Re: RCA SCENIUM trys to start up but wont start

I kind of had the same problem..I had picture..and the display would flash 5 times. Per the manual it said the lamp needed replaced. After reading a post by someone that had the same problem and replaced the lamp, it still didnt fix the problem..I took my set in to the repair shop. Turned out to be the light engine..$1000.00 for the part...$250.00 for labor! The tv was only 15 months old..and not even used on a regualr basis..I maybe had 300 hrs on it. I did not buy the extended warranty (will for my next tv!!!) but after many heated conversations with RCA..they agreed to pay for the part..I got stuck with the labor, atleast that was better than the whole bill. Anyway..starting to act up again..after only 5 months..bottom line..I'll never buy an RCA again!!

Why wont my Tv turn back on after the electricity went off?

Did you have your television plugged into an outlet with a surge protector? Does it do anything when trying to turn it on? Might have fried it when power came back on or when elec. went off.

Sony KDL 46HX820 turns on, then off and red light blinks four times.

Re: Bravia KDL46EX720. Red LED blinks 4 times and TV wont turn on. What is the problem?

Do a Power Reset.

1. Turn off the TV.
2. Unplug the power cord of the TV from the electrical outlet.
3. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds.
4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. (If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.)
5. Turn on the TV.

If the issue still persists after performing power reset, that may be an indication that the TV needs service. You may refer to this link to locate the nearest Sony authorized service center in your area.

Tv went out when power went off, will not come back on

You NEED 2 go to a RETAIL Store, and purchase a SURGE PROTECTOR. It MUST have a switch, maybe a lit switch. When NOT watching this TV, TURN the POWER OFF. This WILL save burnout of the POWER transformer, and NOT use electricity, saving U money. When turning on this tv, U MUST have an electric Fan, to blow air across the electrical boards. This too, will add LONGIVITY, to the overheated electical circuits. I hope this helps.

Power in house went out. T.V. wont turn on.

Did you have a surge protector on the TV? Have you tried unplugging it for 5 minutes, if not try that. If it still won't work contact your local electrical power provider and start a claim for damages from the power outage.

We had bad weather lights went out ..had tv plugged into a power surge plug that i have power back tv wont come on

Some will say a surge protector will save electronics. I can tell you they may not help at all. A power surge is extremely fast and can over ride the surge protector. If you think you can repair this TV, I would certainly remove the back cover and inspect. Occasionally the only problem for repair is to replace the main fuse. Remember, this happens rarely. Most cases after a surge the TV will need to be inspected by a TV tech. Almost anything, in a power surge will damage the TV. There is no certain area that will not be damaged, expect it any where. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Olevia 37" no picture

check the TV power cord first., try to plug any other appliances on the same surge protector or outlet, like electric fan, electric iron., see if's work., if it does, probably the power supply of your TV is in trouble.
