I received a phone call from my neighbor who wanted his television checked by a technician, I passed by his place and picked the television.
For those who have been doing CRT television you will agree with me that rarely does HOT transistor short without a cause.
Before replacing the HOT transistor, I decided to do some detective work and I was not happy with the diode shown below.
Kindly note that the photo was taken after replacing the diode with another I got from the junk but both were FR(fast recovery) diode otherwise if you use ordinary diode it will burn instantly.
This diode(D435) has one leg connected to the collector of the H.O.T.
After replacing these two components I decided to power up and see the effect and this is what I saw.
The television is now up and I run it for two hours nonstop and still no issue detected.
