Power on problem

Hey guys, my receiver seems to work great once it powers up, but getting it to turn on can be a problem. For a couple years it's had some kind of issue where if I unplug the unit and it completely powers down, it really has problems turning back on. When plugged back in, the red light by the letters "ECO" will be on, but when I press the power button the speakers make a deep pop sound, the red light goes off, and then a second later the red light comes back on and the unit has not powered up. I used to be able to get it to turn on after hitting the power button several times, but now this doesn't seem to work. Is the unit toast or is there anything I can do? Thanks!

    I moved my system and when I went to plug it in it did the same thing as described...............anyone know what to do ??

  • amosbanjo Jun 02, 2008

    Same symptoms exactly. The "reset" procedure in the owner;s manual no longer works. If I turn off the speaker select buttons, the pop every 2 seconds stops and the ECO light stays on. No power up.

Well this helped me find the relay but I found that after i pulled it off the board that it has some corosion around the metal prongs that hold it to the board. Could not get the relay open to do what is posted above , tryed opening it several times. Not sure if you are supposed to open it but could someone let me know. I am scraping around the prongs to get the corosion off hoping it will help but might just replace it alltogether. Further info on how to open the relay to do what is posted would help, I would appreciate any help, plzzzzz! :)

I found a solution at the following link:
http://geeksquad.fixya.com/support/t146684-power_problem
or
http://geeksquad.fixya.com/support/t129317-not_powering_up

OR just search on AIWA AV D57.
This guy figured out a fix on a newer model of the AIWA, but the symptoms sound the same. It's worth a try.

    It worked! Be careful popping the cover off the relay so you don't injure the very fine wire on the coil windings. I suspect this relay is the ECO option. Even if the relay is blocked "on", it only disables your ECO option (no big deal). My humble opinion.

The solid red light and the glow of the screen indicated the set is on . also if set is on a red light should be emmiting from the optical out jack. Seem like you have lost audio and video. If no menu appears when pressed on remote the replace the main board. Panasonic calls this the A board.

Hey everyone, I have an issue with my foxtel box. The power point was turned off, and once I turned it back on, the green light on the foxtel box is on. The remote control works seems to work as I can use...


If power was lost likely a glitch in the unit, try to unplug it for a while and if no help something was damaged when power went off and came back on.

Turn off main power, press "direct" and "pure direct" simultaneously while turning main power on. The display starts blinking, reset is done.

D61w20 rca turns on and off


I have a RCA D61W20 chassis ITC222, I had the same problem and my repair guy found out the blue bulb was the main problem, along with replacing some transisters on one of the power boards, He also had to adjust the service convergence (not auto convergence). Works great now!

Vizio HDTV totally not workinig


It sounds like a problem with the power supply. I had the same thing happen on a TV that was only a couple of years old. It did the same thing that you have mentioned. Once in a great while, it would turn on, and then we'd just leave it on because we didn't know when we would be able to get it to work again. The problem was, to buy a power supply for it we could get another TV. It just wasn't worth it.

Your flatscreen might be under warranty. I would look into that.

Will not power on


Did you use rechargeable batteries? The Garmin seems to be extremely picky about enough voltage. I had good rechargeables which I use in my foto flashlights, but they did not suffice for the Gamin. Simple non-rechargeable batteries ones solved my problem. Not good for the environment, but for my bearings...

JVC RX-884VBK RECEIVER


The JVC RX-884VBK is a great machine, I had it for over 5 years and had no problem at all. I came across the (NO SOUND at all) and I believe it is an easy fix. Check the Front left, there are 2 keys marked 1 and 2 for SPEAKERS output, sometimes you don't notice that you connected the speakers to 1 and the 2 key is pressed. You could have both keys pressed and you will get the sound. I hope that helps.
