This TV has a network of diodes connected to a PROTECT-1 line monitored by the control IC. If any circuit pulls this line low, the control IC turns the system OFF. The diodes act to isolate all the circuits from each other, its called a diode-OR circuit.
You can troubleshoot by opening a diode which disconnects a circuit from pulling the line low. I had a hunch the EL backlight board was bad, so after opening that protect line the power stayed ON.

I found a bad .068uF 250V cap on the transformer primary, it measured .002uF. I've replaced the cap and the other two on the other transformers just for good measure.

It probably took more time than the TV is worth, but my friend's Mom will be happy, and thats worth it.
I hope this helps, look around for the service manual, it can be found online.

SOURCE: tv automatically shuts off after being on for a

The most common problem for this set that will cause shutdown after a few seconds is the inverter board. Looking at the set from the back, it is the long slim board that is normally located on the far left side of most lcd tv's. There are 3 electrolytic capacitors located on this board, and changing them will fix a lot of these sets for this problem. The location numbers of the caps are c330, c350, and c370. If you have any experience working on electronics, I would start by changing these caps. They are very inexpensive. If you would rather just change the inverter board, try shopjimmy.com. That is a good place to buy boards for flat screen tvs.

We have lost our manual for this TV. Is it possible to print one from online or to have one mailed to us?


Emerson TVs are built by Funai. You can get the manual from the Funai site, http://www.funai-corp.com/support/manuals.aspx . Search for your TV model to find the manual as a PDF and then print the file.

The direct link to the manual for the EWL20S5 is http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/EWL20S5.pdf . For the best results when you want to print the file, save it to your computer and then open it in Adobe Reader (instead of using the plugin). You may need to change the scale at which the document is printing. Use the Print Preview feature to guide your printing choice.

I hope this helps.
