Power on off switch not working

I just replaced the main module on my set, and now as soon as I plug it in, it comes on I cannot crontrol the system from the power on switch, every other option seems to work. I can control the sound up and down, I can change channels, this is from remote or from front key pad. any suggestions as to what would cause this? thanks in advance Ron

Re: power on off switch not working

Do not operate the set anymore, before taking the following steps, or damage to the HOT, electrolytics or zener diodes may occur. - see if there are 2 small electrolytic capacitors in the primary part of the power supply, could be C909, C910, C911 or something. The values are usually 47u 25V and 10u 50V. Especially the 47u which is in the base drive of the switching transistor causes over-voltage conditions. They both should be replaced. - there should be a 2SC2335, BUV46, BUT56 or BUT11A in the +105V line on the secundary side of the power supply. This is probably shorted thus causing no power-off. Replace it along with the transistor driving it (2SA1013 probably). If the above does not apply to your TV, you're on your own for now, and you may actually be having a microcontroller faillure...

Why won't my Phillips TV turn on at the front power switch?

There are a series power supply boards that provide system voltages throughout the set. These voltages are generated as soon as the set is plugged in. Pressing the power button in front activates a relay that, when things are working, applies those voltages where they're needed. But, if a voltage or voltages are not available the system will not start. This could easily cost several hundred dollars to fix.

Automatically switch off

If the set switch off automatically, soon after switch on, it indicates a fault with its main board. If it switches off after some time of working, indicates, a loose or any solder defects with its main board or power supply regulator section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy. Pull up older posts there.

TV stopped working samsung model UA32D5000PM

Check and replace its main system control memory IC. Before replacing it, just make a hard reset to this set. Unplug the TV from AC mains wall outlet, and re-plug it back after 1 minute or so. This must make the set a hard reset.

Rca mm36100 power problem

Try a hard reset to this set first. To make it hard reset, unplug it from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 20 minutes or so. If this do not help you, the main system memory IC has to be replaced. This is not a costly part, but replacing it is a skilled work.

I replaced the color wheel on my HLP6163, it was broken. The lamp would come on for a second before I replaced the color wheel and now it wont come on at all. Nothing. I hear it start and the lamp and...

Check two things:

First: when you replaced the color wheel examine the orange flat ribbon cable that plugs into it. It is very easy to put it in backwards. contacts on it should face rear of set--this will if placed wrong cause No lamp.

Second: make sure little blue lever switch is engaged(you cannot power set up with back off as the switch prevents set from working if lever is not engaged.

I am here if you need help, I am in California.

Tv will not turn on


If you have no indication of power(no lights,no clicks) the main fuse is a good place to start but if it is blown and is black in color you will have a shorted component ahead in the circuit and if you replace the fuse it will turn on as soon as you plug the set in.

If that does not work then check the transformer in the TV if it is not burnt. Replace if burnt.

Zenith 27 TV - screen jumps and suddenly turns off.

Sounds like you have a vertical failure, and is causing the power supply to shut down. A repair person can probably repair this main board in this set but it will cost more in time and labor to repair. So the right thing to do is replace the entire module. This Zenith was designed to replace the boards completely to shorten down time as well as labor. The board this set needs is a 9-02107 module, and is avail from for 52.44 + shipping. I dont think you should attemp to do this repair by yourself if you have no electronics training or tv training. This is just so you know what you need and get an idea on what this will cost you to repair. Good Luck
