Thats a good price as long as they guarantee that it works. How were you able to pull a capacitor off without un-soldering it?

Good day!!!!

That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

How do you remove the 150 114 120 capacitors hdtv do you just pull them out,do they need to be sodered,i have new ones and i'm not sure how to replace the new ones the tv's green light comes on...

Thanks for asking and trust our experience on Fix ya.
Normally we use a solder wick or special extractor to remove the solder. Sorry to tell you something that may confuse you, but there are several things you need to know before removing the capacitors. As the position of polarity, positive and negative terminals, be careful not damage electronic driving tracks, you should not leave any residual solder on the board. You can do it!, But be careful and calm doing it. I wish you luck, and let me know as it turned out your first job in electronics. Thank you for visiting fix ya!.

My picture gets smaller and the picture shakes, sometimes if you tap the side of the set it will go back to normal screen size and the picture clears up but not for long.

Mark,by now your TV has many, many bad grounds and weak to bad capacitors. If you know anything about electronics, heat is the number one enemy of TVs. If you can pull out the convergence board, you will see many ICs, transistors, jumpers, resistors and diodes etc, in dire need of resoldering. It takes a very keen eye to find these. The next board under consideration would be the power supply. Once again bad grounds and weak to bad capacitors are here.If you feel you can repair this, please find a good soldering pen. I would suggest you purchase a soldering pen from an electronic specialist. Do not purchase the soldering pen that has a screw located near the tip of the pen. These are unregulated and will make for almost an impossible good soldering. You will need ab ESR meter to find bad capacitors. Your best repair would be to find an electronic hobbiest to repair this, if you can not! Thanks for asking, and show a few hands of support!

Cable inlet broke off how do i install new one

You will have to pull this board out and unsolder the tuner. When the tuner is out pull the cover off the side where the solders are. If you pull the other side off...dont even think about touching or moving those small coils. They ars bent like that for a very good reason. If pulling out the RF connector did not brake the board or pulled on one of these coils, you may be able to replace a new RF connector with soldering. If not, a new tuner purchase [ expensive] will be necessary.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62725 with the ''blinking green light of death.'' I got this T.V. for free so I figured might as well try to repair it myself (and can I just say did Mitsubishi really have to make...

It's definitely the one causing the problem but I suggest you also replace or resolder the 4 capacitors on the DM board to make the job at once. Just make a note on the polarity markings of the capacitors and the board. If there's no indicated polarity markings on the board then nevermind. Here's what you need to do the job:
  1. Soldering iron
  2. Desoldering pump
  3. Soldering lead
  1. Heat up the soldering iron
  2. Melt the lead on the board with the soldering iron and use the desoldering pump to remove it and loosen the terminals of the capacitor.
  3. Remove and replace the capacitors one at a time to avoid confusion.
  4. Make sure to make a good solder. A good solder is volcano-shaped.
  5. Cut any excess lead terminals.
  6. Make sure there's no stray leads that might cause short circuit on the board.
  7. Check the terminals of the newly installed capacitors for any short circuit.
The board experiences vibrations during the operation of the unit. These vibrations can result to broken solders as the time passes by. Before re-installing the board, check it for any loose or broken solders and resolder as a preventive measure. A magnifier will surely help.

Capacitors on DM Module

I just fixed the capacitors on my WS-65713. I can email you instructions with pictures if you wish. You will need to de-solder and solder on new capacitors but if you check out video instructions on utube you should be okay with some practice.

I would try the power supply first as the ATC336 has a history of the bad power supply boards.If the power supply doesnt fix it then I would think it may possibly be the ballast

You have to unsolder the old capacitors and then solder in the new capacitors. You have to make sure to observe the correct polarity and install the new ones the same way as the old ones one side is marked negative dont mix them up do one at a time and notice which side is marked negative on the old one and install the new one the same way. also make sure they have the same uf ratings as the old ones.
