This could be the backlight failing (most often the images will tend to go pink). If the TV is out of warranty, you can replace the backlight(s) yourself. lcdparts.net has many backlights but you need to match the length and width to the original. Next you need to open up the back of the TV and carefully remove the old backlight(s). The backlights are on the perimeter of the TV (laptop screens started with one but most TVs have several to maintain an even lighting of the image).) The removal takes some work and paying attention to how the original is put together. The backlights are often molded into the frame of the TV and a Dremel or other rotary tool is needed to get the backlight out. Google backlight replacement for videos, pictures and descriptions of the process.

I hope this helps.

Picture is not very clear and the color is faded and can not adjust it


This mite sound crazy but it is time to change the oil in your TV. Yes your TV has three seperate picture tubes on the inside of it. A red tube, blue tube, and green tube. Each one of thses tubes has a clear oil that the light shines through. Over time this oil gets cloudy and distorts the light thus dimming and fadeing your picture please have a tech change the oil in your tubes.

Isolate filament voltage from CRT,i.e. unplug Crt socket from pix tube.Measure filament voltage on CRT PCB.If present,suspect bad pix tube.If missing,solder any/all connects in filament circuit,meaning CRT board first then main PCB.

Picture faded to black, came back, faded again and had stayed black.


It seems your set has a loose conection in the high voltage circuits,in fact by now it should have many loose conections in different areas like the power supply and the horizontal deflection circuits,if you are familiar with tv service you can use the information as the first step to take,some of the loose conections are hard to see even for the trained technician but the one giving you this problem should not be hard to see,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and call for assistance from a servicer a least for an estimate.
