Question about Curtis LCDVD151A 15 in. HDTV LCD TV TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Curtis LCDVD191 suddenlywent dead. No signal. Power source okay.

I checked the power source. It was working for the lamp and was not over loaded. Tried a different plug anyway. No solution. It had been working fine and then just suddenly switched off. I have only had it for 24 hours. Should I take it back?

    Update to my previous post above. Replaced the other 1000uf capacitor @ 25v and a 220uf@25v also in the output side of the power supply board, this brought back the video and unit works okay. Still have to get the dvd player working when time permits..

    Hey there. Were you able to get your DVD working after fixing the Power Supply. I had the same problem just a few days ago, replaced the caps, but no DVD.

Power board signal

Hi Jim, I hope you have done the right in put "SOURCE" setting. Like AV, PC, HDMI etc. The source setting must match the signal you are feeding to your TV. If not the TV will show no signal. I hope there should be nothing wrong with your TV. Good Luck.

WD-62525 went dead. Can a burned out lamp cause this?

No, a burned lamp would cause the power source of the tv to go in reduced mode and that would be clearly identifiable by the blinking lights on the status and lamp indicators.
If the tv is dead (no lights whatsoever)it means that the power source has failed completely - this is a big defect, that must be investigated by a pro: the origin of the failure must be found and the faulty part replaced replaced or any new part you just put in blindly will be instantly fried. At least the power source board will have to be replaced and that will cost you around $250.

Panasonic PTL500 LCD HIDEF projector - Unit occasionally powered up briefly, lamp lit, then shut down, standby LED flashed orange/red. Sometimes lamp lit and sometimes not. Technician diagnosed bad ballast...

The bulb is a discharge type - it needs a very high tension to work. The role of the ballast board is to convert the low voltage DC current coming from the power source in a high tension DC current for the bulb. Unfortunately you were truly unlucky : when the ballast board died it sent a high tension surge thru the power source and from there at the other components on the mainboard - the processor couldn't handle it and got fried. So now when you try to start the projector this is what happens: the power source starts normally - the status light goes to green as it should; it functions normally so it powers the ballast board and the rest of the mainboard - the ballast works so the bulb lights up; the mainboard on the other hand remains dead because the processor is dead so no sustain signal is sent to the power source; without the sustain signal the power source goes, as it should , in an very normal stand-by - the status light goes to red.
The entire mainboard will have to be replaced - you can't replace just the processor, it's glued in there. This is going to be expensive so ask a quote before doing it.

On my 2005 Pathfinder no turn signal power to the trailer 4 wire connector at the rear bumper, but there is power to operate the running lights on the trailer. I have checked the fuses on inside passenger...

there are 2 wires for turn signals, right and left, both are dead? did they work before? do the turn signals on the truck work? these need a converter box to work the trailer, did you check there?

Does not power on

All you have to do is to first check the power cable and the power source socket to check if they are okay, if they are okay , you then open up the back cover of the television and check for blown fuses, most times they comes in small size for HDTV TELEVISION, but if otherwise the power supply board is dead.Tries Websites, to buy a reburbish power supply board for the replacement.
Hope this helpout.....

My CURTIS DVD 8017 is not working. The battery


The reason your player is not working could be as a result of a faulty power panel or the main board.

To test the panel,

open the player from the bottom with the appropriate screwdriver,

get a meter reader and test all the components of the player,

start with the power pack and the main board to see if any capacitor is faulty,

once you detect the faulty component,

replace the board,

couple the player back together,

plug the player to a power source,

ensure the power source is at the level of current the player can work with.

do not expose to a very high current.

take care.

I have a 2004 Chevy TrailBlazer that just developed a problem with the left turn signal. The left turn signal indicator on the dash is blinking rapidly and the tail light turn signal is out. I change out...

The Trailblazers have a common problem with the printed circuit boards in the tail lamp housing.
Unplug the tail lamp housing at the wiring connector and test for power with a test light. ( With turn signals on) You may have an open circuit in the lamp housing circuit board. Good luck

TV is not coming on

If I understand your problem correctly, it sounds like the unit is not coming on... If this is correct, then replace the 3 capacitors on the output side of the power supply. There are 2@1000uF @25V and 1 smaller one which is 220uF@25V.
I think the part number on the board is marked as WX-15/19/20Power-01...
This worked on a 19 curtis LCDVD191
Hope this helps...
