Small rca truflat tv won't turn on

I have had this tv for awhile and it has worked very well, but a few days ago, I was babysitting and the kids had messed with the settings, and now it will not turn on. All I saw was something lock and they shut it off and now it will not turn on. There is a little red dot beside the buttons in front of the tv and it is on it's lit up I guess because it is on standby. I have tried unplugging it, and pushing the power button and waiting, so now I don't know what to do? Please let me know if there is a way to fix this, I really like this tv!!!

    I have the same exact problem. I hit some lock thing by accident and now it only goes to standby mode and wont turn on. I have no Idea what I did. It was not dropped or anything. I saw something lock as well and then I freaked out and turned the tv off and now it wont turn on...it just stays in standby mode. I have unplugged it and left it alone and then tried again but no luck? does anyone know what this lock is and how to get the tv on again?

    I would like to know why RCA hasn't had a call back on this product, every body that owns one has the same problem. I've been a RCA consumer for years but if they don't recall this product i will not buy another product from them EVER!!!! there is NO solution to this problem, you will never get your TV set to work I've tried everything.

Leave the tv unplugged for a couple of days , if the lock feature that you seen was a parental feature then the tv should have still came on , even if it was a lock for the tv the tv would come on but would not change channles or do anything but say its locked , otherwise something happened to the EPROM chip inside the tv that controls the power on/off, vol , menu , ect...

    missmegan89 ,

    does the standby light blink a certain amount of times when plugged in ? or does it just stay lit?

  • Ed Korey Nov 21, 2011

    its not a perental feature, its FPA lock. [Front Panel Access] without a remote I dont think you can fix this issue because the front buttons wont do anything

  • jason Nov 21, 2011

    this is the menu ic , the menu ic is also the cause in simular models

  • jason Nov 21, 2011

    if you get a remote that turns on the tv and accesses the menu then you can go to preferences and turn off the child lock(fpa) otherwise the eeprom ic(menu ic) has failed

I have a Vizio model E320Vl TV. after working for about two hours it shuts off. You can unplug it and wait about 10 minutes and it turns back on but will shut off again after awhile.


Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

I have a rca model led65g55r120q tv flickers and no sound


Check all cables for loose connection, try another input for picture (DVD, BLu-Ray, etc). If none of the other inputs work then it's a panel problem (display) If one or more of the others work then it's a problem with either the tuner or the signal.

LG 26LH2000 television. Last 2 days when I turned my TV on there was only sound, and black screen.


back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

TV just flashes different colors


You have entered a diagnostic colour test. With the TV powered on, hold the 'Menu' & 'Enter' together, then press the power button. Problem resolved
