I would not advise you to do any service to your tv if you are not experienced. there is high voltage in there and there is alignment procedures to do after installing the tube. It is best to order the original service manual they have a step by step replacement guides in them.

Not spinning

the motor brushes need replaced
because they are worn

you can type your model number into ebay and buy a set
its an easy job to change them and you tube have some nice videos just type how to change motor brushes on a washing machine look at a few of the tutorials and then go for it

youll do no harm and save a few quid
but if you dont feel like it then ask a pal who knows
or buy in someone too do it
getting them the part and just pay them too fit it
and avoid getting ripped off... should cost no more than £60 max for the service

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN GET A RCA 263048 or 258485 part please? It is the RED TUBE.

The part number suggests an older set--many of those the only way to get a CRT is send the old one out to a few companies who will rebuild the CRT.

I have a Sony KP-57WS500 57 in. Rear Projection Television with the color red tube not working i want ot know how much 4 a new one and how hard it it is ti change.

Sony does not make the tube available. They want you to remove the Red CRT with the Optic coupler and send it to them so they can remount a new CRT to the old Optic Coupler and they will send it back to you. This usually cost $300.00 to $400.00. It is a major tear down to remove the CRT and there will also ba a alignment of the convergence after the CRT is reinstalled. If you are really interested in doing this, let me know and I will do my best to give you instructions. Something else to consider is that the other 2 CRT's will likely need replacing soon. It is a lot of money to put into a older set that Sony is not supporting anymore. When you add up the parts cost alone for all three it is $900.00 to $1200.00. With the prices of LCD panels coming down in price you could replace the set for the cost of the parts alone.
I hope this helps,

Cannot upload pictures from LG Shine phone to computer

If your pics are on your card for sure than you may half to remove the card and connect it directly to your computer. The file may have been
saved to the wrong part of the card. This may not be the answer but it
has happened to me in the past. If you have not saved the pics to the
card that is your problem. You must save the pics to the card and try again. You should be able to select a pic and move it to the card.
after you do either of these two ideas you should be able to move your
pics to your computer. hope this helps.

What is crt i thought somthing was sprayed in my set.i cant upload pics but its the board with the 2 windings and the power cord plugs on it.its the only one with the fuse in the bottom tray ill try and...

CRT stands for cathode Ray Tube (picture tube) which just needs a new seal which is minor. You will need to replace your board the other site I work for has new RCa circuit boards. I am including a pic of part 264102 thats not the board where the power cord enters.But let me know if this is the board or not and I will post pics of the other boards in that chassis.492f279.jpg

There is not that much high voltage on the projection tubes

Pull the red annode lead from the flyback transformer
Careful not to touch the end of the red lead

Brush the lead across the metal frame that the crt was housed in and that should disapate the hv
If you are not sure it is gone then stick it on the metal again

Remember the tv mus be unpluged befor you attempt this

Good luck
