We have an older Phillips Magnavox tv. The tv will turn on & we will see the picture for a short time but then the screen turns grey. We still have sound, just no picture. Also, the green power light...

Hello, the grey screen could be due to a missing 220Volt source which feeds the color (RBG cathodes)inside the CRT(picture tube). When this happens the beam current inside the CRT goes high in a matter of second, thus triggering the beam current protection circuit(blinking green light)shutting down the TV. Repairing the secondary voltage source is necessary to get the TV working normal, a good technician should be able to repair it for between 80 to 100 dollars parts included, except a picture tube, which could be also the cause of the problem(K-A shorts).

Cause of oil in sparkplug tube?

1.your valve cover's spark plug chamber seal is leaking. Which requires removing the valve covers and replacing the gaskets and seals. 2. Excessive oil spills on to the valve cover and ignition coils when adding oil.

**This excess oil on the plug boots can cause the coils to short and eventually fail.

Green screen, white lines. Audio fine.

You most likely have a bad picture tube. Green gun is shorted. Usually a set this size is not economically feasible to put a new tube in. You may also have a green drive problem on the CRT board. Have a shop check it out for you before junking it. Thanks for using fixya.

Will not turn on.

No power - pop the back and check the fuse. Remember to unplug it from the wall first. 

Also, look on the circuit boards for spilled fluid. Since you moved the set a bunch the tubes may have leaked. If they leaked on the circuit board it may be shorted out.

Projection oil spill on main circuit board

The coolant in the CRT's is made up of 70% ethylene glycol and 30% glycerin. The coolant is highly conductive and somewhat corrosive. Since you already tried to turn it on im not sure but hopefully you wiped it up first. Take some 100% denatured alcohol and use that to clean the spill you can just pour it on and wipe it off with the set unplugged of course. then let the remainder on the board evaporate (It evaporates very quickly when open) and repeat the process. if your lucky and it did short the first time you turned it on the fuse just blew.

No pic. or sound but power light is on

Most likely the blue picture tube arched and shorted out the horzontal output transistor.Very common problem with this chassis.Now if you have an electronics background you can most likley fix it, if not you will be dealing with finding a high voltage leak consisting of 31,000 volts which can kill you.That pop you heard was the high voltage leaking to ground.

Sounds like one of two things. One is it has had oil spilled while adding oil and it has ran down into the chamber by gravity. The other is a leaking valve cover gasket.

Dim picture

If decide to do yourself, ya only have to do the green and blue ones, the red light spectrum won't allow fungal growth. Pull whole CRT assembly out to prevent spilled/leaking glycol from onto lower main boards
