Question about Recoton Advent Advent HT3251A TV
All inputs, will not display video, although the audio does come through. When in RF/TV channel mode, the screen shows a picture with lots of horizontal tearing. Eventually it just displays a random, static spotty colored picture. After a good hour or two, the set may actually begin working - although the picture quality is not perfect by any means. What info I've gathered suggests it's power supply/flyback related. It's strange that heat actually helps the set begin working correctly. I believe the problem to be more related to a bad IC than a power problem. From what info I've obtained, this problem is not unique. I have to believe someone out there has faced and fixed this problem.
After 3 years, I finally decided to open up the TV and do some troubleshooting. Found out the problem, It was a blown capacitor Location C554 Capacitor value is 2200uF 16V - costs about a dollar to replace yourself and the TV works brand new.
