SYMPTOM Vertical stage problems
Listed below are a few fault conditions and their suggested remedies
Output transistors running hot
R508 high or open circuit
No front button operation
Will not come out of standby
R508 open circuit
Top of frame distorted
C501 and/or C514
Too much height
Change R520 to 68k
) or R508
Fold over at the top of the frame
Scanning coils (should read 9.9
Cramping (top or bottom)
D709, C713 and check all
semiconductors in vertical stage
Loss of picture (may be intermittent)
D504 and/or C502 leaky
1. When replacing semiconductors in the vertical output stage, it is strongly recommended that all parts are purchased
from the Sharp Spare Parts Center or Willow Vale Electronics using the part numbers in the service manual
(reproduced on page two).
2. C713 must be replaced with a high temperature type (use the part number given on page two).
3. Always check the +5Vb line fed into the bias network of Q507. If Q708 (+5Vb regulator/switch) goes leaky it may
cause intermittent operation problems, but the fault symptom appears to be the vertical stage.
4. If the vertical pulse to the microprocessor is missing or distorted (pin 46 of IC1001), then the key scan will not work.
5. Q509 must be the correct device.
6. When R508 is open circuit, both vertical output transistors turn on, thus overloading the power supply. This can
cause the power supply to buzz.
7. Q503 (BC828) may be a BD830 supplied as an alternative under part number RH-TX0204BMZZ.
8. Q509 (BC635) may be supplied under an alternative part number – RH-TX0118BMZZ. This is an identical device.
