Question about Curtis LCDVD151A 15 in. HDTV LCD TV TV/DVD Combo
The l.e.d light in the bottom right corner stays red then when powered on it will turn green...but then the tv turns it's eslf back off turning the l.e.d red again..
Sounds like "Protection Mode". The TV automatically turns itself OFF when a part inside the TV has failed. This mode keep the other electronic parts from being damaged. Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.
You have a few choices:
1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and 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, schematics, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15 by searchingon the internet with the part number.
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.

Replace capacitors c520 and c126 to get your power working again.
Also make sure that you don't have a broken green 3 inch jumper wire broke that lies under the heat shield in the top right corner. The wire should be glued to the board for stability. It sometimes breaks loose and will cause the TV screen to stay off.
