Sony KP57WV700 TV is on but screen goes completely red. When you turn it off you see lots of red lines. Recently TV was taken out of my home for repair. Tech kept is for two weeks and returned it on 12/21/2007 stating rebuilt red CRT, now today this and has only been a few weeks. What do I do? I just spent $800 for the repair. Please help.

Get them back out there and and make them fix the problem. Obviously it was not properly serviced. $800 for a repair that didn't take is a rip-off. If they refuse, report them to your local BBB and post negative feedback on ripoffreport.com, angieslist.com and as many other places you can come up with.

I get curved red lines and then screen goes completely red and no sound


Hi,
This is symptom of defective red picture tube in TV that needs to be replaced.
Let me know if you want to replace it by yourself to provide you part number info or call tv tech to do the job.
Thanks.

Samsung DLP HLS4666W White spots after replacing ballast


No. The DMD bd has gone bad and needs to be replaced. You have two options to repair your tv. The only two options will require a trained Samsung Tech to do either. Replace the DMD bd or the entire Engine. The Engine is a lot easier but more expensive. The DMD bd is more complicated to replace and will take longer thus increasing the labor cost because aligning the DMD bd takes time to do it correctly.

Picture is turning red


I had the same problem, where the red CRT was shorted out. It kept on getting redder and redder until on day I turned in on and it was all red. CRT's can be pricey so it would be best to call a repair tech to diagnose the problem. Most will do in home service so you probably won't have to cart the tv somewhere. Once I replaced mine it's worked great ever since.

Phillps tv problem


42" Plasma Flat screen TV - recently problem started with a solid black background over top half of screen during viewing (comes & goes). A few days ago, when TV was turned on, green light came on then changed to flashing red light in 4 signal flashing pattern, but no audio or video. Phoned Philps Cust Serv and was told to download system upgrade on USB but it did not work. Philips referred us to Service Repairs who charged $85 for coming to home and without even opening the TV, said it will cost approx $1000 for "boards" plus his service, and he could not guarantee the TV would work.

CTR Television will not power up


What has happened is that the horizontal output transistor has shorted. The squeal you hear is the power supply running under a heavy load. The picture narrowing or being distorted indicate that the horizontal output was not operating clean. Something in the output section was not as it should be. Possible short in the output transformer/tripler unit or something loading down the secondary voltages generated by the horizontal output. You will need a tech to figure this out....If you are not a tech, then this ones a goner as far as fix it at home goes.....If you are a tech I might be able to talk you through the repair. Have someone remove the horizontal output transistor and I bet the squeal goes away.
