Serial ports are not meant for video only data communications if it is VGA port then your fine but the red white and yellow RCA connections are what you should be using this cable can be picked up at any local radio shack or walmart pretty cheap. As for the computer if the tv has a vga port connect it by that these vga are also cheap and can be found at radio shack or staples.

I hope that you have gotten this resolved, but if not, or if you have any other questions, here are the codes and some simple steps to run through.


1. Hold down the clear TV button until all lights light up at the top of the remote
2. Punch in a 3 digit code (provided below)
3. Press the # (POUND) button
4. Try powering the tv on/off, and the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over from step 1 with a different code

The power supply for HDTV is the board where the AC plug goes into. It is a very sensitive circuitry that can be easily damaged. Under normal circumstance it is very reliable. This is how they work basically. The AC current is rectified (converted into DC). Then filtered by means of large capacitors. The DC Voltage ( about 180 DC volts from 120 AC) is supplied to power transistors (usually FET or field effect transistor). The Transistor are switched at high frequency( usually over 100KHZ or 100,000 times per second) Which drives the transformers to step down the voltage. When the TV is off there is a standby voltage which is on at all times, and it is typically 5V. This standby voltage is the first thing a technician check for when troubleshooting power supply problem. When the TV is turned on everything in the power supply comes to life supplying power to every circuit boards which are of diffrent voltages such 12V, 24V etc. HDTV power supplies are very complicated using the latest technology employing power saving chips that minimize power usage on standby mode. Explaining the it in great detail would require many pages but this is just the basic.

Definitely the Digital Board. You will have to take the number (s) off the board and do an INTERNET search for it. That's the only way for that make.

If the cable comes from the dish,then unless you have a freesat tv that will not connect into your tv.The cable from a dish normaly connects into a sky box or cable box.You need a cable from an aerial to connect into the tv.

Howzit Brother.

I had the same problem, but managed to repair it myself! There is no need to purchase a new
Power Supply! You can service the faulty PCB yourself, or give it to a Tehnician to service for you.
If you want to try service to yourself, here is how,

On the PCB marked QPWB11326-1B-4 you will need to do the following<

Replace the following Capacitor's, CS704(Most important one), CS705, CS706, CS707, CS708, CS713, CS715.
Replace the TOP210PFI IC marked ICS02
Replace the PC123 OPTO marked ICS03
Replace the TL431 Shunt Regulator marked ICS04

This solution should work! email me on [email protected] if you have any other requests!

Reuben. On the Power Supply PCB marked QPWB11326-1B-4 you'll find a Component marked,
TH701 just above the Fuse! Remove this component and bridge it out!
This should solve your problem! Contact me on [email protected]
