Question about Sanyo AVM-3659S 36" TV

1 Answer

Sanyo 36 inch MODEL AVM3659G

I happened to be watching television last night. I did have the television on for a long length of time. Out of nowhere the screen just went poof and blank. When I click the on button it clicked but the television did not come on. I clicked it again and there was no clicking noise, I also tried it from the television and there was no clicking noise. Do you think I burn somekind of fuse since the television was on for a very long length of time. It is about 10 years old and I have never had a problem before. Will it be worth fixing, or should I just purchase another one. (its not like I have money to do either right now)

Probably you had a horizontal output transistor short which in turn may have blown a fuse. When the horizontal output transistor shorts, probably the high voltage transformer (flyback) has also gone bad. Since the set is so old, you could replace it about as cheap as you could have it repaired. Stargazer

Hi My wife was watching our 2002 Panasonic CT36SX12CF model t.v last night, all of a sudden there was a pop noise and the screen went black. The tv would not turn on again. Any ideas what the problem...

hey Al more than likelly it was the fuse that popped if you take the back panel off the fuse is next to the power cord and should take a 6.3 amp 125-250 volt fuse

Sanyo 31'' Standard Def CRT TV

This is a vertical problem that can be as simple as poor connections at the vertical IC or a defective IC. If you can solder, you should be able to fix this yourself. Realize that there are potentially dangerous high voltages present inside hte set even when unplugged. If you wish to attempt this repair, please update this and confirm your model number as DS31590 and I'll supply additional details and instructions.

Mike-It looks like the power supply is going on your tv-it can be replaced. This happens, usually, when little kids are playing wth the remote or power button on the tv. Turn it off and on a whole bunch of times in a row, kids love to do that, and it burns out the power supply part- to make a CRT tv like your RCA36 incher- which is a beautiful machine- I have the RCA/PROSCAN 36 incher-LAST longer...You should always wait 5 min between turning it off and on. Don't ever sell it. This one is worth fixing. It has better color and sound Than the new plasmas and lcds-The Pros know this. Be carefull, they might try and talk you out of it-so they can fix it and have it for themselves. So what if it's not High Deff. It's a great set.

If the TV is less than one year old, I would suggest to call the place where you bought it from and ask them for an authorized repair centre.
The TV should be still covered under manufacturers warranty.

Check for cold or crystalized solder joints on the board that is connected to the CRT.
I would also check the solder joints around the high power resistors near or around the horizontal section.
Good Luck.
