A few weeks ago, I noticed that when I turned my TV on it was just black and white static for a few seconds, then would go to the normal picture.
Since then, the static has been lasting longer each time I turn it on (it's up to a full minute now), but the sound works as soon as I turn it on.
Once the TV is on, the color is darker than normal and the picture is getting progressively lower. For example, if I watch a news channel, I can't see the scrolling words at the bottom of the screen anymore and at the top of the screen, there is about an inch of just black.
Any ideas what might be wrong and/or how to fix it? The TV is only a few years old. Thanks!

Re: screen is messed up, getting worse
What your describing sounds like two differant problems OR the power supply is causing these two problems .. One would of course be the tuner and the other would be the vertical circuit .. Your going to need to seek out a profesional if you havent a clue about solid state electronicsand A tv is not a place to experiment! Good Luck

it seems the wire that used to connect between display circuit and motherboard connector has got problem. So please check each wire and also reconnect the connector which connect to the motherboard of your laptop.
It sounds like the circuit board is arching over somewhere. It could be as simply as cleaning and digging out the carbon mark to stop the arching. This is most likely the screen or focus voltage causing this, if there are no parts that have broken down. This will damage the printed circuit board and make things worse the more you let this cook. This could be dangerous for you to mess with because of the high voltage present, so my best advise would be to get this into the repair shop as soon as possible before this board burns up. It should not cost all that much if the CRT board can be repaired. Good Luck
