T.v won't turn on at all

I went to bed last night turned the t.v off, when i woke up and tried to turn it on it would operate. It does nothing at all, i tried manually and with the remote, there is no sound or l.e.d when i try to turn it on. i plugged it in to another socket still nothing, i have my surround sound and cable box on the same circuit and they work fine. We had rain but no lightning, if power surge can i fix it?

Re: t.v won't turn on at all

The 6.3 Amp 125V fuse always blows on this TV after a while. replace with a 6.3Amp 250V fuse and it should do the trick unless something else is wrong. a 6.3 amp 125V is almost impossible to find so chances are if you find a 6.3 it will work. Tried a 6 Amp 125v at first and it blows after the first time you turn it on and off and then back on again. 250V seems to work well. Hope this works for anyone else with this TV. Beats having to move it to the trash because it is HEAVY.

I love the internet. The exact same thing happened to my Panasonic and the 6.3A 250V fuse worked. I was already researching new tvs - very glad I don't have to foot that bill now. Thanks everyone!

Re: t.v won't turn on at all

There is a small panel that has one screw on it where the cord enters the unit. The fuse is a 6.3A 125 volt glass fuse and it is tricky to get out.

Make sure the power is unplugged. I used and o-ring pick to pry up one end and then gently pullet it up, then used a piece of electrical tape on the pick to pull the fuse out. Extra long needle nose pliers may do the trick alos.

Re: t.v won't turn on at all

The line fuse is located near the place where the line cord enters the circuit board. If you have a power surge the fuse may very well be blown but also something in the power supply is more than likely shorted. such as regulator, varistor, or diode. You could try a new fuse of the same value and if it "blows" you'll know something is shorted. If this is the case then you'd need to have it checked out at a TV Shop. Hopefully you can get a free estimate. Stargazer

Screen Problem

You could try cleaning out the dust if you're hearing any crackling, other than that looks like a dead tube. If it is the tube, you would be better off getting a new TV, as tubes are a bit pricey, and those CRT TV's really run up your bill.

My tv has no sound or picture. It started last night, I went to turn it on and the red power light just blinked at me and nothing came on. I tried it again this morning and the same thing.

Lots of tvs after some years develop power supply problems, of this type, it may be capacitors drying out in the power supply, they usually swell up and deform a little. Cheap components but not a five mins fix.

I left my tv on when I went to bed and the picture was fine. Then I woke up and turned it off. When I came home and turned it back on, the picture was blurry all around the tv except in the middle of the...

is the blurry all around the picture have different color like a smear of red, blue or yellow?
if it is i think the posistor of your tv is not working. it is the one who activate the degaussing coil around the picture tube the prevent color miss-landing upon opening your tv set.

No Picture

How many hours on the projector lamp? It is possible that it just reached the end of it's life. Most lamps have a life of somewhere between 4000 to 6000 hours of life. If your TV has PIP, try going to that mode. If you can see a picture in any of the PIP modes the lamp is OK. If that works, then it is probably a hardware issue on the video board. A service tech will have to diagnose your issue. Let us know the outcome and good luck.

TV will not turn on


I am by no means an expert but i have the same type of TV and have a similiar problem, first I thought it might be a heat-induced effect so I vacuumed the interior but no joy--then I carefully inspected the main board and found two components that looked melted. So I would suggest you vaccum the interior and then inspect. But be careful as I found one capacitor on the board that still had a charge after 3 days of the set being turned off, you might want to verify things with a multimeter before poking around.
