    We had the same problem with both of our Austar boxes at the same time. We went away on holidays and turned everything off at the power points, when we came back neither of the boxes will turn on.

    We called Austar and they are sending us 2 new boxes.

    The strange thing is, it happened at the same time that both my mother's and my cousin's boxes lost power for no reason... Possibly a marketing scheme for Mystar??

So did you lock out the AUSTAR unit or the Projection TV. Have you tried a different source on the TV, such as a VHS player or a DVD player?

Power went out now the tv wont turn on, there is just a blinking


Does the power light just blink? Some of the Mitsubishi sets have a receiver built into them; if the power is removed the power light upon return of power should blink for 70 seconds and then go out--then the set should turn on---if the light never stops blinking---2 possible things--set should have a recessed button on the front keyboard(reset) that you can depress with something not sharp and see if after 70 seconds the light will stop blinking; if no, the set now has a damaged receiver(from the back of the set it is a large metal box on the far left side-----the blinking power light is the receiver trying to boot up like a computer---only should happen if power lost---let me know what you find----the receiver if bad is usually no longer available and can only be repaired by removing it and sending out for repair/rebuild.

Tv wont turn on get audio then tv shuts off timer lite blinking


If TV stays in stand by with audio but no video, then common faults are the ballast board, or a fault on digital board.

If the led stays blinking , and tv turns off then the TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Tiger Zoombox wont turn on


I solved my problem, after much digging, i found out that there is power at the lamp switch but no power at the the bulb. There is a yellow and orange pair from main switch to the board and a red and orange pair to the board. The red/orange pair connector, had orange side all black. could have been a lose connection but as soon as I shorted the connector on the board, it all came on as normal. YES I ALSO THOUGHT IT WAS THE BULB. I have had this system for 2 years and we use it atleast 4 hours a day. The old bulb still perfect.
Hope this helped.

Panosonic PT-61LCX65 wont turn on, no power


Check your bulb. I had the same problem and it turned out that the bulb was shattered. At no time, did the lamp light turn on.

No sound or picture on austar channel


This is most likely the power supply module that has failed, or the main fuse is blown. If the main fuse is blowing, then there is a serious short somewhere in the system.

No ordinary tv channels can only get Austar


A TV electrician told me how. We had inadvertantly put the "demo" on and once we turned it off, it went.
