That's a nice list, the description of each devices role is excellent information.

As I said at the footnote (see below) of the article, anyone (member or guest viewers) who has further tips or stock i.c. fault info can add them to the article by using the comment for at the bottom of the page. I'm sure there are many more to add.

"That’s it for now of course there are many others, as and when I find info I will update. However if any of you ex TV engineers out there in vintage telly land with your encyclopedic memory have anything further to add, then please feel free to add more useful tips using the comment form below."

That is an excellent guide and well worthy of a thankyou.

I was reminded of an elderly engineer back in the late 80's who did not understand IC's and I can remember him randomly shorting pins together of an IC in a Panasonic TV with a screwdriver to see if he could "find" a fault.

I stood back awaiting a bang and smoke, but the set just died. I nearly did too. doh_gif
