Thomson and LG TV's difficult to switch on

After a couple of months of use both sets refuse to switch on with remote or manually. If they are unplugged and left for a couple of months they start working again. I have to alternate their use. The sets, when switching on sometimes respond with a quick flash of picture before switching back off. At present neither set will switch on. The only AV used is a Phillips freeview box. Both TV's are around 8 years old and this problem has happened for the past 10 months, soon after we had some electrical work in the house. Could this be the cause?

Re: Thomson and LG TV's difficult to switch on

It most certainly could be the cause of the problem. Most of the time when a TV set comes onm then switches off, its a fault in the power regulator circuit. Regulators can go bad all by them selfs, but most of the time, they fail due to excessive AC voltage, and or ppower surges, such as the oin off action of intermittant power would cause. On sets this old, Im not sure you would want to invest the type of cash to repair. Its onlty a guess but I would say a minimum of 125 to repair them? Its a call only you can make. You should go to this link and read this first. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this link.

You'll probably need to use the remote control to access the TV's settings menu to deactivate the child lock feature.

Remote service mode

Entering service mode and adjusting data values there is a skilled work. If you have knowledge in this matter, check this to get details about how to enter the service mode to Thomson TVs. It is difficult to give all details here by this window.

I have lost the orignal remote for my tv and have a universal remote. I get the tv/video button to work. is there some way to change it with out using the remote?

Unfortunately, the Input button (to change the source from INPUT 1, INPUT 2,
INPUT 3, INPUT 4, Front Input, HDMI/DVI, and last-active channel) is only on the remote. If your universal remote was built 6 months after the TV was released, try a different code for RCA/Thomson TVs (assuming the remote has an input or source key). Thomson built the TV.

If your universal remote doesn't have an input key, you probably need a higher end remote (one with that key or one that can be programmed from a computer). Alternatively, you can get an exact replacement remote here: .

I hope this helps.

Its likely that the new new remote control has specific codes for the components it can operate. You should look to the remote manual or online source to find the code(s) for the DVD player you have. Without knowing the remote you purchased, its hard to locate codes for you.

No sound

Hi, It seems that the SAP, no audio, distorted audio is a common problem for some RCA units even with the use of the original remote and in your case made more difficult with a replacement remote. Two things you can try: 1. Some say that unplugging the TV set for a long time, a couple of hours at least will do a hard/system reset on the microcontroller inside the TV hopefully resetting set-up the audio (including SAP) to default; 2. contact Customer Support at Thomson and explain your problem; 3. Try going a google on "RCA SAP manual reset"; or 4. Buy an original remote and not another replacement. Hope this work out for you and give you some ideas. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
