Question about Sony KV-32S42 32" TV

1 Answer

Dmtech TV is stuck in stanby mode

I can't turn the TV on. No matter how many times I press the on/standby button or use the remote, the TV stays in standby.

Someone suggested it was the power supply but I've tested that - no luck.

Can anyone help?

    but I've tested the power supply on another TV and it worked fine.

    Hi, I took the back panel off - no sign. I looked under the main circuit board and still no sign.

    thanks anyway

    To find the fuse you have to unplug tv from AC then remove back panel or open case of tv , if you follow the cable that as been disconnetted (may be dangerous if you plug in ) i hope will be easy to find the fuse that can be blown . if you have a meter can check 
    if the fuse is open or short .after this check and if did you change the fuse you can try to plug the cable making attention the risk of touching some electric part of tv
    thank u rate me!!!

My tv is RCA 20B500T by pressing wrong buttons in the menu it was set standby mode and now i can't turn on it How can i change the stanby mode to normal mode?

Unplug the TV, wait about 5 minutes, plug it again. This should overwrite the standby mode. Read the manual if you have one.
