- You still have an problem on the power supply, most likely one or more other capacitor that are bad but can only be verfied with a capacitor checker. They may not show any signs of damage or bulging but still internally damaged.
-may be more time savings to just replace the entire power supply
Amber light on means standby voltage is high. IF amber light does not go white when power button is pushed the its one of two things. A. No power on command from main board. Usually labeled PS-On. Should go high from 3.3v or maybe 5volts. If not present Main is defective.
B. If the ps-on line is going high then your problem is a defective power supply.
Might need a service technican to fix your set might need a new power supply or if you have any electronics backround take the back off and look to see if there are any bulging capacitors on the power supply
yes my friend check the capacitors in the power supply. some techs call them pregnant capacitors
open the set carefully and check the power supply.always remember to unplug the set before you do anything.
Check all electrical connections. If standby light is off when plugged in, probably needs Power Supply board replaced. If standby light is on (Orange/Amber color) may need Power Supply board and or Main Board. If set was shutting down on it's own leading up to it not powering on at all, may need Main Board, and possibly Power Board as well. If standby light has changed from Orange/Amber color to Green, the set IS powered on, and you have an issue other than power.
