Astar TV on/off switch getting hot and turning off
I have an astr tve and the on/off switch is getting hot and turning the tv off. I have cut the switch off and I was going to get a new one, but that may not be the problem. I am very handy. Do you have any suggestions? My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you, Rickie

My nephew had exact same problem, I fixed it by changing 8 puffed up capacitors in the power supply. They went out of business because they copied philips tv design and were sued by them.. The model was ltv-2601(canadian model) but all including ltv-2701, used cheap capacitors. Has been good for 4 months now.
This company is no longer in business. They were sued by Phillips for various copyright infringements and were forced out of business when they didn't comply with the lawsuit. We lost out on our rebate check and the fees it cost us, so I know all about it....
I also have an Astar TV which turns on and flashes the Astar logo before the screen shuts down (Green power light stays on). From what i understand this is generally caused by low grade parts and to much heat. I dont know if you have gotten close to the TV while it is running but it gets extremely hot. The main issus with this is it causes the Capacitors to blow. there are about 20 of them and they generally sell for about $1.25 - $6 each online. If you have any experience soldering i have read about other people performing the fix themselves. I dont so i am currently looking into the cost to have them replaced by a professional. I will try and post what i find out.
