This board is from a Sylvania Halo Light tv model 21C534B with a chassis 1-541-3(?). There are 3 sets of of 2 rubber banded capacitors. What is the purpose of doing that. Also 2 sets have 1 of the caps painted red. Matched sets?

I suspect it's just to help keep them upright and in place. Or maybe they were banded together at the factory so the assembler could just grab the pair they needed with one motion.

If those bands are original then it amazing they still exist in as recognizable a form as they do. Most rubber bands I see over 5 years old turn to crunchy dust, and older ones typically are just a fragment.

Those are caps, plain and simple. Craig

Some form of metal oxide or metal film resistors were available in that era, and show up as power resistors in color TV sets. That said, the 2 resistors in your picture are definitely modern.

Just curious, do the values of those caps match what the schematic says they should be?
