Picked this up and had a bad power resistor solder joint, look at this pic, nothing like an old crt made in Japan still produces a nice pick.

Those Sanyo-built Sears sets from the mid '80's are good TV's. The CRT is probably either an RCA (EIA274) or Sylvania (EIA312).

The crt is a A48AAB26X.

Remember those well. IIRC labeled LXI.
Fun to work on & always ran nice. An underrated set.

There should be an EIA number (probably in small print) on the CRT label.

IIRC, those sets had an oddball vertical module that is basically a few surface mounted components on a small PC board that solders to the main chassis. Sometimes, these will develop cold solder joints.

Well that's lousy because I lost several little paper stickers when I used a blow gun to get rid of the dust. It did have a sticker on it that said Sears.
