Having problems with your Projection Televisions ?

I have a zenith projection tv model r56w36. It won't stay on. When I remove the back panel and turn it on, I see a bright flash coming from the middle bulb on the right side of it where It looks


\015 It won't turn on. When I remove the back panel and turn it on, I see a bright flash coming from the middle bulb on the right side of it where It looks like a wire is connected and then I hear a click from the power board. All the capacitors appear to be fine. No bulging, leaking, or anything but it won't stay on. Should I remove each capacitor and test it? should I focus on replacing the center bulb? Please help\015

Answers :

Better be very careful here, if a pop or flash near one of the three crts or picture tubes there is serious voltage there.

the tubes each have a sealed wire delivering at least ten thousand volts to each tube===I have heard this before. likely what you have now is the seal they place where the wire enters the tube (2nd Anode) is arcing.

tube has to be removed to get at and reseal that--not a beginner or doit yourself job.

Note: if you keep turning it on sooner or later it will destroy other parts.
