Question about Spectra KT2113 TV
She turns on the tv and it tries to stay on but shuts off in a mater of seconds.It's a Spectra Model No.KT2113. What could be the problem?
This is an indication of a possible High Voltage problem, your set has what is called a shutdown circuit which detects excessive current which may cause X-Radiation to occur. The problems that may cause this are a short circuited Integrated High Voltage Transformer, a shorted circuited or open protection capacitor, or a defective Horizontal Output Transistor. To be sure you can buy the schematic and with a multimeter you can examine the voltages (power on) and resistances (power off and unplugged) of the components just mentioned. If you do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest that you have a TV repair technician look at the set and give you an estimate on it repair.
I hope this helps,
