Re: tv wont turn on

Hello tvlover, The outage actually is not the problem but the spike that happened when your power came back on did the damage. That aside, you may just have a blown fuse. If you are able to and feel comfortable work with electronics, with the TV unplugged from the wall, take the back off of your TV and take a look at the line cord going into the circuit board, this will lead you to a fuse holder, look at the fuse and see if the filament inside has been blown (opened). If the fuse is blown relace it with one of the same amperage and voltage which should be written on the metal part of the fuse. Once the fuse is replaced, plug the power cord back into the wall and power it up. If it comes on and plays, that was your problem and you can turn the TV off unplug it and put the back cover back on, plug your TV back into the wall and enjoy. However if the fuse blows again, that could indicate a problem with a short somewhere in the powersupply path and that will require troubleshooting the set. Now I we have to troubleshhot this TV you will need a multimeter, an oscilloscope, and a schematic of the TV (at a minimum). If you do have electronics experience to this level and do not have this type of equipment, You will have to take the TV to a repair shop. Thank you, and I hope that it is just a blown fuse.

The picture of my Samsung DLP tv is getting darker. We have had several power outages over the past few days as a result of the hurricane. Do I need to make an adjustment?

Yes, or it can also be a burned fuse, you can take it to a service center and repair it yourself.
Or maybe the power outage just disconfigured the Tv try resetting it.

I had a power outage a couple nights ago, which has caused my television to not turn on. It is a Toshiba model CZ27T31, which was off & plugged into a surge protector at the time the storm knocked the...

Please check if your surge protector is working properly now. There is possibility that the surge protector is blown off due to high voltage surge. Check if your surge protector has a reset switch which some of the surge protectors have. If the problem still persists then you have to call the technician to replace the safety fuse which is inside the TV. The cost will not be much. I will personally recommend that you change your TV as it has outlived its life being 10 yrs old.

Model 27AF45 Toshiba TV shuts down as soon as it turns on with remote or with the manual on button. was working fine, and one day it just shut off. no lightning or power outage...just died one day.

There is power supply fault inside the TV. it could be any fault up to the E H T circuit. That is the reason the S M P S is shutting down the moment the TV is switched ON.

Do not attempt to repeat. Rectify the fault.

The tv won't turn on

We just had our set fixed for this very thing. Some advice we had was to check the set for a reset button. (Might be on the bottom of the set. But we could not find a reset button on our set.)

Ultimately we resolved the problem by calling in a Sears repairman. It was a blown fuse. It cost us $108 to fix it.

Tv will not turn on after sudden power outage

you most likely blew a fuse the only "reset" is to unplug the t.v. and leave it unplugged for a few mins, then make sure that you hold down the power button to drain the power out of the t.v.then turn it back on.... only other reset sequence is for removing the parental code

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.
