SOURCE: LG 42KK Power Supply Schematic Requested

you won't find any just ,

use a thermal probe or thermal gun as heat is likely the issue ,
if nothing else replace the main diode /rectifier and caps.
I find that if I replace the hottest items that usually the fix


if there is room for a small fan you will be doing them a great service and extend the life of the tv.

you may find some info on the power supply from one of these links they are generic enough

SOURCE: Sylvania 6632 LG blows fuse when plugged in

I too had this problem. I read some posts on this site about how to repair it, and low behold, they worked! I took the back off of the TV, and the first thing I found was the fuse was blown. With my meter, I checked the first 1N5406 rectifier diode after the fuse, and found that it had shorted out. Then I had to learn to desolder the diode, which I learned about on Youtube. I bought a pair replacement diodes at Radioshack for $1.49 and four replacement 125 volt 4 amp fuses. The whole repair cost about $5.00 and a few hours about learning about electronics. The TV works great! Good times!

SOURCE: westinghouse sk19h210s won't power on. service

I just fixed a neighbor's by replacing the 2200MFD capacitor on the power supply board. Thanks for the help, worked great. If you replace it got for a 16V instead of the 10V and hopefully it won't fail that way again.

Just be careful and take notes when you're digging into it. And mark exactly where the card cage is before taking it loose.

House power failure. Why doesn't TV restart?


Could be an open internal fuse or spontaneous power supply failure due to line surge

Our LG TV will not power on. No light, no sound, nothing. How can we check the fuse on the power supply? Or could it be the power cord?


Hi Dfhamilton,
Damages due to lightening surge can go to any extent in a tv set. If you can, please open the back cover and check the fuse. Replace with the same rating one if you find it blown. Switch on the set. If it works, enjoy watching. If it blows again, please consult some TV tech.
Good Luck.

Wont turn on but tries too come on,power light blinkink


Internal power supply failure. Was there a lightning storm in your area recently or utility work being done recently? This two things usually kill TV's and other electronics with surges when power is restored. If the set is under warranty call the manufacture, if not, call you homeowners insurance agent to see if the damage is covered w/or w.o. deductible. At least you can get something toward repair/replacement costs. Future fix, purchase and install a surge arrestor in your main AC panel for the whole house or buy a power strip with a built in surge filter/protector for your expensive equipment.

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).

After a lightning storm, my TV will not turn on. Is there a fuse or something on the in coming power that may have blown causing it not to turn on?


Any TV subjected to a power surge will have problems. If you can remove the back cover, do so. Locate the glass fuse. In the best situations the fuse is clear and opened, and replacement will repair your TV. In worst cases the fuse may be blackened, and you will see that many components are burned and shattered. If this latter is true, only replacing the TV is your best bet. In many cases electronics may be connected to surge protectors, but lightning will over ride these devices and cause damage. I have seen this happen many times.Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Got a 47 inch flat screen sanyo. tv will power on get a picture for about 10 sec and then turn off. transformer outside of house was struck by lightning


Sound like you had a power surge that has taken out the invertoer power supply capacitors...these are electrolytic capacitors that will be taken out by surges(it's a veryu common problem)..you can take the cover off the back and look for the power supply board(it will be the one with the ac line cord going to it...look at the cylindrical components on the board to see if they look bloated of have some fluid leaking out of them..this would indicate a bad capacitor...if you don't want to take the unit apart you can take to a shop and have them look at it...note: If you own your home and you have homeowners insurance..it should cover the tv if you had a close lightning strike...just a suggestion

Oven will not light


yes this is most likely do to the lightning i have been to a couple houses hit by lightning that all of the appliances were shorted due to lightning try first unplugging the power cord then replug to see if you can get it to trip back to the normal fuction mode most of the time this does not work most likely your main control board has shorted out due to the lightning most of the time this is covered under you homeowners insurance if you rent then you can speak with the landlord. your other option would be to open the unit and find every shorted spot which might get a bit costly hope this helps

Unplug it and then blow a hairdryer at the power supply for 3 minutes. Leave the lid on, just blow the hairdryer at it from the outside. Craziest trick I ever saw.

After that, turn off hibernation. And eventually, replace your power supply.

Philips 29 inch tv down due to lighting


yes of course it can, you just need to wein a lottery!

It is difficult to say how mucg damage the lightning did. If its just the power supplym anywhere from $200-500 if the spike went further than the intenal fuses and power supply ( fuses after the supply) you may need to mortgage the house. However most times this can be claimed as fusion on your insurance policy. Check whether lightning damage is covered. If not don't mention it just plead ignorance and say it just stopped working after it was turned off.
