Re: No power

Check connector between Logic & PSU 2nd pin from Left (Vs_ON) for DC volts.
If Voltage is 0 then problem is with Logic or SSB.
If Voltage is 3.1 VDC then problem is with PSU or other PCB's on Panel.
On startup Logic checks for errors and also polls the SSB for Errors. If Errors found then Logic will not send High to PSU.
To confirm if SSB or Logic is at fault then disconnect and remove SSB.
Use 2 Jumpers to short J8003 & J8004 on the left edge of the PSU
Use 1 Jumper to short CN2012 on the lower left part of the Logic PCB (White signal to the Display).
Plug in the AC to the PSU thru CN8001.
If PDP panel operates with White field screen then problem may be the SSB.

Have an insignia tv that won't power on...was off..made popping noise...won't power on. checked power in both the surge protector it was in & wall. all other items plugged into surge protector work....

Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

I know you are not wanting to spend anymore money, but here's what I did. I had the same problem and finally bought hundreds of these hard to find 3300UF 10v capacitors from china. These tvs are assembled offshore and quality and accuracy is suspect at best. It sounds like they put the wrong capacitors in yours which are severely underpowered. Capacitors ususally puff up when they are dead or dying, but not always. Perhaps you might want to try this.... I offer it freely and without guarantee, but it's better than ditching a 1200 dollar tv. I took 2 of them (caps) to my local electronics store and paid the guys 20 bucks to solder them in correctly. The key work here is "correctly". There is a polarity issue so it's best to have a pro do it. So for about 35 dollars I saved a 1200 dollar tv. The power supply for these things are over 600 bucks too. My electronics guy had a hard time finding these caps, which is why I went ahead and found them myself. My ebay listing is. You can buy 2 capacitors for 10 bucks plus shipping/hand. Suffer no further. Again, I was suffering with this same problem until I put the correct caps in with the polarity correct and took it home and now it runs like it's new. Just trying to help, hope I did!! :)

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

Screen goes blank after 2 minutes

Your best bet is to take the back off and look if there are and bulged capacitors on the power supply first, also look for cold solder joints on the 24 volt rail that goes to the HV inverter board. If both seem to be ok then you could have a inverter transformer going bad on the inverter board. Let me know how you do>

Samsung tv wall mounting

For a true flush mount installation, you will need to recess your connections (i.e. power, HDMI, S-Vid, etc). Most tvs have the connections coming out of the bottom to allow flush mounting.

If your wall is not drywall, or you really don't want to bother with the expense of recessing your outlets and cable connections, just get a swivel arm mount. It will allow the TV to sit a bit further from the wall and still look ok.

Go to for great deals on mounts. I have 3 of them in my house and they are excellent quality.

What is the screw hole size in back of tv

The screw holes are metric. The set is supplied with M5x25 screws to attach the pedestal, so the wall mount screws will be in that same range.

How can I put the base back on my tv Sony Bravia KDL40S2000

Lay the TV face down on a flat surface covered with a cloth. Back out all the screws holding the base stand. Hold the back and front against the base shank while tightening all the screws through the base. Make sure they are tight.
