    HI Shamsul,

    If there is a good heater and g2 voltage then suspect a bad tube.

    HI Shamsul,

    You may need a crt rejuvenator to test it or if all the signals/voltages are tested good at the CRT board then suspect a bad tube. You may replace it with another tube but make sure the part number is the same. otherwise it can blow the HOT and other parts.

    Problem tv no power, saya dah check voltage kat kaki transformer scondary, 1 kaki sepatutnya voltage keluar around 130v direct to flyback
    but just only 30 to 40v. adakah transformer rosak??.

    HI Shamsul,

    You may need to isolate the problem by following this link:

    HI Shamsul,

    You may need to check the video IF ic to see if there is any signal output.

    HI Shamsul,

    Have not seen this problem before but the tuner is the biggest suspect. Tuner components except the legs are rarely have dry joints problem. Anyway, you can try it out.

    HI Shamsul,

    Biasanya tiada kaitan tetapi sekiranya supply voltage of vertical IC datang dari flyback maka ia ada kaitan.

    HI Shamsul,

    Tompok seperti itu ada kemungkinan masalah di posistor ataupun dry joint kat vertical output ic.

    Hi Shamsul,
    Since i do not have this circuit thus i do not know if this model have any protection in the primary side or not. Not all tv must use relay in protection circuit,some may use optoisolator circuit.

    i got the problem with zener diode, location at primary SMPS. already check and confirm zener diode already short. the problem is i don't know the voltage bcoz no part number at the body. body is red but only 1 blue stripes at katod side. can help me???

    Hi Shamsul,
    Try check other section to see if you can find the similar zener diode or not. You may need a zener diode tester to find out the voltage. Or the blue line could indicate it is a 6 volt or 6.1 volt zener diode.

    HI Shamsul,

    Is the main power supply have any output voltages? if zero volt then you may need to trace if there is supply to the main power supply power IC. Check to if the optoisolator or the relay have any signal coming from the cpu or not because a bad CPU can cause standby problem.

    1) Already check power supply section at 2ndary transformer after diode, 20v (Ecap 25v 2200uf) output direct to sound ic - ok. 10v (Ecap 16v 1000uf) output direct to feedback ic photecoupler - ok. what i found now is just only 10v (suppose to 130v) output direct to fly back and HOT transistor.

    2) May i know what is function PR57 ?

    Hi Shamsul,

    You may need to trace the B+ line or even isolate it because a shorted HOT, Flyback or even shorted horizontal yoke coil could cause the supply to become low.

    I have a small sub-woofer amplifier which uses a TDA2030 IC. The power supply smoothing capacitor tend to heat up very fast and became useless as soon as the volume was turned up. At first I suspected the capacitor was faulty. I replaced the capacitor three times and had the same problem over and over. I suspected the ic had shorted.
    Need your expert opinion.

    HI Shahidan,

    I suggest that you check the capacitor surrounding area and directly replace the ic and retest. Make sure also the voltage across the cap is not too near to the working voltage of the cap otherwise the cap may have problem.

    TV AKIRA, Problem no sound, what i found is capacitor 25v/2200uf blow. replace it and turn on power the cap become hot quickly . when i check the voltage is 25 to 30v supply from secondary transformer section after diode,it should be around 16 to 20v. my question is

    Ada kah component bhgian primary mempengaruhi output voltage di bahagian secondary transformer atau transformer rosak.???

    HI Shamsul,

    Does this tv use optoisolator ic? If yes then one of the components in this feedback circuitry may have problem. Otherwise you need to check on the primary side.

    HI Shamsul,
    Then i suggest that you check all components in the primary side. It could be one of the component that have problem increased the duty cycle causing the output to increase.

    Try check component in the optoisolator circuit. It could be a resistor that had gone high ohm.
