Old 1995 Big screen T.V.

My uncle gave me an old t.v. that I would like to fix. It is a Toshiba Cinama Series model # TP8D90. The sound is great, the picture not. It appears like it is doubled. Everything lookes doubled. It is had to read words becuase they are doubled. Any way to fix it? If so can I get an estimate?
Thanks

Your television might have a build-up of dust inside it. The small electrostatic charge that TVs have attracts dust and other particles which can interfere with functionality. I just fixed mine tonight by:

1. Turning off and unplugging the TV.
2. Putting the soft brush attachment on the vacuum hose and carefully vacuuming through the tiny vent slits on both sides of the TV's rear.
Hope that helps.........

You need a manual convergence youd have to open it up clean the color guns properly and throuroughly and manually adjust the color guns to the proper setting. maybe even any mirrors for deflection if any.

    I dont think it would be anything blown with convergence. I see this all the time with older tv's people receive they just need to be readjusted back to the factory settings so all the colors are in sync.

    an estimate for a proffessional. Like for the service i run it would cost 75 dollars plus fuel and we would come clean everything and do a manual convergence. If thats all it is, where i live they range from 75-200 dollars depending on the tv and if they have to come to your house.

The signal loss along with channel 4 is the only thing on TV screen. The other TV is fine. Checked connections all seem to be fine.


Are you connecting TV receiver box (example: DirecTV receiver); or what is the source? What TV are you using - a new flatscreen / HD or an old big TV? AN old TV - tube type? You have to get to the right input and sometimes it can be blocked by a Vchip parental wring selection.

Samsung UN40FH6030 won't start, no picture, logo screensaver is only picture received


logo is the startup screen like dos old pc's. would say there is a problem with the control system for the startup usually a memory fault. turn off at wall and leave off for a few hours to dis charge then try again it can be a fault in the logic board. dust and static can play a big part in the problem the parts are so small the dust and a little damp cause the problem. somtimes a good clean out of the board can fix this.

I guess the obvious question is, do you have a DirecTV dish installed on your house? If you do, then most likely the cable you have plugged into the Satellite Input on the back of the receiver isn't connected to the dish. I would recommend calling DirecTV and having them send a tech out to double check the system.
