Trouble turning on the tv at times

The remote control works well at times.
the all of a sudden the remote will not work
then I will turn the set off with the botton on the side of the unit. The next time I try to turn the unit on the remote will not work or I can not turn the unit on with the switch on the side. Then all of a sudden I,ll try the remote and the set will come on. I never know when the set will work.

The next time I try to turn the unit on the remote will not work or I can not turn the unit on with the switch on the side.
This statement leads me to believe the IR receiver and associated set-top button circuit may be at fault.
If you haven't hammered the set to pieces yet, try this; next time it fails to respond to the remote, put the remote in your freezer for 2-5 minutes (not longer, the batteries won't appreciate it) and then try it again.
If it then functions normally, then a certain integrated circuit (PT2222 or PT2221) may be from the same lot as mine and is abnormally sensitive to warmth. If this does make a difference, try removing the battery compartment cover and intentionally leave the remote face down.
If these tests don't seem to make any difference to the remote, then it is likely that the receiver end in the set is faulty.

I turned tv off with remote, now it will not turn back on. i have tried remote and button on front of tv.


Check the remote with new batteries. If it do not work, remote control has the trouble. You can't switch the set ON by its front panel power switch, as it has been shut down by remote command.

My matsui tv 28WNO5(A) will not turn on from standby


Try pressing the small reset button on the back, it works, and you will not loose any stored information which caused the unit to go in the stand by mode.

or
Have you tried turning it off for an hour and then turning it back on. This happens to me quite often and leaving it off for a while ususally allows it to come back on. Also have you tried to press the TV/AV button on the remote as sometimes it switches to TV mode when its on standby and then standby won't work as its on TV mode and needs to go back on to AV mode. Basically just press the AV button on the digibox remote and then try standby.

or
if the batteries are removed and left for about 20 minutes before being replaced again, everything works as it should.
or
if any of the above suggestions does not work then you have to open the unit and on the main board of the tv there is a thin mini tube light like component called fuse you will have to replace that fuse .the fuse is very very cheap and you can easily get it at any electronics shop.and if still the unit does not work then there is a major fault in the power supply board and should be taken to the service center for diagnosing the fault that it is repairable or not.but i hope the above information provided will definately help you to solve your problem.

My Technika LCD32-229 is just over 12 months old and has suddenly decided not to respond to the remote or on/off control on the TV. If I turn of the power at the mains for 30 seconds or so, it will then...


HERE'S THE ANSWER TO YOUR PROBLEM:

The possible reason why your TV doesn't respond to your remote is probably the battery of your remote. Maybe it has been used up to it's fullest capacity, so try checking it up. In case, it has been used up, try to buy a new one.

The possible reason why your TV doesn't stay on is still your remote control. Maybe you have accidentally set it to "sleep mode." When it is set into sleep mode, it turns on just for a shorter time. It cannot stay on longer.

So, here's what you've got to do. Check your remote. When the remote works already, press the sleep button remote again. I hope it works for you.

Thanks.

TV doesn't respond to remote controller suddenly. I changed batteries of the controller and checked it. The controller is not a problem. I tried manual buttons on TV but it didn't work. TV turns on and...


This is caused by radio frequency and what i mean by that isyour tv unit is gettng confused with the crystals that control the connection between the tv and remote.The solution to this is to go to wal mart and buy a new universal remote and in the package should be an instruction manual to set the remote to the tv , First find your tv name in the pamplet,second there will show a code of the remote type it in and enjoy.

Philips TV HDMI CEC EasyLink tries to control Cable set top box


I finally found a fix to this! YAY. I thought I might have to return the TV. I have the Phillips 42PFL5603D, but should work for other models.

On the TV press menu picture settings---picture---dynamic contrast (turn off) AND active control, turn off
If you have Comcast Moto box: on the Cable box go menu--->setup--->cablebox set up---RF BYbass set to ON
If you have a non-Comcast Moto Box, I'm sure there is an RF bypass setting in the menu. You'll just have to look for it. Another fix was close saying to only turn of the active control, but it took all 3 of these for it to work consistently. The latter let it work for all of 30 seconds.
