Question about Emerson SpongeBob SquarePants TV
The television is getting power as the power light on the front is on. However, there is no picture and no sound.
It sounds to me like makebe the horizontal output trasnistor is out. This is somethign that will need to be repaired by a technictian. If you are going to change this part yourself ( assuming for sure that is the problem ) always be very careful when opening the back of the TV. Always unplug it first, then discharge the picture tube as there could be as much as 30,000 volts of energy stored in it. The horizontal transistor is the biggest, black, nearly square transistor that is located next to the trasformer that has the large red wire going to the picture tube. You will need to solder it in. I do suggest you do have a qualified technitian do the job since there is some danger in working in the tv set.
I hope this has helped in some way.
