Question about Toshiba CN36G97 TV
I received a free TV yesterday. The only catch is that is doesn't work. I knew this when I got it. It is a Toshiba CN36G97. It was manufactured in April of 1998.
The previous owner owner tells me that they had NO problems with it until one day it just wouldn't come on any more. At that point they gave up on it and got a new TV. This one has been in there garage ever since.
The only things I know for sure is that the power light comes on at the same time a relay clicks over. There is a black box next to the relay that begins to get hot shortly after the relay clicks on. It is labeled as a resistor but looks like a relay. There are no obvious signs of overheating like smell or discoloration. The inside of the TV is VERY dusty so I think my first course of action will be to clean it out.
Any suggestions? I will be getting the service manual for this TV shortly as soon as I can find a reasonable place to get it from.
A little background on myself. I am a very experienced electronics tech I was in the Navy for 6 years troubleshooting and fixing aircraft electronics. The only thing stopping me here is that I don't have allot of TV experience. So most things I do will be guess work till I get a service manual. I am very aware of the voltages inside TV's and will take apropriate precautions.
I hope that is sufficient information for now. Basically I need to know what could be wrong and where to get a manual.
You can contact me at AngellXP@Gmail.com if you would like.
I would think the diodes are bad. If there is definite discoloration somewhere the board as been hit?. What's funny is a lot of times dust can cause a lot of board failures from static electricty. But I assume when you receive the manual and have a meter you can test the loactions to see if the meter reads the proper volts?. Good luck!!!
