I would like to know if the capacitors are difficult to change/repair. I am not knowledgeable with TV repair, but am willing to try. I am currently overseas with no repair help. It this something that a novice can do? I've checked the ballast and it appears that when I plug in the housing unit, it feels as through the unit plugs into place. Please advise. I would love to have my TV back.

Tools u must have to do the job.A soldering iron,a desoldering pump or a roll of desoldering braids,a roll of solders,can u also do basic soldering?Yes.Tries websites like Tvrepairworld.com,Tvrepairkits.com to buy a complete convergence kit for ur tv model and make to repair it ur self.This convergence kit will also come with a DVD disc of instructions.The price is not $30,like $65 plus shipping.
Sounds like the vertical controll circuit, it could just be a capicator that is on that circuit. as per the comb filter its very difficult to repair as the capacitors are micro and difficult to solder unless your soldering skills is very good. The is a place that repairs these comb filters www.ptscorp.com i am not sure at what cost though. At any case you can bypass the comb filter by
1.) getting an s-video adapter for your vcr
2.) connect the vcr to the tv using the s-video adapter
3.) change the channels using your vcr.
I'd rcommend you get a professional to have a look at it and repair it as it is much to difficult to repair your self even if you have the service manual

This might be a case of the Phase detector (excuse my aged response) let me change that to Quadrature Detector, allowing the audio to be intermixed with the video, if this can still happen? I have not had a problem like this in years. It is usually due to a faulty filter capacitor supplying voltage smoothing to the circuitry connected to the quadrature detector.I would recommend that you take the TV to a qualified TV repair technician.
its the problem in the power supply board of your tv. check for the fuse on the power supply board. for any blown capacitors or ics.on the powersupply board.
also check for any loose soldering joints on the main board.
calling a tech is much advisable.if do not have proper technical knowledge.
it will not be too costly to get it repaired. it is worth getting it repaired.as this is a common fault faced by many customers.
Go to this site they have the service manual which they email you after purchase and that entitles you to free tech support and they have a repair tech that can do the repair in his sleep he will actually send you step by step instructions with pictures on doing the repair which only cost a few dollars in capacitors
