Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Yes i need more help on these opto-couplers

Where would they be on the signal board. The Signal board is the one where everything plugs into right? Also were would I get the right coupler replacements?
I also was thinking about replacing the STK392-110 IC'S and the 6.8 ohm 1 watt flameproof resistors on the Convergence board because of the halo efect issue. Do you think this is a good idea or will fix the green halo effect?

The halo effect is due to the green and blue CRT coolant being congealed this is a common problem. Red will not have the same condition. As for the opto-couplers they are located on the large signal board in the middle of the board all lined up in a row they will have board location numbers of 7412, 7406 and 7413 . 7412 is usually the culprit the part numbers for 7412 is 9322-105-14682 7406 and 7413 are the same part number 9338-894-15682

I have a Sanyo plc-xt25 LCD Projector and when I plug my ac cord in, the fans turn on but no lamp comes on. I changed the lamp and still no picture. What do I do?

Every projector lamp is equipped with ballast. The problem area is ballast. Either the ballast is not getting DC supply or the lamp turn ON signal from the projector main board or the ballast is faulty. Remove the lamp. Connect the projector to the mains supply. Check the voltage at the lamp connector inside the projector without turning it ON. It should be around 65 volts A/C. (Warning: Multimeter will get damaged if the projector power is turned ON due to generation of high voltage) If you find this 65 volts then it confirms that it has DC supply & the ballast is functioning. The ballast receives the the turn ON signal from microcontroller through opto-coupler on the ballast. The ballast opto-coupler can be checked by providing external 5V DC supply between pin 3 (+ve) & 4 (-ve) in turn switches ON the lamp. If this works then there is no problem with your lamp & ballast. The problem lies with the main board. If this does not solve your problem then give me the feedback.

Power supply problem in matsui tvr180, in STR section, can u please suggest me the circuit diagram to rectify my problem

The power supply, from memory, uses an STR type power supply chip and is controlled by use of an opto coupler.
In my experience the opto couplers hardly ever give trouble, nor the STR's if caught in time.
Change the capacitors around that part of the board within the hatched area especially look out for 22 or 47uF 35 Volt start up capacitor.
Hope that helps but the models changed from week to week depending on which factory the ubits came from.

My tv tries to turn on but shuts right back off

SMPS circuit problem Check the SMPS . Replace opto couplers.

Do not switch ON TV without opto coupler in circuit. SMPS will go out of control and the + DC voltage will raise and spoil the circuits.

Tv turns itself off after turning it on

Check SMPS circuit.
Check for dry capcitors. Replace OPTO coupler in the feed back circuit in SMPS.

Do not switch ON TV without opto coupler fixed in circuit.

SMPS will go out of control and the + DC voltage will raise infinitely and damage the other parts. If transistors used along with the opto coupler, check them for leakage. Replace them. Otherwise the replaced opto coupler may fail again after few days or few hours of TV working.

Thats usually related to the center opto coupler . I will research it and let you know the part number in an hour or so. Its a very inexspensive part and easy to replace.

The power led actually still comes on. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Thanks for all the help.

I just posted a response indicating that the stand up boards may need to be resaeted on the signal board if the audio still works casuse that can shut down the tubes

Do you know where I could find these opto-couplers?

when you look into the back of the set you will see a small board on the far left. The large board right next to the small board is where they are located on that board usually near the back edge of the board closest to you roughly in the center. You can try at the following link just leave them an email with the model number of your set and what youre looking for, They usually can get the hard to find parts. Heres the link.

Philips - Magnavox Model # 9P6034 C103 Picture problems? Please Help

1 5 oz bottle should be enough for each tube. The small picture is caused by bad opto-couplers on the large signal board. Let me know if you need more info on the couplers and where to get them
