Tv popped and went dead

According to my wife, tv "popped and went dead." I reset power strip and may or may not have turned it on but only front panel indicator lights have come on: no picture or sound or other indications, won't shut off with remote.

Probably as stated before me the power supply is bad.Look at the power supply to see if any caps are bulging or worse yet exploded especially under the silver cage on the right side . Capacitors can be changed out of your handy with a soldering iron. If not,you can purchase this power supply and install it to see if that solves your problem : http://www.shopjimmy.com/vizio-0500-0507-0331-power-supply.htm

Sounds like the power supply failed. If out of warranty and you want to open it up, look for damaged parts on the power supply board. Unplug the set. Use your nose to sniff out the burnt parts.

I have a Samsung model PN60F5300BF that just died on me. Its barely 2 years old and one day it just went dead as if there is no power to the TV, even the red indicator light does not come on anymore


This may seem silly but you shuold check to be sire the power cable is plugged into the back of the TV, the other end is in a power receptacle, and if it's in a power strip, that that strip it turned on (some have a switch). A breaker might have tripped too. If none of these are correct, see if there's a reset button on the rear of your TV.

Panasonic big screen TV will not turn on. I need to know what part to order


The power supply board is the most likely failure. What is the vintage of the TV?
It may be possible to repair the TV by replacing possible failed capacitors, or you could replace the entire board.

Was watching my samsung LN55C630 TV and all of a sudden it just went dead. nlo picture and no sound,also the power light went out thats normally on when the tv is off.


Check the circuit breaker first for power to the outlet it is plugged into. If it is in a power strip then make sure that the reset is hit on that. I sounds like you had a line surge for some reason. If all else fails there is a fuse on the power board in the TV. Check to see if that is blown. If not check for black burn marks on the power supply board. Could have blown that altogether.

Tv will not power up



Press the TV button or ON/OFF button while remote is in TV mode and there's a source of power to the outlet or outlet strip.

Make sure the TV is plugged in.

You might have tried to turn on the TV during the lamp cool-down. Wait a few moments and the picture will appear.

Has the power light on the front of the TV been blinking for one minute? If so, the lamp may be dead. Refer to the Power indicator
is blinking or flashing section below for more information.

When you first plug your TV into an outlet, the Power indicator on the front panel will light and blink for approximately 30 seconds
and then go off during the initialization of the TV. This happens only when the TV is unplugged and plugged back in. The TV can
only be turned on after the Power indicator goes off.

Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is "live" by plugging in something else, such as a lamp.

Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the
remote control solutions on page 53.

Multiple TV Setup might be set to the wrong option. Press MENU/OK on the front panel. Select Setup Options, then Advanced
Options, then Multiple TV Setup. Choose TV (default).

60" sharp aquos power indicator is flashing one short flash and one long flash and keeps repeating the sequence


POWER LIGHT FLASHES ONE SHORT AND ONE LONG FLASH.
What is the problem? THE PROBLEM IS THAT ONE OF THE LED's STRIPS IS BAD!

SHARP AQUOS LC60LE810UN RESET INSTRUCTIONS

1)Plug in TV to electric current First then wait until LED start flashing.
2)Press Volume DOWN [ - ] HOLD BUTTON.
3)Press Channel UP [ ^ ] HOLD BUTTON.
4)Press Power [ (') ] HOLD ALL three buttons until LED stops flashing and then release.

    ·This will reset the TV in order to fix the problem.
    ·THE FIX IS TO REPLACE ONE OF THE LED's. You need to open the back of the TV and you will also need to remove the front cover and panel to get to the LEDs. The TV will need to be placed facedown and on the backside. This is a 2 person job to turn the TV on its sides. Be careful with the white computer connectors (wide white strip) at the base of the TV where the TV stand sits. You will need to disconnect this in order to get to the LED's.
    Once you have the LED's exposed, you will need to unplug one by one by placing the new strip next to it until the unit turns on. You will have to use the RESET procedure above if the Power lite flashes. The Power lite MUST BE ON SOLID - no blinking in order to test the strips. The LED's will flash, but still one of them will be burned. Even if you stare and all the strip light-up, you will still need to check one-by-one!
    Once the TV lights up, your face will also light up with joy! Put everything back together and you are set. If you need the complete instructions which come from Sharp as to how to disassemble the unit, please send me an e-mail to LGTR61@YAHOO.ES. Please note I don't check this address daily, so a few days wait may take for you to receive the instructions.

    Where can you buy the LED's - try searching Yahoo.com or Google.com for resellers.
