Re: how many watts does the tv take, anybody know?

Here's the link for the user manual if you need it; Check page 39. 120vac - power on = approx 69W I wouldnt get an inverter too close to that figure, but a 200w inverter should do - just check the inverter specifications to verify if the rating is actual power output - many inverter manufacturers are a little creative with their model names etc, but the real info has to be somewhere on the box. If in doubt then the best way is to evaluate your battery system capacity and usual recharging input, and match the current drawn by an inverter to half that figure, see what power inverter size you can manage. if you buy bigger, you get more watts per dollar usually, and you may want any surplus capacity later for another item. Also running inverters up towards their maximum often will shorten their life dramatically. Hope this helps :)

DC powered fine. AC Power intermittent

in order to find the connection, you will have to open up the tv carefully and follow the power supply in and probably a thin piece of metal will be broken and need to be resoldered back on. The broken piece will most likely be on or around the board.

Be careful when working on this because you could receive an electrical shock especially if you don't know what you are doing.

I would suggest letting the tv discharge overnight by unplugging it.

Please let me know if you need any further help or have any questions.

Thank you and good luck

Is this set digital ready?

I'm sorry, but this tv is not digital. You might be able to use an inverter that converts 12volts DC to 120volts AC to power a digital converter box.

Excessive brightness with retrace lines

Here are the values:
RY04 >>>> 68 ohms >>>> 1 Watt
RY04A >>> 47 ohms >>>> 0.5 watt
RY02A >>> 330 Ohms >>> 0.25 Watt.

All resistors should be 5% tolerance.

Apex GT2715 TV, burned resistor

Wire wound 190 ohm 10 watt should do the trick if that's all that's wrong with the set...accordianman

12C Power Supply

Power inverters are plentiful on eBay in the range of $25-$100 US and any within that range would satisfactorily supply 110-120 VAC for your set. These items are also available at auto & RV parts outlets.

Check the rated power consumption on the set itself or in the user guide but I doubt that it will need more than 150 watts at 120 VAC.  If the consumption is not given in watts but instead amperes, multiply that number by 120 (for the liine voltage) and the result will be in watts. Any higher wattage that you buy will give you the possibility of using it for things other than your TV.

All later consumer items such as your set are able to deal with the quasi-sine wave output of this kind of primitive inverter.
Power inverters    
Not all items can use this kind of AC; any power tool or kitchen appliance with brushes for the motor will accept this kind of voltage, as well as resistance type of appliances like hair dryers, curlers, etc. If you are in doubt about something you might like to attach to an inverter, listen closely to the device and if it doesn't sound like it did at home, don't use it.  Also if it starts to emit an odor or heats excessively, stop using it.

Dc power cord

It should show it on the old cord, or on the DC jack on the TV set. A little diagram should be right by it.
