Question about Samsung TXF2899 28" TV
Samsung TXF2899c CRT TV. The set has a beautiful picture (rich color, sharp ...). BUT after the TV has been on for 30 seconds or so, the picture fades and the left side crumbles and then the picture disappears and finally the TV shuts off. If I shut it off for 10 seconds or so, before it shuts itself off, the picture comes back and plays beautifully for the rest of the day.
The TV was doing the same thing a few months ago (except that the fading happened at random times), until the picture totally died (wouldn't come on at all). The service man changed the flyback transformer and the picture came back, but when I took it home, I found the modified problem I described above, where the TV fades/shuts off after 30 seconds ... etc.
Can someone please offer some clues as to what may be causing the problem.
There are some components in the scan amplifiers, and or the power supply area that have become unstable. This can happen with age and use. It is impossible to make an accurate assessment without actually troubleshooting the set.
You need an experienced TV service tech that is strong on troubleshooting, has the service manuals, and has the proper set-up to work on your set. I would recommend the factory service rather than an independent service tech unless you know for sure that the independent service tech can handle this type of repair.
Considering the age of the model of set that you have, I would be looking at replacing it rather than fixing it. Because of the age of the set the reliability will be decreased.
