Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
My Sony Trinitron was manufactured in 1998. For the last couple of days, every minute or two, the picture goes black for 2 to 3 seconds, then comes back again. Since it is 9 years old, I dont want to invest a lot of money in it if it is something major like the picture tube, but I expected a TV that cost as much as this one is to last longer than 8 or 9 years.
My Serial number says it si a Sony Trinitron WEGA KV-36FV1. Any ideas?
The screen control inside the set may be on the highvoltage transformer or on the crt socket; either way if you can turn it up just a little clockwise and the picture comes up but doesn't look good you are likely to have a bad tube. Or try tapping lightly on the glass neck and watch the picture as you tap. If it reacts to the tap you have a bad tube. but the turning the screen control is the best test. Turn it the other way the picture goes off immediately. bad tube: too costly if it is available.
