Re: power failer when switching on tv

A fuse blows when there is a fault and it is the first line of protection for the equipment. The fuse used in a typical plug is rated at 4A/220V. This means that a indeed fault does exist inside the equipment that is forcing it to draw a current greater than the rated. Almost certainly, the primary circuit of your Goodmans is at fault. If you are familiar with TV repair then check the bridge rectifier as well as the reservoir capacitor, with the switching semiconductor (BJT or MOSFET or IC) removed. If the fuse blows then the rectifier/capacitor are to blame. If not, then the semiconductor is at fault. If you are a novice, then rather refer servicing to a qualified tech since the risks outweigh the benefits.

I have a Sanyo CE32WP5B television and nothing happens when I switch on the set, would this just mean the fuse near the on/off switch has blown?

That sounds like you have a power supply fault.
If the mains fuse has blown on the chassis, check the Switch Mode Chopper Transistor and dry joints around the transformers.
Be careful replacing the chassis in the case as the join gives problems!
Hope this helps.

Rca f36650yx01 will not turn on

I feel foolish asking this but have you plugged it in? If you have it plugged in are you trying to turn it on with the remote? Have you tried to turn it on by pressing the on switch on the tv? Does the outlet work?

There could be any number of reasons for this. If the outlet has power (you can check this with any electrical device you have, plug it in and turn it on). So if the outlet has power AND the remote has fresh batteries AND the tv is plugged in to the outlet but still will not turn on even after pressing the switch on the tv...then you may have a blown fuse on the power input line into the tv. Take the tv to your local repair shop and ask them to look, if the fuse is blown they'll replace it and voila, your tv is fixed!

Please do not try to do this yourself, there is over 10,000 volts available at the flyback transformer even with the tv not plugged in.

Goodmans crt tv dead

there is another supply missing from your power supply, chec your components on that power supply a ht of 90volts is missing,
check all active components like transistors,diodes and resistors with very small values,
if you go through you are going to win that problem, ok.

Dush TV 28" RF6683VPL switch off while I was waching tv

Hi there sorry but this could any number of things. But i dont think you could repair it your self. It would need to go to a repair shop. It is most likly a power supply fault inside the tv . All the best Bob

Try these simple trick to find out yor remote control working or not....
Point the remote control towards the Camera of a Mobile Camera phone,with the camera on. While pressing remote, we can see a light (Infra Red) coming from its IR LED through the Mobile Camera if the Remote is working.
If the problem with the component that mentioned by you, write down the Number written on that and replace it with the same by the help of a Soldering Iron.
Also see the writing near to it for finding out what the component is.... For eg. C=Capacitor, R=Resistor, TR or Q=Transistor, IC=Chip, D=Diode etc.

Goodmans 1430R TV (bought 10 years ago) switched off in middle of program by itself and no longer works.

Oh come on man the sets tired!!!LOL no really you got plenty of use out of this bugger. Your problem sounds like something opened in the power supply and since the sets all solid state theres no user serviceable parts inside them. If you really wanted to put cash into a 10 year old set for an estimate/? i would not . But if you like the set go for it. Good luck
