the cathodes of the tube will cause similar symptoms but usualy results in a predominance of one colour, ie
bright red, blue or green raster with flyback lines.

Since when you experience the problem? what is the first initial problem before you got that one now?

Advent TS2766A tv has no picture and a horizontal blue line across the screen


Hello
Only one line across the screen is due to total vertical sweep failure. In all CRT tvs have both vertical and horizontal sweeps to spread the picture to the entire screen. If vertical sweep failure occurs, you will see a horizontal line across the screen, and if horizontal sweep failure happens, you will see a vertical line in the middle of the screen or no lines or a dead tv.
In your TV, now the sound will be ok, I thinks so, and posts this solution.

You just open your tv, and locate the vertical output section in the circuit board. It is very easy to findout. Just see the four wires goes from the deflection yoke [the coil fitted at the neck of the picture tube], there will be four of them, out of which two of them will be thick, usually red and blue coloured, and another two of them will be thin. You just follow the two thin wires, which in turn goes to a plug in adaptor and to the circuit board. Just put the circuit board upside down and follow the two tracks undeneath, which will guide you to the vertical output section.
There you can see an IC screwed onto a metal heatsink. That is the vertical output IC. Just check keenly for any loose solderings on the legs of that Ic. It may happen because, this Ic will heat up when the set works. Prolonged times of heating and cooling may make loose solderings or bad solderings. It is very difficult to locate the exact loose point because some of them may have micro type loose contacts, that can't be detected with naked eye.
You just resolder all the legs of that Ic, by applying a little more solder, without shor circuiting the terminals. Chek whether you have rectified the problem or not. If not check the main supply point leg voltage. If there is no voltage follow the track and find out the fault. If there is voltage, check the voltage at the output pin of that Ic. It must be somewhat half to that of its supply voltage. If main voltage is there, and there is no voltage on the output pin, or that voltage is equal to that of supply voltage, the vertical output IC is defective. Resolder it out from the board and go for a same type and number. Replacing it will solve your problem. There is an other rare chance to get the vertical windings in the deflection yoke to open. Bu it isvery rare, out of 1/1000 of it may happen. It can be checked by continuity measuring of that coins winding ends.
You just go with confidence. Take every precautions we take before working with an electrical equipment. Proceed. You can and you will. Take care. OK.

Advent 32" tv flat screen


It's likely one of two things. There are drive transistors on the CRT board which control the output to the guns, the one that controls the red gun may be open, also check this board for burned resistors. It could also be a bad picture tube although this is less likely. If it is the tube, replacements if available are fairly expensive.

Picture is now a thin horizontal line


now only visible in a thin horizontal line. first of all you reduce brightness to monimum. it just to protect your tv from crt demage. your problem is in horizontal output section as you have mentioned that week or so ago the right and left bottom edges of the picture began to move in like a sideways triangle filled with black so this sympton is due to hor. section problem. your flyback transformer or horizontal output might be defective. but remember check for power supply is ok from surge protector hope this will help.

The screen picture bulges inwardly on the right and the left


you have defective horizontal linearity! replace the capacitor at the hot side mostly 160uf 180V or 160uf 160V.
