Refurbishing for a charity, PSU's failing regularly.
Does anyone know if this a common failing? We refurbish for a spinal charity, and the units are donated by a local hospital - but we are having a surprising number fail upon being connected to the power supply and switched on. The units are clean, and fairly free of dirt and grime. Any info would be welcome!

Please tell me that you didn't REALLY buy a REFURBISHED TV!?!?!?! And a Vizio to boot! The problem with refurbished units is that they rarely get properly tested. Many are returned with intermittent problems that do not show up at the refurbishing center, and thus they are resold with the same defect present. Vizio used to be the YUGO of the TV market. They have gained some credibility, but they still lag far behind the competition for reliability. What you are probably experiencing is a power supply problem, which is the most common problem with flat panel TVs, and a seemingly inevitable problem among Vizios.....usually a week or two after the warranty expires. I hope that you got some kind of warranty with the refurb....many are only 90 days which basically says - good luck sucker!
you can always try e-bay. or you can look in your area for a recycler of electronic devices that will remove them from your property and dispose of properly or may refurbish them with the assistance of a charity group helping people get back in workforce. if you own outright you should look into recycling and they will remove your information from the machines in most cases
Replace Scan head mechanism(while scanning or copying there is a part called scan head moves right to left with light fails to move due to mechanism breakage). For reaching this unit you need to remove flat bed glass. Pl see the snap shot for easy identification:SCAN HEAD: SCAN HEAD MECHANISM
This has been a very common issue with this model series. Unfortunately there is no quick cheap fix. The correct way of repairing it involves removing the Chassis Cluster and sending it back to Mitsubishi for refurbishing. The cause of the problem is many capacitors are failing or have failed across 4 or 5 boards. The way the chassis is laid out it is most difficult even for the professionals
to totally tear it down and rebuild it. Average cost of refurbishing is around 600.00 to 800.00.
Because Mitsubishi is not going to support this model series much longer, I would look to replace instead of repairing it.
I hope this helps,
I have an external memory unit for the CE-70 [great machine; I ran my small business with four of them yrs back]. The unit is called a Brother MD-200 and I actually have some old diskettes for it. It plugs directly into the typewriter and gets its power from the CE-70. Is it worth something to you?
ejones999, Could be toast. if under 3yr old, contact samsung and see if they will do swapout for you. Did you connect working monitor to the port where the bad unit was to PROVE 710N is really bad? Tech type person will need to evaluate unit to see if it is a viable candidate for possible REFURBISHING. You failed to state age of unit and /or # of total "ON" hours unit may have. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel on aol .com Bye for now.
If you would visit the msicomputer.com website, there's a search box in which you can enter your MS number. You should find links to your drivers, and even the user's manual with all the specs., including what ram is compatible.
not likely. They may not have anyone that's up to speed on that old of a system. I'd run a craigslist ad, and see if you can find a tech folk person, that likes to do this sort of thing(like the Victrola version for computers, eh?)
