Watched a movie the other day then after the movie was busy for a little bit and came back to this

RCA TC, circa 1998
model # p50830bl
service # is p50830blg1
chassis is ptk195bl

It's not like the standard convergence issues I've read about because there's no picture at all.

I tried unplugging and letting it sit over night, no change, also because i don't use the tv frequently I tried blowing out all the dust with a shop vac.

Found a site with some parts but dunno which part to get that would fix it.

If it's cheap to fix I would considering fixing it otherwise it would be a shame to have to toss a tv that is in nice condition.

with nothing plugged into the back of the tv I should be getting a no signal message, not this.

found if i change channels i'll get snow along with those 3 lines.
