Might be the relay on the power board that stands up just behind the big transformer. I has a complete no power also, I shorted out the relay legs on the black one, it started to work again. I will probably replace it, since the problem started by the system shutting off randomly.

How to fix my flat screen t.v.?


Check all the AC input connections. As the power board is new, the TV should show standby light at least, when you switch it ON.

Check whether there is a line fuse inserted at AC path. Check whether there is a plug-fuse included inside the power plug.

My tv wont turn on and the light keeps blinking


I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buyand try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in thisphoto.6_8_2012_4_21_57_am.jpg6_8_2012_4_22_15_am.jpg

I Have am RCA RT2280 that has no power accept for the led on the power button, Any Ideas?


My RCA 2280 receiver went out on me one day. I thought I'd have to take it to the shop. But before I do that I'll check the fuse because I took it to the shop once before and the repair man said that it was the fuse, he replace it with a new one. So I thought that I would take a look inside first. I took the cover off and looked around and notice that the fuse looked loose. It was loose. I just push it all the way in, replace the cover, plugged it back up and it worked.
As far as the on and off problem goes (which happened to me too) the speaker wire coming from one of the speakers to the back of the receiver were crossed, over loading the system causing it to over heat resulting in it shutting off. I found that the wire was going from red to the gray instead of red to red and gray to gray. Once I rearranged the speaker wires I had no more problems and that was years ago. I haven't had anymore trouble sense. I've had the receiver maybe 12 years now.
Except for today with the Dish Network 20.0 IR 155681 remote control for the 722k HD/DVR. I tried everything in their book but I can't get it to control the RCA 2280 surround sound volume. Anybody gotta clue? I would surely appreciate it. Good Luck.

Kenwood KDC-138 Standby Question


Standby mode does not completely power down the unit it jsut does not draw as much power as when the unit is on. Also, depending on the unit, it might start back up faster in standby then from power off. You can select to have certain things displayed while in standby mode. Here is what can be selected for this unit:
Standby: displays CD loaded indicator, "STBY" indicator, and clock (when selected)
Hope this was helpful.

Lightning strike


Lightning hits do some nasty damage to electronics.
Alot of times that type of repair is part of an insurance claim. The insurance company requires estimates and will repair them up to the cost of replacement.

If you arent dealing with an insurance claim on this I'd still recommend a professional estimate.
Lightning damage sometimes is confined to the power supply and once repaired could be fine bit in my experience most items that take a nasty hit are a write off.

** Please re-comment if the suggestion did not work for you, there may be several other possibilities.
