Re: no picture or sound

The most common cause for a bowed picture is the convergence power supply module. The module will fail and sometimes blow the fuse. Average cost of repair would be around $100, if you brought it to a tv shop, more for in home service.

Tv is messed up

I got a question.

Do you have any stereo speakers anywhere near your television?

This sounds like something a magnetic field could cause from speakers being too close to the tv.

If so try to relocate them and see if the problem goes away.

42" RCA Projection TV - Sound good, but Picture goes out intermittently.

resolder the vertical output IC . bad solder there can make the CRTs blank for protection and you will lose the picture when the vertical drops out.

Sounds like the blue convergence circuit still not working.

Assuming both IC's are good, look for open soldered-in pico fuse.

Once bowing problem is solved,then convergence should adjust ok.

yes it could ba the cable itself even, but i suspect more the tuner circuit or tuner itself may have bad solder connections. Here is another test for you to try, plug another dvd or vcr, or xbox etc. into the back, using one odf the inputs. See if this works like the built in dvd. if so it will be more likely bad connections in the tuner or surrounding circuit. good luck.
