Question about Mintek DTV-263 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

No picture, no sound,

Set is about 14 months old, seldom used. Was working great when last used. Idle for about a month. Tried to turn on and got no results. Took the set to the store where purchased and paid them $75 for diagnostic effort. They kept the set for a month. Finally when I demanded the set be repaired or returned the set was returned with information that repair service could not get parts or information from Mintek. They suggest the set be discarded. I paid a lot for this set and used it very little...less than 100 total hours. Any suggestions.
Sincerely Jerry

Hello Jerry

is there any light or anything on your TV any signs of power if not take your TV apart and get a multimeter and check voltage on power switch and see if you have 5 volts, if you don't then your power supply is bad, if it is power supply please check all the transistor on it for short if theylook alright please make sure none of the capacitor is popped up or anything like that, please let me know if you find something.

Thankyou

Power but no pic or sound


If the set is only 9 months old, you should call for warranty service right away as this coiuld be a costly problem. This problem sounds like the main board is bad and you will be looking to pay about 500 to 600 bucks if you do not get it repaired under the warranty. Good Luck

Samsung 40 no picture


If it is only 6 months old you probably still have a warranty. This is definitely a hardware issue, and unless you are comfortable taking your new TV apart, I would contact Samsung for repair.

Constant humming/buzzing noise


I purchased a poloroid tv 3732 in may of 2005 from circuit city, after about 14 months the set began making a clacking sound and humming sound that gets so loud it is unbareable. I have to turn the set off. I have found out I am not the only one with this problem that has a poloroid tv. I had a technician at my home that told me there is a service warranty on these sets because the wrong part was used and the part needs to be replaced.

This sounds like the color processor IC is not working properly. If this is the case you will have to have this checked by a qualified technician.

Sound quit working


I have the same problem with the same TV (16 months). So far the only option ive came across is just hooking up a surround system to the cable box for the audio.

Panasonic trouble


Without looking at the set I would think the problem was in the optic block. An expensive repair, but, since the set is only four months old it's under warranty. Go to the service section of Panasonic.com and find an Authorized Service Center (ASC) in your area to have the set repaired. Good Luck.
