Tv won't power up

This is my second one and I cant get either to power on at my house. I checked the plugs and they power on other items. Is there any kind of reset switch or something I need to do?

You need in the states 110-115 V make sure the outlets are grounded and the wires are connected to the right terminals.
Black to the brass screw and not to the silver. White on the silver screw and green or bare to the ground (green or regular) screw

You may not have enough voltage at the wall outlet. you need to check to see if your pushing enough electricity for the unit to power up.

    the tv has a minimum wattage requirement an electrician will be able to tell you if you need to up the circuit breaker in amps but i would recommend a different one than the one who "built" the addition" just to double check his work

    I agree with dutchman05 Even though the lcd tvs I have seen will work in a 240 environment hence 110 to 240. the minimum you need for the tv is 110 however if you cant supply the wattage for the tv the tv may simply shut down. easy check carefully move the tv to another location and plug it in and see if it powers up

How do I get my Bush tv to start in HDMI mode not tv


you cant,the tv will always come on the tv channel. you can turn the item off that is plugged into the hdmi port then back on and it will take over the tv channel and switch to hdmi. so on a night turn off the item plugged into the hdmi port and on a morning after your tv has turned on then turn on the hdmi item and the tv will switch over itself

Try unplugging from outlet for fifteen seconds. Press the power button for a few seconds "before" plugging back in. Now plug back into the wall outlet and try turning it on to see if this reset the TV's settings.

I have a 42inch vizio and it is only 7 months old. today it will not turn on. it is plugged into a power protect strip cord, the power at my house did blink off for halk a second this morning.


Is anything else working that is plugged into the power strip? There is usually a breaker on the power strip (little button on the side) that may have been tripped. The other thing to check is try powering TV on using the TV power button and not the remote control.

I moved my TV from my old house to my new house. Before it worked just fine at my old house, brought it to my new house and it just doesn't turn on! Tried different outlets, wires, etc.


Check the power at the plug point. Check the plug of the TV. If there is no life, then you will need to open the TV panel and check for a blown fuse, a circuit break while transporting, a loose connector within the set or a possible damaged SMPS>

Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

My LCD flat panel occasionally powers off, but then will come back on 15-20 seconds later. I have replaced the power cord to the TV and that did not help. Also, the power cord is plugged into the same...


I would check the power board for any capacitors with domed tops and replace them. this would be the first thing to check. Also try plugging tv into another receptical. even thou other items are plugged into the same plug strip i have had plug strips with only one bad receptical. get what ai mean? We need to narrow it down. But bad capacitors are a common problem on multiple brands. Hope this helps. If not reply with the model number.

My Westy 47 TV has a very strange power-up problem! First, I found that the power supply was bad, I couldn't repair it, so I bought a replacement from ShopJimmy. The replacement seems to be working fine, and sometimes the TV works fine. The little green LED near the bottom edge of the controller board lights up when you connect the AC power, as it should. There is also a small green LED near the upper edge of the controller board that apparently lights only up when the controller is working properly. I've replaced the 470 mFd, 16 V. 'Lytic on the controller board, as everyone says to do. I still observed about 0.8 Vp-p of digital signals on the 5 Volt buss with the replacement capacitor these signals looked kind of like a 300 kHz clock and some other misc. digital stuff, so I added a couple of 0.1 mFd disc ceramics directly across it on the bottom side of the board. That reduced these signals to about 0.4 Vp-p, but the TV still won't turn on. The orange pilot light on the front is lit, but neither the buttons nor the remote will turn it on. The only way I can get the TV to turn on is to do the following: 1. disconnect the two power cables going to the two lamp inverter boards; 2. plug the AC power cable in. The 2nd green LED on the upper portion of the controller board now lights up when AC power is applied. 3. plug in both power cables to the two inverter boards while the power is on. The TV now works fine - all of the lamps light up, good picture, blue LED on the front panel, the remote works, etc. However, if I turn the TV off, and try to turn it back on, the small green LED on the upper controller board goes off, and the set won't come on! I've tried holding the on/off button down for over 10 seconds I read that this might re-boot the controller to no avail. The only way to get it back on is to go thru the 3 above steps again. I've read that there appear to be several versions of the firmware, and I wonder if this might be a firmware problem. If so, how/where can I get the proper firmware to install? Any suggestions? HELP! Please If someone would like to call me, please do at ************. Thanks, Gary W3DTN
