Restoring A CRT TV With Philips China Kit
SET MODEL NUMBER AND MAKE: Toshiba 219X6M fitted with very old China kit using Philips circuit.
Complaint: Intermittent colour, poor picture quality, set goes off.
Action taken: Opened and cleaned the set thoroughly, as it had collected a lot of dust, dirt and cobweb.
Observation and troubleshooting done: Saw a lot of dry solders all around. The ESR of electrolytic capacitors were almost all out of range.
Rectification done: Replaced all electrolytic capacitors on the board. Then completed dry solder patch up on the main board and CRT PCB. Replaced the CRT Socket. Replaced the Anode connector and cap. Replaced one speaker as it was open. Rechecked board for any man made shorts. After cleaning and lubricating all the contacts and connectors, mounted the Board to the CRT Tube.
Result: Set worked perfectly well. Satisfaction thus jumped into the bag, which looks like has become automatic!
