Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

When switched on, the power light flashes on and off on the front of the TV but no picture. We have the back part of the panel off and there are no puffed capacitors. Everything looks good except some goop around some of the capacitors. Is it normal to have goop that looks like its flowing out of the caps? Is it a glue that helps it seat better? I have access to a multi-meter and have the checked the output of some of the connectors. Anything to suggest?



Answers :

It is not normal to have goo coming from the cap. Usually a cap will pop and you'll have the top or bottom puff out. Sometimes a cap will explode and you'll have a little more of a mess. So if it looks like goo is coming out if it then that is probably the case. Also compare it to other components on other boards. Sometimes a paste is used to connect components. Do you see this same stuff on other caps or other components? The paste is usually grayish in color.

We have a 32 inch Phillips LCD HGTV that my daughter drew stars on with a ballpoint pen! They dont look like they are deep by any means.

I have a Nesa car DVD system. Has Nesa roof screen, dual channel wireless headphone, a Turbo 1 Pac line drive and a broken 2 channel a/v controller box that has no name. It is black with 4 audio inputs and 2 video inputs and a broken slot to the monitor. All the inputs are on the long side. The system was put in 2003. No one here can find it nor repair it. I have looked on the internet with no luck. My autistic son needs it. Can you help?


Since you have a Turbo 1 Pac line drive it means that the AV controller is used only for the video. Since you have just one source you could just bypass it and connect the monitor directly. But, without more details, as in model number of the monitor ... Flat Panel Televisions
