I REPLACED THE TWO 2200UF CAPS ON THE POWER SUPPLY MAIN BOARD . BOTH THE BAD CAPS WERE BULGING AT THE TOP. I COULDN'T FIND DIRECT REPLACEMENTS SO I USE ONE 4700UF AT A HIGHER VOLTAGE RATING FROM RADIO SHACK AND FIT IT IN OVER THE BOARD. JUST MAKE SURE YOU INSULATE THE LONG LEADS.

    You can increase the temperature rating or the voltage, but increasing the uf rating will cause major issues most often immediately, but if not immediately, shortly after. Changing the uf rating, changes the entire character profile of the cap. You should have ordered the correct caps from a specialized electronic components supplier, not settled for what radio shack has, which is primarily cell phones now a days.

    I replaced these same two caps with the proper 2200 uF caps and the set works now. See this article for which caps i replaced:http://blog.coppelltvrepair.com/2010/10/...

    I had no picture and no audio, but power button lit up blue when pushed and relay clicked. Set did not respond to remote, such as power on/off. These caps are in the low voltage part of the power supply that provide power (e.g. 5v) to the logic board. My 5v reading from the power supply was 3v-3.5v, apparently low enough to prevent the set from powering the picture, audio and remote control circuitry.

Have a look at this instructable:

It describes fixing a W5001C with the problem of a blank screen but still having audio.

They have a parts kit for a common power supply failure for several Dell HDTV including the W5001C Look for bulging capacitors on all circuit boards and replace with the same UF (microfarad). However it is better to replace them with a higher voltage and tempature rating if you can find ones that fit on the board and chassis. Use an ESR meter to find the bad caps that are not bulging at the top. You do not need to unsolder the caps to test them with the meter. Electrolytic Capacitors are the most common failure in all modern consumer electronics and they are cheap to replace. It is because they are organic and dry out over time. Faster in hot environments like sandwiched between 2 large heat-sinks in the power supply section of the circuit board of a large screen plasma tube as in this TV.

As long as the power light is blue, its probably the panel and the audio amp. because these units are old, i simply replace the panel, powerboard, this usually solves the problem along with the updated rev code and firmware update.

Model 32ld452c. Why is there a black screen and no sound?


Sounds like main digital board fault. These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Coby 40 LCD TV has splash screen and sound, but no picture


Looks like you might have issues with your screen it self the lights and all internal issues. You might have to take into a repair shop to get it done, a fuse might have been blown up. If you have warranty try to take it in and get it fixed.
