Question about Sanyo HT32744 32" TV

2 Answers

Blurry Picture Picture fine sometimes, maybe for a few months with no problem, then gets blurry RGB all run together. The set will work fine for a few days/hrs/min and then the problem starts again for a few months. Sometimes I'll cut it off and back on and its ok. Sanyo has offered some assistance, even though the warranty has expired, but have no way of getting this 150lb. set to the location. Purchased set from Wal-Mart about 3yrs ago, problem started about 1 1/2 yrs. after. Please help.

I too had the same problem where my HT30744 TV would lose its color or picture would get blurry. My mom's HT32744 would have the same problem too. They both are refurbished models bought at Value City Dept store. If I gave the cabinet a good hit it would mostly fix the color, but it could also make the picture go fuzzy too, a clear sign of just a loose connection somewhere.

So after my wife telling me she was sick of this almost 2 year problem and she was going to buy a new TV on the weekend, I figured I had nothing to lose. So I took the rear cabinet off, unseated the card mounted on the picture tube, applied a little dielectric grease on the connector on the card and reseated the card, removed, re-greased and reattached the card. I have had no problem with either my or mom's which I did the same to since! This is an easy fix that anyone can do. The hardest part is moving the TV and reassembling the rear cabinet. Do not pull the cabinet back out more than you have to, to ease the reassembly of it.

Your problem is a CRT socket .it is a white plastic with 7 or 9 pins that attach to the picture tube,change that socket

You should test the TV set using a known good source such as a DVD player with RGB outputs to drive the set. If it is good, then this rules out the TV set from being at fault.

From experience, many times I found compatiblity issues between computers and TV sets. The computer's resolution and refresh rate must be set exactly to the TV's capability.

Screen goes from blurry to clear to blurry


The first thing to check is for loose conections,the problem is related to the high voltage but it can start in the main board with one component loose,when the high voltage is developed it goes to what is call the distributor block,a lot of sets have the focus and screen controls coming out of this block for each picture tube,this block might be bad but before we go to him we need to check everything is solid in the main board.If you are familiar with electronics you can remove the back cover and tap the chassis with a wooden or rubber handle to see if the set reacts,if it does you need to be atentive what area makes it react and flip the board to do some resoldering,If you are not too familiar with tv service you need the assistance from a servicer.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.

Sounds like theres a leaky capacitor in the screen drive circuit. I have seen this problem also be a gassy crt but was able to clean off the grids of the CRT with a crt/rejuvinator. It happens because of low emmissions in the tube and when white is on thats a mix of all the colors, so the tube works harder. I bet when you whatch a movie and the scene changes suddenly to a white or brite scene the pic looks a little washed out. If this is not the case then I aggree with the Pravin and try it on another TV just to be sure .. This is not a repair for a consumer to do, though however it is only a three year old set you stated, so there should be life left in the tube, so im kinda thinking a capacitor is bad. Seek out a yechnician to check this out for you as a TV is not a place to see it you can fix it or to exoeeriment with. Good Luck
