pee wee help!!!! philips magnavox 34pt5793-79r

Was watching TV then there is perfect audio but the picture reduces towards the centre of screen finishing in perfect audio with only a white dot in the centre of the screen. After turning the TV off, and waiting then turning back on...the screen does not turn on anymore and the power/standbye LED just flashes twice in a 1 second cycle when mains connected...

Please help me with this!!! I have the back cover off, and cannot easily identify any CRT board failures?

Pee Wee hasn't been on this forum in about 2 years.

BTW, who sent you here?

Looking for anyone that can help, I can see pee wee hasn't been on. And I didn't realise this was a private forum...

I'm not sure what a private forum is. Anyone can join and ask questions and supply answers.

We just get a lot of people with broken Philips and Magnavox TVs on here looking for help. Way, way, more than any other brands. I was curious if someone from another forum sent you this way.

The magic of google sent me here (among hundreds of other sites)looking to find answers with my TV. It lasted 5 years before it failed...probably not bad, however a big expensice
TV like it I expected to last longer.

I would suggest calling a repair shop.
