Toshiba Tv won't turn on


if the power light doesnt come on chances are a shorted component on the power supply has blown the fuse. If so replacing the fuse will most likley only result in the fuse blowing again. Replacing the power supply would be the best bet. You can get one from www.tvcircuitboards.com

I have a 1 year old Sanyo Vizon HDTV and was watching a show when it suddenly just shut off and would not go back on again. No storms or any other power surges and it is hooked up to a real surge...


Hello
If there is no power indicator LED lights up when the set is sitched ON, the power regulator section inside your TV is faulty. There is a fuse [glass cartridge type]; on the power regulator board. If this fuse blows OFF the set won't switvh ON of the front power light won't light up. Check this fuse first. You can locate it at its power switching regulator board inside, where the AC power goes straight to it after a filternig circuit. If the fuse is blown out, replace ti with same rating. It ratings will be marked either on its edge rims of on its body by colour code lines. Replace the the fuse; if it has blown out, and switch ON the TV. if the replaced fuse also gets failed, do not put any fuse after, the power supply section has some short with it. It is best to replace the power supply board as a card absis; rather than making "surgery" to it. Some components in it will be very difficult to get too. You can buy a new power board from /Vizio Authorised Service Center at your town. OK.

Tv shuts off when you turn it on again it will play a minute


I think this might be bad/swollen capacitors in your power supply, or something odd in the +5VDC circuits of the power supply, but I am posting all of the things I have found so far with these TVs.

Here are few possible solutions:
If you have no red light and you have a Megmeet MLT386 power supply, check these parts:
1) Swollen caps on the PS secondary circuit (may cause the red light blink or shutdown problems).
2) Blown fuse F1 (5A/250V) this is caused by a shorted FET at QA1 (20N60), you may also find that SMT cap CX23 is burned up (.001uf) which is in parallel with diode DA2 which may be damaged/shorted, replace these components.
If the power LED goes from red to green when powered up but no picture, then it might be lost +24VDC from the power supply:
3)Check fuse F2 (3.15A/250V, I put a 5A in), if it is blown, replace FET at QA2A (9N50C), replace QA2 as well (9N50C). Check SMT resistors at R233,R234,R235,R236 (.47 ohm). If open, replace with .1 ohm 1W or 2W resistor (easier to source). Also replace SMT transistor QF1 (2X4 or 2N4401 NPN transistor). And replace diodes at DS2 and DS1 (HER207), DS2 was shorted, DS1 was ok but I replaced it anyway.

I dont know as much about the Megmeet MLT169A, but it has similar problems and similar components.
4) I had to replace all of the capacitors in the secondary circuit (there are six in a 3x3 row marked EC9 (1000uf35V),EC10(1000uf35V),EC14(470uf35V) and EC18,EC19,EC20 (all 1000uf35V).

OK for the Megmeet MLT169A with red flashing LED when turned on we found that IC7 was bad. This is an SMT component on the solder side of the power supply. It is a 4407P (P channel 30V MOSFET). For testing purposes, we jumped across it to feed +5V to the TV permenently instead of allowing +5V to go into standby.

Can't find 2A 125v fuse replacement for on-off will 250v be OK?


There is no difference between a 125v and 250v fuse. The most important thing is the 2Amp. This fuse is probably the line fuse and could be the only trouble and may have blow with a line surge. Make sure the 2A you use is a Fast Blow Type. If it does blow again you most likely have a internal power supply failure.

TV does not power on. No Stand by light either.


Your power supply is shorted out. Get a good repairman to fix it..."exspensive" repair if you screw it up.
