It will be worth it to replace it as long as the coolant did not leak on the board. If any fluid got on the boards there is a chance your boards will be ruined. If the tube was just shorted and arcing then it just takes replacing the tube. This also will take some major convergence to get it back watchable.

How old is your set and how many hours do you put on it every month? These are questions that you'll have to weigh to decide whether to keep or replace the unit...accordianman

    The fluid involved is non-corrosive and usually silicone-based,.Therefore, the fact that some has gotten onto the boards is a moot point, unless some other contaminant has mixed with this substance, such as spider webbbing,(very conductive) or any other such item. In other words, don't worry about the fluid that has already spilled....accordianman

Line dow the middle of my tv

This is an LED leak, honestly nothing can be done unfortunetly. Depending on the make and model of the tv you might be entitled to a new one at a really low price. We had a sony that did this, and it was silently recalled, so we were not told about it. Call the company to which the tv was made and ask for a refund or exchange etc. We recieved an even bigger tv within 2 days, only $100.00 and it was a $4,000 tv they gave us. Hope this helps.

Good Info you are providing here.
Try removing the yoke to add some varnish to get rid off the short you have. It has to be the same material that was use on the yoke to keep the windings together.

Hitachi 43FDX01B green is out of whack

The green is not adjustable in the customer menu because it is considered the 'master' color. It is adjustable in the technician mode however but if it is curved it won't even adjust properly that way either. The problem is the convergence ampifier responsible for green convergence has failed. The convergence output IC's need to be replaced.

32" RCA when plugged in snaps an arcs

Normally an arc or snap like that is coming from the anode cap that attaches to the top center of the crt. The voltage there is upwards of 25k so be VERY careful if you're going to inspect this for any faults. If it is the cap leaking unplug the set and take a piece of wire attached to a screw driver with the other end of the wire attached to the grounding cable around the outer edge of the crt. Gently undo the cap from the crt and allow the blade to sit in the well for a period of time to discharge the crt completely.
Next get some HV putty, sold at most electronics distributors like Mouser and form a small ring with it. Place it around the well hole in the crt and replace the anode cap pressing firmly to seal the edges of the cap to the crt. With the back still off plug the unit in and see if that's cured the problem.

Mitsubishi ws 55807

The green Crt for your set is part number 251C207050. You said that you cleaned up where the fluid leaked but if even the slightest is left it can and will short this board. You are looking at about 200-250 for this CRT and if it leaked you would want it replaced. I couldnt find any in stock anywhere most had feb ship dates. You can get it from andrews electronics and union electronics.

Sanyo television

Susie, you either have a shorted green drive transistor or more likely a shorted cathode inside your picture tube, transistor repair is a cheap fix, picture tube means set is not worth cost of repair, hope this helps

During dark images on my TV, several green lines are visible across the TV.

You may have an arc in the screen and focus circuits. Water may have gotten into these circuits causing a delayed reaction. (Circuits Corroded). These circuits at least part of them are a part of the high voltage transformer (flyback). Your picture tube socket has spark gaps inside of it too which may be arcing. You need to have it checked by a tech to find out just what is arcing. Stargazer

Loose Picture (Goes completely Black)

Nothing special about that board as I cant seem to find that # but If my memory serves me correctly it sounds like a crt board and its a simple soldering job on the crt socket?? Altough Im not there to see the set still 550.00 seems like an awfull lot to repair a set even if they have to replace the entire chassis. I think you should cal rca and take it to an authorized RCA repair center and if the shop you took it to was an rca authorized center I would also report that to them(RCA). Good Luck
