long time to power on

My Ecco television is one of the old models and not the lcd screen. It takes long about 4 to 5 minutes to power on, and plays well for a few minutes then starts flickering and eventually shows mixed shaking horizontal lines until it powers off again on its own. A friend who is an electrician told me its possible it has to do with a bad capacitor but my problem is I don't know anything about these things. I was wondering if anyone could assist me in identifying the problem and try to fix this on my own because this TV is really cheap and not worth taking to an electrician.

Hi @maphanga

well, it could be a bad main filter capacitor, inspect for bad capacitors also,

and sometimes, crt tv and electronics can also suffer the issue of dry joint soldering, you need to inspect the board and re soldering it.

You need to take extra caution when removing the TV cover as CRT inside can hold some high voltages inside.

learn how to discharge it, if you are unsure, perhaps ask a friend that is much more experience in it.
