Question about IBM E74 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Pincushion problem.. my E74 has a pincushion problem. When i trace the fault, i found the TIP122 place at heat sink near flyback is short. When i put a new one, it can works only for a few seconds and get short back. i try put the 2SD2058. The situation is same. Diode, capacitors, FET in pincushion line is ok. Is out there anyone that power-expert technicion can help me? Show me your expertise. TQ.

    2sd2058 bukan HOTransistor, BU2058 baru la HOTransistor, 2sd 2058 biasanya ada di monitor Samsung sebagai pincushion control. Saya guna sebagai substitute utk TIP122. HOT utk IBM E74 ni ok x short jd x nk suspect B+ coil short. Guna flyback tester pun lampu hijau jaa. Kalau open kaki collector 2sd2058 display ok cuma melengkung mcm pinggang.
    2sd2058 is not HOTransistor, BU2058 is HOTransistor, 2sd2058 is use in Samsung monitor as pincushion control. I use it as a substitution for TIP122 in several years ago(if i don't have TIP122 spare). HOTransistor for IBM E74 is ok, not short, so i don't think the B+ coil is short. The indicator of flyback tester is green that means primary coil is ok. If i free the 2sd2058 collector's pin, display is ok but the shape is very thin....

Hang cuba tengok B+ line. Check FET tidak pun cuba tengok B+ coil dh short kot.

    2SD2058 is it HOT transistor.? Try to check the primary coil fbt.

    Probably it has shorted that causes the Horizontal Output traansistor to blow up.

Power on problem

this is hardware problem - replace flyback transformer & big transisitor fixed near flyback (replacing these two parts is compulsory ) - also check all small size transistors ( 6 to 10 transistors will be there on main board - see picture ) - below shown picture is only to get an idea as how these parts looks like & roughly where they are situated on main board ... that means this picture is not that of your monitor's main board - in your monitor there will slight difference & also that bigsize transistor's number will be different ....... for more details about flyback transformer check this link

My Ibm monitor light blinks continously but nothing on screen and the is a clicking sound continously

There is a short within the HT section and this can be possible with the failure of the flyback transformer or the driver transisitor.
So if you are equipped please open the back panel and check for shorting on the driver, also when powered this can heat up which confirms that the flyback is shorted.
replace with the same type.

It may be due to the screen high screen voltage . You can correct it by adjusting screen control on the flyback transformer .

Dell monitor E773C 17"

It sounds like this needs component-level troubleshooting, probably in the signal section. It might also be loose connections or residue of some kind in one of the switches or on the switch board.
