It started with the TV being clear when turned on in the morning but then it would become fuzzy by the evening. Then the TV started to be fuzzy in the morning and become clear by the evening. Now the TV is fuzzy first thing in the morning. After the set has been on about 15 minutes the picture will be lost completely with nothing but static. The TV is actually a console model. The cabinet also contains a record player, radio and 8 track tape player. It was purchased in the middle 70s. I called a local repair shop and they told me the set could not be fixed because there were no parts available. Can you help me?

Re: Curtis Mathes TV
If your flyback is bad (the white flyback), this is a very common problem with this chassis. If the flyback is bad, they CAN be found at MCM electronics.if your flyback is white, then it is either 362003-6, or 362003-7 depending on your model number/tubes.

You can't. The only way to change it would be to go and buy a new TV. Unless you're asking about hook a game console to it, that's a different procedure. The analog refers to the internal workings of the TV its self.
Try contacting the folks at the link below: http://www.curtis-mathes.com
They probably have a member on their site that can help you with the problem you are having with your JVC DVD player only showing in back in white on your Curtis Mathes television. They love helping folks and they do it for free :)
A explanation that may tell you what is happening:
Some of their sets had this issue. The picture tube has a metal screen inside directly behind the stripes that make up the phosphor coating on the inside of the picture tube.
It is called a shadow mask. It has perforations that line up with all the stripes on the screen (look close--red-green-blue stripes all outlined in black--tiny).
What is wrong is not fixable even if the tube is replaced----the metal used in these sets for the mask contains iron which causes it to expand in areas with real bright scene changes--
No need to remove question as I saw it and answer questions for most TV area problems.
I actually ten years ago worked for Circuit City--saw at least 5 sets (all larger Toshiba sets) with this issue. On seeing first one called our support staff and someone explained to me the issue---that set was under extended warranty and since the customer was angry the set was "exchanged" for a brand new set and the old one was disposed of.
I own a One-for-All universal remote, and my booklet says the setup code for a Curtis Mathes TV (without a built-in DVD or VCR) is one of the following numbers: 0030, 0047, 0054, 0060, 0093, 0145, 0154, 0166, 0451, 0702. I can not guarantee these numbers will work with your remote, but it is worth a try.
