Power Supply problem

I have a LG42LB5D that will not power on. The stand by light doesnt even come on when it is plugged in. I have removed the power board and dont see any visibly apparent defects or blown components. I have a multimeter and am sure that power is getting to the board. can someone advise me on how to further test this board to see if i need to replace it? It would be great if its just one of the capacitors or something, but i cant seem to locate a bad one. please help.

SOURCE: Stand Removal

Hi Trevor,

I haven't looked at the 47LG6000 yet, but I'll think that there are 4 screws on the back that you have to unscrew to release the socket. It may be taht there's also a clip that you have to push.

Regards, Gerard

SOURCE: How do you find out which capacitor is bad on

Usually you can identify defective capacitor when you see the the top cover on it pop up, sometimes short circuit across its terminal can be checked by an ohm meter. Hope it helps

Check to see if you get Va and Vs voltages from the power supply. There should be some wires running to the y-sus. A couple of those wires will be labeled va and vs. Are they present? There will be a sticker stuck to the panel somewhere telling you what they should be.

SOURCE: Failed Repair Job. A friend of mine called a

replacing the 10V caps with 25V caps is perfectly fine. In fact, if it was manufactured like that, those caps may not have blown.
Replacing a 680uF with a 1000uF could be problematic depending on it's function.
680uF is pretty specific when 500uF and 1000uF are much more common and therefore cheaper - one would think that the engineers would have tried using those in the design rather than a 680uF - makes me think the value of the cap is important to the frequency of the circuit it's in.
Other concerns might be whether he got any of them in backwards or not.
That's a rookie mistake, but still an easy enough one to make (for a rookie).
Also, with that many swollen caps, I wonder if there were any that leaked out the bottom before swelling at the top (IE - if some caps were missed in the replacement procedure)
Also, with that large a number of caps gone, other components may have been compromised or blown.
I'd be testing the transistors around those caps (most likely punched through rather than open), looking for fusible links (surface mount fuses, 0 OHM resistors) that may have opened up etc.
The initial attack on the problem was basically correct, and in many cases probably would have fixed it (if say the 680uF cap was functioning as a ripple filter).
But when that didn't fix it, a deeper analysis should have been done to complete the repair (including locating a 680uF cap).

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

A friend gove me her lg plasma and ive plugged everything in and it hasnt even got a stand by light it has no remote


When no standby light the unit has a problem in the power supply circuit, you may need to first check the line fusee on the power supply to make sure its not blown. If the fuse is good then you may need to futher troubleshoot the power supply. All televisions have standby lights you just may not be visible because of a falty 5 volt stanby voltage..

My acer doesnt power on at all i plugged it in to the charger and it wont charge power light doesnt even light up and i plugged it in with no battery and still nothing. any ideas on whats wrong with it?...


Check it by putting it on another Power Adapter. It sounds to me as if the Power Supply has failed... Thats the bit that supplies DC.. to the laptop, and charges the battery, they fail frequently. Take it to a PC store and ask them to test it with another supply. The Power Supply MUST be the same specs tho.

Unplug every thing such as the CD/DVD trays, Hard Drive, take out any dial-up modems, network cards, video cards, etc. unplug even the mouse and keyboard. Try powering on agan. If the computer seems to work, then power back off and plug in one device then power on computer. Keep doing that until you find the bad device preventing the computer from turning on.

If that doesnt work then carefully remove the RAM completely then carefully replace the RAM. Now with on the Dynex power supply plugged in to the motherboard, try again. If still nothing, remove the RAM and try again. If it still does the same thing, then the motherboard is dead and needs replaced. If instead you get a series of beeps then the problem MAY be bad RAM. Try different RAM. If that doesnt help. The only thing left is taking out the CMOS battery, It is the coin shaped battery on the motherboard. Take it out and wait 20 seconds then put it back. I doubt it is the CMOS battery, but at this point it is worth a shot.
