Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a 1984 Curtis Mathes TV (its the large console 25" i think and it has the stereo, 8 track, cassette, and record player in the top of the cabinet) The screen bounces its a nice picture, but even after running a few hours it still bounces. The screen seems to "bobble" about 1/8 ~ 1/4"

    I work at a circuit board company and very comfortable with soldering. How can the vertical circuit board be identified?

  • Brian May 14, 2010

    There are many many IC's I touched up almost every solder joint on the main board on the bottom of the inside of the console. It hasnt helped at all. Any other ideas or ways to identify the correct one to look at?

Probably a bad solder joint on the vertical circuit. When things start to heat up the joint expands and makes a poor connection which causes the vertical hold to mess-up and the image begins to bounce. This can be a very easy repair an only run 75 bucks or it can be a painful process of trial and error. I would take it apart and inspect the board for cold solder joints or defects and hit them with an iron and some fresh solder.

Hope this helps,

    Unfortunately I have no experience with that particular model but it is an IC and the joint gets stressed from the heating/cooling and overtime the IC makes poor contact with the board. I would take the unit apart, unplug the ribbon cables and take a close look at every IC and component for any dry or fudgy connections and touch them up.

    Cheers,

How do I change a Curtis Mathes Analogue to Digital


You can't. The only way to change it would be to go and buy a new TV. Unless you're asking about hook a game console to it, that's a different procedure. The analog refers to the internal workings of the TV its self.

Curtis Mathes TV Remote Control Codes for Programming the remote to the TV


I own a One-for-All universal remote, and my booklet says the setup code for a Curtis Mathes TV (without a built-in DVD or VCR) is one of the following numbers: 0030, 0047, 0054, 0060, 0093, 0145, 0154, 0166, 0451, 0702. I can not guarantee these numbers will work with your remote, but it is worth a try.
