the set is aprox 3years old, and I may have a friend who can undertake repair, what needs to be done Please?

info tech, Technician replied 2 years ago.
Hello Peter

What you are describing is classic bad electrolytic capacitors on the powerboard, so a visual check of the powerboard is required initially to visually examine each capacitor in turn carefully for leaking\ballooning up\raised domed tops\powder discharge when found the ideal and cheapest thing to do is replace them they cost about £1 each, another alternative is to replace the powerboard however this obviously is more expensive but far easier to do.
If you dont know what the capacitors look like let me know I will upload a photo as an example.
You find the powerboard by tracing the powercord to it (remove the back).

Let me know if you need more info

Hi Peter

If the power board looks fine, showing none of the symtoms you suggested
what else can I check please?

info tech, Technician replied 2 years ago.
Hi Peter

So you cant upload a photo thats OK no problem what you need to do now is use a meter, can you get hold of one of those?
This is just to confirm powerboard failure then the powerboard will need to be ordered and fitted I will provide on going details so let me know if you have the use of a meter please

Thanks

Dear Anthony,


 


Here is the photo of the removed power board. I've also attached a photo of the other board on the back of the TV, just in case.


 


I hope this helps with your diagnosis.


 


Best wishes,


 


Peter.
