Solving LOT arking problems in Philips 29" CRT TV

I had a problem with my philips 29" CRT TV model 29PT2452/94S. The LOT was leaking at the lower portion of the cable that goes to the anode of the picture tube. Since a good replacement of the LOT was not available, I did the following: I wound a good insulation tape on the area where I noticed the puncture. I removed the cap and de-soldered the connector that goes into the picture tube top. Then inserted a thick insulation sleeve removed from a piece of underground telephone cable which was a tight fit. Then I cut a long piece of petrol tube that we normally use for two wheelers, and inserted it all the way upto the area of puncture. Then refit the anode connector back as it was. The problem got solved. But the TV shut down immediately after switch on. When I entered into service mode, it showed error 11. I replaced the RGB amplifier IC TDA6107 on the CRT PCB, adjusted the screen and focus control. Replaced all the electrolytic capacitors (48 Nos.) as the TV was around 8 years old. Now the TV is working like a brand new one! (Caution: Please remove anode cap only after discharging the residual charge that remains [Tube is a very large capacitor!]. See any guidance available in net or consult a technician before you ever touch anywhere near the LOT thick cable that goes to the top of the Picture Tube, even when the TV power plug is removed! Beware: You should have basic knowledge of TV servicing before you ever attempt to do such service]

Would need the model number of the TV to get exact directions, but that feature is called the aspect ratio. On Philips remotes, the button to change that is labeled as "Format."

My kids reported the TV screen is black, but it's on. I checked and you can hear the electric hum which indicates it's "On", and there is a distinctive ozone smell too. Broken beyond repair?

Final anode cap arcing is the problem to your TV. Just unplug final anode cap from the top of the picture tube bell.[discharge the final anode properly before remote it]. Sometimes LOT {line Output Transformer} might be repalced. Picture of the LOT is attached here. You can see the final anode cap, an attached part to LOT. It is silicone rubber cap, look like a ****** at the end of EHT wire.

You meas that EHT leaking. The EHT cap must be replced and final anode portion should be cleaned well.

A.O. smith model fpsh50 water heater has smelly water i know its the anode rod and it's on top of the tank but where and how to take it out

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Use this link to locate your EXACT model.
There are 6 different types of FPSH50
270, 271, 270E
236, 237
250, 251
251, 252
260, 261, 261E

Download the manual for your unit. The anode rod just unscrews CCW from the fitting on the body of the hot water heater.

I checked the 250, 251 model

Using 3 and 9 o'clock for the plumbing connections as a reference, the anode would be at the 6 o'clock position under the metal cap in the top.
The part number for your anode is in italic bold below.FPSH50 -250. -251

1 ......... Anode - Aluminum (.750" dia.) Standard Models.......... 43817-25 ................... 43817-25 ................. 43817-38

1 ......... Anode - Aluminum (.840" dia.) Optional ...................... 180618-29 ................. 180618-29 ............... 180618-35
1 ......... Anode - Magnesium (.840" dia.) Optional .................... 183463-29 ................. 183463-29 ............... 183463-38

Thanks for choosing Fixya,

lot problem

If the LOT has failed there is no other option but to replace the LOT with the same type . Remove the +B connection to the horizontal driver transistor , now measure the +B to be within the limit set in as a higher level of the +B can result in a failure.
Once confirmed that the LOT is short or open, you can continue to replace, take care to remove connection from the anode and CRT base.
