1986 25 inch Curtis Mathis console tv
I have a curtis mathis console tv with a 8track player, casset player record player and a am/fm stereo, mod number on the box is F607 style TC2 seril number 04787814 new in the box never opened. where can i find out its value?
Screeen color is green
This fault is called one color predominant screen. The cause might be to its video output card itself. There will be some loose solder terminals around the Green video output transistor. Check this card for any loose solder terminals. Just re-solder all the suspected solder terminals by applying a little more solder, without making any solder bridge short in between adjacent solder terminals. This card can be located at the neck of the picture tube [a rectangular board], will be directly plugged on to the back of the picture tube.
How big is this tv
measure the screen onlyfrom corner to cornerE.g. top right corner of screen to bottom left corner of screen
THE RIGHT SIDE SPEAKER OUTPUT IS NOT WORKING
There are several reasons for this ranging from easiest to most difficullt. we will start with easiest....1. Your Right side speaker wire may have an "OPEN" in the line.2. Your "In"-put Device on right side may have a problem. Thus not be the "Out"-put problem.3. Your "out-put" jack on device may not be properly contacting both positive and negative points of contact on the jack itself (Female end).
I have a curtis mathes
$50 work great but frame cosmatic don't look that great.$75 buck,if still in exellent conditions as tv work and vey good condition cosmatic looking frame.
I have a curtis mathes model cmf2710s that lost
First you do is to check the speaker if good or not.If the speaker is deffect replace it, and if the speaker is good the problem is in the sound amplifier that located in the board of your television.Maybe the sound output ic is deffective.Need for repair and troubleshoot by the authorized tv technician.
My tv cord is not
Chances are real good that the power cord is not the problem. I have repaired this TV a long time ago. The problem will be a bad capacitor. The first, to suspect would be a 160 volt to 200 at 1Mf or 2.2Mf. It will be a small capacitor with a very important job.This capacitor is a power supply capacitor. I cannot recall the location or real value. But this information is very, very close. In the event you know of an electronic enthusiast, show him this note. Have him search with an ESR meter to locate this capacitor. The ESR meter will determine which cap or two you will replace. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!
I cant find my remote,
HMMMM....you have a bad capacitor in the deflection area of your TV. This bad cap will raise the high voltage to a level unaccustomed to the power supply. Eventually this TV will shut down. You will need a tech to find the capacitor or two and replace them. This will lower the voltage to a proper and working level. The remote or universal one, will not operate your TV properly at this time. A common problem for your Curtis Mathis. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.
Screen needs both horizontal and vertical
There are a few capacitors in the vertical circuit that has been a common failure for this set. If one of those go bad it will cause the picture to be stretched at top and bottom. The most common caps that fail and cause this are c303, c309, c310, and c311. I can't find anything in my notes that will cause it to be stretched horizontally for this model. The eeprom ic is also a common failure of these sets. It can cause color problems and all sorts of strange things. If it is only a couple of caps that needs changed, it will probably cost $40 - $60 to get repaired by a tech. It's hard to say what the eeprom would cost, because many sets require a good bit of time to set up after an eeprom change. It could cost anywhere from $40 - $80 to have someone change it.
Check on the manual control on the tv itself Vol + - buttons see if functions normallyTry website like Remotes.com to buy a remote same as an exact original remote.
This problems deguassing coil can't be solved it entermittent problems happening,sometime the coil deguass,sometime don't.I had this tv before,this problems happen to me once in awhile,could never pindown what the parts was dead,I change many parts tries to solved this problems before.I change resistors,capacitors and transistors,never solved the problems.My experience using this tv,when the coil don't deguass,turn the tv off,turn it back on liike 15 mins later than coil well do it deguassing.
