Afternoon Gents,

Thought I would make a little post of my TV mission. I came home from work last night, went to turn on the TV and was greeted with the most random clicking noise and a TV that refused to turn on. After we took a beating last night on CS:GO I decided to investigate and see what was wrong with it. Here is a little video of the clicking noise:

Off with the back and the clicking what I first thought was a relay, was actually the main board powering up and instantly back down constantly. So off with the power supply board and a few of the capacitors that are used are known for failing, after having a chat with a few people I was told to replace any 10v caps that I could find, sure enough there were 4x 2200uF 10v caps on the board all looking a little bulged as well as one 1800uf 25v cap that lokked a bit bulged as well.

Here is the board out and ready to go:




Caps all changed:



Today I stopped by maplin to get some replacement caps, would you believe it, I needed 4 of the bastads and each store only stocks 2 so a couple of trips later and I am home with what I need.

10 mins of soldering and as cold would say, b0sh... Job done :)

About 5 or 6 years old. It seems to be a common fault among pretty much all LCD's. It happened to badgers Samsung lcd monitor some time back and we applied the same fix to that.

Had the same issue with a Panasonic Plasma - replaced with a Samsung 55" LED as it was old.

Still have the plasma just not got around to sorting the board out. Once the garage is tidy it's one of a number of little jobs to do.

Get on it then lads, nothing is better than fixing something yourself for pence. It only took an hour as well.

That sounds like the hard life to me right there. I did offer smog a fixing service if he ships me his power board. This is of course an offer open to other Togs!

You've  got to take it to bits to see how it works...it's a bloke thing...and see if you can mend it.  If it's too difficult to mend, you put in your man cave and say.  ."that'll come in handy some day"...probably in your shed with the pigeons....

Very Happy
