What would cause a Sharp Linytron television to have no picture and no sound yet the fuse is OK?
TV's have a built-in power supply (Switched Mode Power Supply - SMTP) to convert 110V AC to the required DC voltages plus the Extra High Voltage (EHT) for the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT). If the fuse is OK and both sound and video are not present, then the fault is almost 100% with the power supply. Some older TV's have a fusible resistor in the SMTP that "opens" whenever there is over current - check a thick resistor (usually a wirewound resistor)in the SMTP to see if it is open, Other faults that I haev discovered are the power transistors in the SMTP (usually there are 2/3 MOSFETS) - check id these are shorted or open using a multi-meter. RepairFAQ is a wonderful site that gives a lot of info on this - if you arehandy with a soldering iron and a multi-meter, this is the site for you: http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/smpsfaq.htm . If you are not hands-on, don't waste time trying to get it repaired through a repair shop - you will spend as much on the repair as you would on a brand new TV. And LCD TV's are falling in price - you can even buy a 20" LCD display for $170+ and an external tuner for $50 - or a fullfledged LCD TV for $300 .... Good luck
I had this problem where the Fios remote control stopped responding to inputs on certain screens like the DVR, menu, or program guide screen. The issue was infrared interference due to the Panasonic TV picture mode. If you have a Panasonic TV and the picture mode is set to VIVID it can cause this issue. Set the picture to a different mode and you will be fine.
How come my Quaser 27 in TV picture keeps flashing then goes black does the picture tube need replacing?
The problem you describe might be the tube, but there are other parts of the television that can cause similar effects. You will need to have it checked at a TV repair center and they will also be able to tell you how much a new tube could cost. In these days of very low cost televisions, it is quite likely that the tube will cost more than a new television.
Is it true that many modern electrical appliances and devices contain a capacitor which can store a significant electrical charge that can cause a shock even if the appliance is not plugged in?
The biggest offender would be a Cathode Ray Tube picture tube in a traditional TV. I am not aware of any house hold appliances that would fall into this category. Even in a CRT TV you wouldn't get shocked by touching anything outside the TV, like the power cord. You would have to be messing around inside with the picture tube. However, from personal experience I was thrown across a room by messing with an…
You probably have it set for non-interlaced picture. A non-interlaced picture scans every line on the monitor in sequence and this can cause flickering. Setting it to interlaced will cause the raster to scan every other line and then go back and scan the lines it skipped on the first pass. Televisions do this routinely to prevent flickering but its user-selected on computers.
What causes sharp middle back pain to the buttock and stiffness to the right leg and cause falling down?
You don't say if this is with a video in or not. If it is when you are trying to play a movie you need to find the tracking button on the remote or TV. If it is an older TV this could be cause by thevertical or horizontal holds. These are in the back of most older TVs and you use a screw driver to turn them until it stops. If you are on…
