Sanyo AVM-3289G TV will not turn on

TV started to require multiple button bushes (on the front panel) to turn on. It worked fine via the remote. Sudenly it will not turn on at all. There is a high pitch whine coming from what I beleive is the power supply area. I took my multimeter and measured around the CPU and noted that no voltage is present on the VCC and VSS on the chip. I can not seem to find a service manual to show me a schematic, so it makes it difficult to isolate the problem. The front panel switches and the IR receiver connect directly to the CPU I/O so I would presume there must be voltage always present at the VSS/VCC pins for the power to work. Any ideas for me on what I can check, or further information I can use to fix this TV?

    What am I looking for on the Cap? What voltage should it be? The 3 pin transistor, what should its pins be/look like?

    I would also suspect the HOT or Flyback, but why would the power button act funky and then stop and now no power on the CPU. I would guess the HOT/Flyback failed.

  • Mikeinca Sep 13, 2007

    It looks like the HOT (marking D1880) is shorted from C>B>E all read 0 ohms.

    There is no voltage present but I would expect that since I can not turn the TV on because of no power to the CPU, right? Do you know if the flyback is across the transistor that would make it appear as a short?

  • Mikeinca Sep 14, 2007

    I removed the HOT and now the 5V comes back. Appears the short caused the power supply to be pulled down. Once I removed this part, I am able to hit the power button and the unit turns on, however, it turns off after 3 seconds. This is due to a voltage monitoring circuit that automatically shuts the unit down when all voltages are not present. I have ordered parts (HOT and Flyback) I will try to replace just the HOT and see if that resolves the problem, if not, I will replace the Flyback as well. I even ordered a spare HOT incase the first pass fails and takes the HOT with it again.

  • Mikeinca Sep 20, 2007

    You were 100% correct. The HOT was certainly bad. The Flyback was fine. I installed the new HOT and put the set back together and it works like new.

    Sanyo AVM-3289G. Sounds as if it is powering on when power is switched on. No picture or sound and it powers off within a second or two. Fuse is not blown. I appreciate any help. Thank you. Chirs

Probably flyback in this set, but you can check Horizontal output, a 3 pin Transistor standing up on a heatsink. Also Large cap in powersupply.

As the TV has no menu button on its front panel, you must have its remote control to select inputs.

On the remote that came with your TV, press the Display button, which is directly below the Volume Up button. Pressing it once displays the channel number and time, pressing it twice displays the channel number continuously, you must have accidently pressed the Display button twice. Just press it once more to remove the display.

Can't Turn off Closed Captioning on Sanyo 36 in TV AVM-3658

Hi Hfrohman, This may sound crazy, but, press and hold the power button on the TV while unplugging it, continue to hold power button for 60 seconds or more. Release it and plug TV back in. Sometimes that will clear the settings.

I hope that works for you.



How did you check the fuse? Just by looking at it or do you have a multimeter?

If you have a meter check the secondary diodes on the power supply and the horizontal output transistor. Perhaps one of them is shorted.

SANYO AVM-3289G no vertical deflection

It isn't a transistor, It will be an I.C. with a part number that probably starts with an LA_ _ _ _ . It will be on a heat sink and be in the vicinity of the connector going up to the yoke. Try replacing that. But first, check all the electrolytic caps around it for testing dry (sorry - takes a special meter to do it in circuit) or just replace them. May have lost power to the I.C. as well. Look the I.C. up in the free NTE crossreference at get a diagram of its pinout to find what pins the power and outputs are on.


The DISPLAY button on the remote will remove the on-screen display, so you either have to order the original remote or look for a universal remote with a "display" button and hope it works.

Hi I would suggest getting the Phillips Digital 5 Device remote Model PHDVD5, I have one of these, and I have yet to fond anything this universl remote will not operate, it is outstanding! you can get this remote at a local WalMart store, thats where I purchased mine, goodluck:)
