Shrinking picture Everything else is working fine on the tv, sound,color,inputs,etc...However the picture is starting to curve in from the sides like the shape of an hour glass. Is the tube shot? or is it something less costly?

Color switches to b/w, then a click, then color, then b/w, click, etc.

Good day.

I think your problem is with the crt circuit. It is the one on the rear of your picture tube. Some loose connections may occured in there. Also, check if the flyback is arching. Sometimes, the voltage on the flybach itself causes this.

No Picture on TV

? What is the model # off the back ?

Does the video work on the RF coax cable input?

For instance,as a test,can you hook-up from VCR coax RF out

to TV coax in,put the TV on Chan. 3,play a tape and get audio and video?


Are you matching colors when trying the A/V inputs?Yellow,red,

and white out of DVD to yellow,red and white in on back of TV?

Then select video input on tv===dial "00" or use input button on

original RCA remote. Are you using original RCA remote that

came w/TV ? Do you have the owner/operator manual for the TV?

   Sorry to ask so many  ?????   Let me know how it goes!!  T.
