Where is the diode located on the board if you're looking at the side with all the components with the big capacitors on the top? That would mean that the power connector is at the bottom right.

My emerson lc320em1f tv won't turn on.


Calm down, Calm down! Your power supply board is at fault. On the power supply, you have a bad diode. Location of this diode is D639. Replace it with an NTE 5087A. Thanks for asking, Matt of Martins TV Repair.

I recently had my tv repaired for diode problem,it is a samsung LNT4066FX/XAA flat screen.Now instead of clicking sound and not turning on the power bar at bottom stays blue and the picture has color...


Well the capacitor problem usually causes power up problems. If your tv comes on now it sounds like you dont have the same problem.Vertical lines are usually caused by bad flat panel or dirty ribbon cable contacts on flat panel connections.

I have a 26" Sylvania LCD TV that won't power up. Only a rapid flashing amber power light. Is that the light source gone bad - burned out ? Thanks MC


There is a diode located on the power supply of this set that has been a common problem. The location number of the diode is d558. If it is shorted then it will need to be replaced. There could also be other possibilities but this the most common problem that I have found in my notes. If this is the problem, a repair shop may get any where from $50-$150 to fix it. If you did it yourself, the diode would only cost a couple of dollars.

My tv does not turn on


Hi,

This problem is likely a failed power supply. This is a known issue with this model TV. It will normally occur soon after the warrenty expires. It can also be caused by a voltage surge produced by a power failure. You might wish to unplug the TV for an hour or more. If this power reset does not allow the TV to turn on component failure is indicated. These sets are assembled using the wave soldering process they are known for having cold solder connections. The safety circuitry shuts the TV set down or will keep it from turning on when it detects a problem. This model of TV has over 2,000 parts, which includes millions of transistors inside the integrated circuits. The capacitors will change value, leak and become defective. Resistors will change value and burn. Diodes and IC can go bad. This may have a domino effect and cause other parts to fail. Replacing one defective part may make the TV operate for a short time but the part will fail again if the parts that caused the failure to begin with are not replaced. The only way to know for sure which parts that are no longer within factory specs and for a proper repair all the electronics must be diagnosed by someone with the correct electronic test equipment specifically designed for TV service and the skills to use the test equipment. I wish I could tell you there was a quick fix or button to push that would fix the TV but that is not the case or the solution needed to get the TV operating correctly.

Let me know, if need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Tv turns off a second after I turn it on


Just repaired this actual model.
remove the back of the tv. Loof at the circuit board on the left as you face the back of the tv. In the middle there is a diode that burns out. Remove all ov the screws holding this circuit board to the tv. Carefully unplug all of the connections and flip the board over. See that the number on the back side of the board by the burnt diode is d1940. Have the diode replaced by a competent repairman and oberve polarity. put everthing back as you found it and try the tv. You may want to have a fire extiguisher nearby.

TV wil not turn on at all


My Protron PLTV - 3250 just went out yesterday. By this I mean it turned on and went out in a few minutes. I left it off and today it completely died. I opened it up because I always think I can repair things. So what I found is a burn mark on the curcuit board of the power supply which is located inside the tv. On the other side of the burn mark is a (zener diode), this diode is burned out and therefore the power supply is not working. I am going to Radio Shack tomorrow Monday Aug. 31, 2009. The diode is very tiny but should be easy to replace with a sauder gun because this diode has place holders to hold the tiny diode in. If this does not work at the top of this page is a link that says power supplies for your tv for sale. I am going to check it out. Anyway just so you all who know about computers= the tv power supply is similar to the power supply on a computer. Just like a computer power supply comes in a case that you install into your computer and then you just connect the connectors to your motherboard and drives. Well in the tv the power supply is stand alone also, you can disconnect the wire connections in the tv and replace the power supply. If you notice the power cable to your tv is the same as a computer power cable, so the power supply in the tv is much the same as a computer power supply. I hope this helps you.

Comments: Aug 31, 2009- Hey the link TODDTHETVMD is posting has a picture of the Protron PLTV - 3250 power supply. It looks exactly like that in my tv. Buy it. All you have to do is remove screws and and cables and put them back and you are all good to go. It is as easy as replacing parts and components in your computer. Thanks TODDTHETVMD.
