Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I shipped this 55 inch TV to Costa Rica and had to build a balcony on my home just to get the tv in. Now after a power surge the green timer light is blinking and will not shut off. Now I have a $5k TV with no one in CR able to fix it. What can I do?

    Definitely, absolutely is the power supply? Can I get these parts in Costa Rica and if not how long would shipping take and how much would the overall cost be? The TV is WS-55511

    Also my remoter control is not working and it is not a battery related problem. Can you find costs for parts or replacement for me in Costa Rica?

    I finally got a technician here yesterday. He took the bottom part of the TV with him and called today. He said it is the system card and the part is $300. Sound right to you?

You are going to need to get a replacement power supply put into the TV. Also after that I suggest you get a battery back up unit for the tv (basically a surge protector with a battery built in) that will protect against anything like that in the future.

But it definitely is the power supply in the TV that is the problem. Let me know the make and model of the TV and I can find the part for you.

    Well the remote control won't work if the TV is completely dead... Or is it a remote that controls other devices?

    Let me know while I look up these parts here.

    Well, I'd say 95% that it's the power board... especially since it was a power surge. This is the part here, I think they do ship to Costa Rica but really I am not certain... you can try the site and find out for sure:

    Part # is 930B879002

    Are you certain there is noone in your area that can service the TV? I can check for you... what part of Costa Rica are you in?

    Yup that's the card I was talking about, some call it a power board, some will call it just a system board.

    Glad you have someone on it!

We now live in Costa Rica. We have a PT-60LC13, and we have replaced numerous bulb assemblies over the years. Now we have a problem with the start up. When you turn the power on, the green light blinks...

I would suggest to read the info from this link and here and see if it compares to your DLP behaviour. The ballast part number is LSB3087A and is used by different models of DLPs. The repair kit is also available and much cheaper then buying the whole ballast assembly.
Good Luck.
