Question about SansuiM1315 TV

1 Answer

TV Will not fire up.

The set, a Sansui Colour TV, Model No SV2918 -74cm, was working fine until ,the top right hand corner of the screen pulled in and caused a distorted picture about 10cm inwardly.About half an hour later the set suddenly blacked out. I replaced the the horizontal output transistor and switched the set on. No raster/no sound ,static felt on screen and nothing else.When the set is switched bsck on again, pilot light comes on for a fraction of a second and dies out.No raster/ no sound, but a faint hum is heard through the loud speakers, no static on the screen. I replaced IC 801, MC44608 being the power supply still nothing. Please can you help me? Thank you.

I still have a sansui tv(model sv2918) 74cm. My problem is that my screen does not appear clearly. Its lost its original colour it seem greenish on left and right sites. What might be the cause of that?

Contact any service technician. Its video output section circuit, and de-gassing circuit should be checked. This is not a user repairable service work. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Green and blue color sansui tv

No red color is the problem to your set. The video output section circuit, the board plugged on to the neck of the picture tube need to be troubleshooted for any defective component/s or loose solder terminals. Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Click this link. View it in 'Flip card' option, which can be selected from the drop down box menu by the [Sidebar] tag, at the top left corner of the display window. It will make search easy. There are more than 900 posts to different brand TVs now.
Pull up older posts there, and come towards the post describes about 'one color predominant screen'. You can get more details.

/my screen is blue with video 1/auto showing on the top right hand corner, how do i sort the pro out.

i need more info?
The video1 is the input channel ,the auto is the sound and video system the tv uses to identify the signal(you have a multi system tv) {multi system (pal,ntsc,secam etc) if it is in auto mode you dont need to worry about it , the tv wil identify the system automaticaly and set the apropriate setings by itself.
You could press av on tv or on remote to switch between av1 /av2 /tv program etc, make sure the ant / dvd / cable etc is conected and on while selecting / pressing av button.
hope it works.

All Ihaveis blue screen

You need to change the source (original remote) or the input (univeral remote). It needs to be in TV mode - not video.

Audiosonic TV - Word "Factory" appears on top left corner

Try pressing the RETURN button (above the DISP button - number 6 on the button list in the manual). The button has two arrows chasing each other. It worked for me on our Audiosonic KMC TH68 TV.
