Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

It was plugged into an expensive power surge protector. With the high winds, it flicked the power off & on 2 times & now it will not work.

It is not a TV. it is a Phillips DVDR3575H. HDD and DVD player/recorder. I did what was recommended and it still will not power up. Is it ruined?

Unplug the surge protector and plug the unit into the wall and see if it works then. It might have blown the surge protector with any luck.

SOURCE: red light blinks 9 times on Panasonic TH-42PZ77U

hello, panasonic plasmas have a safety shut down circut to protect the main panel when a short is present or internal circut panel is non functional some info i found in the service manual for 10th generation plasma
if your tv is still under warantee take advantage of the pany free service other wise it is a matter of exchanging the defective board then you will need electronic skills for this repair if you plan to do it yourself. it would be wise to have a skilled tech check it out and give you a estimate there are some techs that will come out and check it for free and give you a repair price.

here are some repair manual tips for blinking panasonic .. i didnt find 9 blinks on this manual i may be using a different manual but these are panasonic plasma blinking fault tips for 10th gen
becuase all models have different blinking codes you may need the model specific service manual

for 10th gen model some models 2008,2007,

8 Blinks SOS:
Pin 91 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SS board. During normal operation, pin 8 of connector SS23 outputs a low to pin 91. If the SS board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 91. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 8 times.

9 blinks panel config sos

10 Blinks SOS:
The SUB5V and DT9V sources created on the A board are monitored by IC1100. If they are not present at pin 30 and 34, the MPU shuts down the unit. The power LED blinks 10 times.

10 Blinks SOS:
The F_STB_15V of the P board, as well as the derived SUB5V and DT9V sources are monitored on the A board for excessive current. If a short circuit is developed in one of the supplied lines, pin 114 of IC1100 receives a high. The SUB5V and DT9V lines are also monitored for excessive voltage. When an over-voltage condition is detected, a high is also output to pin 114 of IC1100. The DT9V is provided to a DC/DC converter to create the BT30V for the tuner. If the BT30V becomes excessive, a high is output to pin 114 of IC1100. A high at pin 114 of IC1100 causes the unit to shutdown and the power LED to blink 10 times.

hope this helps..

SOURCE: power surge hit my surge protector with my 'sony tv hooked to it.

Well, the power supply may be still damaged by the surge, what may happen is that when first surge happens the surge protector protect your TV by sacrifing itself but then the second surge comes along, since the protector already blown up then the surge will just come right through to the TV on the second surge. That is bad problem for the surge protector that sacrify itself but can only do it for ONE time.

SOURCE: My TV will not power on at all today. It was

it has (2) 8 amp 250 volt ceramic fuses, slow burn, 5mm x 20mm that needs to be replaced. they cost about $1.00 - $3.00 each. Just take off the back cover (make notes of where the 4 different types of screws go!!!) and look just above where the plug goes into the tv. A set of needlenose pliers will easily remove the fuses.

What is the difference between a regular power strip and a surge protector?


A power strip is what's used for plugging in multiple appliances to one outlet. A surge protector is different in that it is designed to prevent electrical surges from too many things plugged in, bad weather or lightening. Usually things like air conditioners with heavy motors are plugged into surge protectors.

Had power surge. Tv was on surge protector. Now no power will come on and just makes a buzzing sound.


Have you tried plugging it in without the surge protector? I would wager that either a) the surge protector needs to be reset/turned on and off depending on the model or b) either your TV and/or surge protector have been damaged by the power surge.

Try plugging the TV straight into the outlet and see if that helps.

Technician a says that a line condition protects a computer system from high-voltage surges and low-level voltages.technician b says that a surge suppressor protects a computer system from high-voltage...


Hi,
Line conditioners and surge protectors both help to prevent voltage in your devices from shooting up and damaging computers, game consoles, or other machines which use a power cable rather than batteries. In everyday use line conditioners can prevent changes from voltage in making the lights or dim or brighten, meaning you can have a consistent supply of 120 volts per second.
Surge protectors on the other hand are smaller and cheaper than line conditioners, these prevent high-voltage from being transmitted to your device, so excessive power doesn't cause your machine to die, or suffer catastrophe. Surge protectors needs to be replaced every few years so in the long run this can make them more expensive than line conditioners.

Please check if your surge protector is working properly now. There is possibility that the surge protector is blown off due to high voltage surge. Check if your surge protector has a reset switch which some of the surge protectors have. If the problem still persists then you have to call the technician to replace the safety fuse which is inside the TV. The cost will not be much. I will personally recommend that you change your TV as it has outlived its life being 10 yrs old.

No power cannot turn on


Suggest you check the simple stuff first.

Not checking is akin to a car that won't start, and tearing apart the entire fuel system, only to find it was just out of gas.

1) Make sure the receptacle the surge protector is plugged into, has power. Surge protector Power On light should be lit.

2) Check THE receptacle in the surge protector, that the computer itself, is plugged into.
Have had a number of expense surge protectors, where just THAT receptacle was bad.

("Hmmm, surge protector Power On LED light is lit. Monitor, printer, sound system, and router plugged into the surge protector has power. Should be good to go.

NOT!
Plug a table lamp, or similar device into THAT receptacle.
Make SURE it has power)

Surge protector, and receptacle in surge protector checks out?
Bypass the Power On switch.

See if the problem is a $5 Power On switch, or the Power Supply.

(Generic ATX Power On switch that I have found fits many computers,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

{The Power On switch, is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly}

This is information about computer Power Supply's,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_power_supply

This is a basic example of an SMPS, (Photo at upper right. You can click on the photo to enlarge), and info about.
(Switched-Mode Power Supply. The main type of power supply used in personal computers),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switched-mode_power_supply

By bypassing the Power On switch, you will be able to determine if the problem is the switch, or Power Supply.

Bypassing the Power On switch turns the Power Supply on?
Bad Power On switch.

Bypassing the Power On switch does Not turn the Power Supply on?
Bad Power Supply.

A jumper wire is used on the 20, or 24-pin ATX main power cable.
The jumper wire goes to the Soft Power On, (PS_ON. Green in color), to ANY Ground wire.
(ALL Black wires are Ground wires)
A MOMENTARY contact is used.

(Example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24 )

In order to guide you in this procedure, I need to know the computer manufacturer name, and Model Number.

On a desktop computer this will be located on the Back of the computer tower, (Next to the Windows product key), or up on the side of the tower.
Some models have it where there is a door you open in the front, and the product number, or model number is located there.

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

We had a near lightning strike and now my tv (sanyo model ht27744)doesn't want to come on.


Lightening may have caused a surge on your power lines to the house and to the outlet the TV was on.
Do other things work on that outlet? If not you tripped a power breaker.If they do work check this.
Unplug the TV for 2 min or more and plug back in.
Try bypassing your surge protector you had it plugged into. It could have died when the lightening struck.
(no surge protector?) Bet you'll buy one for your next TV.
Look for 3000 joules and up rating for a surge protector and insure it has protection for a cable/antenna input too.
If this doesn't work the TV may be fried or internal fuse blown.
Time to take it to a repair shop or depending on it's age (5 years+) it may be time to buy a new TV and surge protector.
Near Lightening strikes can effect appliances from several inputs that could be affected from outside like Power, Cable, Antennas, Phone Lines that come into your house.

HELP! Fire Hazzard!


It sounds like your focus/screen block, the flyback transformer, or maybe a CRT anode lead is leaking high voltage. This could be a serious problem, or could be a simple one. You should not attempt this repair unless you know all of the high voltage safety issues involved with this TV set. Good Luck
