    Check wire socket P101 on the front Control board ( Where power led is) that plug shoul have +3.3V on both Pins 1 & 2 when using pin 3 as ground. If that supply is good check Diode D103 and Q102 both also on that same board

  • Carl Peters Feb 19, 2012

    thank you i will check,.

  • Carl Peters Feb 20, 2012

    i have tryed the voltage check where the led light is, nothing is thereand all diodes check out good,.,so what do you think , the main board is bad,.

  • Carl Peters Feb 20, 2012

    ok i will do that but as i remember there wasn't and voltage like that, and if it be the power supply where is the problem, everything seems fime,.

  • Carl Peters Feb 21, 2012

    well i did as you asked and there is no power there coming or going so i guess it is the main board, thanks you for your help, now i have to see where i can get a board cheap,.

  • Carl Peters Feb 21, 2012

    does anyone know where i can gety a diagram of the power board so i can repair it, thanks,.

  • Carl Peters Feb 25, 2012

    hi people i thank you all for your help, the problem was on the power board, a diod was the problem, thanks again,.

Need the actual model number from the set. Also does the power light come on or blink? If it blinks let me know how many times its blinking and I will assist with the issue.

    It has to be the power supply board, or it could be the main but the main would be very unlikely. How have you verified that the power board is good? Was it replaced with a known good one? If so then it would have to be the main board causing the issue or the front keyboard. Remote control doesnt work but do the buttons on the set themselves have any effect??

    ok check wire plug P9702 for the +5V check it on the main board and also the power boards feed. If the voltage is on the power side and also the main side then the main board is bad. If not it has to be the power board.

    It would be the power board if there is no voltages on that plug from the power board going to the main.

The fuse is either open or it will have continuity do you have any standby voltages

SOURCE: Westinghouse LTV-32w6 power light on, no video, no sound

One thing is to make sure the inverter board is unplugged when testing the voltages. A shorted inverter will shut down the power supply if the fuse dosen't blow first. There are fuses that don't look like fuses so they can be missed. The next thing would be to look for a connector from the main to power supply and see if there is a pin labeled power on or p.on or similar. The main board should turn this line high(5V) when you push the power button. If not you probably have a bad main board. Unless you can find good used boards they are both expensive. Around $200 for PS and $300 for main.

You will have to isolate the main board and Inverters.
Unplug the inverters and turn on the set.
If it "turns on" then try re-connecting each inverter seperately to see if only one is causing the problem.

Have you checked whether mains power reaches the power board? Check it first. If yes, the power board you purchased newly should be checked.

No power on Hatchi p42h401 allready replaced power supply

IF you got a good board and a lot of replacement boards aren't good the only other thing that would make the set dead is if you have a bad main board, if your able to pull the back off and test the either 3.5 or 5 volt standby voltage if its ok then look at the PSON voltage, it should be at a half volt and go to about 3.5 when the power button is pushed..if you don't have standby you have a bad power board yet, if you have standby but no PSON the main board is bad, if you have PSON its back to the PS as being bad...Good luck!!

Zenith z50pg10 its dead no click, no led blink nothing !

Zenith Flat panel TVs usually only have two boards in them Plasmas have a few more, doing a visual inspection of the power supply capacitors usually reveals swollen or bulging capacitors.
If the capacitors look good, voltage checks would be needed to isolate the problem to either the main board or power supply. Check for 5 volts to the IR board (& or keyboard) , if five volts is present suspect the main board
If this TV has voltages from power supply , suspect the Z, X and buffers

HP D7-1245DX Motherboard part number 506124-001 Power supply went bad, was running fine off of battery until battery went dead. Replaced power supply with good HP 463958-001 power supply, but it will...

I would first double-check the "known good" power supply. If there is something bad wrong with the MB, it could have blown the fuse in the power supply. I have seen very few fuses on motherboards, they are normally in the power supply. If the power supply checks out OK, then double check the connectors between the power supply and the MB.

Hello George, hi it seem your TV is on standby mode, this happens when the power supply board detects a short, overload or any part on both main and power supply board gone bad. This needs to be checked properly by a highly skilled tech people. The problem could be the main board or the power supply board. we usually check first the main board, for any bad parts, like loose screws/wiring, bulging capacitors, overheating ICs, or water marks. If a OK, we then check the power supply board, well usually this is the culprit, bulging capacitors, or overheating regulator. or you could replace the entire power supply board. check for its availability online or on your dealer, ask also for service if the charge is reasonable.

Dead mother board

The problem with power surges, or low power (brownouts) causing excessive current draw can cause multiple problems to motherboards. Even if you were to pinpoint and repair one problem that appeared to fix the fault, several other components on the board may have been weakened, and prone to fail.

If you are certain that the power supply is 100% ok, then replace the MB.

The best power protection is to use a UPS.

Remove the power supply cable to Y Main board, check Vs on power supply board when you turn on tv.
1. If you have normal Vs, replace the Y Main board. If still not work, replace the Logic board.
2. If you don't have normal Vs when you try to turn on your tv, just replace the Power Supply board.
