    Hi, I’ve fitted the repair kit and the TV is Much much Better in so much as it always turns on first time of asking and straight away, the issue I have now is that it turns off again randomly, it always turns on again with the handset but eventually it will go off again sometimes after 15 mins or so but it can stay on for hours sometimes. Any advice or suggestions would be very welcome, thanks in advance Guys and I’m not moaning, I still can’t believe I managed to get the thing running at all, great kit and at a fair price I just need some help to iron out this wrinkle,

    Cheers,
    Terry

    Hi Terry,
    Congratulations on your partial success, this type of fault is a common problem with many power supply modules especially following the handling which occurs during the repair process. Closely examine all the solder joints on all the devices fixed to the five aluminium heat sinks, I usually re solder them all as a matter of routine when repairing these units it saves having to come back to them later, also re solder all the connections on the five transformers again I would do this regardless of how good they appear. Have a last check on all the solder connections on the five new Capacitors you recently fitted with the Repair Kit and if all looks good try the set again and run it for an hour or so to see how it functions, post here again if you need further support Terry and I’ll keep an eye on this thread, Good Luck
