Hello,

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board.

I do not think it needs replacement, rather some defective capacitors are causing this issue.
Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored.

Better still, you can just replace the whole power board...........

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

I hope this helps.

My toshiba tv wont power on


Check circuit breakers, fuses, and wired connections. In some cases a power surge can disrupt the power board. If you had a power outage and the TV was plugged into the outlet, s surge can damage vital parts.

Why did my tv just go to a black screen?


Hello JoAnn Foxworth,

Welcome and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your questions: I recommend you begin by checking the outlet where the TV is plugged in, or the APC/Surge protector, for power. You can use a hair dryer or lamp for example. If you establish that there is power flowing to the outlet where the TV was plugged in, then the TV will have to have the internal fuses and power supply tested, possibly replaced. If there is no power flowing to the TV, check your fuse box for blown breakers, or bypass the APC/surge protector and plug the TV straight to the wall to test for power.

My tv wont turnon after being off n unplugged for 6 months what should I do. Sony kdl32l5000


First lets try the basics...
1 check the AC cord for flaws
2 try plugging the TV in another wall outlet (always use a surge-protector) then try powering the TV on again
3 plug tv into surge protector, plug into wall then find the house fuse box going too that outlet and turn it off & on once. Then try powering the TV on again.
4 it could also be the ac fuse inside the TV that blew from the TV's last usage.
If its been in the cold or in excessive thermal conditions for 6 months you could have moisture build up on the boards or warping...
hope this helps, contact me at the link below for further help...

Unplugged my 32LV67U to vacuum behind it and now it will not power up. Yellow LED keeps blinking and I waited several minutes but tv will not power up. Worked perfectly until I unplugged it. Called...


That wall outlet may have frequent surges so try another wall outlet see if it turns back on. If it turns on be sure to use a surge suppressor and never plug the TV directly into the wall outlet. The AC surges will kill the power supply of the TV in short time. See if there's a kill-switch near the ac adapter of the TV if there is turn it on.Get a surge protector/suppressor then try plugging it back in the wall. If still no power then the power board is already damaged, you can send the board too me and I'll repair it for you or seek your local repair center.

Electrical surge can we fix the tv?


Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

Got hit by lighting spike blows fuses when plugged in


The television has problems in the power supply board. The high transient voltages in the spike may have damaged all the board in the unit. This is because of the speed in which it occurs. The Power supply has other safety blow out components in it to stop this damage. If you are lucky the components saved the rest of you television and just blew out the power supply. You will need to have the television tested and see if this is the case. The customer service telephone number is 1-800-631-3811. Give them the model number of you television and ask them for a location of the nearest service center. Call them and ask them how much they charge for estimating repairs for you type of television. They should be able to help you. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Lightning Storm/Affinity Washer


During a lightning storm, a lightning strike could have induced a high voltage surge in your incoming power lines. Left unprotected from these power surges, the weakest link ( normally low voltage electronic controls) are the most susceptable. Just because you had power available at the wall receptacle after a storm doesn't mean that your washer control system wasn't exposed to one of these surges and got damaged. On the contrary, it is extremely likely that the washer took a 'hit' and was damaged.Other devices plugged into the same receptacle may have survived that hit because electricity travels the path of least resistance.. In this case.. that path may have been thru your washer.. My point being is that your washer could have sustained a power surge and was damaged so don't rule that out. Of course, that surge could have taken an internal fuse or other component out too..

Toshiba TV/DVD combo turns on then off again.


try letting it sit for 15-20 minutes unplugged from the wall and maybe try another outlet depending on if u got plugged in to a power strip, possibly pulling to much power from that perticular outlet.
