Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Digistar HD LCD TV model LC-4010D. I have no remote for the TV. When I turn it on, the blue light turns on to show that it has power. But no picture or sound appears. It is currently plugged into a rogers cisco cable box but I've tried different cable sources. What do I do to get a picture?? Do I NEED a remote in order to use this TV or should everything work without a remote? Serial No. 766B00LC4010D000078

I'm not familiar with the tv set, however here are some things to try.

It's possible that the tv powers up in stand-by mode, so you'll need to find a way to turn it on completely. See if there are channel +/- buttons on the tv and try them.

If the remote might be necessary, try to see if you have friends/family with a universal remote control, such as a Logitech Harmony, to lend to you for testing. This way you can avoid spending money for nothing on a remote.

Googling on this brand and model gives a lot of negativity though: a lot of problems posting, but no support or even an online manual. Personally I've never heard of Digistar. It might've been a bad investment.

When the TV is on, need to check the back light is on(go back side & look into through)

If the back light is on -- need to exchange the Main Board
no back light -- exchange the Power Board --- 95%
exchange the LCD panel --- 5%(inverter)

SOURCE: polaroid tlx-03210b lcd tv tv will not turn on

Yes I think that would be the problem, aswell as some dry (cracked solder joints). A bad cap is usually bulged on the top and looks like this:

SOURCE: no picture or sound, light comes on in the front and have to unplug tv to turn it off.

I had this exact problem on my Vizio 47" HDTV. I removed the speakers and all the screws on the back cover. Took the cover off and located the fuses on the largest circuit board. The are in the upper right hand corner of the board. There are 3 of them in a row labeled LF 1.5, LF 3.0 and LF 3.0. The are white in color with copper ends. I took a volt meter and measured continuity across all fuses individually and found the LF 1.5 to be blown. The guy at the electronics store sold me a barrel 1.5A fuse and told me to soldier it across the top of the blown fuse. It took an extra set of hands but the TV works perfectly.

Go to turn on tv and all I get is flashing red light and tv won't turn on. Was working the other day.what do I check?Sharp LC-26GA5U


Hi,

Try unplugging the TV from the power point and leave unplugged for 5 min.
Or the batteries in the remote may be flat, try replacing the batteries.
If this doesn't work the TV may have a fault.

I hope this helps

THe problem is in the set top box. Or common called the tuner box. IT looses the 5 volts to the main display and thus the monitor will go into a shut down state. THESE boxes are factory repair only and must be sent off to repair.

Plasma tvs do not have "back lights" LCDs do. you probably have a bad driver board along with the upper or lower buffer board or maybe both, best to have a tv shop look at it.

Two light are blinkin' in from panel. and tv


This seems to be a common problem. I have the same issue. Repair man says its a power supply (he thinks). When the lights start blinking, press the power button on top of the tv (not the remote) and most of the time it will come on and work. I am going to try to replace my power supply and see if that fixes the issue. If so, I will update this post.

Codes for 20" Digistar model tk2055d tv remote


THE BEST SOLUTION IS THE SIMPLEST ONE.

I suffered for 1 month shopping around for an universal remote control that has a code for the Digistar tv brand. It was in vain.

So just turn to the simplest way ..the programming with code search (on the guide of the universal remote control- which has not the code for digistar brand) In the paper it tell you exactly what to do. I bought a 3 device universal remote control.
On mine it showed five easy steps to follow and the remote finds itself the code and programs it .You do not put any code ever, the remote just simply WORKS perfectly. I have solved this problem just 5 minutes ago..Oh ...I forget..On the universal remote control instruction it said that you might have to press the ON/OFF button up to 200 times , so i thought "I never tried this one, better then waist days and months will no solution. I nedded to do it only for 30 times or so beffore the TV turned OFF, and than I pressed the ok button on my remote (probably to save it- or who cares-as long as you follow the instructions). Then I could turn back on the Tv and P{LAy with the remote without putting any code as the remote it programmed for the Digiistar brand..I'm so HAPPY...Try it and spread the "new"...It is Ironic ..it was there all the time...we look in more complicated zones and do not see the solution sitting under our nose:((:)))
GOOD LUCK!

Need code


try code 238, if it does not work you will need to try the code search.

1) turn on tv
2) press and hold "code search" until indicator light comes on
3) release code search
4) press and release "tv", indicator light should blink once
5) aim remote at tv and press the power button until the tv turns off (you may have to press it 200 or so times)
6) once the tv turn off, press enter on the remote
