Do self diagnosis test by pressing input and menu on set at the same time for 5 sec. It should blink a 2 digit code. Remember code and let me know.

I use to have a blue patch at the left bottom of the screen of my Sony WEGA TV. KDL 50WE 665. It,s been expanding fllowed by discoloration. Now today, the screen is black though the power is on. Any...

Difficult to address the black screen problem without diagnosis but the blue discoloration is definitely a bad optical engine. Sony extended warranty coverage for this until June of 2010 but no more. Cost of the part is around $900 so I wouldn't pursue any further repair.

My screen is discolored and blurry. Please advise..

Sounds like contaminated fluid. Each of the 3 crt's in your set have coolant to keep them cool. This coolant over time gets contaminated and causes extreme blurry picture. ITs extremely common on the Magnavoxs. Its also a pretty big job. Replacing the fluid isnt too difficult but because the tubes have to be removed it means both physical alignment and electronic alignment will be necessary. Also dont remove the green tube until you have done both the blue and red and aligned them to the green. Then do the green.. I hated doing that job lol.. I dont recommend you trying it and probably wouldnt be cost effective to pay a shop to do it either.. I recommend buying a new set... Sorry

Sony model kdf-70xbr950 , screen has blue streaks and blue dots. app. repair cost ,tv is 7 years old

Hi,what you are experimenting it's a faulty light engine problem,this is a common failure on Sony tvs.What's happening Is that your tv carries 3 chips blue,green and red, those chips are in charge of creating the colors on your tv .When these chips start to melt you will get color discoloration.Repair cost will be very highly around $400-$600 The part you need it's called the light engine or optical block ,some people are getting sony to repair their tv at no cost,I suggest to contact them to see if you qualify.God bless you!

Damaged the LCD - Sharp 46 in. LCD Full HD Television, AQUOS®

Yes it is possible to replace the panel. I would suspect that it is cost prohibitive however. I am willing to state that the cost of the panel will be close to if not more than the cost to replace the TV.

Sorry about the bad news.

Screen going black

It sounds like the set is loosing high voltage to the 3 crt's. This usually ends up being an expensive repair, if the parts are still available. A new, or at least newer, set might be money better spent.

There are 4 variants of your model listed. Can you please post the complete model number? There should be letters and numbers following the R52WM24. The front protective screen does not appear to be a separately available part. The screen assembly runs about $170. Post the exact model and I'll get you the order number and costs.

Mitsubishi model # vs-5055 will power off after a minute or so

Most older TV's require hand-soldering at least once in their lives,esp. regulator pins in power supply circuits.That work
requires the chassis to be pulled = major labor.......T.

Misubishi vs-6041

I would try a used TV shop in the area they may have one from a set that got parted out. most shops save the screens. The part would no longer be available for that model. The price should be anything from 100 to 150 for the screen assembly

Screen Discoloration Problem

dJbsharp1: Check if the cleaner you use discolor or remove the clear of the screen. Touch the cleaned part and somewhere else on the screen to see if is rougher than the part you didn't clean-up. If this did not occur you can clean it up completely and watch the difference. If it's rough as I described you, a replacement will be necessary. It is easy to replace. Very easy.
