Below is a short list of tools that you need to for most tv repairs.

Item #1) TV KIT ( If you have not done so already order the correct TV repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com)

Item #2) 45 Watt or less "Pencil" Soldering Iron ( See photo below )   Cost - 10.00 at your local Radio Shack store.


Item #3) Desoldering Iron - See Photo Below - Cost - 12.00  at your local Radio Shack Store

Item #4) Silver-Bearing Solder  - Cost between 3.00  - 5.00 at your local Radio Shack Store - Get the smallest diameter solder you can find.

Item #5) Solder Board - Costs around $1.99 at Radio Shack.   We highly recommend picking up one of these boards so that you can practice your soldering / de-soldering before doing the actual repair.

Item #6) Dip Socket  - Costs around 99 cents at Radio Shack.  These are inexpensive and great for practicing your soldering. Simply pop it into the solder board shown above and solder / de-solder a few times.

Item #7) Philips Screw Driver

Item #8) (Optional ) Multimeter  - Cost $10.00 - $30.00 at your local Radio Shack Store, Lowes, or Home Depot. Depending on the condition of your resistors or fuss you may not need this item. Just make sure it has a continuity feature which basically means it will beep or light up when it detects a good fuse, wire, solder spot, etc.
