Power on problems

My television has started requiring me to press the power button twice to turn it on. After the first press I hear clicking and noises from the set but it does not turn on and the red indicator light blinks. After waiting for the noises to stop I press the power swith again and the set turns on. This occurs whether I use the remote or power switch on the television.

A few months ago I had a similar problem where the set would not turn on at all. Service was called (1 week before my 2 year warranty expired) and they replaced many boards and finally determined that the "D" board needed replacement. It worked fine for many months after this repair.

Re: Power on problems

Having to press the power button multiple times before the set comes on is usually caused by low standby voltages in the power supply or bad connections on the printed circuit board. The "D" board is not your problem. Most likely there is bad capacitor in the 9 volt standby supply.

TV Rarely Starts

Check all the solder terminal at its main power regulator section circuit. Any loose solder terminal can poise this type of problem. Resolder all the suspected solder terminals by applying a little more solder. If you wish to get more details, check this site.

Their is no power, but you can only hear a blinking sound.

If by blinking you mean *clicking* (as in multiple times after you press the power button once) then you might have a problem with your power source. More potentially dangerous is an unstable bulb in which case the tv will keep itself from turning on as a fail-safe. (federal regulations for safety)

I pressed the power button, but the tv wont turn on

Please check if the power cord is connected properly in the wall outlet and in the TV. Check the wall outlet. Has it got power? Check if there is red light when the power is switched on at the wall outlet. If there is red light then press the power button. Does the TV turn on? If not then your power button is defective and requires replacement as it is not making contact. Also please try to start your TV WITH THE REMOTE CONTROL. At times it helps.

I have an RCA television. After watching it on Friday, and turning it off. When I went to turn it on Saturday I had no sound or picture. The on/off button lights up when pressed. You can hear the TV click...

If tv is a few years old could be power supply capacitors faulty, sometimes the tv could come on after a while , had this problem on friends tv, Only cure would be replace capacitors, not a job for novice though.

How to tune universal remote rm-300f+ to my tv

How to do an auto search for a Livewire Rm-300f+ Universal Tv Remote. These cheap (£1.00) remotes are available from poundland, etc.

1) Turn on your TV, ensure it it tuned to a channel and the sound is on.
2) Press the [set] button for about 5 seconds, until the LED stays on.
3) Press the MUTE button, the LED should flash twice.
4) Point towards the TV and press the power button. Don't worry if nothing happens.
5) Press and release the power button every second or so, eventually (for me about 120 times) the sound will go off. NOW press the [set] button to confirm your setting.
6) Pressing the power button again should switch the TV off. If not you're going to need to go through it all again.

Philips activation code for a remote control

If none of the codes work then we have two other solutions:

1. Searching For Your Code

If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or yourbrand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, trythe following procedure to search for your code.
If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when youreach the end of all the codes for this device type.
  1. PRESS the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), then RELEASE.
  2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
  3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
  4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
    Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
  5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.

2. Learn the buttons from the original

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing thefollowing steps.
  1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
  2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
  3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function. The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
  4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash rapidly.
  5. PRESS the button on the original remote to be learned.

Now you can repeat steps 3 through 5 to learn other functions onto other keysor press and hold SETUP until the Cinema's red light flashes twice to lock inyour new feature. (If the red light does not blink twice, stop and repeat stepsthrough 6).
To test the new feature, press and release the device key in which the newfeature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions,please feel free to post them here.
Television Video - DVD Audio Satellite Set Top Box Video - VCR Brand: Model (optional): clip_image001.gifclip_image001.gifWe could not find an exact match, we think this code will work. 10054 clip_image001.gifclip_image001.gifSetup Instructions
· Set the "Mode Switch" to TV.
· Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button until the visible LED blinks twice.
· Enter the 5 digit Code above.
· Try your new code and tell us how it worked!
You'll have to settle for that, use the middle power key in the tv device to power on & off the tv.

hope this may help;

there is a little 100mic 25 volt capacitor in the power supply, it is the start up capacitor. Most likely is your problem.
