Won't Turn On....Immediately Switches To Standby

I've had this TV for about a month, and all of a sudden while I was watching it, it just turned itself off. I attempted to turn it back on, the green power light would come on and the screen would get brighter momentarily before automatically switching itself back over to standby mode and the red light. I found on another site that it could be the power supply, but I was just wondering if there were any other suggestions, and if this looks like I'm going to need the repair people.

Re: Won't Turn On....Immediately Switches To Standby

Did you get your tv fixed? It may be the Sub power supply unit. If the main supply went out it would not light the display at all. Yes it is time for th repair shop. Good Luck.

You either have a problem with your power supply board or main board. I would start with having the power supply fuse checked as well as the power supply board!

My Technika LCD32-229 is just over 12 months old and has suddenly decided not to respond to the remote or on/off control on the TV. If I turn of the power at the mains for 30 seconds or so, it will then...


The possible reason why your TV doesn't respond to your remote is probably the battery of your remote. Maybe it has been used up to it's fullest capacity, so try checking it up. In case, it has been used up, try to buy a new one.

The possible reason why your TV doesn't stay on is still your remote control. Maybe you have accidentally set it to "sleep mode." When it is set into sleep mode, it turns on just for a shorter time. It cannot stay on longer.

So, here's what you've got to do. Check your remote. When the remote works already, press the sleep button remote again. I hope it works for you.
