Question about Element Televison & Video
Taken the back off and looked on the power supply board for obvious blown caps etc. I do ok with electrical repairs but electronics I dont know near as much about. I've looked on ebay and found many of the power supply boards priced between 29.00 and 60.00. But I dont even know if this is the problem. Dont want to spend money on something I dont need. Seems as if there are a lot of this brand with the same problem. I emailed Element and described the problem. Im sure they are quite aware. I just asked for a solution so I could watch my TV. Never go a response from them. Any suggestions or ideas? Sincerely, Joe firstname.lastname@example.org
Power supplies are number one for going bad on TVs. I think it is worth replacing the part. Sounds like it is over heating and coming back on line when it cools.

At first my tv would work for about 8 hours, then the backlight and audio would die. The light stays green like it is on. now it will work for an hour before it does it. I'm guessing it is the related to this problem. On the viewsonic store they have the PSU board, However it is out of stock. If you can get them to send you the part It is an extremely easy fix. As soon as I find a power supply I'm going to see if works.

Unfortunately, that board is the inverter board. And for this model the inverter board is only supplied with the the PDP panel. The panel is quite expensive, here's a link if needed:

If the power supply outputs are good! Then I would say the back light inverter is bad! If the screen stays black and does not come on.
