Check the panel voltages, and start unplugging the cables to each PCB and check the voltages each time, if the voltages come back up the its probably the PCB that is disconnected, in most case its the logic main board. Hope this helps

Had the same problem... drove me nuts... I figured what the hell!!! I started pulling boards out, and on the main power board I dicovered a visual indication that one of the main capacitors "M105k" took a ****. Ordered it for $1.29... presto, works like a charm! I had to remove both relays and manually rig them to the on position for troubleshooting purposes. I'm replacing them with new ones. Let me know if this helps!

Power Problem with 2Wire 2701HG-B


Sounds like a startup self test. All wireless devices go through a power on self test. Does it connect? You can connect to it and go online? I rarely turn mine off, only in a electrical storm.

Hi,


The sound was came from the clicking of the relay. This kind of symptoms is an indication of out-of-regulation condition on the power supply section. This is caused by faulty electrolytic capacitor. It will dropped the supply voltage and will trigger that kind of symptoms.


Faulty electrolytic capacitor mostly has a physical indication of fault like bulged/dome at the top and can be easily identified. See sample picture of faulty electrolytic capacitor below.

capacitor with bulged/dome at the top.


Check these parts on the power supply section. Once found, replaced it with same capacitance and working voltage which is printed on its body itself. Click this LINK for more info regarding electrolytic capacitor.


If you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't troubleshoot the unit yourself, I would advice you to look for a qualified TV Technician to isolate the faulty parts.


Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

Thanks for using Fixya.

The menu pops up on starting and continues to scroll. The front panel buttons on the TV do not do what they are supposed to do (i.e. Vol button changes input option, etc.)


i have the gtw-p42m102 and it did the scrolling thing and i had the image board dpwb11393-1g-l changed and it worked fine for 2 years.Now it made a pop like a firecracker and i am working in it now.
