Question about Televison & Video
Remote won't function. When It does this I have to unplug it before I go deaf. If i wait a little, I can plug it in and it will work until it happens again. Caps?? if so where?? or which board would be bad. Thanks, Bob now it won't turn on.. light stays red. All caps look good. Don't see anything burnt or damaged inside except the contacts of the plug going into the startup board look a little black
It says in the heading that the screen looks cracked. If plsma screen is cracked it will buzz and or shuts because the panel is shorted. Look for capacitors with domed tops. Likely on the power brd. Replace them they are shorted. They will take out regulator if not replaced.

Why do questions like this one show as having "Solutions"?
Does anyone else find it irritating when you click on all the "solved" questions only to find a bunch of dead ends?
I waste so many hours of my life clicking these damn things.
Once in a while you'll find a good solution with in depth, straight forward information.
The rest of the time it's just a bunch of uneducated guesses or people trying to bump it.
I don't contribute to what I just spoke of, let me advise the closest I've come yet to fixing this TV... RED LED, NO PICTURE = Bad Main board. I've changed out a dozen or so caps that read high for ESR. Most of them were the 220uF/25v. I'm going to revisit this board again as I neglected to test the tiny little electrolytic 10uF, 22uF variety. From there, I plan to chase the voltage around the board and see where it stops. If you're not insane like me, and you would like an easy solution, buy a new main board. But I'm crazy, and I'm going to whip this bastard TV, I promise.
If you don't hear from me soon, just know that I fought my hardest in battle, and in doing so, I died with honor. ...even though I left a load in my shorts from getting electrocuted by the Polaroid.
