Question about Sanyo DS25390 TV
I am checking out a tv that has no power fuse is good. just need to know where to hook up test lead to check dc voltages????
Most TVs today use a "hot-chassis" design and a switch-mode power supply. You should use an isolation transformer when doing any service work on a TV. This helps protect you and your test equipment, and can prevent accidental damage to the TV by grounding parts to the wrong point.
Hot-chassis sets use two different grounds. The power supplies have one ground reference for the primary side (hot ground) and a different point for the secondary (cold ground). The point you pick will depend on what part of the TV you're measuring.
If you are troubleshooting a dead set and working on the primary side of the power supply, use the negative lead of the large electrolytic capacitor you'll find near the AC input connection. There's almost always a bridge rectifier and filter cap (300 to 400 uF range, 180 to 250 volt rating, so physically pretty large) in that area to make the raw DC. That's a guaranteed good hot ground. Sometimes the set will have a labeled hot ground point right on the circuit board for you.
For measurements on the secondary (output) side of the supply, almost any shield can is ground. The tuner cover is a good choice.
