Question about Toshiba 19A26 19" TV

1 Answer

Info to fix

I put this puppy away in the box after a year of use and it sat in heated storage for 12 years.
Took it out of the box and the picture only extended from the top to mid tube with the menus and channel displays scrunched up. After running for about 1/2 hour, the picture decends all the way to the bottom  but the menu is half out of sight.
I assume some electrolytic capacitor in the virtical control has dried out but I have no schematics and no clue where anything is. I hate to to discard the equipment if can be repaired.
Can anyone out there help?

Fuel injectors

You can go on the internet & see the companies that offer
injector cleaning

There are about 5 that have been around 20 to 30 years,
so go with them

What no one knows, is that only removing the injectors as you have & mailing them away for ultra sonic cleaning,is the ONLY Proper way to have them tested,cleaned & flow matched

You follow the shipping instructions on the site

Have to air them out & sandwich bag each injector & then wrap them all & put in a box to mail away

I would recommend anyone reading this post, to do so & have the
injectors cleaned every 10 to 12 years, or your fuel trim will have some unexplained numbers & your converters will wear out quicker

Heating problem: I have a 1996 buick roadmaster wagon 88,000 miles. sat in garage for years so we've put a new starter in it, new thermostat, radiator is great, flushed it both ways, maybe the vent? anyone...

Sounds like you need a plumber. Check the water flow through the heat exchanger, you may find it only needs flushing through or the blades on the water pump are corroded away.

I pulled the stem out completely trying to reset time.

if you broke the stem and its left a peice inside the movement then i would ask your repairer for a module exchange this is cheaper than servicing and a new crown 55.00 or send it back to seiko they are very good with there wont have the tools you need to replace it yourself..

1st things first, as I always say....

1. Check your soldering around the vertical section. Most sets have defects in thier soldering of the components under the board, with time. Especially true of RCA and Zenith sets, but all makes are not exempt! Again, check this first and fix as necessary.

2. Look for one or more electrolytic capacitors in the vertical section, maybe around 100uf 35v ,1uf 50v or a 220uf 35v or similar values. Change these, even if they look physically ok., observing the polarity of each. Most of the repairs I do involve these components. They fail with time and change value. Higher value caps , like 1000uf, 2200uf, etc., are usually not the reason for vertical troubles, just to note.

Further steps, if needed:

3. You might even have a shorted or open diode next to the vertical chip. It is usually black with a gray stripe on it. Be sure to replace it with the same polarity as the old one- the "stripe: denotes the cathode side of the diode. Do not get it backwards, (important!) - follow the "arrow" symbol on the board... you can check the diode with most multimeters. It should read in only one direction as a rule of thumb. If it's shorted, you'll get a reading in both directions, and if open, no reading of course. You can use most generic, 1 amp diodes (not zeners) to replace it, I found.

4. Your vertical chip itself may be bad, but you'll usually get a line straight across if it is. If after doing the above with no result, you may want to change it.

Good luck...
