Stays in standbye and will only flash green (power on) twice before staying in standbye

My Emerson 32" HD Digital TV. It is not much more then a year old. Sometimes it will power on just fine, which is very rare, but it happens. Most of the time it stays in standbye mode with the red light on and when the power button is pushed it flashes green (power on) twice and then switches back to red and stays in stanbye you can push the power button over and over again and it only turns green twice then switches back. I have left my television unplugged for days at a time and it doesn't fix it can you help. What is wrong is it worth fixing? Can I do it myself??

    The model number is LC320EM8AN. It does not even power on to say digital. If I leave it off for several days it will come on every once in a while. If I push power right as i plug it in it will flash the green light 8-9 times before going to red/stanbye. At this point any time the power button is pushed as I said before it flashes approximately three times goes to red. I can push this many times in a row with the same resultss green green green then red. It does nothing more. No screen images no nothing, but when it does power on it flashes green several times then you can see it gearing up. THen I see digital something and it works great, but as soon as I shut it off it won't turn right back on. I just weight and miraculously it will work every once and a while.

    Please let me know what i need to do to fix it and how expensive it will be. Thankyou very much!!

    Thank You I just needto make sure to buy the right part and then if you can give me instructions on how to install or even fix...if that is possible the old part that would be great. Thank you

    The green light will flash when I turn on the TV. "Digital Television" flashes on and off with a set of lines that look like a barcode flashing on the screen, moving down the screen a little every few times it flashes. After about 20-30 seconds the TV goes back to standby. Have unplugged it for an hour and plugged it back on with no change.

    sorry went on vacation, but the number on my board is BA71F0F01041 I have attached some pictures of my board hoping that you might know what I can do to fix it or figure out what went wrong with it, because a new board is really expensive. Thanks for all your help.

    I'm having trouble finding the Service Manual for your TV. They may have not released it yet. So, I'm not sure about repairing the board unless is the same inverter board as mine.

    The second picture is a backlight inverter board.

    You'll have to open up the back side of the TV by removing the big cover. Remove the stand for the TV by removing the four screws in the middle. Then remove all the screws around the sides and some times there is one screw near the input ports for the TV. Remove the cover.

    The backlight inverter board should be right there. There should be white letters in one of the corners of the board. Like BA71F0F01042 for example.

    What is your board number?

    I think I can help you out here. The common problem with the Emerson TV is the Inverter Board. It's what's powers up your LCD screen. The blinking green light happens when the TV is powering up the screen. If it's not working properly, it will automatically turn itself off to prevent further damage. They call this Protection Mode.

    What model number is the TV?

    Does it say "DIGITAL TELEVISION" for about 2 seconds then shut off?
    Is your TV still under warranty?

The 6 inverter transformers on the bottom of the picture is the problem and what need to be tested.
Unplug the 6 wires that goes to the LCD screen. Use a multimeter to test for resistance from each output plug on the board. The one without the resistance is the bad one.
If this doesn't locate the bad one this way, Each plug should give out DC voltage if working properly. Test each plug for voltage.
The TV will automatically turn off in a couple of seconds like before. You'll have to keep pushing the power button to test each output plug for voltage.

Soon as you find the bad Inverter Transformer, just solder in a new one and the TV should work fine after that.
The part # for the Inverter Transformer is LTZ2PC0MS008.
Here's two places to get them:

Why does my emerson tv stay on standbye mode

Do you mean the power switch does not shut it off, or do you mean it does not show the signal you want it to show?

I can't help you over it not turning off, but if you are not seeing the signal, it may be because the TV has various alternate inputs, and has to be switched between which one you want to show, such as:

2 x HDMI input ( 19 pin HDMI Type A ) - rear
1 x VGA input ( 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15) ) - rear
2 x S-Video input ( 4 pin mini-DIN ) - rear
1 x audio line-in ( mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm ) - rear
5 x audio line-in ( RCA phono x 2 ) - rear
2 x component video input ( RCA phono x 3 ) - rear
2 x composite video input ( RCA phono ) - rear

Try using the on screen menu to bring up a choice over which input to show.
Switch it to the one you have connected to it.

I have a 56" samsung rear projection tv that won't turn on. the red standby light is lit and when i push the power i hear two clicks and the green timer light flashes quickly then the green led stays lit...

I suspect you probably have a bad LED assembly. It could be either the red, green or blue that is bad and give you the same symptom. The problem is locating parts for it as it looks like the light engine is no longer available. I would have a technician look at the TV to verify this and what parts are needed for repair.

My flatscreen emerson tv will not turn back on.

I found a way around this problem. When this happens, don't use the remote.

Walk up to the TV, then HOLD DOWN the power button and while the lights are flashing, start pushing the menu button on the TV at the SAME TIME.

Then your screen will turn on. No idea why this works. Just stumbled on it while getting ********** that this TV, I had less than a month, suddely would not come on anymore. I was about to unplug the whole thing to take back to WalMart and just started pushing button combinations and found this worked.

My emerson tv standby light is on the power light flashes twice

Mine stayed in stanby mode and all I had to do was to switch the plug to a different outlet. The power strip it was on wasn't providing enough power. It worked fine for a month before I had a problem.
