Question about Sony HMD A220 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Toshiba CF3566A I have a problem with above referenced set. It was dead except for a faint "ticking". I found a post in this forum by "pasty" who advises the following: "Common for the horizontal output to short in these models is a 2sc3892A which usually shorts because of a 10 uf 160V filter capicitor on the primary of the H drive transformer deteriorates & distorts the waveforms causing H out transistor to overheat & short" I have located the Horizontal output transistor which is located at Q404. I replaced it. The TV now powers up (no Ticking noise) but shuts down after 10 to 15 minutes. I can NOT locate the above referenced 10 uf 160V filter capicitor. I have found one such cap on the power supply board and is identified as circut # C416. I dont think it is that one. I dont know where "the primary of H drive" is that the solution post refers to. Can someone please identify it for me by telling me on which board and what circut number it is? I am almost home free on this...I welcome any assistance. Thank you, The Bandit

    Sorry, but I was unable to follow your instructions because I did NOT understand them.
    But thanks anyway.

Follow the diagram, the base of the hor out should go to the secondary of the hor drive transformer, and going to the primary circuitry you should find a transistor, a small transistor, look for its collector and you should find a filter capacitor, may not be the same value but it is the filter capacitor.
