TV turned off by itself, now wont turn back on!!!

Hello, first off if anyone can help me figure out whats wrong, I thank you in advance!! the other day while watching TV, the TV just shut off, at the same time ( and they are not plugged into the same wall) my fish tank filter shut off at the same time,thought I had a power outage for a second.the filter came on after a second of being off,so I went to turn on the TV and it would not turn on. I've never had a problem with the TV and have owned it since new when I purchased it in late '04 if I hold down the power button on the TV itself, the green light will blink a few times but wont turn on the TV.any suggestions? I'm not 100% sure of my model but here is a link to the way it looks ( like this exactly) thanks again for any help!

Re: TV turned off by itself, now wont turn back on!!!

It has gone into protection mode. This is caused when a short circuit is detected by the power management system inside the tv. Try a hard reset: Unplug the power cord for a full 4 hours; then try it again and see if it will clear the protection fault and reset it. If the reset does not help you will need to have a tech look at the set and take voltage measurements inside to determoine which section of the tv has failed and what components will need replacement. The cost of repair is always over $150 and could be much more, depending on the specific parts that need replacing. for example, if the convergence ICs have burned out the repair is around $350. The flashing of the standby light may mean something, but I do not know the diagnostic code RCA is using; most RCA models do not have any diagnostic blink codes in the set. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help further.

Re: TV turned off by itself, now wont turn back on!!!

Hi after a lightning storm my tv went off the same way. A repairman that wouldn't work on my tv told on the phone how to fix it. It will only take a few minutes and less than a dollar to try. I am not a repairman but hey it work for me for the time and money it is worth a shot. There is a small clear round tube like fuse in two silver prongs near the area where your plug in goes into the back of the tv. You have to get up in there it is hard to see, but you will know it when you see it, it's a stereo fuse. Try to replace that.

Hello, My elderly Mom has a Trinitron KV-32S10 tv and the stand-by light is continuously blinking and there is no picture, but there is sound. I have unplugged the tv and waited 2 minutes and plugged back...

The blinking light is the fault code to enable the engineer to have a good guess at where the fault area lies.
Count the blinks and tell a Sony repair shop, they will have a good idea of the cost.
Hope that helps.

Wont Power up


I had the same problem with my Samsung TV Model: TXR3079WHX. However, I was able to repair my set while it was still intermittant (would turn off by itself after 30 minutes of operating, would have to wait 5 minutes before it would turn on again).

I troubleshot my problem with a can of component cooler from Radio Shack and found my problem to be a defective voltage regulator, identified as "QR015" on the main circuit board (the same board that contains the high voltage section).


Before I proceed any further I need to strongly warn you. Do not attempt to remove the back cover, troubleshoot, repair or perform the actions that I have done, if you are not a "qualified service technician". Removing the back cover exposes you (and anyone else) to harmful and deadly electric shock, even though the TV may be unplugged from the wall outlet and turned off. You (or anyone else) can be seriously injured or even killed. If you are not qualified, play it safe by allowing others who are qualified repair this for you.

The defective part (overheats and shuts your TV off) is voltage regulator manufactured by Fairchild. The part number is KA75450ZTA. This part is available from Mouser Electronics for less than 20 cents plus shipping. In order to replace this part a qualified technician will need to remove certain cables and unscrew the main board to allow access to desolder and solder the new component.

Hope this helps.

Magnavox 27m53404/17 Picture went out

Hello there, I'm having a major problem with my TV, I have called all of the local TV repair shops and they all are the same, they want money money money before they will even speak with me about the problem I'm having. This is the only TV in my entire household for a family of 4 and we desperately need the TV in working condition for our kids. I don't want to have to put out $500 for another set if I don't absolutely have to.

The Problem...

About 3-4 months ago the TV when turned on, the picture would slowly come into view and be very scrambled and before the picture would come into complete view the TV power would shut itself off, but the power light would remain on. You can hear the "Click" noise when it would shut itself off.

2-3 seconds after it 'shut itself off' then the TV would make the "Click" noise (The same noise it makes when you first turn it on), it would make the "Click" noise over and over and over again but nothing would happen. So i would turn it off and on again and change the channel rapidly until after 2-3 minutes it would come into view and work.

So we decided to leave the TV on 24 hours a day. Then today we awoke and it was off and making the "clicking" noise over and over and over again but with no picture or sound. Now it wont even turn on/off it just sits there and goes "Click, Click Click Click" and doesn't do anything.

I described the problem as best as I can. Here is the TV information and specifications...

Philips 27 Inch Tube TV

Model Number... 27PT54 3S37A

Serial Number... 78438404

105 Watts
Date Code March 2003


Now that I typed the model number there are threads everywhere people saying the same issue exactly as me, I will read them but please someone tell me is there anything I can do...
Can anyone explain exactly what is wrong with the Tv and why it's doing this?

Also, what should I expect to pay to repair it?

Any information or help would be appreciated very much.

Thanks in advance,

Just got off the phone with certified Philips shop...they said they will repair it for $100-$130 with a $25 down payment just drop it off and he will call me when its done. Does this sound like its worth it or a rip off?

TV wont stay on.

Most likely the TV is detecting an internal problem with it's circuitry and is shutting itself off to prevent further damage. You'll need to have a professional look at your set to determine exacly what's going on. Aside from leaving the power cord unplugged for five minutes, then pluggin back in and trying it again, there's nothing anyone can do from here. Sorry.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!

Aiwa F2400 TV turns off itself immediatly after turned on

The safety circuit in the tv is sensing something is wrong and that is why it turn the tv off,it might be a regulator giving you more voltage that what he is supposed to give you.It should be a simple and inexpensive repair,get a qualified person to give you an estimate.
