My picture is all scrunched up in the middle of the screen,black on the top and bottom,otherwise the width of the screen is fine! Is this a picture tube going bad or just an adjustment?


There's trouble in the set's vertical output circuit. Often this is because of bad solder connection, but there could be parts that need to be replaced as well. It isn't the picture tube going bad, though, so the set could be fixed. (Actually, even a bad picture tube can be replaced, but when the tube goes it's cheaper to buy a new TV!) Often just resoldering the connections in the affected area brings the picture back to full height. It's not unusual for capacitors in that area to wear out with age, but they're inexpensive parts.

The trouble with TV repairs is the labor cost. If you don't know anyone who has the skills to check over a circuit board and do electronic soldering, and to check and replace parts, you'll need to have a professional do it. The total cost of repairing a small TV might make it worth spending a little more on a new flat-screen LCD. They've really come down in price.

Most shops charge a fee (applied to the repair if you go ahead) to check the set and give a repair estimate. If you don't mind the gamble, get the set checked. Otherwise, start looking for a good sale on something new.

We have a panasonic colour television- The picture is very dull. we can't see the faces clearly and the title word also not readable.


The picture tube in the set has lost the capacity to produce a decent display, over the years the picture tube builds up a lot of crud in the guns and blocks the emission that controls the quality of the picture. There is an instrument that will burn away the coating, so more emission material is exposed, but this approach is very short lived and back to where you were if not worse. In order to fix this you will need a new picture tube and the cost would prohibited. I suggest replacing it in favor of a new one.

My Sony wega triniton KV32FV27 has washed out color, low contrast/brightness. it was recently in the shop where they"rejuvenated the tube" and "adjusted the screendrives and focus". It...


The picture tube emission is dropping causing the picture to become washed out, the rejuvenating process removes build up of crud from the guns exposing more emission material, this improves quality in the overall picture. But since the picture tube was done a week ago it suggests the guns have been stripped of their remaining material and the picture tube will get progressively worse over time.

Need picture tube replaced for rca television not


You have to get the exact type no. of the picture tube. Better buy a new TV. Picture tube will be expensive and no guarantee whether it will have sharp image l after replacement.

Sony Trinitron Picture Tube replacement


I think that you will find the picture tube to be more expensive than a replacement TV, if it is still available (unlikely). That being said, it is also unlikely that the tube itself is the problem, The more common problem is the horizontal output transistor or the flyback transformer. Either part should still be available for a reasonable cost. Check with a local servicer for the part numbers and costs. These are common parts.

12 yr. old 25" G.E. picture fading


I gotta love it when people make up answers. There is no such thing as a "contrass module". I'm assuming the poster meant "contrast". The trouble is your 12-year-old picture tube. It's gotten weak and isn't getting as bright or sharp as it used to. Picture tube manufacturers estimate the useful life of a tube at about 7 years today. There are adjustments inside that might help some, but you need a new picture tube. It's going to cost a lot more than $60 to $75 for that. You're better off replacing the TV.

Picture has lines going across


No picture tube is cheap to replace. Especially a Sony tube. And besides the cost of the tube there's the labor cost to install it and some tedious adjusting needs to be done to set up the replacement. When a picture tube fails it's time to replace the set.

Now having said all that, there are different kinds of lines that can show on the screen. Some are because the tube is bad, but others can come from less expensive parts on the circuit board in the set. Without seeing the lines for myself I can't tell you about yours. If you are wanting to keep the set, I would suggest having a qualified shop check it. The can tell you for sure if it's the tube or not, and give you an estimate for the cost of repair.

Picture flickers to blue screen.


After a typical picture tube ages it gets a coating of chemicals (carbon, phosphor and various metals form heater filaments) on the red, green or blue electron guns. This degrades any one or all three guns over time. There is a process to "zap" or rejuvenate the picture tube. A "good" TV repair shop will have the device to do this. The cost should be between 1 to 2 hours of repair labor. That equates to $75 - $150. The only thing is that this process does not clean the guns effectively and they can "cake up" again. Think of it as a coronary cleaning, it does not mean the "plaque" can build back up. It will, and usually within 1 to 3 years depending on how old the unit is and how long it is on per day. The other alternative is replacing the picture tube. 2 - 3 hours of labor plus parts. An average picture tube (after technician's mark up) costs anywhere from $100 for 13'" set to thousands. Looking at your model, it's a 31". I would guess at $400 - $500 just for the picture tube. I like Mitsu's. A good machine. Right in line with Sony on up. (and better in a number of occasions I have seen) When the cost of the repair is over 50% of the cost of the unit, that's when I declare it replaceable at the hospital system where I worked. (Over 900 TVs) You should weigh the price too.
Hope this insight helps - Let me know if it did.

Horiznal line across screen


The picture tube itself is not longer being manufactured and the replacement might exceed the price of a new TV.
The vertical line you see on the picture tube is not a failure with the picture tube but a different part inside the circuitry.
