Question about Hitachi C29-F300B 29 in. Television
Our 5 year old TV screen (cathode ray tube I think) was damaged during a power failure. It appears distorted and cannot be adjusted. Also the colour cannot be adjusted and is very poor. Would this be able to be repaired or do we need to replace the TV?
Yes, worth fixing. A techie may be able to do a "degauss" on the screen and get it right again. This is the removal of residual magnetization of the cathode ray tube that is done by applying a fast alternating magnetic field to the screen. Sometimes the symptoms you indicated (though a bit vague) imply that the degauss circuit of the TV itself has failed. Voltage spikes are known to often do that.
