Question about Vizio L30WGU 30 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I cannot turn my panasonic DVD player on - recently hooked up to a new Vizio flat panel television
Try first using the buttons on the unit to turn on the DVD, so to exclude the possibility of a faulty remote.
If the DVD player does not start at all, and there is not even the led light coming on, then the DVD power supply unit is faulty, in that case call Panasonic.
If instead the DVD stays in standby, with led light on, but does not start, then the DVD player is in protect mode.
Protect mode is a diagnostic mode that kicks in when a wrong voltage is detected. It can be caused by an internal fault or an external event like a power surge. The protection circuit will start, preventing the unit from turning on and keeping it in stand by.
If the problem is external, like a power surge, or a short on one of the connected cables, for example, the problem is fixed simply leaving the power cord disconnected for about thirty minutes.
Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same protect mode because of the video cable.
If the DVD is still going in standby after disconnecting, and there is no cable connected, then the unit has an internal fault.
In that case, if under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.
Try first disconnecting and unplugging video cables.
