You need a remote to turn it on. the factory remote can be ordered sva for $95 or if you have a cox cable remote push the tv button then hold the setup button until it blinks twice. then enter 8605. the remote should blink twice. then hit the power button and the tv should turn on.

I cant get the tv on...a red light comes on but it wont get a picture and i dont have the remote anymore


The TV may simply be stuck in standby, the remote control will be required to get it started if there are no front panel controls. If there are front panel controls then the panel lock may be on. The remote is needed.

SVA PLASMA TV


I got this same tv from a guy in my area he would press the poewer botton on the tv and the standby light comes on and then turns off, so he gave me the tv for free i took the back panel off, and everytime i press the power botton the green light came on where the screen board is and went back off after i let the botton go i took the power board out took it to a repair shop to see if there was anything a wrong with it everything was good so i replaced the two fuses on the board and the one on the screen board, i had a feeling about the power switch so i jumped the wires on the switch purple to purple and green to green, I put it back together pluged it in the standby light came and stays on now, so i went out and got a universal remote for the sva at walmart for $15 programed it and pressto the tv works perfect so three fuses $3.60 two small pieces of wire and ele tape $0 my time 35 mins = one working plasma for $3.60 so when you have this problem like everyone else check the power botton switch, there cheap and check the fuses theres only three and if that dont work idk what to tell ya. and you do need a remote or tv wont work.

Did not turn on


I'm having the same problem with my SVA. It would turn on and after an hour or so it would power off but the red light would still be on. It got so bad that after a few mins it would power off. Then one day nothing but I still had the red light. I opened the back of the tv and found some leakage of a transformer (maybe a cap) on the power supple board. I order a new board. I will let you know if it works or not. Email me if you figured out what was wrong with yours as I think we have the same problem. mrjoshuabenson@hotmail.com

The issue with these TV's are the boards internally go bad, for Power the three capacitors get round at the top and either you replace the whole board from SVA fro 300.00 or buy three capacitors and replace them

Remote control codes


The only remote that works is the one 4 all. Call ONE 4 ALL for the right model number. They then can program the remote on the phone to operate the SVA tv. It worked for me until the set died this week. Guess why I am looking on this site.
