Question about Sanyo DS31520 31" TV

1 Answer

No nothing Left the tv on for about 3hrs, came back to a quiet room. Hit the power button on remote-nothing. Hit the power button on the tv-nothing. I check the fuse on the circuit board still good. I really don't want to trash this set, can it be fixed?

Re: no nothing

I am sure it can be repair,Checking the fuse was good idea but it seems the problem might be farther ahead,if you have no indication of power(no lights,no clicks)the problem might be in the power supply,there is a 5 volts supply that has to be running because is the power to the microprocessor(brain)and when you push the power button on the remote or the set the brain knows it and send the commands to everyone else to turn on,if you have the 5 volts and the brain is working the problem might be in the horizontal circuit ,possibly a bad horizontal output transistor(shorted)if he is bad it might have taken a fuse or a safety resitor.Some fuses dont look like the average fuse,they look more like resistors.If you are familiar with tv service We can give you all the help you need to find the problem ,if you are not too familiar with servicing electronics you might want to call servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.

Received this TV from a friend, was working when it left his house, I have place on tv stand, plugged it in, hit the power button, it came on for a breif second. Now the on-timer light is blinking, I can...

what was that outside temp in transport, was it in the cold. If so the unit needed to get back up to room temp before pluging in, if not you will blow the starter.

TV will not come on with remote or power button

The following instructions are for the Emerson EWC1303/1903 tv/vcr. That's the closest match I could find to the Spongebob Squarepants 13' TV
If it's actually in Sleep mode, do the following:

Press the WAKE UP/SLEEP button on the remote
control until “SLEEP TIMER” appears.
To view the time left for sleep timer press the WAKE
UP/SLEEP button twice, then press the MENU button
on the remote control to exit the sleep timer setting

If unsuccessful, try unplugging the TV for 1/2 hour, then plug it in and try turning it back on either manually or with the remote. Either of these should solve your problem. Best of luck to you!

Sanyo stuck on video mode

Yippie, I figured out a solution that worked!!! I have a univeral remote from comcast, on that remote near the bottom left is a small button that says (input) tv/vcr, press that one time and whala!! the tv video screen was gone, I had to manually change the channel from the tv channel button on the unit. once I changed the channel to 3, my universal remote worked... the button is the second one from the bottom left... I was on hold with sanyo for a long time and just kept trying on my own, so good luck!!!!

Tv will not power up.

Silly question but, did you try to reset the TV by unplugging it for 2 minutes then plugging back in? Its worth a shot if nothing else.
