Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

LG tv - have lost picture, have sound.

The tv died last night. We can get sound for a few seconds, then the TV goes into standby mode. When we try switching the TV off, then on, the same happens.

There was a faint singed/warm smell when this first happened.


Help! Is this a relatively simple thing to fix, or is it so expensive that we should just buy another TV?

no it is not that simple.

no it is not expensive.

no need to buy new tv.


smell might be due to short circuit of some components which may not be that expensive

better to call skilled tech for fixing

 it is not a major problem

it happens so many times.

hope this will help.

good luck.

Picture on 15 year old Trintron comes on briefly then goes black

if the sound goes out its not a tube problem . a bad tube would have no effect on the sound .you problem (my guess) is in the power supply . a modern tv power supply has parts of it that stay on all the time unpluging it is not the problem its when you plug it in ! the power supply gets a JOLT . you might get away with it ,you might not . thats why we install surge arrestors on power plugs and with expensive tvs i recomend a UPS a power unit that keeps the tv powered even wnen the line power is out . thats keeps everthing in the sets nice and even ,so the tv lasts longer ... a modern tv turned off uses about 1.40 in electric a YEAR in standby mode , so what are you saveing if you send you set to the landfill early and have to buy a new one ? over 1.40 in electric ? . turn down you water heater or something else simple dont be blowing out you electronics for the sake of a few cents ..... good luck .... if this answer helped please rate a 3 or 4 , this high rateing will hepl keep me in the paid answer department . thank you

Standby mode intermittently.

Hello, FixYa

I have normal tv model CNT 2588 code 981, remote control was out of order and I tried to buy a new one from many places in UAE, Suadi Arabia & Egypt but I failed due to it is old model and no spare parts. So I use the tv function through Satel Decoder and use tv main power button for swithing on and off. It seems that caused a problem and tv now could not get power to switch on. Would you e-mail me with the repair manual including the Elect.Circuit to try to repair the problem. Also if you can arrange to send me a new remote control model CNT 2588 code 980. Since the TV Picture and sound are still in an excellant condition, please e-mail me you kind response with the cost if any to send you my Address and money.

Thanks in advanced.
