You will need to get the schematics to the tube that you have a socket for and then identify which are the heather, cathode and etc and then you can use micro clips that you can color code, and then just do the pin outs for the various tubes your testing. I used that same proceedure with my B&K tube rejuvinator and it worked like a charm i bought the micro test leads from radio shack and just cut the old type socket of which I knew the pin outs on and then its easy to pin out the newer tubes

I have audio but no picture on my Zenith Z50PG10 50" plasma tv?


Plasmas are like tube TV's(CRT). Once the plasma tube breaks, air gets in, plasma gas gets out. And that's it. They are an enclosed vacuum picture tube. I don't know why people buy plasma. The newer LED have a much better picture. Rich people who swear by plasma, are ridiculous in my opinion. Again, if plasma tube breaks, thats it. Any wrong jarring can break a plasma tube.

Thomson colour tube is gone


If you had mentioned that the picture tube is defective and confirmed it is a serious fault. You can rejenuvate the picture tube with a gun tester and short remover.This is not a confirmed solution but you can take a last try. Changing the picture tube is not recommendable for an old set and I would like you to go for a new Tv which will work out cheaper and gauranteed.
Hope you decide sensibly. Good day

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.

Foggy Picture


dear friend your picture tube has a crack in it! probably in the back of it at the neck, or at the picture tube socket pins. it maybe leaking vaccum and taking on some air! have a local tv shop check the picture tube on a tester!

No Power


Try removing the Green CRt PC voard that is on the bottom of the green Picture tube which is the center one. Then replace the fuse and see if your set powers up if it does you need a new gree tube. Just be sure the crt board doesnt touch anything while you try it. then let me know what happened, if you need a tube they arent available new any longer but I have a source for good used picture tubes,

No light in middle rear projector of RCA p52936.


The P52926 uses the PTK195 series chassis. The middle "rear projector" is actually the Green Picture Tube. If the red and blue tubes are working then all major components of the set are fine. The only things I can think of that would stop the green tube are cracked solder joints on the green picture tube socket PC board or an open high value (100k - 120k ohm) resistor on that board. If you do not have experience testing and replacing small parts or resoldering boards in a projection set then have a qualified tech handle it for you.

The set does not have a blue lamp. The set has a blue picture tube. I have found that the best RCA parts distributor is Union Electronics at 1-800-648-6657. The picture tubes in projection sets are very fragile and dangerous to handle. The new picture tube will come dry, so the lens assembly and seal will have to be assembled onto the new tube and then filled with fresh coolant. The set will then need a complete realignment, everything from screen and focus voltages, bias and drive, yoke and ring position to convergence circuits. If you have no experience in any of the above, do not attempt to replace a picture tube. Allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.

RCA Model # 20F510TD TV/DVD


What makes you think the picture tube is bad? What exactly are the symptoms you see? The RCA 20 inch picture tube is a good quality long lasting tube and I doubt I have ever seen a bad one.

The solder could be loose in the CRT board witch is at the end of the picture tube neck,before you take the back cover out try a simple test put your forearm in the face of the picture tube and the hair should stand with the tv on that will mean you do have high voltage going to the picture tube but if the hair in your forearm does not stand with static it means the picture tube is missing high voltage and then reason for that is not necessarely a loose conection but a bad component in the main board.If you not familiar with tv service be safe and call for assistance.
