    the red lights comes on a few seconds after the green light is on, with the brief click sound. i do not have the circuit schematic and i am in saudi arabia where electronic repair shops are hard to find. can you tell me exactly the numbers and/or positions of transistors and resistors that i should check and replace? thanks!

The voltages are wrong. You should see (0.0, +/-0.6, and B+/B-) on the 3 pins. The driver section has a problem. Check the driver stage for shorted transistors or open resistors.

The clicks are coming from a mechanical relay in the standby supply for voltage---the standby power supply runs 7/24 if set is plugged into power.

What I would do if you are able is open set and on power board (power cord goes to it) look for and replace any filter caps that are puffed up there--the relay is possible but rarely bad in this way unless a solder connection under it is bad.

If caps are good you have a connection or bad part near the relay that likely is causing this problem.

Look closely at filter caps in power supply:

even one that is slightly puffed up can cause this, if find that and need to know what and how let me know.

My Denon AVR-75 seems to stay in standby (red standby light is on) and I don'd get surround sound through it. How do I get it out of standby?


if the receiver does not power on from standby there is a problem like bad power supply or even bad macroprocessor. You need to bring it to a service center for diagnosing. 10-years old receiver, maybe better to buy new one.

My 40' vivo tv has turned off and won't turn back on but the red stand by light is on??


If the standby light is on and it does not respond, it is most likely to be a problem with the power supply . First try this, unplug and leave the set like that for a few hours. Then plug it back in to see if the tv attempts to turn on when you try to power it up. See if you hear a "click" even if it goes back to standby. Let me know what you found so that I can help you test the power supply board to confirm, if necessary.

My Sceptre LCD TV Power turns on briefly (blue


Power supply is the place to look, look for bulging on top of the capacitors in the secondary side of the main power supply.

C320 only red light goes on, doesn't switch to green and speakers start humming. None of functions work.


HI...

There are failed components in the power supply -to-power amp section.
I can suggest a repair place if I know your area

Thanks

Tv stuck in standby


Your problem is in the switch mode power supply or the horizontal out circut.
sometimes the small CHOKE that feeds the base of the horz. out transistor has a cold solder joint.
resolder both ends first.

Amp wont switch off of stand-by


Both units have a problem with the output section. In case 1, the outputs are likely to be shorted. In case 2, the outputs are open. The low level and distortion come from you driving the speakers with the driver section of the amp. Both units will need to see a service provider.

Staying on standby


Check P611 in power supply. Its a 1.5a 60v pico fuse (yellowish in color). Also disconnect
plugs when in order not to get false reading when checking other components

GE 31GT740 clicks off and on


Dead, led flashing red/green at first, then going to red standby
Replace C604 (1000uF, 16v) elec. cap. It is in the decoupling circuit for the 5 volt supply
Reverts to standby from switch on via TV or Video
No 5v rail because FET MTP3055 o/c. (BUZ71 will do nicely)
Goes straight to standby, after a quick burst of power
Replaced R952 (39K), had gone slightly high
