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.

Re: picture is fadeing
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.

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
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.

the problem, lies on the flyback ,, on the flyback there two adjustment, the screen and focus that was writtten , adjust only the screen slowly untill screen of your tv back to normal.....fading because over saturation of voltage, adjust the screen trimmer counterclocwise....
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.
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.
