Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Had the set 5 years. Problem occured about a month ago. We did have a power outage and then a surge when the power came back on. The TV worked for a couple of days after that.
I went on line and read some stories of other people who had the same problem and resolved it by replacing the sustain boards. I replaced the ZSUS first. That didn't resolve the problem so I replaced the YSUS board.
When I power the TV up, I think the green light blinks 3 times than stays on for a few seconds, then turns to red.
What do you think?
Yes, I have a meter. Is the power supply right where the power cord plugs in? What should the values be and where do you hook to?
OK ....... The jack shield is the outside of the RCA jack right?
The outputs are the center hole on the jacks ..... correct?
What is the Va & Vs voltage?
How do I identify the power supply?
If it turns out it's the power board, any suggestions where to buy one?
Thanks Aric, I'll give your advise a try and if I have more questions, I'll ask for you. I'll let you know how I make out ....... Packard
I think you put me on the right path. I checked those voltage values on the power board and they are real low, like 1/2 a volt. So I found a place on line located in Texas that will repair the power board for about $70. Thanks again for your help. I wish I had known about your service before I had invested in a YSUS board and a ZSUS board. Packard
