No Power In Hitachi TV Repaired

The complaint of this 21″ CRT Hitachi Television was no power. Once the cover was removed the first component I checked was the fuse.

The fuse was found to be opened circuit. This could mean there is a possibility some other components shorted in the circuitry.



I continued to check on the primary side of the power section and found the bridge rectifier was good!


Next I checked on the power IC and found that it was shorted. This is the reason why the fuse was blown.


When i removed the power IC and found that indeed it was exploded and cracked.

I then replaced the bad components with new one and connect a light bulb to check and make sure no more short circuit. It was indeed no more short circuit when the bulb did not light up.



Lastly the main fuse was put in and Powered On and the TV came back to life.

Conclusion- In total I found five bad components in this power supply side. In some repairs, there can be more or less bad components depending on how heavy the short circuit is. If you are a beginner and wish to learn how to repair CRT TVs you can click HERE for more information.

    Good job, Suranga. In the text you have mentioned three bad components, but in one of the pictures there are a total of five, not cited in your maintenance report. What happened to the other two?

    True, the other TWO components are not mentioned. What was wrong with them?

    I share Gary's comments. Great job though. Personally I don't like working on CRT TVs. I prefer LCD and LED for obvious reasons.

      Me too, my back can't handle those heavy CRT's anymore. But I still like learning about them since my scope has one in it.
