  5. Check the optical flexible cable socket.
  • Optics spool laterally tilted or irregular jump when the engine turn on.
  1. Check the resistor on 102 block (In IC Servo Master Control area = CXD 3098 : 470-8pin,102-8pin).
  2. Check the resistor under IC Servo Master Control.
  3. If you have SCPH - 3000 series, check the IC Driver (BA 5815).
  4. If you have SCPH - 5000 series, check the IC Driver (LA 6508).

  1. Check the Optic Laser Diode.
  2. Check the Optic Laser Diode with Voltmeter : V3 (CD=1080 to 1260, & DVD=800 to 1300), V4 (CD=850 to 900, & DVD=1200 to 1400), V5 (CD=1200, & DVD=1400), V7 (CD=1200, & DVD=1100 to 1400), V9 (CD=1200 to 1400, & DVD=1200 to 1400).
  • Optics Lights not lit (Lens not light).
  1. Check the flexible cable.
  2. Check the optics spull.
  3. Check the SP 3727 IC.
  4. Check the Amp transistor ( in IC SP 3727 socket board), Upper for CD & under for DVD.
  5. Check the IC 7805 (IC Regulator).
  • Excellent optics but won't to read.
  1. Check the mecanic gear.
  2. If you have SCPH - 3000 series, check the IC Driver (BA 5815).
  3. If you have SCPH - 5000 series, check the IC Driver (LA 6508).
  4. Check the ModChip.
  5. Check the IC SP 3727.
  6. Check the resistor (in 220 block), between IC Servo Master Control & IC Interface (CXD 9611 BR).
  7. Check the transistor (in socket optics= pin 6).

i have sony J21mn11. problem not power on only red lit led only.i check all the components on the power supply area and horiz. output D1878 all are good. there is power IC STR S6707 on power supply area. i suspect might cause the problem. could you pls help me.


If you have a digital tester or analog try to check the voltage reading from the power supply if high or low or no supply.Check first following voltage location and section. * Check the AC voltage from ac cord to fuse and before the bridge type diode. * Check the DC voltage after the bridge type diode.if normal voltage. * Then check the voltage into the filter capacitor to regulator ic.the power ic.If theres a input voltage in the power ic,check the output voltage going to harizontal output.If no output the problem is you power output.You need to replace it.

i plug in my tv with a 125v cable my tv and nothing happens.


Good day!Follow this D.I.Y procedures to find the exact problem of your TV.
  1. Remove the back cover of your TV.
  2. After that,find the power supply board.
  3. If you already found the power supply,plug-in your TV and power it ON.Check the input voltage of it,using multimeter (AC range).If the power supply have no input voltage the problem could be the power cord.Replace it.
  4. If the power supply have the input voltage,try to test the output voltage if have 5vdc for the system and logic supply,12vdc for the sounds and 24vdc for the back-light inverter.Use your multimeter tester (DC range) to test that.
  5. If the power supply have a voltage outputs such as 5vdc,12vdc and 24vdc and the problem is still there.The problem could be the main board.Replace it with the same type and model # because the main board is no very difficult to fix and its very sensitive.
  6. If the power supply have no output voltage or the voltage is too low,just ignore the step # 5 because the problem is not on the main board,its on the power supply board.
Check the following to fix the power supply board:
  • Fuse: Check the fuse if it is busted or blown.
  • Power transistor (regulator): Check the regulator if it is shorted or leak.
  • Resistor: Check the resistors specially the one that have a low resistance that near the power regulator.
  • Capacitor: Also check the capacitors if it is leak or bulging top.
NOTE: If you found any defective parts or components that mention above replace it with the same value,type and ratings.

I hope this solution will be helpful.Thank you and good luck.

MY RCA 27" WILL NOT TURN ON, HAVE POWER TO THE FUSE, THE FUSE IS GOOD ALSO BUT THE DEGAUSS RELAY DOES NOT CLICK AND NO OTHER CLICKS ARE HEARD EITHER, WHAT COULD BE WRONG?


you need to check the voltage output of your power supply section.This power supply supply is a switching type power supply.there is a chopper transformer in there.its supply is a dc voltage unlike any other transformer which is AC supplied on the primary..First step.
1.Using a multitester measure the primary supply it is a DC voltage around 220v - 110 VDC
2.Measure the secondary output.The out put is AC voltage the supply for the B+ going to plyback is 115vdc the second output is 12v run through a regulator and the regulator lower the voltage to 5vdc.this 5vdc supplies the system IC and the jungle IC.this ic process the switching of the plyback transformer and the plyback transformers output supplies the voltage of the whole system including your relay in the degaussing section....once the plyback is activated the tv will now turn on...

good luck!Hope i helped you..

please rate my help..god bless!
