TV's use high voltage to generate the stream of electrons traveling across the picture tube hitting the screen and lighting it up (thus the name Cathode Ray Tube). It takes about 25,000 volts to do this. In normal air, it takes about 1000 volts to jump an inch of air, so the high voltage transformer needs to have good insulation. It generates the voltage through a technique of charging the transformer's magnetic field with a low voltage of about 140 volts then letting it go where upon it flys back out the high voltage side at much high levels (Thus the common name flyback). A most common failure in a CRT type TV is for the insulation to crack in this transformer which is a unique component for each model of TV and leak out the current overstressing the circuit driving it. You can liken it to a little bolt of lightning getting loose in the circuit and has the same sound on a smaller scale.
It would be well to replace your flyback transformer before it gets worse and blows up something else as well. Best done by a professional used to handling high voltage. The picture tube can retain voltage even when the TV is unplugged for some time, and replacing the anode lead (the big red one) can be dangerous.
Hope Ya Fix It!

Hi, Try moving the TV around so that the bars disappear. It could be you have it too close to something thats affecting the screen. You might even move it to a different room. Good luck.

Hi,
Maybe the cords have the problem.
You might have to pull and reconnect the cords and do the same basic turning on/off of the Tv.
Or you might also check the positioning of your Tv, example : are there stereos or speakers near or beside the Tv? it causes magnetic reaction and causes the screen to not work properly.

Hi, my RCA CRC311 BT turns on my Sharp television, changes the channels, etc, but it won't switch to video mode, even when I hit input. It is an old TV, but I used it to watch videos, dvds and play games...


Unfortunately you will not be able to switch input.
I also have a Sharp, I have tried 5 different universal remotes. None will switch input. I guess that function is not provided properly.
Good luck!
