1st your power supply needs replaced. But you could have issues with the sustain boards and or your panel that is causing your power supply to fail. once you replace your power supply you should be able to power up the set, but if you don't get a picture then you will have to trouble shoot the sustain boards and panel.

I have no picture.


Problem is in either power supply or the Y-Sustain board.

The Y-Sustain is a relatively large board out of which go connections to the side of the display; it's therefore closer to either the left or the right side of the display, has at least one rather large heat sink on it and fat power cables connecting it to the main power supply.

Often there are fuses on that board - one or more. Check those.

if they are blown you can try to replace them, but expect them to blow again - usually the whole board needs to be replaced.

Hope this will help in solving the problem.....
