Default Re: CRT is brighter to one side [Hitachi CTP213]

I’m very cautious when the back is off, even when unplugged, just in case it’s still holding a charge.

So if it’s plugged in, I’ll take the best care possible.

Thanks

Back in post #65 you said that the burning smell was accompanied by the picture going dim. Is it now working again? If so burning dust is the most likely cause.

I haven't turned it on as I didnt want to risk it, I'll test it now and report back.

Thanks.

The PCB (Printed Circuit Board) will be mounted in the centre of the TV, most likely on a chassis. TV's of this generation typically have a metal chassis.

As Lawrence has said, do be careful.

You may find glue holding long-ish wire(s) in place on the track-side (sometimes referred to as the solder-side) of the circuit board, worth looking at any main PCB's or Sub-PCB's, the latter are much like daughter 'cards' in a desktop computer.

It wasn't uncommon to find TV's modified in this way by the factory, over a production run.

I wasn't suggesting you should do that as I'm no vintage TV expert.

If I were you I'd await advice from someone more knowledgable.
