I'm looking for a schematic for a Sanyo Model DS25830 TV. Can you help?

Technician's Assistant: How old is your DS25830?

It was manufactured in March 1989, so it's pretty old

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Yes, it starts OK and then after a few minutes it shuts itself down all except for the channel marker indicator which stays lit. Then after a while it comes back on for a while and then does the same thing over again.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your DS25830? What happened right before this?

It started about three months ago. Nothing happened out of the ordinary prior to that time. I usually only use it for about an hour or so in the morning and about a half hour at night. It's always worked just fine up till now.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

Tube brightness is good and comes up quickly, contrast is good as well, audio is great and the remote works just fine. It's really a good TV for it's age

Thank you Harry. Yes I do. I am trying to correct a problem in the TV. I need the schematic to help me understand what is happening and why. I'm perfectly capable of repairing it with the proper information. I have a technical background, so it won't be Greek.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
All I really need is the schematic. I can do the rest.

Unfortunately, the TV is 29 years old so there isn't a schematic listed online for it.

OK. Thanks for trying. I'll just do what I can or toss it.
Thanks again

Harry, I know the bad news is not your fault. Of course I 'll give you five stars.. But I do have one question. Doesn't Sanyo have any archives where they keep records of old equipment that they sold?

They might but it is not available anywhere that I can see. You can try contacting them to see if they can pull something but I doubt it.
