    We understand this is under warranty but live in a small community and purchased online. Warranty work will not be easy to come by. What could the problem be?

  • ehoovml Dec 19, 2008

    Just to clarify we are talking about a PDP 6020FD Plasma. the new power cord also fits our Sony bravia flat screen. We hooked sony up with the new cord and it worked.

  • ehoovml Dec 19, 2008

    yes we have gone to great lengths to check and recheck. My husband is a bit of an audiophile and is very meticulous about this stuff. We have a min 1 1/2hr drive to get this to someone who will have the knowledge to fix it. Is there no reboot or such thing?

  • ehoovml Dec 19, 2008

    yes there is, have tried. no response from it

  • ehoovml Dec 19, 2008

    yes there is, have tried several different times. no response from it

  • ehoovml Dec 19, 2008

    No bought from dealer in closest city. Came with shock monitor on box which was negative.

  • ehoovml Dec 19, 2008

    Thank you for the info. Obviously we were hoping for more but at this time of the day the manufacture wasn't an option.
    Happy Holidays everyone.

I would call the manufacture and have them get it fixed. in the long run it will be better for you and the tv. just think you fix thids yourself and something else goes wrong then the warrenty wont cover it cause you open the tv yourself. i know it is a pain but you would be better off.

thanks for using fixya.com

    i'm sorry but there is no reboot available. it sounds like you have an electrical problem inside of the tv and onl;y a technician can fix that.

As it is new then it is under warranty plz dont try to open because it may void the warranty, just give the vendor a call and tell them about the problem

We had 52' HD JVC Tv for 2yrs and the other day, the power button was flashing and didn't have a picture and now it won't even turn on. We tried unplugging it for a while and still nothing


This can be a power problem it can be a power problem inseide the tv or a power distribution problem from your power outlets. So before you send this to a repair shop you can try to plug the tv to a different outlet by using an extension cord. I understand that you have tried to unplug the tv for several minutes but plugging the tv to a different plug in can make a difference.

We just moved the tv into our new home, when we plugged it in and turned it on nothing happens.. no picture or sound, the timer/standby red light blinks 11 times then nothing. We have tried powering it on...


Well I think what has happened is that the move has caused a failure, it well may have been bumped or jostled, these units are VERY delicate, and should NEVER be moved without using the protective crating, they came that no-one keeps, for any transport, (It is absolutely imperative that you keep your packaging these days as it should NEVER ever be moved without putting it back into that packaging for travel) they really do NOT travel well at all. This what you describe is a classic situation, we see it all the time in my shop. You have little option but to get a "Quote" for a repair. this is indeed unfortunate, but all too common from "shifted" item. Especially TV's.

Cable won't work on new tv


When I plug in all of the cables the tv says no signal. I have tried it on all different input settings and my cable provider tried sending me a stronger signal. Could I be doing something wrong and is there anything else I can try?On the back the tv has no receptor what else is there i can use?

Hitachi P50T501 plasma tv powered off.


Your TV has a bad power supply on it. Ask the repair service technician to fix your tv.

1 Answer

Tv-dvd connections


first what model samsung? second if the tv has yellow red white then you need to change the tv to the input you are using. for best picture I would use an s-video cable it will give you superior video images since I don't know what brand dvd player I only say this if you have an output on the dvd player
most important is to make sure the tv is on what input you have plugged in. and dont forget to power up both units.
