36afx61 vert problem

On my schematic it shows a break in the foil and a circle around this area marked sl04 does this mean it should be soldered together because it is and it looks pretty sloppy

What is the vert problem? Usually, a break in the foil indicates separation of ground planes, but they will converge to a single point somewhere. If there is solder that ties the planes together, this may suggest that someone has modified the board. Again, what is the problem with the TV?

Best is a salvage yard.

If you havethe time and a voltage meter with Aligator clips,

I have removed wiring harnasses then

1. Disconnect battery

Wire brush male connections.

2. Trime a nail file to fit in female slots and clean with file

3. Connect Resistance meter (I prefer those that sound off when a connection is present) to both ends of wire,

follow each wire inspecting for cracks in insulations or worn areas, bend stretch and twist as you run the length of the wire. If the sound from the meter stops or needle moves. you found the bad wire or break in the wire.

I then replace the entire wire some just remove the bad area and splice wire together.

For splicing,

Cut and trim wire,

slide electrical shring wrap (one inch each side of splice length)on wire away from bare wire,

press wire together


If in car cover area around wire with aluminum foil

Flux the bare wires

solder with a conventional soldering iron and leaded solder

slide electrical shrink wrap over the bare wires,

heat to seal

It is only time and this process is easy when done on a junk yard harnass then when complete, install in the car.

I mark the wires with a paint pen when they check out ok.

Be systematic and careful and when don slide a cabel sheath over harnass


Vertical problem

• Check the Vertical IC foil path for possible cold solder joints

sample guide:

Standard Televisions

• Check the sorrounding components, oscillator

( on most it is embedded on the jungle IC )

• These symptoms can be from dried or open capacitors

resistors, Vert IC or both

• Check for voltages on the supply pins, some have negative


• Look for on-line datasheets most of them are free.

Warning message

If you mean a circle that looks sort of like a gear with an exclamation mark in the middle, it represents the Transaxle fault light.

To Person who answered Best Solution above,
This worked nicely thank you.
After removing my circuit board the long silver strip was intact, however where it makes the turn about quarter inch, the solder or foil seam had a break in it which I filled-gap with solder.
My guess is if the "foil" or thin 2" long strip is serving as a fuse, it would still melt again even with my solder on the shorter section, in event of overload. Also seen on the plastic area directly behind where the circuit board would mount, and where the "foil" was blown, was a small blackened area as evidence of the blown foil. 2 new bulbs and all is well again Thanks!

Cable break!

1. clear cut off the damaged section,
2..solder or ideally wire-wound the connections,
3. insulate the wires with plastic tape, or plastic sheet,
4. shield the wires with aluminum foils,
5. wrap up the outer.
6. done.

good luck

You have a cold solder connection on the vertical output IC or in the sweep power supply that feeds the voltages to the vertical output IC. You can download a service manual from here: Good Luck

Fixing horizontal line problem

If hitting the set gets the vert to come back then you have bad solder connections on the vert. outputs.. If it dosent then your gonna need to measure the voltage first on the vert output IC see if its about 24 or so volts If it is replace the IC. If its not the replace the vert B+ drive capacitor off the flyback xformer. If you cant find these things then your gonna need to get a schemtic from sams photo facts and post the vertical section and I will tell you or assist youin this repair. If you have had experience in soldering and curcuit work your already ahead in the repair. post the schematic.

Picture squnches into a thin line in center of screen

this set is known for cold solder connections on the vert output as well as the b+ supply line comming from the flyback xformer that supplys the voltage to the drivers. It could also be the vert output capacitor, The two waveshaper caps in the predriver stage of the vert, the filter cap off the flyback or the vert drive b+. Without going in and getting a schematic it will be hard to say. sets like that unfortantly these days are throwaways. NO NO NO dont throw the set at me I did mean that way!!! Its the cost factor of repairing getting the parts as well the the service diagram. it all adds up.
