Question about Televison & Video
There also seem to be a capacitor(it is the 33 uf/160 volt cap) in the high voltage line which after replacement may lighten up your set...
Remove the back panel of your TV, on the D board you'll find an electrolytic capacitor. If you don't easily see the D stamp on the board you'll know you're on the right board when you're in the 500 series position numbers. On the cap will be the markings 33uf/160v and it's polorized so there is a positive and negative. The new cap has to be placed in the circuit according to its polorized direction and the cap indicates which side is negative... You can easily other see caps on the board and what denotes their negative side with relation to the direction on the board. Usually, the negative side marking on the board will have a small box or block near the hole opening denoting negative
A single cap like that can be purchased from your local electronic supply store. Just tell them you want a radial 33 micro ferret 160 volt electrolytic capacitor. Should be about 3-4 dollars... If you try and buy these from a wholesale distributor you'll get a better price but usually you have buy minimums to contend with..Chenaging this capacitor would solve your issue...
