Someone bypassed a fuse and i think it blew the capacitors

I bought tv and was told it stayed in standby mode as there was no remote. igot it home plugged it in and no light then boom a bright flash and a sizzling noise came from the back.i pulled it apart and found that the dog bastard had put a bit of wire in to bypass one of the fuses on the power supplynot stopping to think if it was gonna burn my house with me and my children inside.but anyway ive noticed that the 4 large capacitors on the power supply board seem to be bulged on the top but im not sure as im new to this. any help would be good and can i just take the board in and get it tested and if it is the capacitors from the the bodgy fuse what could cause this

    but if they bypassed the fuse because it kept blowing what would make the fuse blow and also should the tops of the 4 main capacitors be flat or have a slight bulge

My first guess would be the bit of wire bypassing the fuse.

    too much amperage going thru it for example a 30 amp fuse is designed to blow when anything above 30 amps passes thru it.

I have a Panasonic viera plazma tv &shorted it blowing fuses which I've replaced.the red standby light comes on but it won't turn on using the controls on the tv itself.do I need a remote to get it off...

My understanding is that you shorted the power board, right? If this is the case, see if you can locate the area of the "damage". Many times there is more than one fuse on the power board. Figure out if you damaged the primary or secondary circuit. Usually there are borders (broken lines) to indicate them. Check all the diodes using diode mode of your tester. Then start checking resistors (for diodes and resistors you don't need to desolder them), then desolder each capacitor and measure capacitance of each. I am sure one of the capacitors is bad. Usually the TV will have standby mode as the result of that or blinking lights.

Akai TV remote is not working correctly

I don't think the Akai remote is designed to work with cable or satellite service. I have to use both remotes & I have Direct TV.

Try unplugging the TV for a few minutes then plug it in and try the remote again. I had the same problem shortly before my Akai LCT2721AD quit working altogether. Three 1000uF capacitors blew in the power supply. Bought 3 new ones and replaced the blown ones myself rather than pay over $100 for a new power supply. Works fine now.

My matsui tv 28WNO5(A) will not turn on from standby

Try pressing the small reset button on the back, it works, and you will not loose any stored information which caused the unit to go in the stand by mode.

or
Have you tried turning it off for an hour and then turning it back on. This happens to me quite often and leaving it off for a while ususally allows it to come back on. Also have you tried to press the TV/AV button on the remote as sometimes it switches to TV mode when its on standby and then standby won't work as its on TV mode and needs to go back on to AV mode. Basically just press the AV button on the digibox remote and then try standby.

or
if the batteries are removed and left for about 20 minutes before being replaced again, everything works as it should.
or
if any of the above suggestions does not work then you have to open the unit and on the main board of the tv there is a thin mini tube light like component called fuse you will have to replace that fuse .the fuse is very very cheap and you can easily get it at any electronics shop.and if still the unit does not work then there is a major fault in the power supply board and should be taken to the service center for diagnosing the fault that it is repairable or not.but i hope the above information provided will definately help you to solve your problem.

Doesn't stay on

You probably just need a new main power board. You can buy them from Vance Baldwin, Probably $125 to $150 with S&H. Adjusments are needed with a digital voltmeter while the board is operating in the set. Some techs have told me that the capacitor failure sometimes damaged one of the switching regulator ICs and that those parts were not available. Before we worked out that a special type of capacitor was needed, the capacitors we installed were getting very hot and we knew that they were not going to last long.

Trutech tv model #PLV16260

Heres what mine did:no picture no sound, when i hit the remote the indicator light went out....piece of crap is six months old, cant find any info on it, cant get a hold of anyone at Trutech.
So i took it apart, on the board that the power cord is attached to, i found six blown capacitors. There is also a big ass one in the middle of that board which looked ok but blew out the bottom.I replaced them, and im watching it as i type.
Its fairly easy but if your not comfortable soldering on a cheap circuit board, take it to someone.
I hope it helps, i think this repair will fix the other Trutech models with the same problems.

SHARP 29" TV switching off to Standby

have you tried changing the batteries just to elimate this problem

change them

sometimes if the batteries are low in electronic devies, they send a wek signal to its receiver (your tv),

your tv gets confused and then switches itself to standby

if you have changed the batteries and this problem still persists

it can only then be th PSU or power supply unit, take it to your local tv repair shop of mastercare somewhere like that, its going to be cheaper to get it repaired than replacing the whole tv

PSU'S generally 20 to 50 pounds depending on model

don't deo it yourself though unless you've got a capacitor discharger (or a nice 25KV will be on its way to your body)

hop this helps mate, let me know how you get on
