Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

Screen gone out

I have a philips magnavox. I've had it for about 6 years. The screen recwently went black. I have access to sound it's just the screen. it's completely black. The channel numbers don't even show up and when I switch imput I can here the games or dvd's on but no picture. This first happened a vouple of weeks ago But I tried rectifying it by hitting the side of tv. This brought the screen back. I didn't have to tdo that for a while and then I had to do it every time I turned the tv on and now hitting it doesnt even work. What should I do?

    I don't know what a soldering iron is. Should I try and take the tv apart to look fo a soldering iron? And to see if there is any loose contacts? I've been told that a lot of electricity still flows threw the tv even when its unplugged so I wasnt sure f I needed to take it to a professional. I would prefer one come to my home.

You could have a loose connection in the Horizontal section or something close to the flyback transformer. If you have a soldering iron and look for loose contacts . Then hopefully you won't have to hit it anymore. Good luck

    What you should do is call around to a few service centers and find what they charge for a service call . Some can be expensive . If you could take it to your local shop it would be cheaper on your estimate should you decide not to have it fixed . Some service centers are charging $50 to $100 just to drive to your house . A soldering iron is a tool used for repairing the set . Hopefully it won't be expensive to get repaired . Good luck

You will have to give the set out for service. This is not something you can service yourself.

This can be some failed components in the CRT bias and drive circuits, or maybe a CRT has failed. This has to be determined by taking measurements and doing some tests.

I believe that your set may have been manufactured by Philips.
