Sound, no picture...please help!

Like others on this forum, I am experiencing the 'sound, but no picture" condition. Someone mentioned that there were 'a few things' that could be tried, but never said anything else. Can anyone elaborate on these 'things', please?? Thanks so much in advance!!

Since I can't see your screen, I'll guess.

If the picture shrinks away in the vertical, fast or slow, it is in the vertical control circuit.

If the whole picture shrinks in both axes simultaneously, the high voltage circuit is the culprit.
This section is responsible for producing the accelerating voltage for the beam so if it is dropping out (quite common after years of use) there will be nothing to speed the beam to the phosphor to produce light.

Turn up the intensity when the picture drops out to see if you have any trace of light.
If not, it is the latter problem.

If you can still see a horizontal line that flickers a little (from video content) then it is the first problem described.

IF the flyback (HV) transformer is still available, it will cost somewhere between $25-$100 US (many lower cost sources have disappeared) plus labor.
Depending on whether the fault was the flyback or the high power transistor that drives it, there could be additional parts needed.

Since you indicated that it operates OK for a while, it could also be something as primitive as a failed solder joint and these can be tough to find (=$$ labor).

You have not specified the condition of audio with your TV. If audio [sound] is present, and no picture is the fault, the horizontal output section circuit should be trouble shooed. In most cased, this type of fault can occur if the LOT {line Output Transformer} has damaged. It will be best to contact any experienced service technician to confirm the fault. It will look like this.

Tv will not show a picture

It sounds that LOT {Line Output Transformer} to your TV is faulty. It is leaking out high-tension voltages to surrounding components. If so, there will be crackling sound will be heard inside the TV. Caution: Never switch ON this set, till the fault has been rectified, other wise, more components will get damaged. Contact any experienced service technician to get it repaired.

My 32" Sanyo HDTV from Walmart has problems with the picture and sound blinking off. You must push on TV to get the picture and sound to blink back on. Sometime it stays and sometimes it goes right off...

Sounds like you have bad solders in or around your tuner ***`y .Try knocking on the cable input while it`s working, this might confirm bad solder or cable connector. In case of bad solders you can take the cover off, the tuner will be right at the end of that connector and mounted on the circuit board . The bad solders are often on the p.c board itself . If you feel handy with a soldering iron you can resolder the tuner on the board, otherwise you might need the help from a local repairman. In any case you will know what is going on
Hope this will help Good luck

Hello to all, I have a tv zenith model C27V36, and it has a problem I connect it in the series and it does not turn on and I connect it to the network(net) and immediately burns (damages) the horizontal exit that is a trasistor C5905 and it burns (damages) both resistances of the protection,I changed the trasistor C5905 for a trasistor C3997 that is 20 amps and nonetheless it burns it,there are no signs of short circuits. Could the problem be the high horizontal ocsilacion?? But since turning it on it burns(damages) the horizontal exit I do not have way of checking it, because it is automatically damaged . can someone please tell me what to do in this case??? Or where I can find an electronic diagram or a sketch??? Or can someone who has worked on this TV before h

Emerson EWF2705, when pressing power it sounds like it is coming on but nothing happens

Hello DEBM,


The problem with your television appears to be in the high voltage power supply or the low voltage power supply. The set tries to come on but the shutdown circuitry turns the TV off. The shutdown circuit is a protective measure put into place to prevent overcurrent and overvoltage conditions by shutting down the TV when these conditions exist. If you do not have a background in electronics, might I suggest that you have a TV technician to come to your location and work on the TV.


I hope this helps

Thabk you,

Hissing Sound

A hissing sound that comes from the back of the set (not from the speaker) usually indicates a high voltage leak, most likely around the "suction cup" at the top of the picture tube or around the flyback transformer. Remove the back of the set and turn it on, and when you hear the hissing sound, shut off all the lights in the room and you should be able to see a purple-ish or white-ish glow from the spot that is hissing. Shut the set off, discharge the high voltage and clean and seal the problem area. Of course this should be done by someone experienced with stopping high voltage leaks.

Dead TV - Please Help

It is possible that there are failed components in the CRT bias circuits, or one of the scan circuits, or in the power supply, or in the high voltage section.

When any one of the areas fail, the set goes in to protect mode and biases off the CRT. If any of the other areas fail, the picture will also go black. In some models of TV sets, the sound is not critical of these areas that are mentioned here.

To fix this problem, proper troubleshooting of the set will be required. There are many components involved in the TV set that can cause failures to appear to be of this type.

You will have to have the set serviced by someone who is experienced and equiped to do TV service.

The TV does not have a reset button. If you have no picture and no sound, there is something wrong with the chassis. In this case the set should be serviced by someone experienced in the RCA CTC203 chassis. If you have no picture but do have sound, then it is possible that the 2 controls in the 2 little holes in the back of the set are not adjusted correctly. This is quite possible since you said you put a screwdriver in there and got a fuzzy picture. The control on the bottom is called "screen" and is the overall brightness of the picture and the control on top is called "focus" and is the sharpness of the picture.

No Sound on TV

In the menu option, see and make sure that the speakers are turned on and that the Mute is off. Also if all that is good then unplug the set for a good 24 hours. If that does not help, and your not experienced at repairing solid state electronics, please seek out a local repair person to trouble shoot this for you.
