Sounds like it is a sony tv ? If it is you could have loose contacts in the horizontal or flyback sections . Or you could have shorts in the startup section . If it is a sony. Otrherwise make and model would help in this matter . Good luck

    Nope that is not the model # . It on the back of the set . Now some of the older sets when the power light only came on , you could have a problem where the regulator IC in the power section is going weak not allowing set to turn on . Also there is the horizontal transistor could be shorted and the set is in shut down . Other problem is the flyback transformer . This was also a common failure with these sets . Give me a model # as this will help me better identify your set with past problems i might have run into. Thanks

  • Louis faenzi Mar 04, 2008

    Sorry to give some bad news but this set was not sold in the US according to Hitachi's web site . And they had nothing posted in the in current problems section . I would tend to guess that a tech might charge between $80 to $150 for the labor plus the parts if you could take it to your local repair shop . If i were to guess by the pictures i've seen on the net of these sets i would bet a bad flyback transformer . Call the shops in your area to get the best price on getting it serviced . Sorry i could not have had better news for you . Good luck on getting it repaired it looked like a good set !

Finlux tv showing black screen after switching on by remote. standby light is flashing buy mo picture or sound

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Sharp aquos tv, model no. lc-70c-6500u, no audio, visual at power up, standby/power light flashes 2 times long, 5 times short, nothing else happens, what is this mean?

Sounds like main board fault. 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.

Try unplugging and plugging the tv back in. Could also be a problem with the power button itself. Make sure the membrane contacts are clean and that the membrane is making contact with the contacts.

Tv wont turn on

Hello Charliebigwh, hi technically your monitor's power supply has a problem, this is either your switching regulator does not work or there is a short in that section, If you want to do it your self, need to replace all large value, and or high voltage capacitors(especially the capacitors with its top is bubbly), need also to replace the switching IC, and power transistor.

Have it checked by a technician if you cannot do the work.

so you got the audio working correct? Sounds like it may be going into a protection mode of some sort now. I would try leaving it unplugged overnight and try again the next day and see if it starts working
