Picture looks dirty in corners

TV is 6 yrs old and still working good but it looks dirty in the corners of the screen.  Tried to contact a Toshiba service center...won't get into that.  Just need to know how to clean the inside of the screen.  Not afraid to do it ourselves!!

My 27" ( aprx 6 yrs old)Tv first had only a horizontal line across the screen about 1/2" wide, good sound but no picture, now it only clicks like its turning on and off when you plug the tv in, no pictue...

It has gone into a self protect mode where it will shut down because you have a fault in the frame stage of the TV (horizontal line). This will most likely be a failure of the frame output IC. Replace this & you should restore the normal picture.

My dad and I fixed the TV/Video problem over the weekend using one of the solutions suggested. Make sure you stay away from the red wire running from the back of the tube to the circuit board.

1. Take the cover off the back of the TV.
2. On the bottom of the TV is a circuit board that is mounted on top of a plastic tray. Remove the cables running from the speakers by squeezing the tab on the white plug and pulling them up and off the board.
3. Looking at the back of the TV, pull the board+tray out (barely secured in there) and flip it 180 degrees so you're looking at the front of the board.
4. Desolder and remove the TV/Video push button. It's labeled on the PCB, and should be the second button in from the left.
5. Place the tray back in the TV and make sure the other buttons still remaining on the baord are aligned with the buttons on the front of the TV.
6. Put the cover back and you're done.

TV works as good as new again. Of course I can't use the TV/Video button on the TV itself, but the remote handles that fine. 20 minutes max, and no repairman needed.

Brown spot in picture

you might have a couple of dry joints, and you might also have a bad PTC inside that degauses the screen when tv starts up. Please try another good tech for a service. Patrick

I could be wrong, but, from your description it looks like a cold solder, most probably in the Filament Heater circuit. If you are well versed in Solid State Electronics, I suggest you look for a loose solder or joint. Shut OFF the TV, Open the rear cover and chech for any dry dolder or loose coonections. Start with the CRT Neck PCB. Follow the tracks from the two Heater Pins (Marked H H) on the base). Also, gently remove the Neck PCB gently from the Picture tube, and (very carefully, mind you!) clean the Picture tube Contact Pins. Again, very slowly and gently, replace the PCB. Try your TV again. Let me know if the problem is solved. As for the second problem, ( less brightness) how old is your TV? Over time the emission from the Picture tube Electrodes becomes less, and picture quality detoriates. If set is over 6-7 yrs old, or if you are a heavy user - that is, you have your TV switched on for 6-8 hours a day, it is time to go for a trade-in. But, if you are very attached to the TV, you can always take it to a service shop, where they will re-condition the Picture Tube for a modest amount. It's life will get extended by a couple of years.
