Re: l32 standby power only

I just had the same problem fixed. It is an internal problem with the "main board". You have to actually replace it. I am looking into fixing my other one identical to my other one and the identical problem too. Vizio fixed on "out of warranty", but for some reason will not fix the other, I guess I should be thankful, at least I know what the problem is.

My Sony Bravia HX8/46 will not turn on, I check all the power going to it and it all works. Is there something I can do?

Is the standby led on the front lit. If not likely the problem is with power supply. If the standby led is on does it go off when the power button is pressed? Does the led blink. If so count the blinks and get back. The power supply provides an standby voltage to the main board. If the standby led is lit then this voltage is present. When the power button is pressed the micro sends a turn on voltage to the power board. Normally the power supply will respond and all other voltages needed to operate the set will come up. if a component is shorted the micro will not turn on the power board and will usually give a failure code via the standby led.

Lcd tv totally dead

Follow the money or the voltage here- standby power appears to be up but if so why no standby light up front? Have you checked all the caps in the supply? The 5 volts should be for the micro so this sounds like either main supply/standby not up or something pulling it down..

The real clue here is set has no power indication of standby---you are aware of the reason the caps fail in the standby power supply?

Just trying to get an idea of how much expertise you have.

Sansui SV-3715LCD, I switch off the unit at the wall socket, when I plugged it in the next day there was no power, not even the LED indicator light on the front of the LCD activates. I checked the plug...

Continue to check--every set has a standby power supply that powers the remote circuit to turn set on and it runs 7/24 if set is plugged in.

Never a good idea to turn set of by taking the AC away--it can cause micro problems(micro processor).

The standby will provide voltage to the micro (low like 3-5 volts) and if a mechanical relay is there it also supplies it.

if NOTHING try to isolate that area in the main supply as they usually combine the standby in with the main power supply.

You may need to search for a schematic with GOOGLE (good luck on that) but if total dead begin there.

Worst case if problem is in standby you may have got the eprom or the micro when this happened

If further questions I will try to help.

Pana TH-52PWD8UK. No picture, flashing red LED on front panel

Thanks for the quick answer. I purchased the set in 2005 and it lives outside under an overhang on my patio in humid South Florida. Unfortunately, I couldnt count the red flashes before it went completely dead. Think it was 4or 5. This would correspond with a possible fuse failure on the Power supply. I bought the online service manual, I just wish I knew what to do with it!! The fuses both seem to check out ok on a continuity check. any ideas? Thanks, Charlie

Tv gets no power

Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
No power means no lights at all, dead set
Call a repairman and expect to spend $275 for a fuse or $550-$600 for a new power supply or SSB board
Check the power supply board for 5 volts , if 5 volts standby is present replace the SSB board.

42FD9954 philips plasma TV flashing LED it wont come on

The problem is in the standby power supply. the standby power supply generates the 9 volts and the 5 volts requird by the tv. If you measure the 9 volts source, with only the red light on, the correct voltage is 9 volts. However if the 9 volt measures 6.5 to 7 volts it is too low and the startup relays cannot operate. My set is a model 42FR9954/17S. In this set if capicator, 2603, is heated the voltage climbs to 9 volts and the relays work. If cold air is applied to the capicator the relays fail to operate. Replace capacitor 2503 and the problen is fixed. This capicator is: 47 Ufd, rated @ 450 volts, and is 20%.
