The caps (capacitors) in the powerboard are going out. In this case, it is/are capacitor(s) running the sound component This is a very common problem in all class and price ranges of modern lcd and plasma tv's/ monitor's. I don't know if this problem has been like this for awhile or it just started, but either way, if the tv takes an abnormal amount of time to "warm" up then it most likely will go out all the way sometime in the (near) future. If you have a tiny bit of will and knowledge ypou can open the unit and get to the print board. Examine this for "popped" capacitors, they will have a buldging top instead of a flat one. Im gonna try to include a pic of them here, if i can get it this time, I've tried bfore lol. But you can google image a "popped" or "bad" capacitor and you would be able, with ease, to diagnose if you have any of these. Usually only one or two. Radioshack sells capacitors (couple anyway) for $1.59 each. MAKE SURE the replacement is of the SAME voltage or HIGHER, or you will be right back replacing those 2. Every capacitor has a negative pole marked with an (-) on the side of the capacitor(by one of the "legs", always puit the negative (-) "leg" of the new capacitor in the same hole in the printboard as where the previous negative (-) "leg" of the capacitor was ( a capacitor with the negative and positive "legs" put in backwards will result in the new piece "popping" as sson as you turn it on!!) make sure the "uf" rating (for example the most common popped capacitor is the 1000 uf) is the same as the one you are replacing. I needed 1000 uf, 105 c and 26v (volt) ratings for the 1 capacitor I needed to replace to fix my LG 19" lcd panel monitor I found by the trash that the light came on off, but it didn't come on. I replaced that capacitor with ; 1000uf, 85 c and 36 v (volts0...It works fine eventhough the volts and the temperature rating (36v and 85c) was not the same as the (26v(volt) and 105c ) capacitor I removed !! Further, I've replaced capacitors that had the celcius rating of 105 with the only ones Radioshack had, namely 85 c(celsius) they have been working great, but I'm not sure about any effect, nor have I heard or read (yet?) about that making an urgent difference. Many threads that I've read people have done the same, so we should be ok (my stuff has been running good for a while longer then most brand new ones!.............(all these ratings ; 'uf ' and 'c' etc are on the side of the capacitor you are replacing and on the side of the ones you are replacing them with)...For all this all you need is the cheapest solder gun u can find (I bought one for $7.99 at Radioshack), a camera (to take pictures as you go to remember how to reassemble the unit) and, once you have your materials, 20 minutes to replace 2 or 3 capacitors and you are good to go...Most monitors and tvs (lcd/plasma) I've seen you have to lay flat on the ground/bed/blanket etc, to work on (screen side down). Usually there are 2 or 3 screws (or a few more) to remove, then you will have to carefully (its comes off easily most times)insert a flat screwdriver inbetween the casing and gently pry it up as you go around the whole frame. Sometimes you have to remove the little washer arouind the cable input orso, just be gentle and you cant go wrong. Once insidet here will be a box with wires running to the sides etc...unplug, gently, these wires and open the box. Inside you will find 2 or 3 circuitboards, check them all for "popped" capacitors, replace, reassemble and plug it in....Have fun becoming an overnight tv mechanic lol! If this helped you (or not ) please rate, thank you!Flat Tv dont show video no more just soud - 145ac0c.jpg

I have a DMtech LCD model LV19XTM - the power adapter shows a green light until it is plugged into the back of the TV then the light goes off and no power is getting to the TV - is this an adaptor problem...


HI
This does soud like an adaptor problem , not able to supply a enough current to work the set, this is most likley to be due to a o/c capacitor in the unit. As some of these units are not very easy to repaire I suggest that you try to purchase one of the correct voltage and connector type ,from a electrictrnic shop. Hope this will help regards Windyhouse.

Hi. I have Philips HTS3115 connected to the TV Philips 37PFL9603D/10 via HDMI cable. Everything works fine with DVD and CD player. Just with the option "TV" there is no sound from TV in the...


"In the past I have got the old flat TV connected with SCART"... what about the present? HOW is the "TV" audio connected to it?

My advice would be to remove the TV as a sound source and get the TV-audio from the audio outputs of wherever it really originates. In most cases that is a Cable Box which can be treated like a high-end audio device for this discussion.

Ever wonder why Cable Boxes have separate audio and video outputs and TV's have multiple inputs? So you can send the BEST version of audio and video directly to the BEST electronics that NEEDS it and NOT to or through anything that adds nothing to the quality. Heck, many TV's are monitors without audio at all. THAT is how I would treat any TV for serious high end listening. Send the digital Cable Audio to the soud system and the 'regular' RCA audio to the TV for low-fi TV-watching like news and Oprah.

LG DP781 DVD player plays audio on the TV, but no video when connected to tv. The DVD player screen shows the video & audio just fine, but wondering why no video on the TV.


Souds like a cable problem. First, make sure that the cable you are using is the right cable-it should be a multi-signal cable. Look for a colored circle of insulation on the metal end that separates the tip of the connector from the bottom of it. You might even have more than two sections if it is a stereo jack. If you are sure you have the right jack/cable, then it's possible the wire carrying the video signal could be damaged. If it's not a cable issue, it's a jack issue, so look for damage on the device's output jack.
