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

Toshiba HD ready TV ct 90158 makes high pitched sound


A high pitch sound can be a capacitor losing power it would sound a bit like a fire work. most have back up on the board but it put more pressure on them the more times you use the tv. would check them and replace. all of them can be 5 in a row in some models.

LCD TV Has Sound, Backlights Work, but No Picture


I have been having the same problem with my LG. people say there are bad capacitors on the power supply board. I don't have the know how to replace them and don't have the money to pay. I can get mine to work by blowing hot air with a hair dryer into the back of my tv through the vents over the board. Heat it up for a couple minutes and turn it off and then back on and the picture comes back. I just never turn the set off now.

HAVE PHILLIPS 60 INCH 5 YRS OLD GREAT PICTURE NO


Hi, check for any speaker switches around rear of set that may have been accidentally switched. Could potentially have a "hotel lock mode"
which some philips sets automatically entered after a set time (namely months) which limited volume settings. Your friendly local service technician may be able to help you out with that one

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.
