how do you fix that and what would it cost approximately?
Expert:  TOM replied 7 years ago.
The pix tube would be worth the whole set .If you were able to find it,It would cost as much as set is worth.I would not recommend repairing it
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
If we could find a pix tube, would it be something my husband could replace himself? he is very mechanical
Expert:  TOM replied 7 years ago.
He may but he would have to take tv all apart and basically assemble again.The tube you would get would be rebuilt
