Question about Emerson EWF2704 TV

2 Answers

Picture is fadeing

I have an Emerson 27 inch flat screen crt TV about 4 years old and the picture has started fadeing over the last month and keeps getting worse. I have a clear and sharp Comcast cable signal. Is this a repaiable problem or is my TV history? I live in Alvin, TX and there are no repair shops here and I am disabled and can't move it.
Thanks
Dave Hearn

The CRT means color picture tubes. These tubes will wear out through time. In order to bring your picture back, you will have to replace the tubes. If you do it yourself, it is affordable but time consuming and the knowledge of electronics, otherwise a shop will charge $250 min to fix it.

    I would get a new one. The price to repair one of 4 years or older is at least half what it would cost for another one. Make sure all cables are good and tight.

    I would try new cables. If that doesn't fix the problem than I would get a new tv

Hi!

Please tell me are you using a HDMI cable? Try to check out for loose component wire connections.
Are you using a grounded supply(3 wire connector)?

Please ask for further clarifications.

Thanks

    Just unplug the power cord for 4 hours; then plug back in and turn on from the front panel. Do this twice in 24 hours.



    Try banging on the set when the picture is poor?

    Sometimes they develop loose wiring or cold solder joints, and you will come to know if there are any bad/cold solder joints.



    If you have S-video or hdmi cable try using them and if its a bad cable you will come to know that.



    Please ask for further clarifications.



    Thanks

When i turn my tv on the sound is great but the picture is very narrow.My tv is at least 8 yrs old.


something similar to this happened to my old T.V, with mine it started to go wrong colours, the screen started to fade, with it being 8 years old, you may just need a new one, they will eventually fully break, so its best to get a new T.V

My 27 inch emerson flat tube tv only shows the picture in a thin strip how do i fix it back to normal


You will need to replace the Horizontal IC around $80 bucks for the parts and labor. What happen here is when the Horzontal ic gives out the screen basically folds to the middle. Do not shoot the messanger here but have the TV looked at by a professional locally.

I hope this was Very Helpful to you today please leave your feedback and ratings.

Need a romote code for HRS URC-383 for my emerson 27 inch flat screen.


If you are using Sky Remote then you can try to use these codes 0742, 0205 or 0206 for you Emerson TV which will work on all versions of the handset.

these are usually generic codes and may well work on the HRS URC-383 remote as well

Sylvania 27 inch stereo flat screen tv


This problem sounds like a short inside the picture tube itself unless a driver transistor failed that drives the red gun in the CRT. You may have to take it to an authorized repair facility if the picture tube is still in warranty.

Faded Picture


I would have to say it does sound like the CRT is reaching its end. The thing that points this out that the picture gradually gets a little bit better as it warms up. It most likely isn't worth the cost to fix it.
