I will guess you remember tube sets from our parents days !
They stopped being Mfr'd in 1972 !
Best solution for your set = replace horiz transformer and
transistor with RCA part # 's 257807 & 237470................T.

Loud buzzing sound from tv with no picture

It sounds as though your SMPS is seriously faulty and normally one can buy a kit to correct the problem if you are a TV engineer, however there could also be many other reason for the condition that you describe its almost impossible to guess correctly, it really needs a qualified engineer to assess the problem along with he or she having the set with them.

Was working fine last night ,went to turn it on and you can hear a buzzing by where you plug in your jacks a bee,or high pitch has no picture or sound.only sound you hear is this buzzing

Sounds like your power supply is causing the problem. Unplug the TV wait 10 minutes, look in the back for a red button (circuit breaker) push it in. If this does not work you have a low voltage power supply fault.

My magnavox tv is making a buzzing sound, no picture, and wont change channels (just a dark screen)

Something has shorted in the set causing the power supply to make that buzzing sound. Most likely the short is in the horizontal circuit. The horizontal makes the high voltage work which in turn lights the picture tube.

Red power light and buzzing sound with red lamp light.

My Sony lost its picture and had a flashing light. Unplugging for 36 hours solved the problem.

My Sony tv CRT

If it's between 5-10 secs, that's normal. You will turn the tv on and hear a loud (buzz/hum) that is the picture tube firing up, once it's fired up, it has a few more seconds until your picture comes up fully. That is about 5-10 secs from pushing the power button.

If it's taking longer than that, your picture tube may be going out.

I had a 36XBR250 and it took about 10 secs to fire up and show a picture, and it was 5 1/2 years old.

Buzzing Noise and TV picture is yellow

Andy, I'm thinking the buzz is from the deflection coil (yoke) on the neck of the tube or the power supply. Probably not the high voltage as you can hear the "buzz". If it's really that annoying, you can take a length of rubber tubing (no metal) and listen to the buzz coming from the chassis kind of like a stethoscope. STAY AWAY FROM THE HIGH VOLTAGE, please. The yellow picture sounds like a blue chroma failure. A tube can be rejuvinated if need be but that's a job for a pro. Hope this helps.

Picture went out and all the tv does is make a buzzing sound

The horizontal output transistor drives a transformer that gives you the high voltage to light up the picture tube,either the transistor or the transformer have gone bad,sometimes both have to be replaced and sometimes the transistor fails for no reason by itself.Be safe and call for help if you are not familiar with tv service.
