Question about KLH R5100 Receiver

1 Answer

KLH R5100 will not turn on; red light w/in on button is on, and power source good. Recent lightning strike nearby, but we have a surge protector/power strip and no other electronics affected. Sound like a power supply, or an internal fuse? 5-6 year old unit....is it worth repairing. Thanks. John Kelley Georgetown, TX johnkelley@hotmail.com

If you have a power surge protector which costed $10 or under,those aren't what they're cracked up to be.I had my computer on one of those last year,lightning strike,nothing else affected but it fried my hard drive.If you want to at least take off the cover to find a fuse in the input power circuit,it may pay off.Just avoid the blue cylindrical components which are capacitors...normally blue anyhow,they may jolt you slightly.Nothing too serious,I've hit them at least 100 times...small jolt.Sometimes nothing.If there is a nearby repair shop,you could take it there and they should determine what is wrong and give you an estimate free.At least we used to,I don't know if it is a 'universal' policy or not.If you end up having to ship it,it looks kind of big so it may end up costing about $20 to ship,weight alone,other considerations are dimensions on oversize box costs,etc.If you send it in too,even if you don't want it fixed after their estimate,they will normally ship it back free.More things to consider,repair centers have parts a price markup minimum 20%.Labor is $40-$60/hour on top of your shipping.Anyhow,I would at least look for a fuse inside,just track where the wire goes in and follow the circuit lines embedded within the board as far as possible until you are unsure.As far as repair,I have given you some reasonably accurate info on the charges you are looking at.If you find a repair center they can give you a better labor rate,then weigh your pros and cons for repair vs. replace.I would rather not make the decision because I can't see it.By the way,if you have some expensive electronics,game systems,DVD play/record you REALLY want to protect,there is one made by BELKIN which guarantees their product with $ reimbursement should their product fail.The smalles they make is 6 outlet but has a $50k guarantee.I already asked them for just in case and you do not even need the original receipts.It is a little pricy but in the long run pays for itself.I livee in the lightning capital of the US and no problems since.

3times blinking red light Sony bravia 40w700c


Kinda points to power supply . Does it start normal for a short time or refuse to start ? Bad capacitors are a common problem in the past , doubt that is cause here but on bench I always run the ESR meter around the power board at least .
You could have a bad CCFL but this young not likely . Did you have a power surge or lightning strike nearby ? A UPS is always a great investment not just a surge bar .
Make sure you power cycle...ie:pull plug from supply and let sit 15 seconds at least . Then try again .

Just some thoughts with out more info .

Sounds like it is going into protect. This is usually caused by a problem in the amplifier section. I would start by making sure none of the output transistors are shorted.

Our electricity went out for a few minutes, and since then the TV will not turn on. The green light is flashing. We tried resetting it by pushing a pen point into the reset hole, but it does nothing. ...


Your power outage may have been caused by a nearby lightning strike, or any number of
1000 different reasons that cause power surges, brown-outs, voltage spikes, inductive loading,
and/or utility pole breaker trips and resets (this accounts for your power loss (a pole breaker trip),
followed by restoration of power (the pole breaker automatically reset) - even plain old high electrical demand causing an overload due to air conditioning demands caused by hot weather.
When the pole breaker reset, your TV caught a power surge.
Whenever a power outage occurs, quickly power off (or better, unplug) any/all computers, TVs,
etc. that are not protected by surge-protection.
As an electrician, when someone loses an item of electronics concommitant to an electrical
anomaly, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike (or the power company provided equivalent), accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360/Nintendo Wii.
Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin MOV protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house surge protection where a whole-house MOV-based (metal oxide varistor) surge protector, or per-circuit protection can be installed with
a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed and/or fuse blown), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.

Your only real hope for an economical fix is to look for a blown fuse, and replace it.

If desperate to attempt a fix on your own, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

Lightning Strike?


Assuming this line is across the screen horizontally (side to side), this means the vertical deflection circuitry is dead. In late model sets, there is a Integrated circuit package which drives the vertical yoke coils. Possible defects: the I.C. itself, bad solder connections where it solders to the board, missing voltage source to this I.C. (often around +24 volts), or a bad electrolytic capacitor in the associated circuitry. This latter often results in a non-linear picture, or less than full deflection condition, rather than a thin line only. It is possible lightning caused this problem, (I've seen some rather illogical damage from lightning ) perhaps it produced enough of a surge to pop the I.C. or a fusible resistor in that voltage source noted above.
