Question about Sharp LC-20AV4U Television

1 Answer

My sharp LC-20AV4U tv did not turn on when i plugged it in

I moved the TV from the bedroom to the living room, so I needed to plug it back in along with the DVD player. I plugged the TV in first and when I plugged it in – I was behind the TV at the time - I thought I noticed a flash, not sure where it came from exactly on the TV – but must’ve been the screen. I didn’t think much about it at the time as it didn’t seem that big and I thought it might’ve just been a flash from the outlet when the plug entered.

I then tried to turn on the TV – but nothing happened – no sound, no click, no pop. Nothing. Tried unplugging it, and replugging it, moving to another outlet etc – still nothing. I then read online that sometimes as a safety feature, the TV will shut itself off - and if you leave your set off and unplugged for 6-8 hours it will reset – allowing you to turn it on again. So I waited until the next morning and then plugged it back in and tried it again – still nothing.

So I took off the back of the TV and found that the little 4W 125V fuse was blown. I didn’t see any other noticeable damage, so I picked a few new fuses up at Radioshack and replaced it, then plugged it back in. As I plugged it back in – I heard the fuse blow – sizzle,pop. I tried the power button – again nothing.

So I guess something is causing the power to come in at the wrong wattage/voltage and thus cause fuse to blow – powerpack, voltage regulator or whatever.

The fuse is blowning because most likely when you plugged it it, it took a power surge. And the power surge blow a proection diode. As long as you opened it up... in the power section you will see a bunch of diodes. Get a multi meter and check these diodes out. Besides the diodes... you will see a transformer.... if you are looking at the unit with the fuse to the left... then look to the right of the transformer... you will see a transistor on a metal heat sink... that could have blown also.. if that did... then you should also check the diodes just on the other side of the heatsink too.

Good luck

My flat pane sharp LC-20AV4U does not turn on. The power light is gone (usually it is orange when off and green when on) switch gets power and works.If I had a wiring diagram I probably could figure it out


Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

Thomson dsi 4200 satellite receiver


The only way this would work ( and this applies to any form of cable/satellite box) so the only way this works is if the TV that has the satellite connected to it has a video output normally indicated with the color yellow, but you still need sound that normally is the red and white (RCA cables). So the first tv needs to have video and sound outputs and the TV you want it connected to needs to have the video and sound inputs. depending on the distance between the 2 TV's this might prove to be rather difficult. it would be easier to run the coax cable from the main satellite box to the room where you have the 2nd TV however to do this you would need to move the satellite box back and forth. Hope this helps
