    My problem is rather the same but the picture tubes show a horizontal line across the top, this does not show on the screen itself but when I am looking into the tubes when I turn on the power the lines appear indicating that the tubes receive some type of high voltage but no video signal to display.

    First I have checked the capacitors in the poser supply board and hove only found one bad or low capacitor of 1000 mf that read 850mf and replaced it.
    I have also checked the capacitors around the vertical I.C. in the board where the stk's are and they seemed ok.

    A problem I noticed was that when I changed a capacitor in the board where the flyback transformer is located, I broke a line that lead to the (h)+ plug on the board, this problem caused the picture tubes to not turn on at all when I re-connected the tv. this capacitor is near the large transformer that is not the flyback transformer.

Your problem is a defect with the b+ going to the crt driver transistors such as a capacitor off the High voltage tranformer or could be a coil or resistor that changed value in the filiment curcuit. This is another hard one to say without more info. if yuo dont do any troubleshooting or dont have the know how then Im thinking its best that you call a pro.. Good Luck

When taking a picture tscreen is black and half pict is black

As long as there are no markings on the camera showing that you may have abused it, the warranty will cover it. Try lightly flicking the lens (not the glass, but the sides) a few times and see if that clears it up.

Tv turns on but takes about 20 minutes to show the picture

This is the picture tube. If you check shops you can find one that has a picture tube restorer. If they run just the cleaning process it will buy you some time. This is good some times for up to a year

Tried turning on my Sony and no picture no sound, just a black screen

Sony is known for having problems with the picture tube. Sometimes it will blink on and off. also bad connections on the main board. A CRT restorer will sometimes help with picture tube problems but this must be done by a tech that has one.
