TV repairman blew fuses??

I had a repair man come by to take a look at my set and he used a jumper wire to do something I am not sure what I was in the front turning the tv on while he was in the back of it. I heard a loud pop followed by some chioce words from the repair man. he sadi there was some smoke back there and that 3 resistors were blown. I am assuming he blew these. He then said that he could not fix it at my home that it would need to go to the shop and that he would need at least $400 and could not guarentee that would fix the problem. O nthe work order he stated that the IC fuse was open on B+, would that be the flyback??

...repairing any electrical and electronics devices like you said high end television set is in fact no joke to handle and any personnel attempting to fix any internal problems requires a lot of knowlegde and not just guessing.. but because he blew up somthing does not neccessarily mean he blew up the flyback component.

.... for now pal i guess you better find appropriate service center to handle that exact type of television. or the authorized service center in short.. good luck..

Yes maybe ...but he made problems alot worse bypassing your fuse, the fuse is there to blow if you have a short and not harm other components. my guess is that he damaged your power supply and then fixing that youll still have the orginal problem. I think I was the only tech in Houston that could troubleshoot. Sad, but very few good tv men or big screen. we trained are outside guys not to touch much but do slight adjustments and bring it into shop if you dont have a clue and they make some story up to the customer. good luck

99 buick century pcm bcm ignition staring diagram wiring

pcm bcm ignition staring diagram wiring ?????? First off what is staring ????? Do you mean STARTING system wiring diagram ??????? The PCM / BCM have nothing to do with the starting system on your vehicle. When you turn the key to the start position it sends B+ voltage through the transaxle range switch to the S terminal on the starter solenoid ,that's it . Use a test light ,voltmeter etc... With someone turning the key to start check for B+ voltage at the starter S terminal . Plus voltage drop test the heavy gage battery cable to the starter .

Mmitsubishi wd-73733 dlp green light flashing

This may help you if the set has the tiny recessed reset button on the front, those buttons (not the button itself but the tiny push switch under or behind it) do fail and trigger the set into the blinking green light of death--lots of techs call that.

Somewhere behind the speaker grill is a access plate, removed you will see the bundle of wires that come from the front keyboard---there will be a inline plug----Disconnect it.

Turn set on with remote--if it works the micro switch for the recessed reset button (its a joke as all it does is reboot the digital board) is bad---the remote will still work as the receiver is inside the screen unit. Leave it disconnected if the set works OR spend a few hours getting at the defective micro switch and remove it.

If the switch is bad they only sell (if its available any more) the whole pc board with all the controls on it.

I have sound but no picture on my mitsubishi VS-45VA2, what can I do to solve this problem?

Well, today may be your lucky day. This is a 200.00 repair at least, but I'll attempt to help you for free. Most commonly on this set the pip module fails. This is a small standup board mounted on the signal pcb. There are 2 plugs that connect it to the signal board. These plugs are VS and VA. First, Disconnect the power to the tv and remove either the front or rear cover. Use good lighting. Disconnect small standup board from signal pcb using a small screwdriver to undo the two clips at VA and VS connectors. Pins of the VA connector are marked on the board so you can tell which one is pin 1 through 11. Simply jump a small wire from pin 5 to pin 11 and a small wire from pin 7 to pin 9. Make sure the wires do not touch and this will bypass the pip module for testing. With pip module removed and 2 jumpers installed plug set in and turn on. The set should now show a picture but the pip will no longer work. Hope this helps. Good luck, Russmann.

Very bad!! By connecting the radio and the TV to the same speakers at the same time, the TV lost and you have blown up the audio amplifiers in the TV. this type of failure can involve a short circuit in the amplifier which could cause the TV to turn itself off as a protection measure.
Didn't the repair person tell you all this?

It's hooked up with HDMI,but all of a sudden can't get any picture. i can hear the sound. No luck when i hooked it up with rca wires either.

Check your connections to the TV itself to make sure they are properly hooked up. Once this is done, turn off your PS3 completely. Turn the PS3 back on using the touch button on the front, BUT keep your finger on the button until you see something on your screen. This will reset your video settings back to 480i which will work on any tv/monitor and should allow it to auto detect the HDMI option again.

If this doesn't work, you may want to make sure that your HDMI/AV/COMPOSITE settings and inputs are working correctly on your tv. You might want to try and plug something else in for full testing purposes if the above does not fix your issue.

Power light on front flashes continuously and TV won't turn on

unplug TV for 5+ minutes then plug back in ... might work but this usually is caused by some other internal problem that may require service.

No picture but sound

I had the same problem with the same model. If you pull the cover off the speakers in the front , then the small black panel. looking from the front past your lamps are the 3 main boards, the r/h board has wire jumpers connecting to the center board. The set that is closest to you had a bad/loose/corroded connection on mine. All I did was resecure connection(try moving them with your fingertip) and turn TV on and check.

oops, our fault..... We had the repair man come out and take a look at the washer due to all the water in the right front after each load. Tunrs out it was just a hose on the back that wasn't connected tight. How embarrasing. The repair man was only here for max 5 mins. We checked and double checked all the hoses to make sure it wasnt something we did. Turns out it was us all along. Hopefully your problem is as simple as this. Our washer is working great! Good luck

Tv will not turn on

Hi Kate01, If it won't turn on, it'll either be a problem with the central circuit board, the connections between the button row and the circuit board, or something more fundamental to do with the display system. My money would be on the central circuitry, but any of these could easily be responsible. Whatever it is exactly though (difficult to be certain without running 'hard' tests onsite), you're going to need a repair man - you should never open up your TV set. The capacitors they contain hold charge for a long time after you've turned them off, and that can be lethal of you prod the wrong area. Even that may be too expensive if it's a central board problem though, so you may just have to get a new set. Your best bet would be to take it into a small repair store and get their onsite advice after they've run some checks on it - they may be able to have it returned to you by the end of the day, but, as I say, your TV may have seen better days altogether. If this helps, I'd appreciate you giving me an appropriate rating. Regards, badegine
