It's not a thermostat, it's most likely a bad electrolytic capacitor. What happens is a weld
inside the capacitor breaks and causes it to open circuit. When you heat it up, the
connection is made again until it cools and opens again.
In the LTN1765, the bad part was capacitor C21 near IC23 in the upper center of the board;
it's a 10 microfarad 16 volt surface mount electrolytic capacitor. I suspect the 1565 has
a similar board but the part ID may be different. Probably they had a bad run of these parts
since the failure seems to happen in all these TVs.
If you're experienced at electronic soldering it's not too tough to replace the part - use a
small iron. You could probably replace it with a radial electrolytic or tantalum with the
same rating - 10 microfarads and anything from 16-35 volts should be fine, if it fits. The part
costs less than $2.

There should be some kind of thermostat inside of the set that goes bad, but I could never find it and I was told you would have to replace the whole main board which now a days cost more than the whole tv itself.

I have a Mitsubishi tv and think the "lamp" has went out. I have it out of the tv. Can it be checked to see if it is good by checking continuity?

The lamp from inside your Mitsubishi TV can be tested, but not with a standard multimeter or anything like that. There is a specialized piece of equipment that some repair centers will have. I recommend calling around your area to find one a shop that has lamp testing equipment.

No Video, No Sound

Hello, This might be a board with a loose connection or a faulty capacitor on the power board or one of the immediate circuits attached to the power supply board. I would suggest that you have this serviced by a qualified TV Technician. However if you wish to do this yourself, you need the following equipment: 1) Multimeter (to measure the voltages; AC and DC on the various test points on the boards) 2) Oscilloscope (to measure the startup and shutdown circuit ramp voltages) 3) Isolation Transformer (to isolate the Tv from the AC circuit that the test equipment is on) 4) Service manual or schematic diagram (to show where the test points are and what signals and voltages to expect) 5) Signal generator (to generate reference signals for servicing the TV) Now if you know how to use these pieces of equipment your are ready to start, if not again I would advise you to have the set checked by a qualified TV repair technician. I hope this helps Thank you, Shuttle83

I got a Maxent 42" Plazma Tv MX-42HPM20 with out the remote

Hey Z,

I believe the model # is RC-278 and is supposed to be the remote that comes with the TV. FYI - This TV operates best as a "Stand-alone" TV. As in the remote itself is not designed to work like a "Universal" remote and you may have issues in the future trying to hook up various other types of equipment (ie. DVD, Tuner, etc..)

Hope this helps!! Happy Holidays..

Picture Flashing

I have a similar problem but my picture flashes black and white and the sound goes at the same. Also sometimes it will flash pink and blue. I've read elsewhere that the issue is a known problem with compatability between Samsung tv's and sky boxes. Apparently the box needs to be replaced but I'm unsure what type of box. I've read perhaps a PACE sky box could fix the problem. I think the best option would be to contact Samsung - that's what I'm going to do.

Power light blinks

I found a solution, Heat. When the set is on and heats up it stays on, but once off for the night it gets cold and can't start, try using a hair dryer on full blast and put the heat around the back top vent like structure and wait for the light to stop blinking, this only takes about 2 min or so

Samsung LCD TV shimmer problem

Are you sure this is not an LCD screen door effect, It is a normal thing for this to happen to an LCD TV set. They are not made to be watch too close or you will magnafy this normal effect with the screen. If you have a problem with a new set, dont waist any time and get it service right away as it will cost you a small fortune in the future to have it serviced. Good Luck
