Replaced the box yesterday but getting message on the tv saying 'check signal cable'.. the hookup to the new box is OK...going to have the cable outside checked, any ideas about this message and could it mean the TV is fried as a result of the power issue? thank you for you help...

It sound to me like a defective light engine. If so this is a very expensive repair if you set not under warranty or a service contract. This could have been damaged by a power surge.

SOURCE: Sennheiser hookup to noncompatable Samsung DLP TV

Ok if I understand what you are saying. You are going from your TVs audio jack into an amplifier TEAC AG-V8050 and then into the Sennheiser T1250 unit? This is done to amplify the sound so your wife can hear the TV via Infared into headphones I am guessing. The connections would have to be as follows. TV RCA jack (Installed by someone to TV audio Output section, most likely the speaker) to the Amplifier TEAC AG-V8050 via RCA cable then from the Amplifier via RCA cable to the Sennheiser TI 250 IR Transmitter. The transmitter then takes the audio input and turns it into a digital signal which is transmitted via IR to headphones which your wife is using. First of all the amp TEAC AG-V8050 is not needed. what happend here is the person doing the installation took sound off of a preamp to avoid having to deal with the TV volume control. This works but it makes matters harder. So here is how you troubleshoot this problem: 1) Disconnect the amplifier and plug the RCA jack of the TV into the RCA jack of a set of amplified Mono headphones. (This is to determine if sound is coming from the TV) If not the problem is in the TV audio section and you will need to take it to a TV repair shop. 2) If audio is coming through the headset the trouble is in the amp or the sennhiser unit. To test the sennhiser unit: plug the sennhiser into the audio out of a VCR and listen in the headphones for sound. If you have sound, the sennheiser is good and the problem may be in the amplifier, but if you do not have sound the the sennheiser is bad. 3)Connect the audio out of the VCR into the audio in of the amplifier and plug the output of the amplifier into the sennheiser which tested good with just the VCR alone. If no sound is present then the amp is your culprit. Once you find out which component is the problem, I would suggest finding a rapair shop here on FitYa to repair your unit or having an electronics technician come to you to fix the bad component. This should help, Thank you, Shuttle83

Most likely the digital board will have to be replaced. Not a cheap part, so you might concider using the component inputs for now if too expensive.

SOURCE: Toshiba 52hm84 DLP-HDMI Component has been compromised?

This is a wild guess, but I believe that you are being **** by the movie industry. The HDMI protocol includes a form of DRM (Digital Rights Management) for high resolution content called: High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection Basically this means that the media (disk or broadcast) instructs the player (in your case the cable box) to insist that any downstream devices (your TV) is industry and DRM compliant. Specifically this evil protection scheme is designed to plug the analog hole and make it impossible for you to record or copy the movie by using an analog output from your TV. This even restricts the size of the TV you can play the movie on, thus preventing pubs and bars from displaying the content on big screen TVs without paying royalties. The message means that the manufacturer of your TV has refused to toe the industry line. 1984 Anyone ? Martin

Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

I have a Samsung 61 inch dlp tv and a tree fell outside of my house and now tv wont turn on and is making a noise


Maybe it is already on. You might want to explain how the two are connected. The only assumption I can make is it hit the power line and caused a surge.

My tv works at my friend house, but doesn't work in my apartment. However all other electrical devices work at my apartment, model is (SLED5000)


Sounds strange indeed. All other devices; except the TV works fine with all power sockets at your house!! Just replace the power pin, at the end of the TV power cord and check. There is nothing more to check for you. It it too do not help you, contact any service technician. Electro help

Why won't my TV turn on after a storm?


Your TV might very easily be destroyed now, from lightening damage. Lightening can come in on the cable, on the power line, all sorts of unexpected ways. I've personally been struck by lightening, plenty hard enough to destroy almost any electronic device... and I was working in a basement at the time.

If the tv will not turn on it is safe to assume that the electrical storm did damage something in your television.

The chain must be properly sharpened to cut efficiently and the oil pump must be feeding oil to the chain/bar. Check the oiling by running the saw with the bar tip near some cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil on to the cardboard. If not, remove the bar and chain and run the motor for a few moments--it should ooze oil out of a side port that exits near the drive end of the bar. If still nothing, check the oil tank filter for plugging, then the oil pump itself--it may have a plastic gear that has stripped it's teeth. Once you get oil from the side port, clean the oil passages in the drive end of the bar, and reinstall the bar and chain. Hope this helps!

Samsung DLP tv w/ black picture will not power off.


If you are not able to bring up the TV's onscreen menu as well, it appears you have a problem with the TV's mainboard.  You didn't mention if the TV had any blinking error codes so if there aren't any lights flashing on the front, are there any on the sides or back to indicate the problem?  Not all TV's present error codes, but since the TV is maintaining power, it's worth a shot to look.  You could try a power drain:
1. Unplug the product's power cable so the device is not grounded to the house. 2. Press and HOLD the product's own power button for 1 minute to drain the capacitors. 3. Plug the product back into a wall outlet and try to turn it on.
Note: This procedure works with battery operated devices as well so remove the batteries and hold down it's power button.  Electricity can remain in capacitors and on circuit boards enough to prevent normal functionality. By clearing the residue electricity, your product will have a fresh start and many times this will resolve a buggy or non-responsive device that appears to be dead.
If this still doesn't resolve the issue, service would be required so you would want to contact Samsung regardless of your warrant standing for service options.

No Power to my TV after power outage


A lot of times its simply a fuse that goes out. Either way someone is going to have to open it up and inspect the fuses first. It 's a fairly inexpensive service call.

Hopefully the fuse took the hit from the storm.
