How does input switch on a Sharp TV that is 8 years old?


Well, its hard to say but consider that the TV is 8 years old...

For example, lets just say that the power supply was No Good and the replacement cost was $195.00 and another $50.00 or so to install.

For another $100.00 or so bucks, you can find another LG 52" New under warranty.

Chances are the unit has seen its day.

The main and other boards will need service or replacement and you really do not want to mix, New and Old boards.

4 year old 50PC1DRA LG Plasma tv. TV would come on after several tries, now will not turn on at all. Just clicks. From what I read here, could be power supple? Is a 4 year old TV worth putting that...


It's the capacitors on the power supply, it's a common problem, either buy a capacitor repair kit (yes they make them) and have a TV tech solder them on, or buy a new power supply board (about $200) and remove and replace it yourself (it's that easy)

3 YEAR OLD SANYO DP 32746. SHUT ITSELF OFF, CAN NOT TURN BACK ON


If you leave the tv unplugged for 2 days (atleast) then plug it back in and try to turn it on and if it comes on its the power supply board. If it comes back on it will probably shut off between 30min to 4hrs and you would have to unplug it for 2 days again. All the power needs to drain out of the tv. If thats the case take the back pannel off and check the part number out on the internet. Not hard to do becarefull touching things the power supply does store a little bit or shock in it. Good Luck.

I have an rca L42WD22YX5 that just went to a blank screen yesterday. The screen keeps reading unusable signal. It is only 14 months old.


i had this happen last year, now my tv is messed up again. when we had the problem with the unusable signal, the tv repair shop told us it was the main motherboard that caused it. ended up paying $250.00 to have it fixed. Now, our tv is broke again, this morning turned it on, got the green light, then just started flashing red, hasnt worked any at all today, reset it and everything. My suggestion, if you can afford to buy a new tv, do it, because I called the repair shop again this morning about the new problem, they said after the 1 year warrentt from rca runs out all they do is tear up. My tv isnt even 4 years old, bought it at the end of 2007, now its tore up twice, going to purchase a samsung in the morning from brandsmart. Good Luck!

LG 42 LCD no sound or picture


Did anyone find out the solution for this??????? I have the exact same problem with my LG 32 LCD. I only had it for a year and a half, and the green light blinks a few times and it shows no picture. Not even a red light when the tv is off. The same thing happened a couple weeks ago and by some miracle it started working again.

LG 42 LCD no sound or picture


This is probably bad capacitors on the power supply board. My LG 42LB1DR has a known problem with this and I replaced the four bac capacitors myself and saved 5-6 hundered dollars that I was also told that it would cost to fix. I fixed for under 10 dollars and about 20 minutes. LG knows about it but they dont really want to admit it. My TV was only 26 months old when this happened. The four capacitors are made by Samxon and are 2200uf @ 10v. They are junk so even if you have the entire board replaced for say $200 its just going to happen again. They need to be replaced with a different brand.

My sony wega tv is not staying on it turns off when the standy by light turns on


Mine just started something similar. When I turn it on, you get sound, the red light flickers, then before the picture comes on it cuts off. Sometimes I can spend an hour or more turning it on over and over again until finally the picture comes on. This TV is not old - only a couple years old and I spent alot of money for it as it was a more expensive model back then than they are now. Well, they don't make them anymore, but anyway it still cost more than a comparable plama HDTV. I think this really sucks!

Sound on TV


I to have a sound problem with the W3201''
I too have a sound problem witn the W3201C 32 inc LCD TV. My set is a mere 2 years old. the sound pulses when turned on, however after about 20 mins or so wih the sound muted, the sound does clear up - how long this fix will work is anybodies guess and when that fix goes, what then. I have phoned Dell and they told me they no longer make either this TV or the parts to repair it. I REALLY dont think we should silently put up with this
shoddy workmanship, If Dell refuses to replace these defective TV's, which were certainly not cheap - I for one am seeking legal counsel

Akai Plasma TV's screen suddenly went blank -model PDP4294


Same thing for me. TV just turned off one day and won't come back on. LED flashes red. Someone said it's because a cooling fan went out. If I can't find someone to fix it I'll take it apart and tinker myself. 32" with dvd built in was barely over a year old.

Hard time turning tv on and once on, will turn off after a period of time


Sounds like it may have been jarred or theres a larger tall capacitor in the power supply that goes bad in these sets alot. Its not something a layman should attemt. As a matter of fact the only thing in this set that is user replaceable, is the lamp. Sorry but your going to need the service manual and soecialized tools tom trouble shoot this set. you really should seek out a pro for this repair.
