Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; to which you want set-up codes; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts.

Any LCD tv will be compactable to DVD players, provided the color system to both are compactable.

Please do not attempt to change fuse without checking what made it blow. And, that should be done only by a qualified service technician.

Hello Devon I would like to know how much is the cost of the
replacement board

Sylvania... | Answered on Aug 14, 2012 | 142 views


Hello,

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board. You might be lucky it's just a blow fuse. Also a defective transformer can cause your TV not to power on.

First, remove the power cord from the wall, wait for about 5mins, then plug it back into the back and turn the TV on. If it still doesn't turn on, press the ch+ or Ch- button on the TV. If this still doesn't help, then it confirms that the TV has developed a power problem.

But more often bad capacitors causes problem on the power supply board. I do not think the power board needs replacement, rather those defective capacitors is causing this issue. Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored. Or you can by a refurbished complete power board to save you some stress.

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

I hope this helps.

Regards.

Look towards the middle back of the tv there should be four screws that you can remove to remove the base. Follow up from the base they will be evenly dispersed in th emiddle of th etv and they will all be the same screw type after removing them slide out the base.

Thanks,
Michael

It can be the T-CON board, power supply due to bad caps, main board. Inspect the power supply first to make sure it does not have any bad caps witj leaking/bulging tops, then try reseating the ribbon cables between the LCD panel and the T-CON board. Worst cas will be the LCD panel itself.

Funai used lousy wire going from the inverter board to the backlight tubes. Look for any wires that are touching each other. The insulation could have broke down between them and started arching. Get some heatshrink tubing to recover the damaged wires.

I don't have a solution, but I do know that it is possible to program a universal remote to work with this TV, When I had DirecTV the installer had a huge book of codes (MANY more than the literature that usually comes with a remote or cable/satellite remote) I have no idea how to get hold of this book though, sorry.

Sylvania... | Answered on Aug 17, 2010 | 161 views


It may gone into standby mode because it sensing over current draw or short circuits such as the backlight inverter board. You will need to open it up and look inside the power supply and the backlight inverter board, right now the 5vdc standby power supply is working but nothing else.

It depends on a lot of other things, but you could try these steps . . .(assuming its a TFT flat screen)

Has the mains fuse blown ? try a different mains cable.
If it works from a power supply/mains transformer (a small box attached to the mains supply cable), check that box - they usually have a small green light on them to show they are getting power. These are easily replaced if that part is faulty.
Has the power cable come detached from the rear of the TV ?
Does a power light appear on the actual TV front (usually blue or green), and then go red (or off) after a few seconds. In that case the screen has a more hard to fix problem inside :(
