Question about Mitsubishi CS-40505 TV
The screen is black, we have audio. this is my mom's tv. the cable tech says it could be the tube. is this possible to repair and is it costly. the tv was purchased in may of 1996 thanks pagman
Bad technicians always say picture tube problem when the TV has black screen with sound. This a false statement and in some cases techniciacns use this to scare the owner or the charge a hefty amount. The truth is that picture tube outlast most component in the TV. If it will fail, it is gradual like the colors will fade or one or several color will be missing. This condition is the degration of the filament in the gun (CRT tv has three -Red, green , blue) I started to repair TV in the early 80's and only in one occasion that the Tube fail and it is a crack in the neck. For black screen with sound, the most common cause is the HV supply problem / Horizontal section. This can be caused by many things, like flyback transformer failure, horizontal outout transistor, horizontal drive, etc. For the cost-depends on where you are, in some countries labor is dirt cheap, in other ountries the parts are expensive.
