The protected mode kicks in when there is a safety issue with the receiver. This usually comes from an overload to the system via a short in the system or perhaps a surge in power. Your receiver shuts down, and you'll need to shut the entire system down to fix it.
In some older homes, some of the wiring doesn't deliver the "cleanest" power, delivering minor power surges to the items you plug directly into the wall. If your receiver is plugged directly into the wall, purchase a surge protector to stop this

SOURCE: Fuzzy pic on Dynex 32 LCD TV

I am sumising that you have checked the menu controls on your tv and are recieving your signal from the cable box , so therefore if it is not comong from the Aerial and direct from the cable company then the picture should be clear .. However sometimes people dont check to see if the signal is RGB or composite from the box RGB is usually best if you have a scart socket connection or SVHS if your set has that capability .. sometimes people have an old VHs recorder and the sinal is coming from that to the set through the Aerail fly lead if it is you will probably find they are conflicting giving you a poor picture retune your Video to another channel instructions should be in its manuel if not come back to me ... reagrds Vortash

SOURCE: My dynex tv will not come on seems to be stuck in standby mode.

It sounds like the main power supply is trying to startup but failed because there is short circuits or the main power supply is bad. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

SOURCE: Dynex DX-LCD37: Missing cable channels caused by bad tv tuners?

That "Tech" is full of hot air, I have never heard of such rubbish! http://www.hdtvreview.com/pdf/dynex-dx-lcd37-09-02-manual.pdf
Above is your manual. have a look for your self. Now IF you can do Picture in Picture, then technically, there are TWO tuners, BUT one cannot work, and the other not, I do NOT know what that Tech is on about I suspect he is BSing you... If channels are Blocked, then it is maybe something wrong with the cable, or the strength of the signal, or something else, But there are NO "Tuners" that are going faulty, this is NOT how a TV receiver works.

Does this Dynex model have multiple tuners: NO If so, can they go bad : Yes, as could any electronic bit. maybe the ONLY tuner has faulted, but I don't think so. Tuners usually work, or don't. but still may pay to take to a professional and ask them to check the tuner?
Are the tuners replaceable: YES.
will the rest of the tuners eventually go out and I will end up replacing the TV:. NO, well depending if there is any fault, maybe.
Again I have never heard such BS, EVER.

My HDTV went out in a lightening storm. What could it be?


Is your TV plugged into a surge protector? If not it very well may have gotten a power surge during the lightening storm that fried components in the TV.
Or is the TV connected to a cable box? It could be that the cable box took the hit if it's not plugged into a surge protector.
Or a possibility of both.

I have a 47 inch sanyo. model# dp46848. A transformer blew in a lightning storm and now the tv will not power on. The power light will come on for 5-10 seconds and then shut off. The tv was on a surge...


But, was the cable/satellite feed protected? Lightning can come in from anywhere, not just the power line. The bad thing about the way cable and satellite installers ground things is, they ground to the same grounding system that the house does, which can backfeed the surge through the entire house - it shouldn't, but it can.

I would, however, contact the maker of the surge strip and attempt to file a damage claim. They all come with a liability warranty of some sort.

Try your cable box on a different tv set and also try connecting the cable directly into the t.v, if that makes no difference then your tv set may have a power supply problem that was caused by an a.c line surge during that storm.

Blinking light wont turn on Toshiba TV CE19H15


Yes, it's quite possible that you indeed may have sufferd from a Power Spike, induced by lightning during the storm, esspecially if plugged in during said storm. I have had quite a few customers ova the years with this exact problem. I always advise my clients to unplug ALL devices during a storm, and for ones that simply cannot be unplugged then some sort of Spike/Surge Protection device MUST be used. As a matter of interest, I have written many a report to insurance companies to support a claim for a replacement.
