Question about TruTech PLV1615T 15 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

TV won't power on.

The red standby light is on, but neither the power button on the TV nor the power button on the remote will turn the unit on. When either button is pressed, the red light flashes. I have unplugged the TV, waited several seconds, then plugged it back in. Randomly the TV will come on. This is not normal.

    My tv won't power on. The red light is on and then i turn on the tv and the red light flashes. I unplugged and tried to turn it on again and it came on once. I've tried again and the tv won't turn on. I saw that someone else had the same problem and the solution was to open the back and see if something is bulging and to replace it. My question is, how do you open the back of the television and where do you purchase those items that are bulging to replace them?

    Same problem......the remote stopped working on the tv, had to turn the tv off and on to change the channel, then today the tv won't turn on at all, by remote or tv button. Red light is on, but no tv.

Wont power on


some tv's always have standby light on, even iff you turn off by tv button. solution 1: with light on, press a number on remote. solution 2: with light on press stand-by button on remote. solution 3: with light on push the 'on' button on the tv set. solution 4: unplug tv set, wait a few seconds then plug back in, if no light then turn on tv using button on the set, and then channel number.

My LG TV red light won't turn on. although the plug fuse and the remote OK


Try manually pressing the power/standby button on the tv (side or bottom) the red light should appear, most modern tv's will turn on simply by pressing the channel up or down on the tv itself.. But unfortunately in most cases, this seems to be an internal surge and needs a professional to inspect..

I have a hitachi 50 "plasma that was given to me


First do you see a light indicating that the TV has power? There are two power buttons on the TV (the main power and the regular power button). The red standby light will light up when the main power switch is on. This indicator is just to the left of the remote I/R sensor. You can find the main switch on the bottom front of the tv (it is under the tv forward of the stand). Turn on the Main power if it is not on. Then try the power button on the control panel of the TV again.

Does the standby light change color or blink? (Red is standby, orange is power savings (no signal), blue is on.) If the main switch is on and the standby light doesn't come on, the TV has a problem at the power supply. Try unplugging the unit for a bit (at least 30 seconds) and then plugging it back in. This will reset the internal circuitry. If you see a blinking light, then the TV is reporting a self-test failure. I do not know the codes for this model Hitachi Plasma TV.

The manual for the Hitachi P50H401 TV is available from Retrevo: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Hitachi-P50H401-TVs-manual/id/1233ci869/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to access the pdf.

I'm assuming you don't have one of the special versions that were intended for large audiences that were only controlled by remote (no control keys on the front of the TV). Remotes.com has the original remote or a substitute remote if you need it. See http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=13104063628240&smodel=P50H401&brand_pn=HITACHI_P50H401 .

I hope this helps.

I have lost the remote control now the tv will not turn on


The remote should not have any effect whether the T.V. turns on or off.
Have you tried to press the power button so that the standby light is on? On most Tv's the light should be red. Once the standby light is on press the button on the TV to change the channel, either the + or - button. This should switch the tv on.

TV not turning on.


Mine was doing that and I ordered a replacement power supply board for it and now it work. It's fairly easy to replace.

This set has a modification that needs to be done. It will also start turning on by itself and changing channels rapidly. It's two weeks old. Take it back to the Retailer or if that is not an option contact LG at 1-800-243-0000 to get a local servicer in your area.

Cannot Turn on Monitor and Standby Red light is gone


If the power cable and power outlets are working and the TV still won't power up, then there's nothing much you can do. The power supply unit in your TV is blown. You'll have to get it replaced.
