Question about Televison & Video

It is an Audiovox 20in. flat screen plasma that is approx. 2 yrs. old, and is silvertone in color. It suddenly stopped powering up ie,. as in we can't turn it on. However, the power cord is putting out the correct amount of voltage. I have a few numbers as far as id goes, but i don't know what is what. We can't find a tv repair place that takes this brand. thank you. patty reeves

    that's it? you don't have any suggestions on what it could be? i'm pretty sure i could have figured out that i may have to send it to the manufacture for repair. i really don't want to do this. please try again. thank you. patty reeves

    there isn't a blinking light, and we didn't check for a fuse because we didn't know where to look. my husband is very tech savy and probably can determine if it is a fuse, but he needs to know how to get to the board. he has been technician with at&t for over 40 years, and i am surprised he didn't know where to to go with this. i just spoke with him, and he just needs to know how to get to the board, and then i will get back with you. the only reason i didn't tell you more is because this is all we know, that it won't turn on and he checked he could think to check. thanks for your help, and hopefully the fuse will be the problem. if it is the problem, will it be an ordinary kind of fuse we can purchase anywhere or will we need to special order it. thanks, patty reeves

    Ok benjamin! sounds good. i'll tell him when he gets home in a few minutes. here is all the information i have on this tv. you may have to match the numbers up where they go, as some of them didn't really have any label. model #: didn't see one. serial #: FPE2005. rating #: 12vdc5a. bar code #: 06920000813639760. then there was another number, E234592, off by itself. then of course, the description, Audiovox 20in LCD. i hope this helps if we need to contact you again. sorry for the negative attitude at first, but we have really been frustrated with this, what i would like to say "piece of junk" as a present for 40 years of hard work. however, if it comes down to it, we will send it back to the manufacturerer although i'm sure the warranty is up. also, our zip code is 46112 if we need somewhere to take it rather than send it back. thanks for your time, and hopefully this will take care of the problem. if it ends up being something mundane as the fuse, my husband will really be upset with himself. thanks again. patty reeves

    dear benjamin, my husband has the back panel off and says he doesn't see anything that can be replaced. did any of the numbers i gave work for a possible image? thanks patty reeves

    We have a 20in Plasma Flat Screen TV that is an Audiovox. I have been communicating with one of your staff members, but not to much avail. The tv will not turn on. He suggested it might be a fuse of which my husband has removed the back but there is no indication which board or which fuse to look for. The only numbers I have are the following: model: none. Serial:FPE2005. Bar Code: 06920000813639760. There was another number to itself that wasE234592. Do we need special tools to check the fuse. Our zip code is 46112. I have been trying to reach a Benjamin for further service but he has not replied. I appreciate any help you can provide. thanks, Patty Reeves

If you give me your zip code I can find you the closest options to take it, otherwise you can go through Audiovox themselves and send it to them to repair.

    Many times the YSUS board has problems on these tvs, I assumed since you were looking for a shop, that you wouldn't be trying to repair it yourself so I didn't give you any more info especially since the only symptom that you gave me is that it wouldn't turn on. Usually a light blinking in front will help determine what it wrong but you only told me it wouldn't turn on which could be multiple things. Sometimes just a fuse on this board is blown so have a look at it and let me know what you find.

    Once you remove the back panel of the tv, you should have access to all of the boards. If I had a model number, I could try and find an image of the board in question. Depending on which fuse it is, it probably can be gotten through an electronics store locally like Radio Shack.

    FPE2005 is the model number so that one helps a lot. Unfortunately though, besides getting a new power supply, there are not really any readily available parts for this model and so unless your husband would find a blown fuse or stumble onto the exact problem and it being a common part, this tv is not fixable by him and so sending it to Audiovox themselves would be really the only option as they are the only ones with the specific parts which is why I can now see why no one wanted to fix it for you. I'm sorry to tell you this, but I suggest calling Audiovox, getting a price quote on what they initially charge (hopefully it is still in warranty as you suggested it may be), and then decide whether it is worth keeping or if it is time for a new tv which may be your best option. Plasmas are a newer technology and aren't as reliable as LCD tvs and so if you went with a new tv, I would recommend an LCD over plasma. I hope this helps.

Blinking of the power button denotes an internal circuit fault. If you wish to get more about the blinking codes to Samsung TVs, check this link. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

My plasma is about 2 yrs. old and the power ligt flashs 11 times then it stops and starts flashing again. what can i do?


check the power supply of the plasma, it is located on where the main plug is mounted, check for busted fuse, shorted transistor or diodes the light flashes because of a shorted circuit is in the main board of the plasma or maybe a loose connection try to re-solder the PCB of the plasma TV.

I have power, but no sound or picture


djchillsync is correct - the power supply on these are really poorly engineered and made. Audiovox is trying very hard to ruin thier reputation by putting ou **** like these sets. Contact them for warranty repairs, you may not get them paid for but you'll be directed to someone that knows what they are doing.

Audio but no video


If the screen is not illuminated this can be from the screen power supply, the main screen driver board, or the screen itself has failed. The service rep will change boards to service this, and adjust as necessary.

The set will require factory level service.
