    Hope someone can help me! I've got a 4 year TV that went dead when
    went on vacation last year.

    I already bought another one, so this is a project for me since I hav
    electronics experience.

    When I push the power button (or remote), the TV tries to cycle on (
    times) then it stops trying.

    Looking at previous posts, this one looks original.
    I don't have a chipper checker.
    I can't get the set to come up using the power, setup ... sequence.

    I have checked resistors, they seem to be ok.
    Diodes are checking out good.
    Transistors are looking pretty good.

    I'm getting 168.8VDC at CR14203/CR14201 when I'm supposed to be readin
    approx 156V.
    That seems to be driving all my other voltages high.
    I think it could be a transformer but I'm not sure.

    Also, I did get a SAMS Photosheet so I have a schematic in front of me

    Thanks for the help

    Check for dry joints in horizontal sections !!!!!
    Also check for s/c diodes ...

    Extra volts at the diodes you are looking at has nothing to do with
    your problem, the voltage you are reading is purely a function of your
    AC voltage from the wall. What you need to check mainly to start is
    your DC voltage on the 130v supply at CR14106. It may be 140v or more
    with set off but should immediately drop to 130v when the set is turned
    on. If it's too high when the set is turned on, the set will turn
    itself off. If this is the case check voltage at CR14704 off the
    flyback when the set is turned on. If you're missing this 14v supply
    from a bad diode this problem can happen.

    L14401 at base of H_Output. Remove it, clean up the glue, reinstall it after
    throughly cleaning the leads and the solder pads, ring the LOPT.
  5. If previos posts don't do the trick, see if your version of the chassis has
    the external video jacks mounted to a daughter board that has a three
    terminal regulator with a small heat sink mounted at the rear top corner of
    the board. If it does, check for a cracked solder joint on one of the
    surface mount resistors in this regulator circuit. Very hard to see, might
    pay to "shotgun solder" all the SMT resistors in this area. Usually the
    board has to be removed for good access.

    good luck,
