Im after a bush ac power adaptor for a LCDS20TV011


You could get one from ebay , but they seem very expensive. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/24V-AC-power-adapter-Bush-1LCD23TV022-LCD-TV-/360224352429?pt=Televisions&hash=item53df0b68ad#ht_2521wt_1094 (It does say make an offer)
Other models may use the same supply and its cheaper, You could check with the vendor if a cheaper one is suitable for the Bush, after all why pay more for the same thing. http://cgi.ebay.com.sg/24V-AC-power-supply-adapter-BenQ-FP231W-Q23W3-LCD-TV-/330393378073 You just need to make sure the current/wattage and the plug on the end are the same.

No power


Probably blown fuse on the power board. If you hear a "pop" sound, you have blown couple of fuse along with some other components. When a small fuse blows you cannot hear any sound. Camera needs a new power board and repair cost may run from $175-275 depending on damaged parts.
