Yeppers . theres a definate short inside the unit so unplug the unit and DO NOT ATTEMT TO PLUG IT IN or start it up again as you could cause more problems . This problem sounds like the hi voltage transformer is bad and would cost approx. 400 or so to repair. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but this is pretty common. Now just maybe thgers a short in the power supply and thats not the problem as i cant really tell as theres a lot of things that can cause this Symptom. Now you will have to decide if you wanna invest in a 8 year old set? If it looked good before it went out then i would say its probably worth the investment but the set is comming to the end of its life expectancy but thats dosent mean that its junk. Remember now if your not a tech you should not open the set as theirs very hi voltage inside these things even when they are unplugged . Good luck

My LG 37LG50 TV wont turn on ?


Are you certain the replacement power supply is good? A defective main board or power supply can cause this problem.

Samsung LN40C610N1F. When plugged in, the red standby light comes on, but when I hit the power button the unit will not power on. The light doesn't blink or anything.


I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have tobuy and try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.4_19_2012_3_53_26_pm.jpg

if set opened look for puffed up caps like these on the power board.

While setting up the Crest Universal remote control RCP1F for my sharp TV, I've managed to turn the TV off, but now I can't turn it back on. The TV remains on Standby and turning off the power doesn't do...


OKAY TRY THIS..
DO STEPS 1-3 AGAIN AND ONCE IT TURNS OFF KEEP CLICKING THE CURSOR UP A COUPLE TIMES.
THEN START CLICKING THE CURSOR DOWN SLOWLY TELL THE TV TURNS BACK ON AND ONCE IT CLICKS BACK ON HIT THE TV BUTTON ON THE TOP OF THE REMOTE ..
IF THE LIGHT BLINKS TWO OR THREE TIMES MORE THEN LIKELY YOU'VE PROGRAMED IT =)
AND NOW KICK BACK RELAX AND ENJOY A COLD BEER FOR THE BOTH OF US =)

Tv wont turn on only clicks and then flashes red timer light


Well, I have found out that the number of red light blinks is a "blink code" that indicates the nature of the fault with the TV. Usually these are various failures of internal fuses or circuit boards. There's a fair amount of information on threads at techlore.com on this, so try searching there. Teh specific codes and manuals are usually it seems under license from Sony and not available for free to the public. Sorry!
