Question about Sharp Aquos Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a sharp Aquos lc-50ub30u and the Screen is black. Tried soft reset, still not working. The light on the tv powers on but not image on the screen.

We took the back off and found on the power supply board, a brown spot near the top capacitor looks. After removing the board, it appears the mosfet mdd7n20c has fried. Will any 200v 5a mosfet be able to replace it? Or do I need to find a magnachip replacement?

How many times does the POWER led flash per second? (Dont worry about the OPC).

1x (steady constant blink) = Lamps or inverters
2x = Power Supply
3x = Main Unit

If i am reading it correctly, looks like the POWER led is flashing 2x, which means it is a power supply failure. Either way, your TV needs to have a board replaced, there isn't anything you can do to fix it yourself. Try locating your local sharp authorized service center to repair your TV (1-800-237-4277)

SOURCE: Sharp Aquos LC-C3242U LCD screen go's black after power on.

I have (had) the exact same problem with my Sharp LC40C32U. I purchased it at CostCo 1 1/2 years ago. Because they changed their return policy I thought I was out almost a $1,000 but decided to ask them if they could do anything. Wouldn't you know they had an extended warranty that was still in affect. I called their service people and spent over an hour on the phone with them. After going through all the troubleshooting steps they arraigned for an in home repair (free of charge).The technician that came new exactly what the problem was and how to fix it. The kicker is no parts were bad, over time the 2 grounding points on one circuit board were not making contact correctly. He explained that the problem would be worse when the set was cold, as it heated up the grounding points would make a better contact. That's why it seemed to occur everyday first thing in the morning. He took the back off, removed the circuit board and cleaned the contacts. When he put it back together he tightened the screws down fairly tight, explaining that the factory does not tighten them enough which is why I (we) have the problem in the first place. This took all of about 20 minutes. I have not had any problems since. If you live in San Diego, CA the company that fix'ed my Sharp is Advanced Electronic Service.

SOURCE: Power Supply Burnout

Apparently there was a problem with some of the capacitors in these models. Your capacitor definitely is popped.

I had the same problem. The fuse was okay, but two capacitors were blown. One was at location C23 and I think the other at C17. I took it to a local electronics shop and they replaced and soldered the new capacitors on for me. It only cost $16.22. They were a 3300 µF and a 1000 µF.

SOURCE: power supply bad on Sharp Aquos LC - bad board - schematic to ID?

Buy the green light going on means Standby is ok. Next, would be to locate the plug coming from the main board to the power supply and find the post that says PO which means power on. With your meter on that post, press the power button as see if the reading goes High, if it does then the main board is able to turn on the power supply. Next, find the plug on the power supply that goes to the inverter( the long board on the side) remove it and see if you have 24 volts coming out of the power supply when you press the power. If you do, then the inverter board is bad, if you don't have 24 v, then the power supply is bad. There are NO diagrams available for these set other than a flow chart if you can find one. A regular svc tech does'nt need a manual for these anyway.

Let me know how you do Kathy ?

SOURCE: sharp aquos model LC-32D40U screen goes black

The Sharp TV model LC32D40U / 41U "Black Screen problem" is a very well known issue. The inverter is losing ground contact which will prevent the back-light from staying on. The solution is to re-tighten six screws on the inverter board. You also would want to clean the copper contacts on then bottom of the inverter where the screws go through. Access to the inverter board will require some disassembly. Plan on taking at least three hours to repair. See the photo for the location of the screws. Use some "blue" locktight" on these six screws. There is actually a Sharp Technical Service Bulletin that describes these screws. Sharp wants you to replace these screws with a newer version. They cost at least $2.50 each! I think my method will work just as good using the "Locktight"_548.jpg_547.jpg

Monitor turns goes black and comes back on every 10 secs planar PX2210MW

The Planar PX2210MW is notorious for bad electrolytic capacitors. Specifically capacitor C804 on the power supply board. . This is a 1000uF 25volt capacitor. That capacitor was usually made by Hermei and it was purple. Normally, the top of a capacitor will be flat. When it fails, it will be curved upward and there may be some brown material leaking out.
If the monitor still will not work after replacing C804, the problem could be Q805 or Q806. These are located on the under side of the board. They are small black surface mounted chips. There are 8 pins on these chips. I have seen both AO4620 and APM4548A part numbers used. These chips contain a pair of MOSFET transistors. One transistor is n-channel and the other is p-channel. Look for a short in one of the transistors. I have repaired several of these monitors. C804 is always bad. How ever, in three cases, Q805 or Q806 was also bad 12c1ec2c-5a6d-4352-af31-150a0a92514c.jpg c9a53aae-2999-45c7-ad78-44ba51ac5a6c.jpg 795d93fe-9678-46c2-820a-767bea9babb0.jpg

Viewsonic pc monitor model va 1912 the set is dead only voltage presents is on the filter capacitor. mplease can you help thanks

Do you get any power light at all? There are two normal failure points on that power supply board. The first is the 2 small 220uf capacitors as seen in the picture below. When these 2 capacitors fail and the tops bulge it causes the MOSfets to short out which blows the small fuse labeled F200 on the bottom of the board. When this happens the unit will show a power light on the front but no picture on the screen. The other failure point is the group of filter capacitors near the board interconnect to the driver board. Look for bulging tops on the capacitors. If you see the bulges then replace the group of capacitors and you should be good to go.


If you need the MOSfets and F200 fuse parts then they are available here:

A common problem for these is bad capacitors in the power supply, Remove the back from your Tv and look at the power supply on the left hand side.

You will see roughly around 9 x capacitors that are bulged / domed shaped on top usually these are valued at 3300uf 10V any that have bulged or leaked a brown like substance should be changed.
This will cure the problem as they overheat being sat next to a heatsink that gets very hot!
Try and change them for the same 3300uf but a higher voltage.
Hope this helpout in solving the problem....

Good day!

That problem is usually happen when the power supply got partially defects.

Follow this simple procedure on how to repair it on your own:

  1. Open the back cover of your TV by removing all screws at the back.
  2. After you open the cover,the internal parts of TV reveal such as power supply board system board and inverter board
  3. Next,look at the power supply.It is the one that connected on the power cord and its usually compose of common parts like capacitors,resistors and power transistors with heat sink.
  4. After you found the power supply board,try to look the capacitors and see the actual appearance of it.If the capacitors looks like leak or bulge on top that is defective replace it with the same type,ratings and value.Because the leak capacitors can cause of voltage drop and power failure.Use soldering iron and soldering ****** to replace it and be careful to do that,because capacitor have a polarity (+/-) terminal.
  5. Finally,If you already replace the bad capacitors with the new one.try to plug in your TV and power it ON to test it.
I hope this solution will be helpful.Thank you and good luck.

You should look at the circuit board for the power amplifier and check for any leaking or bulged electrolytic capacitors. If this speaker uses the circuit boards made by AMI (such as most JBL and Mission sub woofers around 1999-2001 vintage) they had a lot of problems with this as well as bad modules. Google for the module S53AMI and you will find lots of info if this is what you have in that Athena.

TV wont come on

I just fixed my 50pf7220a phillips last nite....i took the back off and found two bulged capacitors on the power supply board...i tried un soldering them in order to repleace them but could not get them hot enough to melt the i called this number (812) 867-7583 to get a new power supply......tell them the model number of the tv and they have the power supplies in stock mine was 129.00...the power supply is the large circuit board near the center of the tv.....its easly to replace....lay the tv screen down on the floor remove the large back ....about 70 screws....look for the slighty bulged capacitors...on the power supply board.....label all of the connectors to the power supply board and make a map of where they go .... remove the 8 screws that hold the power supply board in place.....get the new board and rehook....making sure that all connectors are tight.... please use two people to move this tv its top heavy....good luck if you have questions please post here and i will try to answer.....I am not a tv repairman but just a concerned consumer.....i understand that capacitors will go out once they reach 2000 hours.....

Cyberhome dvr1200 wont turn on


C14 & C20 are in fact 2200uf @ 10VDC. C15 is 1000uf @ 10VDC. After reading these posts, I took a closer look at the ps board, and sure enough C20 top is slightly ballooned out. We'll be replacing all 3 with 16VDC caps shortly. BTW, the high pitched whine is from the power supply because it's a switching supply and creates some HV.

Thanks for the input!

I have a rca hdtv r52wh77 1 year old ,i have color problems ,i cant get to the convergence set up ,please help.thks

Try looking at the main board very near the flyback and you should see 3 fuse links (they look like hard capacitors) one of them is probably open causing lack or power to the convergence board by way of the ribbon seated close to the vertical output IC

LCDTV turns itself on and off

You could order a power supply yourself and install it, but if the tech on the phone was wrong it would cost you a lot. Better to at least inspect it yourself.
If you are not familiar with electronics it could be tough to pin down the fault. Over-the-phone diagnoses are really only 50"50.

It COULD be any of the following:

Power Board
Main Board
Control Board
Control Board Wiring Harness
IR Receiver Board and or harness.

Visually inspect the power board for any capacitors that are vented or have shrunk cases on them. Check it for brown spots on the board itself. If there are brown spots you may have an overheating component. If it's s discrete component like a resistoror diode you can replace it. If it's an IC, you may have trouble finding it and might end up replacing the whole supply.

On the main board you can check all the connectors to make sure they are plugged in all the way. Make sure there are no overheating components.

On either of these boards, if you find dark brown spots you might want to consider replacing that board.

You can replace any bad capacitors you find easy enough.

Our shop would charge $75 labour and the cost of the part for a repair like this. A few hundred dollars for a circuit board is not unusual.
