Question about Recoton Advent Advent DV1418A 14 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Power light on but nobody's home?

My tv has been working perfectly fine until today. I went to turn it on but I get nothing. The power light will go on and off but the screen never changes from black - not even a flicker nor does it make any noise. I also cannot get the DVD player to open. Any ideas on what's wrong? I'm not that TV saavy so I'm not sure what else you may need to know. The TV is an Advent DV1418A TV/DVD combo. Thanks for your help =) I admit it's an old tv but it's been great.

The power supplies in most all the smaller combo units are prone to failure. They feed both the TV and the VCR and are underdesigned as they try to keep the cost of a combo affordable.
I've never had much success solving them - sorry
They always break that last time!

My philips 42PFP5332D/37 keeps making a clicking sound, it wont turn on, and like most other post i have read, the blue power light stays on, but nothing more..it just keeps clicking, its been doing this...


I had the same problem and it was the power supply board,but I replaced it myself and only spent about $140.00 for the part and 2 day shipping . It was easy just pull the back cover off and there are about 8 small screws that hold it on and like 6 connectors that's it. Also ShopJimmy.com was the place for parts on these T.V.'s.

Westinghouse 29" lcd stopped working all of a sudden. no picture, no sound. nothing.


The inverter provides power for the backlight for the screen, I would have thought you would have sound for a short while if it were that. I would go for power supply capacitors.

Tv won't turn on


I had a similar problem when there was a power outage or the lights went briefly out. I unplugged the TV and left it for a few days/weeks and then plugged it in and the TV worked. I think newer TVs should be treated like a home computer and put them on surge protectors.
