Question about iLO 2600 Television
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.
