Our apologies for the delay in posting new tips over the last few days, We are currently working on a MAJOR database update which will be available in a few days :-)
Hitachi TV Model: C2133TN (Nokia Stereo Plus) Chassis)Very strong red content in the picture, sometimes the fault would clear with the strong red content fading until the correct greyscale was achievedAfter much searching around i found the problem. There was a very small crack in the solder at RH23, this is a 2K4 surface mounted resistor located at the back of the tube base. Resoldering both sides of it cured the fault(Sparky)
Jvc TV Model: C-V14EKS/B/W (Onwa Chassis)No RedI was hoping the nvm had become corrupt and turned the red drive down but it was fine (To enter service mode press and hold vol up and vol down on the front panel and switch set on). Thankfully ZD405 (8V2) had expired (almost s/c) and removed the red(Andy Doswell)
Sanyo Video Model: VHR776EDeadCheck and replace PR512 (which is located towards the front right hand side)(T.t.r.s. - Tim)
Nikkai TV Model: BABY 10No / int luminancePoor contacts within the service switch(John)

Philips Video Model: VR200Unit not working, no FL display, ticking from PSU, head drum twitchingElectrolytic cap in PSU primary dried up (47uF, 50v)(Anonymous)
Ideal/Slx TV Model: IDTV28T/IDTV28N/SLX28T2/28N (SM2 Chassis)EW fault then set went dead (tripping), R711 on EW panel burntCheck for dry joints on C620 (0.47uF, 250V), if dry replace then check Q602 and R618 (5K6). Also it is worth replacing Q580 anytime these sets come into the workshop with a BF422(Leonard O'Brien)
Philips TV Model: 25PT4423 (L6.2 Chassis)Stuck in standby, LED on, no HTThere may be no 5V to the microprocessor. Check R3509 and D6501. Replace R3509 with a 47k 1 Watt version (4822 053 10473). D6501 is type BZX79B5V6 (4822 130 34173). Check the +150 volt rail, 145V is too low(Adel Ibrahim)
Rca TV Model: F27442 (CTC203AD5 Chassis)No picture and sound, only a high pitch sound at switch onRemove horizontal transistor and measure the resistance across any two pins. This value should be no less than 200ohms(Roughtest)
Sony TV Model: KV-M2131U (BE1 Chassis)Intermittent loss of syncronisation, both horizontal and verticalThe surface mounted power transistor on the teletext module requires resoldering. As there is evidence of scorching on the board the use of a more substantial component would be indicated perhaps with small heatsink(Desmond Armstrong)
Samsung TV Model: CZ-21D83NSDouble picture or raster shiftedCheck R414 (15K)(Leonard)
Sony TV Model: KV2565Dead with H. output short circuit, replacment blows short againFirst check power area and repair dry joints then change all high voltage (PF value) capacitors in the horizontal section, this fixed the problem(Imran Khan)
Mitsubishi TV Model: CT29B2STXVarious faults, dead, int. dead, poor frame, poor E-WChange all electrolytic capacitors in the primary. Check all large electrolytics in the secondary (Ie bigger that 470uF), check all capacitors around IC950 (error amp.). Most capacitors you will find are leaking electrolyte. Might be a long job!!!(Andy Doswell)
Sony Video Model: SLV-E800No picture - screen is empty. Sound is okCheck IC101 (BA7630F), if video signal comes to input (pin 1) but not present at output (pin 14) then replace this IC(Raymundo)
Panasonic Video Model: NVHD650BFault code F80. works occassionally then doesnt work at allThere is a plastic piece on the motor which rotates when you press play or eject. A plastic cap fits on the spindle of the motor. This slips and doesnt grip the motor hence does not turn the drive gears. Just glue or replace the part (use loctite or super glue)(Dal)
