Replace them, and don't use the same brand series. For the one I presently have in the shop, I plan to use low impedance high temperature capacitors such as the Nichicon UHV1E102MPD (replacement for the 1000

You will need to inspect the power supply. The chances are real good you have bad capacitors in the power supply. I would estimate there will be 5 capacitors that will be replaced. You may change them all, which is best. Some capacitors will check good when they are not. The power supply will be the smaller of the two boards inside this TV. It is also the easiest to pull out. You may use a capacitor checker to locate the bad caps. This is know as an ESR meter. Once again, it may show a good cap when it may in fact be a bad one. This is rare of course, but I have been there. Please replace all caps in the power supply board. If there is a good capacitor it will be the 400 volt 100Mf (Largest capacitor in the power supply) that is fine! Thanks for asking and show all hands of support.

My first move would be to inspect the power supply board for bad capacitors. look for a bulged or skinned capacitor. Even if these capacitors look good, they may be failing. You will need an ESR meter to check for current. You will need an ESR meter for this. Then you will need to check the Mfs with another type of capacitor checker. These two types of capacitor checkers will be a necessity to find these failing caps. If the caps and voltages check out fine in the power supply, you will of course need to inspect and check the capacitors in the signal board. Definitely, there are bad capacitors in one or both boards. I have not repaired this particular model, but the symptoms you describe, tell where to look. Thanks for asking and show all hand of support!

Bad caps can look normal but it they can have high ESR, but you should take some voltage readings first, it should have 5vdc and 12~16vdc when the monitor is plugged in but not turn on.
Post pictures of the caps also, many people told me the caps look OK until I see the pictures and they turn out to be bad. You need cap meter taht can read capacitance and ESR.

Or www.digikey.com, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

Most cap meter does not have the ESR measurement function, the cap can look OK but it can have high ESR. Did you replace the bad one with LOW ESR, 105c type such as PANASONIC FM or FC series from DIGIKEY?
When the filter caps went out it may have taken out the components in the inverter circuits with it also. Check the transistors/Ic, inverter transformers.

Hello,

Replace thee 1000uf caps too. A capacitor meter will not test the ESR ( equivalent series resistance ) of the caps the cap meter will show them to be good but an ESR meter will show then to be bad. Also be sure to use low ESR caps. If you use general purpose aps like from Radio Shack it can damage the board board because of the ESR rating. The temp rating needs to be 105c or the new caps will blow out within a month because of the heat in the monitor case ( No fans ).

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

There are some bigger electrolitic caps in the power supply that can cause this problem also. Testing with a ESR meter while they are in circiut doesn't always work, they need to be taken out and tested with a cap checker.

Faulty power-supply symptoms:

The front panel display and buttons are completely nonfunctional and appear dead. The unit will do nothing more than display the following messages on the TV screen:

Interface error

Interface error! Turn off the power

If a DVD or VHS tape was inserted prior to the error occurring, you won't be able to eject either from that point further. They'll remain stuck inside the unit until you've completed the repair detailed below.

Your problem is a bad main B+ capacitor. The right way to find this would be with a good ESR type capacitor meter. If you do not have an ESR cap. checker or do not know how to use a cap. checker. a local repair shop should be able to assist you in this repair at a decent price. Let us know what you did to get this set fixed?
