Question about Astar LTV-3201 32 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Tempermental TV Ok so my friend bought me this TV for my birthday in September... ever since I've had it I've ran into the problem with the TV not staying on. The picture cuts out and I get a 1/2 second static sound when it does. Now when the picture cuts out I get 3 different displays (not all at once): (1) Dark static screen with channel number and STD in top corner. (2) A blue (or white) screen that flashes on and off and random intervals. (3) The screen goes totally black as if it were off. Number 1 can be fixed temporarily with power off / power on. Number 2 and 3 I have to flip the switch on the back and leave it off for a few minutes before turning back on. These are temporary fixes and the problem usually returns somewhere between 1min - 5hours. It stopped doing this for about 2 weeks when I changed the location of the TV from one corner of the room to the other... both times the TV is approx. 2 feet from the wall intersection.

    Our TV goes black when we are watching it, but the green power button stays on. We unplugged it and waited 10 minutes before plugging it back in and then turned it back on. The ASTAR sceen came up for a couple of seconds and then it goes black again. If we leave it like this for a couple of hours it sometimes turns itself on and sometimes it just stays black.

    Same TV. Problem started when the sleep timer screen popped up for no reason at all since I didn't press that button on the remote. I pressed it to go off. Then TV went blank after an hour later. Even the red light for power indicator was not on. Looked dead. A few days later, played with it by unplugging and plugging power socket, on/off switch and button and presto, it came back on for about an hour and a half and then went dead again. This time, despite numerous attempts using the above technique still remain dead. No inidcator lights at all. Called credit card company for warranty since the company had already gone under last year in September 2007.

Hello Sir,
I hope your tv is the power problem or the main board.
But if this the back light problem then you don't need to repair your tv just sale as part (cause this back light part is hard to find and the cost is high).
You need to sent this tv for inspection. any question call me at 323-767-6030

Where can I purchase a mains power cable for TV model LCD 1507

It is two prong power cable, which can be bought from most of the electronic spare part shops at your town. I've added a picture of the power cord here for comparison. This is the original power cord for LCD 1507. OK.
