"AL2671W Stuck in Standby Hey - I fixed a TV! It' s been a long time actually since I did something useful for someone. I got asked to look at an Acer AL2671W LCD TV. Bought for about £500 five years ago, and that was cheap then, recently it has regularly refused to come out of standby. Now it is stuck in Standby and won't work. So where do you start? Google of course! Some results showed that this was a common fault on these TV's. One guy in a forum said 'easy fix, replace C280 100uF 16V on the main board'. Good enough of a clue to take a look. You have to firstly remove the SCART socket block before the back will come off and then the inner metal cover over the PSU, audio card and main card as mentioned before. It looks just like a mini ATX card. It is a multi layer, double sided PEC with surface mount and traditional components. Bad news though, no C280 to be found. I buzzed through the front power switch to check it wasn't stuck and traced the cabling to the socket on the main board. Very close by the socket is C380, this is an electrolytic 100uF 16V. Too much of a coincidence? Anyway worth a punt I thought so I changed it for an 100uF 40V I think it was and re-assembled the TV. It worked! the TV now comes out of standby and has been returned to its owners. Result! Posted by andychamb"

I end up finding an old ATI card (since it was unsupported with win7) that had the same value capacitor and replaced C380, located around the centre, bottom left corner (the left one). works like a dream.

Easy fix. Replace C280 on the main board. 100uF 16v

This cap is also responsible for loss of tront panel controls and/or remote commands.

Hi every one.
I have same problem with this TV. When I switch it on using the power supply switch (the one incorporated in the power supply unit) I can see all the voltages (5, 12 and 24 V) and the front led shine yellow. I can not turn on the TV using the main power buton (the one at the front) or the remote control. I replaced all the capacitors in the main board (20 100uF/16V and 8 470uF/16V), but the TV still remains in stand-by.
* Is it normal that the browm cable is at 5 V when the TV is in stand-by?
* I confirm that the power switch works. I saw the voltage at the input of the microprocessor (microchip PIC16F7) pin 16 going down when I pushed the button (from 3.75 Volts to 0.05 V). I saw that no pin changes (I am using a polymeter). Is it possible that the micro processor is not doing its job?
Any hint will be really aprecciated.
Regards
Guillermo

Hi Deano 1690
I saw ur answere on this above in regards to fixing an Acer AL2671W. Your advise was to replace C280 100uF 16V Cap. I'm having trouble finding this on the main board. Could you possibly point me in the right directions? also, where am i likely to find schematics or service manual for this unit?
Many Thanks

Almost all the electrolytic capacitors of 100uF 16v are low cost bad quality and have high ESR, which causes oscillations on the small linear regulators on video board. Measure the regulated voltages with an oscilloscope and see which is oscillating, change the correspondent 100uF 16v. I have to change 5. Still have a problem, the eeprom information is corrupt, need a code for service menu or the file to write into the eeprom.

Stuck on standby


Sounds like the common capacitor problem on psu. Check all caps for bulging, leaky and venting, check with moving coil meter if available. If good with soldering iron swap out any obviously bad caps on power supply board and tv should come back to life. Problem low micro farads and or voltage on 12v + 5v lines can be cause low power from psu to other parts of TV especially high voltage inverter boards and plasma tvs remedied with caps change to stabilze voltages.
Good luck

Is there a protection mode for this lcd visio tv that can be removed for this tv to come on ?


Hello Donald the first thing I would like to Know what the model number of your TV is. But that's ok if you have a external power supply you could try this .Make Shure your TV is not pug In to the Ac outlet. We are going to see if you have a short or a load on your 12v line. Ok you wont to unplug the 12v source from the power supply board. Fine out what pin is the 12v's. Connect your external power source to that pin, apply the 12v and see if it is drawing to much current. If so check the boards for any very hot items. If you have a problem on the 12v line. This will find the part that is loading it down. This is the old way of finding a load on a power source. I hope this will help some. P.S make Shure there is no AC connect to the TV as you do this test and you have the plug off of the power supply board before using the external power source.

Tv doesn't power on


hi i'd check the voltages on the connector on the power board, it sounds like you have 5v standby, i'd check for 12v and 24v or look for a tv tech in your area

there is 2 problems that makes this tv have standby fault.. so here they are,!

1.)main av board ---the 8 leg eeprom loses programing just under LVD CABLE TO SCREEN -£14.99 from a guy or if you can program yourself 4.99 for the flash to reprogram,.

2.)POWER SUPPLY FAULT IS MLT199TL PSU. (UA4)AREA, SG3525AN (16 leg) Regulating pulse width modulator.

the first fault all votage at psu will be there ,, 5v / 12v / 24v

the second fault psu will have 5v standby but no 12v or 24v this will stop the secondary from fireing up.. hope this helps.

Polaroid 26inch lcd tvred standby light on but power wont turn on. I've unplugged the tv, changed the batteries in the remote. The tv stays with the red standby light only.


You need to open it up and checking the voltages in the power supply sections, you should have 5v (for logic circuits), 12v for sound, 24v for backlight inverter circuits. Look for bad caps with bulging tops in power supply also.

Advent adv32l1 lcd tv when turned on red light flashes for ten minits then comes on


I have literally just diagnosed this fault on my own ADV32L1, except it took much longer to finally come on, upto 12 hours!!

On the PSU there is a a 330uf 10v capacitor which is failing. If you trace back the +5v SB (Standby) voltage from the 15 way power connector (not the 12) it is the first component you come to.

Symptoms were when plugged in the standby light would flash for an ever increasing amount of time, once the flashing stopped the TV would come on.

Acer flat screen tv - sound no picture?


Acer AL2671W 26in problems: (1) sometimes sound but no picture, (2) or screen freezes pink etc. (3) or remote won't turn it on/off (4) or it gives up and says "no signal". Turning it off/on usually solves it temporarily.

My Tv wont turn on, the standby light stay orange, When i press the button it should go blue and switch on but it wont.


Hi, l had the same problem. HAD !!
l bought a universal remote control (5 euro), but unfortunetly no codes for Acer in it.
Then l did the setting up by auto search and YES : there was a code. But, wheeehh, it did not work.
A little bit sad l took the Acer control and guess what: it worked again!!!!! l guess the TV had a total reset, and l use only the Acer remote control now.....

I repaired my Acer by replacing the power supply from
http://www.power-on.com/lcd323-4m.html - $85

Acer would not sell me a replacement power supply.

Note: I needed to solder wires the new power supply to the old one,
the pinouts on the connectors on the new one would not fit the original.
