Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a TCL TV and it has already been set up initially 2 years ago however has not been in use for months. Now when I have plugged in the power cord and antenna it says I need to scan channels and I can't find how to do that. I have tried to manually add channels but it finds no channels. I have tried changing inputs but nothing is working so far.

    Thanks for the suggestion... I did try that but figured it out. The antenna was plugged into the wrong connection. My housemate plugged it into a foxtel wall socket :/.

SOURCE: I cannot get a signal on my Phillips 50

if you haven't unplugged the unit for 30 seconds, try that. otherwise, if that doesn't help, probably a board needs to be replaced. call phillips for service.

SOURCE: I have a Westinghouse 26 inch TV.

I carried my Westinghouse TV to the basement. Unplugged the antenna from the digital converter box and connected it to my digital TV. I then re-scanned for channels and found channel 9. After carrying the Westinghouse TV back upstairs, I connected the original set-up and tuned to channel 9 which was now showing on the screen as no signal. From that point I moved my VHF dipoles until I had located the correct position for reception. A little labor intensive, but I was fortunate to have another antenna that was receiving channel 9.

My 39 inch tcl led TV power cord got abrubtly unplugged while watching TV. Plugged it back in and now the TCL logo on the start up screen stays there frozen. Many times already tried to unplug it, wai


Unplug the tv and hold the on/off switch on the tv (not remote) for 30 seconds. This should clear any power left in your electronic boards. Then plug it back in and try again.

Re: tv kdl-55ex620 red light blink 8 times Do a Power Reset. 1. While the TV is off, unplug the power cord of the TV from the electrical outlet. 2. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds. 3. 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.) 4. Turn on the TV. 5. When the TV powers on and a picture is displayed, reset the TV to factory default settings.
  • If the Reset message does not appear and the TV turns off and on, begin again from step 5.
  • If the standby light begins blinking eight times, return to step 1.
6. After the Reset message appears, allow the TV to reset. Do not press any buttons on the remote control or on the TV and do not make any other adjustments for 1 minute. 7. Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet. 8. Allow the TV to remain without power for 10 seconds. 9. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. 10. Turn on the TV.
  • The initial setup screen displays if the above procedures were performed correctly.
11. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the initial set up. 12. Perform a system software (firmware) update.

My LG 42LV4400 has a red light in the bottom left corner but it will not turn on.


hello!
2 month and already quit? OK: first thing to do is to unplug TV off the power strip or wall outlet. Wait for a few minutes and plug the set back into the power source. Try to turn on the set manually, by touching sensors or buttons on control panel. some TVs have push buttons, some touch sensors. If your TV was set to "auto power on" mode, then don't touch anything after plugging set in. That's the only action you can do to "revive" the set. If you will be able to turn set on manually and "free standing" without any external connections, except power cord, check your remote control unit. 95% of consumers turn on their sets via "clickers". In case of complete failure, you might have month or 10 month left of factory warranty, depend on price you paid. Use it a.s.a.p! If needed. There is no magic button to heal broken circuitry.
Good luck,
Alex.

last month i had same problem and i contacted customer care and i got this solution. And this works.

Step 1:

Perform a partial reset.

A partial reset returns the user settings to the factory defaults. The language and country/region settings may also be deleted.

Please perform the partial reset using the following steps:

a. Unplug the power cord from the all-in-one.

b. Press and hold the "#" and 3 button on the front panel keypad.

c. While still holding the buttons down, plug the power cord back in. Release the buttons after the all-in-one begins to initialize.



If the issue persists, follow Step 2.

Step 2:

Perform a semi-full reset.

a. Unplug the power cord from the all-in-one.

b. Press and hold the "#" and 6 button on the front panel keypad.

c. While still holding the buttons down, plug the power cord back in. Release the buttons after the all-in-one begins to initialize.

on the back of the TV where the power cord plugs into the back of the tv there is a small black on/off switch- it's not as obvious as you would think.... but that was turned off. Not sure how that happened since the back of the Tv was never touched when it went dead- but I unplugged the cord from the back of the tv and from the outlet and reset that switch and it worked.
