Question about Sony HMD A220 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Toshiba CF3566A Tac 9190

I have an ongoing problem with this TV set that I can not seem to solve on my own. Initially about a month ago, I turned on the set and after an hour or so it shut down. I unpluged & repluged and it powered back on & stayed on. The next day I turn it on & it shut down. Afterwards, I could hear a faint "ticking" sound. After viewing numerous posts in various TV forums, I ran across a post in this forum by someone named "pasty" who advised the following: "common for the horizontal output to short in these models is a 2sc3892a which shorts because of a 10uf 160V filter capicator on the primary of the H drive transformer deteriorates & distorts the Waveforms causing H out transistor to overheat & short". I also found another solution in another TV forum that advises that a 22uf@50V cap located at C871 on the power supply board is also known to cause problems. I have also found a solution that said to also replace the IC regulator along with the HOT. To summarize, I have replaced the HOT, the IC regulator, and the following electrolytic caps: a 22uf@50V on circuit # C871 on power supply board, and a 10uf@160V on circuit # C416 on the same board where the H.O.T. is located. Now then, after installing the above new parts, the TV powered up with a wonderful clear & crisp picture, but after 15 minutes it shut down. After it shut down there was NO "ticking" sound. I unplugged & replugged & it again powered on but again shut down after 15 minutes. The HOT tests good with my DMM, and I am at wits end trying to figure what is causing the TV to shut down. I am looking for a straight foward solution to help solve my problem. I have limited experience, therfore a step by step solution would be most appreciated!! I thank you.

Re: Toshiba CF3566A Tac 9190

The cuestion is if every time it shut down you have the hot shorted,or not. have measure the flyback/yoke/Hot working current? it must be under 0.6Amp ,if is greater something is wrong and cause overheating.Normally I touch with my fingers to "measure" the temperature. and what about the Micro?.there´s one pin that control power on/off ,is it good-solid data or is crazy . micro gets hot, have a correct 5Volt on its VDD pin. lot of cuestion that I hope helps you!!!

So. My Samsung 906bw monitor was working about a month ago fine. Then all of a sudden, the monitor refuses to turn on. The power light turns on and off and continues to do that but nothing happens....

This is an old monitor, you should try it with another PC running XP to see if it does the same.
More likely for the monitor this old to have bad DC filter caps by now as you can see in my SAMSUNG and other monitor albums.

Learn about bad caps:

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps for you.
Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

Toshiba 40XV645U - No picture on HDMI 1 when TV is turned on

I assume that you have set the input source selction as in Page 32 and HDMI 1 is solid and and not grayed out. If so check the Preferences menu and see if there is an option for power on set up.
Also look at page 51 about HDMI feature settings. I assume you turn the cable box on first before turning the TV on.

follow the diagram, the base of the hor out should go to the secondary of the hor drive transformer, and going to the primary circuitry you should find a transistor, a small transistor, look for its collector and you should find a filter capacitor, may not be the same value but it is the filter capacitor.
