Question about Televison & Video
I see this complaint all the time from flat panel/flat screen tv owners.
This is most likely caused by capacitor failure, as it needs the capacitor charge to energize the entire system.
Alot of people think that flat panel tv's are just like the old tube type, but they are wayyyy different.
First, the old tube style tv's held the charge in the tube itself, where as the new tv's use capacitors to hold the charge.
Look at capacitors like booster rockets.
The power supply might get the thing to lift off the ground, but without the capacitors as a booster, the tv doesn't fire all the way up.
I recommend taking your tv to either Fry's, or to BestBuy, have them give you an ESTIMATE.
I say that because the cost of repairing the capacitors can sometimes be as expensive as the cost of a new tv.
The reason the capacitors fail isn't due to hard use, or anything like that.
They are failing because some companies in China made like a gazillion of the capacitors, and they're cheaply made.
No quality control, made sloely for the profit.
Some fail due to cheap casings splitting open, some, the retainer seal on the tops are improperly assembled at the factory, some don't have the right capacitor gel inside of them....the companies used the wrong fromula.
And some are so poorly made that they actually explode like a battery does when it goes bad.
I hope this helps you understand whats wrong, and good luck to you.
