Hello dan82810,

The picture tube or CRT is not the problem, and yes this set is fixable. What has happened is that the vertical deflection circuit has malfunctioned. More precisely the vertical coupling capacitor has malfunctioned (The pooping sound was the capacitor exploding).

Open up your TV (take the back off and unplug the set), and look for the damaged capacitor, it will look puffy or if it has exploded.

To fix this problem you will need the schematic diagram for the TV (can be found at www.servicemanuals.net). Then you will need a multimeter to measure the DC voltages on the vertical output circuit, and finally an oscilloscope to measure the waveforms at the vertical output circuit and the input to the vertical windings of the deflection yoke transformer.

Now what you should basically find is a sawtooth wave at 60Hz which is the drive for the yoke transformer. However since the coupling capacitor is bad you will have the wave at the output of the vertical output stage, but not at the input of the yoke transformer. Use the schematic to find the value of the capacitor that has malfunctioned.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

Loose wires or damaged contacts might be the problem, suggesting to call manufacturer for service support and for a servicer in your area.

Pioneer elite tv turns off from a pop sound and manual says-will


It is most likely the power supply. Do not try to fix this yourself. There are LETHAL voltages inside such a TV, which can persist for WEEKS after it has been turned off.

I lost my picture I still have sound but no picture.


I have a Philips Magnavox Projection TV.

I had dish satelight install on my TV. It worked well for two days, then the picture started showing in a square box. I ffixed the convergence and it seemed okay. The next day I turned on the tv and it had sound, but no picture. When I press the status button, the picture would come on then go right back out. Now I don't have any sound or picture. Here is the model information:

We have a Toshiba rear projection tv and it is no longer showing a picture. When you turn it on it sounds like it's going to start but then cuts out after 2 seconds. The power light flashes green and red...


yes you need to replace the buld look on the back of your tv for model number and serial number call manufacture and see if your tv is still under warranty if it is all you have to do is fax reciept for proof of purchase credit card statement will work also but if not under warranty they can send you the bulb still but you have to pay out of pocket I have a 44 inch lcd and my bulb costs 250.00 and it can last 4 years but I use mine for a computer monitor and always have it on so I get 2 1/2 years out of each bulb. but YES that is what your problem is.
