I have a Symphonic 27" tv that I purchased 5 years ago. I was watching tv the other day, when the screen went black. When I tried to turn it back on the picture was a red,blue, and green color for one second then cut back off, is this a problem that can be handled with a repair guy, or should I just invest in another tv. Please Help!
I dont think it's worth getting a repair man to come fix a Symphonic TV... honestly, they are problem prone... and It would cost much less to just buy a whole new one. I have a symphonic tv with no remote, and now, I cant switch into game mode! It's like they designed their tv's to be crappy!

I WOULD SAY NO ! THE PICTURE TUBE IS PROBABLY AS MUCH AS THE TV IS WORTH. i had a very nice sony trinatron tv. the picture tube whent on it at about 5 years so I CALLED FOR REPAIR AND THE PICTURE TUBE WAS 2-300 DOLLARS. good-day !
this is a common problem,the vertical hold has been damaged.dont leave the teli. on,the white line will burn the middle of the screen and leave a black mark. You need a new integrated circuit(i.c.) for vertical hold.
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.
