1.1 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
(1) The design of this product contains special hardware, many circuits
and components specially for safety purposes. For continued
protection, no changes should be made to the original design unless
authorized in writing by the manufacturer. Replacement parts must
be identical to those used in the original circuits. Service should be
performed by qualified personnel only.
(2) Alterations of the design or circuitry of the products should not be
made. Any design alterations or additions will void the manufacturer's
warranty and will further relieve the manufacturer of responsibility for
personal injury or property damage resulting therefrom.
(3) Many electrical and mechanical parts in the products have special
safety-related characteristics. These characteristics are often not
evident from visual inspection nor can the protection afforded by them
necessarily be obtained by using replacement components rated for
higher voltage, wattage, etc. Replacement parts that have these
special safety characteristics are identified in the parts list of Service
manual. Electrical components having such features are
identified by shading on the schematics and by (
) on the parts
list in Service manual. The use of a substitute replacement which
does not have the same safety characteristics as the recommended
replacement part shown in the parts list of Service manual may cause
shock, fire, or other hazards.
(4) Use isolation transformer when hot chassis.
The chassis and any sub-chassis contained in some products are
connected to one side of the AC power line. An isolation transformer
of adequate capacity should be inserted between the product and the
AC power supply point while performing any service on some
products when the HOT chassis is exposed.
(5) Don't short between the LIVE side ground and ISOLATED
(NEUTRAL) side ground or EARTH side ground when repairing.
Some model's power circuit is partly different in the GND. The
difference of the GND is shown by the LIVE : (
) side GND, the
ISOLATED(NEUTRAL) : ( ) side GND and EARTH : (
) side GND.
Don't short between the LIVE side GND and ISOLATED(NEUTRAL)
side GND or EARTH side GND and never measure with a measuring
ISOLATED(NEUTRAL) side GND or EARTH side GND at the same
If above note will not be kept, a fuse or any parts will be broken.
(6) The high voltage applied to the picture tube must conform with that
specified in Service manual. Excessive high voltage can cause an
increase in X-Ray emission, arcing and possible component damage,
therefore operation under excessive high voltage conditions should
be kept to a minimum, or should be prevented. If severe arcing
occurs, remove the AC power immediately and determine the cause
by visual inspection (incorrect installation, cracked or melted high
voltage harness, poor soldering, etc.). To maintain the proper
minimum level of soft X-Ray emission, components in the high
voltage circuitry including the picture tube must be the exact
replacements or alternatives approved by the manufacturer of the
(7) If any repair has been made to the chassis, it is recommended that
the B1 setting should be checked or adjusted (See ADJUSTMENT
OF B1 POWER SUPPLY).
(8) Do not check high voltage by drawing an arc. Use a high voltage
meter or a high voltage probe with a VTVM. Discharge the picture
tube before attempting meter connection, by connecting a clip lead to
the ground frame and connecting the other end of the lead through a
2W resistor to the anode button.
(9) When service is required, observe the original lead dress. Extra
precaution should be given to assure correct lead dress in the high
voltage circuit area. Where a short circuit has occurred, those
components that indicate evidence of overheating should be
replaced. Always use the manufacturer's replacement components.
(10) Isolation Check
(Safety for Electrical Shock Hazard)After re-assembling the
product, always perform an isolation check on the exposed metal
parts of the cabinet (antenna terminals, video/audio input and output
terminals, Control knobs, metal cabinet, screwheads, earphone jack,
control shafts, etc.) to be sure the product is safe to operate without
danger of electrical shock.
a) Dielectric Strength Test
The isolation between the AC primary circuit and all metal
parts exposed to the user, particularly any exposed metal part
having a return path to the chassis should withstand a voltage
of 1100V AC (r.m.s.) for a period of one second.
(. . . . Withstand a voltage of 1100V AC (r.m.s.) to an appliance
rated up to 120V, and 3000V AC (r.m.s.) to an appliance rated
200V or more, for a period of one second.)
This method of test requires test equipment not generally
found in the service trade.
b) Leakage Current Check
Plug the AC line cord directly into the AC outlet (do not use a
line isolation transformer during this check.). Using a
Current Tester", measure the leakage current from each
exposed metal part of the cabinet, particularly any exposed
metal part having a return path to the chassis, to a known good
earth ground (water pipe, etc.). Any leakage current must not
exceed 0.5mA AC (r.m.s.). However, in tropical area, this must
not exceed 0.2mA AC (r.m.s).
· Alternate Check Method
Plug the AC line cord directly into the AC outlet (do not use
a line isolation transformer during this check.). Use an AC
voltmeter having 1000 ohms per volt or more sensitivity in
the following manner. Connect a 1500ohm 10W resistor
paralleled by a 0.15µF AC-type capacitor between an
exposed metal part and a known good earth ground (water
pipe, etc.). Measure the AC voltage across the resistor with
the AC voltmeter. Move the resistor connection to each
exposed metal part, particularly any exposed metal part
having a return path to the chassis, and measure the AC
voltage across the resistor. Now, reverse the plug in the AC
outlet and repeat each measurement. Any voltage
measured must not exceed 0.75V AC (r.m.s.). This
corresponds to 0.5mA AC (r.m.s.).
However, in tropical area, this must not exceed 0.3V AC
(r.m.s.). This corresponds to 0.2mA AC (r.m.s.).
(11) High voltage hold down circuit check.
After repair of the high voltage hold down circuit, this circuit shall be
checked to operate correctly.
