Tv will not turn on

So my tv will not turn on from the buttons on the front of the tv set. You stated that would indicate a problen from the inside of the tv. So that would mean to call a repair man? Even though the tv makes noises like it wants to turn on?

Re: Tv will not turn on

Hi Kate01, If it won't turn on, it'll either be a problem with the central circuit board, the connections between the button row and the circuit board, or something more fundamental to do with the display system. My money would be on the central circuitry, but any of these could easily be responsible. Whatever it is exactly though (difficult to be certain without running 'hard' tests onsite), you're going to need a repair man - you should never open up your TV set. The capacitors they contain hold charge for a long time after you've turned them off, and that can be lethal of you prod the wrong area. Even that may be too expensive if it's a central board problem though, so you may just have to get a new set. Your best bet would be to take it into a small repair store and get their onsite advice after they've run some checks on it - they may be able to have it returned to you by the end of the day, but, as I say, your TV may have seen better days altogether. If this helps, I'd appreciate you giving me an appropriate rating. Regards, badegine

Zenith SMS1943S made 1995 Need code to switch to dvd status


1) check the RCA cable connection from your DVD to TV screen.
make sure that each cable is in the right place (for DVD player yellow cable = video/ red and white cable = audio) (TV screen: yellow cable = video IN /white and red = audio IN

2) from your TV screen locate and check for A/V IN socket. it's either at the back/front or side of the screen.

note: some of TV screen does have 2 A/V inputs

3) Facing the front of your TV screen, locate a button indicating "A/V" or "AV" or a box picture having a forward arrow inside.

note: if you locate the said button and your screen have 2 A/V inputs press the said button until the right input where you connect your dvd cable been set.

TV auto shut off-power indicator light blinking-won't turn back on

You can also try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works..

If you are having some problems with your Sony Television, then this post is for you. Generally speaking, when there is trouble with your Sony Television set -- it indicates the issue in either the diagnostic mode, or even more commonly by flashing a series of LED blinks or flashes on the front of your television. Each set or frequency of the blinks indicates a very specific problem with the television itself. In some cases, you may be able to repair the television set yourself -- or in the worst case you may need to order parts, call a local repair shop to the have a repairman sent out, or even purchase a new television set.

First off, here are the list of codes and what they generally mean on my set (which applies to many recent model Sony Television sets. Sony has provided a "self-diagnosis function" with your TV, that in the case of abnormalities or problems the LED or red blinking light on the Timer/Standby indicator flashes a number of times to indicate the issue. Here are the values of the various blinks.

* 0 times, Diagnosis: Power does not turn on. Possible causes include: Power cord is not plugged in, Fuse is burned out (F6001) (G board). Symptoms of the problem: Power does not come on, No power is supplied to the unit, AC power supply is faulty.
* 2 times, Diagnosis: B overcurrent (OCP). Possible causes: H. OUT (Q8024) is shorted. (D board), +B PWM (Q8035, 8038) is shorted. (D board) Symptoms of the problem: Power does not come on, Load on power line is shorted.
* 3 times, Diagnosis: +B overvoltage (OVP). Possible causes: IC501 is faulty (G board), IC5002 is faulty (G board). Symptoms of the problem: TV has entered standby mode.
* 4 times, Diagnosis: Vertical deflection stopped. Possible causes: +- 15V is not supplied. (D board), IC8003 is faulty. (A board) Symptoms of the problem: TV has entered standby state after horizontal raster, Vertical deflection pulse is stopped, Power line is shorted or power supply is stopped.
* 5 times, Diagnosis: White balance failure (Not balanced) Possible causes: Video out (IC7101, 7201, 7301) is faulty (CR, CG, CB board), CRT drive (IC309) is faulty (A board), G2 is improperly adjusted. Symptoms of the problem: No raster is generated, CRT cathode current detection reference pulse output is small.
* 6 times, Diagnosis: LOW B OCP/OVP (Overcurrent/over voltage). Possible causes: +5 line is overloaded. (A, B boards), +5 line is shorted. (A, B boards). Symptoms of the problem: No picture.
* 7 times, Diagnosis: Horizontal deflection stopped. Possible cause: Q8035, 8038 is shorted. (D board)
* 8 times, Diagnosis: High voltage error. Possible cause: T8005 is faulty. (D board)
* 9 times, Diagnosis: Audio error. Possible causes: +- 19V line is shorted. (A, B boards), IC708 is faulty. (A board), PS701 or PS702 is opened. (A board). Symptoms of the problem: No sound

If you would like to attempt a DIY, you will need a service manual to guide you. You can find one here:

However, be aware that there are voltages inside your TV set that can kill, even if unplugged.

Tv wonn't shut off

Have you tried unplugging the set for several minutes and then plugging it back in?

There is a separate circuit in the TV that turns the set on & off with either the front panel button or remote. The front power button does not switch the 110V directly.

The circuit could be either be a relay or solid state switch that turns on the main power supply.

It sounds like you have a problem with that circuit and you'll need to take the set in to be serviced.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Power light blinking

The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

My tv will not turn on.

First of all, forget about the remote and see if the TV functions normally using the buttons on the front of the set itself. If the TV will not power on with the power button on the set itself, then something is wrong inside the TV. If the set works fine from the front buttons but no longer responds to that remote, then the remote has either gone bad or was accidently set to a different brand. In this case, look for the original book that came with the remote (or TV if it is the original remote) and follow the instructions for setting the remote back to Zenith. Try that and post your results here.

Flashing power indicator

Sounds like a power supply problem unless there is a short in the deflection circuits causing the power light to flash. I'm afraid it'll take a technican to figure out what is wrong. If it's more than 7 years old, you might consider replacing it.
