TV wont turn on

We lost power in the whole community last night and now the tv wont turn on. I had it on a power surger and even changed the surger out and still nothing. Everything else on the surger works but not the tv. Could it just be that the tv is gone?

Have you checked the fuses inside the set. The power outage could have surged just enough to blow the fuse. Dont forget to unplug it when you check the fuse.

Power went out last night and now the tv time button is blinking and tv wont turn on

thats caused by failed caps on the DM power board. When the power is lost the caps discharge and then cany recharge when the power is restored. The WS55859 dm repair kit from is the correct kit for that symptom the kit contains the caps and the CD with instructions for the repair.

Tv all the sudden wont turn on and wires smell like they are burn

What worked last night and last week does not play any role on what works now. The issue here is power supply that you smelling, and that crackling sound backs it up. Now you have choices but there not all in your favor and you got to expect that when it comes to repair as its going to put a dent in the wallet.

Powerboard/deflection unit $250 plus labor..

Plus whatever got burned inside during this whole ordeal. Concider this: Cost of new verses Repair of old. Also a new tv will give you its life plus 3 years warranty to boot, this tv will give you 90 days after its fixed on the part only, after witch other things can go wroung.

I agree with repair only if your willing to pay for it. There are Quality repair places like click and check if they can come to you if not you need to check you local listings for a tech locally.

diagnosis: power/deflection unit
Prognosis: 90 days parts/? Labor

please be considerate whren leaving positive ratings and feedback today.

72 inch rear projection tv took a power surge last

if ure handy pop the back off and there should be a main power board and a fuse on it, make sure you use the same fuse if it is blown do not stick another type or size in it, put it back together and turn it on if it blows again it will be somthing else if not it should work
