Hello,

I am happy to assist you. If I am not mistaked about your model, I know of a fix for some models and that for sure. According to your description, I know of this descripition and if it fits the fix I know about then I am sure to tell you the problem.

You have to take the back off the set (UNPLUG TV) and look on the neck of the picture tube on the circuit board there is a resistor (do research on what a resistor is on the net) that opens up and it is a 10 ohm resistor and the color code is brown black black. It is about half inch long with wire coming out both sided sitting straight up position from the circuit board. Can be measured with an ohm meter. You can get 5 of them for a dollar at Radio Shack and it must be soldered in after taking the old one out being careful not to break the printed circuit.

Your symptom should be also getting brighter and brighter and then shutting off.

Hope this helps

Picture goes black with gray fuzzy lines ~ 1/2" apart horizontal.


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

Horizontal lines shadowed / blured picture after 20-30 minutes


There are some semiconductors or capacitors that are leaky. Might need thorough check up inside the TV.

Won't stay on


The quick horizontal line through the center of the screen usually denotes a failure in the vertical output circuit, and that would keep the set from staying on. You would have to take it to a repair shop for repair.
