Question about Toshiba 32A33 32" TV
I am a retired A/V technician and I have the ability to replace this component if someone can locate a shematic and get the infor mation that I need...thanx, Franklin - muzitronixman/yahoo My Zenith 32A33 screen goes blue after it warms up and then it turns itself off and after it is back on, it looks like the picture has a translucent blue veil over it and there are darker blue slanted lines across the screen.

This is a very simple "fixable' problem for a Professional Technician. Should not take more than 15-20 minutes.
Actually, your description indicates that the blue gun in the tube itself is shorting out. This happens when the set has been on for a while and the metal parts in the CRT guns have heated up and actually contact each other. If the video output transistor is bad then your screen would be blue right from the start. An easy way to prove it is to monitor the voltage of the blue pin on the picture tube socket. It should measure around 150 - 175 volts. When the screen starts going blue you will see that voltage drop dramatically. Quickly pull the CRT board off the picture tube while watching the voltage on the blue pin. If the voltage jumps back up the instant the socket is removed, your picture tube is bad. There are CRT rejuvinators that have the "remove short" function, but that has about a 50% chance of success and I usually find that the short will return a few months down the road.
