yes audo on direct tv also on dvd but no video on eather
Okay. One last question, do you see video atleast for a split second when you turn the TV on?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
no type of video no snow no anything
Okay. I wish I had a "press-a-button" fix for this. The problem seems to be with the video output circuitry or the CRT filament connections. If the filament isn't glowing then there might be bad solder near the CRT neck around the flyback. If you want to repair it yourself then you should be having proper knowledge about the internal circuitry of the TV.
You should also require a multimeter and soldering equipments and schematics.
If you wish to take it to a repair shop would you like to have an idea of the cost of repair?
If you have any other queries then I would be glad to assist you further.
