    I had the same problem happen to me once before. I unplugged the power supply and when I plugged it back in, everything was working fine. However, it just happened to me again and the "reboot" didn't fix it this time. Help!

Sounds like you need a new main board the light in the front comes on when you push the power button right?

    If you are getting a light that comes on in the front when you plug it in that means your power supply is ok. I'm pretty sure you need a new main board its the board that has all your inputs on it. It controls and processes the singals that are applied to the tv, Like HDMI, component etc. If it is under warranty I would contact the store where you bought it and see what your options are to get it repaired if not contact your local service center for help.

The tv stopped working, stuck on the red power light, now after replacing the mainboard the tv powers on (blue light comes on) but won't respond to anything else


Unfortunately this particular model has a history of bad reports. Often related to plugging a laptop or other device into the VGA connector. If it is under warranty then press them to fix it. If it is not, you are probably better off moving on. Sorry.

I have an Element 32" flat screen tv model # ELCHW321 that i am trying to use as a computer monitor via vga to vga connection and am not having any luck. The tv says no signal. I have tried a newer laptop...


When you are using a laptop you have to press and hold down the function key and hold down the dual monitor key (either F5 of F8) for about 15 full seconds. The screen of your laptop should darken and the image should come up on the tv screen.

Since the tv is not turning on try unplugging it from the wall outlet for a few minutes. Up to 10 or 15 and see if the set will reset on it's own. If that does not work press the power button and when the front light comes on press and hold power button for about 10 seconds to see if it will reset this way. Maybe this work.

32 inch connected to my laptop through vga. No audio, please help.


VGA is only the video portion of the media. You will need to run an audio cable from the speaker output on your PC to your monitor.

FLX03210 Element LCD TV woun't turn on if VGA input was used.


I owned this set for 1.5 years with no problem until I used the VGA input port. I could watch movies from my laptop for about 3 days, then my TV wouldn't turn on? The red power light was on but the light never turned blue indicating the set is on.

I searched this set on line and found this problem was very common with this set. I believe it is a manufacture defect that they didn't have a recall for.

I am going to replace the LCD control board, that should take care of the problem. I saw a used one on ebay for $69. With this board having known problems, I didn't dare try a used one.
