Question about Sylvania SRT2420P TV

Sylvania SRT2420P no picture no sound

This morning, I turned on my Sylvania SRT2420P with the remote, it came on, then the screen turned black with a wide grey fuzzy screen, then nothing. No picture, no sound. Sears now has this model for about $120. Is it worth getting fixed, or should I just buy a new one. My telly is 2 years and 5 months old.

With the TV disconnected from the mains, remove the back. Clean out dust with an artists long wooden handled brush, see if anything is burnt or blackish. Do not disconnect anything to do with the Tube. Check for any disconnected wires. If all looks well, you may try it with the back off, but do not fiddle with anything in the back, while switched on. Look at the tube base just in front of the Printed Circuit Board attached to the tube base. You should see a glow from the three filaments which heat the cathodes. If there is the tube is still OK, But the line timebase has stopped working. If nothing is working look for blown fuses. Do not just replace them, but let a service engineer know, or write to FixYa again giving more information and your own capability.

Now days the tv's are not expensive as they used to be however the repair charges have not changed much therefore you will be looking at more than half of the price of a new one.It might be better to invest in a new set.

My flat screen Sylvania TV is flashing different colors what's wrong

Better late than never. The problem is that your TV is in the service mode. There are many ways this can happen. But, lets just get down to fixin this! With the original remote and the TV on. If the TV will not shut off, do this. Press the left cursor button on the remote, followed with pressing the right cursor. Power off the TV with remote, or press off button on TV.

Secondly, your TV will power on and off. But you have flashing colors. Do this. With the original remote and TV on. Press the up cursor button, on the remote, followed with pressing the down cursor. Power off TV with remote, or press off power of TV. Thanks for asking me, Matt of Martins TV Repair.

My screen shrunk from top to bottom and now is 5 inches in height

it is obviously faulty in vertical scanning section.
if you're knowledgeable on that area,look for dried capacitor which caused the problem or else find a qualified technician to fix the problem.
