So you say the color is

So you say the color is twitching....

2 questions: Was it twitching before or after you worked on the popping question?

Is the color twitchy from all of you gear (DVD, VCR, Cable, Sat), or only from 1?

Sorry bud, I'm out of ideas.

Sorry bud, I'm out of ideas. If it happens on everything it's obviously not a connection issue. I've seen a few guys that seem like repair techs floating around the forums. Maybe one of them can give you more technical info than I can.

I'd say that if you're not afraid to poke around the inside of your TV, grab a meter and go to town. Maybe you'll find a part that's toasted.

You can get a meter in just

You can get a meter in just about any hardware store, and some electronic stores like Radio Shack. Multi-meters measure resistance, capacitance, and check for continuity within circuits.

Are they hard to learn... yes and no. If you're quick to catch on to electronic stuff then you should be able to test a part based on the specs listed on it. If you aren't familiar with any of the words I said above, then you may be in trouble.

You may just want to hang up the DIY idea on this one, and have it quoted by a service guy. I'm certainly not an amatuer when it comes to electronics, but even I wouldn't dream of working on my big screen. There's just way too much stuff in there to screw up.

1995 model, that makes it 10

1995 model, that makes it 10 years old. I'd be looking at the cost of repair to replace. Just a thought.
