Disclaimer

The procedures described in this document require access to potentially dangerous voltages, proximity to the CRT and its implosion risk, and other possible dangers lurking inside a television set. We will not be responsible for personal injury resulting from attempting these repairs nor damage to the equipment that may result from lack of soldering experience or inadequate de-soldering or soldering equipment.

While your TV symptoms may fit those described in this document, there is no guarantee that this kit will fix your problem. The actual cause could be elsewhere. 

 


 

Unplug Power and all Cables

 

TV sets can hold a charge for a long time and can shock you even while unplugged if you are not careful.  It is strongly advised that you unplug your TV set from the wall at least 3 days before attempting the fix. This will give the set some time to discharge some of the stored electricity.  Do not plug your TV back in until the repairs are completed. 

 

 

 

Remove all Cable TV, Speaker, Audio/Video Cables from rear of set.  

 

 


Remove Rear Access Panel

Using the proper tools remove all the rear cover screws along the top, sides, and bottom of the rear panel.

 

 

 

Locate Cable "1516" 

 

 

You will see the number "1516" printed on the circuit board where the cable plugs in.  

 

 

Unplug Cable 1516 from the circuit board.

 

 

 

Power on your TV

 

If your TV lights up again with cable 1516 removed this is a good indication that you have a short on the SSB board.

Use the Contact Us link abve to request a kit to fix this problem.

In you email please give provide the following information

  • Your TV model number
  • Your TV chassis number
  • Symptom:
  • Also let us know what happened when you removed "1516".

 

 


Reassemble The TV

Reinstall the chassis in the reverse order that you disassembled it. Make sure that any plugs you disconnected are back into their proper connector. Make sure you double check every plug and connector by hand, not by sight, for loose or shifted connections.

 

Leave the rear cover off the TV so that you can monitor it while it powers on. If you see any sparks, glowing resistors, smoke, etc unplug the TV immediately.
