No picture,perfect sound

My 12 year old SP 3220 has a black screen but perfect sound. I can't see the "Action" Menu to make picture adjustments. Is it worth trying to fix?

    Picture tube life.... 5 years? I believe its a lot longer than that. My mom has a TV thats still going strong after 18 years and it runs day and night. I agree with sedonix though. Today, we live in a consumer product throw-away society where its cheaper to buy a new gadget than to repair it. We've come a long way from the days of the TV repairman and his faithful tube checker. :(

My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money trying to get any more life out of it.
Another option is to wholesale replace the main board from an outfit like PTS Electronics (ptscorp.com)
Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, these new technology ones are much worse. Always Google the model number of the set you intend to buy and add the word 'repair' or 'complaint' to see if it is one of the many models that are customer service nightmares being produced by even the most reputable companies today.
Hope ya fix it!

I own a Quasar SP-3235 32" TV. It has a slight green tint after 10 years of use. How can I adjust the color screens on this set? Is it a function of the remote like Sony TVs or do I need to remove


I would open it first and look, a lot of those had both the screen and drive controls on the PCB at the end of the picture tube, at least look there first.

You are dead on in looking for the screen controls, if you find one it should only be a tiny adjustment due to age and the Crt changing a bit.

My 5 year old plasma tv has sound but no picture what could this be?


No picture as in a black screen? or a picture with snow (noise)? If there is no picture at all (black screen) with no menu display when menu button is pressed, then it sounds like the y-sus and the z-sus boards are faulty..These are the boards located usually on the left and right edges of the screen. They are fused and these can blow, severing the supplt to the boards. These boards are used to deflect the electrical charge across the screen. If you have no picture then it sounds like both boards are down

I have a problem with my Olympus SP- 510 UZ digital camera: Although it perfectly displays pictures taken recently, the screen remains all black when I intend to take pictures. It does take pictures...


Sounds like a repair issue with the image processing chip in the camera. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss repair options and pricing. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

No picture or sound


This type of repair might not be a DIY since requires the use of a multimeter to check all the voltages from the power supply to all the circuitry in your plasma.
First step should be to measure all the voltages to the Y and X sustainer boards and since you do not have audio as well to check the 12 volts source as well.
If your plasma is less then a year old, still cover under manufacturers warranty.

TV has sound but no picture RCA ColorTrak 2000 P52150CP


If I had a model # it would be helpful but my guess is the deflection circuit failed and a fuse opened in that circuit. Could be vertical or hoizontal circuit failure but either way you will need test equip. as well as solder/desolder equip. to repair it. If set is over 10-12 years old you may consider replacing set in this case Sorry I can't be more help.

Audio but no video


If the screen is not illuminated this can be from the screen power supply, the main screen driver board, or the screen itself has failed. The service rep will change boards to service this, and adjust as necessary.

The set will require factory level service.
