Your red crt bulb is starting to go bad. somtimes you can tap lightly on the neck of the red and the prob. usually short term will go away. if not tube replacement is necessary. this is sometime a pricey repair. but worth it! john

Samsung ps42a457 picture disappeared whilst watching,sound still present

Change input device to some other like a DVD player and see.
Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry.
If problem persists, call in a qualified service technician.

After just a week from buying, the sound of Coby 32 LCD flat TV disappear. The store where I bought it wants me to pay $60 for repair. Can I repair it myself?

No idea to be honest ,perhaps this is a handling charge for sending it to the agent so try finding the agent and take it their yourself with the receipt .

Red arching lines showing up on screen promident when a dark background is present

Red picture tube needs screen voltage adjust. Open fornt or back of TV and look for a black square looking box with adjustment knobs. Look for red screen adj and slowly turn rt or lft until lines just disappear. If screen goes too bright tv will shut down, just turn back on again and retry

TV goes blank - no sound or picture

Sounds like a bad capacitor or two in the power section. Do you hear a hissing sound also?

The picture has disappeared but the sound is working

Check the lamp first, especially if its the original. Also, observe the red LED on the front panel. It will often blink a code which can identify the problem.
