SOURCE: No red light on TV so doesn't turn on, yet cable box lit

hello, check you power cable make sure it is properly attached.
test your power outlet, also try using another outlet if possible,
try reseting your fuse box switches.
if it is not your outlets then you may have a fualty power supply, if theres no red light means theres no power reaching the internal circuts it may be numerous reason for this or even a simple blown fuse on the powersupply, but basically no red light means no power.
unfortunatly one or more of your internal board may need to be serviced or even replaced this is not something you want to do your self the voltages inside of these systems are very dangerous and you need model specific service manual,schematic, and electronic circut test equipment. if your electronically inclined you can check to see if your fuses are blown but i dont recomend it unless you have some basic safety and electronics training.
besides this most of these tv's need to have there voltages tested and adjusted after board replacements.

suggestion: search for a qualified service center who can give you a estimate for repair, search around some companies offer free estimates
and will even come out to your home and check and repair your tv on the spot.
if it is under warantee you may be able to get a replacement or repair without charge. if not then get your estimate find out whats wrong and find out what service center offers the best price for the service or repair.

hope this helps

good luck and happy holidays

Sony KV29X5U No picture, red light flashes 4 times then out then 4 times etc. Is this worth fixing?


What is the exact model number of the Sony TV? Check if the same issue occurs when connected to a different source device like DVD player or when the TV is not connected to the cable box. Disconnect the connected devices and turn ON the TV to check if the red light still flashes

I purchased a LG 32lx4dc tv from a hotel liquidator but i can't it to work at home? I don't have the remote. Can I access the menu using a universal remote? Will I ever get it to work at home?


Here is what worked for me:

1. On the LST-4100A box, there is a black, removable card with an F-connector (Cable In) and a RJ-11 (Data). Unscrew the two retaining screws and remove this card. There is an antenna-type connector on the inside that will need to be disconnected from the card.

2. Connnect the control box to the TV via the serial cable (Display Control).

3. Plug in power cables to TV and control box. Turn on TV.

4. There are two lights on the control box. Make sure the "Power" light is on solid and the "Status" light is flashing quickly. If not, cycle power on both the TV and the control box.

5. Press "Menu" and hold the button until the menu disappears.

6. Quickly, press "2 6 6 3" then press "Enter". A small menu should open in the upper left.

7. Scroll down to "DBox". Change to "Off". TV will restart.

8. Disconnect the serial cable from the TV. The remote controls should now work normally with the control box disconnected.

I have a dct700 which is displaying only a red light next to the messages and no other lights. I have disconnected and reconnected the box several times and have also checked all the cables. I am not...


those are the only 2 lights on a dct700
the red one usually means you have a message under the menu (probably junk mail about upgrading to video, internet and phone)

try to find out if your on the right channel.
-if a cable goes from your box to the tv use the buttons on your tv to get to 3 or 4
-if the red, white and yellow goes to your tv look for a input or source button on your tv and press it repeatedly till you find the correct input

to clear that message after you get a picture go to menu and try to find something about messages.

Tv will not light up.


I do not have expertise in cable TV systems. A power failure when you have the TV connected to a system which is normally always on or on standby may need resetting if interrupted. Try the TV on an aerial or with its scart input, but disconnected from the cable unit. The blinking red light indicates a fault
