TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi Tim, I don't have a meter at this time but could borrow one should that be required, not 100% on how to use them.
the unit is around two years old
and there were no problems I noticed before it would simply not turn on anymore
all the chips are fine. When I disconnect the cable mark in red the tv does the same thing. except I get a slight coloured flicker lines across the screen for a split second.
I have disconnected it what now?
Done that. Tv acts like it did to begin with. ie: clicks once red led flashes 6 times and then does nothing, no screen flicker at all this time, and when remote is pressed the red led just rapid pulses but no response from tv
ok im confused about how I go forward please forgive me. If I click above good rating you get paid and then what happens, should I need more advice ? if I come back to this site do I automatically get to interact with you on this and how?
Or do I wait until I have tried the new x main board then if that resolves the issue do I come back and click that im happy with the outcome..
Again im sorry but this is the first time I have used this service so have no idea what to do next
Hi there Tim, I put another x main board in today and still the fault persists. I have borrowed a multi meter would you be able to help me set it up for testing purposes and maybe walk me through how to test things. and what to test?
Also with the new main board in, there is a cracking noise coming from the power supply board and a buzz on the y main board that just lasts a second or so. after that the problem is still exactly the same
Hi there it is automobile-multimeter 150.2040
sorry could you explain the red lead in the hole with the wire and also once I know what that is have I to touch the black lead to the raised metallic bit that says vs on it?
Is this with the mains connected or disconnected ?. ..
Sorry I used to do this stuff years ago but had three strokes and now cannot remember most of the things I learned....
on the wired connector on left hand side of panel the bottom pin says vs and when put in that the meter goes up to 30 then resets and continues to climb up. When touch metallic point it just says va on the board get reading of 12.95. if u like can send pic of the points on the board that I am touching to clarify I am doing it right...

Ok can I get back to you tomorrow I'm going to get the person who owns the meter to follow these instructions to make sure I'm giving correct readings.
ok sorry its taken so long to get back to you so im told the readings are on vs point it settled on 11v and on the va it settled on .5
