The LCD TV which taking ages to startup should be the issue with the main board. It can be with the either with the clock or the firmware, but it was just VERY slow in handling user input; the video processor was otherwise normal.

Your case is more likely to be related to temperature-related defect, most commonly bad soldering or dried electrolytic capacitor; this could be in both the main board or the power board.

Try this - try heating up the TV with a blower and see if it starts faster.
I would expect it would.If so just touch the solder joints with the solder rods and this may solve your issue..

If you dont see any reaction with increasing the temperature, you should change the amin board

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance
Thanks for using FixYa!

Then, with the cover off, you could locate the affected board - the power or the main control one.

In the beginning make sure to blow at the back where the air vents are and not at the LCD - there's nothing of interest to you there. Make sure to not overheat either - 20 to 40 seconds should do although that really depends on many things.

The heater trick does not always work from the first time.
And, of course, the problem may not be heat related in the first place.

But that's what I'd do if I were you

My Astar LCD TV is possessed!

My nephew had exact same problem, I fixed it by changing 8 puffed up capacitors in the power supply. They went out of business because they copied philips tv design and were sued by them.. The model was ltv-2601(canadian model) but all including ltv-2701, used cheap capacitors. Has been good for 4 months now.

We have a Model LTV-32BG that has power switch problems as well. The tv will turn off on it's own & you have to use the power switch on the back of the tv to get the green light on the front of the tv to "blink" again, or in otherwords be ready to turn on. Today in fact, the tv has turned off so much that I have given up on watching tv...
