Allan

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

The picture blinks about 2to3 sec.The menus blink also.

TV Technician: alr3d, Technician replied 5 years ago

ok

the upper right of your power supply has two connectors. look at the DC voltage on each line and see if one of them is not steady.

let me know what you find?

you can use the metal part of the back of the panel as ground.

TV Technician: alr3d, Technician replied 5 years ago

ok

where did you get your power supply board from?

 

 

Allan

 

also do you know how to solder?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
MCM Electronics XXX-XXX-XXXX yes I can solder
TV Technician: alr3d, Technician replied 5 years ago

this is a odd issue unless you got a bad board or your panel is bad. what i was going to suggest is we fix the old board....

 

let me know what you think?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
Ok. But how the 1st problem was it took time for the tv tocome on.Then it would not come on at all.I talk with another tv guy he said to replace the board? He tried only replaceing the capasitor and failed. You beleve I have bad new board?
TV Technician: alr3d, Technician replied 5 years ago

it is hard to say. the power board also feeds the inverters and that lights the back light and your are turning on and off so i think it is a power issue. but again it is a hard call. i fix these boards all the time by just replacing the bad caps...

 

also in some cases when this power board goes bad it can damage the main board,but i have never seen a main board have control of the back light only the sound and video. the manual does not show us all the info we need to figure this out so we kinda play the guessing game a little here. if we fix your board and it does the same thing we will know we have a bad main... but i have got bad boards from MCM before so it is a hard call.

I think I would like to return this board & buy new caps. I think they are all 10 volt 2200uf caps is this correct?
TV Technician: alr3d, Technician replied 5 years ago

i think you are right. but check the side of the cap to be 100% sure.
