I have same problem with mine, the power button turns red (as usual) but no picture. When i turned mine on last night it made a crackle noise and thats how it all started. I can even hear the normal sounds it makes as if it were turning on, but still no picture. Its a great tv I would hate to throw away. I want to fix it myself any help would be appreciated!
I have the same exact TV as you and it has the same problem. I took the whole tv apart and checked the obvious things i.e. fuse, loose board, etc. etc. Bottom line - it looks like the flyback transformer needs replacment This is what provides the picture tube with power/voltage, etc. The part itself is ~200.00 and the labor will be about $150.00 - $200.00. Thats what you would pay if its only the transformer. Usually when the transformer goes, it takes other components along with it. I am bringing my set to the recycling center since It's not worth fixing. Went to Costco and bought a 42" LCD tv for less than 900.00. Instead of spending upwards of $300.00-400.00 to fix a 13 yr old standard tv, go for the gusto and upgrade to High Defination TV with the appropriate Cable company box and you'll never regret it!!!!
What a wake up call to watch TV now!!!!!!!!! Good luck to you...
I just had this problem fixed. In my case, it was because the insulation on the CRTs was cracked, and when it would warm up, the shielding would separate and would let 5000 volts arc across the main board. This, obviously, damaged the board. The tech didn't catch the arcing right away, so they replaced the main board twice before they used a high-temp RTV to patch the insulation.
The power-cycling was a result of the damaged board.
The point of this story is that the broken part may be a symptom of the real problem.
You can set the conversions manualy by going in to the sevice menu. Like you sed , you want to throw it away so you can try to set the convertions and if you fail you lose nothing. Get the service mode codes from this site, yust searsh for it. If you are clever , you wil fix your own tv, without ripping it appart.
It sounds like a relay switch has gone on it. Have you got a friend who could help you in this field. The repair man may charge you more than its worth. I sympathize with you it would be a shame to throw it away but hundreds are doing just that every day ... they are the rich ones!
