    that was really great advice being that after i wrote the to get advice i realized that the tv had 2 power buttons thanks

    I have pressed my POWER button manually, but no sound or lights responds. I have tried plugging the TV power cord directly into wall outlets that I know work, but still nothing. This TV showed no signs of problems the night before (5 years old).

    Sometimes I turn off the TV using the remote control, which only turns off the cable box & sometimes leaves the TV light on (standby light?), but appears to be off because the screen in black. I wonder if I have caused the power supply to go dead sooner by doing this?

    I have a 36" Panasonic tv about 5 years old. I think it is the power supply that is dead. I have just called a tv repairman and told him that I think my power supply is dead... he is charging $60 just to come look. I wonder what a repair like this should cost??? any ideas...

I would have to say you have a dead power supply. You will want to make sure first that the "MAIN" power switch located on the lower left on the rear of the unit is turned on as well. Without that on there will be NO standby light.

Magnavox 37MF23ID, would not turn on. Power button only blinks (green light). We have switched power cords and nothing happens. No picture, no sound.

if the power light comes on but the screen stays black, then your TV might be on the wrong input Channel. for example: you switch inputs when you play games or watch dvds vs. watching regular tv. Try to change the input

If it does the same thing w/ the battery removed and just on AC, it's a power regulator problem on the motherboard. If it works with the battery out, the battery is dead and you need a new one.

You were attempting to perform a power scan initially. The second procedure is manually attempting to address the remote to your TV. I will give you the procedures again so you can try one more time. Emerson TV is one brand we have a low percentage of success getting our remotes to work. If it still doesn't work, we could try replacing the remote.

  1. Turn the Television On.
  2. Press and hold the clear TV button for six seconds until the LED flashes.
  3. Enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.

  5. Test functionality with the TV.
  6. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.

Tv wont turn on

take your tv to technician who can check your power supply, if your power is coming on and off, than a problem is not as big. firstly let him check a ht of a supply constantly, your supply is cutting.
