Tv tries to turn on 3 times

Tv tries to come on 3 times, then goes dead. have to unplug for a few mins and plug back in before it will do any thing. while its trying to turn on you can hear a static sound briefly, like the noise a tv makes when u turn it on, but no picture. took front panel off, bulbs do not appear to be lighting at all. took rear cover off, blew dust off boards and inspected, no visible problems.

It sounds like you have a bad capacitor. When one is faulty, they will demonstrate this type of behavior. The issue is finding out which one. If you are not a skilled technician, this is a difficult task. I would recommend that you take it to a TV repair shop, and let them repair it, if you are unable to. The good thing is that the cost of a repair is significantly less expensive than a new TV.

Tv turns itself off when it warms up...unplug it a few min.plug it back in and it turns on itself then off again when it warms up


There can be several causes for this, few of which you can do anything about. However, a few things to try:

1) Replace the batteries on your remote control.
2) Try resetting the logic functions on your tv by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.
3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop.
4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-video system? Changed to a new remote?

I hope this helps. Joe

TV turns off by itself


Thus the line connected to a surge protector or some kind of line protector. This can be consider.

Or if this is a crt type tv. This could be a fault on high voltage section. Horizontal output transistor or flyback. But check also for loose connection/solder crack. That clicking sound may be the relay in action.

hope i give some correct input.
