    I have the same problem with a GPX brand under cabinet TV and it has the same transformer number. I believe the transformer converts 120VAC 22W to 12VDC 15W. My TV has a DC input so I bought one of those transformer adapters where you can select the voltage output and it works fine. The adapter I bought had an output of 12VDC 12W but that was close enough. I got it form, just search for VX 79NP.

I also have the GPX under-counter TV, same problem. I believe the transformer is AC-AC, because both wires out are red... I actually have two of these units, one doesn't work at all, the other has enough power to play the radio, but not the TV. I swapped the transformer from 1 into the one that was completely dead thinking #1 had a bad tuner, but the same symptoms exist now in #2, making me think that one transformer is completely gone and the other is malfunctioning. I'll try the VX 79NP on both and try to remember to post the results back here....

It does nothing does not even turn on

There is a possibility that a fuse has blown and just needs to be replaced, I have worked on a few similar units with the same result.

No power or anything

So I had nearly the same thing, only no intermittent behavior - just alive one day, dead the next.

I took my unit to an electronics repair place. For $25 they diagnosed AC power supply failure and offered to charge me a total of $110 to refurbish the machine.

I balked since we paid far less for the unit on Ebay ($70 or so).

The store gave me the parts list for the estimate though - and I bought the parts and did the work myself. Total another $25 approx, plus time. If you are up for some small electrical work, get a soldering iron, some electrical solder and a soldering wick. You will need, some wire cutters / strippers, and a screw driver too. you may also want a Dremel tool with a cutoff wheel.

Anyway, just replace the first 4 diodes after the transformer leads to the main board and replace the transformer.

The diodes can be from any of a number of manufacturers - mine are Vishay part number 1N5408 - 0827J. The critical part of this part number is the first 6 characters. Put the diodes in using the orientation guide printed on the main circuit board (otherwise risk putting them in backwards).

The transformer part was a Stancor, part number P-8657 - it converts standard wall AC (117V at 50 or 60 Hz) to AC at 12V, 2A. This part is BIGGER than the OEM Hang Fung transformer. I used a Dremel tool and cut out the mounting pieces for the OEM transformer from the main housing. This made enough space to fit the new transformer. Now the new transformer is held in place by clamping action of the two-piece main housing when the screws are installed. I DO NOT KNOW IF THIS IS SAFE, SO YOU ARE WARNED!!!

Unit works fine now. Mouser electronics has the parts and will ship USPS in a few days.

Thanks to VY Electronics, Rochester, MN for diagnostic work.

Unit is dead....

The power supply is the first place to start.

Is there a transformer? Check to see that there is AC on the primary & secondary of the transformer.

If no AC on the secondary, then the transformer is bad. If AC ok on the secondary, then look for a bad rectifier diode/module and/or regulator module. There might also be fuses on the DC side of the power supply.

If the unit is completely dead, it's most likely a power supply issue.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Check components around the flyback transformer. Especially small value resistors and diodes. Also check the solder joints on the flyback transformer. Please be safe and unplug set when checking parts, also discharge caps or wait a while after unplugging.

It would not power up

You should open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced or buy a new one. good luck!
