Re: tv turns self off when turned on

My Tru Flat turns on and off and will stay on for a minute and then do the same routine. The remote stopped working. One day I plugged it back in and it worked fine for 1 day. Now it's doing the same thing.

My Tv started with flashing red/orange colors. Then later the screen turned red/orange and the TV shut off. When I attempt to turn it on again, the screen stayes red for a few minutes then shuts off.

The problem based on the model number is in or around the red picture tube---the bright red screen causes the set to draw too much current and the shutdown circuit detects this and turns set off--self protection.

Each picture tube (3) has a IC chip on the board connected to it--shorted chip or bad picture tube.

Shop repair in most cases.

if you want to eliminate magnetism, you have to degauss the screen, if you don't know how to do that, here is a small guide for that:

but that strange shutting down its the transistor... so your best choice is to send it to a repairman to change the transistor..
if you try to do that for your self, you could even get shocked with the electricity contained in the tv... even if its turned off and unplugged..

Tv wont turn on

You probably have a bad flyback transformer (high voltage). You might want to get an estimate to find out if it is worth repairing. Stargazer
