SOURCE: The *audio cuts out occasionally on my 42 INCH

Try using the Audio line out RCA jacks feeding a PC powered speakers to see if it does the same thing, If it is OK, then the problem will be in the power amp sections that drive the speakers.

SOURCE: tv turns on but no picture for about five minutes

The caps (capacitors) in the powerboard are going out. This is a very common problem in all class and price ranges of modern lcd and plasma tv's/ monitor's. I don't know if this problem has been like this for awhile or it just started, but either way, if the tv takes an abnormal amount of time to "warm" up then it most likely will go out all the way sometime in the (near) future. If you have a tiny bit of will and knowledge ypou can open the unit and get to the print board. Examine this for "popped" capacitors, they will have a buldging top instead of a flat one. Im gonna try to include a pic of them here, if i can get it this time, I've tried bfore lol. But you can google image a "popped" or "bad" capacitor and you would be able, with ease, to diagnose if you have any of these. Usually only one or two. Radioshack sells capacitors (couple anyway) for $1.59 each. MAKE SURE the replacement is of the SAME voltage or HIGHER, or you will be right back replacing those 2. Every capacitor has a negative pole marked with an (-) on the side of the capacitor(by one of the "legs", always puit the negative (-) "leg" of the new capacitor in the same hole in the printboard as where the previous negative (-) "leg" of the capacitor was ( a capacitor with the negative and positive "legs" put in backwards will result in the new piece "popping" as sson as you turn it on!!) make sure the "uf" rating (for example the most common popped capacitor is the 1000 uf) is the same as the one you are replacing. I needed 1000 uf, 105 c and 26v (volt) ratings for the 1 capacitor I needed to replace to fix my LG 19" lcd panel monitor I found by the trash that the light came on off, but it didn't come on. I replaced that capacitor with ; 1000uf, 85 c and 36 v (volts0...It works fine eventhough the volts and the temperature rating (36v and 85c) was not the same as the (26v(volt) and 105c ) capacitor I removed !! Further, I've replaced capacitors that had the celcius rating of 105 with the only ones Radioshack had, namely 85 c(celsius) they have been working great, but I'm not sure about any effect, nor have I heard or read (yet?) about that making an urgent difference. Many threads that I've read people have done the same, so we should be ok (my stuff has been running good for a while longer then most brand new ones!.............(all these ratings ; 'uf ' and 'c' etc are on the side of the capacitor you are replacing and on the side of the ones you are replacing them with)...For all this all you need is the cheapest solder gun u can find (I bought one for $7.99 at Radioshack), a camera (to take pictures as you go to remember how to reassemble the unit) and, once you have your materials, 20 minutes to replace 2 or 3 capacitors and you are good to go...Most monitors and tvs (lcd/plasma) I've seen you have to lay flat on the ground/bed/blanket etc, to work on (screen side down). Usually there are 2 or 3 screws (or a few more) to remove, then you will have to carefully (its comes off easily most times)insert a flat screwdriver inbetween the casing and gently pry it up as you go around the whole frame. Sometimes you have to remove the little washer arouind the cable input orso, just be gentle and you cant go wrong. Once insidet here will be a box with wires running to the sides etc...unplug, gently, these wires and open the box. Inside you will find 2 or 3 circuitboards, check them all for "popped" capacitors, replace, reassemble and plug it in....Have fun becoming an overnight tv mechanic lol! If this helped (or not)please rate, thank you!dcefcd6.jpg

You have to check the high voltage diodes near the horizontal transistor and the small transformer. Diodes might have gone leaky. Check the capacitors also.Replace the black colored diodes with new ones with identical part no.

Rarely EHT coil will have problem.

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.

T con board the problem?


Unplug the set for five minutes. Turn the set back on. That completes the RESET cycle and the system should correct itself. If not, it's time to take it into the shop.

Dryer stops, restarts minutes later


It seems like clogged vent problem but as I always say The best method is to do your home work and you must do total trouble shooting procedure and replace defective parts if necessary and
Best way is visual check and check for any faulty component and parts and check all thermostats and sensors and look for clogged vent or any damaged or rusty or cracked components and use step by step deduction method for trouble shooting

After turning on, my tv (21 inch CRT) produces peculiar rattling noise like high voltage sparking. The screen remains blank and there is no audio.


particularly that is a sign of leaking of high voltage in the secondary power supply or flyback transformer and should be corrected right away..check for emission of odor smell of ozone which is coming from high voltage leaks to make sure that it is definitely a high voltage leak...

Shuts off and runs weak when hot


Hello,
My name is Dane and I'll try to help you with your problem. It sounds as though you have a weak coil to me. Sometimes a coil will either completely stop producing spark or will get weak after it gets hot from a running motor. You can buy a coil tester from any automotive supply. just take the spark plug wire off of your plug and attach the tester between them. Crank the motor and see if the tester lights brightly. Be careful, the engine can still start with this installed. If the light is weak, replace the coil. I hope this helps. Thanks! Dane

Mower starts runs five minutes then turns off. After it cools down it will start again and will have same problem.


Hi, your problem sounds like a fuel delivery issue. Make sure that the carb is receiving enough fuel to the bowl and that the fuel filter is not clogged. Hope this helps.

My 40 inch LCD sanding tv won't turn on for awhile. It keeps doing the clicking sound for about two minutes before it catches and turns on. Shat should I do?


> Shat should I do?

Take it to a qualified TV/video technician, for proper trouble-shooting and repair, because this problem has no "end-user" repairable parts.

Check resistors in the small PCB connected to picture tube. Check picture tube grid voltages. Check brightness control swing on the IC out put. Note down the IC no and search in the Google for pin configuration.

I have a 37 inch sansui flat screen television model # HDLCD 3700. The sound just quit working; the picture is fine? Is thier any trouble shooting that can be done?


Please unplug TV from AC wall socket for couple of minutes, replug back in and turn it On and check sound.
If problem still exist, check internal speakers are enable / ON in Menu.
If speakers are ON and yet no sound, then need to check sound at Audio Out jacks at back of TV, hook audio cable (white-red rca pins) in audio out jack in TV and receiver/ amplifier to get TV sound in receiver/ amplifier speakers. This is a test/ check and you can use it to get TV sound through receiver speakers.
And if still no sound in audio out jacks in TV then TV needs main board replacement. Check with local TV repair shop for that.
Thanks.

I have a LG RU-44SZ61D DLP TV and recently replaced the bulb. After about two months the TV went really dim and then started shutting off. The problem increased to the point where you couldnt have the tv...


DLPs have flow chart trouble shooting techniques to pinpoint exactly why your set isnt completeing the boot sequence. If you would like the service manual for your model let me know and i will post a link where you can purchase a complete one.
