Answers :

I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have tobuy and try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.4_6_2012_6_41_35_pm.jpg

Look at power supply board inside the set for caps like these with the tops puffed up.

Hitachi 55PMA550 I have a Hitachi 55PMA550 monitor linked to a skybox. The Hitachi goes on into standby mode on power up, I then use remote to start the Hitachi, the standby light goes green (start mode) & picture comes on in 3-4 seconds mormally. But now after 1 second (without picture) Hitachi goes back into standby mode of red light. I can hear sky tv sound (Hitachi linked thru sky to sound) and checked all cable connections, they are ok. Any advice would be most appreciated, thanks.

I picked up a Sony KF-60WE610 rear projection tv and when I got it home and plugged it in it would not turn on. I later noticed that the power cord was badly damaged in an area with exposed wires.

My research has led me to believe that either the SC, SU or SD boards are faulty.. If not one of them then a combination of all of the could be a fault. Thinking that it was the SC at fault, I w

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.

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.

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.
