Element LCD tv model: FLX-3210 stuck in standby

Ive had my tv for the past 11 months. today for the first time i tried to turn it on and it won't turn on. it doesnt respond to the remote or pressing the button on the tv. there is a red light that indicates that there is power then a blue light turns on when you turn on the tv. well the blue light isnt turning up so the tv isnt turning on.. I have a FLX-3210 Envision TV. Using my PC on the VGA port, put it into "standby" with the red LED on, and it will not power back. I have hooked up my laptop and tried sending the DDC/CI commands but no response. It's dead! The TV still reports it's device type, so the path to the EDID data EEPROM is working. Seems that Envision should recall this TV, or a class action lawsuit is needed

SOURCE: Element LCD TV owners - Using the VGA port may crash your TV!

I bought two of these tv's and they worked fine,I hooked up a computer to both of them and blam smelt smoke in one and the other wont come on either. The computer takes them out. It is a common problem with this TV.

SOURCE: how to fix element flx-3210 that has sound but no

It's probably a backlight or backlight inverter issue if the problem occurs on all sources and the onscreen menus. (The backlight itself usually fades or makes the on-screen image change to pink/red.) With a bad backlight, you'll usually see a very dim image if you look at the TV from an inch from the screen. Block the room light from overwhelming this image (sometimes a carefully positioned flashlight will help you see something). If the inverter or video board is bad, you will see nothing. For an out-of-warranty TV, open up the back of the TV and remove the shielding. Look for any scorch marks or bulging or damaged capacitors. (Sometimes other parts will fail on this part but these can be spotted easily. Capacitors look like cylinders on a tripod.) The scorch mark and smoke may indicate a resistor or zener diode that had been used as a fuse and is now gone.

If you borrow (or have a) high-end multimeter (able to measure high frequencies - 50 kHz) or an oscilloscope, hold the multimeter probes a fraction of an inch apart about an inch above the inverter board and power up the TV. If you see a 1 or an actual value, you have a good inverter. If you see a reading near 0, the board is bad or the multimeter can't resolve the frequency.

In either case, you can buy a replacement inverter for $50-150 and just do a simple swap. Disconnect all of the wires (connections are similar to molex and ribbon cables in a computer) and remove board (a few screws usually). Connect the cables to the new inverter. (If you google backlight inverter replacement, you'll find videos and text descriptions.) Note the part number on the board, including the Rev number, and order the exact one (shopjimmy.com or lcdparts.net are good starting points). Universal inverters do exist but can result in reversed controls (up to lower the brightness). Replacing individual parts on the board is cheaper but more prone to not tracking down all of the bad parts.

If the inverter is good, then it's probably backlights themselves (several in most TVs). These are sandwiched on the perimeter of the TV (usually under some tape that holds the lamp, reflector and other parts together. You need to order by length and width and get ones for your TV size. Separate the panel from the bezel. Remove the tape, and separate the reflector (make a note of how things are put together) then you have to Dremel (or use another rotary tool) to remove the plastic to get the backlight out. (They are often molded into the frame.) Then put in the new backlight and reassemble everything. See http://www.lcdparts.net/howto/default.aspx for more information but for an overview: http://www.inventgeek.com/Projects/BacklightFix/overview.aspx. Then push the new backlights into place, reconnect the wires and close up the sandwich of tape and other parts around the screen. Then replace it in the bezel.

With a good spare backlight, you can test an inverter for condition (plug together and turn on the tv while the box is open). Similarly a good inverter can test the backlight.

I hope this helps.

Where is the inverter board located on the element flx-3210? Is it somehow combined with the powersupply? I've taken the TV apart and have found everything except a part that resembles an inverter...


Yes, inverter circuitry is combined in one board together with the power supply circuitry. It is beside the connectors of the power supply board to the mainboard. You can see two high voltage transformers, these are the one producing high voltage feeding the bulbs...

I have an Element FLX 3210 that won't light up and show a picture..it has the sound but no picture.


Check the two caps (10uF 450Vdc) by the inverter transformers, also check fuse F2.
Worst case will be shorted out ballast caps in the LCD panel assembly.

When I tried to hook my FLX 3210 up to my computer it failed to turn on at all. I used this same LCD T.V. with my old Acer Computer and had no problems at all.


you may be having a power supply failure. i have seen many problems with capacitors on the power board in those models. are there any lights on the front when it doesnt turn on? if it were a power supply problem then you would maybe get a red light or blue light come on then go back off,

How do i get picture in picture?


As far as I know, this TV doesn't have a PIP feature. The Element Electronics web site didn't appear to list this older model. www.elementelectronics.com did provide a phone number for customer support.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Element-FLX-3210-TVs-manual/id/4540dj094/t/2/ does have the manual online.

I hope this helps.
