RE: Philips Magnavox TV problem (Follow-Up #1)

On the CRT circuit board(picture tube), you will find R3340, which is a 10 ohm 1/3w resistor. The location of the resistor is printed on the bottom of the ckt board. It is burned open, replace with a 10 ohm 1/2w resistor. This will solve your problem. The original resistor was sized too small, should have been a 1/2 watt.

This resistor is mounted standing up on ends. Mount the replacement resistor the same way. You can probably get the resistor at your local Radio Shack. You will probably have to buy a package of 5, but what the hey . . . they are cheap.

Be careful and don't get the circuit trace too hot and damage the circuit trace. (it's very small)

Good luck.


I have what appears to be the same problem in a 35" Magnavox tv that I got for free. wavy lines, whitish screen and powers itself off. The model number of mine is TS3562 and the chassis number is 35R502-00AA. The resistor numbers do not appear to match up with the other board. Any ideas which resistor I'll need to replace, or if the problem can be solved the same way?
