  • TV pincushioning

    Just a quick question before I lug my TV off to get repaired.

    What would cause a pincushing fault? ie bending in at the sides (all colours)?
    It did it this morning when I turned it on... and just now as I typed this it has failed completely.. ie no sound other than a beeping/squeaking and no lights.
    Can smell something too. I'm guessing a cap or similar has bit the dust... ?



    BEEP BEEP Richie! They ALL float down here. When your down here with us, you'll float too!

      Sounds like you'll have to get it repaired. No easy fix here.

        pincushion faults can be a prick to repair,or it may be as simple as a dryjoint.
        "You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today.
        They left a little note on the windscreen.
        It said, 'Parking Fine.' So that was nice."

          Hey Mickey,
          You Gotta watch out for that Euro Trash

          I can supply solution, Possibly

          OK it looks like a Grundig,

          This set may have a BEKO 1.1 Chassis

          The beeping you hear is the horizontal o/p transistor is short circuit,because of dry joints on coil or E/W transistor & D505 dual diode
          thats why e/w started playing up.
          there will also be a couple of fusable resistors o/c.

          pm if you want full details, or get it to a reputable repairer
          about $30.00 worth of parts
          an hours labour for someone who knows it.

          Regards,

                Got it back today =)
                "Horizontal drive and output stage faulty"

                Probably got jipped on the price, but I didn't want to upgrade yet

                  So it is all fixed and working?

                      Hi Mickey,

                      Good to hear you got your set back working ok,
                      that D505 is hard to get.
                      only been able to source from Grundig so far.
                      these sets have a pretty good chassis, and should last a while.

                      I wouldn't be in a hurry to upgrade yet either.
                      some good stuff just around the corner,

                      Regards,
                      Ando

                        Whoops, forgot that bit! Yeah it's all OK. Got it back in the cabinet tonight. Bad design (for such a big TV), as it doesn't have any handles!

                        Yeah that's what I thought. I don't mind paying, esp. being local and saving me alot of hassle.

                        Yeah if it wasn't for www.mouser.com I'd be looking for a new TV!
                        Buying direct usually means buying 1000+ pieces. Mouser let me buy 1 (I bought 10 ) for $8

                        I just don't see what the fuss is with the current generation of TV sets.. I just see too many flaws like blurring and pixelisation.
                        I'm more than happy with my flatscreen, widescreen CRT. Especially when half my stuff I watch is Xvid or just SD DVD.

                        Care to enlighten me on the good stuff?
