TV not turning on. Opened up, power supply is good, delivers 24V to inverter, and 5 and 14V to main board. On/Off button has no effect on BLON (Back Light ON) signal on inverter board connector CN1. Any ideas? Where can I get a service manual?

TV turns on but no picture or sound

If the power indicator comes on, that merely means that power is getting to your TV. You may have a power supply failure

Remote works however will not turn on the tv

Please take this steps on how to determine the problem:
1. Open the back cover.
2. Check the power supply output...It should have 5vdc for the main board..12vdc or 16vdc for the audio and 24vdc for the back-light inverter..
3. If those 3 voltage supplies have encountered voltage drop...The problem could be on power supply board..
4. If the power supply output is normal..The problem could be on the main board...
5. If the problem is power supply you should check if the capacitors are bulged on the top and try to replaced it..If you can't do that you can purchased new power supply board..
6. If the problem is on main board there is no D.I.Y repair on that so you need to buy a new main board that fits to your TV..
Hope this solution will be helpful..

Vizio vw26l after about 20 minutes the picture flickers then blinks out, then back on

most common problems are in power supply or main board, a 26 inch set from a cost point of view just may not be worth fixing............?

The TV does not light up. All you hear is a clicking noise that starts loud and then decreases in sound until it is not clicking anymore.

This is the backlight inverter. Your power supply is clicking to drive voltage to it, but it isn't being succesful. You will need to get a trained professional to replace the inverter for you.

Thank you, best of luck!

26" LCT HDTV Backlight Problem

It can be that the inverter is not getting the 24vdc fromt he power supply module, check for that first, you can check it at either the power supply termninals or at the inverter board. Look to see if the power supply has any leaking/bulging top caps. Modules are easy to replace, fixing it down to component level is not so easy unless you have proper tools an electronics knowledges.

Polaroid 26inch lcd tvred standby light on but power wont turn on. I've unplugged the tv, changed the batteries in the remote. The tv stays with the red standby light only.

You need to open it up and checking the voltages in the power supply sections, you should have 5v (for logic circuits), 12v for sound, 24v for backlight inverter circuits. Look for bad caps with bulging tops in power supply also.
