Magnavox Color TV Model #27MT3305/17
The problem I was having was that the vertical deflection was
collapsing on itself from the top. I'm a tech and I am visiting web
sites who experience similar problems with the Magnavox 20 MT4405 in
hopes of saving them time and money."Starsong" has the right answer.
Replace electrolytic capacitor #2465. It is a
10 microfarad electrolytic capacitor rated at 160 volts. Although the
existing capacitor appeared good,in circuit and out, the
charge-discharge time was flat as compared with a new capacitor. Plus,
when the capacitor is in circuit with full voltage applied, the
capacitor leaks too much. The cost of the capacitor should be under $2.
It should take under a half an hour to replace. Be certain to let your
set rest, unplugged, for at least a half hour before attempting to
replace this capacitor. There are high voltage present around the crt
even after the set is turned off. The high voltages can cause serious
bodily harm. I would suggest a tech discharge the anode on the crt with
a high voltage probe passing through a volt meter and running to
ground. You will need a soldering iron, solder ******, solder, and I
like to use a little flux for good adhesion of component to board.
