TV won't turn off

My TV will turn off when I use the remote, but it will turn right back on. The power button on the TV does not work. The only way to shut off the TV is to unplug it.

Re: TV won't turn off

Or ironically the power switch on the TV could be stuck and causing a false on/off command. Don't let the simple things such as that be overlooked.

SOURCE: TV auto shut off-power indicator light blinking-won't turn back on

You can also try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works..

If you are having some problems with your Sony Television, then this post is for you. Generally speaking, when there is trouble with your Sony Television set -- it indicates the issue in either the diagnostic mode, or even more commonly by flashing a series of LED blinks or flashes on the front of your television. Each set or frequency of the blinks indicates a very specific problem with the television itself. In some cases, you may be able to repair the television set yourself -- or in the worst case you may need to order parts, call a local repair shop to the have a repairman sent out, or even purchase a new television set.

First off, here are the list of codes and what they generally mean on my set (which applies to many recent model Sony Television sets. Sony has provided a "self-diagnosis function" with your TV, that in the case of abnormalities or problems the LED or red blinking light on the Timer/Standby indicator flashes a number of times to indicate the issue. Here are the values of the various blinks.

* 0 times, Diagnosis: Power does not turn on. Possible causes include: Power cord is not plugged in, Fuse is burned out (F6001) (G board). Symptoms of the problem: Power does not come on, No power is supplied to the unit, AC power supply is faulty.
* 2 times, Diagnosis: B overcurrent (OCP). Possible causes: H. OUT (Q8024) is shorted. (D board), +B PWM (Q8035, 8038) is shorted. (D board) Symptoms of the problem: Power does not come on, Load on power line is shorted.
* 3 times, Diagnosis: +B overvoltage (OVP). Possible causes: IC501 is faulty (G board), IC5002 is faulty (G board). Symptoms of the problem: TV has entered standby mode.
* 4 times, Diagnosis: Vertical deflection stopped. Possible causes: +- 15V is not supplied. (D board), IC8003 is faulty. (A board) Symptoms of the problem: TV has entered standby state after horizontal raster, Vertical deflection pulse is stopped, Power line is shorted or power supply is stopped.
* 5 times, Diagnosis: White balance failure (Not balanced) Possible causes: Video out (IC7101, 7201, 7301) is faulty (CR, CG, CB board), CRT drive (IC309) is faulty (A board), G2 is improperly adjusted. Symptoms of the problem: No raster is generated, CRT cathode current detection reference pulse output is small.
* 6 times, Diagnosis: LOW B OCP/OVP (Overcurrent/over voltage). Possible causes: +5 line is overloaded. (A, B boards), +5 line is shorted. (A, B boards). Symptoms of the problem: No picture.
* 7 times, Diagnosis: Horizontal deflection stopped. Possible cause: Q8035, 8038 is shorted. (D board)
* 8 times, Diagnosis: High voltage error. Possible cause: T8005 is faulty. (D board)
* 9 times, Diagnosis: Audio error. Possible causes: +- 19V line is shorted. (A, B boards), IC708 is faulty. (A board), PS701 or PS702 is opened. (A board). Symptoms of the problem: No sound

If you would like to attempt a DIY, you will need a service manual to guide you. You can find one here:

However, be aware that there are voltages inside your TV set that can kill, even if unplugged.

The Vizio TV won't turn on all of a sudden

Are you trying with the remote and the power button on the tv? The batteries might be dead in your remote if you haven't tried the power button on the TV.

Power button only one that won't turn power on

Have the remote tested either with a tester that most shops have or in a dark room with a digital camera the display will faintly flash when remote pointed at it and buttons pressed.

Also if button does not work (power) unplug the set for a while to see if it will reset. If the tester shows same problem--no working for power or have to press ******* buttons 99% chance something got spilled onto remote and got inside

My tv is not working right with picture.

Press the TV button on the remote, make sure the TV is plugged in, check the electrical outlet to make sure it is live if the TV does not turn on. If these actions do not solve the problem, press the Power button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, replace the batteries in the remote control and reset it by pressing the number 1 button for 60 seconds. If necessary, reprogram the remote.

Unplug the TV for two minutes, then plug it back in if the buttons on the remote don't work. Make sure the remote is in TV mode.

Change the settings on the sleep timer if the TV turns off unexpectedly. Unplug the TV and wait five minutes before plugging it back in if necessary.

Check your antenna connections and cables if the sound is okay but the picture is poor. If all the connections are good, adjust the sharpness function.

Try this...1) turn on your tv set manually.2) on you dish and hold the "TV" mode button next to the "SAT" button.when all of the other mode buttons light up, let the "TV" button should be flashing.3) Press the blank power button(The top red button in the top center of the remote).4) press the UP or DOWN button at the rate of about 1 per second until the tv turns off.4) When the tv turns the # key on the bottom right of the remote...this stores the code and you should be ready to go...please try this first..It should work.If the scan doesn't work...The only code for Orion is "694".I hope this was helpful....

Remote code

Hi trckynky,

I am unable to find the Duraband tv, however many times you can search fo one that will work.

Try this.
  1. Turn on TV
  2. Press and hold the TV button on the remote
  3. While holding the TV button also press and hold the power button.
  4. The light on the remote should go out and then a second later come back on.
  5. Release both buttons, the light should remain on.
  6. Aim the remote at TV and press the power button about every 5 seconds until TV turns off.
  7. Press the STOP button at bottom of remote., this will lock in the code.
  8. Use the remote to turn TV back on and test all buttons on remote to insure you have the correct code.
If the remote will work with Durabrand this is the way to find it, unfortunately the remote may not work for all TV's.

Let me know if I can assist further.

Please rate this solution.

My sharp tv wont turn on

I don't know if you have this problem but I had a similar problem aswell. My TV remote and my universal remote wouldn't turn on or perform any of the funtions as they should. This is what I did to fix it: 1. unplug the TV from the power outlet. 2. take the batteries out of your TV remote. 3. press the power button on the TV remote, and then press every other single button one by one from left to right (as if you were reading a book). 4. plug the power cord back in the power outlet. 5. replace the batteries in your TV remote. 6. try turning on the TV using the factory remote.
These steps, as weird as they sound, worked just fine for me. My TV is now responding to my remote and my cable remote is able to control the TV again. No, I did not loose the universal (cable) remote's TV codes. FYI. the steps mentioned above were performed using the TV native remote (factory remote). Hope this will work out for you as well. And if you are wondering how I knew this would work, well I saw the same steps on another website (sorry I can't remember which website it was) and decided to give it a try before I took the TV back to BestBuy for warranty repair...which would have taken like two weeks.

Sony TV power and volume not working

Since remote does not work, try taking out batt and turning on by set. See if still turns up. It could be that the up button is jammed inside set. Does everything else works? See if you can go to menu and turn speakers off, this will allow you to work on set and not worry about noise.
