Question about Sceptre 50" Class LCD 1080p 60Hz HDTV, X505BV-FHD

Open Question

How do I get the video working again for my SCEPTRE X505BV FMDR 50 LED Class MHL?

My brothers and I bought my mother a SCEPTRE X505BV FMDR 50 LED Class MHL for Christmas. It has worked fine for two months but today the video randomly stopped working. I can hear the audio, but there isn't any video on the screen. When I turn the TV off for a moment and turn it back on, it works briefly, and then the same thing. I have tried replacing HDMI cables, but to no avail. Is this a fuse problem? What could be the issue here and how do I get this fixed? Thanks for any help in advance and God bless.

SOURCE: blue screen with HDMI

Check the power supply modular cable connection that is by itself in the upper right corner.  On the one my son-in-law has the double yellow jumper wire that connects to this plug in two locations was loose (not properly inserted) in the modular connector and had worked it way out.

SOURCE: Sceptre power supply short circuit

I have the same problem. TV was JUST out of warranty. Sceptre part number is X37SV-Naga and the cost - $285.00 plus $20 shipping. Non-refundable, no returnable.

The TV is of course going to de-solder the board within a year again, so either a good heat sing on both thermistors is in order OR a law suit against Sceptre is in order for putting us a risk of fire.

SOURCE: Sceptre LCD TV power come on, but there is no picture or sound.

There are two easy fixes you can try. Both require you to take the back panel off. If you are not comfortable doing this, take it to a repair shop.
UNPLUG IT.
Place the TV face down on a soft/solid surface.
After you get the back panel off, there are three silver boxes. There are white and black wires leading from the off switch to the top silver box. Take the cover off that box.
Inside is a ceramic fuse. Test that fuse. If it is blown, your local electronics shop can find a replacement.
If not, disconnect the white and black wires from the PC board. Remove the 6 screws holding it in place.
Look for scorch marks under the board.
Cut a thick piece of plastic and tape id down over the scorch marks.
Re-attach the board with the six screws and re-connect the black and white wires.

Turn the power switch to the OFF position and plug in the TV.
Turn on the power switch while WATCHING the board you just removed.
If you hear a sizzle, turn off the switch and get a thicker piece of plasic.
If not, the TV should come back on.
Re-assemble the silver box and put the back on.

Hope this helps.

Why does a scepter 50" tv go black no sound no nothing


Fault to the main power supply regulator section. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

How do i fix a sound, but no picture led tv?


Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced.

Lcd tv has sound no picture


Hi Chad,
Since you are getting the sound, the main board seems ok. Please show a flashlight on the screen, you should be able to see the picture there. If it is so, the backlights in your set are not working. Most LED TVs have LED driver circuit on the power board now days. Here a word of caution, there are two reasons for failed backlights. First the LED driving circuit and second the backlight itself. Which one has in your case, let some TV Tech decide it. In both the conditions your TV should be repairable.
Good luck

I am trying to connect my Samsung galaxy S4 phone to my Phillips smart TV 55pfl4909 with mhl to HDMI wires, but it's not working. I've watched videos on you tube & its suppose to be simple but mine is not...


The problem with MHL to HDMI is that there are two versions.

a 9 pin and a 11 pin.
Samsung S3 and below use 9 pin and S4/Note3/etc and up use the 11 pin.

Not all samsung use MHL but the S4 does.

Make sure you have the right MHL cable for your device.

I have encountered this problem personally and have bought a universal cable which covers both versions.

My brother has a Sony and also had wrong cable.
Now it works fine with correct cable.
