Question about Hitachi Standard (CRT) Televisions

Open Question

Hitachi TV - takes several minutes for picture to appear

Hitachi TV - model C2586TN. When switched on from standby, sound comes on virtually immediately, but picture takes 3-4 minutes to appear.
However, channel numbers show on screen immediately.

Suspect this may be related to another problem recently encountered and fixed - missing green colour, caused by dry joint on CRT neck circuit.

The cause is one or more shorted transistors either on CRT board or on main or both. The colors are red,blue and green, you have a transistor for each and a bias trans. check each there are 6 in all.

Hi Phil.

Try adjusting A1 on loptx it is very critical & can cause the symptoms you are describing.

You could be right in saying the crt, Philips tubes are notorius for failing.

Im hoping your a tv tech if you are not DO Not do what I have written below tapping neck to hard can cause seriouse injury to your self.

Run set & tap the glass neck of crt if pic flickers or you see red blue or green flashing while tapping tube neck it will be the tube.

Let me know results there are a few things that can be done.

Sure this is tough one as the model is old. But when the red light flashes the set is powering up and the line output transformer is bringing up the voltage to the CRT stages. The time delay is the decay of the voltage to the circuits mainly due to aging of the components--maybe capacitors- or a possible section of the video-Y board having a series of DRY soldering.
Now you can attempt to see to these issue to evaluate.
First of all one you are confirmed that only when the set warms up the picture starts to come in, then we can simulate the fault by using a hair dryer to warm the suspected parts, mainly try on the section of the Y amp IC and the LOT section.
Checck for a faulty 22mfd or 10mfd with 25o volts capacitor on the LOT secondary to the CRT to be faulty, replace.
This can cause delay and poor picture quality.
Also if the contrast section of the Y amp is faulty you may get this faded situation of picture and colour.
Next use a good soldering iron to touch up the soldering of the
Y/C amp. This can be having poor joints and can be a possible suspect too.
The final part can be the picture tube itself but the fading would have very gradual and with a particular tint in domination.
I hope the tips can get you to work and find a solution.
The Tv is a good one and if the set works it can still give more hours of use.

Standby/stereo light blinking no picture or sound

My picture would go out after several minutes but I still had sound. I took the rear cover off and blew all the dust off with compresed air.I did this for a few times over several days nothing happened.I also took off the rear circuit board that attaches to the tube with a round pin socket and blew that with compressed air and put it back on. The TV has now worked for two days without the picture going out. It worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My TV is 9 years old.

Sony Trintron KV-32FX20U

This is a problem with the "AKB" circuit. There is a problem with the video signal. Are you comfortable changing parts inside the set? If so, please update this. I'll look up the specific parts for this model and post them.

Delay to see the picture

Your power supply is going south, I have an old sony with the same problem. The voltage level drops and does not have enough 'kick' to start. It will work better when it is warm. The module will need to be replaced.

No picture but has sound

hello .this does sound like bad solder joints .all printed circuit boards do this after a while due to heating and cooling .is not advisable to try to repair yourself .possible electric shock and spiking .will do a lot of damage .take to a shop to have repaired

Pulsating power LED. No picture. No sound

Either the main smoothing capacitor or the voltage regulator are faulty. You may find that the power LED will stay on after pulsating for several minutes, at which time you can switch the TV on.

Picture takes hours to appear

Spounds like the b+ feed filter capacitor off the flyback that supplys voltage to the three drive transistors on the crt board is bad.
