The CRT (picture tube) is failing. This is classic in these TV sets, and including many models of the Sony.

There is a short occuring in the electron gun. The CRT would not be feasible to replace even if it was available!

Samsung model hlt4675sx\xaa projection tv wont work. the stand by/temp light flashes red and the lamp light flashes green? it makes the sound that it makes when it turns on but no picture. we looked at the...


It could be the temp sensor going bad. This sensor sits on top of the metal housing which the bulb assembly slides into. The bulb assembly will have a hole on top and this is where the sensor is above. There is a small blue and white wire that plugs into it. If you pull the wire out and put a paper clip or wire in the coupling you will basically bypass the sensor connecting the blue and white wire. If your tv turns on then that is your problem. Its cheap too. Here were my symptoms..1] Turn tv on 2] Bulb would light up..(which eliminates the ballast) regular picture would show up (which eliminates the bulb and color wheel) 3] 30 seconds later tv would shut down with 3 flashing lights. After bypass the tv turned on as always and hasnt shut down yet. Always un plug tv first. Get the replacement part to avoid overheating and possible fire

The picture is green


your picture tube is wearing out . there is a way around it it will work for a while .you need to lower the drive for the green . on the board on the neck of the picture tube there are three adjustments marked red , blue, green on the front of the tv turn down the color all the way down . normally you would have a black in white picture but now you have a green and white find the screw adjustment marked green and carefully turn it down untill the picture is black in white and your fixed . adjust color back up .... dont do this repair unless you are confortable working around high voltages a wrong move inside a tv can kill you , this adjusment must be made with power on so you can see the picture as your going ... so this may not be for you . use your own judgement ........Please if this answer helped , please rate this 3 or 4 stars . and keep me in the paid answer department . A 1 or 2 may knock me down into the unpaid ranks. Thanks Cactus Bob .

Video turn pale green/yellow then comes back?


sounds like your picture tube is going out, if its an old tv it would be best to let it die since its very costly to fix these problems. If its new you better get it looked at. It is a hardware problem, nothing you can do about it.

Samsung TXN3275HF 32" tv - purple picture


Chuck the TV - probably It depends on the repair facilities available where you live. In big urban areas the cost of staffing a repair shop is such it can cost nearly as much per hour just to look at an item is it does to buy the next one-plus you get all the latest features.
