Question about Emerson EWC27T3 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

TV turns on and off by itself.

For at least 1 yr my TV makes a very loud noise and then turns on or off - depending on it's current status. We have plugged it directly into the wall, we have plugged it into a surge protector and nothing changes the action. Lately when we turn it on in the morning, it makes the noise and turns off immediately. Do you have any solutions to this issue?

Re: TV turns on and off by itself.

That Emerson was actually made by Funai, and you may have to contact them for service. Emerson used to be a good brand, but they seem to just want to sell or lease their name to any company that wants to use it. Generally speaking, if you're looking for consumer electronics, don't shop at a store whose name ends with Mart. Even though your set is over a year old, it would probably not be worthwhile repairing it. If you decide to try anyway, their telephone number is 1-800-242-7158.

Hello why do I have a loud buzzing noise coming from my umc combination 21 inch television so bad you cannot here program dialogue ?

You need to send your TV Model first, but in general any strange sounds in a TV come from the followings:
1- High ripple in the power supply of the sound card.
2- Bad polarized capacitors in the sound card
3- High noise in the main power supply (SMPS)
4- For CRT tv, weak insulation of the Line Transformer
5- An external source near your TV set which is picked by your TV and amplified.

Emerson EWC20D3 20 in. TV/DVD Combo what is that loud whining noise from the back

What happens in this case is a small transformer or the high voltage transformer vibrate hard enough to make that sound--not loose or bad but can cause the vibration.

I have seen in customer's homes where it was loud enough to chase cats right out of the room even in a large room.

Two ways to deal with this----with the set apart locate the part by ear or even probing with a plastic tool---when you press close to it, the sound will diminish or go away.

Believe it or not (in our shop) once located we use a hot glue gun to take the sound away---

usually if very loud it is the high voltage transformer on the main TV board (see photo of a typical one) not on the black part but on the iron like (it is a different material) core that looks like a U bolt.

it can irritate but poses no danger.

Sylvania MTS/SAP tv/vcr/dvd combo turning itself off

could be that either the dvd or the vcr are malfunctioning, usually it is the vcr that creates the problem. If you turn tv on and set vol to low see if you can hear the noise of the motor loading or trying to load,with out a tape inside. It may be a good idea to have a qualified tech repair it, these units are difficult to work on and further problems may come up if you are not familiar with the tv.

The TV will shut off by itself randomly (anywhere

Sounds like the TV is going into the "protect mode", usually means there is a failure present and it's shutting down to ward off any serious damage to the electronics. The status light will usually blink a error code along with this symptom, call a service center and let them know how many times the light is blinking in a continious pattern and that will help them to diagnos your TV problem. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

TV making high pitch noise, stop working.

It must be the horizontal output transistor, it maybe short circuited. A short in flyback.

Cars Television

Greetings becky183b,

I am not familiar with statistics on that model of television. That being said, I would recommend either contacting your place of purchase or manufacturer, since normally all combo television units carry a one year manufacturer warranty on manufacturer defects. You may be able to have this repaired or replaced, depending on what is wrong with the unit.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Agent Dort.

Samsung DLP HDTV wide screen

Sounds like the colorwheel (used in DLP projection sets with a single DLP panel) is going bad, either the wheel itself or the bearings on the motor driving the wheel are starting to fail. I would recommend getting a professional to service the TV set.
