OK it may only be a fuse... he said hopefully :) .. these sets have a switched mode power supply... it has a Mains fuse... check this... otherwise I would bet that the SMPSU has failed.. a common cause.. if ya a dab hand at this sorta thing then get a new PSU and swap 'em out.. otherwise find a reputable serviceman obtain a "Quote" and proceede from there.

Remember IF ya choose to work on this set yourself be carefull and use an Isolation Transformer at all times. GL

I have an Apex Digital TV Converter box # DT250A. Today, all of a sudden my TV screen went greenish and then the picture on my TV went out ( static looking screen ). The light that's on my Converter Box...


The DT250 likely has one or more bad 470uf 25v capacitors. You should replace all four. Look at some of these youtube videos for how do do the replacement.

Order 4 new 470uf 25v capacitors from digikey.com P/N P10274-ND

Use first class mail as your shipping method. Will be under 10 dollars total.

Hdmi interface not working on the ScreenPlay 61md10


I've had that problem before and it turned out that, although it looked absolutely fine, it was my HDMI cable which was not working. After getting a high quality cable, the problem went away.

Convergence and wavey picture problem


Actually you have 3 problems. The two that you listed and the third which is: Apex does not support their units. Ask anyone who has tried to get any service. Your problem sounds like a bad digital convergence box. I fix this problem several times a week but on name brand sets. Cost is usually less than $100 for the part. Some problems with Apex equipment can be fixed if the part is a common off the shelf part. That is not the case with your problem. Apex equipment is cheap for a reason. All posts that I have read say that they do not last long and you can't get parts. That has also been my experience as a technician. We don't even accept Apex units for repair anymore. Next time spend the extra money to buy a name brand unit and it will more than likely be repairable.
