DPS-336AP Replacement Did the new DPS-336A resolve your problem? I wanted to know as I am considering ordering one since the one I have looks good and there is not any information on what actually needs to be fixed on the board. Thanks, Brad

    Thanks for the quick response!! I have the old board out and I am ready to replace it with a new one but I just need to take the risk and order the new one. It's too bad there is not a newer board available or a replacement board available as I am some what skeptical about putting in the exact same board with a track record of failing. The other odd thing is how the current board does not show signs of obvious failure. It would be nice if they would even share with the public what part of the board is failing so we could address it specifically rather than ordering a new board. It would reduce the cost invovled for the repair that is for sure. I'll definitely keep you updated with my results.

    I believe my power supply is also bad. I can hear a squeal from it when the unit is powered on. Symptoms are red and green dots appearing randomly around the menu items. Did either of you notice a microchip on the backside of the power supply with 2 legs cross soldered. It just didn't seem right to me. Would love to find a schematic.....

I was going to post later this week but I have been running perfect, without any problems at all for over 6 days now! I just went in and replaced the DSP-336AP. I took digital photo's once I pulled the back off to be sure all connectors went back on and I was careful not to touch any other wiring. You will need to also pull of the power cable connector in order to pull off the power supply cover as well as it slides out and the power connect thing blocks it. I did see that although the revision of the DPS-336AP was exactly the same as the newly purchased one, the serial number of the one I purchased on eBay was a few hundred newer or higher. I was hoping that it was a new rev and hoped that Westinghouse fixed the problem. Nonetheless, all is working perfectly once again. I paid about $150 for that DPS-336AP on eBay and there were only two sellers on eBay offering this board. Good luck and please take the time to update me as well. I suspect W sold a few thousand of these TV's and you and I will be the only ones who fixed them ourselves. Anyway, good luck to you!!!!!!!

I need the wiring diagrams for the DPS-270 and DPS-175 time base correctors

The Broadcast Store sells the Service Manual for $99
Too much, agreed.
I have one too, and would consider buying and copying to split the cost.
Might be slightly awkward to copy.
Most DPS documentation was very thorough.

A child threw something at our sony bravia tv. now when we turn it on it looks cracked and no picture.

Most likely the lcd panel is damaged. You can consider repair but the panel is very expensive. You may want to consider replacement. Unfortunately that is the downside to these tv's, a tube tv can't withstand a little more abuse then the screens of lcd and plasma televisions. If you need any further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,

Picture turns off after 1 second. Power supply appears to on.

morrfl, All lcd tv's (plasma & fluorescent lamp backlighted) have "smart" power supplys (ac line to dc) that are called "switch-mode-power-supplys" that can detect FAULTS with other circuits or with themselves and will go into what is known as SHUTDOWN-MODE when a FAULT CONDITION is detected. The SMPS does this to protect against having a catastrophic nonrecoverable failure! e.g. sparks, smoke, fire. There are many reasons that LCD tv's go into shutdown! However, your set is a viable candidate for repair. When you stated "picture turns off after 1 second" means it still has the capability of displaying information on the LCD panel! But don't do anything just yet about fixing it. Check the availibility of a replacement SMPS number DPS-336AP. The drop-in SMPS could have same problem as the current one because nobody has made the determination of the ROOT CAUSE of failure for this SMPS. All they know is that they fail!! You will need to read all the posts here on fixya and elsewhere to maybe???? find out ROOT CAUSE and exactly what component(s) fail and more importantly WHY! It is now 2009 and these LVM-37W1 units have been failing by the hundreds because of SMPS failures since 2007 or 8 ! Yet nobody has investigated to COMPONENT LEVEL why the SMPS fails. Well, all I can say is good luck guy. If you do manage to get it up and running again I would certainly like to hear back from you. try me at or here on fixya. I'm 12fixlouie. Hope this was of some use! If yes please rate on fixya.

Sharp lc-26d40u No picture

I have a Sharp Aquos LC-40E77UN with the same issue, and have tracked down a single burned capacitor at C7816 on the power supply board, and am looking for info on the capacitor in order to replace it. (Power supply: RDENCA354WJQZ / Delta DPS 208BPA). - Any help with a schematic would be appreciated!)
Since you say the picture went out, it is possible that you might have the same problem, Bad/failed/leaking capacitors are, unfortunately, quite common in electronics. There are volumes of info available on the subject.
Replacement power boards can also be purchased. One for my TV runs about $60 to $120 depending on used or new. Since I was able to see a good picture on mine for a few seconds, despite the burnt out capacitor, I'm opting to try and find/replace the cap myself (using the proper safety procedures), or at worst, have a repair done to the power supply.
Backlights should typically last around 60,000 hours.

I will pay for the fix for the DPS-336AP PS Board

At board level, replacement of power supply is not a big work. But the main is what caused problem:
- by itself (regarding to quality and design of PS)
- by loads at its output broken.
Therefore, we should check and fix the loads causing problem for PS unit before proceeding to replace PS.
