    Thanks James, I got that far too. In a quiet environment you can hear a nasty "arcing" noise at about 1Hz in time with the LED flash, naturally coming from the area near the power connection. I'll open her up, power on, and stand back. The culprit will no doubt be winking at me, I just hope the whole board isn't fried now. If you're interested I'll post an update, I guess someone might be.

    I've just bought the goodmans gtv26wlcd tv from a friend. The picture was absolutely fine at his place but as soon as I got it home the picture is really dark. Even when I turn the brightness/contrast up it still seems to be a really muddy picture. The really funny thing is when I press the teletext button the usual brightness comes back but only for a second before the teletext screen comes on - weird I know.

    Any ideas??

    Hi, My friend bring his Tv, in similar problem. This is a power Supply failure. The all PCB was overheated, and burned out. The High Voltage is spark. I isolated, and change few parts, and maybe switch on. I left it, and cca. one hour later, switch off again, and not wanna start. I think the all module is worn, If I change one parts, the another will gone. I think scrap all. I check the upper link and "Sorry, this product is no longer available from us" :(

The problem lies with the power supply, my fault was with the 5volt output, which was closed circiut, to ground.
There is a kit for about £55, but i hear that these modules have a high fail rate. I did however find that the two output transistors were shorted also,
For a new module, sets back about £100+ (searching came back with one at £120 +PP,.
Is it worth it as a 26 LCD is roughly £150 new with warranty.

Try unplugging it for a couple of minutes to reset the tv then plug it in and see if it comes on if not you probably have a power supply problem.

Switch TV on then a blank red screen appear then a green and then a blue which then just repeats that sequence of colours every second. The remote control packed up working some month before. - 2 year old...

turn TV on, let the Tv cycle through the three colours, then using the remote press the menu button followed by the standby button. press standby button again and it all comes up working.
