    I want to know how to check to determine which board is the problem so I can fix it myself. I have some experience in repairing TV's and I have tools and a voltmeter. Please advise.

This is somthing where ether your sustain board are effected or your Y board, The issue here is its going to need to be looked at further there is really no way for us to tell you 100 percent witch board is causing thi issue without the back off and running some checks.

Te problem relies in the Y, Sustain boards around $350.00 bucks to have fixed at a shop.

    What you need is a service manual for this tv if you are going to attempt repairs yourself. This will tell you voltages and what is at fault.



    I would call this inpossiable to do over a email unless one has at his disposal copies of said manual and it was not aginast the rules to copy and give to a client.



    The issue is these manuals are copy right and whenever there is money involved or exhcanging hands for a solution the it could infringe. So its unfortunate but fact that your going to need a service manual. We would all day back and forth with voltages to find out where the problem is at without one actually look at the unit.



    Your a tech as you so disclosed I hope you understand what it would take to fix a tv over email/





    I respect you for wanting a second opinion and your well within your rights I hope they do help you if not you always can ask me questions.

    What you need to do is check for two voltages



    1. standby voltage

    2. High voltage



    You would need to trace this back to the power supply board to make sure your getting voltage to these said boards thus a service manual would be ideal.





    Thanks

Tv turns on but no picture. Then Tv shuts off by itself.


Try turning it on again and quickly press the source button several times until the source menu on the screen appears. Keep trying this method, and if the tv does not do anything then it needs to be serviced. If the tv turns on and functions normally after this wacky method then your power supply is developing a problem....its probably a bad capacitor or TO style diode.
