I made a couple videos about reading and testing resistors. Keep in mind, if you're reading a resistor while it's still in the circuit, it might not read the value that it says on the resistor because of the circuit it's in. While in circuit it can only read the value of the resistor or less. If it reads more ohms while in circuit, then the resistor is probably open. My meter reads OUCH when it's open and 0 when it's shorted.

You set your tester to Ohms and if it is open the reading will not change, if it is shorted (not likely) the reading will go to zero, and finally if it is fine then the reading will correspond with the resistor value.

Remember not to hold both of the leads as you do these tests as you are a giant resistor and will change the readings.

To test w/o a coil tester,
Test coil with OHM meter to see if you get a reading,
no resistance= shorted.
no reading = an open.
Past that, one would need a coil tester.

Where is the heater blower resistor located?

The resistor pack wires are usually attached to the same wires as the blower motor. I strongly recommend replacing the blower motor at the same time if possible. It's the blower motor that is usually the reason for the resistor pack going out. So if you put just the resistor pack in, and shortly after, it goes out again then you'll know the blower motor needs to be replaced.
I hope this info helps!~subyguru~

If your TV don't have heater at AFC.Try to check first the B+ voltage on the ply-back transformer if you have 110vdc.Use a multimeter tester (range on DC) then place the black test prob (-) to the ground of the TV and the other one is on the B+ pin of the ply-back transformer that usually found on the 3rd pin.

  • If you don't have a B+ supply,try to look at the power supply section and check some open resistor and shorted transistor and also look for the fuse if busted.
  • If you have supply voltage on B+,you should know if the ply-back have oscillation.Normally it have a humming sound if the ply-back is oscillated and test the secondary of the ply-back using multimeter tester (range on AC).
  • If the fly-back have oscillation and the heater still no supply check the resistor that comes directly from the secondary of the fly-back it usually have 5 to 7 volts ac.and replace it with the same value and wattage.

I hope this solution will be helpful.Thank you and good luck.

Sony kv32v15 is dead with no sounds are lights. How difficult is it to replace the power supply / power management components?

since the problem is dead set all you need is open the back cover to trouble shoot, use digital tester. check blown fuse and then power on the unit check the output voltage at power supply panel board which supply the main CRT chassis board. if no output voltage check open fusible resistor its about .1 ohm, then check shorted rectifier diode and transistor sometimes cause by voltage fluctuation. just consider also the horizontal out put transistor it might be shorted cause by over current coming from power supply.

Please resistance nearly 4 diodes is a great resistance than others

I replied to your other question, too.
If you are testing diodes, there should be a very low reading when connecting to resistance tester in one direction and an open reading when the leads are reversed.
If you are reading a resistor, the bands on the resistor tell the manufactured resistance.
Post back with additional information.

I have a bad circuit (S type 15 amps fuse) that blows every fuse I put in it. My four way voltage tester says that it runs at 110 volts. Does this mean that I have a ground or short circuit problem? If so,...

please describe what type of device or circuitry you are having the fuse repeatedly blow so that I have a better idea of understanding your specific circumstance. A constant blown fuse normally indicates a short somewhere or an overloaded circuit somewhere. The type of tester you need is a ground fault receptacle tester you can purchase them at any hardware/electrical supply store for between $10-15 that tester when plugged in will show whether you wiring is correctly installed or not. please respond with further info and I can be of more assistance

To test a cap you need a capacitor tester. A multimeter can be used but it is really only good for determining opens and short in caps not actual values.

You need to switch your meter to ohms and measure the resistance across them. You should read something near 4.75 ohms.

4.75 ohms would cause a constant tone on diode check or continuity.

Did you replace all 8 output transistors?

If not, are you sure that the other 4 transistors haven't failed?
