Question about Sylvania 6427TE 27" TV

1 Answer

Fuse, I think?

My TV just quit working one day. I had a plant hanging over it and when I watered it it leaked into the back of the TV (duh) I don't know what I was thinking, but anyway... I dried it up as fast as I could and nothing happened. But a few days later it just went off and hasn't come back on sense. When you push the power button it sounds like it comes on but theres no picture or sound. I was going to change the fuse but have no idea how to or even where its at.Can you help me? Model # DS32224

    I think I did this all wrong, I have a Sanyo not a Sylvania. I cleaned the spill as soon as it happened and when it went out did the inside as best as I could but then everybody started freaking out telling me that I'm not supposed to touch it for 6 months.

A good visual inspection is a must...look for spill area...clean
with q-tips and de-natured alcohol.......if it makes a sound, then
the AC input fuse is ok.....................T.

When trying to turn the tv on (on the tv not by remote) I have to press it 5-7 times before it will stay on. HELP! this is the 2nd tv i've gotten. took 1st one back for same reason now this one is doing...

it could be a lot of things... did you change for the same make? (it could be a known problem with this particular model) verify with the store... physically check the environment of the TV (by experience I've seen people having plants hanging over the TV and when they watered the plants water dripped on the controls) not good for electronics
conclusion is... those kind of switches are what we call buble switches or micro switches and when they go bad it's 99.9 percent because of ware, dirt, or corrosion so if it's new it's not ware, if it's in a clean environment it's not dirt, if it's in a humid free environment it's not corrosion so take your pic and investigate...

Good luck!

Water leaked inside , no power, is there a reset button?

First of all I must how much water leaked inside and was it actually water or something else?

Most of the time if the set was off and you left it off for a couple of days the water would simply evaporate and the set would continue to work.

I have seen other things spilled into sets, like plant water with fertilizer or etc. that cause corrosion and will cause the printed wires, the PC board traces, to actually corrode and the set will fail. If that is the case then wait until it's completely dry and take it to a shop. If it's just a few corroded traces it will be easy to fix... if not then it might be a major repair depending on if something was actually damaged or not.

I spilled some water on my tv and now the sound is broken

Turn the TV off imediately. Remove the back cover and heat up the wet area with an hair dryer to thoroughly dry the board. Then try tv again.If it doesnt solve the problem look for the board that the speaker wires connect to and replace that board..You should be able to buy online.

Water down the front of the screen and the tv turned off and it won't turn back on. Will it dry out and turn on later?

its not good remember water and power does not mix most likely shorted some parts if you do take this set to tv shop make sure you move the plant to a diffrent location okay when the tv is on it has all diffrent voltage okay when you add water to a printed circuit board its not good take to tv shop see what they say i prbally would not waste the the money on a repair when you can buy a tv w/ a warrany okay have a good day
