    Got hard to turn on with remote. To turn set off and back on at switch seem to help but now that does not even work. I can not get the set to show any sign of life. This set is just over a year old and has not had heavy use.

Same problem, same solution 70JUDGE, burned capacitors in the power board, the dude who fix it tell me that is better unplug the tv from the power, you turn off the tv but the power capacitors still working, so unplug it.

Take it apart and see if all the cables are seated properly, and check the panel voltages could be one of the boards

I sounds like the internal power supply board was failing and has now completely failed. What is the vintage of the TV? There was a large problem with some components used in electronics for many years.

My lcd tv dont have image but has sound. i tried turning it on and off and suddenly became normal but after a while it turned back to the same problem.


There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for 5 mins, then try.

If you aren't tech savvy, this unit needs to go in for repair.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering).

Daytek television will not turn on.


There is a manual switch on the bottom of the TV. Flick it on and TV screen should come on. The power light will come with this switch off but the screen won't. It had me cursing for a while until I saw the little switch.

My magnavox plasma tv started to take a long time to turn on until it finnally just wont come on the power button blinks off and on and it seems the tv is trying to come on but it wont


My concern is that this is a power supply issue. Hope it is still under warranty. Find a good qualified service shop. I would call first and get some estimates of repair.

I have a Philips 50" Flat HDTV model 50PF9431D/37. Problem with screen turning on. I get sound. I get 9 quick flashes in red. Then after unplugging and plugging back in several times. It then blinks...


I have the exact same problem! I have it hooked up to a power strip now to unplug it by flicking of the power strip and waiting for the red light to go out then I turn it back on while Channeling up 10 X's and then down and up until it comes on. I listen to the sound of the switch which it comes on. I turn it off if it is faint and then back on and channel up. Crazy process but it's been working. It takes about 10 minutes everytime to get the TV on until I get a tech to come out and look at it. The capacitor keeps a charge which is why the light is flashing with a code for 60 seconds./JJ

Must be a problem with the back light circuit. This not a repair for the amature repair person or handyperson seek out a pro as there are no user replaceable parts inside this unit. Good Luck
