Hello madlady,

It sounds like you have a power supply issue. Now that being said, I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician look at this set and repair it. If you want to do this yourself you will need:

1) A schematic diagram (repair manual can get it at www.servicemanuals.net)

2) Multimeter (To measure voltage and resistance levels)

3) Isolation Transformer (To use with TV if you are planning on using equipment that requires AC power)

4) Oscilloscope (To measure and view waveforms for testing)

5) Pattern generator (To create a reference testing signal)

Now if you know what these pieces of equipment are you will need them, if you do not know what they are, I again suggest that you take the TV to a qualified TV technician for repairs.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

LG 42LK450 flat screen.I tried auto tuning but didn't pickup channel 31. I tried manual tuning with no result. The old style TV I had prior to this could pick up channel 31 so it isn't a reception...


If your trying to receive over the air make sure the TV is not set to a Cable mode, if your on Cable your new TV is most likely a ATSC tuner (digital) and the cable company can map channels any way they want. If your old TV had the older style cable tuner, the lineup will be different.
HDTV has level thresholds, if the signal is weak you wont see anything, but the old TV would.
Without knowing much about where or what sort of TV your using, these are my best ideas.

TV will not turn on. Red flashing light, nothing else. Tried remote, nothing. Tried manually turning tv on, nothing. Tried unplugging and plugging back in, nothing.


Hi.
This sounds like you are experiencing the same thing as thousands of other tv owners right now.
Your tv is suffering from " capacitor flu".

The capacitors that control voltage regulation, convergence, or the ones on the main board have failed.

This is not due to anything that you have done, it is because about 15 years ago, some companies chose to put profit ahead of quality.
There were about 20 electronic component manufacturers in the mid-1990's that mass manufactured capacitors, and they were done so with the wrong formula for capacitance gel. They used a formula which was later determined to be harmful to the capacitors, but instead of pulling those off of the market, they ignored the massive failures and left then out there on the market anyways.

All together, the companies made a combined 50,000,000 capacitors that were junk, and instead of lasting the 25-30 year design like they were supposed to, some of them are only lasting a few months to a few years, at best.

Now, that isn't to say that this means that your tv should be tossed in the trash, but if you take it to get it repaired at places like BestBuy, Fry's, or Staple's...you will want to get an estimate of repair costs before actually having it done.

The reason for this is because to get the proper capacitors put in your tv is a time consuming, and expensive repair.
You may find that the cost of repair is more expensive than the cost of replacing the tv, or you may find that it reasonably priced to get the repair.

That is why I recommend getting an estimate first.

This way, you will know ahead of time which way is the most economically feasible venture for you.

I hope this helps you understand what is going on with your tv, and that it gives you some insight as to how to remedy the situation.

Good luck to you, and have a good day.

My Panasonic Model: THL32U20A will not respond. You can turn it on manually (not by remote) and once turned on, nothing works, IE: remote doesnt do anything and you cant even change channels or volume etc...


I too have exactly the same fault. The Tv even turns itself on in the middle of the night, i have to unpug it from the wall. It has been in for repair 3 times now, one guy said there is nothing wrong with it. I am keen to hear if anyone has had this fault resolved.
Thanks

Before doing anything to your TV, try to reorient your
antenna. Then, if nothing happen, you may now call
service to adjust or replace component part.
