Question about Televison & Video
Will not turn on. It started with 19 to 20 attempts, now it will not fire up.at all.
If you are electronically inclined, replace the three 1000uf 16v
electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board located above the
power switch. They are likely bulging out at the top and failed. They
are the three in a row at the top - center of the board, located
between the two black heat sinks. Make sure you get caps rated for 105c
degrees! I recommend replacing them with 1000uf 25v caps. 35v caps will
work but might be a tight fit as they are larger diameter.
Should cost you about $8 for the parts shipped. You can get them from partsexpress or digikey or any good local electronics store. Your local radio shack may have them but they won'y be 105c and thus may not last long.
Not handy, ask around, there is usually some electronic tweaker guy around that will install them for a few bucks.
This has solved the turns on / then off problem every time in the 3 I've done.
