half a screen help
« on: August 05, 2014, 02:45:18 am »
I have a elenco oscilloscope 30 mHz oscilloscope model #s-1325. I was testing a 5v power rail. An then I noticed that the scope had a half a screen. I have tested everything I know how.
Can anybody help me figure out what's going on.
Lou I would appreciate any help
Sorry they out of order.
 I have a problem the silk screen on the board and the parts list are different. Does someone have some ideas what's going on.

Pics required.
Do you have a manual or schematic?

Maybe you've lost one of the deflection coils.
Either bad connection or blown driver.

It is Electrostatic deflection---guess "coils" was a typo!

Hi,

The horizontal and vertical amplifier are affected, could be a short in one of the output transistors of the h-amplifier, affecting  the +160V  power supply rail .

I have tested everything I know how.
You must first ensure all PSU rails are to spec.
As you have a trace, I would overlook the HV (2KV) supply for now.

Then refer to P53 onwards in the Troubleshooting your Oscilloscope pdf
Your schematic 6 shows the horizontal output amp and often 1 transistor will fail.
This is were I would suspect the problem is.

But to eliminate a further possibility, the sweep should also be checked for correct triangular wave output.
Normally you need another scope for this, however a slow timebase setting and a moving coil meter might do for a rough functionality check.

Hello,

I had EXACTLY the same fault with my Gould OS300 oscilloscope. It turned out that there are 2 transistors (look like voltage regulators, think the outline is TO-72) each of which do half of the trace. One of the transistors had a minute hole in the insulating washer and had shorted the case to ground. I took that transistor out and put the other transistor in its place. The trace then shifted to the other half of the screen which proved that that was the problem.
As the transistors were only £1 each I bought 2 new ones, fitted them and now I have a full trace!
I know my scope is a different make to yours but they all work the same basically.
The transistors in my scope are bolted to the chassis side by side, they're in the horizontal amplifier output. When you locate them, with power off do a quick ohms check for open or short circuits.
I'm sure you're aware but there is an awful lot of high voltage (2.4kV in mine) in oscilloscopes so they demand respect! Keep one hand in your pocket when poking around EHT as my teacher used to tell me!

I hope this is of help, please let me know how you get on.

Regards,

Chris.

Check the four transistors on the right of the H-FINAL circuit.

I suspect one or more of those have failed and that's where the fault is.

Also check the voltages as per the circuit diagram to make sure that they are all there.

Good luck!

Regards,

Chris.

I would like to explain about the transistors that are on my board are different than what I have in my service manual. In the service manual you'll see it's a 2sc 945 and of course on the board is 2sc 838.  The silkscreen layout of the pins is different than the datasheets. If you look at the picture that I sent you of the board you'll see a c838 transistor and if you look at the data sheet on this particular transistors it's different than what  the silkscreen says. The silkscreen says from right to left BC E and datasheets says from left to right you will see  cbe. I hope I'm not confuse anybody If I do I'm sorry but I am confuse myself there has to be an explanation of this procedure. I hope I explained this enough for everybody to understand. For more information the rest of the transistors on the board says from left to right BCE. So if anybody can help me out I would really appreciate.
Confused:

Close examination of your problem reveals the 838 much inferior to the 945. The pinouts are also different as you say and if no allowance was made for this the circuit will not work as intended.
Is there evidence that somebody has made a previous repair on this scope?

Replace with the correct 2SC945.

No the was new I bought myself. What about the silkscreen has anyone ever run across this problem. I have a bad switch on the magnifier times 10. So I have to find one of those. I am going to a pic on here and see if anyone would have one.

No wonder you are confused with components that do not match the schematic and wrong silkscreen.
But if you bought the scope new and it has been working until recently, we should not change any "working" components.
I believe your problem lies in the H-Final amp in your scan 6 of the schematics.
As has been posted before, very likely a failed transistor.
Usually one of the 4 output transistors as christopher iles has said.
Can you post those 4 transistor part numbers?

Do you have a multimeter with a transistor tester?
Check each transistor datasheet for Hfe and test that each transistor falls within the datasheet Hfe range.

That does not look right.
There are 2 PNP and 2 NPN in the schematic for the H-Final output stage.
Normally 2 matching pairs.

I am sorry you are right. The q650, is npn 2sc945 q651 is a npn 2sc945 q652 pnp is 2sa1015gr accourting to the service manual q653 is 2sa1015gr the same as the other transistor. Now the board the q650 is c1907 q651 c1907 q652 a1015 q653 a1015 q654 c1907 q653 c1907 q656 c1907 q657 a838 now are you guys confused.

2SC945 has a different pinout to 838. But if you can make it fit yes.
Not ideal, but good enough for a trial, then get the 838 later.

You can test the "diode" action of a transistor as a quick test. Google it.

BTW I nearly missed your edit to this post, you should point us to an important edit.  :-+

I should check the transistors even though they are different, manufacturers do change parts without notice sometimes. I would test all of the transistors in the x amp area and also check the voltage rails, particularly the 5v one as you may have accidentaly blown a regulator when you were checking the 5v rail.

Hope this helps,

Chris.

Have you downloaded the datasheets for the transistors in the H-Final amp?
Have you tested each transistor Hfe matches the datasheet?

Did you swap the leads for correct replacement?

You say :"it still does not work"
Do you mean the trace is still only half way across the display?

Good. I believe the H-Final amp is OK.

We must now return to a previous post to eliminate a faulty sweep as the cause.
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/repair/have-a-screen-help/msg493043/#msg493043

Google "CRO horizontal sweep theory" for docs for greater understanding of the next step.

Can you get access to another scope ?

These transistors are not a very good match, but may be OK for test purposes.
BUT they have a different pin out !

Have you have missed them !!!

These are the H Final output stage transistors that have been the most likely MAIN suspects from the start.

REMOVE each and test.

That cannot be correct, you have "half a screen". Get the datasheets to be sure you test correctly.

When I test the transistors the shows pnp or npn then it gives the pin order like ecb then the meter shows the letter k and nothing else when testing in the hfe mode. So what does that mean.
I do not know what the K means on your tester.

Important. Read carefully.

The schematic (6) shows Q658 & Q661 as PNP and Q659 & Q660 as NPN

The 2SC3423 is NPN but TO-220 package (Q659 & Q660)
The 2SC1306 is NPN and TO-126 package (Q658 & Q661) Should be PNP

Please check part numbers again, this is very wrong.
There must be 2 PNP and 2 NPN.

We must identify these 4 transistors correctly.

Should also be the same package for all 4 transistors.

If I could get another scope does it have to be a analog or digital.The four transistors are just what the parts list shows. Any further I do not want to say or do.

Have you correctly identified the 4 output transistors in your scope (q658 q659 q660 q661) ?
Are they TO-220 or TO-126?

Please post the 2 transistor part numbers that are in your scope. (H-Final output)
2S*****??
All markings please.
Carefully post them, all numbers plus any letters that might be separate to identify Hfe range.

OR good photos if you can.

Ok this is the 4 trans on the board. As you see that I have changed 2 trans they are the ones at the bottom of the pic. here is a pic. I hope that this will help you guys see what is going on.

From your picture:
2 x 2SA1360 Y PNP Hfe 120-240 (still in PCB)(you previously posted wrongly as c1306)
2 x 2SC3423 Y NPN Hfe 120-240 (shown removed)
Datasheets attached.
Although the datasheets list both transistors suitable for "Audio Frequency Amplifier Applications", they are used in a Video output stage.
If the manufacturer made this change from the schematic you have, you are best advised to seek the same transistors for replacements.

As you have substituted the NPN's and not fixed the fault, you need to check/replace the PNP's.

The NTE373 is not the best substitution match for NPN 2SC3423 but should be OK to test with, then replace.

A 1360 pnp is vcbo -150 v. -150
Correct.
Use the full name: 2SA1360 Y
If you have to get a substitute make sure it is at least -150 V rated.
Some datasheets do not show the voltage as -V, only V but PNP is the important bit.  ;)

Hi there again I seen on the forum this octopus circuit board. It has a 12v ct transfromer at 300 ma. I have a 12v ct at 3a is the anyway I can use it. If so do I need something to reduce the amps.

Have you replaced the PNP output transistors?
http://www.vyrian.com/part.php?part=2SA1360-Y%28Q%29

There is no point in testing the scope except the sweep that I expect is working fine.
It will be a sawtooth waveform that varies with the timebase setting.
