Those 2 were also my prime suspects in your problem. Since they weren't the one then the only part left that could cause that is the tuner and the IF section but , to be honest ,  it's been a long time since i've heard that one of them has failed. Start by checking all internal connections, a data cable could be lose and that is more plausible.

    Press PSM to enter the settings.; go to Picture using side buttons ; press Enter to select Custom Settings; start by adjusting the Sharpness - put it close to max; then adjust the Contrast and finally the Brightness.

This is the basic guide that can be applied to most LCD flat panel TV.
By Bud Martin
First, try unplugging it from the outlet for about an hour to see if the TV will reset itself since the minute the TV is plugged into the wall, the power supply and processor will be running 24/7 and the EPROM can get corrupted by spikes and surges. Try using good quality surge suppressor to see if it will help if it happen often.
Look for burnt brown hot spots on the circuit boards, capacitors with leaking/bulging top or seals. Loose wires and connectors. Blown fuses.
Notes: We are dealing with high voltage that can kill you! so if you are not sure what you are doing, please have it fixed by the pro that has proper tools and safety equipment. Try to use GFI outlet and isolation transformer when work around the TV set and DO NOT DEFEAT THE GROUND PIN OF THE OUTLET/POWER CORD.

1) The power supply module (There are 4 regulated output voltages:- Standby 5vdc, switched 5vdc, 12~16vdc, and 24vdc).

The power supply converts the 120/230vac 50/60Hz into DC, then the high frequency (50~100kHz) switching circuits convert it back to AC but at high frequency which allows the power supply to use smaller and much lighter weight transformers (Ferrite core instead of heavy iron core), then this high frequency AC voltage is fed to the rectifier Diodes to get the DC output and filtered by DC filter capacitors that must have low ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance), if general purpose electrolytic caps are use, they will fail within a year or less due to high ESR.

The power supply has Standby 5vdc (5VSB, this is a MUST have before anything else will work, when this voltage is not present, there will be no any indicator light on the front panel) which is always on the minute the TV is plugged into the AC outlet, so it is on 24/7 and that is why the power supply will fail even though you may use the a TV not very often. It will see all the voltage spikes and surges 24/7.
This 5vdc is used to power the Processor and the Infrared remote receiver module which will be waiting for the command from the remote control or from the power switch, when the Power on command is received, the Processor will send the turn on signal (3.3~5vdc) to the power supply module (PSON pin) to the switch on the main 5vdc for the rest of the logic and Tuner circuits, 12~16vdc for the sound amplifiers (mostly Class D amplifier for efficiency and small size) and for the T-CON board (interface board between the LCD panel, some T-CON uses 5vdc, and the Logic board), and 24vdc for the Back lights inverter board (if there is no 24vdc then no back light).
Common failures:
Blown main AC fuse due to shorted out Diodes, transistors.
Bad capacitors leaking or bulging tops:
Shorted Diodes, transistors in the DC output side.

Testing the power supply output with dummy load:
24vdc testing: Disconnect the wires that go to the inverter board first. You can use two #1157 (using both Lo & Hi filaments by paralleling them at the base) car light bulbs connected in series so they can handle the 24vdc, this will put light load (about 70w) on the 24vdc output, the voltage out should be steady at 24vdc (+/-2v), if not, the power supply has regulation problem.
12vdc testing: disconnect the 12vdc TV load from the power supply board and attach one #1157 (using just the Hi filament), the 12vdc output should stay at 12v (+/-1v), if not, the power supply has regulation problem.

You should see the lamps go on when the TV power switch is ON and go OFF when the TV is powered OFF.

2) Main Logic board (It has Processor, Tuner, Sound Processor, Sources selector, Power amplifiers for speakers, interface port to the T-CON board for pictures).
This logic board sends out the turn on signals (3.3~5vdc) to turn on the rest of the Power supply module (Switched main 5vdc, 12~16vdc, and 24vdc), Inverter backlight ON (if no back light on command then there is no back lights),
Logic board supplies 5 or 12vdc to T-CON board B+ pin through switched transistor if T-CON board does not get the voltage from the logic board, you will get white/gray glowing screen without pictures.
Back lights Dimming (PWM) control signal.

3) Back lights Inverter board. Its job is to provide the drive voltage for the CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) to give white light for the screen.
This board is fed by the switched 24vdc (VBL) from the power supply module, it also get the Back lights on (BL on) control signal and the Dimming (Dim/PWM/) signal from the logic board. So for it to work, it needs 24vdc and the BL_ON signal.
Common failures:
Blown surface mounted fuses due to shorted transistors/ICs, Transformers.
Bad capacitors.

4) The T-CON (Timing Control or LCD controller) board (on the LCD panel assembly). It transfer the universal image signal of TTL and LVDS signal to specific TFT (Thin Film Transistor) LCD.
This is the interface board that talks to the Logic board and the LCD panel to produce pictures on the screen. White/gray glowing screen when it fails or not getting the voltage from the logic board (the 5 or 12vdc is supplied by switched transistor on the logic board). Notes: T-CON board is mounted under the metal cover shield.
Common failures:
Scrambled pictures, Lines, multiple pictures, color smears/blotches, rolling pictures after warm up.
Blown surface mounted fuse.
No pictures, very dark screen almost like there is no backlights.

5) LCD panel assembly to display pictures. The LCD pixels will block or unblock the back lights from the back of the panel to the front of the panel. This is the most expensive part of the TV, it will be more than the TV is worth.

As you can see, you must have all the above Voltages and signals for the TV to work properly. This may help you narrowing down the bad modules instead of buying the wrong module just to find out later that it did not solve the problem. Hope this will help you out.

Sound problem:
Let verify first to narrow down to where the problem can be. First, check the on screen sound set up menu to make sure the speakers are not set to OFF. If the setting is OK, then attach the powered PC speakers to the Audio Line out RCA jacks to see if you can get the sound there, if you do, then the problem can be in the power amp circuits, if you do not get the sound at RCA jacks, then the problem can be in the sound processor circuit. To get the sound repair, it can be from $150 and up, so if you can put up with using the good set of Powered PC speakers which actually give better sound than the tiny speakers inside the TV, I would keep using it that way, you may want to find out if the on screen sound setup will allow you to set the audio line out to be VARIABLE which means the sound output feeding the PC speakers can be varied using the TV remote control, then all you have to do is to set the PC volume to about half way up and set the TV volume to what ever you want.

Bad caps (leaking/bulging tops). Make sure to replace bad cap with good cap such as PANASONIC FM or FC series , they are Low ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) which is a must for switch mode power supply, and 105c rating. Do not use generic electrolytic caps.

Vizio LC470DUG powers on for 4 seconds than goes off--possible mother board


No such thing as a mother board in a TV set. Here is a list of the PCBs
Types of TV Boards Every TV uses a collection of various boards to perform every function imaginable in a television. The boards work together to produce sound and images on a television screen. When certain mechanisms in a TV fail, it may be time to start testing different boards to see if they are functioning properly.

Main Board

The main board, or motherboard, is the central hub of a television circuit system. The easiest way to identify a main board is to find the board with the various video and audio inputs/outputs. Generally speaking, main boards also contain a tuner, HDMI, USB, and S-video port. Main boards are one of the largest boards in a television. This part is also sometimes called the main module or the A/V (audiovisual) board.

Power Supply Board

Another large and important board inside a television is the power supply board. Usually found in the center of the TV, the power supply board has several connectors that supply power to the other circuit boards. It can contain transformers, large capacitors, and integrated circuits. There is usually a table on the power supply board indicating the different voltages it produces in addition to the signal names.

Inverter Board

Found on LCD TVs, inverter boards are used to mount the LCD backlight. These are smaller boards, usually shaped like long, thin rods. If an LCD TV's screen is dark, distorted, or difficult to see, it can be the result of a defective inverter board. Inverter boards fail when inadequate power is not allowing current to pass through the backlight bulb.

Timing Control Board / Logic Board

The timing control board, known as the T-CON board, is typically only found on LCD and LED TVs. Plasma TVs, on the other hand, use a logic board. The functions of the logic and T-CON board are similar: each functions to digitize the information it receives from the TV's processor. This allows the screen to display images on the pixel level. When the T-CON or logic board fails, the screen images may become distorted, leading to pixilation and the appearance of lines on a television. On a logic board, there are slotted connectors on all four sides, while T-CON boards have connectors on just two sides.

X-Sustain and Y-Sustain Boards

Also known as the X-SUS and the Y-SUS, the x-sustain and Y-sustain boards only appear in plasma screen TVs. The X-sustain board may also be called the Z-SUS. These boards function similarly, producing proper screen images. Although they serve pretty much the same function, the two boards work independently of each other. The X-sustain board activates all the display lines at once, while the Y-sustain board addresses all the individual lines of display. When one board breaks down, it probably does not affect the functionality of the other. However, it may be a good idea to have both replaced because X-SUS and Y-SUS boards have a relatively short lifespan anyway. A failure of one could mean an impending failure of the other.

Buffer Boards

Buffer boards are also only found in plasma screen TVs. Connected to the Y-sustain board, a buffer board works to turn output to the plasma display. Common defects of buffer boards include the burning and shorting of power lines.

Contact the authorized service center for Sony. So many adjustments have to be done after T'Con boar replacement. You can do it, if you are an expert engineer specialized in electronic engineering. If not, please do not make the set irreparable by doing more adjustments that you do not know. OK?

No picture


If it is a LCD, then the LCD panel is bad. If you are getting sound, it usually means the power supply and main boards are good but the LCD panel is defective.

If it is a PLASMA, it could be a number of boards ranging form the y-sus, z-sus(x-sus), y-drives... You need to check the voltages with a Digital Multimeter to determine what is wrong with a PLASMA that has sound and no picture.

Has sound but no picture - just went off


It really depends on many factors but most likely solutions as follows:

For a LCD about 90% of the time the solution is to replace the LCD Panel. If you are getting sound, that usually means all the logic in the TV is good. Since the TV stays on (you get sound) it means the Power Supply is good. The LCD panel has inverters and a T-con board that are bad but these are rarely available by themselves. They usually come mounted on the LCD Panel.

For a PLASMA, the issue usually lies in the Y-sus and the Y-drives. The Z-sus could also be causing the failure but I would try to Y-sus and Y-drives first. This can only be checked by checking the volatages on the boards with a voltmeter to determine which boards above have failed.

Daytek dt 3220 will not power on


OK, your Daytek 3220 is not a projection TV, but an LCD TV.

Second, I hate to say it, but you bought a piece of junk. They have excellent pictures when they're new, but after a few years capacitors in the power supply go bad. When this happens, either the controls and remote stop working, or the TV starts blanking out, or it will just die and never work again.

The solution is to go buy a new TV. The power supplies are no longer available, and even if you could get one very often the faulty power supply has damaged the main board and/or the LCD panel.

In about 5% of these cases, replacing the capacitors will get the TV to work, in about 25% it will get the TV to work, but because the main board has been damaged the TV will intermittently blank out. In another 25% the LCD panel has been damaged so once repaired you will see dark streaky patches across the display.

In the rest of the units you could have all three problems or any combination of them.

It'ds really too bad because they use a Samsung panel, and have excellent pictures when they're working.
