Question about Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

TV simply won't turn on

I've checked all the usual suspects. One night it was working (on and off) and the next morning I turn it on and get a signal that says it will power off in 4 minutes.

Can't get it to come back on.

    Not too much more I can add. It was working perfectly the previous night. In the morning I grabbed the remote to click it on and it came on but it was just a gray screen, then a note popped up saying it was going to automatically power off. It did and it didn' come back on. Tried turning it on both with the remote and then on the back of the set nothing. I did call the cable company to see if it was their issue. They came out and checked it. It wasn't. The cable was working fine. I don't know much about TV's but maybe a loose connection on a relay switch or something loos in the power supply circuit? If so, can I fix myself. The TV repair guy wants $95 just to come out and look!

    The TV will not turn on. There were no power surges.
    We took it apart and checked the switch with the power on and it came on at that time. A few days later it would not turn on.

I would take the back of the cover off. Then I would just blow every bit of the dust and lint that is in there. From your description it is difficult to tell what the problem is electronically. But it is a good bet that it just needs a good blowing out and cleaning on the circuit boards because the lint and dust with the moisture during the year become conductive and emit small electrostatic charges. The service man he would check that first anyway. do that part yourself. God bless

Can anyone tell me why all of my BBC digital channels have no signal at night or the early morning, but work again during the day!? thanks


Check the signal strength. If the signal strength is weak, this can happen to digital channels. For analogue channels, the fault due to weak signal will be a grainy picture.

Ln40b650t1fxza won't turn on, no power


The power supply capacitors would be my first guess. Open up the set and check the power supply capacitors. If you see any with bulging tops, that is most likely your problem. If the caps are bad, they can be bought for about $5-$10.

Black screen with sound


My 47" LCD Smart T.V. was working fine last night. I got up this morning and I have sound but no picture. The VIZIO icon lights up as usual but I get no picture, only sound. From the time I turned it on, nothing appeared on the screen. I have already tried unplugging it for a while and still nothing.
