If tv not powering on, then probly power capacitor is bad. Open tv to reveal inside. There is a cluster of small capacitors look like tiny cans) that feed/store power to turn on tv. If capacitors are bulging on tops then they are bad. Simple to replace by soldering. Can purchase online or radio shack.

Just got the tv out of the box, and can not get it to power on. If I unplug and wait 60 seconds I hear a click in the tv and am unable to turn it on. Is the tv bad or is there something else I can do?

Make sure the cord is plugged in tightly at the TV and at the wall.

Try turning it on from the power switch on the TV (not the remote - batteries in remote may be missing or bad (if they came with the set).

Some TV screens appear dark / off if there is no signal so make sure the cable or antenna is plugged in (or dvd if that is all you will use).

Try clicking through the different input sources (Should be a SOURCE or INPUT button on side of set. Use remote with good batteries if you don' t have a button on the set.

If those options fail, put it back in the box and return it - the set it bad. Sorry.

My remote control is a model CT-90233. Several of

your remote is old and needs to be cleaned and rebuttoned(you can do this yourself) open up the battery panel and look for small screws to take of the case. you need to dust it out with compressed air. and reline the buttons. when you push down on the power button it probbaly is not making complete contact with the button, take a small thing and poke the power button without the buttons on. see if that works. if it turns on right away with direct pressure to the power switch then you just need to make sure your buttons are making complete contact. if that dont work then your circuit is screwed. you need a new remote or a new tv.

Direct tv remote batteries fail constantly

I have same problem with Dish TV.........I was told the 'fix' was to press satellite button, on the remote, after turning off the telly. There is no permanent resolution - Problem occurs as remote is always communicating with the box when it's in TV mode (which happens after you power off the tv).

Remote won't turn tv off or on. Mute, volume also does not work

Take the set apart and see if there is a separate board in front of the set. Remove the board and check for cold solder joints first. If o.k., replace sensor. Then again you could contact toshiba and order another key pad for the set.

My Polaroid remote control won't work.

First we need to know if the remote is working. Heres the "secret" way to check a remote. Use a cell phone w/camera.

  • Set the cell phone to camera
  • while watching the camera screen and a known good remote, aim the remote at the lens and press a button (volume works well) on the remote (not a device button ie; sat,tv,vcr,etc). You should see lights turn on/flash. Now you know your camera can detect IR light.
  • Do the same again with the remote in question. If there is no IR light output, the remote is the problem. replace the batteries, ensure good battery contact, retest the remote.
If the remote is working then the problem is in the unit.

Let me know what you find.

Neat trick, huh? Please take the time to rate this.

TV Zoom mode

Change the batteries on the remote, point the remote at the Sony, and hold in the power button for 5-7 seconds. Then depress and re-press the power button - see if you can get the tv remote to respond again.

Then, always try the quick reset:
How to perform a power reset on a Sony® television.
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: 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 television.
