Very expensive. depends on what the tv cost. how old is the tv? 36 inch tubes are high, especially now that glass tvs of that size are becoming rare. I didn't check the specs on that tv, but if it is not hi-def you might as well upgrade. I like rca too, its my favourite, but they don't last forever.

However if it is merely the transformer, that could be less than $100. You may be able to get a free checkup for the tv/estimate or maybe one for under $50. those tvs weigh a ton though...

Picture is a blue screen but the cable and sound still works. The picture briefly appears when we turn on the tv then it fades to blue. Its a Prima tube tv.


It sounds like the picture tube is shorting at the blue gun. Most of the time it is not cost effective to replace the tube. Have a repair shop check it out and see if that is the problem. Thanks

Need a picture tube for Pro Scan TV


HELLO

If your TV needs a new tube my advice is: FORGET IT! A new tube will cost a ridiculous amount of money (more than new TV).

If you cannot get a standard CRT TV brand new, then I'm sure you'll find many good ones in a second-hand store, or advertised locally.

ALL THE BEST! (:-)

It may be a fruitless effort. The main reason this occurs is that the Picture Tube is drawing too much current and the AKB circuit will not let the video circuit diplay the picture. Outside
of replacing the Picture Tube there is no fix.
You can varify this by turning the screen control up. This is usaully located on the HV transformer and is marked. the other location it may be is on the CRT board. It also would be clearly marked. If you adjust this slightly and the picture appears, the Picture Tube is the problem. I'm betting 100% it's the Tube.
Hope this helps,

Hi

It will not be the picture tube. Your set will have cracked solder joints in and about the vertical output stages. This is not a major repair, and will require re-soldering of that stage, and maybe a few capacitors replaced as a cursory repair as preventative maintenance. should cost between $50-80 depending on who you get to look at it. If you are quoted a price higher than this, I suggest ringing around repair guys in your area and be careful to explain exactly what you have described the fault as here.

Hi there!

Something did Pop and yes it will cost 150 - $300 to repair. The question is what would a new unit of the same size and quality cost. If the repair is about a third of the cost of a new unit , it would still be considered economical in RSA. If repaired it may run again for another 4 years so the Math speaks for itself. The decision entirely yours in the end. It could really be anything that popped so to give advice would be difficult. However, try the fuse first. It is certainly the cheapest option at the moment. Regards and good luck, JUS004

Dark picture and green tint


Most TVs of that caliber have a life expectancy of about ten years.. In 2009 we'll be passing into the HD era and that Tv won't work without a little help from an HD converter. What you're describing sounds like some transistor problems on the crt board and possibly voltage regulation. Not too expensive for a reputable shop, but my best advice would be to get an estimate first. If you need help finding a reputable shop contact NESDA, (National Electronic Service Dealer's Assn.) they should be able to direct you to a member's shop in your area. Its like going to the AMA to find a doctor. If the cost is more than half the cost of buying new - get a new one... Good Luck Bill
