Vertical bars on the screen

The t.v. does not turn off unless unplugged cannot change the channel or turn up the volume.

nothing changes it just stays on the screen with the colorful bars.

cannot change to dvd either.

just fixed on the one screen unless unplugged but when its turned back on its still on the same screen

    sounds like something wrong with the main board inside the tv. you can open it and look for bulged capacitors, many tvs have bad ones, and they cause many symptoms.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5000889-re...

You will be needing a main board or some times the power supply is erratic causingm the mainm board to lock up. I have not had good luck finding parts for this brand,but salvage sites such as shopjimmy.com have helped. If you want to try to solve and have technical ability look for swelled capacitors inm power area first....iof all looks ok,then price the main board

Sounds like the vertical deflection has dropped out which would shut down the three CRTs but still allow audio to work. The vertical output IC may need replacement.

"snow" screen, full volume, remotes don"t work


good day
due to the long time the buttons were not used, they tend to get stuck and this causes channels eighter to stay in one station or continou scanning. it could be resolved by spraying WD40 on the buttons and press it many times then dry it before operating the unit.

Freeze up


Most likely it's your memory ic (eprom). Sometimes depending on the make, an authorized service center can flash the eprom back to normal. This is something you can not do but I hope this helps a little.
