Green and black tv

I have a 36" Toshiba tv- tube. I bought it about 6 years ago. it recently posed a problem and im wondering if its worth fixing. the color went out of the picture and turned green and black. where it should be black and "white" it is green. is this a color jet and is it repairable for a reasonable price?

Thanks.

SOURCE: Constant changes in picture colors.

It is a 20" TV set and will most likly, im afraid to tell you, cost more to fix then it is worth. The problem is a bad Picture tube, an intermittant CRT socket or the video jungle IC is intermittant. If you want to invest in an estimate, check out first if it will go towards the repair, as then maybe you can get it fixed at a good price, as long as the picture tube is not the problem Good Luck

SOURCE: Toshiba Color Television....now picture is black and white

Good day.
The missing color issue can be resolved by resoldering the loose contacts in your units circuitry. Your unit is still worth to be fixed.

Response is highly appreciated.

This is a vertical circuit problem that is either bad connections on the vertical IC or a defective IC. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. Look for a small flat IC attached to a heatsink with about 9-11 pins. It may be marked LA7837 or something similar. Try resoldering the pins first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the IC. There may be defective caps in the circuit as well, but those don't usually cause complete vertical failure. If the picture does not return fully, update this and we'll continue on to the next step.

SOURCE: My Sony trinitron tube Tv 36" seems to be going (its 10 years old

no ....the tube will end up after 20 yrs in 10 yr old sony...
it is worth if u fix it. randomly going black means...horizontal driver trans former is the problem..or any loose contact with the 110 volt supply to that transformer,,or any loose contact with line o/p transformer.. (horizontal driver transformer may be gone
then tv behaves like this) if any other parts gone tv wont come back.... there may be a loose contact call a service pro..

Sony KP-51WS500 lossed it's green color...


FIRST YOU NEED TO LOOK INSIDE THE UNIT FROM BEHIND WITH THE COVER OFF AND SEE IF THE TUBES ARE LIT. AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TUBES BY THE CIRCUIT BOARDS, SEE IF ALL 3 ARE GLOWING ORANGE,(FILLAMENTS). IF THEY ARE ALL THE SAME THEN LOOK INTO THE LENSES AT TOP AND SEE IF THERE IS ANY LIGHT INSIDE. THESE SETS ARE COMMON TO HAVE BAD SOLDER CONNECTIONS ON THERE CRT BOARDS. EITHER LOST THE FILLAMENT CONNECTION OR LOST THE VIDEO DRIVE SIGNAL. LET ME KNOW, WE CAN GO FROM THERE. CAN YOU USE A SOLDERING IRON?

PANASONIC 36" TAU --- NEED HELP


Sounds terminal. Companies build things with "planned obsolescence" in mind. In other words. You buy a TV today, and the warranty says it's good for 4 years. 4 years and 3 months later, it dies.

I hope someone else can help you.
Good Luck!

36" Sony Trinitron blinking red 4 times-PLEASE HELP QUICK!


Sounds like a typical high-voltage failure. Could easily cost another $300 to have it fixed. If it is less than about 6 years old I'd say it was worth fixing. If you want to DIY, then pull all the electronics out (label all the connections) and send it all to either Module Exchange at 972-298-1212 or PTS Electronics 800-844-7871

Loss of colour


With the set being 12 years old, I'm sure the picture tube is near the end of its useful life. You probably have a defective semiconductor, either an IC or transistor that has gone up giving you no color, but with the green picture, it is not likely worth repair.

Wide black bar on bottom of screen


I you know how to repair electronics its not a hard fix. The worst case would be the vertical output IC but im thinking th its nothing more then a capacitor in the verticle sweep circuit The average cost to repair this should be around 75 to 125 bucks. Good Luck
