Your problem is a bad main B+ capacitor. The right way to find this would be with a good ESR type capacitor meter. If you do not have an ESR cap. checker or do not know how to use a cap. checker. a local repair shop should be able to assist you in this repair at a decent price. Let us know what you did to get this set fixed?

Hi Sandy, the problem with your TV is called "convergence". It can be a problem with the convergence board or more likely in this model in the power supply or deflection circuits. Unfortunately, troubleshooting by a technician is required.

Hour glass sign on the screen of my MP3. won't go away and MP3 won't start working. The hour glass sign just stays on the screen.


I have a Craig CMP616F MP3 player. In "Set Up", After I set the "online mode" to "Media Device" from "USB Disk", it was working ok until I loaded Apple iTunes. When Apple iTunes attempted to load, it crashed! Flashing start up screen, blue with Hour Glass, then blank out, attempt to restart and the same thing, blue screen with hour glass. There is no known reset proceedure at this time, I started it, let it run and recycle endlessly until the batteries expired. Not recommended, because of battery life, but this did reset this model. Success! A drastic step for the irrecoverable MP3. When I used a standard charger 110v Ac to USB (wall current) it started up, no lost files! Lucky, maybe, I hope this will work for you if you haven't thought of it.

Picture is curved like an hour glass


that a pincushion problem likely caused by a failed capacitor

Hourglass Shape


If there is a hour glass shape to the image but convergence is normal, there are 2 possibilities. You either have a pincushion correction problem or if the hour glass seems to be moving, it will be an open filter capacitor in the power supply.

Unless you are electronically inclined troubleshooting this issue will require a factory trained service technician. You can expect to spend $300-$400 to fix this.

Hour Glass picture on a RCA TV F32632SB


I looked up this model and found the following electolytic capacitors to be the most likely culprits within the pincushion circuit. Check these first. The starred one is the one I have replaced in the past to resolve this.

C4851 10ufd 50V
C4853 10ufd 63V
C4854 2.2ufd 100V
C4855 2.2ufd 50V
* C4862 100ufd 25V

Good luck,
Dan

The screen flickers into hour-glass figure.


It's the tube going out. You need to replace it. If you want to stay with CRT monitors, you should be able to pickup a used one for around $10.00 on Craigslist.

The picture is convexed,or hour glass.


Sounds like problem in B+ voltage line to horizontal output transistor. Possible bad filter capacitor or leaky diode in power supply.
