TV has no power

TV does not have any power, it is plugged in and we have tried both power buttons (1 on TV, 1 on remote). Is there somewhere where it could be a fault for power?

Re: TV has no power

If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. good luck!

make sure the slide switch on the remote is in the TV position.

you can check to see if the remote is putting out a signal by using the camera in your wireless phone. While viewing camera point remote in to camera lens and push button on remote, you should see flashing light on camera display.


you could try resetting remote,

(1) Set the slide switch to TV position.
(2) Press and hold the POWER button
(2) until it flashes twice then release
(2) the button.
(3) Enter the code 0 0 9 3 5.


If remote still doesn't work you will need repair shop to look at it again, it's possible there is a plug inside that is not connected.

Tv will not power up



Press the TV button or ON/OFF button while remote is in TV mode and there's a source of power to the outlet or outlet strip.

Make sure the TV is plugged in.

You might have tried to turn on the TV during the lamp cool-down. Wait a few moments and the picture will appear.

Has the power light on the front of the TV been blinking for one minute? If so, the lamp may be dead. Refer to the Power indicator
is blinking or flashing section below for more information.

When you first plug your TV into an outlet, the Power indicator on the front panel will light and blink for approximately 30 seconds
and then go off during the initialization of the TV. This happens only when the TV is unplugged and plugged back in. The TV can
only be turned on after the Power indicator goes off.

Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is "live" by plugging in something else, such as a lamp.

Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the
remote control solutions on page 53.

Multiple TV Setup might be set to the wrong option. Press MENU/OK on the front panel. Select Setup Options, then Advanced
Options, then Multiple TV Setup. Choose TV (default).

Philips Projection tv will not turn on


Not trying to offend you here at all, but ....
1. Plug something else into the same outlet and verify that the outlet works.
2. Look at the power cord for any damage like wear and tear near either end of the cord.
3. Once its plugged in see if you can turn it on using the power button on the front panel (not the remote)
4. If it came on using the power button then there is not a problem with the TV.
5. If it did not come on then Sorry I can't help.
6. If it did come on then make sure the "tv" button near the top of the remote (assuming its the original remote) was pressed before pressing the power button on the remote.

TV does not recieve a remote


Hey, Have you tried to power cycle your remote? That may work, do the TV too. I'll give ya the steps, just follow them and you should be ok. I'll throw in a factory reset as well, but if you're not using a cable box you will have to run another auto scan. anyways start off by unplugging the TV and removing the batteries from the remote control. Let them both sit, you don't have to let the remote sit really, but I do for good measure. You have to let the TV sit for a minimum of 5 minutes. at the end of 5 minutes, you have to find the physical power button on the TV, this means NOT on the remote, but on the TV itself, you have to find this power button, and you have to hold it down for 1 solid minute. Again, any time you can do something extra for good measure, it can't hurt, so if you want to leave it unplugged for 10 minutes and hold the button for 2, go for it, it may help. After you're done with that, power cycle the remote control. Being that your remote seems to be haywire, go ahead and press every single button, this means channel up and down, even if they're on the same button, every one from the top to the bottom, 5 times with no batteries in it. Then hold down the power button on the remote for 30 seconds. Then replace the batteries, preferrably with new ones. This completes the power cycles for both the Remote control and the TV. Now, before plugging the TV back in, we have to do the factory reset. Again, hold the power button on the actual TV, and then, while holding down the power button, plug in the power cord, wait for a couple of seconds, and then release the power button. Wait for a moment, and then turn the TV on. This completes the factory reset.

The reason for all of this, is, power cycle the remote to drain it's capacitors and reset it, power cycle the TV incase the Remote sensor is affected by a static electricity build up. Factory reset incase any settings may have caused this. Hope this helps.

Below is the website for the online manual which will give further instructions.  
http://dishnetwork.com/downloads/pdf/user_guides_and_manuals/remotes/6_3_RemoteManual.pdf

In looking at the manual no codes are given for the Coby brand TV. If the above process does not work, you'll have to call DishNetwork for further assistance. It may be that the remote will not work for your TV.

Set wont turn on from remote intermittently and occasionally turns itself off W70-2100


Does the TV turn off on it's own, or is the remote being pointed at the TV when it goes off - without you pressing the power button on the remote? If the TV goes off with the remote pointed at it (without you pressing the power button), it could be old batteries, or you need a new remote. Have you tried replacing the batteries in the remote? If it's not the batteries, have you got a universal remote lying around somewhere that you can program to operate the TV and try to operate the TV with it? If you determine that it's not the remote, it is probably something to do with the infrared remote sensor, or something faulty in the sensor's circuit board that controls the power switch. How old is the TV? If still under warranty, I would call the manufacturer and explain your problem. They will be able to assist you with any further questions you may have. The number for the manufacturer's Customer Service is located inside of the owner's manual. If you no loner have the manual, you can easily get the contact info via the manufacturer's website. Good luck, and I hope this helps...

TV was working earlier, today came home no green power light no nothing


I looked up the manual online - after you replace the bulb, you need to reset the bulb life timer. Using the TV remote push the menu button, SETUP menu, select the lamp reminder option to reset the hours to zero. That might help the status indicators.

I have a Sharp flat panel model LC-20SH4U. The units power LED light is red. No effect (sound or picture) when remote or on/off switch is activated. The LED light slightly blinks.


Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

NOTE:
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.
