Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

Open Question


We have been given an old (at least 13 years) JVC TV. The first time we switched it on it worked well for about 20 minutes but then cut out and went to stand by. After pressing a button to get it back onto the channel we were watching, we got sound but no picture, for about 30 seconds before it reverted back to standy by again. On subsequent days, we managed to get about 5 minutes of viewing and then the same thing happened. Any thoughts on what we should do next? Thank you. Happy new year.
label on back is torn which is why we have only a few details of model/serial

It could also be the color wheel, it's been documented for DLP TVs to have problems with both the lamp and color wheel. For those with a screwdriver and ability to read online instructions, you can replace the color wheel yourself. I took out the guts of my Samsung HLR-5067W and found that the color wheel shattered, I'm anxiously awaiting my replacement.

Hopefully you have the problem solved.

If not, the RCA plugs, listed as input 1 and 2 are shown on channel 91 and 92.

I recommend connecting the DVD to either input. Turn on the DVD. Then run the auto programming function of the TV. It will find and program the channel for the DVD. Then use the channel up or down on the remote you are currently using and you should find a working DVD.

Hope this helps.

I have a 10 year old JCV TV that the backlight is not working, is it worth trying to repair?

You haven't given the exact model number to your TV here. Back light inverter might also replaced along with defective CCFL lamp/s. It wont cost more. Anyway will cost around 10% of the total cost of the TV

My 20" rca 20f424t cuts

That sucks about your tv. Mine just turned 3 years old. Never had a problem with it. But you seriously can't expect wal-mart to take back and exchange a 3 year old tv. Come on. That would be stupid for walmart to do. Even RCA prolly dosent do more than a 1 year warranty. Unless you purchased the warranty from walmart, it will be cheaper to just get a 19 inch lcd tv now. Cheapest I see them on sale for is only $99.99

20 year old Quasar colour TV (no remote)

That is because the switches of the front panel buttons are stuck or defective.

Try first unplugging power for ten minutes, this probably wont work.

To fix this the TV must be taken apart from an expert, and front panel replaced.

You can enquiry here for parts.

What you can do at home, is getting a replacement remote and using TV with a remote, or buying a freeview box, and watching and changing channels through the box.

You can get a replacement remote here: Replacement Remote Control orReplacement Remotes

My suggestion, if it is supported in your area, get a set top box with 30 channels : Freeview - digital TV from Argos.

12 yr old JVC 36'' television

The little button on the main circuit board may be sticking intermittently causing your set to do this. This little push button was operated by the piece your 3-year old broke off.
