We have a panasonic colour television- The picture is very dull. we can't see the faces clearly and the title word also not readable.

The picture tube in the set has lost the capacity to produce a decent display, over the years the picture tube builds up a lot of crud in the guns and blocks the emission that controls the quality of the picture. There is an instrument that will burn away the coating, so more emission material is exposed, but this approach is very short lived and back to where you were if not worse. In order to fix this you will need a new picture tube and the cost would prohibited. I suggest replacing it in favor of a new one.

Looking for replacement picture tube, dropped set, now left, from front view, 22% of screen has green tent, along with several spots that a simple degause will fix--suggestions please!!!

The replacement picture tube new "if available" would cost more than a new set, unless you are lucky enough to find a good used one. but it sounds like the shadow mask inside the original tube has shifted, not sure how effective degaussing will be.

Need a picture tube for Pro Scan TV


If your TV needs a new tube my advice is: FORGET IT! A new tube will cost a ridiculous amount of money (more than new TV).

If you cannot get a standard CRT TV brand new, then I'm sure you'll find many good ones in a second-hand store, or advertised locally.

Where can i find a replacement picture tube for my akai 42" LCD tv?

Due to residual electricity, replacing a TV's picture tube is very dangerous. I would NOT do it myself. Besides this, getting a new picture tube frequently costs almost as much as a new TV would.

You can contact a local repairman (if it's still under warranty just send it back), and get an estimate, but seriously consider getting a new TV.

You try to play the video tape or DVD. If picture still snowy, the picture tube is getting old. Buy a new one, do not repair it will cost almost a new set.

12 yr. old 25" G.E. picture fading

I gotta love it when people make up answers. There is no such thing as a "contrass module". I'm assuming the poster meant "contrast". The trouble is your 12-year-old picture tube. It's gotten weak and isn't getting as bright or sharp as it used to. Picture tube manufacturers estimate the useful life of a tube at about 7 years today. There are adjustments inside that might help some, but you need a new picture tube. It's going to cost a lot more than $60 to $75 for that. You're better off replacing the TV.

Picture has lines going across

No picture tube is cheap to replace. Especially a Sony tube. And besides the cost of the tube there's the labor cost to install it and some tedious adjusting needs to be done to set up the replacement. When a picture tube fails it's time to replace the set.

Now having said all that, there are different kinds of lines that can show on the screen. Some are because the tube is bad, but others can come from less expensive parts on the circuit board in the set. Without seeing the lines for myself I can't tell you about yours. If you are wanting to keep the set, I would suggest having a qualified shop check it. The can tell you for sure if it's the tube or not, and give you an estimate for the cost of repair.

Sanyo television

Susie, you either have a shorted green drive transistor or more likely a shorted cathode inside your picture tube, transistor repair is a cheap fix, picture tube means set is not worth cost of repair, hope this helps
