Is it possible to fix a Mitsubishi TV that is almost 14 years old?
The TV picture has "waves" on the screen that appear on cable tv, DVD and antenna transmissions.

SOURCE: Fuzzy or blurry picture

Ok with you I can skip the "do you have electronics experience?" questions. With 14 years under your belt you are a pro. So here we go. The problem you are experiencing is called blooming/loss of focus this occurs when there is an increase in CRT anode voltage and control of the electron guns (in the CRT) is lost. The result is the picture spreads and focus is affected. The problem can some times be taken care of by adjusting the focus control However if you have auto focus the auto focus circuitry might be the problem. The common parts (areas) to check are as follows: 1) Focus control (to see if the problem can be soled by adjustment) 2) IHVT anode (test to see if voltage is correct you will need a schematic and a high voltage probe) 3) CRT Socket board ( Check to see if the bias voltages and input signals are correct you will need a schematic, multimeter and oscilloscope) These would be the areas to check, I hope that you are seeing my point here. My next bit advise if not one of your experience, you have that, 14 years of it. However, you have little ones and they are your NUMBER ONE concern, So my advice would be to get the set repaired at a TV repair shop. The reason being is because even though I have named some places to start your troubleshooting, TV repair is not an easy thing and there may be other components that could have gone bad and you don't have the time to do investigative troubleshooting. I wish you well on this issue and take care of those little ones. Respectfully Submitted, Shuttle83

SOURCE: JVC 27" CRT TV AV-27BP3 display shows single horizontal line

I have a similar problem on my CRT computer monitor (AcerView 76c). It is an old screen and I think it is just at the end of its life, much like your TV. Having some background in physics, I would be pretty sure that the problem is with the cathode ray tube's vertical deflection system. The horizontal deflection electrodes are working while the vertical one is not. This results in a display of a single horizontal line (or in my case, a few superimposed) in the centre of the screen. Where both X and Y (horizontal and vertical) deflectors fail then the electron gun firing would result in a single bright spot in the dead-centre of the screen.

So really, we have no choice but to move on and buy a new set as repair is probably just as, if not more, expensive than replacement with a new device. Seeing as your post was in 2007, I hope you managed to solve the problem.

Best wishes,

My TX is about 14 year old. The picture alwasy was excellent until we had an exlectrical storm that knocked out the cable box to the TV. With a new cable box the TV works. The picture has excellent color,...


Try your cable box on a different tv set and also try connecting the cable directly into the t.v, if that makes no difference then your tv set may have a power supply problem that was caused by an a.c line surge during that storm.

Sound takes up to an hour to come on, Mitsubishi 35'' tv


A $700 dollar estimate for a sound problem seems out of line - get asecond opinion (did some one look at it or just a guess). If the sound eventually comes on you probably have a connection (internal) problem or a intermittent part in audio section -cap o/p IC.
If you use a satellite or cable box can you hook your sound from that to an audio system thereby bypassing the TV?

Flatline!


the vertical drive ic that drives the yoke for vertical sweep has blown.
sometimes it is solder problems like sharp and toshiba had.
the part is 10$ the pc board will label it ,the yoke is the coil setup on the picture tube.if you follow the wiring half goes to the horizontal drive,and the others to the vertical section.the chip drives the coil directly.there are VERY high voltages in there ,even turned off. the pix tube cap on top is 30000v. like a stun gun.the horizontal drive 2000 volts and the main power supply 165 volts dc high current.you need a special setup to discharge the picture tube.

Our screen went black no picture only sound


Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the TV, and replugging it after 4 hours have passed. If this does not bring the picture back, then you should consider buying a new TV. The costs of a repair ( labor and parts) might exceed the cost of a new TV. Your 10 year old TV has served you well, and has exceeded the average life expectancy of 5 years. May it rest in peace in TV heaven.

Shaky Picture only during Advertisement or... Mitsubishi SC 27403


If you have cable then put the cable wire directly in the TV, bypassing the cable box. If the pix is Ok it proves that the problem is the cable box. If the problem is still there then it proves the the TV needs parts inside.

White horizontal, zig-zagging lines


It sounds to me like you're describing the re-trace of the unit. It is repairable, and more so the sooner you get it to the repair facility.

Might be a bad CRT or bad video output IC that drives the CRT that would cause this issue.

Thin vertical line


What you have described is definitely some form of Electrical Interference. Interference can come from a variety of causes. Is the Cable Inputting the Cable Box close to some High Voltage Electrical Lines? Or Are you located near some Electrical Power Station? Or A Police station, where the Radio Transmitter of the Police Station causing the Interference? As I said, there are a variety of reasons. Also, Try to check if the connector is loose at the rear of the Cable Box, or at the rear of the TV. You will have to eliminate every possibility reason. Wish i could help further.
