Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV

Sudden power failure

I am having trouble with my Swisstec S19/8 television. Upon turning the power on, assuming it is plugged in, the television light is supposed to glow red for standby, which then turns green upon pressing the power button. Yesterday, I could hear crackling when I turned the power on, and the red light disappeared completely even though the power switch was on. I was able to fix the problem by repeatedly turning the power off and on, but I could still hear crackling after a few tries. There was no crackling when the television was on. Today, I experienced the same problem. I switched the power on, but heard crackling and the power failed. I tried a few times, and successfully turned the televison on, but after a few hours, the power failed. After this, I could not switch the power on at all. I could not get the red standby light to appear. I have had the television for a year, so no longer have the packaging, so could not call the support line.

My swisstec tv won't turn on and I'm sure it's


I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have tobuy and try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.4_2_2012_12_08_41_am.jpg

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525 HDTV that suddenly wont turn on. Just has a green blinking light when you hit the power button. Any ideas?


I found this on another website, most likely it is your power supply capacitors.
  1. Press the "reset" button and hold for 10 seconds .... Does TV turn on and blinking green light turn to solid green.

  2. Unplug the TV from it's power source for various times, ranging between 5 minutes and 24 hours..... Does blinking green light continue upon plugging in the TV.

  3. Disconnect ALL devices from the TV; DVD, Tuner, Cable Box, unplug the TV for various duration times .... Does blinking green light continues upon plugging in the TV.

  4. Press Power and Menu buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  5. Press Power and Display buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  6. Insure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.

Diagnosis: If none of the above test resolve the issue, then the failure lies in one of the following:

  1. DM Module Capacitors have FAILED.
  2. DM Module is defective.
  3. EEPROM Board failure
  4. Power Supply failure.

Swisstec 20'' keeps turning itself on


Hi All,
I have a similar problem with a Swisstec 32" LCD (older than 3 y.)
I decide to open it. Unconnect and re-connect the on/off button PCB. Then the TV don't switch on/off anymore. If you have a better solution please let a message.
