tv's are good for around 10 years. then they start to have problems. it does have a fuse in it you might want to check, but in most cases i would say the power supply in the tv has gone bad. it is hard to say without testing some voltages in the tv. if i am right a repair will cost around 200.00. i would not put this type of money into a tv of this age.
good luck :)
let me know if you need more info??

Check the owner's manual before consulting other sources. Often, the possible problems are laid out right there, along with a troubleshooting guide.

  • Step 2 See if the television manufacturer has a Web site with troubleshooting tips or FAQs.
  • Step 3 Check all the connections - AC plug into the wall, cable television connection, input and output cables to other machines such as VCRs. Unplug or disconnect them, then plug them in again.
  • Step 4 Look in the fuse/circuit box to see if the switch for the television's room is flipped, meaning that a fuse blew. If it did, flip the switch back to reset the fuse.
  • Step 5 Check the remote control and replace its batteries if necessary.
  • Step 6 Adjust the television controls, following advice in the manual. Incorrectly set controls can cause problems like sound but no picture and picture but no sound.
  • Step 7 Test the setup of the cable television or VCR hookups by referring to their manuals. If you can identify which item is causing the problem, you can call the company's customer service number and talk with a technician.
  • Step 8 Clean the parts of the television that are visible, but don't dig into openings. Make sure the television is unplugged from the outlet when you clean it.
  • Step 9 Double-check the antenna if you have one. Replacing it or pointing it in a different direction may help solve the problem.
  • Step 10 Take the television for professional service, if necessary. It's better than nullifying the warrantee or ruining the machine by attempting repairs yourself.

    Sony kv32v15 is dead with no sounds are lights. How difficult is it to replace the power supply / power management components?

    since the problem is dead set all you need is open the back cover to trouble shoot, use digital tester. check blown fuse and then power on the unit check the output voltage at power supply panel board which supply the main CRT chassis board. if no output voltage check open fusible resistor its about .1 ohm, then check shorted rectifier diode and transistor sometimes cause by voltage fluctuation. just consider also the horizontal out put transistor it might be shorted cause by over current coming from power supply.

    Hi I have the sharp 60inch, when i power on there is nothing on the screen, so it is the MB problem or one of the Resistor is opened or the LED are burned. Thanks

    your explanation is saying that you have a dead can be what you mention.but check your power regulator.or the following componets.horizontal output transistor,flyback,10 mf cap in the power supply and there is another 10mf at the input of the flyback along with a diode.there is also a resistor in the same area that you need to check.if that does not not solve your problem take out the microchip the number on the board is 506 when that is damage it can cause your set to dead.around that same ic there is a diode and a little transistor check them if they are shorted they can be the culprit that damage your microchip ic.

    Components on the printed circuit board are still faulty, you need to carefully check the components on the board with the use of an ohmmeter.
    Do follow the below procedures to enable you repair your television.
    The click probably means that the power relay is working, though there could be bad contacts.

    Since the fuse doesn't blow, you need to check for:

    Other blown fuses - occasionally there are more than one in a TV.

    Replace with one of exactly the same ratings.

    Open fusable resistors. These sometimes blow at the same time or in place of the fuses. They are usually low values like 2 ohms and are in big rectangular ceramic power resistor cases or smaller blue or gray colored cylindrical power resistors. They are supposed to protect expensive parts like the HOT but often blow at the same time.

    If any of these are bad, they will need to be replaced with flameproof resistors of the same ratings (though you can substitute an ordinary resistor for testing purposes). Before applying power, check: Rectifier diodes, horizontal output transistor, regulator pass or chopper transistor (if present), and main filter capacitor for shorts.

    An initial test with an ohmmeter can be done while in-circuit. The resistance across each diode and the collector to emitter of the transistors should be relatively high - a few hundred ohms at lest - in at least one direction (in-circuit). If there is a question, unsolder one side of each diode and check - should be in the Megaohms or higher in one direction. Removed from the circuit, the collector-emitter resistance should be very high in one direction at least. Depending on the type, the base-emitter resistance may be high in one direction or around 50 ohms. If any reading on a semiconductor device is under 10 ohms - then the device most likely bad. Assuming that you do not have a schematic, you should be able to locate the rectifiers near where the line cord is connected and trace the circuit. The transistors will be either in a TO3 large metal can or a TOP3 plastic package - on heat sinks. The filter capacitor should eventually measure high in one direction (it will take a while to charge from your ohmmeter). It could still be failing at full voltage, however.

    If you find one bad part, still check everything else as more than one part may fail and just replacing one may cause it to fail again.

    Assuming everything here checks out, clip a voltmeter set on its 500 V scale or higher across the horizontal output transistor and turn the power on. Warning - never measure this point if the horizontal deflection is operating. it is ok now since the set is dead. If the voltage here is 100-150, then there is a problem in the drive to the horizontal output circuit. If it is low or 0, then there are still problems in the power supply or with the winding on the flyback transformer.

    Other possible problems: bad hybrid voltage regulator, bad startup circuit, bad standby power supply (dried up filter capacitor, etc.) bad relay contacts as mentioned above. However, these probably would not have blown the fuse in the first place so are less likely.

    I have no power getting into my dvd recorder. would it be the power supply to the unit is burnt out.

    If you not getting any indicator at all, then the power supply is dead, if you get some indicator light and that all it does, then the 5v standby voltage circuit is OK but not the main power section. Look for bad filter capacitors that will have bulging tops.

    Dead Set after power surge

    Check the power supply transformer primary driver transistor and the associated components (some diodes and capacitors, resistors, an optocoupler maybe) and the rectifier diodes (or a bridge) and capacitors at the transformer secondary, what you are looking for is a short circuit, however, the short may as well be in another section of the circuit board (a shorted component may sometimes have signs of damage caused by heat, but this is not a rule).

    Hope you can find out what it is...

    Goodmans crt tv dead

    there is another supply missing from your power supply, chec your components on that power supply a ht of 90volts is missing,
    check all active components like transistors,diodes and resistors with very small values,
    if you go through you are going to win that problem, ok.

    Fuse blows when it gets plugged in

    No it doesn't sound like a resistor, it sounds like you have a short in power supply, you can look for bad Diodes in bridge rectifier,or solder bridge, or transistor short, start from beginning to end. It is definately a short and most of the time resistors open and this will not cause a blow just a dead set.

    Will not work

    Have you tried another batt, reason being is that if the batt. is dead and the power works but is not connecting inside then it gives the indication that nothing works. If you can check batt. and find power then look for fuse. Now fuse may not look like a regular fuse, if you can open and look in the power supply area then and check fuse resistors, diodes anything that could be open.
