Features; Safety Precautions; Check Of High Voltage Hold Down Circuit - Hitachi H972 Service Manual

High resolution color display monitor
Hide thumbs



1. Flat screen CRT with anti-glare, dynamic focus circuit,
dark glass, and INVAR shadow mask give the
sharpest focus and highest contrast.
2. Automatic scanning and automatic adjustment to
conform to a wide range of scanning frequencies and
user requirements.
3. Signal input allows D-Sub Mini 15-pin cable.
4. Power Save Mode automatically puts the monitor into
a standby mode (power consumption less than 15W)
when the H.sync. signal is not detected, and a power -
off mode (less than 5W) when the V.sync. signal is not
detected. Normal mode is restored immediately when
the H. sync. signal and the V.sync. signal are detected.
This feature prolongs monitor life and reduces energy
consumption by up to about 75 %.


NOTICE: Comply with all cautions and safety related
notes located on or inside the cabinet and on the chassis
or picture tube.
The following precautions must be observed.
1. Do not install, remove, or handle the picture tube in
any manner unless shatterproof goggles are worn.
People not so equipped should be kept away while
picture tubes are handled.
2. When replacing a chassis in the monitor, all the
protective devices must be put back in place, such as,
barriers, non-metallic knobs, adjustment and compartment
shields, and isolation resistor-capacitor, etc.
3. When service is required, observe the original lead
dress. Extra precaution should be taken to assure
correct lead dress in the high voltage circuitry area.
4 Always use the manufacturer's replacement components.
Especially critical components as indicated on the
circuit diagram should not be replaced by other
manufacturer's one. Furthermore where a short circuit
has occurred, replace those components that
indicate evidence of overheating.
5. Before returning a serviced monitor to the customer,
the service personnel must thoroughly test unit to be
certain that it is completely safe to operate without
danger of electrical shock, and be sure that no
protective device built into the monitor by the
manufacturer has become defective, or inadvertently
defeated during servicing.
Therefore, the following checks should be performed
for continued protection of the customer and service
6. In the case of the microprocessor unit, shop
adjustment is necessary after exchange of the
microprocessor unit.
High Voltage
This monitor is provided with a high voltage hold down
circuit for clearly indicating that voltage has increased in
excess of a predetermined value.
Comply with notes described in this Service Manual
regarding this hold down circuit when servicing, so that
this hold down circuit may function correctly.
Service Warning
With minimum Brightness and Contrast the operating
high voltage in this display is lower than 30 kV.
If any component having influence on the high voltage is
replaced, confirm that the high voltage with minimum
Brightness and Contrast is lower than 30 kV.
To measure high voltage use a high impedance
high-voltage meter.
ESH or Equivalent)
Connect (-) to chassis earth and (+) to the CDT anode
button. (See the following connection diagram Fig. 1.)
NOTE: Turn power switch off without fail before making
the connection to the Anode button
Model: ESH or equivalent.
TUBE: The source of X-radiation in this monitor is the
picture tube. The tube utilized in this chassis is specially
constructed to limit X-radiation emissions.
For continued X-radiation protection, the replacement
tube must be the same type as the original, manufacturer
approved type.
When troubleshooting and making test measurements in
a monitor with a problem of excessive high voltage, avoid
being unnecessarily close to the picture tube and the high
voltage components.
Do not operate the chassis longer than is necessary to
locate the cause of excessive voltage.
Checking of the high Voltage hold down circuit operation.
1. Turn the switch of the unit ON, and set the Brightness
and Contrast controls to max.
2. Turn the switch of the unit OFF.
3. Connect a DC Voltmeter and an adjustment jig as
shown in Fig. 2.
4. Set the adjustment VR to fully counterclockwise.
5. Turn the switch of the unit ON and gradually rotate the
adjustment VR clockwise.
6. Check that a reading of DC voltage-meter is less-than
0.60.1 V when picture disappears.
7. Turn the switch of the unit OFF immediately after
checking that the picture disappears.
8. Remove the adjusting jig and the DC voltmeter.
NOTE: Reading of 0.6 V is approximately equivalent to
30 kV of CDT Anode High Voltage.
