Question about Planar XP17W 17 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Planar XP17W 17"

Recently I have noticed that when I turn on my flat panel via the remote or the power botton, it is taking longer and longer to turn on. While waiting to turn on, the power light on the front panel is flashing every 3 seconds. Today I turned it on and it has not come on for well over and hour now. The power supply lights up as if it is recieving the proper amount of juice. I have tried switching outlets around the home. I have also unplugged the set for 20 minutes. There appears not to be a reset button of any sorts available. I have had the set for less than two years........please help!!!!!!!!!!

The power supply ballast board has 5 1000uf, 16 volt capacitors that fail(you will likely see them swelling, or leaking), These are common cap's.

This can either cause the backlight to not work at all, light temporarily, or display no picture, but still give you sound.

Green Light on black screen


These units have the power supply and ballasts on one board, It's common for the capacitors on them to fail(bulge, leak, pop), those are the visual ques that they are bad, i've had good luck replacing the capacitors on this model to save them from the trash.

inspect C20, C21, C34, C37, and C36, they are all the largest caps on this board that the power cord plugs into.

Green Light on no picture


More than likely, the planar LCD sets have a set of 5 1000uf 16volt caps that fail. There could be other problems, but to check, unplug, pop off the cover, and look at the brown cannisters. They will mostl likely be bulging, or you may see blackish goo coming out of them. They're fairly easy to replace if you have experience with a soldering iron.
