I received a phone call from my neighbor who wanted his television checked by a technician. I passed by his place, ushered in and shown the television. I applied the power and television was dead with no sign of life. I decided to take the machine to my workshop for further testing. Once on the workbench I opened the Television and once the cover was removed I decided to begin by troubleshooting using my eyes and therefore scanned the three board, Power board, motherboard and the inverter board as can see here below.

I was not happy with the power board since I noted two capacitors with top

part slightly swollen and this is not good sign for capacitors as you can see below.

I replaced the two capacitors and since they are used to filter the inverter circuit line, I have high hopes that this could cure the problem. After replacing the two capacitor rated 1000uF/35v with 1000uF by50 volts, I decided to power the machine and check the progress. I noted the machine is now powering on but shut down immediately.

I checked the ESR of all the capacitors on the power supply, motherboard and inverter board and all tested okay. I decided to pursue the inverter circuit since the faulty capacitors were filtering that line and everything seemed okay according to my meter.

I decided to concentrate more on the inverter high voltage transformer and all looked okay to my eyes, no burnt areas or coils. I therefore decided to check the health of each transformer using my homemade fly back tester and I found one transformer where the fly back tester did not have any lights. I pulled my meter and tested the primary coil and was found okay, I tested the two secondary output and found one output was open circuit.

I found the coil was open just near the connector and did the connection using a very thin wire.

I once again decided to re-test and see if there is any progress and this is what I saw. The television came back to life smiling and praising for another chance to live.

    Nicely done fix Humprey! These HV transformers luckily will become lesser used because newer LCD Led-backlit models obviously no longer need those.

    Well done Humphrey. I have done a similar inverter transformer check with an LCD TV. If I remember the secondary resistance output should be approx 900-1k ohm. Great repair
