If the standby indicator flickers,there may proberbly be a faulty carbon resistor in the power supply board.

Most likely your convergence board is bad. If you have any electronic repair experience, you should be able to locate the convergence driver board. There will be two large black IC's mounted to a metal plate and they will start with the letters STK. Disconnect this board and if the set starts up, it is bad. There should be a number on the board. This will be a Samsung Number. Go to and enter the part number into the right box and see if it is still available. If it is not, you could always go to, get their telephone number and call them about rebuilding your board. Good Luck!

Akai tv kit model CT21BD on and off (restart) problem pls provide salution?


This issue is related to a power problem in as much as the TV turns off on it's own.

The problem is consistent with overheating on the power supply board of the TV.

The power supply board of the TV has few capacitors and IC. If any of these IC's gets short or become weak, it can cause the TV to turn off on it's own.

When current passes from electric outlet to the power supply board of TV. The current also goes to the weak/faulty part, then the current stops or slow and the board overheats and TV shuts off on it's own.

This is a common problem faced by many other users too. To solve this issue, check the power supply board and read it with a meter and continuity tester, in order to detect the faulty part and replace the faulty part on the board which is short due to which power supply board

It's a bit technical job but yes its not at all a costly repair to do or get it done by the technician.

You can buy these part at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like ""(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored. Or you can by a refurbished complete power board to save you some stress.

My tv wont turn on

This could be due to a blown fuse in the power supply board. You would need to check using a multi-meter if there is voltage coming into the primary side of the power supply, if not check the semi-conductors especially if the fuse is blown. If you do have supply, then check what voltages are on the secondary side & which supply rails are present to feed different areas of the TV. If one of these lines are missing then trace which components feed this line.

Where are the fuses in this tv

That is the only fuse. Its purpose is not so much to protect the TV parts but to establish the UL rating by protecting against overcurrents and fire.
Next thing to check is the B+ voltage (125 to 160Vdc) on the big electrolytic capacitor near the power entry. No volts here tells you the problem is before this in the power supply parts. After here means the high-voltage supply.
Check that and get backl to us.

36" Sony Wega - no power

There are of course internal fuses, but I suggest you better call a technician if you are not an expert, because you can blow the tv trying to rectify power supply problems. If the fuse is blown, there must be a faulty component behind that.
