Cathode emission check for colour picture tubes


<p>How to check the colour cathodes of a picture tube for emission<br /> <p> <br> <p>It is very easy to cehck the emission of the cathodes of a colour picture tube. Assuming all other circuit parts are working, including LOT [Line output Transformer] and video output section.<span> </SPAN>There is proper screen voltage; focus voltage and EHT [Extra High Tension]. Locate the three cathode points on the base card, usually marked as Gk, Bk and Rk.<span> </SPAN>Keep the brightness, contrast and colour control to zero position.<span> </SPAN>Take a wire of suitable length, say 50cms or so, tie its one end to TVs chasis [negative].<span> </SPAN>Take one resistor of value 100K 1W, tie its one end to the other end or the wire, thus one end of this resistor is now connected to negative chasis and the other end of it is free now.<span> </SPAN>Hold this resistor with with some electrically noncunductive material [using hand gloves will be better]; switch on the Tv, wait a minute or so to get it warm up.<span> </SPAN>Just make a touch at each cathode of the picture tube base card solderings.<span> </SPAN>Just one touch will give you a colour of the respecive cathode on the screen.<span> </SPAN>Never hold it for long time. This process can be used for checking cathode emission of any type of Cathode Ray Picture tubes. <br> <p>

My Nikon D50 in picture play back mode is giving pictures in multi colour not as pictures ?


I'm not sure what you mean by "multi-colour mode" but this page shows all of the possible playback display modes and describes them. Hopefully this helps you. I use a D7000 which is quite similar and I've never seen a multi-color mode. Nikon D50 SLR Review

12b809f.jpgHere is what my pics look like. It was a progressive defect, some good pics, then these in between. Now they are all bad. I found this info below... even though the SP350 is not listed, I am going to call Olympus tomorrow. Good luck!

The camera takes blank images, or the image is distorted
  • There are a number of digital cameras models sold by Canon, Fuji, Konica-Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Ricoh, and Sony (and possibly others) which use CCDs (image sensors) manufactured by Sony which have had a high rate of failure. Details can be found at http://www.imaging-resource.com/NEWS/1128958202.html
  • Most manufacturers will replace defective CCDs affected by this problem at no charge, regardless of warranty status. This service advisory (technically, it is not a "recall", since recalls are related to safety issues) only applies to certain models and certain serial number ranges.
  • If your camera exhibits the symptoms listed above, we recommend following the link or calling Olympus Customer Service at 800-622-6372. We do not replace the CCDs in Camedia or Digital Stylus models.

Sony Tv 29 Inchs, The Picture Keep Swiching off and replaced by fable shadowi pinky multi colour light


Your symptom description is a little vague. Is there sound? Is there a full screen? Assuming there is a full screen and sound I would look for bad solder joints on the boards. Particularly the CRT board but really just resolder all the connections in the set. The KV series has been plagued with more than their share of bad solder joints. Give this a try first and if this doesn't solve it give us a more detailed explanation of the problem. Good luck.
