Question about Sceptre X460bv-f120 46-inch Class Television 120hz Hdtv Lcd And Pc

1 Answer

Ideas? TV Works BUT has extremely Hi Pitched Screeching from power board.

I have fixed this since I started writing Although Never fixed. Machine was repaired under warranty 2 times... If you replace the power board They still sell rev1. The smallest transformer in the center of the board was screaming. I isolated it by hearing then I firmly pushed on this transformer to the weight of my push shut it up quiet till released. So I re-soldered all the connectors of this transformer as to remount it to the board. It is quiet now. If you visually look at the transformer. you will see that the transformers are smothered in a yellowish clear rubberized plastic. The plastic on the one I remounted was visually cracked. Another step I've heard is to slather some more epoxy on top of it. Take Care

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.

Testimonial: "We are the technicians. We are here to do the repairs. "Surgery" on Power Supply Capacitors is almost always recommended. Whole board swapping swap can be used to isolate issues. In the field you don't always have full boards. 15w 25w 40w Soldering guns, solder sucker, solder should be in your tool kit.

PS the BlogSpot above attacks you"

High pitched rev when accelerating up to 30mph and a losing power with a sound like someone scratching thier nails down a blackboard

Sounds like the clutch is failing. The engine is reving up and the bike doesn't as much? the screeching is the clutch slipping, check to be sure the clutch is adjusted with free play at the handle and smooth operation ( cable works smoolthly ). Then reserch how to get the cluch set and when it arrives change the clutch. It's possible that the primary gear set has failed is it really loud? Take the cluch cover off and inspect for busted parts and striped gears. what ever you find write down the parts needed and put it back together as the longer it's apart the more likly you'll never get it fixed.

The power supply is starting to fail. There are a number of capacitors in the power supply that need to be replaced. A local repair shop should be able to fix this easily. Figure on $10 max for parts.

High pitched screeching/broken handle release

For the handle problem, detent lever part #2030052 and costs $4 to $5. A bearing in the motor is what is making it sound bad, part #2032211 and will cost around $60. You could try or call them. They can at least let you know who has Bissell parts near you.
