    Hi:



    O.k. I checked all the capacitors I could find. I checked the rather large ones on the board where the 120 volt power comes into the t.v (power supply board?) and also the ones on the board that houses the flyback that I read on here are suspect to being trouble but they all seem to be looking good. I also checked on tops and bottoms of the boards for visual burning or loose connections but that all looks to be good too.

    Any thoughts?.

    Hey , I really appreciate you taking the time to help me with this. Thank you very much

    Got it. I will check again but from what you are saying it looks like 99% of all problems with this particuliar set are all associated with the board that the flyback is mounted to. Is this called the deflection board? If so, I might as well just go ahead and buy the replacement board and I've got a pretty good chance of fixing this thing.

    Also, which board is the signal board?

    Thanks again for the response.

    Hey, do you happen to know what the output voltage is supposed to be of the powerboard (the one where the power from the outlet comes into the tv.?) I checked the output and I only get 24vac?

    This seems a little low?



    Thanks

    O.K. Just tried the capacitors. This did'nt do the trick. Same problem. The green light comes on and stays on for 10 seconds then it goes out.

    Any other ideas? What would you try next?



    Thanks

That chassis has been plagued by bad capacitors on the deflection board .especially CP150 and CP114. I would suggest visibly inspecting the tops of the capacitors in the same area as those two and see if the tops look domed if so replace those capacitors. If the caps dont appear domed let me know and I will try to assist you with it.

    that xhassis has also been famous for solder connections around the flyback also. Its almost 100% a problem with the deflection board, Another item is the hot which is on the heat sink just above the flyback ( 2SC5588) I have seen the pins on that actually broken before. Another item has been the ribbon cblaes not seating fully between the deflection and signal board as well as the ribbon socket solder connections.

    yes that board is the deflection board with the flyback, you will have a hard time finding one at a reasonable price as they have been discontinued by RCA. The signal board is the board that is right next to that board the ribbon cables plug into the signal board. The following link has the signal board on promotional sale and I think if you send them a email they could most likely make you a deal on the deflection board as well. Heres the link, leave them a email.

Almost certainly the green picture tube is shorted. This is a very expensive repair; probably not worth doing.

Hey Lady Winn:

I tried the capacitors but nothing. It still does the same thing. The green light comes on and stays on for 10 seconds then goes out.
What would you try next?
