    Model LCT27HA36 - won't come on - only red light on in front but no picture on screen. Have tried to power up from several different outlets. TV is less than a year old. Went to 2 different Wal-Mart stores but they no longer even carry the Ilo televisions. What do we do now?

    TV won't come on. Onlty the red lights shows up.

  • ocoeedreamer Apr 19, 2008

    OMG, I had to run to the store, of course I turned my iLo tv off. When I returned, It would not turn on. Only the red light.... nothing else. This is the first problem I've had with my tv. I have had my tv for a little over a year now. I hope there is a simply solution to this.... I can't afford another tv at this time... hard enough being a single parent and paying all the bills... enough of that. Please any advise would be welcome. Thanks :)

    Me too...I brought mine a year to the date and would like to avoid buying another flat screen if there's a simple fix to this issue. Could it possibly be the power supply board needs to be replaced?

    My TV wouldnt turn back on after being turned off. You can hear the power in it but the red light refuses to go green. I should have done more research before buying some off brand. I liked the picture quility but after a year of owning it almost to the day...this happened. They should recall them all since it seems everyone is having the same problem with this TV.

Hi all. I came across this forum after "Googling" this particular model ilo TV. (LCT27HA36) Like a lot of you, mine would not turn on. It was just like lambon48's TV. Since I could not find an answer online, I took it upon myself to solve the problem. I am a retired radio engineer, and have experience in repairing a vast assortment of electronic equipment. The problem with my TV was isolated to the power supply board. I found several capacitors to have bulged. That is, the tops were swelled outward. This usually is a sure sign the capacitor is bad. The ones that were bad were all of the 1000 uf capacitors and one 470 uf capacitor. Now these caps were rated at 16 volts and 25 volts. When I replaced them, I used 35 volt rated capacitors. These caps can be bought at Radio Shack for about $1.60 each. It cost me $10.50 to fix my TV. I recommend you having only basic knowledge of soldering to do this. Just take your time and notate how the caps are installed before you remove them.. Please make sure you install the caps properly. That you put the positive and negative legs of the capacitor in the proper holes. If your board is like mine, the positive side is marked on the circuit board. If you are hesitant on soldering, I bet you know someone who can do this for you. Good luck.

Thanks, CCScan! Your solution was perfect! I had the same problem as everyone else here. I have a friend who is great with electronics, and he agreed to help me out. We opened the TV, and sure enough, three of the capacitors were bulging. We drove to Radio Shack and picked up three 35 volt replacements for under $5. My friend already had a soldering iron and solder, so there was no additional expense for that. We went back to my place, and the whole operation took about 10 minutes. After that, we put the TV back together, and it worked like a charm! You saved me plenty of money! Thanks, again.

I also had the bulging caps on the power supply, replace the 1000uf 16v with 1000uf 35V. Under the metal sheild on the display I also found a 220 uf 16v cap that exploxed. Its located near where all the wires come in through the metal sheild. A wire with a ferorite <sp> ring sits almost on top of this cap. I replaced all that and it worked fine. Thanks CCScan

Ccscan's solution is the absolute best answer for this problem if your tv is no longer under warranty. It took about twenty minutes to take the tv apart, replace the capicators, and put the tv back together. The best part is at the most it will cost you about fourteen dollars, if you have to buy a soldering iron like I did, as opposed to the hundreds of dollars repair shops will charge you.

Thank you ccscan.

I had a similar problem with my ilo hdtv. If you unplug the tv and leave it unplugged long enough for the capacitors to discharge that should reset the tv. I had mine unplugged for about 2 weeks!!! Then i tried it again and i have not had the problem soo far. Hope this helps.

TV won't power up


Likely a failed fluorescent backlight or the inverter that supplies the high voltage to it. I'd like to suggest a potential source for parts or service but the earlier authorized service company was Initial Technology and their webiste is no more so the company is probably defunct. Ilo was sold only by Wal-Mart and our 32HD failed after 6 weeks and when returned after several weeks from repair, had the LCD panel damaged which didn't show up until we tried using it full screen and saw the flaw.
You may have some luck here:
Possible Ilo parts source
Otherwise, I'm afraid your friend is just another victim of a Wal-Mart junk supplier.

This TV is using a power supply MLT168A that has defective capacitors. Replacing the capacitors might fix it, but in some cases the failure is more then capacitors.

Junk tv


My ilo 27" tv did the same thing (red light on front but would not turn on) and after much frustration looking around on the net I finaly cracked it open. After removing enough screws to remove the back the first thing I saw was the main power board. This board has quite a few capacitors on it and I found 4 of these that had bulging tops. 3 were 1000uf/16volt and 1 was 470uf/16volt. I disconnected all wire connectors from this board and replaced them with parts from radio shack PN 272-1032 and 272-1030. The voltage rating of these are different but ok if larger than the original part. It fired right up when I put it all put back together

Ilo lct27ha36


same thing happened to my ilo. There are four capacitors that are bad on the power board. You can usually tell its bad because at the top it bulges out. Here is what you need to do. Unplug the tv, open up your ilo find the power board ( the power cord plugs into it). Then find the capacitors that are bad (they are the around things usually in blue color) and remove them by soldering the other side. On mine there where three 1000uf 16v and one 470uf 35v. Those are the ones that need replacing. I replaced them with a higher voltage rating 1000uf 35v and 470uf 50v. All you need to do is solder them back on but make sure you solder them back the right way (plus goes to plus on the board or you will be in trouble). I found the capacitors at radio shack for about 1.50 a peice. If you dont know how to solder look it up on youtube. If that does not work there might be couple more bad capacitors that need replaceing just need to find them and you can tell by a small bulging top.

I having the same problem. Called the company $80 for a new remote. I only paid $300 for the TV. The company said they have not given out the code for the television. What a CROC! Like the TV, but probably won't buy another.
