Crt coolant leak onto pwb

I had this happen to me a few weeks ago on a pcl5415r. the tv was sparking from the bottom and a pwb (just above the bottom of the unit) caught fire. i wouldnt consider a cooling loop necesarilly a wear item and i was lucky i was right there when it happen to shut the tv off. would it be unreasonable to ask samsung to cover such a repair. i've got an estimate from the local samsung service place $500-$600. they showed me the oily spot when coolant had leaked onto a circuit board.

    sticker shows september/2001 for mfg date. this appears to be a common problem, they should've issued a recall. these tv's can catch fire, and burn up a house. fortunately i was right there when the circuit board flare up and started burning. many times you turn on a tv a walk away for a moment. my two sisters in law have the same exact model part of the same purchase.

P0300: SOMETIMES rough idle, shake a lot OR less power above 50mph then got this code


Spark plugs in your car are good for 100,000 miles. try changing fuel filter and add a can of B&G 44K fuel additive. This stuff is the best on the market and only available at dealerships. It conditions fuel pump and injectors, also absorbs water in fuel (methanol). Try this first, your car is too new for any other problems. this should help drivability and fuel mileage. If Nissan does not have B&G, I know Toyota does. Also stay with 91 octane fuel. Check oil and coolant often. do not risk overheating in traffic, watch your gauges......

Take it to a shop and ask them to put it up on a lift, take a look and figure out where it is leaking. They can tell you and also how much to fix.

You will need to pull the complete crt assembly one at a time, Drain the coolant then remove the screws that secure the lens to the crt. But then you will need to replace the coolant. Do not try to loosen the lens while still in the TV or the CRT coolant will leak onto the chassis which can destroy the Chassis. You can get a CRT coolant kit at www.tvrepairworld.com which will contain the coolant and the Instructions.

Screen looks oval left and right


If I understand your description correctly, the picture essentially looks like this: ( ). In other words, the top and bottom are straight, but the sides look like the above.

This is a problem with the pincushion circuit. Plesae verify the model number of the set you have and I'll try to get you the probable parts that have failed.

Thanks,
Dan

1998 mitsubishi big screen model VS-50603


this model is famous for fluid leaks. each projector tube has a reservoir on the front of it with a fluid in it. this keeps the face of the tube cool.
this depends on how bad the damage is in the tv. in most cases we can reseal the tube and clean up the fluid 400-600.
Once you
take the tube out you will see where it leaked. The problem is that the
frame on the CRT that the heavy screws with springs are mounted on (that
hold the lens coupled to the CRT) is weak and they can bend. We have seen
several that have leaked after the customer moved the set. You can only
tighten them down so much because the frame bends. It is just stamped metal
and not welded at the corners to support the bend.

We remove the CRT, clean it all up, add a very small amount of RTV sealer to
the gasket, reassemble, let the RTV cure thoroughly and refill with coolant.
The extra sealer should prevent future leaks. Haven't had a recall yet.
Mits says replace the CRT...too costly.

You msut check the yokes carefully as well. If any coolant gets into them
you can end up with shorts there and a mess.

Clean the boards carefully and repair any corrosion damage. The coolant is
ethylene glycol and glycerine which is water soluable.
