Picture fluctuates the picture is nice and clear. it just gets bigger for a few seconds and then goes back to normal.then the picture will get skinny, like a long screen tv, then goes back to normal.if i go to the autoformat on the picture menu and click on it it will go back to normal for a little while.i was wondering if this is a problem that i might be able to fix or if it is a computer or circuit problem.

Steady red light when off.. when I turn it on , the green light will come on and then the picture will come on with sound for only a few seconds and then it goes off again with a stedy red light.

Hi patgeri99,

Your bulb came to its peak burning life and now its dead which sense by the processor and made the unit automatically shuts off. Once replace with new one your unit will back to normal again.

Hope I helped you.

After a few minutes of the t.v being on the picture will suddenly go of as if the T.v. puts itself into standbye mode, once this happens the only way to get the picture back is but switching the T.V. off...

Sure wish we knew which brand and model of set it is, but it sounds like the tv is going into shutdown possibly caused by bad solder connections or a weak component on the circuit board. The only thing you can do yourself on this one is to disconnect the power cord from the wall for a few minutes and hope it clears out any confusion in the microprocessor. Otherwise, you need a service person to go in and check it with test equip. Good luck, Russmann.

Good Day, Armenian;

You may have CRT Coolant on one the boards. LOOK very closely for shiny spot on any of the boards. WHY? Because you are saying the TV is having multiple problems. Let me know.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

TV Picture Goes Black

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
