Capacitor replacement on Astar TV

Hi, I've been having a problems with my TV similar to others that you have given solutions to. In short i believe that some (if not all) of my capacitors are in fact bad. Seeing as this repair seems to be some simple soldering i hoping that repair fee's will be small. The TV does turn on but the screen shuts down during the Astar boot Logo.I n your personal opinion how much do you think a repair like this will cost me if i were to take to a shop? Also would a home repair be possible? The TV has a glass frame and i would perfer move it as little as possible to minimize the risk of cracks or breaking.

Thank you for any and all help.
Sincerely, Mike M.

First off mike, dont worry about breaking the glass.. its thick and very strong.. second, yes its the capacitors and i called a shop and they wanted somewhere in the neighbourhood of 100$ just to look at it.. i just finished replacing all the capacitors on the board for 30$ for parts and another 30$ for tools (desoldering iron, soldering iron). I put the TV back together and it works like new, so if you can find the capacitors, swap them out yourself, it will save you big money

We were given the TB110MW9 Digital TV DTV Converter Box for Analog TV but with no remote . we do have other remotes we've kept from our last box that also died.would we be able to use this re

I thought that model number looked familiar. The answer is a qualified yes. If you have a Magnavox or a Philips remote it should work. If you have a universal remote try to search for a code that will control the box.

My toshiba RC-3910 tv turns on but 10 mins later it turns off and it wont turn back on why

it seems, like the problem of your TV is the power supply module, particularly 12v power supply I.C. chip.STRW6735 or similar. I've replaced few lately with similar problem TV. It might have a few bad electrolytic capacitors on the board, as well. Solution: if you are possess electronics technician skills and have all the necessary equipment and parts , you may do the job yourself. Otherwise, look for replacement power supply board, preferably at used boards distributors( or similar). I won't recommend to buy used on e-bay, unless it has been rebuilt. Or, remove the board and take it to local TV repair shop for rebuilding. This way you may save a few bucks.
Good luck,

My LCD TV Series 530 keeps on blinking and would not turn on. why does it keep doing that?

I've experienced similar issues with a 42" Samsung LCD TV. From what I've read online, I believe it could be a problem in the circuitry of the power supply. Apparently, Samsung used under rated capacitors in the power supply and the result is a turn on delay or blinking on and off. If this is the case, then the capacitors would need to be replaced to fix the issue.

I purchased yesterday a 42"

I came across this very same problem a year or so ago regarding a Plasma TV and connection via scart. It turned out to be a problem with the scart lead. Replacing the lead with an all pins connected type fixed the problem. It was caused by the TV not being given the +ve voltage on pin8 and the TV thought it was not a proper signal and shut down.
Hope that helps.

TV Turns off.

iam providing here a generic solution for ur problem as u ve not specified the make or model number of ur tv...
Sounds like a common problem where the Horizontal Output Transistor shorts due to heat, loading by a partially shorted flyback or yoke or old dried heat sink compound. If the HOT is ok then there is probably a short in another component. This can be determined in most cases by isolating each module one at a time. In other words disconnect the audio circuit and try
If no shorts are determined check the power supply for proper output voltages. All this would need to be done by a tech or someone familiar with the process. Repair cost should not be that much compared to the cost of a new set. so u have no reason to worry....

thank you for using fixya
have a nice day

Omnibook 4150 password

One Time, I forgot BIOS PASSWORD OMNIBOOK 4150XE2.
I had to find a way to clear the CMOS on my own.
(1) Remove the memory access panel.
(2) Remove the sticks of memory.
(3) I believe it is the top stick, but it may be the bottom. There are two solder points that stand out.
(4) With a small screwdriver or other tool, short these two contacts.
(5) Replace the memory and put the access panel back on.

Your CMOS should now be cleared. I have only done this on an XE2, but chances are there are similar ways on other HP laptops.

Make much attention... it can be dangerous.
If you want, try this solution, BUT YOUR RESPONSABILITY.

H.P. will provide a solution FREE OF CHARGE even though the laptop is out of warranty.....unbelievable I know !!!!

You have to try and give proof of purchase, very important, then a code is given which you enter in the bios. Then you contact H.P. with the resultant code and then your bios password will be unlocked........

My microwave


I’ve read through your problem in an attempt to find a solution to my own similar issue with my microwave oven. Other solutions (like unplug appliance overnight and reconnect to power source the next morning) did not work for my appliance.

Just as I was about to call it quits and go out to purchase a new microwave; I gave it one last try. This time, instead of pressing any and every single button on the keypad, I decided to press BOTH the "Stop/Clear" AND "Start" buttons AT THE SAME TIME. . . . . Voilà! This worked for me, but sadly, it's now May-2008 and I'm pretty sure your own microwave is long gone, since your posting appears to have been quite some time ago. Well, hopefully others that stumble through these pages with similar issues may find some assistance with my approach. Oh, and btw. . .I got this idea (which worked) from remembering the instructions on how to reset my cellphone. Many thanks, ~paul
