Re: switching on problem Goodmans tvc201t

We had the same television and when it came on after a power cut it just did this clicking thing. We rang up but we were told it would be too expensive to fix. It got chucked.

However, coincidentally, we happened to be given another television of the same model by someone who was moving abroad. The same thing happened when it was unplugged from the mains while on stand-by. Having seen the half-solution above, I tried pressing the on button on the remote but it just kept clicking away. I tried various buttons, including ones on the television itself. Eventually after much button pressing, it made the initial noise like it was about to fire up but then went back into clicking mode. But by keeping on pressing buttons, it seemed to make more and more of an effort to turn on, which eventually it did.

As it happens, the final button pressed was on the remote control, but I think any button will do. So don't give up if your remote doesn't work. Just keep pressing buttons, and it might just gradually build up a head of steam until it turns on. This could take a good few minutes. I've no idea what might have actually happened. Someone posted the same problem elsewhere on the internet and someone suggested it might be something to do with the capacitor.

The TV will not turn on anymore. I used to have a difficult time turning it off by pressing the on/off button, and then it stopped turning on altogther. Trust me, I have checked the plugs, tried different...

it sounds like the power switch has gone out it you might be able to remove the actual button itself and try pushing the switch with a rubber handled screwdriver

Bush 32 inch Tv is stuck on standby and 2 year old has broken the remote control. The tv is set up for child lock so pressing the buttons manually is not helping. Have just purchased a universal remote...

If you unplug the power cord, let it sit for a minute and plug it back in, it should let you turn the tv on by the button at least once. Then you can at least get the remote linked up. Please reply back to your post if this resolved the issue. I would rather you try this first before going further.

I also have a technika 19dvdid-207 tv stuck in standby mode or blink mode. Was watching BBC1 then screen went off. Have changed batteries in the remote.

try a remote reset by pressing every single button on the remote starting from the very top left hand button and pressing every single button - if that dont work ring the helpline with your reciept and they can sort you out from there.

I have a technika lcd tv/dvd. It is only a few months old but it is stuck in standby with the red light on the front continually flashing and will do nothing else. Any ideas?

I have same unit (which works in my case) but the red light does not flash on 'Standby', only when it is seeking a station after pressing the red button on the remote.

Try disconnecting the TV from the power outlet and leave OFF for a couple of minutes.
If that did not work, try pressing the "DEMO" button on the remote or the front panel if you have one, or you may want to go into menu and look for something that says "demo"
Good Luck.

It could be a nylon cam thats cracked and thrown it out of mechanical alighnment??? this is not for the handy man repairer!!! this should be taken to a repair shop for an estimate! as there are hundreds of volts inside a tv that can cause you to be seriously killed!!
