First off there is no capacitor that holds the High voltage on the tube. Its the tube itself that stores the charge and if you dont discharge a tube properly it will bite you!!You can disconnect the 2nd anode of the tube(thats what the cup is called)that puppy can hold a charge for months as I've picked up used tubes that other service men may have striped out of a junk sets and still got zapped weeks later and it can burn a hole right in you if it bites you the right way. That metal strap is the ground for the crt(the picture tube) The proper way to saftly discharge a crt would be to take a screwdriver perferably a flat tip and connect a cliplead to the screw driver and clip the other end to the ground strap. Carefully slide the screwdriver up UNDER the cup on the crt till you reach the middle of the tube as you will feel it as it wont go any farther. In the meantime you might hear a pop sound and that would be the dischargeing of the tube.. Keep that screwdriver in place a min. of 30 to 40 secs. then remove . Then pinch the cup the oppisite direction on both sides that the wire is running as the cup is held in place by a small hooks on both sides Be carefull not to rip off the cup or bend the small hole suround that the cup is attached. And never ever poke a hole in the cup as I've seen peeps do and when you turn back on a set you will have fireworks as the high voltage will arch out all over the place and if your hand or face is close to it it will get you too!! Now take the clip lead and attach to the grounding strap and clip the other end to where you just took off the cup and your all set.Good Luck with your repair

Get it to a service because you have a short-circuit. It will burn every new fuse.

The blue and green guns have either failed or reduced their output significantly. This can be repaired but if you brought it to my store I would suggest dumping it and replacing with a LCD or Plasma set. I think you'll be much happier in the long run. If this TV has sentimental value or you can't afford to buy a new set, most reputable repair people would do the job for minimal cost. I know I would.

Your TV set seems to have either a bad connector contact or some solder contacts gone loose. Check the connectors for any oxydized contacts and clean these. Also check for any bad (loosened) solder points (so-called "cold connections") and resolder them.

Hope this helps somewhat, if not, there might be burnt out components, but they usually don't come to life if you hit the TV, which suggests bad contacts.

The tube is the most dangerous part. It contains a vacuum and also a very large charge. The easiest way to make it safe is to unplug the end by removing the pc board attached to the back. Once removed, you will notice a large round plastic "pin" that is keyed. With a pair of pliers, squeeze the end of that part. This will break the end of the tube and allow air to enter. Do this carefully and only break the very end of this glass part (indide the plastic). You will hear the air enter the tube. This will effectively remove the charge at the same time.

Get a 10K resistor, use an alligator clip to connect one side of the resistor to the ground of the TV (note, if you are working in the primary circuit of a switching power supply, do not use chassis ground, instead connect the alligator clip to the negitive side of the capacitor).
Use a good pair of insolated pliers to hold the body of the resistor and touch the free end of the resistor to the positive side of the capacitor.
Because of the 10K resistor it may take a minute to fully discharge. Heep holding it for at least a minute.
If you have a Voltage meter you can use it to verify the discharged state of the capacitor. (note you can get a multimeter for as little as $10 if you look around).

NO! it would have to be by the same manufacture also the specifications and ratings would have to be the same , as some differ from different models
sometimes different sizes can but it will just look funny and will just end up hurting the board
