    i have a 44inch 44sz21rd, it is 2 yrs old, At the end of last year the tv would not turn on and the bulb was replaced. Now for the last 3-4 months the amber light and green light stay on together. Also since today it would not turn at all, and when it did turn on the manual channels or the remote would not work. Now i just leave it on permanently. I have left the tv off over night to see if it will reset itself, but still the same. I have taken out the batteries to try to rebooot it, still the same. Please help.

    The indicator light in the front of my tv blinks continually. I unplugged the set and plugged it back in then heard a series of 3 or 4 rapid clicks and the light bigins to blink again. When the power button is pushed, the light goes solid then begins to blink continually again and the tv makes no "click" noise as if to start/turn on like it usually does when the remote power button is pushed. There is no picture or anything.

    My television used to shut off on its own after about two or three hours of use. I would have to wait about an hour before turning it back on. But now, the last time it shut off I can't get it to turn back on. My power led light blinks green four times, then goes to red and shuts off. While it is green I could hear the TV trying to power up but it never does.

  • fozdic Mar 10, 2008

    I have a WD 65732 65" Mitsubishi rear projection TV. I bought this TV about a year and a half ago, and didn't get the extended warranty. Anyway, my wife was down stairs watching tv, and then poof, nothing. I unplugged the tv, and plugged it back in, and it came back on. I didn't really think too much about it until the next day when I tried turning it on, and again nothing. Initially I would get audio, but no video. A day later I don't even get the audio. Tried calling Mitsubishi about this problem, and mentioned that I received a letter from them about a thermal sensor issue and they'd extend the warranty on the tv. They said they'd contact a service provider for repairs, but if the thermal sensor wasn't the problem, I'd have to pay the bill. I spoke with the repairman, and got a real nasty attitude. He wants me to bring it to his shop, but what's to prevent him from reeming me one? Anyway, I'm looking for any advice anyone has about this problem before I end up buying a new tv in repair work.

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. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!

For the Mitsubishi, there seems to be two common power-on problems:

1. If the green power light keeps blinking (wait at least two min. to ensure it doesn't go off). It is 60% chance you can fix the problem by replacing the DM module capacitors. If you search for this problem, you will find the solution. It takes about 2-4 hours and $20 to fix.

2. If the green power light blinks for about 1-2 min and stops (normal operation). It could be a stuck on button. Disconnect the wire connecting the front panel then try using the remote to power the TV.

Good luck.

If its not a blown fuse or if you replace the fuse and it is still blowing, you should try to check the H-Output transistor it starts with 2scxxxx or 2sdxxxx screwed on a heat sink near the high voltage x-former or flyback. good luck too.

I have been asking around and this is common with this set.My HD65W20 that I have owned for 5 years just did the same thing,so I called A repairmen and the bad news,was that the set probably was not worth repairing,because the $1,500.00 DV2 module was fried,as seems to be real common with these when they are only a few to 5 years old.I called thompson and explained that I had paid $3,500.00 for this set,only 5 years ago,and they did not even want to listen,be cause they only warranty parts for 1 year,end of story.........Since getting married in 1975,I have purchased in excess of over 30 new,high-end RCA products,but never again.The best part of the whole story is yet to com....At the time when I was looking for another tv,it was onlt because my current $3,000.00 RCA tv failed because a quite evident manufacturing defect in one of the curcuit boards and because the warranty had lapsed,RCA was giving me a big run around about getting it repaired,So, the dealer contacted RCA and they sent a Rep to town and He promised me that he would get the part ordered for my old TV right away and get it repaired,so I really should'nt be afraid to but another new RCA.Well,after I got the new TV and PAID FOR IT,I was long for gotten and hade to pay over $500.00 out of pocket to replace the board that the factory had screwed up.... Now they are dropping the ball agian.The best advise that I can give,is to move on with your life and refrain from doing buissiness with LOWLIFE companies like RCA again... tooldude56@verizon.net

My Sharp tv remote will not turn on / off tv. It will turn on by the main power switch on tv but not by remote.


From page 8 of the manual:

The POWER indicator on the AQUOS television should light GREEN indicating you have power to the AQUOS television.

If the POWER indicator on the AQUOS television still does not light up, press TV POWER on the remote control to turn the power on.

IMPORTANT:
IF THE UNIT DOES NOT POWER ON - UNPLUG THE AQUOS TELEVISION FROM THE OUTLET AND REPEAT THE INSTALLATION STEPS.

IF YOU STILL ENCOUNTER NO POWER, PLEASE CONTACT US AT 1-800-BE-SHARP

Neither the remote or power on/off switch works to turn on


I'm assuming you tv doesn't turn on but you have the red light indicating power , it's possible you have more than a faulty switch , common fault is the power board has blown one or a few capacitors , you could try replacing the power board on the tv but some tvs will not start if there are other faults , namely faulty inverter , faulty power board , if the display is faulty , it'll be cheaper to buy a new tv

Green light stays on when trying to turn off tv. picture go's off when cable remote is used but green light stays onand you can see that screen is still on?


You need to set up the cable box remote for your TV , now you are just turning off the cable box. Some cable boxes have a switched plug on the back that will turn on and off with the box. If yours has the switched receptacle you can use that to turn the TV on and off by plugging your TV into the switched receptacle. Make sure the TV power is on, the receptacle will kill the power so the clock on the TV wont work. Otherwise you need to set the code for your TVs remote and use the system power button.

When pressing the remote's 'on' button tv won't come on


does it power on using the power switch on the tv itself instead of the remote? if same thing happens when pressing the power on switch on the tv directly, try to test it on another power outlet. if it is connected through a surge protector or avr, see if connecting it directly through the outlet works.

try to also check if the power on switch of the tv is somehow stuck which may cause it to try to cycle on and off and same thing on the remotes on/off button.

now if this is specific to the use of a remote, replacing the battery might help.

Remote wont turn tv on


If your remote serves multiple units, make sure it's in the right mode for your TV. (not dvr, dvd player, tuner, other source...). If the TV will not turn on manually (with the power switch on the TV), then make sure it's plugged in and there is power at the plug (try a different power source). If your remote has been out of battery power, sometimes it needs to be reset / reloaded with the correct code for your TV. Check your remote and / or your TV manual for the procedure.

I turned tv off with remote, now it will not turn back on. i have tried remote and button on front of tv.


Check the remote with new batteries. If it do not work, remote control has the trouble. You can't switch the set ON by its front panel power switch, as it has been shut down by remote command.

Try power-cycling your TV (e.g. turn it off and unplug it for several minutes). If the TV then powers on, reset to factory defaults. If the problem persists, your TV will require repairs. Service can be obtained by calling 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S. or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada.
