1500~1800 volts! do not use your DMM, it will blow it right up!
Firing voltage is high then drop down to about 500v after the CCFL conducts. What is it not doing? SCH is about impossible to get since Gateway does not make the monitors and the boards are my by 2~3 companies with its own secrets.
No bad caps?
Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps for you.

X-ray like colors on screen/almost iridescent

Seems to be negative picture. Check the voltages at the video output card, which can be located at the back of the picture tube, directly plugged on to it. Check the electrolytic smoothing capacitor there. If you wish to get more details, check this site. Faults to Video Output section circuit is described in detail with schematic diagrams. Pull up older posts.

There are some burnt carbon resistors beyond recognition on a peavey tnt bass I need the schematic diagram

Try these schematics:

Scroll down to "Get Manual" at the web page and click on it to download.

Please note that on the first schematic above, the power amp schematic is way down beyond the parts list and layout of the preamp section... keep scrolling. ALSO the powoer amp shows a real WIERD connection where the output transistors drive against ground and the center tap of the power supply transformer for the power amp portion then bounces around with the audio output... that is a wierd connection but it is possible.

Hello, I have a student in our electronics class that has an Emerson EWF2702. Problem is the tv has sound but only a white line will show up on the screen when it's turned on. Can you provide a diagram...

A single white line across the screen denotes the absence of vertical sweep. Its vertical output section, or its vertical deflection coil section [integrated to deflection coin assembly fixed at the neck of picture tube] may got damaged. Deflection coil faults are very rare. You just look into vertical sweep output and its dirve section. Check for all voltages. Check its main supply voltage. The output voltage must be almost about the half of its supply voltage. Usually most of the modern telivisions uses an IC in this stage. Sometimes that Ic may be faulty. Check it also. Schematic diagram of Emerson is not available with us; and is ver difficult to get. If you wants any further assistance contact me.

NO VIDEO BUT I DO GET SOUND. do i need a part?

As there is audo is Ok, your TVs all other functions up to horizonatal output section is Ok. The fault lies in the horzontal output section. It may be related to flyback transformer, horzontal drive section and so on. A through cheking is needed. We cannot predict the exact number of components used in your tv. It can only available from the schematic diagram of that tv.
The schematic diagran can be bought from electronic spare part shops. Just note the model number of your tv which is marked at the back side of tv, mark it an go for the schematic diagram. On some TVs, the mumber marked on the schematic and the used one may be different. The most critical is its winding compactability with each other.

My vizio gv42l fhdtv 10a picture flickers like a strobe light, on every input. had the tv since 08. inverter board? main board? Thanks Robert

you need to check first the power supply board whether the output supply 12-24vdc for the inverter board is stable and not can measure the output voltage with a get a voltage output of 12-24 with the inverter board is connected or loaded to the carefull of the high voltage at the inverter board..once the output is stable replace the inverter board or you can measure the output of the inverter be very carefull..the output range upto carefull..if the high voltage is stable replace the lamps...tnx and good luck..

Monitor on/off button flickers

The reason why the button of your monitor flickers is because the 12 volts output supply for your inverter board is not stable..
If you have the skills and the right tools for this, Here's what you need to do
1. If your monitor comes with a power supply adapter, open it..check and replace blown capacitor with same value..
2. If your monitor is using a cable power the back cover of your lcd..on the power supply section.. check and replace blown capacitor.
3. Check and resolder the terminals for fixing possible loose connections.
4. On the inverter board section...check and resolder the terminals for fixing possible loose connections, the high voltage inverter usually loose connections when overheat.
5. Other things to check if step 1 to 4 did not resolve your problem. Check and replace burnt high voltage transformer.. Check and replace busted backlight inverter..

Hope this fix your problems..

thanks.. much appreciated if you rate this help.

My lifebook 4215 doesnot display on its screen but can display to an external monitor because the output section of the mb has no small ic like components and a cable jack can I please have a proper...

Call the Fujitsu service 800 number, you may still be under warranty.
It sounds like the inverter has burnt out, take it to a Fujitsu authorized repair shop, your tablet has a security feature that will lock you out if it is opened by an unauthorized repair shop or anyone else for that matter.
They take your tablet security very serious.

The problem you described sounds like either your inverter or back-light has malfunctioned. There is a way to test this. Turn your TV set on and in a dark room shine a flashlight onto the screen and see if you can make out a faint image of a picture. If you can this means that the back-light or the inverter has malfunctioned. Now at this point I should tell you if either of these has failed you have to make sure to check if the back-light, inverter and LCD screen are not one unit, because if it is the screen with the inverter and back-light will cost as much as the entire TV. If the screen inverter and back-light are separate devices then you will only have to replace the defective part. These are the pieces of equipment and documentation that you will need to properly repair this problem:

1) The schematic for the TV try
2) A Multimeter To measure the voltage levels and bias voltages of the inverter and back-light inputs and outputs
3) Signal generator To establish a know good test signal for proper measurements
4) Oscilloscope To measure wave patterns from the Video output feed.

Use the schematic to show you what the voltages should be at different points on the back-light and the inverter. Use the multimeter to measure these bias voltages and voltage levels on the back-light and inverter pins and board connections. Use the signal generator connected to the F connector of the TV to establish a known good signal to the TV. Then use the oscilloscope to measure and view the video signal levels and the data stream that form the picture.

You may have to do a lot of removal of boards to get the the LCD back-light and inverter, however the schematic will help you with this (Remember to mark all cables for easy reinstallation).

This is the way to do this if you are going to attempt this yourself. If not please have a qualified TV repair-person give you an estimate of cost and have them repair the TV set.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

I see only horizontal line on TV Samsung CK-5339ZB

h/line is due to vertical section failure. 1 reduce brightness as you will get h/line due to vertical failure. 2 check v/section for loose contact or yoke connection. 3 check supply to vertical section. 4 check associated parts in v.section 5 at last check for vertical ic. resistor R410 CONNECTED TO high voltage transformator T444 is low value resistor. .5ohm to 10 ohm. it burnt again due to short cht in vertical mainly due to ic. hope this will help. as per schematic diagram go to
