TV Technician: Tim Nolan, TV Repair Technician replied 6 years ago

not possible...I think we are talking about different boards. I need the DC voltage on the pins of those connectors in red.

3.2 vdc

 

TV Technician: Tim Nolan, TV Repair Technician replied 6 years ago

What about at the same time you press the power button?

 

Tim

no change with power button. 3.2 vdc

 

TV Technician: Tim Nolan, TV Repair Technician replied 6 years ago

Ok what you need to do though is check the other pins right as you press the power button, you should get a few that are around 24v and some around 10v. they may only come up for a second and then go back down.

No 24 volts on any pins found .... any good sources to go to get new power supply board?

 

TV Technician: Tim Nolan, TV Repair Technician replied 6 years ago
