Hi - 2 and a half years ago i bought a Philips 36pw8719 crt from currys. Over the last number of weeks the picture has become blurry/hazy and it seems to be getting worse. Its not that noticeable when there are closeups but any scenes at a distance are not good. Any text that appears on screen is awful though. I have phoned Currys and they have told me that because it is over the year long guarantee period there is not much they can do(typical really). I have seen somewhere else about a G1 intermmitent short problem(no idea what this means). I paid approx £900 for the set in the UK here. Any ideas?

Re: Blurry/Hazy picture on Philips Tv
As your problem is
the picture has become blurry/hazy
1 it sounds me that there is a little sparking near high voltage section that is near flyback transformer.please get it check.
2 if it is ok then focusing anode wire going to crt base from flyback transformer is not making proper contact due to some foreign material deposited on it.
please call tech person if you ae not aware of it as tv is a very high voltage device.

Hello!I bought 12 years ago a SONY TV KV-28FX60D with out any technical issue so far.The last couple of days I powered on and after five minutes it starts showing only half of the screen, losing the bottom half of the picture. what do you think it might be. Can you suggest a part to be replaced and if it is worth fixing, cost wise? Thanks KONSTANTINOS
if you bought it under one year ago then the retailer should be obliged to either replace it or repair it. I would look into this further, ask to speak to the manager or something casue when a tv switches itself off it indicates an error inside and turns itself off to prevent further damage.
This isnt a simple fix for someone not used to electronics but here it is.
CONNECT A 390OHM RESISTOR BETWEEN W129 (GROUND) AND PIN 56 OF THE MICRO, PRESS BUTTON 7 ON THE REMOTE FOR A MINIMUM OF 6 SECS.
You have bad CRT Fluid, the green and Blue tube need the fluid changed. This is a messy and possibly dangerous to the tv proposition, you will want to call someone to change the fluid, you will probably spend $450+ for the repair, but it should look pretty good when done, possibly better than it has looked in years.
No sir its not just an adjust ment or "twiddling" It sounds like its one of the same as your girlfriends set except a differant part such as a capacitor in the vertical curcuit, Output IC or even a defective resistor?? Good Luck
