Steven Rivas: My tv turns on but I don't have picture or sound I have a 39' Proscan lcd
James Van Kahn: Black screen on my 06`LG was caused by the noise filter where the power
cord is plugged in. May want to look into this if you discover all your
caps being flat (normal) on the power board.
Robbie Jackson: I have a stripped screw too!
B.J. Monstovich: Is this something you would recommend someone doing with no experience? I
have to replace a Cap cause my tv is taking 5 min to turn on but the tv guy
wants at least $125 to do it.
Eugene Bailey: Om my tv I changed mainboard and power supply power light comes on and
stays on but the screen is black do you know what might be the prob.
Eduard AV: thanks mate, fixed mine with it :-)
OLAYIWOLA Olatunde: I am grateful for the picture of the LG that I am seeing because it is
exactly 47 inches that I am using. The problem I am having with it is
that, the screen got cracked at the right upper corner when something
dropped on it. Where can I get the screen and how much can I get it or
where can I bring it for fixing and the price. Thanks.
slearwig: Remove and Replace each capacitor One At A Time and Take Special Notice of
The Polarity of Each Capacitor (the + and - signs on the cans). You really
want to insert each new capacitor with the same polarity. These are
Electrolytic Capacitors and they are polar just exactly like Batteries.
If you insert the new capacitor backwards, expect to blow it up and damage
more of the t.v. Very Important to maintain the correct polarity when
inserting the new capacitor into the circuit board.
You should Always NEVER open the set before unplugging it from the wall.
And make sure to short the old capacitor on the board to discharge it. USE
AN INSULATED WIRE. DO NOT TOUCH THE METAL CONNECTOR WIRES (the leads) OR
THE DISCHARGING WIRE WHILE DOING SO. Capacitors store electricity, and the
larger the capacitor, the higher the voltage (electricity) that it stores.
TIP: When desoldering the old capacitor connections to the circuit board,
it is much easier to use Desoldering Wick. You apply the wick between the
hot soldering iron and the solder on the board. The wick soaks up the
molten solder and leaves the capacitor leads clean and easy to remove.
Then when soldering the new capacitor's leads to the board, do it as
quickly and carefully as possible. Holding the soldering iron on the
circuit board too long can destroy the connection point on the board. The
copper etching can burn off.
rex goodchild: Thank God !!! My tv works now !!!
David Diamond: Thank you so much. Now I know what is wrong with my expensive Samsung.
There was a single loud "crack" sound and the screen was instantly black.
I have a temporary small TV, and when I have time on my hands, I will
tackle the capacitors on my big Samsung.
viC Bangamwabo: lol.. the excitement at 5:25 on wards. nice work man.
Marbin Pena: You're the best men thanks
tylerse7en: YOU DA MAN! Having zero experience with soldering and working on
electronics myself, I followed your tutorial to fix my blown LG and it's
all good now!
newbcake88: You sound like Vin Diesel.
Keithandra Hillsbery: so now i have picture on my tv but now i have no sound when i turn it on
any suggestions on how to fix that
ApemanMonkey: Do you need a special type of solder or will the regular solder I have
laying around do the job?
Camilo Ignacio Jorquera Rivas: Thank´s man, your work has helped me a lot.;D (y)
Robin Reid: Thanks for the video. I replaced 5 capacitors on my father's television
following your instructions and it did the trick. My father was very
pleased. The cost was about $6, including the solder. Very good of you to
share your knowledge.
TheJeepinDad: Thanks bro!
Luke Barnard: WHERE CAN I BUY THESE CAPACITORS FROM? ANY TV STORE, ONLINE OR BOTH? How
much are they, what voltage, etc, for same sized TV? Some reply please.
only1kleigh: Thanks for the video share. Awesome you fixed your own tv and saved all
Mattl Port: Good job, I have the lg du-42 exact same problem. Thanks for mentioning
Radio Shack. I thought I was good to have to order online.
Hommyful: You the men bro...I got a Toshiba that just recently stoped working it wont
turn on I checked the capasitors only (1) looks like that, but it isn't as
bad PLUS I don't have the blinking light could it be something else
Loz Blake: This wasn't whats caused the problems on mine, but this video was very
helpful in letting me check that my caps were ok (they look fine to my
untrained eye), glad you got yours working, I'll continue trying to figure
out whats wrong with mine!
Chattar Singh: please give any solution
William Hays: I've got a 37" very similar to yours and I feel that mine has suffered the
same fate. I am going to check it today and then order the necessary
capacitors and soldering iron/solder if that is what it needs. Thanks for
the video and giving me hope that I can fix mine too.
szkola windsor: OH, that is a great hack...loving your reaction man ! Nice vid :)
Adam Rodgers: i read something online about discharging bad capacitors as they can kill??
does this apply to these capacitors too?
Chattar Singh: & audio still working with blank screen
Marco Galicia: U know how can I replace the screen on my tv ????
Chattar Singh: but no any solution it's still working for few seconds
cynthiam1000: we have 2 LG's that are doing the same thing! Thanks to this video we may
just save money..Great video. I'll let you know if it works!
Chattar Singh: i have changed all capacitors of power supply
Chattar Singh: it's a samsung lcd tv 20''
flimsy47: Good video! Question: I see the capacitors bubbled out, but light does not
blink nor turn on at all. Should i continue with changing the capacitors
only, or may there be some fuses blown out? Thanks.
Chattar Singh: Why does my tv screen go blank a few minutes after being turned on?
Also,why when I push the power button on the set the power sometimes just
tv display then goes blank again
Paul Harris: This man knows everything...or is he God?
BERNARD B: great!!! Thanks for thr info(",)
FixItUrselfDummy: hope all goes well. keep me posted.
DaAlzki7852: My LG Tv has the same problem, but it turns on after about 15 - 30 min at
times it takes hours lol, that is what has been keeping me from taking it
apart. Did you find out the capacitors you needed just by taking it apart,
taking them off and comparing them at the store? Did you obtain the specs
govoni1: Video is so shaky that it is hard to follow.
KBHLL Broomy: Hi will this work with my lg 37lc2b tv?
FixItUrselfDummy: thats an awesome story man! glad it worked. thanks for watching.
FixItUrselfDummy: your welcome. i love hearing stories of people choosing to fix things
themselves. Moving to a new home isn't cheap and you've saved some good
bucks by doing it yourself. thanks for watching.
Brandon Lee: I have a Phillips (not sure of model but its hdtv flat panel) where do I
find compactors? How much do they cost? Thanks.
ChristopherJamesMuse: Worked like a charm!!! TV is fixed for under 6 bucks! Thanks big time man!
You saved me a ton from having to buy a new TV. Cheers!
Shawn Collins: "Holy crap balls" I'm going to have to try this myself. My TV comes on
after we turn it on and off a few times. It "warms up" then works fine.
Just annoying... so I'm going to look at this fix this weekend. Thanks!
isabelle IZE: lol i was thinking i know youre not crazy to put the video on youtube if it
dont work lol
Chela Maynard: Thank you so much for your video!! my LG 32lc2du started acting up and I
consider throwing it out and buying a new tv, but after watching your video
I took my tv apart and saw that one of the capacitors went bad, I went to
radio shack and bought a soldering tool set ($10.99 +tax)went to skycraft
parts & surplus, inc. Winterpark, FL and bought a capacitor for ($0.50
+tax) Now my tv is working like new! All for $12.18. THANK YOU :)
Mike Pugl: Useful but irritating background music for the first 3 mins!
