I would have an electrician check to see if you have a grounding issue. Especially at the outlet that you have the power strip supply plugged in, Check to see what kind of your circuit panel is going to trip for electrical arc or electrical short. Newer panels should have both. Older just for electrical short. Have your electrician make sure your wiring is entirely copper, if it isn't and it's aluminum. Have him make sure the outlets are aluminum rated, and not designed for copper. Defintely check grounding. Good Luck

Power board and back lights led tv


BL Inverter board fault. It's not working [oscillating]. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

Tip

TV led back-light repair


Tv using power supply unit EAY62810301.

No back-light/sound ok.

No dc voltage measured at P801 led plug.
New board did not fix.
Remove display panel.
With face up, panel will hinge up. (after removing all trim parts) Place folded towels beneath, to prevent strain on tcon ribbon.
Fold other screens up and over on top of display to keep them in right order. Including white background reflector.
Check each series led string with 2*9V batteries and series resistor, minding marked polarity.
Circuit consists of 3 strips of 7 leds all in series.
One bad led disables all .
Check each led of bad string. I used 18V and 1K ohm.
Replace strip or jumper (short) bad led. I just jumpered the bad one that was on edge of panel. (first in string).

Why wont my sharp lcd LC-32D44U turn on?


Well, there could a be few issues. First thing is to verify the breaker that gives power to that wall has not tripped off in the home's break power panel. If it is not tripped then verify the wall outlet that the TV is plugged into has a reset button, like a GFI (ground fault interrupt) If it does then verify that it has not tripped. If the GFI on the wall plug is tripped simply push the reset button back in and then try plugging in your TV power plug again. Then if that checks out or does not have a GFI outlet, verify that the power plug going into the back of the TV is not loose. Unplug and replug power plug that plugs into the back of the TV in and verify it is securely connected. Lastly, the power supply in the TV might have gone out.

I have a 42inch vizio and it is only 7 months old. today it will not turn on. it is plugged into a power protect strip cord, the power at my house did blink off for halk a second this morning.


Is anything else working that is plugged into the power strip? There is usually a breaker on the power strip (little button on the side) that may have been tripped. The other thing to check is try powering TV on using the TV power button and not the remote control.

We had a thunderstorm with lightening in the area. The LG was plugged in at the time, but NOT turned on. after the storm, the tv will not turn on. the little green button turns from red to green...


As an electrician, when someone loses more than 1 item of electronics in a day, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike, accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360. Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house protection, or per-circuit protection at
the breaker box, where a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.
The converter box may be replaced by DirecTV, you'd have to contact their customer
service at http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/content/customerservice
If desperate, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

I purchased a SUPRA 32 LED TV FULL HD Model No SLED32OT9001R from UAE 3 months back and from the last few days TV is not working even the power led at the front pannel doesnt shows power.


Be sure the power cord is plugged in to the a/c outlet fully. Take a table lamp and plug in the same outlet to verify power is good. If no power, check for circuit breaker tripped in main breaker box.
If problem seems to stay with tv, I would contact seller. You should have at least nine months of warranty left.

My HP HDTV trips my circuit brakers


1) Try with a different surge protector. The oine you're using could have a short-circuit
2) Try without a surge suppressor, at least for a day
3) Does the circuit breaker trip when something else starts running? Your microwave, fridge, dishwasher, etc.?

4) Check the user's manual of your TV, under SPECIFICATIONS. Check for "POWER REQUIREMENTS". If the power requirements listed is greater than 15 Amps or 1,700 Watts (assuming you live in the USA and your household is 110-120V), then the circuit breaker will almost always be triggered by the TV. Most circuit breakers inside a house are 15 Amps.

The only option you have is to replace the circuit breaker for one that has more Amps, but doing so on your own without having and electrican check if the wiring will hold the extra load is extremely unadvaisable. You may end up with an electric fire in your hands.
