Your TV has put itself into the Protection mode. Normally this will take place when the TV senses a failing board inside, and this usually means the main power board has malfunctioned. Usually either a transformer or a capacitor is no longer operating correctly. The board will quite often be called a Backlight Inverter Board. Without actually doing some troubleshooting it is impossible to be definitely sure what it is. There are some things that you can do. First if there is a warranty left on the unit then definitely have it checked out right away. If not then unplug the power cord and leave it unplugged for 30 minutes.

If you have the experience and tools you can download a copy of the service manual of one of the many sites on the web. They include a lot of the necessary troubleshooting steps as well as what you need to do to resolve the issue. I would only recommend this if you have the experience. There are lethal voltages inside TVs that have to be dealt with properly. The manual will instruct you on how to read the built in self diagnostic, how to put the TV into service mode, and how to ensure that you have fixed the issue. They will also have the complete parts list.

We have lost our manual for this TV. Is it possible to print one from online or to have one mailed to us?


Emerson TVs are built by Funai. You can get the manual from the Funai site, http://www.funai-corp.com/support/manuals.aspx . Search for your TV model to find the manual as a PDF and then print the file.

The direct link to the manual for the EWL20S5 is http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/EWL20S5.pdf . For the best results when you want to print the file, save it to your computer and then open it in Adobe Reader (instead of using the plugin). You may need to change the scale at which the document is printing. Use the Print Preview feature to guide your printing choice.

I hope this helps.

Tv automatically shuts off after being on for a few seconds EWL20S5


The most common problem for this set that will cause shutdown after a few seconds is the inverter board. Looking at the set from the back, it is the long slim board that is normally located on the far left side of most lcd tv's. There are 3 electrolytic capacitors located on this board, and changing them will fix a lot of these sets for this problem. The location numbers of the caps are c330, c350, and c370. If you have any experience working on electronics, I would start by changing these caps. They are very inexpensive. If you would rather just change the inverter board, try shopjimmy.com. That is a good place to buy boards for flat screen tvs.
