Display Problems In CRT TV/Monitor
By Jestine Yong on May 9, 2010
I suggest that you print out this images of CRT TV/Monitor display problems for reference. To some beginners, they do not know how a pincushion or a keystone distortion problem look like. It is important to know these images so that you will know which section to check when you test the CRT TV/Monitor with a test colour pattern program or generator.

my philips Tv screen 23 inches is turning on from the center going side ways which can be the problem
October 6, 2017 at 3:12 pm
Without hands on assessment to perform the voltage/signal test, I would not really know what would be the actual cause.

My CRT TV is not working.. anode high voltage is coming,crt base r,g, b voltage also ok. But tv screen is in off position. When i adjusted flyback transformer knobs then white colour came on the screen. But no grains.. Please help me sir..

Hi sir, my LG 15 inch crt monitor screen size horizontally has shrinken.
From the both side almost 1.5 inch. From setting I put it 100. Virtual size is ok, no problem. A local mechanic said it might be flyback transformer, but original one is not available. Could it be other problem? Thanks

Hi Md Nazmul,
If you get a non original flyback it can cause such problem. If the B+ voltage is good, safety capacitor value is within range and modulation diode/pincushion transistor is good then it can be the flyback.

My flyback is original. Crt never repaired since 2005. How much should be the B+ voltage?
October 9, 2017 at 9:36 am
Hi MD Nazmul,
Normal B+ voltage should be 110 vdc. Some designs may be higher.

got an old crt pc monitor.when switched on there is no display(brightness) nor any osd message.after some 5 mins brightness shows up gradually after heating up.any idea what may be the cause?
October 12, 2017 at 9:52 am
It could be due to weak pc tube or the heater voltage is low due to bad e-cap.

My neibour sent Hisense TV for repair. Model number TC2100SA. TV not coming on after lightning struck. I first cleaned board with brush. I started looking bulge cps, burned resistors, and other power supply.lfound the following parts burn=IC wc8705,cap 150uf 450v,cap220uf 160v,cap47uf 250v,cap1uf 50v,cap333 and R569,R718 and five diodes (RI57 MCI). I replace all parts TV still not making on. I trust and hope your guide can help me Taking you Stanford Ledwaba

Whenever I turn my CRT TV 21", all the lights gets off in the house and DVD plus others
What can be the problem?
March 11, 2018 at 11:49 am
Weird one, here... 1992 Sony Trinitron KV27EXR 20. On TV mode, static fills the screen... Hook a console up to it (via RF, S-Video or Composit RCA) there's slight keystoning. I cleaned about 26 years of dust out of it, but if course that didn't help. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

My Hitachi TS-6442 26" CRT TV has a picture which is dark on the left and bright on the right. Any suggestions?
May 15, 2018 at 10:48 pm
how do i check whether the signal from the driver transistor is reaching the H.O.T using a multimeter?.

Sir my crt tv picture is ok but after few seconds series bulb going
to bright and going to off. After restart automatically and continous this process. How to repair this problem

My sony tv turning on and displays volume line and channel number .but not picture is shown and audio is also on.what can be the problem please???
July 16, 2019 at 7:59 am
It could be missing heater voltage, too low the G2 voltage, G1 voltage could be improper, no high voltage, bad Video pre-amp IC and etc.

I have 21" crt tv. Half of the screen left side is black and the right side is works fine. There is "tik tik" sound. What will be the problem?
August 2, 2019 at 7:23 am
The screen problem might be due to lack of B+ voltage, dry joint or bad components in the horizontal linearity circuit. The sound could mean the flyback have problem.

i have a an old crt computer monitor that switches on shows a "no signal video cable connected" message then it goes back to sleep /idle as if its vga cable is not connected to anything even though it is ,its OSD don't show up when i click the menu button during that brief message,the monitor was fried trough its vga cable by a faulty computer psu that also fried another LCD that someone fixed for me

how R U? am from Ethiopia my question is I have Samsung 21 Crt tv unfortunately after the drops down of the tv is not able to deliver sound and picture except blinking of starting power but the screen is still black. I open the cover but nothing is broken. so what i shall do to fix this problem and what you advice me as a technician?
April 1, 2020 at 2:17 pm
I'm fine thanks. In your case you need to check if there is any hairline cracks. Power blinking can be due to many reasons. I suggest thhat you make sure the power supply produce good and stable output first before check on other parts. No picture can be due to the flyback not energized or even broken picture tube.
