Question about Emerson EWL20D6 Television

My Emerson EWL20D6 turns itself off after about 6-8 seconds

This TV has never woked properly since being bought. When it is plugged in initially or turned on initially, it just turns itself off with no apparent reason why.

It's the #1 plaguing issue with Emerson flat panel TV.
Normally, when this happens, the TV goes into " Protection Mode " because of a failing circuit board.
The most common thing to go out on flat panel TVs is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can'tactually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptom.

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.

3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.


I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

What cable do I need connect my Emerson EWL20D6 to my laptop?


This TV can't understand a laptop signal directly (for most laptops - there are some computers that have a TV out option). The EWL20D6 has S-video, component and composite video inputs. Your best picture will be to get a VGA (RGB) to Component Video (YPbPr) converter with a 3.5 mm to RCA L/R audio cable. See this page for some idea of the available converters: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html . The VGA to component video cable is meant for projectors that can interpret the RGB signal, not TVs.

If your laptop has an HDMI port, you will need a different type of converter.

Once you have the correct hardware, you will need to make sure that the external video port is active on your laptop. For some machines, you may need to enable this in the BIOS first (press Esc, F1, F2 or F10 (depending on the computer) on bootup to get to the BIOS - it may take a few tries to time it correctly). Then turn off the TV and computer before connecting the cables. Then turn on the TV and set it to the desired input before turning on the laptop. Then set the laptop to send the video signal to the external monitor. (On my Win7 laptop, I right-click on the Desktop and select Graphic Properties. Then set the desired display (laptop screen, external monitor, both) and click Apply. Then press OK when you see the confirmation box on the now active screen.)

The Emerson EWL20D6 was manufactured by Funai for the Emerson line. Thus the manual is available here: http://www.funai-corp.com/support/manuals.aspx . Manuals are listed in alphabetical order. (If you use the search function, leave off the brand name.) The direct link to the manual is: http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/EWL20D6.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Tv shuts off after 6-8 seconds


capacitors in the power supply, they all should be replaced, before it takes out the rest of the ps. there are companies that rebuild them if your tech is not up on repairing them.

Emerson EWL20D6 TV turns on and the picture goes right back off


Mine is doing the same thing. I talked with a local repair guy over the phone and he says that (obviously) something is malfunctioning in the TV and a sensor shuts it off to minimize the damage to other components. This would be ok if the TV were 20 years old (they used to last that long); however, mine is only 1 1/2 years old and Emerson couldn't give a damn that the TV is a piece of ****. Silly Mimi
