Re: LCD television

You just had to buy the cheap one... These units have an all too common failure in the SMPS, (made in China) which is a MLT166A part number if you're buying the whole supply. But the SMPS can easily be removed in this unit and after you access it you'll find three 16v/1000mf caps that have failed EC18, EC19 & EC20, together with Z3 a 27v 1w zener diode... You can replace the caps with a 25v/1000mf if you order them to size. The higher voltage will provide a greater reliability...
If any or all that sounds too confusing you can simply replace the entire SMPS for just about $70.00 plus shipping. They're available at Fox International 888-498-7278 but don't be surprised if their temporarily out of stock and on backorder. Techs buy these things by the case because they are that common a failure.

Re: LCD television

The mlt169c appears to be a direct replacement for the original. I fixed on of these by simply replacing the caps. Previous to this it was flashing the red light just like yours. Anyway if ya wanna give up i'll buy it for 50 bucks :)

Re: LCD television

I did replace the 3 caps along with the Zener Diode Z3 that was shorted out. The caps were bulging at the top also. But as luck would have it I still have the same problem. Anymore suggestions.

The infrared receiver light just keeps blinking red and TV won't power on. Tried unplugging for a little while but didn't help.

kindly count the blinking led to diagnose where the fault came from..

also try the initial the back cover and inspect the power supply board for any bulged capacitors inside..

I have a daewoo pdh42L40 monitor and it does not turn on. The main power switch in the back works, but the little green light on the front does not light up so I can use my remote to turn on.

1. the infrared receiver may be defective and may need replacement.
This will require service from a qualified tech to replace.
2. or you may have a dead remote. check the batteries also in the remote.

I cant get the tv to come on it has power

You have a bad power supply (AC adapter). Watch closely at the red light while turning tv on to see if red light momentarily flashes green, then back to red.
