Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi my name isXXXXX go to work and find a solution for your TV problem.
What does it do, does the led on front flash a code?
The red light will keep flashing with no screen,
just keeps flashing steady red no pause?
right, If I press power again it'll have sound for about 5 seconds but the screen won't power up and red flashing continues.
Ok this is an old style CRT projection with High Voltage and 3 Pictures tubes, usually the led flashes a certain number of times then pauses then reflashes to give us clue as to what is going on, with out a fault cade it's going to be hard, are you going to try and trouble shoot your self? what type of information are looking for?
I just noticed it will flash 5 times then pause. I'm trying to troubleshoot it myself see if there is some part I replace or something I need to restart.
Ok the 5x is fault code for the a CRT that is failing, Not a very proctical repair to make ob this Tv but you might be able to make an adjustment and buy some time.
Just let me double check the code
Ok what's the adjustment.
Stand by just a minute I am going to double check the but the adjustment are made from the front of the tv, you have to remove the front cover and then a thin cover that covers the CRT boards
Remove front cover then what?
Ok once you remove the front peice and the cover there is a small block attached to the frame with six terminals on it 3 in one row then 3 more right below them you are going to have to turn unit off and adjust each one, one at a time slight to counter clockwise then restart unit and see if comes on.
you want to adjust the bottom row of
If you are unable to get it to come on and lite up, the there is possible a short on the one of the CRT boards, or the picture tube itself is shorted

bottom front below the screen, you have to remove that peice
once you get access to the inside, right side towards the top you will see the block with 6 screw terminals
Do you mean right side bottom?
