If your FA2B-42570 does not power on that could be because of one out of two reasons: bad power board or bad main board.

Here is a link which will help you isolate the first case by basically telling you how to command the power board manually and checking if it produces what it needs to produce:

if it does, then the only other possibility left is the main board.

Also note that this TV is known to have inverters that fail over time, i.e. the TV actually works, but you can't see image on the screen because the light source behind the color filters that the LCD is made of is simply missing.

Is there a power light indicator button lit when you plug it in? If there is then you have standby voltage. The next thing to do is check the capacitors on the power suppl pcb to see if the are bulging at the top. To do this follow these steps:
1. Place the tv face down on a cushioned table large enough to support the entire tv. You don't want to damage the panel.
2. Remove the screws securing the back of the tv to the front.
3.Remove the back and set it aside
4. Visually look at the capacitors on the power supply pcb. This is the board where the power cord attaches. Capacitors are cylinder looking components on the board. They are usually located near the heatsinks of the board.
5. If the are bulging, remove the connectors and screws from the pcb.
6. Replace the defective capacitors with capacitors equal to or slightly higher values. The values are printed on the capacitors usually 1000mfd or 2200mfd. Make sure the voltage is the same or slightly higher. You will need a soldering iron and solder to replace them
7.Place the pcb back into the tv and reconnect the connectors and screws.
8. Plug ac cord into tv and turn on. If backlights come on hit the menu button and lift tv and see if there is an onscreen display. If there is the repair is complete.

If it still doesn't power up you probably need to replace the power supply pcb. Good luck and let me know how it goes

I have a 27 in lcd from digital lifestyle p/n fa2b-26zd2 with the same problem the tv wont power on after we loss power in our house for 4days. what could be the problem any suggestions .. thanks


Do you see any indicator lights on the front at all? If not, it may have a dead power supply. It can be as simple as blown main AC fuse in the power supply module ( it should be close to where the power cord is plugged in). When the power comes back on, it will usually have high voltage spike/surge due to all big heavy loads that **** down the voltage and rise back up quickly, This one reason I unplug all my electronics when the house lost power. You probably notice that the lights in the house get dim and then get real bright when the power comes back on and settle back to normal a few seconds later.

42' fa2b-42406-mdlt42322, no sound or picture, tv is only 2 years old bought 3.2008 from HSC, paid 1,200.00


THIS IS NOT A BIG ISSUE. THE PROBLEM WITH THESE IS CHEAP CAPACITORS GOING BAD. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THE POWER IS ONLY GETTING TO THE POWER SUPPLY AND NOT FURTHER DOWN TO YOUR MAIN BOARD TO START YOUR TV. YOU CAN EITHER REPLACE THE POWER SUPPLY OR THE DAMAGED CAPACITORS. IN SOME CASES THE CAPACITORS BURN MORE PARTS SO IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO GET ANOTHER POWER SUPPLY. THE BEST PLACE TO GET ONE IS WWW.TVPARTSANDMANUALS.COM PARTS WITH INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS AND CAPACITORS HAVE A HIGHER VOLTAGE RESISTANCE.

I have a Digital Lifstyles 42


Hi,
If everything else works - there is sound and high voltage (static on the screen) - but there is no picture (including no on-screen menus), this limits the likely area of problems is the video output circuitry or CRT filament connections. Check to see if the CRT filaments are glowing. If they are not glowing, check for bad soldering on the CRT neck board and around the flyback transformer.

Where the picture is erratic - coming and going entirely or changing brightness suddenly, with power off, remove the picture tube socket (carefully!) and clean the pins with fine sandpaper and use contact cleaner on the socket. This source of bad connections can result in a variety of erratic symptoms. Check for bad solder connections on the CRT neck board.
GOOD LUCK....

I need a main power supply PCB for my WT323 LCD TV.


There is no such manufacturer for that make. You must give all numbers off the board itself and hope its available. If not, it must be repaired to component level.

For DISH Network users: I found that the Citizen brand remote code #523 worked for the sound, mute and power. This is for the remote that comes with the standard DVR, im not sure about any others.

** This was added to the 32in product page because there is no listing for the 42 inch yet.
