Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have an Apex pf3230 32" TV that recently shut off, no power besides a slight clicking noise. The noise seems to be coming from a large component with a solid copper band about 3/4" wide... on said component, "BCK24211L" is printed and in smaller fonts, "20030513242" is printed underneath. Is there any help you may be able to give me???

The short circuit protection circuit inside the set; detects a short circuit [shorted component/s]. The circuit shuts down the set; to prevent further damage to components. That is happening here. The sound you hear is from a cut of relay; which in turn switches off the set. Contact any service technician to detect the fault. Never switch the TV "ON"; until this fault has been rectified. It might make things worse. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

SOURCE: Pages are printing out with solid black background w/white font

On many machines there is a "positive/negative" setting that can be set that would produce this output...check your settings.

SOURCE: Diagonal shading problem on monochrome print

I would try cleaning the lasers with the brush inside the door. If that fails, you might try looking at the developers.

Vizio vp422hdtv10a plasma tv will not turn on. Made kind of a real loud click and shut off and will not turn on again. Removed back, fuses don't appear to be blown. Circuit boards don't appear to have any...

Good call checking the fuses first. Next I would try replacing the power-board. If you have a volt-meter you can test it first, but BE CAREFUL as it would require having the TV plugged in.
The power-board is the one with the most large components on it, like transformers (coils of wire) and capacitors (tin-can looking things). The board itself will be much smaller then the main board, and may be the first place the power cord leads to.
The good news is that this is probably the cheapest component in a TV to replace (besides a fuse that is). Check online.

Apex converter boxes malfunction.

If the converter box wont power on and makes a cyclic whinging noise, it may be one of the 4 470uF caps on the low voltage side of the power supply. Check for domed tops on the caps nearest the fly back transformer (center of the board). I replace all four of those caps just to be sure and it is playing fine now.

Tv made sizzle pop sound and went out

All depending on the models, but i have seen and work on may units with this problem, there are a few large capacitors on the power supply that are sometimes doubly secured with glue, that in turn becomes conductive and causes faults like this. check all the large capacitors for any low or nil readings and with a fine point probe, carefully remove the glue on the and around the caos, and elsewhere if you see any. Good Luck.

TV wont come on

some electronic components inside your TV had shorted out! you might be hearing a slight CHIRPING! like the sound of crickets! or maybe whining! the sound migth be coming from the transformer/inductor with a shorted component on its output!

My apex tv fell forward of a desk about 2 feet high

You may have cracked the circuit board. and or damaged a few components in the power supply section or the high voltage section. If you do not have a background in electronics I would suggest you take this unit to the shop for an estimate and or repair.

Buzzing sound coming from TV

Sounds like a power supply, could be a large capacitor or a large transformer making the noise
