    Thanks James, I got that far too. In a quiet environment you can hear a nasty "arcing" noise at about 1Hz in time with the LED flash, naturally coming from the area near the power connection. I'll open her up, power on, and stand back. The culprit will no doubt be winking at me, I just hope the whole board isn't fried now. If you're interested I'll post an update, I guess someone might be.

    I've just bought the goodmans gtv26wlcd tv from a friend. The picture was absolutely fine at his place but as soon as I got it home the picture is really dark. Even when I turn the brightness/contrast up it still seems to be a really muddy picture. The really funny thing is when I press the teletext button the usual brightness comes back but only for a second before the teletext screen comes on - weird I know.

    Any ideas??

    Hi, My friend bring his Tv, in similar problem. This is a power Supply failure. The all PCB was overheated, and burned out. The High Voltage is spark. I isolated, and change few parts, and maybe switch on. I left it, and cca. one hour later, switch off again, and not wanna start. I think the all module is worn, If I change one parts, the another will gone. I think scrap all. I check the upper link and "Sorry, this product is no longer available from us" :(

The problem lies with the power supply, my fault was with the 5volt output, which was closed circiut, to ground.
There is a kit for about £55, but i hear that these modules have a high fail rate. I did however find that the two output transistors were shorted also,
For a new module, sets back about £100+ (searching came back with one at £120 +PP,.
Is it worth it as a 26 LCD is roughly £150 new with warranty.

Try unplugging it for a couple of minutes to reset the tv then plug it in and see if it comes on if not you probably have a power supply problem.

Proscan LED TV Will power up the red standby light & standby on amber when turned on but does not show picture or sound unless I unplug and replug over

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Why won't my 32" Goodmans TV power up?

There could be an open fuse internally or the power supply may have failed.

50px1d-uc When I try to turn it on, the red power light blinks, I hear a click, then the light turns amber then back to red. Usually I'd hear the click then it would turn green and the tv would work...

I came across this in a manual
-Without CableCARDTM : Illuminates red in
standby mode, Illuminates green when the
TV is turned on.
-Inserting the CableCARDTM : Illuminates
orange in standby mode, Illuminates green
when the TV is turned on....
You might want to check your cable card. It seems to mimic your problem. Try taking the card out and gently clean, with a dry cloth, the contacts/strip. Then take some "canned air" and blow out the card socket from the side to dislodge any accumulated debris.

Stuck on amber light will not turn on

An amber light normally means that there is no signal getting to the screen, if it was stuck in standby then the LED would be red.

Please check your connections to cure the fault

I would take it back and get a replacement, it is a lemon, it will void warranty if you open it up. It can be defctive power supply module.
