Question about Philips 37MF231D 37 in. LCD Television
I was watching tv the other night when I heard a loud "POP" sound and then the tv shut off. It would not turn back on as if it was unplugged. It appears that something in the power supply is broke but I am not sure. Any suggestions?
Capacitors tend to pop when they fail. Phillips LCD TVs have lots of problems with capacitor failures in their power supplies. I've got my 37mf231d apart on my workbench as we speak. Mine makes a whistling sound which I believe is either a solder fault or a bad capacitor.
A new power supply board is about $150 for that TV. The gamble, of course, is if the power supply took out something else when it failed.

LOOK AT THE POWER SUPPLY ,lOOK FOR VENTED TOPS ON THE CAPACITORS,IF YOU FIND VENTED TOPS REPLACE THEM WITH THE SAME MICRO FARADS BUT A HIGHER VOLTAGE RATING.
