Tv not responding to remote and now will not turn back on!

I had come home about a week ago and pushed the power button from my remote but my tv did not respond. So I just went to the front panel and pushed power but once the tv turned on, the volume was on full blast! I used the front panel volume decrease to get the volume down, but when I stopped pushing the button, the tv increased its volume to full blast again by itself! Naturally I just turned the tv off for a few moments. I tried the remote again, no response again, so I used the panel power button. The tv volume was still full blast when it turned on but after I decreased the volume it stayed this time. The picture is and has been perfectly fine and the tv was working fine. The next day the problem started all over and now once we turned it off from frustration of having to manually use the panel to change channels, it now will not turn on at all. I have changed batteries from my remote, reprogrammed my remote, pushed system reset several times, unplugged it for a while, bought a new surge charge, and even held the menu and device panel buttons for 10 sec and tried to turn the t.v. on again! What other options do I have or what may be the issue at hand and possible parts that may need to be replaced?? Thanks!!

Re: Tv not responding to remote and now will not turn...

Front panel buttons (switches) are the usual suspect. Disconnect the wires going to the front panel, plug Tv in, wait a minute, use remote to turn on. This has solved many equivalent problems.

Here is how to do so for similar model WS-65611:
1. Remove the Speaker Grilles and Unit Front by pulling forward.
2. Remove 2 screws (a) to remove the Control Panel.
3. Remove the Board Front by removing 4 screws (b).
4. Remove the 4 screws (c) holding the Screen Assembly.
5. Lift the Screen Assembly up and away from the cabinet.

I have a Sharp flat panel model LC-20SH4U. The units power LED light is red. No effect (sound or picture) when remote or on/off switch is activated. The LED light slightly blinks.

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

Hope this may help;

My RCA HDTV D52W23 Will not Turn On!!

Trying installing a new power supply. This is the main problem with tv's with the issue. But if you just bought it I would try to get my money back from where I bought it from. Installing a power supply for a tv is not that hard at all.

Need operating manual

if you are asking about the ” innovage” large tv remote… you do not need a code booklet.
maunally turn your tv on
point the remote at the tv
push ” code search”
a red button will blink
push the ” TV” button
then push the upper right botton with a circle and line on it…
the red burron will blink during each push…
at some point the tv will turn off…
push the “enter” button
the tv will then work with the remote.
it it takes too long to catch so to speak…
do not turn the TV off…
during the process… go ahead and push search code again..then TV
then on/off botton sometimes this speeds up the process.
i’ve found every once in a while the large remote stops responding to the on/off button…
just repeat the steps.

We hope this helps please rate/vote for me if it does thanks

TV was working earlier, today came home no green power light no nothing

I looked up the manual online - after you replace the bulb, you need to reset the bulb life timer. Using the TV remote push the menu button, SETUP menu, select the lamp reminder option to reset the hours to zero. That might help the status indicators.

Mitsubishi wt-42413 Power problem

Okay try to distinguish if the three blinks is 1 pause then 2 blinks or 2blinks pause 1 blink. As the set will only blink a two digit code 12 meaning no error detected and 21 meaning the set is hutdown due to xray protection.

WD-62725 Need to reset to start

Good Day;

When TV will not turn on press the menu & input buttons on TV's panel, hold for 5 seconds. Count the blinks, eg; blinks 2 then pauses then blinks again. It should do this 3 times.l With that information respond back.Or the d-board is bad.

Good Luck.

TV remote will not work properly

I have a Mitsubishi WD-52725 TV, too, and have experienced the same problems with it. My solution to the remote not responding is to push the reset button on the front of the TV (to the left of the Power button) with a paper clip and wait for the green light to stop blinking (about 1 minute). Then, turn it back on and try the remote again. Recently, my remote stopped responding when pushing certain buttons on it. I removed the batteries, and all of the little screws including the one inside the battery compartment and gently cleaned the contacts inside the remote and the circuit board with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. After putting it back together, it works fine now.
