Hi Jwalden
The picture shrinking is an indicator the the regulated HT power supply rail is going low in voltage resulting in EHT supply for the tube doing the same. . This will relate to component failure in the power supply itself, probably capacitors. It will progress, and eventually the set will stop. To be totally honest with you, it could run to $180-250 to overhaul the power supply and a few other areas of concern in a set this age. They were always a little on the "cheap build" side to begin with, so I would not recommend you spend anything on it, your money would be better put towards a new one. I know that this does not fix your problem, but is advice from a TV tech that knows. Thanks for using FixYa. I am happy to answer any other questions you may have. A FixYa rating of this advice to you is a great reward for the time I have taken to address it with you. Cheers regards rbotek

My microwave stop heating what could it be is it worth fixing


The magnetron is gone, or the inverter board, "if 7 years old or less" To answer your question, not worth fixing, cheaper to buy.

Have a plasma samsung hpt5054 i have sound no picture is it worth fixing thanks


On a plasma that usually means a problem in the power sections. You should be able to get an estimate from a repair shop or Samsung repair depot. On that size of tv it should be cheaper to repair than replace unless it is several years old. Usually on a smaller tv just out of warrenty the cost to repair is worth more than just going out and buying a new tv.

As long as you know your replacement cost and get an estimate you will come out on top.

Freezer only getting 48' and frig side is only at 49 degrees


take the back panel off and see if the fan is running and if not see if it has power to it if it does replace the fan and see if ur problem is solved the coil underneath the fan should not be frozen even if the fan is gone out this could be a sign that the lil black element that runs through the coil is gone out now if all this is good and still same problem ur probably gonna have a freon issue and unless u know how to charge one i advise u call a tech and if its only 6 years old yes it worth trying to fix

The microwave makes a popping noise, then a loud grinding noise


this could be any thing? first ask yourself how old is it???
if its more that 3 years old you would be better off just dumping it as getting it fixed would cost more that its worth??
and there so cheep now too!
however dont go trying to get inside of it to see if you can fix it yourself
there is a lot of very hight voltage in there even if its been turned off for a long time,,this voltage is in the 1000's of volts and it kills
have you ever seen a stun gun working???????????
well this microwave has the stun guns very big brother inside of it,,
it dont stun,,,, it kills! is it realy worth taking a risk for a fuw bucks?
please play it safe

I turned the TV on, a mild 'pop' sound, and it immediatly shut off. Now it won't power on at all. Is it worth fixing? Its 11 years old (July 1998). Thanks for any advice!!


you may have just blown a fuse. check and replace with same size and type. if you smell burning, you fried something, and it may not be worth replaing on a 11 yr old tv.

This is easily reparable by an electronics technician. AND is definitely worth fixing if you use the unit because they simply do not build this type of quality in newer models.
