Tv shut off

I bought this tv 1 year ago brand new. It has been a great tv untill last night when it suddenly shut off in the middle of watching it. I have tried everything I can think of, checking breakers in the house unplugging the tv and making sure that it wasnt covered in dust or anything. I left it unplugged over night and tried plugging it back in today and still I get nothing. I dont get any sound like it is even powering up. I have tried using the remote to turn it on, as well as the power button on the tv. Does this mean my tv is dead after one year or can it be fixed?

    I to bought one and had it to go out. The TV has been sitting since Mar.11th of last year. It was a year old on the 5th of Mar. 07. I called the store where I had purchased it. I felt it had to be a defect in the parts. They told me I needed a return authorization # from Sylvania for them to replace it. I called Sylvania whom agreed that there had to be a defect. They sifted the replacement problem back to the store.It is very upsetting when a new TV just turns off,never comes back on 6 days after the 1 yr. warranty is up.

SOURCE: TV turns itself off after a few seconds, no picture at all

As far as fixing goes, you might as well get a new TV... Unless its a LARGE EXPENSIVE HOLY $%^# TV, It will cost more to fix, than to just buy a new one, unless its under warranty, which being an older model as that (or so im reading) It may not be covered.

Try unplugging the TV, and while unplugged, hold down the power button for a full minute (yes, with the plug NOT in the wall) after a minute, plug it back in, and try. Its a hard reset. If it still does not work, and you've tried different outlets, It's probably a repair issue, and you'll need to get someone to fix it, or just junk it :-/

SOURCE: TV won't turn on.

The buzzing sound could be due to either a bad filter capacitor in the power supply or a shorted component further down the line keeping the power supply from running at the correct frequency.

Hello there. I'm sorry to say that it sounds as if the element that actually energizes your screen is bad. It is most likely overheating. or quite poosible the power converter lost a resistor or 2.

Check the outlet to be sure you have power to it. Then check both ends of the tv power cord to insure that they are actually plugged in. good luck.

SOURCE: Cannot remove menu on sTV screen and TV will not turn off.

look for a recall button on the remote

this is normally the button that will turn on the on screen graphics

if the remote is not working point the sensor through a mobile phone with camera switched on and see if it flashes at you then you will know if remote is working

post back if you need any more help

No longer has picture - voice still working - can it be fixed or is it worth fixing?


Not knowing brand and model number most of these sets have a 4-5 year life and parts for a set of this age may not be available.

The risk in repairing a set this old is it may just fail again and again.

Lamps only last Between 5,000 hours some last 8,000 hours
So what that means For Every hour TV is Playing it is burning up hrs of lamp. These sets are not like projection that you can run day and night .
Most Lamps need replacing every 2 yrs Depending on how many hours you watch TV?
It could be that the Lamp you have is defective ,Mats has Lamps for $99.00 1-800-628-1118
Get New Lamp then see if that corrects the problem.

It is probably a bad power supply board and yes I have had to replace this board on new machines before. You need to call 1-800-samsung and set up a warranty service call.

I bought this watch citizen BL5334-04E year ago,


Mechanically operated date changes occur at 12 O'clock. If your watch thinks it is midnight when it is noon then it will change date.

The solution is to wind your watch on 12 hours.

First tv kept tuning on in middle of night now its kepts tuning off while ur watching


I don't know what might have been making it turn on in the middle of the night. It it keeps turning off while you are watching, you might want to check if:
1) someone is accidentially hitting the SLEEP button on the remote. The TV will turn off automatically 30, 60 or 90 minutes after the sleep button is hit. It can also get hit if you set the remote between seat cushions on the couch and someone moves, etc.

2) Does the TV get enough ventilation to allow heat in the TV to circulate away from the set? Drapes, tight cabinet, etc. The temperature sensor may turn the TV off automatically to protect the TV.

3) Your power cord is not well plugged into the wall or you might have some issues with the wall outlet - expecially if it is an older home (before 1980). Any wiggle of the cord may cause it to disconnect for a very short time - the TV will shut off.

4) This Brand is only available through BEST BUY and this model has a 1-year warrentee. The manual says to call 1-888-BESTBUY for service.

Good luck.

Watching dvd, great pictue and all of a sudden black out


7 Blinks is the failure of the SC/SU/SD PCB's (1 2 or 3 depending on how lucky/unlucky) you are.

Panasonic have a great warranty usually. Give them a ring, it has failed.

The flashing LED is the fault code.

Have a new Emerson MW9710W microwave. Had it


My daughter is having the same problem as you are having. Thing is we bought it for her new. She had not used it at all for a year. They finally bought a house, started using it in May. It is now doing the exact things yours is doing. Is there some kind of recall notice on these microwaves or what is wrong and how do we fix it?

My Tv just started doing the same problem


Sounds like the On/Off sitch is bad to me. Be Calm my friend these things happen in life. No point in becoming angry over it. The fact is it was probably the least expensive set on the shelf when you bought it. It came with a warrenty as do the other brands And, this sort of problem can happen to ANY brand of television. That's why you get a warrenty. Also, you could have bought an extended warrenty which would have cost you more than the repair job you need for your tv. Call 18002427158 press 1 be preparred to hold about 4 or 5 minutes and ask them for a service tech in your area. I would think that this should be repairable for about $35-$55 OR look in your yellow pages and take it to any TV reapair shop in your neighborhood. Don't worry, BE HAPPY!!!! Don't forget now, very soon, if you don't have cable or satelite you will need a new tv anyway. The nation is going Digital! WOO HOOO!!!! Have a great day! Symphonic tv's are ok. I have had a 27" here for 13 years now still plays great! Although, my 6 year old Symphonic just pooped the bed. But, that's ok cause I can fix it!
