Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Lightening blew out my 35" TV which is approx 11 years old. I replaced the fuse in the set and the power light clicks on when the set in plugged in. The on/off button does not work, it has to be unplugged to turn off. However, I get "cable 2" message on the picture tube which remains totally blank, no lines, no ant fight, no nothing. This makes me believe the tube is no longer good. Any suggestions? Thank you

    Dear Dan,



    Thank you so very much for your advice. Both my uncle and brother who are experienced with electronics (not tv's though) gave me the same advice but I was still apprehensive about letting my big tv go. Now I feel much better knowing that more problems would probably occur in the future. Now

    I just need to locate a safe disposal site. Thank you again. This site is awesome!!!!!

The tube is probably fine, but the internal electronics are messed up. With a set that old, and the fact that it took a lightning hit, I wouldn't suggest spending anything on it. Take whatever insurance money you get and put it toward a new set. Most shops will tell you that lightning hits are not good investments as there are often hidden problems that appear over time.

You may have the humidity extraction level set to HIGH. Try lowering the humidity extraction level to 35% or if you have an analog unit, turn the control knob to maximum. Also cleaning the air intake filter may help.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem and thanks for choosing FixYa.

HI:
This is a plasma unit and philips plasma's are nortorious for bad power supplys, your problem may very well be the power suppy in the television, it is possible you blew a low B+ fuse on the power supply. There is also a issue with the Y-sustain board failing in this model, If you open the back and looking at the unit from the rear the y board is on the left side of the unit and the PS is in the center. disconnect the Y-sustain power plug from the power supply and turn on the unit if the unit stays on with no red light then the y board is bad. it does the same then replace the Power Supply.

No power after lightening storm. blew out dvr upstairs also. this is one of the 10 old combo tv/direct tv wide screens.


several things could have been damaged but the low voltage power supply has a fuse in it which probably blew. you will need to remove both back covers and the right side cover the are 2 screws in the rear on the metal plate where the lexmark factory tag is you will need to remove these. the low voltage is where you put the power cord pullthis out and check the fuse with a mutitester.

TV will not turn on when power button is pushed.


check the main fuse in the tv. test it with a multimeter, not visually. if its the thermistor that blew the fuse, it is very difficult to see the break in the wire. replace if blown. if unit blown fuse again withing a couple of weeks replace the thermistor in the degausing circuit. good luck.
