Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV turns itself off

In the middle of watching the television, it turned itself off, would not turn back on with either the remote or from the actual tv. I unplugged and tried other outlets, as well as checked the power surge protector. The TV will "click" and the picture will come back on once it is unplugged and plugged back in, but only for a few seconds.

Sounds like you need a new power supply board

Have a proscan ps50700 that wont show the picture, will turn on but turns itself right back off. what could it be

TV Doesn't Turn On
  • Your RCA rear projection TV may not turn on from time to time for several reasons. First, check that the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet. Check that the outlet is receiving electricity by plugging a different device into the outlet. If the other device doesn't work, you may need to replace a fuse or reset a circuit breaker in your home.

    If you tried using the remote control to turn on the TV, press the "Power" button on the front of the TV. You may have a problem with the remote control if the TV turns on.

    If you tried using the front control panels and haven't tried the remote, press the "Power" button on the remote control. The television controls are blocked if the TV turns on with the remote. To unlock the controls, open the "Parental Control" menu and remove the check mark next to "Front Panel Block."

    Finally, your TV may be performing a diagnostic check. These checks are used to find any errors in your TV. Wait a few minutes before trying to turn on the TV again.

TV Turns Off By Itself
  • You may find that your RCA TV turns off by itself on occasion. This is often because the "Sleep Timer" feature was enabled. This feature allows you to place a timer on the television that will turn it off after a specific amount of time has passed. The feature allows you to save on your energy bill and extend the life of your television.

    If the "Sleep Timer" wasn't set, the television may have detected a power surge in your home and shut off automatically to protect the components of the television. Wait at least 30 seconds before turning the TV on again.

    Finally, if you suspect the television is turning off for a reason other than a power surge, unplug the television and let it sit for at least 10 minutes. This will clear any errors in the television. After 10 minutes, plug the television back into the outlet and resume normal use.

  • Blank Screen
  • A blank screen on an RCA rear projection television is usually caused by a loose connection or an incorrect setting. Check that the coaxial connection on the back of the television is secure or, if you're using an external device such as a DVD player, the video cables are secure. Press the "Ant/Cable" button to switch between tuners if you are watching television, or the "Input" button to switch between input channels if you're watching something from an external device.

My Proscan PS50700 turned on by itself in the middle of the night and began cycling through the channels. Luckily, I happened to see the light from the TV and got up and turned it off. When I've tried...

Well, that's the front panel button.Try pushing each button until you know which one is the cause.Actually,you need to find someone to replace this button, because to replace this button,you need to open the TV case, that's why you need an expert to do this.

Hope it works!!!!

Tv turns on by itself

Hey Bubba,
If your TV is turning on by itself at about the same time each day you may have a timer activated, turn it it off, the TV's micro might need too be reset. To reset unplug your TV from the a/c outlet for at least 5 minutes.
