SOURCE: No picture, but power is on...

How many times does the POWER led blink per sec? (dont worry about the OPC)

2x = power supply (not as expensive to fix)
3x = Main board (expensive to fix)

If you have tried to reset the TV by unplugging it for 2 minutes and still have the same issue then it is time to bring the set to a repair shop.

SOURCE: TV SCREEN GOES BLANK

Most of you that are having problems,it has nothing to do with your screens themselves,but with the capacitors in the power supply,the caps,over heat and the tops pop out and the dry out and are no longer any good,a soldering iron,solder,and flux are really all that is needed to repair this problem,get good caps at radio shack,or equal location,pay attention to polarity on the two contacts on the bottom of the caps,replace all that are poped up

SOURCE: Sharp LC-37SB24U will not turn on

From the information you have provided failed capacitors in the power supply is likely causing the problem. The safety circuitry shuts the TV set down when it detects a problem. This model of TV has over 2,000 parts which include millions of transistors inside the integrated circuits. The capacitors will change value, leak and become defective. Resistors will change value and burn. Integrated circuits and transistors can go bad. This can cause other components to become defective, which can have a domino effect and cause other parts to fail. Replacing one defective part may make the TV operate for a short time but the part will fail again since if the parts that caused the failure to begin with are not replaced. The only way to know for sure what is causing the problem, which parts that are no longer within factory specs and for proper repair all the electronics must be diagnosed by someone with the correct electronic test equipment and the skills to use the test equipment. The repair should cost about $250 if carried into a TV repair shop. A small TV repair shop will often charge less than a large repair facility.

After a lightening storm, my power surge strip got hit and damaged everything that was attached to it (i.e. the internet modem, blu-ray player, and Samsung TV). Our TV only has a blue screen. Help


Yep, power spikes kill. Power spikes kill all. Power spikes kill all forever. Replace all and get a new surge protector that costs at least $99. If you never need it it is called insurance. I am in FL the capitol of lightning. High priced surge protectors are cheeeeep when lightning is there.

What your describing is symptoms of a power surge, Many LCD Tv's are sensative to Slight fluctuation in power during rain, thunder and lightning storms, i myself was happily watching Tv through such a storm at one time, and when i went to bed the TV would not respond remotely or manually, i also disconnected the power from the wall waited for the ready light to disolve and try to turn on, unfortunatley the damage was done, a Tv Repair was nessecary and since then i now use a belkin power surge protector board for my TV and appliances......one question to you is i would guarantee you do not use a surge protection my friend......and your set will need a Tv Repair, it is not major as what is neccesary is a firmware dump on the internal memory and replace the BIOS Battery as well.

How do i stop lightning from getting in my hdmi lines and shocking my tv? 5 tvs went down in one storm


I would recommend getting a surge protector and using that to protect your televisions. This usually will stop something the lightning from killing your tv's.. I have a surge protector and can still use my tv, computer, anything I have plugged in during a storm.

Hi there!
One of reasons your tv not working, the thunder storm /lighting possibility has burnt your Tv micro processor. get a technician to check the power supply section too because during the thunder storm your TV circuitry received excessive voltage .
If is the main processor is burnt you have to change it for the TV to work .

I have a 47 inch sanyo. model# dp46848. A transformer blew in a lightning storm and now the tv will not power on. The power light will come on for 5-10 seconds and then shut off. The tv was on a surge...


But, was the cable/satellite feed protected? Lightning can come in from anywhere, not just the power line. The bad thing about the way cable and satellite installers ground things is, they ground to the same grounding system that the house does, which can backfeed the surge through the entire house - it shouldn't, but it can.

I would, however, contact the maker of the surge strip and attempt to file a damage claim. They all come with a liability warranty of some sort.

TV WORKED FINE AND AFTER A THUNDER STORM, WONT POWER ON


Sets such as this still have power applied to stand-by circuits whenever it is plugged in. Try unplugging it for 5 min or so and then if normal operation does not return, ask around for a competent repair shop. With lightning or surges it can be either something "simple" to someone experienced (about $50 maybe) or well exceeding replacement cost. A power strip with surge protection is a good idea in the future, unplugging everything is better but not always practical.

After my house was it by lightning my Onkyo


If your receiver was connected to any power source and that power source was not a surge protector strip there may be damage to the receiver as lighting travels. Another thing to consider is the fact that many people will put their equipment on surge protectors but the cable is still connected to the TV etc...This is just another avenue for the lightning to get into the home and blow up your system. I always disconnect any cable from my computer and TV. The power source from the wall is also unplugged when there is a storm just to be sure. Surge protectors are limited in their use as well. I don't believe they can take too many lightning hits. It is best to change them out.

No power on Samsung TV after storm


Hello Zkarim,

I'm very sorry to hear about your unfortunate new's. I had the same problem in my own home maybe a week ago.

Basically if your power flickered on and off at anytime during this storm then there was a power surge that probably fried your TV.
* First check the power where the tv was plugged in. Is it a power strip or a surge protector ? Surge protectors typically have an on/off switch and a separate reset push button.

If it is a power strip then the tv fried because there was nothing to stop it from happening (not even the fuse). If it was plugged into a surge protector then it could be quiet a few years old and not as reliable or the surge was to powerful for the limit on the surge protector.

The only thing you can do personally is send it in for repair if it's under warranty, if it is not then you can have it looked at by an authorized repair technician in your area. Troubleshooting should be fairly low, and you will at least be able to find out your options once they find the defected part.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!
