Question about Televison & Video
Picture is very fuzzy and there is a buzzing noise. There are tubes in the TV with some kind of liquid. The liquid is dirty and needs to be replaced but I do not know what the liquid is
The picture tubes in these models (red, green and blue) use a liquid coolant to keep them cool. In this set usually the blue and green fluid will become contaminated which has a major impact on picture clarity and brightness. If you take the screen off and look directly into the lenses you will see directly how bad the fluid looks. The Red usually is not affected by this problem.
The buzzing could be a noisy coil or possibly a high voltage leak. There may also be some leaking fluid involved in this as I have seen fluid gather around the high voltage cup (underside of the tubes) and cause the high voltage to arc a bit causing noise as well.
This repair is not for the faint of heart as it involves removing the affected tubes, disassembling, draining, sanitizing, reassembling, refilling, reinstalling and realigning them. The glycol based fluid is messy and it's easy to get into big problems if there are any leaks, as the leaks will usually end up on the main pc board. Our shop charges about $350 for this repair.
