Try checking these:

Electrolytic capacitors in main power supply or elsewhere - see if any have an inflated or blown out top - replace these. Also see if any of them has a bad solder contact on the pins, if so, resolder the pins.

Other burnt out components like resistors, diodes, transistors (if they were heating up, you should notice the circuit board around them has become darker from heat). Check solder connections on these, too, and resolder if necessary.

See if any connectors have oxydized pins, if so, clean with some fine sandpaper (some might be a bit difficult to access, though). Again, see if there is a desoldered/damaged solder contact on any of the pins, resolder if necessary.

Now, these are just some of the possibilities, and if none of the above does the trick, then your TV just might need some professional servicing.

Anyway, hope you can fix it yourself...

LCD TV backlight goes off but still sound is present. Sometime it happen within few minutes and sometime take 30 minutes plus. Is that inverter Problem or CCFL? how I can rectify?


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. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television power problem


It does sound like a power supply problem but that can be misleading because a problem somewhere else in the TV can be "holding down" the power supply. This can usually be determined by using some isolation techniques.
