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.

My 6 to 7 yr old television suddenly went dead


There is a board that manages the power going into your tv I would check around with local mom and pop tv reapir shops. The board is not expensive its the labor I am not sure where you live but I am sure there are local techs that work on flat panel tv's. They are pretty affordable these days. Most flat panel tv's are rated for 60,000 hrs as there life span. Hope that helps
