Customer Question

Hi Rob
I have a Hitachi LED TV. Recently it is taking quite a while to turn on. The green light goes on and off many times before the TV clicks on. When on picture, sound etc. is perfect. When it has been on for a few hours and I turn it off and on again works fine.
Appreciate your advice.

Many thanks

Hi Anne

What you are describing is classic bad capacitors found on the powerboard

http://snag.gy/fgDWp.jpg here is what they look like

Basically whats required is that the back of the set will need to come off and a visual of the powerboard carried out looking for these devices leaking\ballooning up\raised domed tops when found ideally and most economically its best to replace them however another option is to replace the complete board, if you think you can do this work yourself please let me know I will provide more detailed information.

If not then an engineer will charge around £80 to carry out this work

Please let me know if you need more info
