Having problems with your Projection Televisions ?

TV has worked just great since purchased in 04. Sat down this morning, grabbed the remote and nothing happened. I replaced the batteries in the remote, tried it again and nothing. I tried the manual power button on the front of the TV and still nothing. I tested the power outlet and it works fine. As I plug the TV in, I hear a soft click as if it is trying to power on but still nothing happens. I pushed the reset and it makes a soft click but still no picture or sound. Could you possibly help

Hi. This is an all too often occurrence. The TV's manufactured in the earlt to mid 1990s relied on an inferior set of capacitors in the power supply and mainboard components. They should have lasted about 25 to 30 years, but most are only lasting 5 or 6. The cheap capacitors pop, like a small balloon, or an overheated radiator, the capacitors contain an electrolyte gel, and this gel swells when induced with a charge. The cheap capacitors can split down the sides, boil over, or even pop the top off of them. If you look at the circuitry, you will see them standing up like small buttons, most with 3 wires coming out of the bouuton of them. Look to see if they have exploded like a battery, if, not, then your entire power supply is likely at fault.

I have a Sony Bravia KDL-40S4100. I turn it on and I can hear the solenoid click, the green light is on and I get a faint blue illumination. I do not get a picture or sound... or any response from the remote except for on/off. I tried unplugging it until I heard a click (I assume all the caps were discharged at this time) and tried again, still nothing but a green light and faint illumination. Any idea what I am dealing with... besides frustration?

Our RCA 27 inch TV (F27227EM), purchased on 1992, is hooked up to our DirecTV DVR Plus box. A simple click of the "ON" button on the DirecTV remote has always turned on both the DirecTV box and the television simultaneously. Yesterday, the TV stopped coming on even though the DirecTV box still powers up. No sound or picture on the TV. If I get my ear close to the TV I can hear a very faint click as though it is trying to turn on, followed a few seconds later by the same faint click as if it'

Vpw 425 viewsonic, have owned this Plasma, for several years, has always operated fine. Today it won't turn on. Main power switch is on. Standby switch is red. When I push the standby power button, it changes from red to green, I hear a click, then within 2-3 seconds the standby light turns back to red. I removed the back panel and tried to start again, after several tries there is a red indicator light (inside the panel) labeled "main power" that comes on and stays on.

Samsung PN50B450B1DXZA will not power up. When I try to power it on, it makes a clicking sound and then nothing for 10-15 seconds and another clicking sound. The Red LED on the front flashes when it clicks but nothing ever appears on the screen. I removed the back of the TV and inspected Capacitors but do not see any that look to be bulging. When I try to power it on with the back off, I see a green light quickly flash on a logic board just below the power supply board. Are these clues helpful
