Re: help

Your TV swithes itself off, probably to standby to protect from doing further damage. If you, or an experienced friend have any idea of the power supply voltages in the set, then get him to monitor each voltage when you switch on. Bear in mind the chassis metal may be live at 120 to 300 volts, and keep clear of the line output transformer. You may have to use the old type analogue volt meter with a pointer and scale, as the reading may only be there for a second or so. Remove any dust so that you are sure to see where to connect probes. There is usually an electrolytic capacitor for each voltage to connect the probes to. If the negative side is at chassis potential, then clip the negative probe to this. If no reading is measured across one of the electrolytic capacitors, then this, or another component, may be short circuit. The rectifier diode or a fuse will have blown, or be overloaded. The fault is detected by protection circuits, which cause shutdown to standby. If you can locate the protection circuit, its input data (voltages) may give you a clue where to look.

Re: help

Sounds like you have an overload somewhere in your TV. It's not a direct short in the power supply itself but one of the circuits powered by the power supply. Most likely it is in the horizontal output circuit. Stargazer

Durabrand TV BH20040 - - - weird picture problem. HELP!

Unplug the TV overnight and hopefully that will reset any menu changes you have done. I will attempt to find a link to the manual, but I have been unsuccessful in the pass as Durabrand is a Walmart house brand.

TV not coming on

You need a Tech to look at this issue. Too many PCB;s that could cause problem. Also for your info., Prima is no longer in business.

TV won't turn back on after power cord was disconnected from unit

If power cord was jerked out of the outlet or set, make sure it wasn't damaged. If it was unplugged violently, the circuit board inside the set could be damaged. Also make sure the outlet that it is plugged into is not damaged or a switched outlet.
