TV has no power

Someone would have to check for short starting in Horizontal output circuit at the output transistor--voltage checks will also narrow down where likely problem is at.

If power light does not come on usually trouble is at fuse or very near it.

I am not sure but maybe purchase a DVD cleaner kit for the player around $10. USD, and make sure the DVD itself is clean and without scratches. Also, try dvd player on another tv to see if it is OK. Other than that input settings. I do not know of any inherent design problems in the unit. Have you tired their web site?

Bush lcd tv turned itself off won't come back on

My Olevia LCD TV did the same thing. I turned off the back power switch and pulled the power cord as well. Left off for a couple of minutes and then re-connected cord and turned on main switch. I then turned on the front power switch and it come on just fine. These new sets have computer-like guts so you have to re-boot them sometimes. I hope this works for you.

Same problem here. TV would turn off but would not turn on after a period of time (until waiting a minute or two) then able to start again. Intermittent problem too.

What do I do when my Emerson TV keeps turning off by itself?

I had the same problem with mine turning off after 3-5 seconds. After much research I found a suggestion that on some combo units the vcr part could have a power supply cutout if it is not working correctly. I tried to insert a tape and found that the tape mechanism would not accept a tape. I used a little bit of force and managed to insert a tape. I then played the tape forwards and backwards and the power stayed on! I ejected the tape and found the TV then worked just fine. The power has now been on for over one hour. I hope this give you another avenue to try and fix your problem.

My Tv is turning off by itself

if all you want to do is disable the vcr portion turn the set on , install a blank vhs tape it has to be blank or the vcr will try to read it .and the tv and dvd should work fine. this is a timing problem in the vcr deck its not hard to fix but it is a pain.
