Picture tube failure is rare problem. Your problem is powersupply failure and short circuit in deflection area. This is quite common problem. My sugestion is before you got this problem picture clarity and color clarity is better perfomance in your satisfaction means repair is better. Otherwise replace it.

Tv went crack while watching. Picture and sound went out & red light flashing.Waited a min,turned off and back ok with picture and sound returning concerned if we should continue using or not?


Hello,
As long as you can see and here the picture with no problems you should be fine. The tv's put it heat which make things expand and contract. Sometimes things creek and crack. I've had two tv's that do that. Don't hesitate to keep a fire extinguisher handy though along with some alarms.(houses should have these at all times anyways)

sounds like a blown internal fuse. unless you are savvy with a soldering iron you'll need to take it to a TV repair man. i assume its out of its warranty period?

Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV popped, bad picture and vibrates


The pop was a high voltage arc of electricity that blew some vital components on the main circuit board. The unit is of no use now. Repairs are far more than replacing the TV.

The problem is a shaky picture with a static line that's vertical when watching regular TV. This problem does not happen when not watching in HD through our Myth TV (DVR). Closed captioning does not...


Regular TV, you mean by the aerial and internal tuner, if it is like that, then it is a problem with the TV tuner board.
If by regular TV you mean an external TV box, then the TV box is faulty or you have a cable or ferquency problem.

WON'T POWER UP


I had the LCD repaired. It turns out that the power supply went out. It cost me a few hundred bucks but it was worth the repair rather than buying a new one for 3x as much.
