The estimate is close to what I can pay for a new unit, I can buy a new unit for a few more dollars. What's your suggestion? Of course you can, but remember that if the item you are repairing is a high-quality piece of electronic equipment, then in all likelihood, you've had it in use for years. If you pay a few extra dollars for a new unit rather than having that one fixed, you'll likely end up with a unit of far less quality. back to top
My TV was working last night, but I cannot turn it on now. What went wrong? Most people think the power on/off switch is defected. There are different things that can cause this problem. However, defective power regulators and horizontal circuits are usual suspects. This generally is the problem in and is repairable back to top
My TV has one thin, straight color line across in the middle of a screen. Is the picture tube bad? No, 99% of the picture tube is good, but the TV vertical deflection circuit has failed, and it can be repaired. Mistakenly, many TV owners tend to think their picture tube is bad. back to top
What's the problem when a rear projector TV colors are separated (no convergence)? Projection TV's use three separate monochrome picture tubes, namely red, green and blue CRT's or picture tubes. There is one among the printed circuit board (PCB) inside a TV set, called convergence PCB that brings these three main colors together to generate any color at any point on the screen. When the convergence circuit fails, the colors are shipped, and it looks like three different images (red, green, and blue images). In some models when the convergence circuit fails, TV sets cannot be turned on. Don't worry, we can solve the problem. back to top
My TV is a couple of years old, when I turn it on there is no picture. Is the picture tube bad? If there is no picture, then it could either be a video, audio circuit boards, or power supply sources problem. We have found that a very small fraction of TV repairs involve a bad picture tube. back to top
