Vizio SV470XVT1A and Harris TS22 Butt Set, a Good start to the Year.

clip_image001[4]

The last 2 days have been technically a fantastic year.  It started with 2 Harris Butt Sets and ended with a fixed Vizio 47" TV.  I had recently failed a cap replacement on an  Insteon device, so my electronics repair road was on a bad path.  It felt good to relive my roots.

 

The TV a Vizio SV470XVT1A was an interesting one, it intermittently displayed video, the back lights always worked.  Lots of documented voltages finally lead to a voltage regulator U10 on the daughter board, 0101-4072-0044 which showed a pin hanging at .4 mv when the set failed, and came up to 1.1 mv when it worked.  What a deal, the daughter board is near the cheapest one in the unit.  Amazon had a seller with a used one for $8.

The other items on the table were 2 Harris TS22 Butt sets. One an older model the other an ALO version. They have the quite normal CR2032 button cell went dead issue.   A good number of years ago I'd modified the ALO version with a much larger battery intended for a computer CMOS.

At Christmas, an Uncle of mine, who when I was a child gave me a series of electronics training books tossed a TS22 my way, saying do to mine what you did to yours. Given I still rely on the base knowledge learned from both the electrical and electronics books, I was happy to oblige. One book was named Antennas And Radio Propagation, where the discussion went as far to make antennas using telephone poles to hold the elements, now that's a big antenna. That was a fun book, there's a link at the end.

 

 

 

Back onto the Harris TS22 battery hack

 

The original replacement is still hooked up and working, the voltage was down to 1.4v, so it was close.

The ground wire was cut a bit long in order to solder it to the bottom of the button cell holder.

 

 

The positive pin also has a short lead attached to be used as a bridge for the solder tab holes.  The older model only pulled power from one of the pins, this one uses both. The coin cell holder needed trimmed down to clear the resistor.

Soldered that down with a squirt of hot glue to help stabilize it transformed the tool from an annoying battery replacement to a simple task.

 

I bought a 5 pack of the coin cell holders at Amazon for 4 bucks. http://amzn.to/1Oyi3aM

 

 

 

 

 

The other unit is a bit prettier as less material was removed from the battery holder.
