This is infact a thermistor. Can you read any of the numbers on the part itself? I don't have the service manual for this model.

Need a circuit diagram for a Ryobi BCL14181H charger to try and identify a burned out resistor

I just removed and measured mine, it is reading 148ohms. Assuming a 5% tolerance, i'd say it's a 150ohm resistor. Mine has just gone but it's the semi conductor adjacent to that. If you can read the identity mark on top, would be greatly appreciated.

TV wont power on

Device is a thermistor (thermal resistor)
thermistor and a vatistor control the on
time of the degausser Sams Photofacts has the
schematic for the set have to match the suffix041eb6a.jpg
Some public Libraries stock photofact schematics you
may be able to go to al local library and get the part number
or the specs as to whether it is ptc or ntc etc to get a match
or online here

There must be something wrong with the luminance circuits and potentiometers on the board at the end of the picture tube. It can be also that you need to degauss your picture tube. Try degaussing it before tampering with the potentiometers.

There is a burned capacitor cx3210 and melted thermister thx3415 in Zenith B36A24Z Can dirt cause this problem from overheating or arcing?

When more dust accumulate, and absorbs moisture from the atmosphere, ther is a chance to get arcing. Clean the device by using a vaccum cleaner if possible. Burned degaussing coil cannot be repaired. It should be replaced along with degaussing posistor.

Both the the left and right have large color blobs, more intence at times, shows more on blk/white

There is a degaussing resistor that activates when tv is first turned on and purifies the screen so there is no color contamination, sometimes it will become defective or develope bad connections on the circuit board. The part looks like a box "black/green" and is located near the power cord. If it has stopped working it would explain the color blotches. To fix it! the part needs to be replaced or resolded back on the board and a degaussing coil used to give it the once over, tv tech carries one just for that purpose. The other possibility is if speakers are to close to the viewing screen the magnet will leave blotches and must be degaussed to correct it.

I unfortunately do not have a schematic for your set, but can give you some general information that may help.

Often these devices are either a VCR (voltage controlled resistor) or TCR (temperature controlled resistor) They are commonly used to "ramp up" power when the circuit is energized... in "old school" CRT sets, a common use was in the screen degaussing circuit. In LCD sets, they are most likely used to "fire up" the cold cathode discharge backlight tubes. They are indeed semiconductor devices and do not respond to digital meters... the input impedance is too high.You may get some sort of reading from an old Simpson 260 analog meter or something similar, but use caution because their operating voltage can damage semiconductor components. You would require a curve tracer to properly analyze the voltage ramp.

I just bought a dreamcast off ebay. The console powers on and then goes to the set time/date screen. I plug in both controllers and neither will change the settings...Are both controllers broke or is it a...

controller circuit board problem,,internal battery needs to be replaced, it blue and looks like a watch batt,,it is marked in the controller board as BT1.

Also on the controller board is a resistor or transistor marked F1 that needs to be replaced. You will need to do some soldering but it's not that difficult. They are colour coated so make sure you get the right one. They are very cheap and the battery can be picked up at walmart for under 10$

I have a hitachi 43FDX15B RPTV It appears to have a convergence problem, I've read about replacing the stk IC's but which resistors need to be replaced and what are the values on the DP15k/08 Board?

This model uses two of the STK-392-120 CHIPS and here are most of the usual resistors to suspect or check:

Hitachi AT03411S RK43 RESISTOR Hitachi AT03608S RP22 RESISTOR Hitachi AT03195S RK46,RK54, RK62 RESISTOR, 1.8OHM 1W Hitachi AT03857M R815,R865 RESISTOR, 1/2W 100 OHM Hitachi AT03191S RK50 RESISTOR, 1W 1.2 OHM Hitachi AT03197S RK50 RESISTOR, 1W 2.2 OHM Hitachi AT03199S RK41 RESISTOR, 2.7 OHM 1W Hitachi AT03202S RK42 RESISTOR, 3.3OHM 1W Hitachi AT03204S RK58 RESISTOR, 3.9 OHM 1 WATTThe RK ones are all marked on top and bottom of circuit board---usually if one is bad you will be able to see it is discolored---all are very low value and should read open or good only.

This is a fairly easy set to do this on---the whole convergence board (right side from the back view) is held in with 3 screws and an assortment of plugs--3 plugs are identical (convergence yokes and you need to mark so you get each back in same place)

A row of black snap plugs on the left side and with the screws and other plugs removed the board will lift up and out of the set.

DON'T waste your money on one of the "kits" being sold on the net---you can buy a pair of the chips for about 12 dollars on Ebay and usually only one (if any) of the resistors will be bad---those kits sound like a good idea but at 50-80 you are buying things you will not likely need to repair the set.

Let me know if you have any questions and if this information helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

I don't have the service manual copy. I was servicing these sets more than 6 years ago when I was working with a service contractor for warranty repairs.

The degausser is very simple. The AC is switched on with the relay. The relay feeds the degausser in series with the thermisistor. There is not very much involved to trace this out by following the traces on the circuit board.

The common fault is that the thermistor goes bad. You can order this part from any of the parts distributors for Sony parts. I cannot remember the cost of the thermosistor, but I think that from Sony it was in the area of about ten dollars at the time.

It is very rare that the coil or the relay goes bad. On some rare occasions I have seen cold solder connections cause the degausser to not function.

Your set will work with no degausser working. You can order from any place that sells parts for TV service, a manual degaussing coil that plugs in to the AC. You can manualy degausse the CRT face several times per week. This should work out well.

Manual CRT degausser coil:

My preference is original parts. But, if you want to chance an after market part check the link below.

Donberg Electronics sells some types of thermistors:

In the service shop we used a manual degausser when were changing picture tubes. We needed to have the screen degaused very fast so that we can do the purity and convergence set-up.

Hey !!! I solved my own problem. After I soldered up the thermistor I still had the same problem so I checked all the known parts around the startup circuit including the power supply relay and relay driver. All found to be good so I then attached a scope and signal generator and applied a horiz signal to the base of the Horiz output...voila!! I got high voltage so I tracked the horiz siganl thru the circuit and found a coil to be bad along with 2 electroletic Capacitors. The Zenith part number for the coil is 20-4073-01 and its part # on the board is LX3262. The caps are 4.7 Mfd @ 50 VDC located at CX3261 and 10 Mfd @ 350 VDC located at CX3205. I hope this will help someone else.
