Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

Samsung TV stopped displaying picture

My TV stopped showing the picture while I was watching TV last night. The sound continues to work. I tried turning it off and on. Same thing, and I noticed the power/standby indicator light flashes instead of staying on, much like it does when you first turn the TV on, though it persists in that fashion. I undid the cable (we just got cable installed) and hooked it straight to a DVD player. Same thing, sound but no picture. Is the CRT shot, or is there some setting I am missing? Thanks for your help,

Re: Samsung TV stopped displaying picture

No picture but sound can mainly be of two problems, most of the times it is caused by a faulty vertical deflection ic, you can diagnose this by slightly increasing the screen voltage by turning the screen control on the LOT, a horizontal line will appear if the vertical ic is shot, and the other problem is the CRT base, but this is less common for shot base won't go off at once, it will show picture faded in the beginning. Now another problem could be the horizontal output transistor, if the tv has a high power sound output, the sound power supply will come from smps itself instead of from LOT, check that too, to confirm this, check if the CRT filament is glowing. Good luck.

I have a JVC tv only 1 year old and the picture is getting dark.

Sorry to tell you but JVC is a well-known un-reliable brand and if it's cheap, probably even worse. U may have screen burn from leaving a games console on while plugged into the tv, even if its not showing the game, it will burn it onto the screen. :(

RCA F36650 36

Sounds like horizonal output transistor could be over heating. There could be other problems. But I would start there. You can find the part number on the schematic inside the set. If you change it yourself don't forget to use the included insulater. Part should cost between 15 & 20 dollars. You will need make & model # of set at electronic parts store.
Diagrahm inside set will show you location of transistor.

Samsung DLP loud vibrating noise

The color wheel is the most common problem in DLPs that cause noise. To determine the cause: Turn the set off. If the noise goes away after about five seconds, then, the problem is the color wheel. If the noise goes away one to two minutes after shut off, then, the problem is a fan. You can find an Authorized Servicer in your area that can tell you the price of repair, by clicking on the Samsung link:
