First things first. I presume you have checked the power outlet is actually live?
second thing is did the spike damage the TV plug?

Is there any burning odor at the rear near the power supply?

Because there are no other symptoms, I doubt that any amount of guessing is ever going to come to the right conclusion, so look at the last option below

If you have household insurance Power spikes can be claimed against under FUSION. So your TV can be repaired under the policy. Some plicies only pay for parts and not labor. But any contribution is worth the try.

Thanks for using FIXYA

    I was afraid of a posible power surge, but there was no odor in the power supply sectionh and the fuse was not burnt, I am looking for parts or a schematic diagram to attempt repairs, or replace the mother board or power supply.



    sending the TV out for repairs is not option, nice TV but not worth putting more money then neccessary.



    if you can help me with any problem, much appreciated.

SansuiHDLCD4650 wont power up, red light indicating power to tv is lit.


The problem is in the Main board that also incorporates the T-con unit. Pull the main board out. Find IC 6201. Next to the two legs of IC6201, find Capacitor location C6212. Wick out C6212. Do not replace C6212. Your TV will come back to life! Thanks for asking, Matt of Martins TV Repair.

My daytec LCD TV model LM37 does not power on.


There is a manual switch on the bottom of the TV. Just flick it on and it should start to work. The switch is well hidden. It had me for a while. I was ready to go back to the store.

Daytek television will not turn on.


There is a manual switch on the bottom of the TV. Flick it on and TV screen should come on. The power light will come with this switch off but the screen won't. It had me cursing for a while until I saw the little switch.

Daytek DT-3220 power problem


I have just fixed the power problem on my Daytek 3220. It looks like the Bentek BP-200AD power supply is used in other cheap brand TV's besides this Daytek : Hyundai HLT 3280, Jwin JV-DTV3212.

At first, my TV would just lose the backlight, while the video and sound would still work fine. Power cycling the tv would correct the issue, but would repeat the problem after shorter periods of time.
More recently, I've started losing the video and audio, shortly after backlight.

I have checked all the caps on the outputs and they all tested ok, using capacity and ESR meter (surprisingly enough) and no bulging either.

This power supply outputs 3 voltages : 5V, 12V and 24V, with a stand-by control pin on the 5V connector (0V for TV on and 5v for tv off).
I have got the readings after the power died:
5v out= 5v--ok
12vout=0.72v not ok
24vout=0.0v not ok

One of the transformers was squealing quite annoying while tv worked, but started modulating the squeal a couple of seconds before power died.

The culprit : one small electrolytic capacitor marked C19 on both sides of the board, with a value of 47uF/35v. I have replaced it a 56uF/50v and the TV started working as new (and of course no more squealing either).

Use a good quality cap when replacing C19. A 50v rated one would be a better choice than the original 35v and make sure it is also rated for 105 degrees Celsius, since it is very close to one of the heatsinks.

As always the DISCLAIMER: take all the precautions to avoid electrocution. Disconnect the TV from power, allow a few minutes for the big 400Volt capacitors to discharge completely, before handling and working on the power supply.

Tv went off while watching a program power standby red light blinks 6 times then pauses then repeats tried unplugging unit waiting a few minutes then replugged same results nothing. can anyone help me ?...


Here's an excerpt from the Sony Manual online. And the link - http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/webtree.pl?template=EN&mdl=KDF55XS955&content_id=68&category_id=11&problem_id=52

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes three times
If your power/standby indicator is flashing in a pattern of three flashes, this may indicates that the lamp cover is not attached securely. Follow the directions in the Operating Manual under changing your lamp that related to closing and securing the Lamp Cover. Ensure that the Lamp Cover Door is securely fastened by tightening each screw.

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes continously
If your power/standby indicator is flashing continuously, and the lamp cover has been secured, your TV may be in need of service.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up green (not flashing)
A sustained green light indicates your TV is on.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up red (not flashing)
A sustained red light from your power/standby indicator simply indicates that your TV is in standby mode. This shows you that your TV is ready to be turned on with the remote.

Is it the power light and not the lamp light? If the lamp light is flashing then replace the lamp.
