    my ,question is,shouldn't cap c1504,give me a reading both ways.since i'm getting a reading one way,doesn't this mean this cap is no good.i will replace both stk's.i'm a novice,i'm just trying to understand how things work.i'm also able to read schematics.

    no it's not's brown and rectangular in shape,measures 1/2in across,by 5/16in down with two prongs.i look-up on ecoustic site and this is where i got the name yoke cap from.all that's written on cap is 104k.

Lift the convergence yoke plugs off of the signal pcb one at a time and turn the set on. if unit powers up and stays on then replace the convergence ic's. expect the picture to be distorted while troubleshooting and don't let it stay on long if it fires up. stk-392-110 are the ic's you would need along with some heat sink compound. also check for a burned m.o.v. on the deflection pcb just in case.

    The 180 in the part number indicates the wattage of the IC so yes, it MAY work but I always like to use the original parts. I have also found that on those resistors they have been very discolored but they never opened so I never replace them and never had an issue after replacing the stk's. I recoomen repalcing the stk's first then fire the set up and see what you have. You will most likely find that you only need a little touching up on the convergence. Don't forget the heat sink compound for the stks

Hi Mary, sounds like something jammed in the trigger mechanism or the microswitch button is stuck in the housing. Unplug the iron, let it cool. Gently pry up the blue cushion from the handle from the front towards the rear cord, you will see the trigger, the actuator tab and the microswitch button (nib) that should be sticking out, if it is flush with the housing it is jammed down. That switch is replaceable, but I don't know how savy you or your appliance servicer are at replacing it. Here is where I get my parts:

Iron is not heating up hot enough stained glass soldering iron:

hi friend,
check this out
Consider the wattage of the soldering iron. A good soldering iron will have wattage of 80 to 150. A wattage of lower than 80 is not ideal for stained glass. You need a soldering iron that will melt the solder fast enough for your project. Consider the type of temperature control you want. Some irons will have a temperature control built in the tip. When the temperature drops, it will turn on and when the temperature is reached, it will turn off. Other soldering irons have a built-in rheostat. You control the temperature by turning the dial up or down. A separate rheostat can be purchased to plug your soldiering iron into. Rheostats are highly recommended. This lets you match your temperature to your soldering style and allow you to do decorative effects.
  • Step 2 Consider the heating element. There are two types of elements, ceramic or wire-wrapped. Ceramic core irons maintain heat more efficiently than wound wire heaters. In a ceramic core, the heater core extends into the tip for faster heat transfer. This will keep the tip hot for a longer period so you can work quickly and faster. Ceramic irons maintain their temperature longer and heat up within 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Step 3 Consider the weight of the soldering iron. You want a soldering iron that is lightweight and balanced. You will have less fatigue when using a lightweight soldering iron at long stretches of time. Check to see if it fits your hand comfortably. Check to see if it has a good rubber cushion for your hand.
  • Step 4 Check for the ease of changing tips on your soldering iron. When soldering stained glass, you want to match your tip to the technique you want to use. There are a variety of tips on the market for soldering irons, and you want to be able to change them easily.
  • Step 5 Check the soldering iron to see if it has a heavy-duty cord and a three-prong plug. You want a grounded three-prong plug to prevent the possibility of shock.

    Panny TV PT-53WXD63 having RF input gone bad

    You can most likely fix this yourself.

    You have had the back off before, so you know how to get to the circuit boards. You will have to remove the video output panel as well for this repair.

    Look for a box that has the RF connectors attached to it and remove it.

    Open the box and inspect the solder connections on all the devices, including the grounds around the sides of the box. The grounds are a big issue on all tuner and switching connections.

    Solder all of the connections in the tuner switch and you should be good to go. I would recommend a 45 watt iron, if it is too hot it can lift the traces off of the circuit board.

    If this does not work I would recommend a technician to diagnose the tuners in your set, as this is the next circuit to receive the signal.

    I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

    Bow in tv

    Hello trumpold,

    The bad new is the resistor is bad. If it is reading 2 ohms its bad because the rated value is .29 ohms and 5% tolerance. I would venture to say that the convergence amplifiers have gone bad. due to excessive current. Since the deflection and convergence boards work together they might both be defective. I would first suggest that you take the TV to a qualified TV repair shop, to perform the repair, but if you what to do this yourself you will need the following items:

    1) Schematic of the TV in question ( or

    2) Signal Generator or use the on-board Signal Generator (look in schematic for usage.

    3) Multimeter (for resistance, and voltage readings)

    4) soldering iron, solder, and de-soldering tools (solder wick, and de-soldering pump)

    With these items you should be able to determine the components you need to change, and remember follow the instructions in the schematic exactly as to board removal.

    Before reinstalling the convergence board after changing out the convergence amps and ALL (I maen ALL) biasing resistors, check for solder bridges and shorts, removing them with the solderwick.

    I hope this helps

    Thank you,

    Won't steam

    The steam irons I have see have a separate button to allow water from the reservoir to enter the steam chamber. This button latches down for steam and you unlatch it for dry. Also, there is a temperature range on the temp dial for steam.

    The reservoir must have water in it for the iron to make steam. If calcium from the water has built up on the reservoir valve, it may prevent the water from entering the steam chamber. Straight white vinegar instead of water may help.
