Hi, what happens when the DVD is not inserted and you switch to DVD mode ?
Since, its built in, you can open the TV and try disconnecting the DVD player unit and see how the response is. This will let us know if the problem is with the DVD player unit.

Unplug the unit for a couple of hours, that should reset the internal CPU. I would guess that there was a short duration spike that confused the system. A complete reset may take care of it.

    I believe that the problem may reside inside the DVD at the receiver.
    If you can open up the unit, you should see where the remote receiver
    resides on the front panel board. It will either be a small metal can
    with an opening in the front or what appears to be a dark LED. Try
    resoldering teh connections for that receiver. There are times when
    the receiver connections have a high enough resistance to prevent clear
    reading of the infra-red flashes.

    You have failure of the main power supply. THis could be a simple
    component failure or something further down the line that is preventing
    the pwoer suply from working properly.

  • mohammed marika thambi

    Even when off, the SCART port should be allowing the signals to pass.
    the DVD when off originally, remains in the
    mode where it controls the output port. I'd be looking at the default
    DVD settings for the SCART ports. .

    All electronics are somewhat sensitive to power surges or dropouts. It
    is possible that you had a slight drop in power at your house that
    caused the internal 5V power line to drop to 4.2V or so. Once that
    level is reached, some CPUs have a tough time differentiating between 0
    and 1. Basically your set entered the state of confusion and the
    digital processing section was generating some bad analog info.
    Anytime this happens, a hard reset (unplugging long enough to drain
    the internal battery) will often cure the problem.

Mitsubishi tv WD-73640 wont turn on. 4 red light then 8 yellow lights


Hi, if you power your TV on and see a black or grey screen, it may be on the incorrect input. Inputs get changed when switching the TV input for dvds or video game consoles. Look for a Source or TV Video button on your TV remote, not the cable remote. Before doing this, please make sure all connections are secure. I hope this helps or reply with more questions.

Wd-60737 mitsubishi blinking yellow status light ?


Mitsubishi TV troubleshooting
Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

I have a akai 61 inch dlp tv, my son turned it off went back 1 hour later tv would not come on with remote or by push button on front, checked to make sure power was in cord to back of tv, any ideas what...


I'm assuming that no lights are blinking on the front of the tv and the bulb is in god working order - it has been replaced recently. In that case the tv will have to be opened and the voltages on the power source tested, starting with the ones on the main switching transistor, followed by the ones on the output rails - a good voltmeter will have to be used. If all are there then check the voltage going to the

I have a 19" phillips lcd tv and when i turn the tv on the phillips screen comes up but when it is going the show the channel it shut off by itself how can i fix this problem?


Hello. I may be able to assist you. If you are using a direct cable connection from the wall outlet;
  • Check the incoming cable or antenna signal connection to ensure that it is properly secured to the TV's antenna input.
  • If the connection is good, perform the automatic installation again to search for all available channels.
If you are using a coaxial connection from the Cable or Satellite box to the TV;
  • Set the TV to the channel specified by the service provider.
  • Change the channels at the Cable or Satellite box to view the program.
If you are using a video connection (CVBS, S-Video, YPbPr, HDMI) from the source (DVD, Cable or Satellite box) to the TV;
  • You do not need to perform automatic installation to search for the channels.
  • Press the 'SOURCE' 071218044349_22024.gif button on the remote control repeatedly to select the correct input source.
If you are using an HDMI connection from the source (DVD, Cable or Satellite box) to the TV;
  1. Reset the TV and source by unplugging it from the power outlet for 30 seconds.
  2. Turn on the TV and press the play button on your source device. If the source is HDMI CEC compliant, the TV will automatically switch to the HDMI input.
  3. If your source is not HDMI CEC compliant, turn on the TV and switch to the HDMI input.
  4. Turn on your source.
If you are sure you have selected the correct input or channel but still have no picture or sound;
  • Try resetting the TV by unplugging it from the power outlet for 30 seconds.
  • Press the 'SOURCE' 071218044349_22024.gif button to select the correct input source.
  • Check the connection cables.
  • Try the connected source with another TV.
  • Connect a different source on the same connection of your TV.

Won't turn on


If you're using a DVD player or other component using the Component cable hookup, try unplugging that from the mix, unplug the power cord for the TV from the wall and wait 15 seconds and plug it back in, then power the TV back on. Mine used to do this and I gave up on the component cable option and went back to composite (RCA).

Magnavox Plasma HDTV Red light


I had a similar problem with my magnavox tv with the blinking light issue. Eventually it just didn't come one anymore. Looking at other forms they said the problem was a bad capacitor number 2074 located on the power supply board. When I opened my tv, I noticed that the capacitor was bulging and burnt up. I bought a new one labeled 2200uf 35v and did some solder to attach the new piece. Put the tv back together and it works like new. No more blinking light. I hope this helps.
