Spilled Water... where can I order new circuit boards?
I learned a valuable lesson: don't sit plants on top of your tv and water them. Water overflowed and spill down the back of my Hitachit 53SBX59B projection TV. I think the only place the water got inside the TV was at the bottom where the circuit board is (not on the lamps or their circuitry). The TV will not turn on at all now... no sounds or anything. I can't see any lights on the cirucit board either when it's plugged in. I may be wasting my time but where can I buy replacement circuit boards?
Re: Spilled Water... where can I order new circuit...
I can solder. I already took the panel off and looked at the board. I only see one fuse and it's fine. I don't see any visible "fried circuitry" from the top side but I haven't looked under neath. If it's just a replaceable capacitor or something I'd solder a new one one... my only problem is figuring out which one it is... and for all I know it was a chain effect that busted 100 different capacitors or whatever. Any tips on where to start?

Re: Spilled Water... where can I order new circuit...
Your Talking real expensive to replace the chassis in a projection. Was the Tv on when the water spilled? If it was only plugged in on standby it may be an easy fix. Do you have any soldering skills or troubleshooting experience?

Too often we let our irrigation systems go on without really making sure that the amount of water, the pressure, the radius and other settings are what our lawn or landscape needs. This causes not only a great waste of water and money but it may also ruin our flowers and plants. Therefore here are a few tips to transform a wasteful sprinkler irrigation into the effective system it should be, and to keep a healthy landscape, lawn or garden.
1. When to water. Watering your lawn and landscape should be differentiated according to seasons. During warm months (May to October) irrigation should be activated between midnight and sunrise, so to minimize the water that evaporates. While during winter, plants and lawns should be watered during the warmer part of the day to prevent water from freezing on the landscape.
2. Don't drown your plants. Keep an eye on your lawn while the sprinklers are on and monitor when the water starts dripping off the sides. This way you will know how long your sprinklers should be left active for, so that the plants may absorb the water without being overwhelmed.
3. Avoid daily, light watering.
4. When watering plants with deep roots, water well and deep, until about half inch deeper than the deepest roots, in order to encourage downward growth.
5. When watering on a slope do it gradually. Run your sprinklers every 3 hours circa and aerate to increase infiltration.
6. Check your sprinkler's efficiency once a month. Check for damaged, leaking, clogged or stuck sprinkler heads and for constantly soaked patches of grass or soil to detect leakage. Make sure that the water is sprayed all over the area and that new additions or plants that grew higher and larger don't block the spray pattern.
7. In seasons in which the temperature reaches 30/32 degrees Celsius remember to run your sprinklers 5 to 10 minutes in the afternoon to cool the area. It reduces the symptoms of summer patch disease.
8. Create water zones by putting together the plants that have similar water needs, and water them accordingly
9. Be careful when mowing. If your sprinkle heads don't retract underground after irrigation, apply small flags on them so that while mowing you see them better and avoid damaging them.
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.
If water was spilled in it, the batteries should have been removed immediately, if you could remove the circuit board from the casing, dry it off and place it under a lamp for a few hours it should have been perfectly fine. If a soft drink, sugar base or other substance was spilled in it; the board would need to be cleaned, a small amount of soap and water can work, use a cotton swab, only clean the affected area of the spill, make sure to rinse all the soap off, dry with towel, then place under a lamp to get all the moisture out. Also make sure you clean the bottom side of the buttons that contact the circuit board. If it doesn't work then you may have to buy another unit.
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.
Was the tv on when water spilled on it? Or on standby? I would guess it does not matter now. I do not like to even try to repair a tv with water damage...as the problem can go almost any where. Really and truly your best fix for headaches is to replace your tv. Some may argue this but I know best.
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
You burned out a resistor, capacitor or possibly a printed circuit trace on the solid state printed circuit board. This is going to take some troubleshooting in a high voltage area. If you have no TV repair experience working on high voltage circuits and solid state printed circuit boards, play it safe and have a pro take a look at the set. Good Luck
I suggest you sit down for this one! Even a small amount of any liquid on set's internals can reak havoc. What you smelled were components shorting out and possibly burning. Depending on where the water spilled, you may have just one PC board fried, but many circuits are interconnected, which means possible cascade damage to others. Never place plants anything containing liquid on electronic equipment.
