All Dots, no clear picture

I have had this TV from Sept 2002. But this problem has got me stumped. When I turn on the TV, I have all the colors (red, blue, green, etc) in dots, but no clear picture. Sounds and all the effects are there (color shading, etc) It seems that the picture is scramble? Any thoughts???

Might be the Flex Converter Module, They have issues at about this age. I think there are some bad caps in the module, dont know for sure always sent in for rebuild. If you dont know alot about these, these toshibas are a pain to pull apart and back together working, you might want a professional to do the work.

I have a panasonic color tv. Model # CT-27L8SG, sept 2003. Recently , when I turn it in it says Video 1 but not sound or picture.


Do you have anything plugged into your video 1 input? If so, is there a signal reaching your set's input? Try other inputs and see what happens.

How much does picture tube for 42 inch flat screen Sanyo TV cost


There is no picture tube in a modern flat screen TV.
And unless it's physically broken, it's usually something else that has failed and not the screen.
A picture tube is a CRT (cathode ray tube) that sends electrons from the back to the front to light up different color phosphorous dots.
A modern flat screen TV on the other hand is LCD (liquid crystal display) that turns on and off to allow backlighting through multi colored filters. (LED TV also uses a LCD screen, the only difference is the backlighting is LED and not fluorescent lamps.)

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.

Can i realine the lens myself it has a yellow tint and yhe lettering is out of focus


If you have yellow coloring on everything, this is not a lens alignment problem. Either you have a color balance problem (weak blue) or the coolant fluid in one or more CRTs is going bad. The coolant liquid is supposed be clear, but with age it breaks down and turns yellow.

First, unplug the set and remove the back. Use a mirror if you have to, but look down at the top of each CRT using a bright light. They should be colored red, green or blue, with no yellow to muddy the color. That's a quick check on the coolant condition.

You can replace the coolant, but be very careful not to spill any inside the set. Broken-down coolant can short out electronics and cause a lot of damage to the circuitry, especially in the high-voltage sections. Some people prefer to remove the CRTs from the set for this process, but that is a considerable amount of work. Others use kits with pumps to remove the coolant, and work inside the set with reasonable precautions - if there is enough room. There are a number of good tutorials on-line, or at least there were when I last looked two years ago.

I recommend getting the color right before attempting the focus. Bad coolant may scatter the light and fuzz up the picture, so check that out first and post back what you find.

If you have yellow fringes on otherwise normal colored objects, the blue convergence is off. This will also make lettering appear out of focus. Most RPTVs have a procedure for bringing up a convergence pattern (a grid of dots) using the remote control. The dots should all be white or have very little color fringing. Follow the directions, and make small adjustments, then check the effects all around the picture. Correcting one section may cause a change elsewhere. Use a ruler to make sure the dots stay in the right place; otherwise you may end up with a distorted picture.

Caution to other readers: do not try to adjust convergence if you have a "bow-tie" shaped picture in one or more colors. This indicates a convergence amplifier failure, which must be fixed first.
