If the power light does not come on, first try another outlet. If the monitor has a removable power cord, try another cord. If those don't work, there is a fault in the monitor power supply. Most likely the unit has bad capacitors. You will have to check them visually. If they look domed on the top, and perhaps stained, they will need to be replaced. If you cannot solder, then it's time to either take it into a service centre, or replace the monitor unless you have a friend who can replace the capacitors.

You can Google "replace capacitors in LCD monitor" to see examples of what must be done. If you inspect the power board and the capacitors are fine, there may be another problem with the power board which means unless it's a monitor worth over $200 it's unlikely worth having the power board replaced. Donate it to a school for their students to practice on.

Epson 545 power supply replacement


I did the same stupid mistake of plugging the printer into 240V in India recently and I found the solution. Thought of sharing with everyone. Hope this is not too late. The power supply fix is pretty simple. Please look to the side of the printer where the LAN and USB lines are and see the highlighted screw in the below image. Remove that and then just remove the lid carefully to disconnect the power supply to the internal printer units.

This is the other shot from the printer side wise to reveal the exact location of the screw.

Once you have removed the power supply connection to the internal boards, you can simply slide out the power supply out.

Once you have take out the power supply - take it to the near by electronics shop / repair shop and check out circuit. Mine had two blown up capacitors and one IC Chip which costed me about Rs. 150 (INR) with service charge about Rs. 200.

No power whatsoever, is the bukbs gone or just the power unit?

If you are not getting any power then the first thing to check would be the 2 fuses on the power supply board. Below is a picture of the power supply board with the 2 fuse locations circled in yellow. The fuse values are printed right on the board, just use a multitester to check to see if they are blown. If the fuses are both good then the next thing would be the filter capacitors on the power supply board. The second picture below shows the capacitors to check. Look for bulging tops, they should be flat. If any show signs of bulging then they will need to be replaced too. You can get a kit of the capacitors at this link:

I hope this helps,

We were watching our TV and there was a "pop" and the screen went blank. Now when I try to turn it on nothing happens, the standby light switches to red and no picture comes up at all. What happened??

It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur. The "pop" you heard was probably a Capacitor has literally "Blown Up". Due to a power problem.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done. It is that sound that gives it away, this is a typical switchmode Power Supply problem.

Blank screen, blinking blue light on front

When a unit shows these symptoms it generally indicates that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.

When i switch tv on, it shows picture for 5 seconds then goes into standby. the tv is a vistron ltm-3271e lcd

The problem is associated with the power supply that cannot run under load. The showing of picture for a brief period of time indicates that the main board, ballast, inverter and panel drive are all OK. The unit turns on but the power supply cannot sustain the power requirement of the unit and shuts down.
The usual culprit on the power supply are blown or bad capacitors. Check the power supply for such capacitors. If no apparent damage or defect is found, replace the power supply.

Im not sure if this will fix your tv, but mine was powering off intermittently. I found a defective
2200uf Capacitor on the power supply board. Take a look at the top of the capacitor cans,
mine was popped up an looked damaged.

The main problem is the power supply. In detail, the output capacitor of the power supply causes the problem. I guess, Toshiba or Lite ON didn't consider the aging effect of the output capacitor. You should replace the output capacitor to fix the problem. (In some sites, they recommend to replace the power supply, but don't do that. The new power supply costs over $200 and the capacitor will be less than 50cents.) If you disassemble TDP-S8, in the power supply, you can find the electrolytic capacitor 3300uF/10V. You should replace this with any electrolytic capacitor with the range of 2000uF~4000uF/10~16V. You can download the service manual from some websites (I've paid $5 for this) then you can disassemble the projector. Of course, you need to do soldering to replace the capacitor. I've fixed this problem yesterday and it took about 4 hours for me. Good Luck~~!!
