I am assuming this set employs a switch mode power supply as virtually all TV's do these days, the fact that the power LED is on means that the primary fuse is intact, usually means that the primary side of the supply is also working, firstly check the electrolytic capacitors in the supply especially the startup cap which is normally of low capacitance but high in voltage rating, eg: 2.2uf 450V, if this cap leaks it can cause the supply not to fully start. If the problem is still there you need to check that the supply is working, do this by disconnecting the main rail on the secondary side, this will be the highest voltage output usually anywhere from 80-135V and hang a globe of the same wattage as that stamped on the back panel of the TV, the globe needs to be a standard incadescent type that you use in your home lighting, switch the set on and if the supply hiccups then check for leakages in any of the diodes on the secondary side, best to disconnect one leg of the diode. if the globe lights the supply is running, the indication is then that the protection circuit has activated, although I do not advise disconnecting the protection circuit, I have done this to trace a fault, then reconnecting it, normally any faults on you main rail will enable the protection. if this doesn't help, I advise telling me more about the set.
I hope this helps.

The remote works but the tv does not pick up the signal, what can i do?


Check whether the standby/power LED at the front of the TV light up, when power is switched ON. If not, the 5V standby supply is not there, and the remote sensor also won't get power, and won't work. If this LED lights up, standby/power voltage is there, and the infrared sensor inside the TV is faulty, provided the remote control emits infrared rays for each press of its button. If it is a universal remote control, if you have taken out its battery from its battery compartment, the remote had resetted by itself, and you should set it with the setup code to your TV once again.
If you wish to get more details check:

Both the sites have setup code list, and setup procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy.

I bought my son a 19" philips tv model # 19pfl340d/27.in order to turn tv on it must be unplugged for 10-15 minutes.The first one I bought did the same thing and I returned it.this one is exactly the...


The remote control will not operate the TV when the TV is in the OFF mode (No LED lit on front bezel). To change the mode from OFF to STANDBY or ON, press the POWER button on the side of the TV. Once the POWER button is pressed, the LED will change to either red to indicate STANDBY or green to indicate ON, whichever mode the TV was in prior to being turned off with the TV POWER button.

By pressing the POWER button on the side of the TV, the mode will toggle from OFF to either STANDBY or ON. If the POWER button is pressed and then the LED on the bezel is red, the TV is in STANDBY mode and will need to be turned on using the remote control. If the POWER button is pressed and then the LED on the bezel is green, the TV is ON.

I have a Jumbo universal remote by Innovage and I need the programing codes for the tv. Do you have them???


To program your remote by entering a code from a manufacturer's list, follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH button for at least 3 seconds until the red LED lights up and stays lit.
  3. Press the TV button on the remote so that the LED blinks once and then remains solid red.
  4. Enter the first set of 3-digit codes from the list. The LED will blink once every keypress. After the 3rd digit, the red LED will turn off indicating that the code was recognized for the device. If the code was not compatible, the LED will flash several times and you need to return to step 2 to try that code again or to try the next code in the list.
  5. After the LED has turned off, aim the remote at the TV and press ON/OFF. If the device turns off, you have used the correct code and the remote was successfully programed. If the device does not power off, return to step 2 and try again with the next code in the list.


To have the remote try each TV code it knows one at a time, follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH button for at least 3 seconds until the red LED lights up and stays lit.
  3. Press the TV button on the remote so that the LED blinks once and then remains solid red.
  4. Press the ON/OFF button slowly and repeatedly until the TV turns off. The LED will blink once each time you press the ON/OFF button.
  5. Once the TV turns off, press the ENTER button to store the code and the LED will turn off.

I hope that helps.

You can repeat Step 3-4 for setting of learning for the other keys at TV remote control, such as VOL /-, CH /-, and F1, F2 are reserved for any other keys you want to set up.

Note:
1. When you have finished setting the learning keys, press the STUDY key to leave the learning status, and the LED light will turn off.
2. The learning function of this remote control may not support all types of TV sets, if you still can not control your TV after you have attempted the above steps, then this remote control may not support your TV or its remote control.
