Older model but does have one common failure----there is a 1,000 microfared 25-35 volt cap that opens and causes this---only 2 leads that are soldered and a - and a + to denote which goes where.
If you can solder it is worth a gamble--5 dollar part---The part location from memory is C925 or similar. It will look like this but should be black in color with the 1000 uf and below the voltage rating of 25-35 vdc (volts DC) on it---black band is negative and other side positive.
Hi, I have same TV with same problem. I replaced capacitor with 1000uF 50v and it worked. I also saw another posting that replaced the SMPS (switch mode power supply) STRF6626 regulator. Radio Shack does not carry it though. I had to order one from an electronics store.
Go to the following blog site for detailed instructions on how to fix the TV yourself for around 2 dollars! I fixed mine myself this weekend and I know nothing about TV's. Thanks to this site, I saved hundreds of dollars.
Electrolytic "CAN" type caps fail for several reasons. 1. over voltage stress. 2. polarity reversal. 3. over current stress. These three things are caused by other components that have also failed or partially failed either before or after C926. Check the rectifier circuit and or the horizontal deflection circuit which gets it's filtered DC voltage from C926. louie12fix on fixya.
This TV has a common problem. I've found dozens of owners with the same complaint. See the following blog for a simple fix for your set. I tried it and it worked and I spent under 2 bucks to fix it myself at home!
Replaced the C226 capacitor. Using advice from this web site, found the capacitor, and yes it looked burnt, went to Radio shack and for $1.69 bought a new one, put it in, and we were all set. Does have to be soldered in, in all it took us about 1 1/2 hours. Thanks for the tip.
