The TV won't start with just a button push, I need to turn it on and it shuts off, I turn it on and it shuts off, over and over, maybe 4-6 times before it will stay on.
I researched a little on the internet and figured it had to be a capcitor. Going with this, I took the back off and saw a burnt black metalized capacitor blown out on the right on the Z-SUS board(I DL'd the service manual). My question is should I order the capacitor or is the whole board shot? If I need to replace the board where do I buy it? If I can just solder in a new capacitor where can I get one seems everyone out there wants to sell a thousand of them and don't have time for just one. Pics Below. Thanks in advance guys!
If there is a relay on the board that the schematic shows is related to the burned cap then I would replace the cap. Try eBay, or mouser.com
If not then I would replace the board. Try shopjimmy.com or just google the board number and replacement.
Thanks americanaudio but I already found shopjimmy and ordered the board. Since you were the only to answer gratz best answer.
how did it work for you? i have the same issue with my tv and the repair shop advised it would cost over $300 for just the part and that the part was on back order for over a year?
I am having the same problem with my LG 37LE5500 it takes about 5 cycles of on/off then it works fine.
Could it be the Power Supply board or the Main Control board?
I hope somebody can help with the right answer
