TV Switches itself back to standby mode continuously

When I switch the TV On from standby mode via the remote, the TV will switch itself off - or rather back to standby mode. This happens continuously until I have switched it back on - on average 20 times. This number varies from between 1 to 30. It's as though the TV needs to warm up before deciding to stay on. Any help is much appreciated.

Re: TV Switches itself back to standby mode continuously

If your remote is ok then this is due to power supply failure in your tv. either it is loose in oscillator ckt in switching section or it has failed. if not tech person call tech to fix it. not a major problem.

Why does the lg crt tv model 21fs9rg am working on keep reverting to stand by after i have switched it on?

Could be a bad remote. turn the TV on and then take the batteries out of the remote to see if it shuts off. If not, you know that the remote is bad or the batteries are low. I would suspect the power supply next.

My matsui tv 28WNO5(A) will not turn on from standby

Try pressing the small reset button on the back, it works, and you will not loose any stored information which caused the unit to go in the stand by mode.

Have you tried turning it off for an hour and then turning it back on. This happens to me quite often and leaving it off for a while ususally allows it to come back on. Also have you tried to press the TV/AV button on the remote as sometimes it switches to TV mode when its on standby and then standby won't work as its on TV mode and needs to go back on to AV mode. Basically just press the AV button on the digibox remote and then try standby.

if the batteries are removed and left for about 20 minutes before being replaced again, everything works as it should.
if any of the above suggestions does not work then you have to open the unit and on the main board of the tv there is a thin mini tube light like component called fuse you will have to replace that fuse .the fuse is very very cheap and you can easily get it at any electronics shop.and if still the unit does not work then there is a major fault in the power supply board and should be taken to the service center for diagnosing the fault that it is repairable or not.but i hope the above information provided will definately help you to solve your problem.

Tv wont switch on with remote or the button on top of the tv. The standby button is on (red). sometimes it comes on by itself and switches off by itself (onto standby mode) not sure of the model as its a...

It could be one of a couple of problems really, the first one may be that your analogue signal is being switched over to digital which is happening across the UK at the moment, buying a digital receiver would resolve this straight away. It could be a problem with the ariel connection to the TV, check that its all pushed in properly at the back of the TV. Failing this then its a problem with the TV set, the fact that the set produces a picture on other sources (dvd) implies that if it is a fault with the TV its with the ariel connection.

Try Checking your remote and make sure it did not short out by taking out the batteries and see if it continues turning on and off. if so then i would recommend replacing the remote. if this does not work try putting tape over the ir receiver and see if it continues, this will check for interference.

Sony KV-24FV300 changing video input by itself - possessed?

It sounds like the tact switches (on the control panel) are defective.....This usually happens after some one cleans the screen with a spray and it drips onto the board, Or they went bad on their own.

SHARP 29" TV switching off to Standby

have you tried changing the batteries just to elimate this problem

change them

sometimes if the batteries are low in electronic devies, they send a wek signal to its receiver (your tv),

your tv gets confused and then switches itself to standby

if you have changed the batteries and this problem still persists

it can only then be th PSU or power supply unit, take it to your local tv repair shop of mastercare somewhere like that, its going to be cheaper to get it repaired than replacing the whole tv

PSU'S generally 20 to 50 pounds depending on model

don't deo it yourself though unless you've got a capacitor discharger (or a nice 25KV will be on its way to your body)

hop this helps mate, let me know how you get on
