Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

Faulty tv picture`

When i switch on the set the picture is very jittery and rolls, sometimes freezing for a few secs.

After about 8--10 mins everything settles and the picture is fine thereafter.

Have done the usual switching on and off with mains and leads.

The set is about 2,5 years old.

Hope you can help. kind regards mike.

Re: faulty tv picture`

This is due to loose contact in power supply.

it might be due to some capacitor or print loose in supply.

please also check your plug & socket for loose.

it is not a major problem

good luck.

Sometimes the picture rolls for 30 minutes to one hour and then the picture is perfect. A few times when we turn it on, the picture is okay and then after a few hours, the rolling picture starts. Where is...

The rolling is a bad filter capacitor on the signal board in the set---Any Mitsubishi dealer can look the model up and see known faults including this one---some of the sets when cold---vertical jitter in picture or just menu---If the menu is stable you have a tiny bad cap= weak caps when cold act up and when get hot regain capacitance and start to work.

Sony Trinitron XBR 36 in (TV control on Top Middle of set) (set-up / tv/video / vol / channel / power) when set is powered on the standby/stereo light Continuous blinks red once a second, no pausing -...

after 4 or 5 yrs EHT ( transformer that supplies voltage to CRT TUBE - TV TUBE ) becomes weak - then 1 of the indication is exactly as you have described .....after few seconds picture comes slowly & immediately (after few seconds). it gets off only red light blinks............ solution is EHT ( also called as flyback transformer ) should be replaced....... {{ few details about EHT---- its size will be around 3inch X 2inch X 2inch ---it will have 2 or 3 knobs to adjust focus , brightness ------ at bottom around 10 pins will be there ------- from EHT 1 thick red colour cable goes to CRT TUBE --------- on EHT its part number will be there }} -------- so if user is a technical person having idea about components ( resistors, transistors, diodes, etc ) , having tools like multimeter ( to check components) , soldering iron, soldering lead, flux, desoldering wig ( for removing components), etc also little experience in servicing field( compulsory) ----------------- then user can remove EHT from main board ---- take to electronic shop ----- buy same type EHT --------- fix to mainboard ( knobs on EHT should be adjusted according to picture --- after switching TV --- this adjustment is very important ) ----------iam from bangalore ..since it is very risky job i suggest to contact TV service engineer ------- because they are highly experienced & can fix this component very easily. ------------ [[ sometimes along with EHT another component called transistor ( big in size - situated close to EHT - it will have 3pins - its size will be 1inch X 1/2 inch X 1/2 cm --approximately ---- black in colour ----- fixed to aluminium metal ) --- will also gets deffective --- so this component also should be checked ]] ---- in your case this transistor is good ... because when this component gets deffective then TV won't get '' ON '' in your case only EHT should be replaced.........100% it works normally .....GUARANTEE....... vishnuswamy_4.jpg

Pic freezes, goes dark w/sound then back on

By what you have said your color wheel can cause this when it stops running .Pull back off and watch what is happening when you turn set on.
