SOURCE: dark picture and green tint

Most TVs of that caliber have a life expectancy of about ten years.. In 2009 we'll be passing into the HD era and that Tv won't work without a little help from an HD converter. What you're describing sounds like some transistor problems on the crt board and possibly voltage regulation. Not too expensive for a reputable shop, but my best advice would be to get an estimate first. If you need help finding a reputable shop contact NESDA, (National Electronic Service Dealer's Assn.) they should be able to direct you to a member's shop in your area. Its like going to the AMA to find a doctor. If the cost is more than half the cost of buying new - get a new one... Good Luck Bill

The problem with sets of this vintage is parts. There are a number of possible reasons for the loss of color. Some are simple and parts are still available, others are not. Considering the labor cost for any TV repair these days, I'd say that you got your money's worth out of this set and invest in a new one. If you'd like, post the model number and maybe I can get you the probable defective parts along with their replacement costs.

SOURCE: my piture is getting smaller and my color is gone

Hi Jwalden
The picture shrinking is an indicator the the regulated HT power supply rail is going low in voltage resulting in EHT supply for the tube doing the same. . This will relate to component failure in the power supply itself, probably capacitors. It will progress, and eventually the set will stop. To be totally honest with you, it could run to $180-250 to overhaul the power supply and a few other areas of concern in a set this age. They were always a little on the "cheap build" side to begin with, so I would not recommend you spend anything on it, your money would be better put towards a new one. I know that this does not fix your problem, but is advice from a TV tech that knows. Thanks for using FixYa. I am happy to answer any other questions you may have. A FixYa rating of this advice to you is a great reward for the time I have taken to address it with you. Cheers regards rbotek

I have an element elchs261 tv that is not turning on. It is about 5-6 years old, never had any problems before this. Would it be worth fixing?


Sorry, No. It is usually a turn on circuit. Check to see if it has a reset button on the back somewhere, you might get lucky and it had a power surge and automatically took it off line to protect the boards. If it does, just reset it.

That is correct. Sony has extended their warranty on panels for this model until Oct. 31st 2012. Just give Sony a call or simply take your set to an authorized service center and you will get your set fixed for free.

Sound but no picture


Hello Dabizot,

With the price of the new tv's, I would recommend getting a new tv. It's only a 19" and you can get a flat panel 19" for less than $ 200.00 It may cost you $ 100 plus to get it repaired along with any new parts. If you want to spend less money try looking at the yard sales, people are always selling used TV's for cheap.
