Hi folks, looking for some help with t.v. problem. I'm a retired
electronics tech, but only worked in industrial electronics. Junior
comes along (3 weeks ago) & says dad, fix my t.v. burning smell, no
sound or pic & it goes tic, tic.tic. First thing I checked was the
line output transistor. Short circuit. Ordered a new one ($24.00)
turned the set on with the transistor out & power supply came up &
sound. Couldn't see any signs of distress anywhere, so installed the
new transistor. Everything o.k. soaked for 8 hours on a hot day & the
set ran perfectly. Gave it back & have since been told it failed the
next day. I don't have it back yet & don't know what the current
problem is, but I would put money on it being the line out transistor
again. I doubt that it is shorted turns in the line out transformer as
it certainly wouldn't run for 8 hours. I could change all the
electro's in the horizontal stage, but don't believe you should fix
faults by such a blanket approach. Any help greatly appreciated.  Dave.

Check for dry joints on the line driver transformer if fitted and look for
any distress marks or swelling on line output tuning capacitors (high
voltage polyester types)
