Fault finding and repair tips
Repair tip
Measure circuitry (see diagram A2). Start at test-point P16.
Regardless the mode of the set, this voltage should always be available.
If protection is activated due to an absence of the Frame deflection, this
can be measured on test-point F10 (diagr. A4). Error 33 will be generated.
The BRIDGE_PROT could be triggered by an E/W failure.
An MAINS_DIP error (error 7) will be generated in both cases after 5
restart attempts, and will be visible via the blinking LED procedure.
ComPair is very useful here.
Measure 180 V behind R3341 (diagr. F) while operating, or measure
resistance of R3341 while set is of.
You have no picture, so:
Read out the error buffer via ComPair.
Read out blinking LED information via 'DIAGNOSE X' with DST.
When error is known, check circuitry related to supply voltage and I
Measure, dependent of the error, on the I
the bus. This protection can be overruled via SDM-entry (via short-
circuiting FRONT_DETECT to GND on Side I/O).
No contact of processor with the NVM. A lot of settings will therefore be
This could be caused by:
Short-circuited V
Short-circuited sound-winding (amplifier is short-circuiting 28 V) or
Short-circuited D6514 (due to a too high V
Delete excessive load to see where failure is caused by or check feed
back circuit. See repair-tip main power supply (supply needs a minimal
If e.g. V
is only about 90 V, regulator-IC 7506 could be damaged.
In case set reacts on local keyboard operation, error must be found in the
IR-receiver circuitry (diagram J).
Check RESET-circuitry on diagram B5. When switching on the set all I/o-
pins of processor should become high for a moment, so also the degauss-
input signal.
Measure and repair. With ComPair there is a beep-test that can determine
where the signal stops (use loudspeakers, headphone).
Measure A12, A13, A14, A15 and supply-line on diagram A6.
Measure test-points F3, R1, R2 on diagram A4.
Notice cable 1946.
First check in Service Alignment Mode, whether geometry can be
restored. If not check test point L4 and diagram A3, or measure with an
ohmmeter whether TS7480 is defective.
Probably R3468 on LSP (diagram A3) is interrupted, or bad connection
plug 0324 to 0224 (CRT-panel).
Align focus-potmeter of Line Transformer; check SCAVEM-circuitry on
CRT-panel [F].
Maybe an X-tal is making bad contact.
Investigate whether there exists an error code in the error buffer.
In case there is an error code, check I
overview supply-lines).
Measure and check signal path Tuner, HIP, PICNIC, HOP, RGB-amplifier.
In case it is a geometry-issue, check Frame-circuitry, alignments or
possible corrupted NVM (7012)
