How can I assure that the power supply unit PSU is defective?

You only need a PSU board if the back light inverters are combined with it. Otherwise look for the inverter board. To be sure it's defective, when the picture goes off shine a flashlight on the screen to see if you can spot movement from the program on the screen. If you can see movement then the inverter board needs replacing. If you can't see any movement then the T-Con board is bad.

Is there a protection mode for this lcd visio tv that can be removed for this tv to come on ?

Hello Donald the first thing I would like to Know what the model number of your TV is. But that's ok if you have a external power supply you could try this .Make Shure your TV is not pug In to the Ac outlet. We are going to see if you have a short or a load on your 12v line. Ok you wont to unplug the 12v source from the power supply board. Fine out what pin is the 12v's. Connect your external power source to that pin, apply the 12v and see if it is drawing to much current. If so check the boards for any very hot items. If you have a problem on the 12v line. This will find the part that is loading it down. This is the old way of finding a load on a power source. I hope this will help some. P.S make Shure there is no AC connect to the TV as you do this test and you have the plug off of the power supply board before using the external power source.

New PSU doesn't have four point connection

You can still use this power supply but you will need to purchase a 4 to 8 pin connector . you can find them on ebay etc. You can also use two power supplies, one for gfx card one for PC. I use two. To turn on a PSU without it connected to PC ( just to use it as extra power.) You just have to connect the green wire to any black wire with a wire or paper clip. (At your own risk. Set pins first tape off and turn on by plugging into wall) . Good luck.

I have 5v andd 12v out should there be 24v?

I believe you may be confusing this particular error reference to voltage with the power supply's (PSU) available rails (in that case, no there is no 24v rail).

Regardless, it is likely you merely have a faulty PSU. You have two options here as I see it: One, purchase a PSU tester and verify that your PSU is failing (you can get one of these for as little as $6), or you can simply replace the 4700's 450W power supply for as little as $20-$25. In my opinion, and that is all I can give with the available information, you are better off going with the latter. Chances are, you are not going to be running a whole lot of additional PSU tests in the future (and it sounds like your PSU is failing) so you would basically just be spending an additional $6 on a the new power supply that I am very confident you need.

Just think, with that saved six dollars... you can buy approximately 1.82 gallons of gas today!

Hello, I´m Looking the schematic diagram for VIEWSONIC N3260W. I need the part number for the POWER SUPPLY _ PCB MAIN. can it repair itself ? I,m Electronics Engineer but it´s necessary the...

I have not been able to find a schmatic for this set either but was able to come up with part numbers for your power supply. The Viewsonic part number is B-00005305 but there is also a more generic number that should be located on the board that is FSP228-3F01.

TV will not come on at all-Westinghouse LTV27-W2

Are you sure it`s the power supply?? Has the LOT (Line Output Transistor) or LOPTX (Line Output Transformer) gone short circuit or failed?? Disconnect the set from the mains, disconnect the PSU (Power Supply Unit) from the set and perform a resistance check. The easiest way to do this is to remove any (if there is one) covers off the LOT case and check the resistance from the LOT Casing (Collector) to the metal chassis / the tuner casing or any other metal chassis connection. It should read quite high in one direction due to the efficiency diodes. If the LOPTX/LOT has failed, the reading will be quite low in both directions. Note!! The aerial socket may be isolated so don`t use that as an earth. Another tell tale point is to switch on the set and listen carefully to the PSU, If it`s tweeting or a high pitched whistle, there`s more than likely to be a short on the secondary side of the PSU (Decoupling caps inside the PSU casing) or as I said earlier, the LOT/LOPTX. To test the PSU, disconnect the line output stage and connect a mains powered light bulb to the 90 - 120 volt output lead of the PSU which feeds the LOT/LOPTX. You may need to keep the other leads connected to the set because some PSU`s are turned on by the sets remote control uPC. I hope I`ve not gone too technical for you, Ian

Tv will not turn on

Check the PSU/ power supply unit not the cord. The cord is never the issue in this complex problem. You may have a blown fuse in the PSU if its a IC intergrated circuit then it needs to be looked at by a qualified Tech.. We only can help you without looking at it, hope this helps
