Re: Wavy White and Grey lines then nothing
The Flyback transformer needs to be replaced on the Deflection Board. It has the big red wire coming out of it going to the picture tube. Becareful with that. Some of them hold a nasty charge waiting to bite someone. Wont kill ya, but it hurts.

This could be attributed to tuning reception of your tv. If your using antenna only, it is most probable. If cable, check your line.
If this is a crt type, moving that tv with that size could somehow bend its circuit board. Loose connection is a probability. Could be some minor component is detached from solder. This can be attributed to tuner and vertical IC.
some type of electrical feedback try upgrading your cables or tightening the ones you have. what might work best is a line conditioner i filters out any feedback you may be getting and cleans your power supply they cost from 50.00 and up best buy or circiut city both carry them or online as well
Did the TV get pink with the wavy lines all at once, or did it start out gradual? If all of a sudden, then a defective part on the CRT control board or the picture tube itself could be going bad along with some components in the video section of the set. Probably not a cheap and easy fix I'm afraid.
You apparently have a high voltage arc.
Possibly the anode lead to your picture tube.
Also the flyback transformer could be arcing.
If you're not experience with tv repair, you need to have a tech check it for you. The circuits operate at very high voltage and if you get into it you can get a possibly fatal electrical shock.
Be careful !!!
A repair like this is in the vertical drive/output section of the TV set. It could be a simple capacitor causeing this problem or a combination of the capacitor and the output IC. A repair like this should not exceed 120 to 150 US. Is it worth that to you? How much can you replace it for? Good Luck
