TELEVISION TV TURN ON AND THEN INSTANTLY TURN OFF

Posted by on

  • tiaralake Aug 20, 2008

    I have a 32" RCA television that is 12 years old. It loses the picture after the tv is on for about a 1/2 hour. Sometimes it comes back on by itself, or after waiting 10 minutes or so I can turn on using the remote. A few times the screen goes down to a horizontal white bar and then returns to normal in an instant. It seems to me something is overheating and shutting down until it cools down, but I am not sure. From day one the TV usually requires 2 or 3 pushes of the ON button to turn on properly.

I had a similar problem on a 27" RCA and the solution was replacing the regulator and the surrounding components, there is a regulator kit that has all the components that are to be replaced, at the parts store you need to quote the model # and they should be able to tell you the kit

Not sure what model # it is , it sounds like a bad flyback transformer. If you can solder and unsolder you may fix it yourself for under $30.00 . If not a shop might charge you $85 to $110 .

Color recently changed and I cannot get it adjusted properly. Picture goes in and out.


Please do the following steps:

  1. Turn on the television.
  2. Please wait approximately 40 seconds for your TV to completely start up.
  3. On the TV remote control, press and hold the UP ARROW button.
  4. While holding the UP ARROW button, press and release the POWER button on the TV set. (The button may be on the front, top or side of the TV.) NOTE: The TV may turn off and then back on.
  5. Release the UP ARROW button.
If the issue does not resolve, please follow these steps:

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

It wont turn on anymore. it fires then instantly shuts off, doesnt even flash screen. standby lights still flash and its trying to turn on, just cant get on. you can hear the on sound and then the tv...


Depending on the age of your tv, if you hear a rapid clicking, it seems like your ballast is starting to turn on your tv but it's not able to. (1) Check your lamp, (2) reset the lamp timer, (3) make sure the cover panel is all the way. the positioning sensor might not be detecting the cover all the way in.
Personally I think you're experiencing a ballast problem.

TV wont turn on, sandby light flashes 7 times.


Any malfunction associated with a flashing stand-by light usually indicates a circuit problem or defective component. Unfortunately, the days of taking off the back cover of your TV and replacing a defective tube or fuse are long gone. Proper servicing will require troubleshooting procedures that can only be performed by a qualified electronic repair facility or professional television repair person. Ask for an estimate and a realistic appraisal of whether the set can be adequately fixed. Depending on the age and condition of your TV it may not be cost effective to repair.

MAGNAVOX 27" TV, PICTURE START UP PROBLEM


This problem with your television set is more than likely a problem with intermittent component failure. The fact that the television turn on for awhile is a sign the the component or components are intermittent.The reason the television turns off is that it goes into the protection mode caused by the intermittent component or components. They are unstable and are causing unstable voltages supplies to appear in the circuits. The television has a built in feedback circuit that will detect the faulty operation and turn off the television. When it stabilizes again the television turn back on. This is usually a sign of aging or faulty components. The problem will only get worse and the television should be thoroughly tested. You can call Magnavox customer support at this telephone number 1-800-705-200. Give them the model number of your television and tell them about the problem you are having with intermittent turn on of the television. They will be able to tell you where to take the television for testing and service. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Toshiba television


If the glass picture tube is cracked it is not repairable. In some cases it would be possible that the tv would still work if it has a cracked glass but it would not be advisable to use it as it could allow x-ray radiation to escape. The tube is a vacuum and a cracked tube would lose it's vacuum (**** air inside) and cause it to instantly burn out when turned on. Sorry :(
