    I took the tv to three different shops and here is the result....the transformer for the screen illumination is bad...this requires replacing the whole board since components are not available separately...I was looking at over 200 dollars to fix the problem..so I went out and bought another tv (not a Sylvania) for just a little more money. I will never again buy one of their pieces of c**p! Good luck.

    Same problem, tv turned off automatically. It was in parts warranty but labor to replace board or whatever was $79 in addition the the $39 diagnostic. Have that piece of c**p gathering dust in the basement; bought a Sharp replacement. If there's an inexpensive solution I'd still like to get it fixed.

    I had the same problem and followed the fix from "guest" used 2 new capacitors from radio shack and for $3.00 the tv is FIXED!!!! Thank you Guest!!

    Your the best...now my husband thinks I can fix anything!

    what watt iron do i use? 15 seemed to not melt the solder...

  • Anonymous May 20, 2009

    The fix proposed by “Guest” worked perfectly!

    I followed the instructions in March of 2009 and my set has been running every since.

    I must admit, I was skeptical that it could be that easy, but it was…

    Thanks to “Guest” for the info!!!

    Thanks to “3dmama” for the motivation!

La verdad yo no creia que cambiando dos capacitores de 0.1 Faradios a 250V. pudieran solucionar el problema, y mas sin embargo funciono, yo tengo con esta TV Sylvania 6 anos y mis hijos la tienen prendidad todo el dia, la reparacion solo me costo 10 pesos, y el tecnico en electronica me decia que ya era inservible porque no se conseguian las pezas (los transformadores que hacen prender el tubo de liliminacion) gracias por este aporte mi TV vuelve a funcionar al 100%, si tu TV SYLVANIA Mod. 6615LE Prende y despues de algunos segundos se apaga solo cambia estos capacitores y realmente se soluciona el problema.

    Installed the 2 caps described by guest and catwatcher.TV is fixed, I watched it last night for 8 hours....before it would stay on for about 10 to 15 minutes sometimes and then shutoff.Thanks everyone !

The transformers for the illumination are not bad,that is an excuse to charge a high repair price. The solution is : there are two capacitors across the transformers, there value is 124 nanofarad aprox. .12uf/250V.Check them for an open state.if you can get a higher temperature rating it will last longer.

Just a note from one who didn't read "Guest"'s statement carefully enough. I tried the cap fix but used a soldering gun versus and iron. The gun would not melt the factory solder and I wound up damaging the printed circuit board. TV now scrap.
Use an iron not a gun and be very steady.

Television shuts off

Posted on Jan 01, 2008

The capacitors I used were Rat Shack:
0.1 uF Metallized Polyester Film Capacitor
Model: 272-1053
Catalog #: 272-1053
They were located adjacent to the two flat transformers, are light brown in color, and are marked "WES 124J 250V" plus some other markings. Remove the screws holding on the main board and daughter board. Remove all the connectors except the flat cable connecting the daughter board to the screen. Fold the board over to expose the solder side, then use solder wick to desolder the capacitor leads. Bend the leads on the new caps to fit, solder in, you're done.

    I, too, had the same issue with the TV shutting off... after following the capacitor replacement method that "Guest" suggested, the TV works perfect once again. After getting the unit apart, replacing the capacitors took less than 10 minutes. I now have a great-working LCD TV ...and the best part is.... it was given to me! I also replaced a burnt switching diode. Total investment into the repair project was less than $6.

  • Nick Mar 01, 2013

    Opened the tv (sylvania LD320SS8a) I found 2 light brown capacitors but each was different, one was labeled FNR G31D R2.5-4 M AC125V, the other: PVR 10D471K. These were located maybe 2 inches away from each other, but both adjacent to the flat transformers.

Older-model Toshiba TV shuts off by itself


There is a large sand filled resistor on the main board close to where the power cord attaches that cracks. This will stop power until it cools enough to make the connection then heats up rapidly to open it again. It may be worth the trouble if you're handy with a soldering gun and can get the back off the TV. If not then I'd consider getting a flat screen.

How to program this remote.


Hey mate is there a set button on your remote? or similar type of command, if so, turn the tv on by its main on/off button on the tv itself then stand back and point the remote at the tv, now press the SET button down for a few seconds, if you see a flashing light on your remote this means it is searching for a IR signal, cool now just keep pressing the on/off button on the remote say every 2 seconds, as soon as your TV turns OFF press the SET button on your remote and hopefully it should be tuned in and you can use the remote to turn your TV back on and play with menu and stuff.

Press the the cursor key up followed by down and power the TV off with the remote or the TV itself. Please use the original remote for this. Unplug the TV for a few seconds...replug and power the TV on. The second thing to try...press the cursor key left followed by the right key. Power the the TV off with the remote or the TV itself. Unplug for a few seconds...replug and power up the TV. Some of these TVs left the factory in the service mode. The fix is pretty simple. Thanks asking and show a few hands of support!
