    I had the same problem with the Element FLX-3210. I read somewhere that someone said if you did not disable the turn off screen on a computer this would cause a problem. I have been having the computer turn the monitor off for some time but is still worked. This time I had shut the computer down while the television was on.

    Did you find out anything else?

    I have the same problem. The red led is on steady. Neither the remote or the front panel power switch will turn the set on. Does anybody know who manufactures this set? If I knew that, I might be able to find a service manual.

    Hi, another flx-3210 here with the same problem. Was driving it off a PC. turned off the power strip and later TV would not turn on, just the standby light. Does anyone know for sure which component is dying in these? Which component is the "control box"? I called the tech support number in the manual and they said it was $275 out of warranty (mine was 2 weeks out of warranty). This was a repair facility- not owned by proview or element. If you're pissed off about this I recomment spending an hour posting negative reviews on element and/or proview products wherever you can. The least you can do is warn others.

    I have the same issue with my element electronics flx 3210.
    I think we need to sue element electronics because they need to recall this product and permanently fix the problem.
    I called them and i was told it will cost me $242.00 to get it fix.
    This is BS.

  • jpiper0127 Feb 13, 2009

    I have the same problem. Tv just would not come on at all. Can't find a reset button. Red light is on and remote turns the green light on front on and it blinks but TV does not come on. Just continues to blink more rapidly until goes back to red standbuy light. Does same with turing on at TV. There is no sound or noise from electricity at all. Can anyone tell me what to do. Or if I need a part where exactly I can get it.

  • glowgoboy Mar 14, 2009

    Only the red light is on. Very interested in fixing this myself.

What the heck!?  My 3202 just shut off out of nowhere.  It was working PERFECTLY before just now & i've never plugged up my computer to it.  I'll be pretty livid if I have to cough up $$$ for a control box.

Sony sets are tricky to troubleshoot and you're not telling us much. For example, do you hear anything at all when you turn it on (clicking or high voltage coming up then shutting down). Anything appears on the screen at all ? Does the red light on the front blink and if so how many times ?

No power when television is turned on

1) test the outlet box and plug a desk lamp if work, if does the circuit is o.k if NOT reset the c.breaker from your home
2) test the power cord for open or break
3) see for a blown fuse inside and replace, or c.breaker tripped reset.
4) test for short in transformer+coil+filter+diode+rectifier and ground chassin.

Turned off television after watching it this a.m. will not turn back on. changed batteries in remote. red light on front of tv is not on as usual when the tv is off.

Hi - Check to see that the power cord is still connected or that the power source has not been shut off.

If it is plugged in, if the power strip is still on and working correctly, and if the breaker the tv is on is not tripped, then I would recommend unplugging the TV for 5 minutes and plugging it back in. Sometimes the tube in the TV can become "overloaded" and needs a brief 'cooling period'. Let us know if this does not work. Thanks!

46 inch just stopped working was okay. 1 min then walked away came back it was off.. and my breaker was tripped.. what's wrong with it?

Try another outlet which is not connected to the same breaker circuit... us an extension cord. If the TV works fine, you may just need a new breaker. They are thermal devices and do go bad.

Tv won't come on

Does the outlet still work? The storm may have tripped the circuit breaker for that outlet only.
Another option is there was a surge of power and you weren't using a surge protector. That can overload a capacitor and you will need to get a technician to fix it

Audiovox AVT2540 won't turn on


The only possible check that could be done without removing/opening the Audiovox TV would be to check for the presence/absence of supply power/voltage depending on how the TV is powered (12VDC or 120 VAC). Normally, there would be an fuse and/or circuit breakers.for the RV's entertainment system including the TV.
The 120-volt circuit breakers and 12-volt fuses are located in the same compartment. These devices interrupt the power if the circuit is overloaded.The 120-volt circuit breakers include a 30 amp main breaker and several smaller breakers for individual circuits. If a circuit breaker is tripped, look for an overload on the circuit, then reset it by turning the breaker OFF and then turning it ON. Do not try to reset a breaker the second time without locating the overload problem. The 12-volt fuses protect individual circuits. If the circuit is overloaded, it will blow the fuse and the fuse must be replaced. Check the circuit for an overload and replace the fuse with the same type or amperage rating.

If the above checks out, then problem is internal to the unit and would require removal from its current position.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
