This set clicks, the degausing coil energizes and thats all. Almost every solder joint on the power supply board was cold. The Hor out in circuit does not look shorted. I repaired the solder and the set is still dead. There is an STRS6301 on the power supply board. I have seen a few of these bad over the years and usually just replacing them restores proper operation. However lately I've been reading about the "A" version of this chip as being improved or better. Then again in some forums it seems that its not recommended to replace an original with an "A". Does anyone have any further insight on this? Also not having a schematic, does anyone have a straight forward troubleshooting procedure for this chassis or perhaps a published tip on it that they could possibly share with me? Thanks very much for any assistance you may be able to offer. Lenny Stein, Barlen Electronics.
