Re: My TV wont turn on i tried unplugging it and dusting...

The tv may have had a break down in the power supply, or may have "bad" solder connections on the main circuit board. GE tv's were famous for this. If you know someone who can solder electronics and knows how to look for bad solder joints, this may be the fix to your problem. If you have to take it in to get it repaired, it may not be worth it, as the prices of TV's now are very very cheap.

Sharp CRT TV from 2007. Won't turn on, makes hissing sound when plugged in.

Dampness in the power transformer will cause this, keep it somewhere warm and with good airflow for a while, to dry for a couple of days, before you take the back off and gently brush the dust off using a vacuum cleaner to carefully clean it out, MAKE SURE TV IS UNPLUGGED THEN TURN THE POWER SWITCH ON TO DRAIN ALL REMAINING POWER OUT. dust & dampness are the usual reasons.

LG 50" plasma will turn on then shut off shortly there after.

Unplug the power from the power outlet and let it sit for a few minutes. Then plug it back and it should work normally.

Wont come on

Instead of just unplugging the TV, perform a power drain:
1. Unplug the product's power cable so the device is not grounded to the house. 2. Press and HOLD the product's own power button for 1 minute to drain the capacitors. 3. Plug the product back into a wall outlet and try to turn it on.
Note: This procedure works with battery operated devices as well so remove the batteries and hold down it's power button.  Electricity can remain in capacitors and on circuit boards enough to prevent normal functionality. By clearing the residue electricity, your product will have a fresh start and many times this will resolve a buggy or non-responsive device that appears to be dead.
If the TV still won't turn on, then it appears something is wrong with it's mainboard since the TV is still receiving power because the standby light is still coming on.  The cost of fixing an older TV's mainboard could be costly or impossible if the part is discontinued.

It depends on what type of TV set you have, what model and make.

Audio not working on proscan ps61700

I have a GE 46 in TV that had the same occurrence. I believe it is a sign that the amplifier is overheated or stressed. The way I fixed mine was to unplug TV and leave off for a few minutes -then plug in. I discovered this by accident when the power went off one day and the sound returned (had been using my vcr audio output plugged into my stereo for weeks!) This fix will work for weeks-sometimes months-evidently resets the circuits inside the amp somehow. Last time this happened I also removed the back of TV and blew out the dust with compressed air while it was unplugged-still have sound 4 months later without a "reset"-so I'm guessing it did help .
