Question about Toshiba 27AF41 27" TV

1 Answer

Flashing in and out picture

This morning I turn on my TV and the picture basically fades in and out. I turned it on and off several times, and the rate at which the fading in and out was happening would change - sometimes happening at a faster interval, sometimes slowing to happening only maybe 3 times a minute. At this time the TV is on and I can sense a slight in and out of focus happening.

Sony Trinitron model # KV-27HFR- the picture is fading, is there a way i can fix that?

From your descrition the problem is the picture tube, over a period of time the guns build up crud reducing the emission on the front screen which in turn causes fading and progressively gets worse until viewing becomes impossible. One possible solution is to have the picture tube rejuvinated by a tv tech to buy more time out of the set, but the improvement may last a few days to several months or more.

After the tv has been off for only a few minutes and you turn it back on the picture will flash on and off for 5-10 minutes and eventualy it stays on and works fine till you turn it off again.

Hmm, you have 2 possibilities that I can think of. First, if the picture color and brightness seem relatively normal, I would replace the CRT driver on the C board. This is attached to the back of the CRT via the pin socket. Second, if you notice a darker picture or faded color during the cycling period... things are not as rosy. This is a good indicator of a High GR (gas ratio) condition. Basically, your CRT is leaking.

Sony Trinitron screen flashing

The picture tube is starting to fail. The increased screen voltage allows it to stabilize at the expense of color quality. Sorry to say, but it is time for a replacement.

If color spots are still there, picture tube need to degaussed / demagnetized.

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.

Sony 27"TV will not turn on

The picture tube on your tv is dead, you need to replace it. It probably will be worthing just purchasing a new set, because the cost of repairing it will be close to the purchase of a new one.
