Re: Television fails to start

Hello vjob,

This problem means that the TV has lost vertical drive. This could be a problem with the vertical signal coupling capacitor, the vertical output stage, or the vertical driver stage of your TV.

If you are not experienced at electronics, I would suggest taking the TV to a qualified TV repair shop. It should not cost much to repair this problem if the deflection yoke is not involved with this problem.

Thank you,

Our Sony TV started to display something that looked like interference, with sharp horizontal white streaks across the screen, accompanied by loud popping noises. It has nothing to do with the cable,...

According to the symptom the FBT Which is called "Fly Back" is popped, and it needs replacement. Details like Part No. and Description is given below:

145334611 FBT ASSY (NX-6000//J1J4)

Replace the FBT and your tv work fine again.

Repair screen

Good day.
its not a problem with the screen but with the internal parts. It could be a cause of a malfunctioning parts along the horizontal section. Capacitors are ussualy the culprit. Have it checked by a technician.

TV has audio sound and no picture

Your set migbe missing the high voltage that lights up the picture tube,you need to check for loose conections starting at the horizontal drive transistor and transformer ,then check the horizontal output transistor for short,it needs to be checked with a meter if the output is shorted it probably open a safey fuse or resistor to prevent more damage.If you are familiar with tv service this will give a place to star but if you are not too familiar be safe and seek the help of a servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.

You have a vert sweep problem and unless you know how to trouble shoot this cuircit bring it to a pro. I found out mostly in these sets that the vert output IC is bad.. Also sometimes the b+ filter cap off the fly is leaky and made the IC to fail. Another thing is Im surprised to hear you got a pic with the vert failure and a bright line in the pic!! This could be a big problem when the sets fixed so dont run it too long like this. It could burn a line all the way across the screen and you will see a dark faint line in your pic because of this. BE CAREFULL!!
