Re: tv does nothing

Ahhh the noise maker comes to life again .. Ok my friend this is a common problem with this set If your lucky?? If you know anything about trouble shooting tvs then this is what ya got.. Try first to measure the Horizontal output transistor. It will meaqsure a few ohms between the base and emmitter. But the base and collector should measure about 450 to 550 olms on the diode settings onm the metter.if it measures shorted you need to replace the flyback tranformer along with the Horz output transistor. Now if the HOT( thats horiz output transistor)is not shorted then theres a little coil in the horizontal drive thats causing problems as you need to take out the coil from the PCB and scrape off the ends and reinstalkl it. also the horizontal driver tranformer as well as the resistor that feeds the transformer could be bad and thast is a 3200 ohm at three watts. if ya dont have a clue what I just said the sets gonna cost ya ariynd 200 to 300 to fix .. Is it worth it to ya>?????lol Good luck

The power surge has caused a failure of an internal component. If it is making this noise it is possible the line output transistor has failed. I would advise calling a service repair centre & have someone there take alook at it. All being well this may be the only problem. Power surges can sometimes cause other faults.

Possible short and safety is keeping the set from burning up. A service man should be able to find the short hopefully in a small amount of time.
