Check the vertcle yoke pins for solder cracks. Check verticle output circuitry resistors and transistors. And also check for Coolant leaks from the CRTs this happens alot. Check capacitors for any signs of sweeling or heat as well.

Try a different source on the tv to see if the tv is toast. Ten years is quite old and tvs have come on a long way since this one. Alternatively try a different tv on the cable box.

Good Day, qfd333;
To find suspected liquid the PCB's, remove the front speaker cover and the small board held on by 5-6 screws. Look at the first 3 to 5" on the PCB. Use bright light it's not always easy to see. If fluid is spotted remove the boards from the back of TV. Use small brush, like old tooth brush, and acetone. You can get acetone from hardware stores
Look for rusted wires or parts and replace as necessary.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

TV screen jumps and rolls, sometimes won't stay on

Try Re-soldering the vertical yoke connection and the vertical output IC. Thats a common problem in that model.
