Re: Power Problem

I had the same thing happen about a year after I bought this model in late 2001. I had to call in a repair person to get it fixed. It was, I believe, a convergence board that blew out. It cost about $400 for the repair but the TV has worked fine since. The repair person said this was a common fault at that time with these Toshiba rear-projection sets.

Mitsubihi WD-65738 no power, no lights. Is there a fuse I can check? Maybe by the plug?

Follow the power cord inside to the power board--line fuse will be there--have fun and patience as a lot of screws to remove to get there---as seen from rear power board should be to far left side.

Pioneer 65" TV Model # SD-643HD5 won't power up.

I would suggest replacing the board itself, chances are what caused those fuses to blow is still faulty. did you check those fuses again after you powered it back up?

The Power Light is Red

yeah, should stay red when unit is turned off, indicating there's power but it's doing nothing.

Per user manual:
Solid red - power off (standby mode)
blinking red - power off (now cooling)
blinking green - power on (preparing to light lamp)
solid green - power on

Power problem

Three blinks - B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672.

Need Help big screen turns on thens goes off

a tv has two components, firstly a power supply produces high voltage to trigger a line transformer, in turn a transformer produces smaller voltages. firstly check if the ht is constantly been produced from a supply, if this is there than go to a line transformer, and check voltages at the output.

The lamp is either defective, not connected properly to the wiring or plugs (careful alignment required on the two connections), wrong type bulb, or the front panel is not replaced properly to trigger the panel sense switch (lower right side of panel)
