    Electec1, Where can I find the example of the front board?   Thank You

  • trouble266 Nov 10, 2008

    Electech, I can hear a clicking sound around the area of the power supply when the tv turns off.

  • trouble266 Nov 10, 2008

    Thanks for your suggestions, but unfortunately I don't know what the vertical IC, etc. are.
    Guess this is above my technical capabilities. 
    Thanks again for your help.

    I have 2 (yes two) of the 27 RF50 TV's, and neither has a picture. Both have horizontal lines moving accross the screen. The authorized repair shop wants $50.00 to look, then plus parts and labor.

    The TV sets should have lasted longer.

Ok , first you will need to check the controls panel on the front board, take it out of there and make sure that the buttons are not being pushed on and check the sensor for a short or open also the contact switches are not making continuity(short) then also unplug the controls panel from the main board
and please give me a fixya rating so that i may continue to help you with this problem( anything other than a fixya rating hurts our rating as a fixya expert) that is if you belive that my help will be beneficial to you, thanks

    i can show you an example of the front control board, and how one plugs into the main board , the rest will be you looking to make sure the front control board is not doing some things and of a couple of tests on it with the meter , also you will need to give a fixya rating so i can continue to help , and if you are not happy with my help you can always change it , and that rating also hurts our score , sorry but thats how fixyas doing the rating , so otherwise i will be glad to continue to help you find the cause of the problem as long as you want , thanks


  • jason Nov 10, 2008

    can you change the rating you gave me? this is a main board

  • jason Nov 10, 2008

    front printed control panel board( contact buttons and sensor)

    how it plugs into the main board

  • jason Nov 10, 2008

    ok then you probably have to replace the vertical IC , but you need to check resistor value in the power circuit and vertical section , also check electrolytic capacitors in the circuits

    check that out then let me know what you get from testing those ,but definately check capacitors and resistors for right now

Yes the ATC221 uses the 259296 flyback. If audio works and the on screen menu also comes up but no video its most likely a vertical deflection issue. I would check the vertical IC for signs of bad solder.

When I power up, 5 seconds later this back projector TV turns itself off

t does sound like a bulb problem, either its over heating and shutting off to protect itself, or its already shot. Give a TV repair shop a call and see if they can give you an approximate price, then decide to ditch or repair it.

Had a severe thunderstorm yesterday (7/23/08). Lightening hit the transformer, all power was out for 6 hours. 3 Televisions. 1, hooked up to modem works fine, 1 hooked up to cable reciever only gets static...

Upon researching various websites regarding the Model Number for those 2 televisions that blew out, I found a few other people around the US that had the same problem with similar situations. All involving massive thunderstorm power-outages.

It appears that since out TV's are both 5-6 years old, they are worthless, both covered under homeowners but for almost nothing. It's not worth fixing. So, decided to purchase 2 more lower quality televisions as this will most likely happen again when the next storm hits. Thank god we found out that this is a repeat issue before we purchased a really expensive television.
