Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I have an LG 42PC3D Plasma set. The set would not turn on so I did some trouble shooting and found and replaced all the capacitors on the power board. Some were bulging so I decided to change all of them. I also replaced the shorted IPM (the large chip under the heat sink) and related fuse on the YSUS board. I now have a working set again. The problem I am having is the much typed about "red sparkles" on the left side of the screen when a dark background is present. I have read many posts abo

It started with the convergence going haywire, not fixed by restoring factory default or advanced adjusting of convergence. I turned the set off and unplugged it. The next morning it would not come on - only the green light flashing. Coincidentally (???) the cable box also would not even power on - had to be replaced. I researched and found the problem with the green light (DM board kit available with 7 capacitors and 2 fuses plus instructions). But, am I going to have to replace the convergenc

You will have to replace it. The reason the fuse is blowing can also be to X-sus board as the two sustain boards are capable of frying each other. They cost you about 170$ together. If you can get me the part numbers off the boards, along with any re ... Flat Panel Televisions

After reading several forums when my LG 42PC3D died, I went in thinking I had the answer. It would turn on, but then off immediately. The Y-sus board had a blown fuse. I didn't want to risk frying anything else, so I replaced the board rather than just replacing the fuse. When I disconnected the board, it would turn on and stay on. Now, with the new board, it powers up as soon as I plug it in (doesn't actually turn on, just powers up) but won't do anything. The screen is backlit with just

Well the same thing happen again but this time one of the fuses on the board has blown. I replaced the fuse and as soon as I plugged in the power cord it blew. I did this twice.

Video boards Had to replace the power board. Television now powers on, but there is ghosting of images and distorted color. I have tried to adjust the picture settings to no avail.

I have a Samsung PS50Q97HD plasma TV that keeps blowing new boards and I don't know why. It came to me with a faulty YSUS that had damaged the VS supply section in the PSU board. I fixed the PSU and fuse and have good VS voltage now. I replaced the YSUS main. I powerd the TV and the upper YDRIVE (Yscan buffer) board chips when pop. I put this down to it getting damaged unseen when the YSUS went faulty. I replaced the YDRIVE upper with new and then the lower board went faulty too (holes blew in t

I am not sure what fuse to put in it, when I got it it had a 500 MA Ceramic 5x 20 250v Fuse blown; but when I replace it with the same it automatically pops. The board of the power supply has written on it that at F1 should be a 8.0 AH/250V Fuse. What fuse is it supposed to have, so I can replace it? Thank you Corey


On the body of the fuse or on the circuit board there will be a suffix T or F next to the value.T stands for Time delay or slowblow. If its marked F it means fast acting fuse.Now after replacing the correct fuse if it still pops you have ... Flat Panel Televisions

My TV is showing convergence symptoms: the screen looks like 3D effects and as if someone is pusing in the middle of the screen. I've replaced my STK's, 2 pico fuses on the G board, and tested each convergence resistor along with the pico fuses on the D board--albeit they were still soldered in place. I desoldered two pico fuses and one resistor to test them in said manner, but they checked out fine. I've gone over every square millimeter around the soldered area of each STK with a microsco

Hi I have a power problem, with my Sony RDR-HX717 DVD Recorder. I have no power at all in the display or anywhere else in my recorder. I suspect it could be the fuse, on the power supply board, which is a Newton Power NPS-51AP. The fuse is a T4AH-250V. My question is - what is the best way to replace this fuse, as it is in a closed fuse socket, which is not easy to open? Thx for any help. Fritz Diedrichsen

How do I find the power board in a 1997 big screen Sony TV to check the fuse? How do I check the fuse? I live in a house built in the 1890's, and last year there were 2 different tornados ,within 2 weeks of each other, that blew over trees on top of my power line twice in 1 month. My TV hasn't turned on since then. Is it the fuse I need to be checking? Should I replace the power cord, maybe just the cord is fried?

M220va wont turn on when plugged in and has a small white led light on the bottom right of the front panel that slowly flashes on and off. i've heard this light will come on when there is any problem with any of the boards, kind of like a safty shut off indicator. this makes it hard to diagnose since you cant look at any of the symptomes. sooo... i was wondering if there were any "common problems" with this model that might most likely need to be replaced (power board? main board?) fuse se

I have a big screen Mitsubishi TV WS-55859. The green light on the front was blinking and the set wouldn't turn on. I read on the internet to replace the capacitors on the dm board. I did that and the set turned on but after awhile it tuned back off and the green light started flashing again and the set wouldn't turn on. If I unplug it and let it sit for awhile and then plug it in, it will flash green for awhile and then I can turn it back on. It stays on for about 5 minutes and then shuts down
