there is no fan in the TV?? My panasonic 42" has 3 fans in it!! I can feel the warm air getting out of TVAfter a lot of searching on the web I have found the problem.
The problem is that a few mosfets are mounted together on a small heatsink-the 2nd from the left-and they typically run so hot over time they break down and eventually stop working.
Checked them and 3 of them read open.
Have bought replacements already but they will take about a week to get here.
I am thinking of putting a [quiet] fan in the TV to circulate the air more.
It's SO amazing that a small cheap part can cause something (worth thousands more) to break, and yet people just throw that stuff away!
TBH I don't remember where I got the repair kit.Ben, thx for the heads up. Mine just died a few mins ago with the same symptoms. Going to troubleshoot tomorrow. Where did you buy the transistors? Any specific brand you recommend? Thx in advance
LOLA new laptop (cheapy one) that my mom got will not properly install anything on it; it tells you that the installation is corrupted!-LOL it is made by ACER and it has windows7.ACER IS the WORST computer company ever
