MY 35IN COME ON PICTURE AND EVERYTHING WAIT 10 SECONDS AND GOES OFF 35IN TUBE ABOUT 15 YEARS OLD


There is likely something wrong with the tube itself. It could be a short that is only there when the line warms up (10 seconds is plenty considering the amount of power that runs through it) or the CRT has a crack.
If you want to continue with this type of TV there are quite a few reliable TV repair companies in almost every mid to large town around the US. If you don't want to invest in repairing a 15 year old TV (not a bad life span for electronics by the way) then you could very likely find a 32"-37" LCD TV at your local electronic store that is reasonably priced.

Blank screen on panasonic television


Hi, u have clearly mentioned that u are able to hear the sound from ur television. So the audio port of ur tv has no problem. The problem is that the picture tube of ur tv has damaged totally. Video output port has lost its ability to display on screen. If u are in a option of repairing ur tv its better to get a new picture tube or else if u opt for purchasing ur new television its well and good. but the cost for replacing ur new picture tube costs more.

46" SAMSUNG IS NOISY AND SOUNDS LIKE A AIRPLANE WHEN TURNED ON


Most high voltage electronic parts in a tube style television only have a life of 1-3 years. All of your internal parts are due to burn out or fail.

I would give up and sell/give away this tv and buy a new LCD or Plasma version. Repairing and old tube style tv is probably going to cost over 500 dollars. Just put that money to a nice new one instead. I know it sucks to say goodbuy to your old friend, but the era of the tube tv has ended.

Sounds like the picture tube is starting to go, I don't believe it would be worth repair or even if you can get the parts for a tv that is almost 15 years old, time to buy a new one.
