Question about Sony HMD A220 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Toshiba CF3566A Tac 9190

I have an ongoing problem with this TV set that I can not seem to solve on my own. Initially about a month ago, I turned on the set and after an hour or so it shut down. I unpluged & repluged and it powered back on & stayed on. The next day I turn it on & it shut down. Afterwards, I could hear a faint "ticking" sound. After viewing numerous posts in various TV forums, I ran across a post in this forum by someone named "pasty" who advised the following: "common for the horizontal output to short in these models is a 2sc3892a which shorts because of a 10uf 160V filter capicator on the primary of the H drive transformer deteriorates & distorts the Waveforms causing H out transistor to overheat & short". I also found another solution in another TV forum that advises that a [email protected] cap located at C871 on the power supply board is also known to cause problems. I have also found a solution that said to also replace the IC regulator along with the HOT. To summarize, I have replaced the HOT, the IC regulator, and the following electrolytic caps: a [email protected] on circuit # C871 on power supply board, and a [email protected] on circuit # C416 on the same board where the H.O.T. is located. Now then, after installing the above new parts, the TV powered up with a wonderful clear & crisp picture, but after 15 minutes it shut down. After it shut down there was NO "ticking" sound. I unplugged & replugged & it again powered on but again shut down after 15 minutes. The HOT tests good with my DMM, and I am at wits end trying to figure what is causing the TV to shut down. I am looking for a straight foward solution to help solve my problem. I have limited experience, therfore a step by step solution would be most appreciated!! I thank you.

    I suspect the IC regulator as it has lousy connections by a TV repairman. I have checked all other connections & they look good. There is a lot of damage on that part of the board where the IC regulator is. It must have burnt out sometime in the past. I think I have maybe a few bad resistors somewhere, but without knowing the values upfront & have to go by the colors on each will take me forever!!

The cuestion is if every time it shut down you have the hot shorted,or not. have measure the flyback/yoke/Hot working current? it must be under 0.6Amp ,if is greater something is wrong and cause overheating.Normally I touch with my fingers to "measure" the temperature. and what about the Micro?.there´s one pin that control power on/off ,is it good-solid data or is crazy . micro gets hot, have a correct 5Volt on its VDD pin. lot of cuestion that I hope helps you!!!

Toshiba 50HP66 went black after pop/crack sound

most units are made by someone else. your unit probably has LG parts. get the unit looked at by a Toshiba authorized servicer. they may be able to repair it at component level. the $900 you stated sounds at least $200 too high for board level repair.
