Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I got a question pertaining to the following thread ( ). The OP said he replaced the board and it did not change the picture. Another poster ( ejb747vh ) said the same thing. What are the possible problems that could be causing this and what methods of diagnosing can we use? I have access to multimeter, oscilloscope, etc. The picture posted by the OP is very similar to my problem except the red lines seem more horizontal for me. Peter

    The menu functions work properly. Is there a way to check these boards outputs to determine which is malfunctioning? I have access to multimeter, oscilloscope, etc. I would like very much to find the board and even down to the component(s) that are causing the problems.

The only other possibility for this problem is the energy sustain circuit. There are two sustain boards x-sus and y-sus that you have to replace to get rid of this . The logic board was just one of the possibilities but it also has additional symptoms like the menu functions not working.

    I would have loved to help you do that but the only component that is not solid state on these boards are the electrolytic caps. You can try testing their capacitance to see if the values are abnormal.

How to reassemble a dell dimension 4700


There, did I say that loud enough? I want 'Everyone in the room to hear me'.

You body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE working on a computer, and BEFORE touching any of those hardware parts.
(Especially new ones in an anti-static bag or carton)

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.\

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, (Restroom break, lunch/dinner, etc), be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

I am looking for a multi function relay similar to the Dayton (1)6A855 but with a 240vac input not 120vac input. Can you assist please. Regards Bruce Peters

1) Dayton 6A855 time delay pin timer
Grainger owns Dayton, so you might want to contact Grainger

2) Time delay timers at Grainger:

3) Grainger shows time-delay 8-pin 120 or 240V
Grainger shows 11-pin 120 or 240V

Searching for "11 pin 240Volt delay timer" turned up results:

4) Following pdf shows knob-adjustable 240V delay-on pin timer

5) Signaline has delay timers (800) 862-2875


7) Another pdf with 240V delay pin timers

8) Not wanting to say what already know, but each 240V circuit is made from two out-of-phase 120V lines. Any 240Volt Load can be turned OFF by turning off one of the 120V lines. In this way, the Dayton 120V timer can be used to control 240V load.
Also the 120V Dayton can operate 120V double-pole contactor, and then the contactor controls 240V Load.

I have a Dell 4201C-HD plasma and the picture comes out with hundreds of horizontal lines and like repeater shadows.

1. Check for bad capacitors and transistors both through mount and
surface mounted in the vertical section of your TV.
2. If no problems are found focus your attention on the tuner check
for broken connections wiggle your coax connection to see if the
problem clears also check for open inductor coils.
3 Check the vertical and horizontal output chip if they read shorted

There is no Dell tech site for servicing the TV, there are no user servicable componets in the TV.

If the TV is uneconomically repairable, then I'd say cut your losses and buy a replacement.

I wish I had better news but with the cost of repairs increasing and the cost of replacements dropping older TV's are quickly becoming disposable rather than repairable.

here is an example:

Horizontal lines in photos

Take a look at this thread (the best solution by "techman"):

It appears many vendors have had complaints and the result is a CCD (image sensor) failure when exposed to high humidity and heat.

Hope this helps...
