Question about Element Electronics Televison & Video

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Element 32" TV that is about 2 years old and the picture has gone out, sound is ok. When it is turned on the picture appears for a brief time (about a second) but not long enough for it to come in full focus. Is this something that I could repair myself, if the part isnt too expensive I would like to repair this TV and use it for my computer screen, any help would be useful. Thanks Dave

Dpenn1, Do you have solder, soldering iron, solder wick, and a few basic electronic bench hand tools? Your monitor no different than lcd computer monitor in it's basic design technology and operation. Do some eading in the fixya profiles of "budmrtn" "buddymc" "12fixlouie" (me) .. Open unit when you feel confident enough to not make mistakes!! Look closely at the switch-mode-power-supply section for the CLASSIC BAD CAPACITOR PROBLEM!!!!!! Let me know what you find. 12fixlouie

    Yes, look for bad caps per suggestion by Louie, you have no backlight can be due to no 24vdc or shorted out backlight inverter board. Please read below and look at the pictures before DIY repair.

My tv has lost picture but still has sound


The 24vdc power supply section may have gone out or the back light inverter board has gone out.

New TV 9 mos old, Won't stay on after power up? Remote or manual turn on, set keeps turning off after 1-2 second green on and brief screen flash.


I would try leaving the TV unplugged for 30mins so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, your TV should still be under warranty. I know 95% of come with a 1 year warranty.
The most common problem with Sylvania TVs made by FUNAI, the Backlight Inverter board fails to early in life. ( That's the part that powers the screen)
The Tv can't power up the screen and it turns off automatically. Basically called "Protection Mode" so it protects the other parts inside the TV.

Standby/stereo light blinking no picture or sound


My picture would go out after several minutes but I still had sound. I took the rear cover off and blew all the dust off with compresed air.I did this for a few times over several days nothing happened.I also took off the rear circuit board that attaches to the tube with a round pin socket and blew that with compressed air and put it back on. The TV has now worked for two days without the picture going out. It worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My TV is 9 years old.

TV will not come on


How old is this TV?
Sounds like it has high voltage failure.
(If you hold your hand on the screen when you try and turn it on, do you feel the static? )
Unless the set is over 10 years old, I would overhaul the high voltage circuit. Should cost under $200 at a shop.

No Picture or Sound from ASTAR 32 inch LCD Television


Google Allelectronics or Hosfelt Electronics for these caps
I just ordered these at a good price but ordered 35Volt instead.
Also replacing 3300uF caps too as they are bulged at top.
Hope this fixes it. Will let you know.
