I have a 9000 chassis I fixed up a good while ago, which I connected to a tube a few weeks back, and it was working great. Put it to one side while I fix up the cab it's going in, and now it doesn't want to play. Confused

No neck glow but B+ is a steady 143v. Is that a tad high? Some googling suggests fault could be in heater circuit on neck board. Any idea what components I should test? Any other ideas what the problem might be?

Cheers!

I tried it with H Freq turned fully both ways, but still the same. Sorry, I don't know how to dummy load the B+. I'll pull the chassis out later today and see if I can spot anything suspect.

Cheers.

Well, think I've found the problem. Went to remove the neck board to take out the chassis, and this happened. Confused



No idea how this has happened, as I put it out of harms way and am pretty sure I haven't knocked the neck at any point. Bugger! This was a nice burn-free videocolor tube, too. Angry

Time to find yourself a 19/20" tv on freecycle and do a tube swap.

Luckily, I've got a spare tube - just has a couple of small scratches in it that I can probably live with. Just fired it up and all seems fine, so at least I know the chassis is good, still.
