He's killed it I'm afraid. The tube has be a total vacuum inside to work. If he's necked it (as it's known in the trade), then there is no way it will work - the noise you heard was the air rushing in through a crack or hole. The only option is a new tube, if the set is worth it.

You could always try a claim on your insurance but I'm not sure they would cover this sort of damage.

ijd's got a point there. If your friend knew enough about TVs to attempt to fix your problem, then he should have known what that noise meant. Most TV engineers have necked a tube at some time, either accidentally or deliberately to make it safe before disposal. I've probably done 20 or 30 in my time - only one of those was accidental.

I had a similar incident with a new sony I bought back in 1992 . I had a plant on top of my TV and each time I watered the bloody thing I didn't realise that I was watering the TV as well as the saucer was overflowing.
The TV used to unsuprisingly hiss and sizzle and the picture went very funny colours if remember rightly.
I was lucky in that when the service engineer opened up he found that water had fouled some of the circuit boards and had shorted some of the circuits, The noise I was hearing was the water sizzling. The boards had gone green with water marks but with brush to remove the corrosion it survived. In fact I am watching it as we speak whilst the front room is being decorated. :thumbsup:
