    I have this same model and replaced the two 1000uf/35v capacitors (which were bulging) in the power supply, and now it works like a charm. The replacement caps didnt quite fit in the black metal box encasing the power supply so I tin snipped some of the metal off the edge so they'd fit. Its pretty easy if you have basic soldering skills. (mind you, the fault in your tv may not necessarily be the same fault that was in mine though)

I had the same problem with my tv, but I fixed it by replacing 2 bulging capacitors in the power supply (the black rectangular, metal box behind the back panel). They were the 1000uf/35v caps toward the edge of the circuit board that's inside the black case. I had to cut some of the metal on the edge of the top of said case with tin snips for my replacement caps to fit in it though. Mind you, my particular issue may be different from yours, but I've read that power supply failures are very common with this model, and power supply problems, as a generality, are related to bad caps. Good luck.

G'day Lee, sounds like you may have a 'dry joint' meaning the solder has come adrift, to open the back up will need special tools to fix it. Hope you can get it fixed. Cheers Greg.

Have you tried unplugging the power with the tv turned on, waiting a few minutes, then plugging it back in and turning it on?

Insignia LCD TV screen goes black until hit.


Try to follow the inverter to backlight connections---either a loose or damaged plug (look for any plug with tape on it at the plug first) or on the board that powers the lights a bad solder connection or connections where plugs connect.

My 26" Insignia LCD TV will not power on.. the little light on the bottom right corner will change from red to blue but the screen itself will not make any change.


The problem can be in the backlight inverter board or the power supply that supplys the power to the inverter board is bad. The indicator is on because the 5v standby power supply is still working at least.

My LCT3201AD is plugged in and the standby light under the screen is on (red LED). Repeated attempts using both remote and side Standby/Power switch result in the LED turning green for only a few seconds...


Remove the power supply and replace the three (3) capacitors soldered to it. They will be rated at something in the neighbrohood of 16v. Replace them with larger capacitors, something in the neighborhood of 35v.

Sharp aquos 46 picture disappears intermittently


it might mean there is an intermittent connection or cold solder joint somewhere inside the set.
But I wouldn't just settle on that.
Here are some other things to check:
1) Replace the batteries on your remote control.
2) Try resetting the logic functions on your tv by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.
3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop.
4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-video system? Changed to a new remote?
Here is what I suggest:

ONE: Give it a hard reset. Possibly the software codes in the power management are corrupted. Just unplug the tv line cord for 4 hours. That will reset everything internally to factory defaults.

TWO: Give it the old whacking test. Just bang on the cabinet in many places with your hand or fist. That will restart any cold solder joints or loose connections.

THREE: If the above procedure does not help, then you will have to call in an expert tv tech; OR just live with it and put in a line cord switch so that when it is OFF, it is really OFF.

No Picture & No sound. Red LED, Green LED, Red LED.


If the power supply outputs are good! Then I would say the back light inverter is bad! If the screen stays black and does not come on.

LG LCD TV Standby Light Flashing Red Continuously


I have had this same problem twice in the past 3 months. So far both times I've been able to get it back after a week or two. I'm not sure what works, but unplugging and detaching the antenna and cable and waiting a few days seems to be the key. In both instances, I unplugged it for a few days then plugged it in for a few days and repeated the processes until I eventually got the steady red led. Both times prior to the red led the led would flash red then green and make a clickiing noise for several hours before I was able to get it working again.
