Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a 32' HCT brand LCD TV. I bought it about two years ago. I am having a problem with the power. Recently the TV started having trouble turning on. The green power light comes on as normal but no picture, sound, options, lights, or anything. Just a black screen with the green power light on. I have to unplug it, wait a few minutes and sometimes repeat that several times before it works as normal. Is this a common problem, or do I have a "special" TV?

It is more likely to bad dying power supply due to bad DC filter caps, that will be the first place to look.
You can learn and see about TV and bad caps in my albums, it is very common problem after two years of plugging into the wall since it is alway running 24/7 even if the TV is not ON!

I HAVE A 32" VIZIO LCD I PURCHASED 2 YEARS AGO.


You should buy a sodering kit and remove the buldging capacitors yourself. Find a local electronics store, I used Radioshack, and see if they can match the capacitors. I had this happen with my Samsung lcd about a year ago and just help another friend with the same issue yesterday. The sodering is not as hard as you'd think. The capacitors should be under $5 v. paying a few hundred for the power board.

I have a HCT 32" TFT LCD HD TV, model number HLD


Your back light is probably out - it may have a bad inverter. Shine a flashlight on the screen and see if you can detect any color or images. If so, then the back light is out. Inspect the inverter for any bulging capacitors. They must be flat on top - if they bulge at the top, then that capacitor is bad.

I have an HCT LCD TV. It is an 32'' and I can't get the stand off.


"S" = Stand.

Remove the 4 screws and pull the stand straight off the bottom.

Take it back... That is either the digital board or the logic main board and that's way too soon for you to be having those problems.. Heck a Poloroid usually lasts a couple of years before having these type of severe problems, and even that is sooner than most major brands... You still have warranty - I STRONGLY recommend you take it back..
