Samsung pn64h5000af plasma, no power, no standby, no standby light


First i suggest you check the wall outlet by plugging something else into it and making it's working. Now that you determined the plug has power unplug the plasma, open it up and look at the capacitors, most are probably blue and look like small standing up tubes, compare the tops of them with the rest, if they all look the same, none are swollen up or dark, then look for any black marks on the circuit boards, if you find a burnt spot, if you have some advanced repair skills and a solder gun, you can remove the bad component and search ebay or other online places and solder in a new one or replace the bad circuit that you found, if you cant find the burnt spot, then u may need to remove more screws and examine the back sides of the boards. If not advanced to do a solder repair, you can probably find that panel or bad circuit and replace it at a little more cost then only replacing a bad relay, capacitor, etc. its not hard and you have nothing to loose by soldering in a new part to fix yourself.

Tv shuts off ramdomly


I had this problem with my LG few years ago. On Internet I found solution how to fix this by yourself.

Have a sanyo tv. After power fail tv comes on by its self the next morning. why


Good day!!!!


That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

Polaroid FLM-3732 Television turns on then off


A common problem with this television is the power unit. Some of the capacitors go out on them within 2 years. You can buy a replacement power unit for about $150 or if you know how to use a soldering gun you can purchase the capacitors for about $5 and fix the unit yourself.

I just fixed my Polaroid 3732 and it cost me $3.49. I would push the power button and the standby light would come on but the picture would not appear. After I changed the capacitors it starts right up.

Not getting power on model FLM3732

You can buy the capacitors on Amazon.com. Search for 1000uf 25v (you need 2 of these) and 1000uf 35v (one of these).

Here is a video you can use that will give you the step by step.

Hi Tim
I got the capacitors from Honson (College Home Hardware) 306 College St. W., Toronto, ON, CANADA, honson12@hotmail.com.. They cost between $1 and $5 ea and there were 26 of them to replace.. As I remember, the bill for the capacitors was about $80. If you don't live in Toronto, you might want to Google yourself another source, but he lets you pick them out of his parts bins and you can get them immediately. His prices were also better than anybody around here. You will also need a roll of 2mm copper desoldering wicking tape ($3), a 150 watt soldering gun, a 40 watt soldering iron and a roll of rosin core solder.

Repairing the board is as easy as 123, 26 times :(
1) Make a list of all of the electrolytics on the board. To order them you will need to supply 3 values for each: The voltage (ie 35V), the capacitance (ie: 220uf) and the temperature rating (ie: 105C).
You should be able to read these values off the ones on the board. There is quite a bit of duplication, so even if the existing one is too fried to read, you may be able to match it to another one the same size color and shape.
2) Put a black mark on the top of each capacitor in the board with a black permanent marker so that you will be able to identify which ones are left to replace.
3) Replace the capacitors one at a time by placing the copper desoldering tape abon the connection you wish to desolder and heating it with the soldering gun until the solder on the board is wicked away into the tape. Remove the capacitor noting the - connection and insert the replacement with the - lead in the same hole as the - lead of the other capacitor went into. Solder in the new capacitor with the soldering iron.
4) Repeat step 3 twenty-six times, check your work often and you're done with the board.
5) Now, cut, drill or punch some extra holes in the metal coffin that the power board sits in so that you wont bake it again, install the power board and fire up the TV.

It worked for me first time, just be real careful that you install the capacitors with the correct polarity and that the new solder joints are shiny and dont bridge to other connections.

Good luck and let me know how you make out.

Sounds like a blown capacitor. I fixed the same problem in mine by replacing it with this one:

If you can do a little bit of soldering, you can fix it yourself. Good luck!
