Mitsubishi TV Problems HELP!!

Hello and thanks for stopping by,

I have a 20 in. Mitsubishi TV, that I purchased in 1992. THe past months I've been experiencing two major problems;

1. The picutre on the screen has been moving slightly to the left slide, leaving a black bar gap on the right side.

2. While the TV is operating, the picture and sound starts to flicker, the screen starts getting distorted and wavy, the color gets all mixed up. ANd the sounds of static roar through the speakers. (Quite scary! haha)

Well, if anyone knows a way I can fix any of these problems, that would be of great help. The sooner I can fix these problems, the more I can watch DIY on TV.

Thumbs up

Good evening, sphan27:

Not knowing how old the set is, I am assuming the set has graced your living room or den for a few years.

The problem is in the low voltage power supply and you have a filter capacitor that has failed. In short, you are putting 60 cycle AC in places that should be pure DC (direct current).

Here is a good site to have in your Favorites file on TV repairs:

Have a good day and come back to visit us often.
