Tv needs to warm up?

When I turn the tv on it has a black screen, then after it warms up it is fine. When I change the channel after it warms up and is acting fine the problem starts all over again and I have to wait again to let it warm up on a different channel. Anyone know what is wrong?

I would suggest re-soldering your tuner connections and see if that helps. solder cracks tend to "fix" themselves after they warm up. Try the solder first but also look for evidence of a capacitor that may be swelled or leaking near the tuner.That is a possibility also.Hope this helps, let me know if you ned any further assistance.

Tried turning on my Sony and no picture no sound, just a black screen

Sony is known for having problems with the picture tube. Sometimes it will blink on and off. also bad connections on the main board. A CRT restorer will sometimes help with picture tube problems but this must be done by a tech that has one.

Big Screen TV won't turn off

Check the voltage to the relay, usually 12v dc. Also check the relay or replace as it may be stuck after the tv warms up. The micro chip for functions could be locking up. Try spraying a little freeze spray directly on chip after tv is locked up see if this unlocks, if it does you have a bad micro chip.

Tuning in takes ages whilst warms up

IF your TV is not one of the real old ones, you have a problem with the automatic tuning system. Some component in this circuit most likely a capacitor or coil is changing its electrical properties due to temperature which in turn causes the set to be off frequency until it warms up. A capacitor (condenser) can do this quite often. Stargazer
