I have a Sony KDS-R50XBR1...
I have a Sony KDS-R50XBR1 that stopped working after a power outage, although it was not turned on the power outage was not related to a lightning storm. The green lamp is not turning on although I replaced the bulb. How do I troubleshoot the problem?

Mike, the mfg date for the Sony is 2006, and the bulb was just purchased NEW from an ebay vendor. It is a high-quality osram. The problem I am having is that the TV is noting showing any power, that is a green light or any flashing diagnostic. Only bulbs have been replaced in the past. How do I troubleshoot the problem if there is no indication that power is on?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Thanks for the reply.This indicates that the power board is not powering up at all. The quick fix is that it could be simply that the fuse is blown. To acceshttp://my.justanswer.com/question/guest/f85cfb9e66874f0f87e412ccaa8092af the fuse, you will need to remove the screws on the rear of the TV and remove the entire rear panel. The fuse will be located on the board where the power cord connects. Replace with one of the same type and rating from your local Hardware store.I just found this response from Avic, another technician on this site who responded to a prior question. This sounds like the same issue I am having with my tv.If the set still does not power on, I would say that there is a cold solder-joint, or a failed component (likely the capacitors) on the power supply board. The capacitors failing is the MOST common problem with these sets, especially after a storm or power outage. The caps themselves can be replaced for around $150 parts and labor.

I've tested my fuse with my voltmeter for resistance and I have a reading of 1.0 ohms. How do I test the capacitors on the power supply board, which I assume are the two large black capacitors? Also, I use a protected power strip for the power hookup, won't this provide protection, or is the condition of the power outage, and power turning on suddenly causing the caps to fail, or is the age of the
components that are the problem? Also how expensive and difficult is it to replace the capacitors?

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially and on the described symptom of "...TV is noting showing any power..." proposed preliminary checks (if have not been done) on:• 120VAC at both end 2-pin connectors of the F board;• +156V at bridge diode D6100 of the G board;• +156V before and after TH6101;• +156V at capacitor C6106;• +155V before and after R6102.Please post back results / observations of the above once tried. A friendly reminder: voltage measurements by its very nature requires that the unit be plugged in and therefore LIVE! Exercise due care and caution.

it is model # 43UJ6300-UA and was bought this past September. I had some difficulty getting it to find the dvr when I first got it, but I eventually got it working. When a grand daughter recently visited, she left if in a state where I could see no English on the set. I put in a request on Google and received the web address for an lg site which, after a lot of button pushing, solved that problem. Now I can watch tv fine, but can't reach the dvr. I can tell that the dvr is still recording the previously selected programs, but can't watch them or set up anything new to record. … read more
