It's normally a power failure/surge on the main board. Most common with LG tv's of this type. Samsung tv's of this type don't actually turn off, they only go on standby, which is why you can turn the Blue Eye off in the menu. One solution to try (if you haven't already), is to disconnect it from the mains (this is also the only way of actually turning the tv off), leave it for 24 hours, and try again.

Not really that tough. Sounds as though the backlight is shutting down, either from a power supply failure, or a failure of the backlight circuit itself. You can verify this by holding a flashlight to the screen in the area where the menu usually appears to see if it displayed on the LCD panel with no backlight. If you can faintly see the menu displayed, your backlight has shut down and the most likely cause is the backlight inverter board, followed by the power supply and the backlights themselves which are part of the LCD panel. If you found this information answered your questions, please be sure to rate it. Thanks!

Sanyo p42840-06 channel menu comes on then goes off led power stays on.


Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

When I turn on my Sony TV, ti stays on about 30 seconds then shuts off, What do you think is wrong?


Do a Power Reset.
1. Turn off TV.
2. Unplug the power cord of the TV from the electrical outlet.
3. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds.
4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. (If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.)
5. Turn on the TV.
If issue persists after doing the steps, reset the TV to factory default settings.
1. Turn on the TV.
2. Using the supplied remote, press and hold the UP arrow button.
3. While holding the UP arrow button press the POWER button on the TV itself.
4. When the TV goes off, release the POWER and UP arrow button.
5. The TV will turn on by itself and the initial setup screen will be displayed. Just follow the on-screen prompts to finish the setup.

The screen will turn on, but after 2 seconds the screen goes black, the power button stays lit, and sound remains. What could this be?


it could be a bad CCFL lamp, inverter, power supply 24vdc output, or a main board problem. The set will need to be properly diagnosed.

The tv just turns off after about 5 seconds and won't stay on. i've used the system reset and unplugged it already. no power surge, lightning storm, etc. Ideas?


If reset does not cure it and if after about 70 seconds of unplugging set the green power light stops blinking, do this:

When power light comes on and goes off, on the front of the set press and hold both the menu and input buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and RELEASE both buttons.


Power light should blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it four more times.

Let me know what error code you find and if this told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Stays on for 2 seconds and switches off


A 2-2 code on that unit means over current shutdown. 95% of the time that code indicates defective convergence output IC's.

Monitor flashes on then goes black.


I think you have the display shut off. the button on the bottom left will shut screen off. It will come on for a few seconds if you touch the screen, but will shut off again. just push the display button again and it should stay on.
