Unfortunately, this sounds familiar. Many of these sony projections had bad crt's.(picture tubes). Now here is a secret I learned along the way. The short in the picture tubes is in the filament, causing that color to overpower all others and sometimes causing pix to disappear until set is shut off and back on. If you are very careful and use an insulated screwdriver, you can sometimes tap on neck of picture tube and knock debris from filament causing extended tube life. This is dangerous and must be performed with set turned on. From front of set gently tap on neck of tube(s) in question using insulated handle of screwdriver to make contact with picture tube neck. Picture will probably flash whichever color tube is contacted. Eventually, if picture stops flashing that color as much, you can sometimes get several more months out of your set without any problems. Only alternative is to try a crt rejuvinator or replace tubes at a cost of 200.00 each if avail. plus labor. Good luck, Russmann.

My Nikon Coolpix S01 takes a very faded picture, which also shows on the screen. What caused this, and is it fixable?


All I can think of is either white balance, or exposure compensation. Have either of these deviated from the norm ?

Fadeing of picture RCA P52937


Sounds like it could be your bulb going bad I would check some places like rivervalleyelectronics.net or hdtvpartstore.com and see if they have your bulb is in stock it may not be to cheap but i beats buying a TV. I would direct you to the manufacturer but they probably have stopped supporting this type of tv.
