I have a Sansui 42' Hd Lcd Tv. When I turn it
The Backlights inverter, the T-CON,or the 24vdc power supply may have gone out, it will require in-depth troubleshooting. Please read below:
First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

Sansui VRDVD4001A VCR rewinds the tape when you press play
This problem is caused by due to the tape bunching up underneath the flap. Try pressing and holding down on the small release button on the side of the VCR and then lift it up on the flap. Smooth out any build up of the tape by spinning the circular spindles on the tapes clockwise until the tape has become in a straight possession again.
