Question about Zenith C27A24T 27" TV

Tv will not turn on

It has happened twice before. I go to turn it on and just hear a double click. Like it comes on for a sec then turns right back off. I can continually do this and before it has eventually came on. I have even unplugged it for 1/2 hour. Now it will not turn on at all. Still the double clicking, turns on then turns off immediately. And when it has turned on before, a message 'AC Line Failed' appears on screen.

Its the capacitor. Look for one that is bulged or seaping glur like substance and replace it.. U can buy them at radio shack or any electronics store fot cheap. 6 or so for a buck or 2. Ebay also has them. U will need a soldoring gun also, but it will be fixed for a few bucks in sted of a few hundred

'AC Line Failed'
That was generated when you pulled the AC plug. This is telling you that some custom settings you might have made could be lost.
The clicking you hear is a relay that repeatedly connects, then disconnects the AC to prevent fire or further damage. 
 
If it's failing to turn on, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself.

I hooked the ps3 to the philips tv. turned on the ps3, AV1 displays in the corner. Nothing else happens, I am expecting the ps3 logo


give this a try...

Leave the TV running, go over to your PS3 and turn it off.

Once its off, hold the power button down till you hear a beep, KEEP HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON till you hear a double beep. The PS3 will shut itself off.

Give the device a couple of seconds, then hit the power button one last time (just turn it on, you don't have to hold it).

If all went right, your baby is back up and running...

JVC 42 inch LCD HD TV has no picture or sound


utencilio posted this fix. It worked for my JVC LT-42X579.

Okay, I found a fix! Called JVC, spoke to somebody there, here it is:
1)unplug the TV completely, no wall no power strips, completely
2)wait 10 sec
3)plug TV back in and Turn it on, the light will still be doing the same thing
4)wait 30 sec
5)ON THE TV, not the remote, locate the menu, volume (-) and power button.
6)while simultaneously holding down the menu and volume (-) button, pressed the power button ONCE and continue to hold the other 2 for 10 sec.
7)on the remote control, go to menu>settings>system info
*** now this I know as a FACT will work on systems that display: JVC - ver.5.32FO001, but I don't know of any other versions***
8)press the mute button on the remote twice
9)unplugg TV again and wait 10 sec.
10) plug TV in and turn on

It SHOULD be working normally now... Thanx to the guys a JVC support for this one, I know it seems like an obvious first place to look, but sometimes it isn't. I for one checked online forums first

TV turned off by itself and now it won't turn back on


If the tv has nothing happening at all when you try and turn it back on including any noise, your power supply is broken. If it is still trying to turn on or does make noise, an internal component has come loose or been knocked off, most likely to your picture tube.

Panasonic TH-42PX80U won't turn on.


You are missing 15volts. If this is a new TV, it could be as simple as a plug not fully seated on the power supply. Regardless, the repair should be covered by warranty and Panasonic is one of the best when it comes to taking care of the customer. Ifd nI can be of further assistance, let me know
