TV won't come on

When I push the power button on the front of the television, all I hear is a double "click" coming from inside the tv. Then, nothing happens. Any suggestions???

Re: TV won't come on

If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. This is probably a startup problem. It may be as simple as an open resistor that provides initial drive to the horizontal deflection. Check for power to the horizontal output transistor. If there is, check for drive. Could also be a bad flyback transformer. Another problem might be that the set is in high voltage shutdown, possibly due to a faulty voltage regulator. Check the regulated voltage going to the flyback primary (it should be marked on the circuit board what that voltage should be... 120V-140V in most TV's). If it is too low, the flyback transformer or one of its secondaries is probably loading down the primary input. If the voltage is too low, try disconnecting the secondaries. If the voltage remains too low, try disconnecting the primaries too. If the voltage is then normal, the flyback is bad. A REALLY bad flyback will also blow a fuse. don't leave the TV on too long with a shorted flyback, the h. output transistor can get too hot and probably fry, if it isn't fried already. If the primary voltage is too high, then the set is probably in high voltage shutdown, possibly caused by the voltage regulator. Good luck, and stay away from it if you haven't done this before. Take it to a lab if it's worth the repair.

Re: TV won't come on

We had EXACTLY this same problem with our Naxa NX-518 combo TV-DVD. This WEIRD solution is what worked for us: My husband started to take the back of the TV off; took the four screws off, and as soon as he loosened the back, VOILA~! The TV came on! Magic! We think it might have something to do with pressure on top of the TV or something.

I bought a Supersonic "13

By your description it is a high voltage problem, the horizontal output transistor is probably shorted and is loading the set down which would explain the constant clicking it is making. To repair this will more than likely run what you paid for the tv. But! if you decide to go ahead with the repair then an estimate would be in order because there may be other issues. My personal feeling would be to quit while you are ahead.

I accidently locked my citizen tv and I can't access any buttons

Front Panel Lock

This feature allows you to lock the buttons on the front of the TV. Even when the front panel lock

feature is ON, the TV operates with the remote control.

• To lock the buttons on the front of the TV, make sure the TV is turned ON, then press and

hold the ON•OFF button on the remote for approximately 5 seconds.

• To turn off the front panel lock, make sure the TV is OFF, then press and hold the

ON•OFF button on the remote for approximately 5 seconds. Now the buttons will operate
properly. A manual for a similar model if you need it. Many of the controls should work the same. Good luck and please leave feedback!

I can't get my CASIO model TV 995B open to replace the batteries.

hold the tv with the front facing the top; then under the tuning buttons you should be able to push and slide down the bottom of the tv.. if i had a bigger picture of what yours look like then i could help more. or even go to and get manual for it.

My Maganasonic TV MT 5524, it does not function

If the remote has never worked, replace the batteries, then you may have to check the programming code (which is abundant on the internet). If it USED to work, but doesn't anymore, you or someone/something else ma have pushed the "DVD", "STB", or "AUX" button. Push the "TV" button and give it a shot.

My remote doesn't seem to be working to my Naxa TV. I have put in new batteries. The TV comes on with the "green" light in front. But when I click remote "pOWER" nothing happens ??? Thanks

If you replaced the batteries and can turn on the TV manually, then the button is probably not making proper contact with the remote. Try opening up the remote and placing a small piece of tin foil where the power button is, close the remote up and it should work.

Try to reset first if nothing happens we proceed another solution;

Resetting the TV

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can saved time.
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet for 6 order to dessipitate the charge current.
2. Unplug any connected devices (Satellite, DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

hope this may help;

Strawberru shortcake tv turns on then right back off

Sounds like the power supply may be going out, or check and see if there is a circuit breaker button on the back. Otherwise there may e a blown fuse that is internal. Don't open the back unless you have training on what is safe to touch as the picture tube can maintain a HUGE electrical charge that can stop your heart if you accidently touch the wrong thing. Sounds like a weak power supply tho. Jay
