b) of course, assuming the horizontal deflection oscillator works, same

with the horizontal drive and horizontal output transistor

it would generate output voltages on the secondary terminals

and 200V line will be active sending voltages to the

Video Drive circuits. Of course high voltage will be generated

ranging to at least 30 KV and there will be voltages on the G2 of the tube.

c) the easiest test point to look when it is oscillating, is the CRT heater

voltage, the heater lit when flyback is good ( mostly at night times when it

is dark ) and you can hear sounds, too.

here is a sample image

marked with letter H and H1

Green Arrow for the G2 voltage

d) having a B+ voltage reading of 75 V or lesser ( primary pins )

indicates a bad or partially shorted flyback, assuming your

horizontal output transistor and power supply are good & OK.

sample of H out

These only applies to CRT type TV's.

How do u check pcb board on musical equipment and on other equipment the only tool i have to check is a Fluke Multimeter but is there any other stuff that is need to inspect and Diag. these boards ple

One of the first things a technician does with a voltmeter it to check 'all the voltages' in a system are correct..

Even without a specific circuit diagram for the board, 'Applications Notes' for chips and seminconductors will give nominal expected voltages in a working circuit.

Remember you can burn out the meter by connecting it to any source of current when on the Ampere or Ohm settings.
Technicians usially start at a high (highest) Voltage range setting and work downwards..

Providing the maximum Voltage is not exceeded on any range, whether it is AC or DC will not damage the meter.

'Fluke' by the way are a 'top end' professional product - check the price ;)

The guitar was made fairly recently - after 2012 probably. Like the number indicates, it's US-made. Fender does not currently offer Tele's with copper colored aluminum pickguards, so that might be an aftermarket addition, assuming, of course, the picture is actually the guitar you have.

What is wrong with it?

FIlter capacitors in the positive supply are likely failing. These will be the larger metal cans- one may be bulging. Either way, one of them is shorting out after a certain voltage potential is achieved and causing your problem.

Replace the caps in both the positive and negative power supply sections and this should alleviate the issue. Match the working voltage rating, or even one step up in working voltage. yours are likely rated 25 volts, so a step to 35 volts would not pose an issue.

dear sir i am phasing the problem of secondary voltage of transformer in power supply board . actually i am not getting the 48 volt(dc) at o/p .

I assume you are refering to the 48 volt Phantom power? check rectifiers, filter caps and the regulator. Find if the voltage is getting to the regulator.
