Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

First the TV was working fine, then it would not turn ON (from remote or POWER button) before 4PM. I thought it was a matter of set up and contacted AKAI Singapore (didn't know there was AKAI USA) who sent me a manual of a similar system and when I was trying the set up, I changed time zone from Eastern to Pacific. Now the TV will not turn ON at all

My magnavox tv will not power on light turns yellow

I have many thoughts to this problem, having seen many sets before in the past, one issue could be software related which all sets now have, with value range sets this tends to be a more basic code and can be easily bothered by other remote controls for other equipment and lock up, so powering off and trying again is a good starting point.
Remote controls can suffer with poor battery connections or batteries which in turn cause a remote to miss-fire a command, in another answer on fixya I pointed out that its rubbery buttons or contact mat under plastic buttons can sweat leaving a residue which causes miss-fire (the amount over the years I have cleaned).
Its a matter of prying apart (and or screws) if you are lucky clean contacts with meths spirit and soft rag (few are glued together but most are clipped).
In a modern set they have many little power supply circuits for each system (oldies had one big lump) these have to fire up within a certain time or a "fault" is deemed by the system so goes to standby or shuts off, if the set repeats this problem in a short time period it may have a fault which only an engineer could solve.

Hope this helps

Sharp tv 25g s100 power button doesn't work, no original remote

The remote may or may not be the real problem, it is possible on most of these to gain access with back removed directly to the tiny button switch that is in back of the plastic power button on the set and press it with something not sharp (a micro switch is what the button activates) and if set comes on get the remote programmed.

Your best bet if the set will make it on that way is to get the original remote----if in North America with the model number of the set contact either Sharp or Andrews Electronics---usually the original is under 35 dollars and no headaches with programming.

If set does not turn on manually with the micro button you may now have a actual circuit problem in the set.

Mitsubishi WD-52525 was working fine and now it will not turn on

This is just a shot - but it worked with my Sony (same problem).
Pressed remote power on button AND held Power button on TV on at the same time.

Set clicked 4 or 5 times and then came on....

Other, most have a (VERY small) reset switch on the rear - near where the power cord enters the TV... Use a flashlight and a mirror to locate it on your set....

JVC AV-32870 Power button is missing

I had a friend that had the exact same problem! We did use a remote to turn the tv on and then it was a matter of setting up the menu settings. It was trial and error, but it was worth it. As far as getting the power button replaced, I would recommend call and ask a TV repair person - but the remote worked just fine for my friend.

Try a new Remote control, and if that doesn't fix the problem, it may be a remote sensor in the set. Hope this helps. Have a great weekend
