    I have the same problem. And, the fuse looks good. How can I fix this? I may take it to a shop. I don't know if the device is still under warranty.

I solved this problem on my HTS3410D.

Inside there are two circuit boards, the power supply board and the audio/video board.

  • First, unplug your unit and let it sit for a few hours.
  • Now open the unit up, and unplug all of the connectors going to or from the power supply board. You can easily tell which board is the power supply board because it's the one the power cord plugs into.
  • Unscrew the four mounting screws that hold the board to the case.
  • Using a pair of needle-nose pliers, squeeze the two white plastic clips that hold the board to the case (one at a time), while gently lifting the board away from the case.
  • Now that you have the board out, feel the tops of all the capacitors (they look like this). Healthy capacitors should have a totally flat top. (There is probably one that is covered in some sort of heat shrink, so you can't feel the top.)
  • One capacitor most likely has a slightly bulging top. That is the culprit.
  • Using a soldering iron, carefully remove the busted capacitor, making sure to note which side the stripe is on.
  • Buy a replacement capacitor at Radio Shack or www.digikey.com that has the same capacitance (e.g. - 1000uF) an equal or greater voltage, and an equal or greater maximum temperature.
  • Insert and re-solder the replacement capacitor in the same orientation as the one you took out, then trim the excess leads.
  • Reassemble your system, and you're done.
The capacitor that died on mine was 1,000uF, 16V, 105°C. It was located fairly close to where the power cord comes in to the board. I replaced it with a 1,000uF 50V capacitor, and the system powered right up like a champ. The entire process took me about an hour.

I hope this helps some other people have similar results.

The main power supply board has the fault. It might be replaced. It is best to replace as card basis, rather than making 'surgery' to it.

Tv has no power button.. remote works cant turn on tv with remote (not linked up)


Unless the TV is in the standby position there will be no power to the processor circuit and IR detector which is needed to process the incident signal from the remote to the processor for action.
If there is no standy check the power and the processor +5 which is most critical.

Standby light stays red and will not turn unit on.


Try to reset the macroprocessor. Unplug the unit from AC, hold both buttons SPEAKER A and SPEAKER B and plug the cord in outlet. After display flashes several times release the buttons. No result? - repair shop.
