Question about Emerson EWL20S5 20 in. EDTV-Ready LCD Television
My Emerson EWL20S5, 20 inch LCD TV shuts off after a few seconds of turning it on.
I found this solution..
"If this happens right away or after only a few seconds, there is a 3 terminal voltage regulator with 7805 in its part number that may have a low output voltage rather than 5 volts."
Is there an online schematic, or how to pictures, for someone who likes to see what they are about to get into?
El TV no enciende y desconecte la señal Protect 1, enciende pero la parte inferior de la pantalla no presenta información nitido o es muy poca la información. La power supply esta bien, solo el voltaje panel -6 esta bajo, alrededor de 3,5 v. el audio esta bien¿que puede ser?.

Ok, my tv was doing the exact same thing. What turned out to be wrong was one of the florescent backlight bulbs was broken. The tv was given to me, so I'm not sure how it got broken, but replacing the bulb repaired the tv.
This is not an extremely hard repair, but you have to be careful.Doing this repair entails disassembling the entire screen assembly. If you have any doubt at all about doing it, get a pro (like me). Getting a new bulb was not hard for me because I have several of these units in my shop with bad LCD screens; it may be a little harder for the general public.
I hope this helps.

This TV has a network of diodes connected
to a PROTECT-1 line monitored by the control IC. If any circuit pulls
this line low, the control IC turns the system OFF. The diodes act to
isolate all the circuits from each other, its called a diode-OR circuit.
You can troubleshoot by opening a diode which disconnects a circuit from pulling the line low. I had a hunch the EL backlight board was bad, so after opening that protect line the power stayed ON.
I found a bad .068uF 250V cap on the transformer primary, it measured .002uF. I've replaced the cap and the other two on the other transformers just for good measure.
It probably took more time than the TV is worth, but my friend's Mom will be happy, and thats worth it.
I hope this helps, look around for the service manual, it can be found online.
