Question about Projection Televisions

I have a GO VIDEO mod. HT2015. I turned off the power and left the house. When I returned, it had somehow turned itself back on. I turned it off again, but now I have absolutely no sound at all. Connections are fine, and no connections have been changed. What gives?

    It is plugged in to a surge protector (high end), which I thought was to prevent this problem.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Unplugging the unit solved the problem. I guess I threw my money away on that expensive surge protector. Your quick responses were greatly appreciated.

As the device was OFF when you left .and got ON automatically .the electric supply of your house just would have gone for sometime and then came  on again .due to this the GO video device would have turned OFF then ON again.in this procedure the electric component on the circuit board of your device  which was controlling  the sound got  blowned off so there is no sound.check on the main board of the device and get that component replaced and your device will work properly.
or remove all the wiring connections connected externally to the device and then wait for some time and then reconnect all the wires again.it should work if it is not due to the component failure.

This sounds like a problem with the microprocessor. You may have had a small power surge in your home while you where out and it could have affected your Go-video machine. A problemm with the microprocessor could be turning on the mute switch (which is a transistor on the circuit board) from the malfunction. The only real user fix for this would be to unplug it for about an hour or 2, then plug it back in again, this should reset the microprocessor. If it doesn't help, you should take it to a service center and get an estimate to see if it is worth fixing.

    Surge protectors are good to have but they are not perfect. But the unit turning itself back on is a mystery. Maybe it did not take a surge, but it still sounds like a microprocessor problem to me, it is too unusual of a problem to be a loose cable or anything like that. Most electronics have power going to them at all times, just enough to keep the microprocessor on stand-by. It can still be a problem with the microprocessor. Most problems with electronics require a high degree of electronic troubleshooting skill to isolate accurately and the proper tools. Please try to do the reset procedure I described previously, unplug it for an hour or two, then plug it back in and see if it works.

    Please rate this solution, accept it, or do not accept it, it's your choice.

    Let me know if I can be of any further help.

When i turn it on it winds and turn off.


  1. Check the power. Don't be embarrassed if your problem is as simple as an unplugged power cord. It's better that you should discover this than pay a repair technician to come out to your house and find out.
  2. Isolate the problem. The main troubles that will crop up with a TV set are either no picture, no sound or both.
  3. Check the input setting on your remote control. If you have other devices connected to the TV, such as a video game system, those devices must be used with a different input setting than the input you use for watching programs or movies on a DVD or Blu-Ray player. Chances are, the kids were playing a game and forgot to turn the input back the way it was.
  4. Press the Input button on your remote control to return to the setting you wish to use. For example, the cable box might be connected to Input 1 and your DVD player might be connected to Input 2. Newer television sets have at least 3 inputs.
  5. Check the coaxial connection from your cable or satellite receiver to the television. The cable should be attached securely by twisting the round lock nut clockwise. Also check the power connections for the satellite or cable receiver. If either is unplugged, you won't receive a programming signal on the TV.
  6. 6 Make sure the video cable is securely attached to the TV jack if you have a home theater system. The video cable runs from the Video Out jack on your home theater receiver to the Video In jack on the back of your TV.
  7. 7 Check your receiver setting. Home theater receivers manage several components, so if you have the receiver set to operate the CD player but you are trying to watch a movie on your Blu-Ray player, you'll need to change the selection to Blu-Ray to watch the movie on your TV.
  8. Check the TV speakers to see whether they have been muted by accident. Press the volume button on your remote control or go to the Menu section and scroll down until you reach TV Speakers. Toggle left or right to turn the speakers on or off.
  9. Press the speaker button on your receiver to make sure your external home theater speakers are activated. Many home theater systems use external for their superior audio rather than the speakers inside a television.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The TV will automatically turn itself off after approximately 15minutes if it is tuned to a vacant channel or a station that completes its broadcast for the day. This feature does not work in VIDEO mode. If the power is cut off while you are viewing the TV, the last mode memory feature will turn the TV on automatically when the power is re supplied. If the power is going to be off for a long time or you are going to be away from your TV, unplug the power cord to prevent the TV from turning on in your absence. You’ll also need to check the swollen/bulged capacitors on the power supply board inside the TV. The TV itself turned it off in the case of any bad capacitors or overheating with the help of built-in sensors. You’ll need to replace the swollen/bulged capacitors. Please also check the power from and to the TV.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I have a philips magnavox tv with the original remote. closed caption constantly (writing script)comes on tv screen, even though the remote has a cc button,i press it until cc off comes on, the cc goes off...


You're not doing anything wrong. Your TV is somehow turning the cc on "all by itself". Some bit is getting flipped inside the TV, turning the cc on.

either that or there is some sort of rf or ir interference near the TV that is mimicking the CC button on the remote.

Have you pressed the cc button on the remote, verified the cc is "off" on the TV and then removed the batteries from the remote for a while to make sure there isn't something hinky with the remote???
