My imperial hot tub says dcp, whay does this mean?

dCP DC power. The system checks for DC power at the relay (master control relay). Error code dCP is displayed if an error is found. This message can appear after a power interruption or lightning storm. This must be repaired by a service technician if the problem persist. This Is Our Translation: dCp is meant to basically mean the board didn't receive proper power from the transformer. As mentioned, it could be incoming power to your home, could be the transformer itself, or could be the board. This Is Our Suggestion: Our experience is rarely is it local electrical service, never the transformer, and almost ALWAYS the board itself.
Sometimes the board just fails and goes to that error. If you have a small circulation pump, then accept that fate.
If you have a large, 2 speed pump behind the control box (rather than the smaller circulation pump) the fault can simply be, like those with a small circ pump, a failed board that needs replacing. I have also found often these larger 2 speed pumps vibrate so much over time, besides being loud, can vibrate enough to damage the board. If turning the spa off and then back on eliminates the dCP error, then you can retrofit a method to help silence the noise and eliminate damage to the board. See link below. If the board is damaged and know know that pump was loud or vibrated a lot, you will have to replace the board and do the noise dampening adjustment to avoid doing this again.

Power went out and now TV won't turn on

Good day,

This is a type of fault that is associated with the power board, you have to open the back cover and check for blown fuses, if found replace with the same rating,because this is the common cause of the type of fault, if otherwise the power supply board is dead, you know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like, to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

I hope this will help to solve the problem and do take caution in handling the television because there is high voltages in the power panel board of the television....

Distorted sound on my LG 42LG50 HD LCD TV. Has been repaired 3+ times under warranty, with no success. LG refuses to replace, since it is now out of warranty, though problem persists beyond the warranty...

Ur last chance,might be the power supply board,could have very small amount dip current going through ur tv main Tuner board causes this problem.We might be fishing here,but this is the only logical answer left.Tries websites like, to buy a refurbish power suppply for the replacement.

Why does my tv go black afer 5 m but i still hear sound

Possible errors in the main board , it can be due to failure of a solder joint in the set.
Remove the back panel and switch on the TV to work. when the fault appears then the main boarrd can be tapped lightly to see if there is any switch on of the picture. If so the fault is confirmed and you can continue further. Remove the power connection and solder.

My picture went out on my TV but i can still here the sound. Is there a way i can get the picture back?

Please open the rear panel and get access to the main board . try to tap on to see if the power comes back. If so you have bad soldering joints. Carefully repeat to confirm the area of fault and use a touch up soldering in this area.
Before this you can make a voltage probe to centre the fault from the main board. your power supply is working fine but check on specially the drive.
I hope you get a lead to this , credit me if helpful. Good day

Toshiba tv 57hx81 red power light blinks no picture and no sound

you wont believe this.. i tested all the pico fuses, and found them to be ok..tested for voltage to the fly backs, went on the check the rest of the "power board". things like voltage regulator, resistors, any thing that might look suspicious. so far the entire board had no signs of electical shorts. this lead me to think maybe a lose solder joint (a common fault with this circuit design). WELL you mite ask how did i test all those connection joints? I guessed, well almost, using a rubber handle screw driver, i gentle tapped the major components, included the snap in terminals. seems that where i tapped the tv came to life and then viewing those areas the solder was dull, with slightly discolored surface around the solder joint and easy to spot . ..."there is picture & sound" when resoldered all the pins that i suspected as defective. testing several hours now..please throughly check, clean and resolder any suspected joint. hopefully this will work for anyone with a similiar problem..

The picture just dissapears the tv is still on but no picture ive noticed that if you hit the tv it will come back and have pulled tv apart to check for shorts or semi broken conections and found none

You will have a poor soldered connection somewhere. You will either need to inspect closely the printed circuit board & look for any area that has a bad soldered joint or if you are VERY careful, run the TV on with the back cover off & when the fault shows, gently tap around the board with an isolated non-conductive tool eg the handle of a screwdriver, & if the picture returns when you tap a certain area, inspect this with the TV off for poor connections & then re-solder.

Technika tv won't turn on

Hi Peeps, two bits of good news, firstly its a quick fix, theres a couple of chips on the inverter board need changing and secondly regardless of how long your warranty is you are covered up to 2 years on any electrical item, call tescos and ask for an out of warranty repair application and quote them the sale of goods act, i did and got 2 thirds of my money back. after i called the tv repair man i was left with £100 over and a working tv, do it peeps its well worth it.
