Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Hello, I have one Optonica t.v. model CS5449G bought sometime in 1995. It's working fine until now. But since a few months the picture at times gets faint and suddenly a normal viewing coloured one re-appears again. With each passing day the duration of normalcy restoration has increased considerably i.e. the time duration the picture seen fainter has increased beyond the tolerable limit and its a strain on the eyes to watch the t.v . What could be the solution? For, I do not wish to part with this quality product. Where the fault is genuinely addressed / repaired.

SOURCE: coloured sparkles appear in dark areas of picture

Sometimes just adjusting the VSCAN voltage inthe set will cure it. Other times it will be a faulty panel. Either case requires a technician to do the repairs.

SOURCE: Normal picture mode make the sharper picture quality but smaller screen apparance

If the broadcast is in 4:3 (square) then either you can have the black bars on the side, or the TV can stretch the image to fill the screen.
Nothing wrong with your set. The broadcast must be in 16:9 to fil the screen.

Hello

This is a warranty issue. Either take the TV back to SAM's club or call Vizio for a warranty repair.

TV screen goes black, sometimes for hours


This model series had a odd problem that caused this. It was the Hoizonal wire connctors for the yoke. If my memory serves me right, the Yoke wire harness went from Yoke to Yoke and plugged in at the casing of each yoke. What I found is the solder connection on the small board of each Yoke was intermitent. Please be careful if you choose to tackle this. It is in a HV Area.
Hope this helps,

Hello There!, Where can I get a T.V. Picture tube for my Sharp Optonica CS 5400 Model TV ?? (Near Goa or Bangalore)


You could try KOTHARI ELECTRONIC HOUSE 75, Sadar Patrappa Road,, Bangalore - 560002 (Karnataka) India Phone(s) : 080-2223351 Should cost around Rs.2500-3000. But, as the model you are mentioning is pretty old, is it worth replacing a Picture Tube? Think about it

Blurry Picture


I too had the same problem where my HT30744 TV would lose its color or picture would get blurry. My mom's HT32744 would have the same problem too. They both are refurbished models bought at Value City Dept store. If I gave the cabinet a good hit it would mostly fix the color, but it could also make the picture go fuzzy too, a clear sign of just a loose connection somewhere.

So after my wife telling me she was sick of this almost 2 year problem and she was going to buy a new TV on the weekend, I figured I had nothing to lose. So I took the rear cabinet off, unseated the card mounted on the picture tube, applied a little dielectric grease on the connector on the card and reseated the card, removed, re-greased and reattached the card. I have had no problem with either my or mom's which I did the same to since! This is an easy fix that anyone can do. The hardest part is moving the TV and reassembling the rear cabinet. Do not pull the cabinet back out more than you have to, to ease the reassembly of it.

LG 37 inch Flat Panel Loses picture


Take a camcorder and capture it, that should be enough proof that it's failing often enough to be repair right. When the picture goes out, can you see it dimly if you take a flash light to the screen? It might be a bad inverter.
