    Possible Tube damage on Sony Trinitron

    Long story short, I was dumb put my trinitron on a folding table. Table leg gave and my tv fell. Ive tried degaussing it with a wand and turning it on and off with thirty minutes rest in between. None of that has corrected the problem. I was hopping some one might know of reputable crt repair place in Los Angeles. The issue is one of the corners has a blue tint now. Any help would be appreciated. Model number is kv-24fv300

    The fall could've shifted the purity rings on the neck of the tube, an idea.

    Why would you put a crt on a folding table?

    Around my way, people give away Trinitrons. Your probably better off finding one locally Vs. Taking it to a shop and paying whatever they want to charge you to fix that.

    Dumb question, have to tried the TV in different parts of the house, kind of looks like magnetic field interference.

    I did try it in different rooms thanks for the suggestion though. On just getting another tv I have had this tv forever and I dont want to toss it out just yet. I want to be sure there is nothing that can be done to fix it first.

    I hear you. Go for it, maybe it's a easy fix.

    I wouldn't be against opening it up and checking the purity rings, it's not overly complicated or dangerous at least from an inspection point of view to see what has moved. Don't send it in to the repair guy just yet!

    An update on the tv. Sadly the tube was damaged from the fall. They corrected the color with some magnets but that introduced some geometry issues. I'll play with the service menu to see if I can fix any of those eventually.

    It looks a little better in person but that's the best they could do.

    That's still a pretty decent improvement. Probably not so noticeable on non-white screens.
