My husband and I own a small motel, we bought some used tv cabinets that already had tvs in them. These tvs are 10 + years old so we want to put our tvs in the cabinets because they are newer and bigger. The problem is the tvs in the cabinet are on a sviwal mount and we can not figure out how to get them off the mount. These are probalby old moldels judging by the age of the tv. Please help before my husband ripps the cabinet apart!!

I do not believe there is any easy fix to this. The problem may be either in the picture tube or the related circuitry. The worst case scenario is the tube itself is failing. However, it could be as simple as a defective connection on the pc board at the tube for example. You may want to get a technician to check it out and get an estimate before you buy a new set. Good luck
Actually, when a fuse blows, most of the time there is something that went bad and is causing the fuse to blow. Some TVs don't use the typical glass fuses. Instead the might use a surface mount soldered component. These components are usually labeled with the letter F for fuse. Example would be F1 or F2. They are usually found near the power cord or near the power supply. Hope this helps...
Had the same problem. You have to get a universal remote that matches the tv. Bought it today at Kmart (Walmart has it too). Only set me back $10-11 bucks and most def. worked. Set it to the tv and hit the Input button, GAME mode came right on. Here is what I posted in another forum on here.
well i think your husband is right. it might be three years old, but the sligtest damage can kill it. so what you need to do is start saving up for a new tv. sorry for waht happened. maybe somebody hit the screen?
Yes it could be the microprocessor IC or the display IC. Im not sure how the display system works as I do not have a schematic for the set. now what I have seen in the past, is that when the flyback blew out it sent a spike pulse way bigger then it should have been and blew out the display sync circuit, and that is built into the microprocessor. Also I have seen in the past, when a main componet such as a flyback transformer is replaced, there are small surface mounted componets near and around the flyback that gets unsoldered. These are ussually small surface mounted type resistors or capacitors that send a pulse to sync up the display output with the horizontal and vertical sweep, or the display would not know where to be and would run so fast along the screen that you would not see it. Check out the horizontal pulses to the micro, or like I said the micro is bad. Good Luck
