Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

TV shuts down

The set will come on, then picture will start pulling in on the right side, then shut down in about 20 minutes. I had a similar problem with it about a year ago and found a service letter saying to replace the 2455 capacitor. I did this and unit has worked fine until now. I thought my solder joint may have come loose, so I resoldered it but no luck. I am a very experienced mechanic but a novice on televisions. Any help would be appreciated.

73" Mitsubishi DLP. turned on the tv and got only sound, no picture. after a minute it would shut down and red light would pop on the front. replaced bulb and hooked it back up. now it turns on but af

Try cleaning the little fans that keep the bulb cool, the temp sensor will shut it off so not to damage the bulb , the winning sound may be the fan going bad or not working like it should.

Model R61Wh76 projection tv turns on then right back off after few seconds sometimes stays on for few minutes

Try the following- Before you turn it on, set a large fan ("breeze box") or similar behind the set and aim it toward any lower openings you see.
If this lengthens the time before it shuts down, then a cooling fan normally found in the lower cabinet area is not running. Those sets can have significant hot areas and may have a thermal shutoff to prevent fire in case of a fan failure.

Hi I have a problem with my philips crt tv...can u assist me? It is a 2003 TV set and just powers off after every 5 minutes... it starts off normally but all of a sudden it shuts down... I need to start it...

Sounds similar to a problem I had , haveing bought and install components to repair/upgrade the power supply I still had the same problem. I solved the problem by adjusting the LOPT line output transformer be carefull of the high voltages even when powered down, the lopt has one adjustment just turn it as little as possible, power up and see it solves your problem, I'm not sure in which direction but try anti clockwise first. Mind only needed the smallest of adjustments. Make a note of where it is before you make any adjustments. My TV been as good as gold for a couple of years now

I have a 42" Samsung DLP that makes noise that sounds like it's coming from the fan. The sound starts after the TV has been on for 20-30 minutes; it's a winding type sound and continues until after the TV...

These models usually suffer from a bad color wheel. You will know that the color wheel is at fault if the sounds goes away right when the lamp shuts off. Look at the back of the set and watch for the lamp to shut down. The color wheel is not a consumer replaceable item.

Our Samsung HL-P4663W DLP is makes noise and shuts off

It is the color wheel, inside the light engine. The bearings get dirty and makes it harder for the wheel to spin causing that whin.

Sony KV 20S40 20" tv flutters, reduces in size and then shuts off

The set most probably has cracked solder joints in one of the deflection circuits, which is pretty common. The picture tube and major components are fine. A good tech can quickly resolder the main board and that should not cost too much. If your set came into my shop I would charge about $50 but ask around, the shops in your area will vary.
