Red light on power cord

My light on the power cord just went red all of a sudden and the machine shut off. The light on the power cord is still red and now when I push the power button on the console I get nothing. Please help! I haven't tried anything to solve it cause I don't know what to try.

Try unplugging the power brick from the wall and the power cable from the 360. Then reconnect these cables and try powering the system on again. if the problem still continues, look at the front of the console, you should see a circular light. If 3 of the lights are solid red you will need to contact 1-800-4MYXBOX, as that indicated hardware failure.

How do I fix the problem with my TV? Details are below.

Normally on the Panasonic tv this will call for a service call. The key to getting it repaired correctly is to check for a certified Samsung repair shop because most of the parts come from Samsung. Now if you want to do your own research call to 800 number for Panasonic Tv see if there are any problems with that model that the manufacturer has extended but does not post. I had one repaired that the red light on also so I understand and it went out approximately 4 3/4 years. If your in the Atlanta area use Norman electronics they have repaired hundreds on tvs for me due to my work.

The light went off on my house and when the electricity got back my lcd viewsonic 32" N3252 doesn't turn on also the Red light is off any ideas


When power suddenly goes off from the main source, it tends to damage a component or the other inside a unit, because it was sudden and the unit did not go through a proper shut down process.

If your unit does not come on, and there is no sign that power is coming in, then it means there is a power problem, because there is no power supplied to the unit.

First try to plug the television to another another power outlet to see if it works, then try using another power cord, after doing that, also try to plug the cord to you HDMI port, if it does not come on still, then it means the power panel is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Take care and good luck.

TV suddenly shut off, blinking red light in power button

The TV's power supply capacitors probably went bad.

Check with a mobile tv repair co. to see if it is worth fixing.
