I had the same problem and I found a shorted 100uF 100V electrolytic capacitor on the lower logic level scan board. This board was located underneath the I/O tuner section on the tv. This shorted capacitor was keeping the 70V "VA" power supply output from starting. There are 8 caps total on the 4 logic level scan boards in the tv so you should replace them all.

So my Dell has had the tuner problem since day one. Wouldn't hold channels in the tuner very long. Now It won't find any other than 2,4, and 5. After several bouts with Dell's offshore customer service who always insisted it was my antenna, I gave up. Now of course, I have a $40 tuner on my analog TV and it gets all the channels without an antenna. Gee Dell, I'll never buy anything from you again. And I tell anyone who will listen the same thing.

My solution is going to be buying a non-Dell replacement.

Will i need to get a power board or logic board to get my lg plasma tv working again?


You have some bad caps/resistors in there. They are about the only thing that can change value as you use the set and then revert to original condition. Transistors and diodes either work or do not work.

Best bet is to research carefully the symptoms on google and find out via a consensus of blogs what board is likely to be responsible for the anomaly. Look there and if necessary swap it out with known good board.

Tv come on but cant clear the picture from turning red and black how can I get a clear picture?


Without knowing anything about your Tv make or model this is hard; but there should be a reset button in your menues to restore all settings to factory default. Find and use that. However I am suspicious and think the set needs reapir.

When I try to update Bios on Toshiba Satellite A215-S7462 The computer 'locks up' (becomes completely unresponsive), and the computer's display goes blank (turns off).


Upgrading BIOS! If it isn't broken don't fix it. Upgrading is a scapegoat fix, and many manufactures have a disclaimer. "You are on you own", and the likes for a reason. Most solutions are found elsewhere. However, if you truly need to update read this to help you with the upgrade. You don't want to end up with a brick. http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10things/10-common-mistakes-you-should-avoid-when-flashing-your-bios/357

Magnavox 42 LCD 42mf438b/f7 turns on/off by itself sometimes screen goes blank tv unresponsive to remote


I have exactly the same problem with a Magnavox LCD 42", very similar model 42MF437B/37. I don't have a solution. If you unplug the TV and plug it back it starts working, sometimes for hours, sometimes for less than 5 minutes, before it turns off again. Does anyone have any real solution?

Could be the power supply gone bad.
No easy solution I'm afraid.
