VERY COOL!! Ihave the same exact box. Been laying around for ever lol. Now I have an awesome idea for it. As I was reading I kept thinking, bluetooth. Thanks!
Hi, sorry it took me so long. Been dealing with some health problems. Here's a picture with the buldging caps highlighted. Hope it helps.
Stainless Teaspoon Necklace Medieval Style
Homebrew High Voltage Capacitors on the Cheap
The tops of mine were buldging. Hard to see in the picture without zooming in
I can easily see them but that may be because I already know which ones they are.
Yes, I'm so happy and grateful. It's so nice to be able to do a little research and save so much money. It cost me $12_inc shipping +1hr of my time.
Success!! Thanks for the great post. I replaced the 4 bad caps (10v) with 25v. It would cycle anywhere from a few times to over an hour before it turned on at the end. The last few times it came on the picture was just colored lines (attached pic) but now it looks amazing! After I got done and put it back together I was getting very disappointed. You could hear it turn on but no picture. So I said a little prayer and opened it back up and sure enough, I had forgot one small connection that goes to the display. Turned it back on and whalah! Success! THANKS!
I was just thinking they might be tied together is because they do it intermittently and how the power is cycling on n off. I know they are different and not the same circuits but wondered if the fast powering on n off could maybe cause it. As you can tell I'm no electronics expert lol. I was researching how to "fix" stuck pixels and some things I read made me think it might. Guess I'll take that on once I take care of the caps. Thanks for all the help!
Thanks! I was able to find them @ parts express. Also there were comments from people who used them for exactly the same thing. I did have another question; while dealing with this issue did you or anyone else notice any stuck pixels, sometimes when when the TV finally turned on? Sometimes when mine comes on I will have that but if I turn on and off a few times they will go away. I have a feeling it's connected somehow. And one more thing, I noticed 2 fuses so I was thinking about changing those to while I was in there. Any thoughts? Thanks again!
Hi, I was just given one of these, 40',. Same issue lol. Has a really nice picture when it's on. So I really want to fix it. Been doing a lot of research about the problem and have looked through lots of articles and videos but I like this post. Thanks for the posting it. I know its old but good info is good info! I wanted to ask if you or anyone else who may see this, know of a good place to order the caps? Also I noticed theres 2 fuses, I was thinking about going ahead and replacing those too while I'm in there, couldn't hurt, rt? OK, THANKS! again and please let me know if you know of any place.
