Good Day;
This does have power supply board but if you see lights (green) the power supply CIRCUIT BOARD IS OKAY. Ifyou want to attempt to repair your self try this if NOT call An Authorized Service Center & have them give a written estimate B4, avg. cost $550.00:

This power supply runs all the time when the AC is applied. The use of the power supply creating Stand By Voltage supplies eliminates the need for a Stand-By transformer. The following explanation will describe the Turning ON and OFF of the projection television.
The Microprocessor I001 generates the ON-OFF control signal from pin (53). The logic states of this pin are High = On and Low = Off. When the set is turned On, the high from pin (53) is routed to the Relay Drivers Q003 and Q004. This turns on Q003 and it’s collector goes low which turns off Q004 and it’s collector goes High.
This On/Off from the Relay Drivers will perform the following :
Turns on the Shut Down “Power Shorted” detection circuit, Q917 and Q919.
Turns on the Relay S901 through Q914 providing AC to the Deflection Power Supply on the Power/Deflection PWB.
During Stand-By, some of the secondary voltages produced are turned off, except the STBY voltages after regulation. This could cause a potential problem with the Short Detection circuits for shutdown. To avoid accidental shut down, Q917 also controls the activity of Q919. During Stand-By, the output from the Microprocessor On/Off pin (53) is Low. This Low is inverted by Q003 and inverted again by Q004 and this Low is routed to the base of Q917 turning it Off. This turns off Q917 because it’s base is pulled Low through D927. This action turns off Q917. When Q917 is off, it doesn’t supply emitter voltage to the Emitter of Q919. The base of Q919 is connected to 3 Low Detection inputs from [PROTECT 1], (See the Sub Power Supply Shut Down Circuit explanation and diagram for further details).
PROTECT 1 monitors IC02, 3 & 4 on the Signal PWB. IC02 produces 5.5V, IC03 produces 3.3V, and IC04 produces 2.2V.
NOTE: PROTECT 1 will never go below 2.2 V, unless the 2.2V line is shorted.
NOTE: If the 5.5V or the 3.3V regulator OPENS, the set will not go into shut down, they must have a short to produce a shut down input on PROTECT 1.
The set will shut down after the Screens go excessively bright, but this is from the 115V over current sensor, not PROTECT 1.
When the power supply is in Stand By, the Short Detection circuit could activate. By turning off Q919, no accidental shut down operation can occur.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Sony Bravia KDL-55EX500 flashing green and yellow light, an won't turn on. Any suggestions?

you guys are going to love me. lol. i figured it out at least for mine. $ )
1.start by unplugging the tv and everything plugged into it(make sure the only thing plugged into the tv is the power cord).
2. next plug in the usb flash drive with the update or a compatible version of the firmware.

3. now while holding down the up arrow button on the tv remote, plug in the tv and keep holding the up arrow while pressing and holding the power button on the side on the tv until you see the light on the tv go from solid green to solid red and yellow flashing lights. once you see this just sit back and wait a few min for it to force the update and it should turn on when its done.

let me know if this works for you as well or if you need any clarification. also know that step three is a pain to do alone and must be all done within a short period of time preferably at the same time.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525 HDTV that suddenly wont turn on. Just has a green blinking light when you hit the power button. Any ideas?

I found this on another website, most likely it is your power supply capacitors.
  1. Press the "reset" button and hold for 10 seconds .... Does TV turn on and blinking green light turn to solid green.

  2. Unplug the TV from it's power source for various times, ranging between 5 minutes and 24 hours..... Does blinking green light continue upon plugging in the TV.

  3. Disconnect ALL devices from the TV; DVD, Tuner, Cable Box, unplug the TV for various duration times .... Does blinking green light continues upon plugging in the TV.

  4. Press Power and Menu buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  5. Press Power and Display buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  6. Insure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.

Diagnosis: If none of the above test resolve the issue, then the failure lies in one of the following:

  1. DM Module Capacitors have FAILED.
  2. DM Module is defective.
  3. EEPROM Board failure
  4. Power Supply failure.

LG 42 LCD no sound or picture

Did anyone find out the solution for this??????? I have the exact same problem with my LG 32 LCD. I only had it for a year and a half, and the green light blinks a few times and it shows no picture. Not even a red light when the tv is off. The same thing happened a couple weeks ago and by some miracle it started working again.

Good Day, texxastam;

Do this:

3. Plug in the TV. (the TV will turn itself on).
4. A blue "K" should now be showing on the TV screen, release the buttons.
5. Press and release the VOLUME DOWN & CHANNEL DOWN buttons simultaneously on the TV. (A blue service menu will appear on the screen).
6. Using the remote, press the DOWN SELECT button once. (The highlighted line should read INDUSTRY INT (+CAUSE) OFF
7. Using the remote, press VOLUME UP once (OFF changes to ON).
8. Press ENTER. After a few seconds the screen turns green and shows - Industry INIT success - at the top of the screen.
9. Unplug the AC cord for 10 seconds then plug back in.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
