Wont come out of standby

Describe your problem
The red standby light remains constant when the set is in standby mode, but when i try to switch on, the light flashes between orange and red and the set fails to come on. I can hear what sounds like a fan come on for a few seconds and then it switches off. The lamp light does not illuminate although i have had the set some 3 years and never replaced the lamp. Could anyone help please

Re: wont come out of standby

The problem is most likely a defective lamp. See your owners manual on lamp replacement as this can be done by the consumer.

Sony kp41s5u rear projection tv constant blinking standby

Power supply or set is not allowing set fully on as a problem in any of a number of areas in the set. Try unplugging set for a while to see if that helps or have a tech look at it.

When turning on the TV all I get is a click sound, the red light remains red and no picture or sound.

Sounds like the tv is on standby, and needs to be switched on after via the remote control.

When turn on, the red light is on (stop blink), but after some seconds the red light is blinking again and the tv remain off

Im not Guarantee This will Work but give it a go

  • Turn On the unit with the remote controller
  • Wait until "no disc" appears in the unit's display
  • Press Pause, 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9
  • The word "CODE" should appear in the display
  • Within five seconds, press the key that corresponds to the zone you want i.e. 0 for region free, 1 for region 1, 2 for region 2 and so on
  • Again, within 5 seconds, press Pause and Power
If the above fails to work then you may wish to try the following:
  • Put the player into Standby mode
  • Press 1 and Return on remote for region 1, 2 and Return for region 2, and so on. Use 0 and Return to return player to default region settings
  • Press P-Mode and Return to play DVD's with the selected region, auto-switching is Off
  • Press Audio and Return for auto-switching On
  • Press Angle and Return for MacroVision On
  • Press Subtitle and Return for MacroVision Off
hope this helps you out

cheers Little Dish Fitter.

Tv wont turnon afterstandby

LG will sell you a new lamp. It may resolve the problem but just as likely it's the contacts where the lamp unit plugs to the TV. There's a few types of connectors. The early ones are dodgy and cause the problem you describe. A faulty lamp can also cause it though.

Let me know when TV warms up does it go to standby?
If yes, standby light would be blinking, let me know how many times it blinks?
And if TV does not go to standby mode, does picture remain with red tone?

We have a large tube pansonic wide screen tv. it sometimes would stay in standby mode and would not turn on when using the remote or channel switches on the tv.. this is getting worse to the point where...

This fault can be caused by low secondary supply voltages often caused by the value of capacitors becoming low and requiring replacements but you will have to have a technician.
