No Picture or Sound from ASTAR 32 inch LCD Television

My Astar 32 inch LCD Television is less than 2 years old. About a month ago I had difficulty turning the set on, I would get 4 mini screens of color. To solve the problem I would turn it off and turn it back on until it would reset. Now when I turn the television on I only get a black screen. The LCD light is green but the television does not give me a picture or sound. Initially to resolve this problem I would unplug the set wait a few minutes and replug it, now when I do this I get nothing, just the lcd light but no picture or sound.

Gentlemen, I bought an Astar LTV-32BG (V2) TV from MDG in Canada. It is only 16 months old and there is no picture. I called MDG and they say I am out of luck as Astor has gone bankrupt. I called for service and they say that it sounds like the power board is gone. They say they do not have the parts for and there is no way they can get the parts for it as the co is out of business. I paid over $1000. for it and it looks like I am stuck can you help me? The guy in service says that SHENZHEN KDX in China manufactured Astar in conjunction with the USA/Canada. Please advise. You can reach me by e-mail nlleoni3@yahoo.ca or my cel phone 1-647 297 1902.

    Astar 32" about 18 months old. Screen just went black and no sound. No one here in my state can help me as they say no parts can be gotten. What an expense for so little in return. I had trouble when buying. It took 3 TV sets before I got a working one. Had to get my Atty. General involved. I tried everyway to get my money back but, had to settle for the TV instead. What a lousy outcome.

    I have a 30 inch astar that I purchase 5 months ago. It worked fine one day and the next when I turned it on it did nothing. I have a red light that is all. I can't find out who to call as it is not in my manual.

The problem is with the power supply module of the TV. This is a separate electronics module that is easy to disconnect and take out once the back has been opened.

The specific source of trouble in the power supply module are bad electrolytic capacitors. If you are capable of replacing these capacitors, the parts will only cost you between $30 and $50, depending on where you buy them. Unfortunately all the capacitors have to be replaced, unless you have the equipment and the patience to check each one seprately.

If you are handy with a soldering iron, and are comfortable performing basic electronics repairs, it is relatively simple to do this yourself.

Only two words of caution: please note the voltage rating of the original capacitors and ensure that the new capacitors have the same or higher voltage ratings. Secondly, the power supply unit can contain dangerous voltages if the repair attempt is made soon after the TV has been unplugged. Ideally, leave the TV unplugged overnight before attempting this.

Better still, have someone more experienced do this for you.....once you tell him/her what needs to be done.

If you are really into these things, while the back has been removed, re-route the power cable to avoid having it run past the input connectors. This is what introduces that annoying buzz in the speakers.

Good luck.

There is more than one problem with. A it could be the main board that finally gave out. B the power board in your TV is not work, and now you can see a picture. Depending on how it's connect the screen could be burn out. but just what type of light comes on when you try to turn it on. if the green light comes on and stay on then it has to do with the picture not the power if you need help narrowing down the problem you can call 226-2211 My E Discounts. I'm a tech and we work with a Astar TV from time to time.

Television picture issues...


I had the same problem when I accidently hit the remote. If you are hooked up to cable make sure INPUT is on the correct setting -- AV, S-Video, YPbPr1, YPbPr2, VGA, HDMI1, HDMI2, ATV & DTV (see button on TV or remote). Hope this solves your problem.

Google Allelectronics or Hosfelt Electronics for these caps
I just ordered these at a good price but ordered 35Volt instead.
Also replacing 3300uF caps too as they are bulged at top.
Hope this fixes it. Will let you know.
