Turns on and goes right back off

When trying to turn our TV on either by the on/off button or remote, it sounds like it's coming on and then goes right back off.

    When turning on the TV either by the remote or the TV itself, the blue light turns on bue the little red light flashes until it turns off. After it turns off the blue light rapidly flashes.

    same thing but now its smoking

  • CD-Johnny Nov 17, 2007

    Just to add an extra detail to this posting, I have a TOSHIBA rear projection set....if I leave the tv unplugged for three days, it works fine when plugged back in, but as soon as you turn it off, the unit will not come back on until it has been left unplugged for three days. It seems that once the voltage drains from "where ever the voltage is stored", it works okay.

    Is there a component in these sets that controls the level of voltage? You can hear some sort of "protection breaker" clicking on and then off when the tv has been plugged in, then turned off, then turned back on again.

    Perhaps that might my problem?

    When turning on the television, the green light comes on and you hear the click. After two seconds it clicks off. No picture or sound ever happens.

    Also for the past few weeks prior to it not coming on, the picture would be distorted. It would be somewhat curved with double images in some areas along the edges. Every now and then if you tapped the TV, it would straighten out. Now it won't come on at all, just the ckick on then back off after the two seconds.

  • Pankratz93 Jan 13, 2008

    we rarely turn our TV off - we've had the tv since 2004 and have probably turned it off < a dozen times maybe 2 dozen. My husband prefers to have it on all the time and just turn down the volume so we can sleep at night. He says this helps preserve the TV. But could this have caused the problem with the component that could be shorting out? I turned the TV off last night because the lights from the TV were really bothering me. Now it won't come on. This happened before when I accidentally turned the tv off and it came on after trying for a few minutes.

  • haunze Jan 14, 2008

    Well I will b sitting there watching my tz50v51 and it will just shut off. Then after it shuts off the red light over the power button will start blinking. I really want to know what is wrong with my T.V.

  • steve 1956 Jan 20, 2008

    I have the Hitachi 43FWX20B 43 inch Projection Television that has shut off from time to time. Recently I could not turn it on at all. Later in the day I tried it and it clicked on. I left it on all night so that I could watch football. We turned it on and off all week and this Saturday it did not come on. I have to unplug it to get it to click on for about 3 seconds and it clicks off.

    I know that I need to call a service rep, but I would like to confirm that the cost to repair will not exceed the value of the set. I have owned it for almost 4 years.

  • Pankratz93 Feb 20, 2008

    We're trying to get our TV fixed - it is a short in some sort of circuit board. The repairs should only be a few hundred bucks - if the repairman ever calls back that the part was in. We ended up buying a new TV but will repair the other TV and give to my father in law. So far it has cost me $50 for the service call and repairman said it would be $150-$200 for the part plus labor to put it in.

    Just had the set fixed for no video through the coaxial inputs. They replaced the entire circuit board with an upgraded revision. Have had the TV for less than a week. It worked fine, and then I lost TV reception. I get a fuzzy picture in PIP mode, but nothing on the large screen. Inputting commands makes some screen flicker. I got video just fine by running through the VCR and into the RCA inputs, and now this morning, all it does is click on then off, no picture/sound. Sounds like the power switch trips.

Sounds like a common problem where the Horizontal Output Transistor shorts due to heat, loading by a partially shorted flyback or yoke or old dried heat sink compound. If the HOT is ok then there is probably a short in another component. This can be determined in most cases by isolating each module one at a time. In other words disconnect the audio circuit and try, disconnect each crt separately, etc. If no shorts are determined check the power supply for proper output voltages. All this would need to be done by a tech or someone familiar with the process. Repair cost should not be that much compared to the cost of a new set.

It sounds like the High Voltage is having a problem. I had the same problem and it ended up costing about $250 to fix the high voltage from a TV repairman

I have just had the same problem with a SP47W3HFX and when I took the back of and switched on with the remote I saw two what looked like diodes arching and fizzing on the left (from front) tube's circuit board, when I unplugged, waited and then touched the curcuit board to unplug the ribbon cable and see if it would run on two tubes/lamps, the bottom part with the coil, etc came away from the upper part. new tube needed, parts anyone? What else could have been damaged?

How do i program my rca remote to my 42 inch samsaung tv

you can try a code search

  1. Turn on the tv you want to program.
  2. Press and hold both the button for the component along with the power button until the light comes on and stays on.
  3. Press the play button every 5 seconds until the device turns off. A bank of ten codes is being sent each time.
  4. Press the rewind/reverse button to see if it turns off/on again. Wait 2 seconds and press again until it turns back on. You may have to do this up to 10 times until it searches through the bank of ten codes sent.
  5. Press and hold the stop button until the light goes off. This saves the code.

The tv has power .the red light is on ,but when it turns on,the green light comes on but then it turns right back off ant the light goes back to red it has a round 1/2" button like plastic plug in...

The little plastic button you are referring to is the IR receiver for the Remote. When the TV turns itself off, are there any flashing lights on the front or rear of the unit. Look through the vents in the rear for any flashing lights or try tuning the tv on in a dark room and see if any lights flash and reflect off of walls. If there are flashing lights tell me how many flashes and what color and I will try to look them up in the manual.

TV turns on, then immediately off again

hi nel2874

so, you have a television that turns off immediately after you turn it on.
It sound like your power supply on the unit is out. Because I don't know the value of your unit I cannot comment on replacing the unit. But I would recommend that you use our website to find a Flat Panel TV Repairman near you. You may want to call to get an estimate on replacing the power supply before considering replacing the unit.

Sony TV power and volume not working

Since remote does not work, try taking out batt and turning on by set. See if still turns up. It could be that the up button is jammed inside set. Does everything else works? See if you can go to menu and turn speakers off, this will allow you to work on set and not worry about noise.
