Question about Sylvania 6615LE LCD HDTV
The TV turns on fine but turns off by itself after a few seconds....if one uses the remote or the on/off swithc it'll turn on agin right away but turns itself off again
La verdad yo no creia que cambiando dos capacitores de 0.1 Faradios a 250V. pudieran solucionar el problema, y mas sin embargo funciono, yo tengo con esta TV Sylvania 6 anos y mis hijos la tienen prendidad todo el dia, la reparacion solo me costo 10 pesos, y el tecnico en electronica me decia que ya era inservible porque no se conseguian las pezas (los transformadores que hacen prender el tubo de liliminacion) gracias por este aporte mi TV vuelve a funcionar al 100%, si tu TV SYLVANIA Mod. 6615LE Prende y despues de algunos segundos se apaga solo cambia estos capacitores y realmente se soluciona el problema.

Fixed it !!! Used the approach by Guest; replaced both of the capacitors with 0.1 microfared caps from Ratshack. It's been working for two days. Thanks Guest.

Guest, Your the bomb. I went straight to radioshack and bought two of the capacitors you recommended. Replaced them and now my tv works again. Thanks again

The transformers for the illumination are not bad,that is an excuse to charge a high repair price. The solution is : there are two capacitors across the transformers, there value is 124 nanofarad aprox. .12uf/250V.Check them for an open state.if you can get a higher temperature rating it will last longer.

Just a note from one who didn't read "Guest"'s statement carefully enough. I tried the cap fix but used a soldering gun versus and iron. The gun would not melt the factory solder and I wound up damaging the printed circuit board. TV now scrap.
Use an iron not a gun and be very steady.

The capacitors I used were Rat Shack:
0.1 uF Metallized Polyester Film Capacitor
Catalog #: 272-1053
They were located adjacent to the two flat transformers, are light brown in color, and are marked "WES 124J 250V" plus some other markings. Remove the screws holding on the main board and daughter board. Remove all the connectors except the flat cable connecting the daughter board to the screen. Fold the board over to expose the solder side, then use solder wick to desolder the capacitor leads. Bend the leads on the new caps to fit, solder in, you're done.

Did you ever find the solution to this problem? Wifes tv just started doing the same thing about 20 minutes ago, tried unplugging the device, resetting the sleep timer etc. If you got a remedy I'm all ears! Jeff D

Tips for a great answer:
you'll need to do a master reset of the device
