    My set will turn on, but after a few seconds it will turn off. I have no idea how to fix this. I read a few posts about a solder part, but again I am not familiar with TV repairs. Does anyone know of any decent repair people in the Fort Laudedale, Coral Springs area?

I re-did the joints around the flyback transformer and replaced the convergence fuse. This has fixed my TV "for now".

Convergence fuse fix: Since I had to order the part I made a jumper wire to replace the fuse until I recieved the new "fuses" Purchased 4 for future issues :)

Convergence issue is when the three guns red, blue and green are not lined up and you're picture looks like a 3d movie. The fix is simple and can be done in less then 15 minutes. Provided you have the right screw driver and some general knowledge of soldering.

Problem: TV turning on for 3 seconds no picture then shutting off.
Fix:Re-fluxed and soldered all contact points at base of flyback transformer.

It may be better if somone just took the entire board out and re soldered every connection and joint on the board. I took pictures of the board and the fix.

The first thing I would do is to check the solder connections on the flyback transformer. This is a common problem with this set

Hello,

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to.

I do not think it needs replacement, rather some defective capacitors are causing this issue.
Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors).
After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored.

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

TV won't turn on


Before going OFF, the standby LED might blink. These blinks are fault indication. The number of blink should be counted. Count the number of blinks at one time, before the TV goes OFF. [eg: 4 blinks Power SOS P Board; 6 blinks Driver SOS 1 SU / SD / SC Boards
(SC energy recovery circuit)] and so on. you can get more details from this site named 'Electro-help'. You can reach it by searching the keyword "electronicshelponline" by internet.

NOT A GOOD IDEA AT ALL!

You likely now have one of two things happening:

1. Green power light constantly blinks and will not stop(should blink for 70 seconds and go out).

2. Green power light comes on and a few seconds later goes off.

Which do you have?

Hello mrscarpenter,

This is a common problem with the ITC222 chassis, I would check CP120, CP140, CP150 to see if they are bad I suspect CP150 is the one that is bad. Its value is 2200uf 16VDC. It is located on the same board as the IHVT and is in between the Heat sink in the middle of the board.

I hope this helps,

hello,

After further inspection, I believe that you have a blown convergence IC. Most posts point for two IC's. I only have one. STK393-110. There are 12 - 3.9ohm 2w resistors around it . I think they may be bad as well. The 2 Pico fuses feeding that circuit (+24/-24) may be open also.
So, with that said...... Think we have the problem cornered?

i have seen this before and it may be the front power button being stuck and when your remote turns it on the stuck button turns it back off again. I have an older mitsubishi that will not boot up right sometimes and i have to unplug it and plug it back in fot it to come on. I used to pick up broken tv and fix the power buton and resell them
