You have to cut out the cracks and check for carbon tracking first, otherwise you are wasting your time. Then once that is clear, you then have to bake the transformer to drive out ALL moisture.
At this point, you dip it in a pot of hot boiling wax and that pot is sealable. once you do this...
No, i have not. because I have not personally encountered a machine with that problem. BUT... I do know that it will happen someday, as adhesives just naturally break down over time. it just, is what it is..
Look up 60s/70s color TVs and the PVA safety glass bond.
short means .000 or close to it. That seems normal to me.
You should start checking all components instead of throwing parts at it.
Such as, check the main regulator for shorts. check the switching transistors for shorts, etc... Sounds like the power supply grenaded itself and thats that.
Its possible the engineer for the international version ran into a parts availability problem, so he came up with a rather unconventional method of doing the task. And yeah you are correct about building the voltage drop at a certain point for the transistor to conduct, thus clamping the...
its acting like a memory out of bounds condition. like a pointer that got sent off into the weeds which just starts filling up memory with w/e, eventually hitting screen memory. So yeah, its not executing or reading the code properly.
I was going to ask, i dont see where you specify the actual problem unless i overlooked it.
Then i followed further in the thread and i wanna make sure i actually got this right: you get a chime with a raster.
What raster do you get? got a pic? what chime? Death chimes or good chimes? or good...
