Q:

A:

Barbara, sorry to tell you this but looking at the model # you listed there are very few parts still available for this model. the cost of TV's have came down a lot over the last few years and any repairs on a TV of this model and age are usually not cost effective. you could have a sears TV tech come out and look at it for a diagnosis and estimate for repair but would probably tell you the same thing as I am for free. the least amount for a TV repair would be a few capacitors at around 250.00 for the trip charge and parts and labor. but usually most repairs are in the 300.00-400.00 range or more and just a little bit more you can have a new TV.

you did try another source for the TV like a dvd player or something just to rule out a cable issue. and did you try the menu with the remote if the menu will not display on the TV then go with the post above. I got a little ahead of myself.

Thank you for your response. I did try the menue button on my cable remote but nothing came up, the screen remained black. Does it pay to take the capacitors out and replace them myself. I looked up on youtube and it said you could go to an electronics store and buy replacement capacitors and replace them yourself. Is this possible. thanks again

okay no menu then it's not a cable company issue. yes you can change caps on a circuit board. but they need to be soldered on the board and it takes a certain knack for soldering components on a circuit board without damaging the circuit board beyond repair. and which caps would you replace how would you know for sure if the caps are even bad. diagnosing and testing of the circuit boards to find the issue would need to be done by an electronics technician. sometimes you can see a cap is bad by the large bulge on top of it but other times they need to be tested to know for sure.

Thank you for your question. Televisons do not last as long as they used to.  I see you have audio, but no picture.  If the menu on screen displays still come up, check the feed sources; cable, antenna, Satelite, DVD, VCR, etc. If there is no screen display, then it would be a TV problem. Check the power/timer light to see if it is blinking. That is normally a diagnostic. If there is no pattern to the blinking, it may indicate out of adjustment circuitry for the colors. That will produce a black screen. This would require service due to the high voltage. This may also be the lamp. Older projections TV's like this one have no major component parts still available. It may be time to shop for a new TV unless you know a repair shop that may have older working parts around. If you would like to do some online shopping, you can start at Sears .  Thank you for using Manage My Life.
