TV working OK after 10 months in garage, he saw it working and we carried it across the road to his house.
Saw him the next day and the TV will turn on (red standy by light on), you do not get a blue screen (I normally did before choosing the correct ext link)just a dark grey screen as if nothing is happening. When you go to turn it off by the button on the set; you get a horrible crackling noise for about a second as something is shorting out.

This suggestion is a little outside the box but I would hit garage sales and auctions or flea markets. These TVs are all over the place for as little as 10 dollars in all working conditions. Buy one that has the same size screen or larger and swap it out. On a larger one trim it down with a very fine tooth saw or masonary saw.
Your Convergence output is burnt.DONT turn that TV on until convergence IC's are replaced,orange glowing inside that you see it is resistors that overheating and burning.Unplug TV from outlet before more damage is done
Its all in you remote.you need to turn off cable box and then tv. then turn on box from remote and then tv. I have the same problem when someone in the house turns it on incorrectly. make sure you can see the network sign in corner of tv complete then you have it. you may need to do it a couple of times. tv off first then cable box. or tv on then cable . its been awhile since i had the problem
I got this TV for FREE from a guy posting it on craigslist because he saw "BLUE SWIRL LINES" also knows as "Retrace Line" on the screen and he went to several repair people and got high repair costs so he was giving it away for free, but i found a guide that tells you how to adjust the tv to make the blue or green or red lines go away, aparantly the line show up because the voltage on the color ray gun tubes that get out of adjustment. Here is the Link to the REPAIR GUIDE. http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html
