Re: Sylvania 42

Look for bulging electrolytic capacitors on the power board. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, google for "badcaps")

If you find any bulging capacitors, replace them. Also, replace any others of the same type & size (they are often in pairs), since sometimes they go bad without bulging, and if one capacitor of a particular size & type is bad then both of them probably are.

I had this exact symptom on a Sceptre 19" X9G-Komodo II LCD monitor. It would come on for about 1 second, then go off. It also had a burnt smell. Inside I found two bulging 25v 470uF electrolytic capacitors.

I didn't have any new 25v electrolytics, so I scrounged around in my scrap heap, and found an old 9600 bps modem with a pair of 25v 470uF electrolytic capacitors in it, and replaced the bad ones in the monitor with the ones from the old modem. The monitor is working fine, now.

Re: Sylvania 42

Check the fuses on YSUS & ZSUS boards, if found the fuse blown on that board, just try to replace the board.

Sylvania 6842THG won't turn on. the tv red light displays when you push the power button you hear a click and then 5 - 10 seconds it goes back off

I have been having the same issue. I unplug the TV for 10 minutes and it usually works fine. I moves all of my A/V plugs to a single power strip and that helped a lot. Since then, the TV went into protection mode only once in 2 weeks. Next, I will use a power strip that includes the cable protection.

Sylvania 6842-PEM Flickering Problem

Something is breaking down. Possibly a specific ceramic capacitor on the main power pcb that has been troublesome. Usually there is just a loud pop and the screen goes dead. If the set is less than a year old it is still on parts warranty and the technician could just change circuit boards until the problem is gone.
