My sharp LC-46SV50U wont turn on


get the service manual and then open it up and do a voltage check on the 5v standby.

if it's not showing anything, then you need to hunt down if it's the ic, cap, or diode or a combination thereof.

During thunderstorm tv went off and wont power back on


It's very likely that your TV experienced a power surge and it fried the components within the television. I would recommend buying surge strips (can find these for $20 or so, or more depending on its features) from an electronics store and have all your nice electronics plugged into them. TV, computer, sound system, etc. Power surges are a common way of losing electronics. I'm not saying the TV is completely broken, I would need more information/hands on, but I have a feeling you're going to be buying a new one after this.

I had to unplug my tv today (actually the TV is plugged into a surge protector, so I unplugged the surge protector.) when I plugged the surge protector back in the TV wouldn't go on (acts as if its...


There should be a surge release button on the surge protector to bring the protector back to normal (should be red in color) Some surge protection devices have this option so just check if your s has it. If that is not the case than I think that you might have blown a fuse in your TV.Might just have to open it up and change the fuse within with the same ratings, but please be careful because do have high voltages so get an experienced technician to do this for you.
Good Luck.

My area recently had a power failure. Oddly, during the power failure I could still see a light coming from the Canon MG5220 printer. After power was restored, it was sometime later when I noticed that...


Unfortunately, it sounds like when the power was restored, the printer experienced a surge. If this was not plugged into a surge protector, then it's possible the switch was fried at the point of power restoration. It is important that with units such as printers, monitors, towers (computer), tv's, vcr/dvd players, almost any type of electrical appliance be plugged into a surge protector. However, even if this was true in this case - when a power shortage (outage) is experienced, it is necessary to unplug everything so that when the power is restored, nothing that is plugged in will be affected; as your printer was.
Now, you can have this fixed - either take it to a local computer repair shop; that might be able to fix it, or contact the manufacturer and inquire about sending the unit in for repair - regardless of warranty or not. If it is still under warranty, they may honor it. I am not positive they will for an accidental damage such as this, but it's worth calling them.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

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.

Magnavox 19MD358D experienced a power surge, will not turn on. What are the steps to troubleshoot?


The Maganvox TV was still under warranty, I called 1-800-705-2000 and talked with a TV Tech. He instructed me to unplug the TV for one minute. This is called a "hard-reset". I waited for one minute, plugged the TV directly into the outlet, turned the TV on and it worked.
The reason I plugged the TV directly into the outlet and not the power strip, is because I think the fuse burned out in the power-strip.

Does my samsung tv keeping turning itself off because of not having plugged it into a surge protector or is it more a fault with my tv


It is a fault with your power supply module actually inside the tv...take it to a local service center or if its under warranty take it back. surge protectors help prevent issues like this occuring due to damage to the power supply from surges but not having one wont cause these problems unless it has recieved a surge.....in future i would use a surge protector on all your expensive appliances, surges and power fluctuations are very common in mains power i live near the mines and we have power problems all the time!! hope this helps,ben

Sony Bravia LCD TV is tripping the fuse in the house


These things draw a huge surge current when turned on. What size fuse are you blowing? These things can surge 10-12 amps on turn-on. What about a fuse with a reset button. They will take alittle more surge before they go. Don't matter about the insignia working before because the cheaper sets tend to stay powered up more when off....thus not surging on from a dead start. Could you try a different plug on a different circuit/fuse? and see if that makes a difference. If you have a 15 amp fuse, then your pretty close with other stuff plugged in. What size is your service? Do you still have an original 60 amp box with screw in fuses? Is it an old house?

All TV's in house failing, a few at a time


Hey PNorris,

If multiple electronic devices are failing in your home all at once, I would probably first have to ask if your home recently experienced an electrical storm or major power surge of any kind.

Normally the effects of such large-scale surges are immediately noticeable - TV's and other major electronic devices may fail to turn on, fuses may be blown or circuit breakers tripped, and in some cases electrical wiring may be melted.

If nothing like this has happened recently, low-level power surges may still be a potential cause of this problem. When the motor from any large appliance (such as an air conditioner or refrigerator) turns on or off, it often diverts power to and from other electronic devices using the same circuits. This fluctuation in electrical current may result in low-level power surges to every connected device. While not immediately noticeable, these low-level surges can often cause the eventual failure of (and gradually degrading quality in) many audio/video components.

Typically, the easiest way to avoid situations like this is to make sure that outlets are not overloaded and surge protectors are used with every major electrical device in your home. For older homes however, replacing the house's wiring may be necessary. Homes that were originally built at the turn of the 20th century may not always have wiring capable of supporting the electrical needs of many modern appliances.

Ultimately, this means that in addition to contacting your local TV repair facility, you may want to also speak with an electrician. This is probably the best way to determine whether or not power surges have caused these failures, and may give you a better idea how to proceed.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
