Question about Philips 32MF231D Television
I have a 32MF231D/37 that no longer gets any power. First thing I tried was replacing the fuse, and it continues to trip as soon as power is applied. I then isolated the board (unplugged all the cables and removed it from it's case to ensure that it's not being shorted by something in the case) and the same thing happens. As soon as power is applied, it shorts.
Any ideas? Obviously I'm looking for a cheap fix, as the TV is only worht about 700 bucks.
Freeze the capacitors is a trick worth trying. These usually are the problem
the way you run this is too use freeze spray to freeze each capacitor one at a time . Turn the TV on and if it doesn't trip for a few second longer you know that is the capacitor to change. Freezing capacitors only helps identify the fault if it is a capacitor issue (usually is with power on TV's)
