    I do not see any blown capaciters, there is one that looks like it is dented on top, but not blown,

    Any way to check these?

Hello,

This sounds like he power supply in the unit is having problems. If you or someone can take the back cover off and look at the power supply. I think you will find the problem. There are parts called capacitors that get damaged by the heat buildup in the enclosed space in the monitor. Over time the will start having issues and cause just the type problems you have. You can check our web site at:
www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm We have pictures of what the parts look like after they have blown. IF you find any that look like the pictures just unsolder them and go to Radio Shack and you can get replacement "caps" then just solder in the replacements. Be sure to align the stripe on the side the same way the bad one came out. Re-assemble your TV and you should be good to go.


I hope this info helps,

    About the only way to test them is with a ESR meter a regular multimeter will not test for shorts. Can you take a few pictures and send them to me? If you can get one of the cap with a dent that would help too. I will see what we can do.

    Sorry about that.



    I was looking at two solutions at one time and got caught up with them both. Okay if you now cannot turn on the unit the problem would be in the power supply unit this sound you got with the noise is a capacitor gave out.



    1. If this is not under warranty please check the tv for budging capacitors or leaking capacitors and replace them accordingly.

    2. if a capacitor went out so did a fuse so this would need to be replaced as well.

    3. once you found that bad capacitor you can unsolder it and take it in to a radio shack and have the match it up with a new one. Remember you should check the fuse as well and see if it did not go as well.



    4. please disregard the statements i made at first and accept my deep apologies as you are right on that regard I just did not read the whole problem as some if it got fragmented in the browser so it looked kinda funny about the cat scan thing.





    Thanks for giving me another opportunity of correspondence and accept my apologies for the unprofessional sense of humor.



    If you have any other questions please feel free to ask, if you do like the soltuons please hit the accept button, Thanks agai nfor using Fixya.com

Tv has sound but no picture


Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. 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 inverter board as card basis.

No blue light on 32 in sceptre tv but everything else works fine


If you mean the blue color spectrum isn't there and you are using component cables, check both ends of the blue connections to make sure they are pushed all the way in.

Why are there multi-colored lines in the middle of the TV?


The usual suspects include main and other boards it is connected to up to and including a defect inside the display panel itself which is of course fatal.

No sound, no picture


If by catscan sound you mean a high pitched whine? That usually indicates that the power section has had a part fail. The capacitors on the main board will cause this. You can take it to the shop but get an estimate first as the repair cost can be close to replacement as the prices keep falling. The repair parts are pretty cheap but the labour isn't.
