    EWL20S5C TV stays on for 2 sec and then shuts off.

  • TVTek2279 Aug 20, 2008

    I guess this is a common problem with this model. Is there any solution other than replacing the main module? John

    EMERSON EWL20S5C ; I am having the same problem. TV just started shuting off after 10 to 15 seconds.

  • sherri_vc Jan 12, 2009

    This is Sherri_vc, I called Emerson was told I'll have to take set into service center and pay for repairs myself. After explaining the problem and lettling them know that the part must be defecting because so many of us have this problem. I did'nt get a different response, repairs still on my dollar!

    How does one get a class action law suit started? I will not buy a Emerson again.

  • starrs73 Jan 13, 2009

    the set stays on for about 10 -15 sec. then goes off.Picture is great ,but always powers down.....

  • tracylyons Jan 15, 2009

    I have the same problem with the EWL20S5C. I called Emerson and they told me I would have to pay also. This is crazy!!! My set lasted 13 months. Any help out there?

  • ssasinurse Jan 17, 2009

    I have the same problem with this tv. It only lasted a year and now it does the same exact thing. Keep me posted if anyone finds out that Emerson will back their product. I will call them myself ASAP as now I am aggravated since there are so many people with the same issue. This is ridiculous!

    Seems as if this is a major problem with the emerson tv's, Will never buy another one. Turns off after 5-10 second, and conveinently right after the warranty expires. I believe that there is a built in timer self-destruct button, hoping people will rush out and buy another one.

  • joenap1956 Feb 15, 2009

    I have th same problem. TIme to let Emerson know that they need a recall of I will make sure not to buy and spread the word.

  • ljcjld29 Feb 23, 2009

    I have the same problem turn it on and stay on for about 10 to 15 seconds. Does anyone know how to fix it or do I need to buy a new TV (not an EMERSON)?

  • FireJack Feb 25, 2009

    Emerson, you have a quality control problem. I have the same shutoff after about 5 to 10 secs. Mine has Raster, Video and Audio. Then bam, nothing. I would believe that the low voltage which supplies every other section would be the first place to check. Maybe a relay? Or maybe the higher voltage raster area drawing too much current is the culprit. Years ago I saw line circuit breakers pop as things heated up with current draw increasing. But that was in tube days. I haven't touched a tv in years. But the basic sections haven't changed to produce television. I also worked for better part of 10 years in quality control of a major computer company. Emerson, I do recognize a failure trend. Make it right for your customers!

  • jlewis628 May 01, 2009

    I have the exact same problem! We've had the TV for a while and it's been a great TV, but then when I went to turn it on earlier, it on stay on for about 10-30 seconds, then it shut off, and I can't get it to turn back on at all now! I've unplugged, pressed the power button, nothing works! If this many people is having the same problem, then I'm just gonna end up getting a new TV by the sounds of it! Man this sucks.

To be sure if the inverter is good , disconect the main board from the inverter but leave the inverter connected to the screen. You need a 19v and 3.3v power adapter. The 19v is to apply voltage to the inverters and the 3.3 to switch the power. I have tested mine this way and is working fine, my problem is the main board.

Try removing the LVDS cable that goes to the Tcon board and see if the set stays on, you won't have picture but does the sound stay on...if it does then replace the Tcon board, the only one you haven't replaced it sounds like
