Spikes can occur on any service line, the question that needs an answer is what part fails when and if th LCD is subject to poor power delivery.

More than likely the power supply has defective parts, and or some other modules have failed.

Using a generator to direcly run a Plasma or LCD screen, and most any high end equipment is very dangerous for these. They are very critical to the quality of the electric power feeding them. If the AC frequency goes too far off specs, or there are noise spikes or distortions in the sinewave structure of the AC power, this can cause damage.

If you have a very high quality generator with very good power conditioning, frequency stabilization, and voltage regulation this would be the proper way to go.

Tv powers up but goes directly into stand by mode


An Electronic component has failed. Unless you can repair circuits, take it to a shop or friend who can. Consider cost of replacement. A few hundred will fix an old tv, a couple more and you have a whole new unit.

Emerson tv....won't turn on...stand by light won't go off


Not making it on or out of standby---first place to look is the power supply for signs of damage or puffed up filter caps there.

My JVC flat screen won't turn on, tried unplugging and resetting. Stand-by light is still on. And it's attached to a surge protector than to the wall. I've only had this for 1 year.


More than likely its bad capacitors on the Power supply very common problem with most models. You can get repair kits or replacement power boards from www.tvrepairworld.com

Nec pxt-42sx1b won't turn on. We press the on button on the remote and the stand by light turns from red to blue but then goes back to standby.


I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have tobuy and try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.3_26_2012_10_39_22_pm.jpg

My 40' vivo tv has turned off and won't turn back on but the red stand by light is on??


If the standby light is on and it does not respond, it is most likely to be a problem with the power supply . First try this, unplug and leave the set like that for a few hours. Then plug it back in to see if the tv attempts to turn on when you try to power it up. See if you hear a "click" even if it goes back to standby. Let me know what you found so that I can help you test the power supply board to confirm, if necessary.

My Bush tv won't come off of stand by there is a split second of static screen then it goes straight back onto stand by


Good day!

If your TV is CRT the problem could be the ply-back.
Try to replace the ply-back of your TV to fix that problem


Thank you and good luck.

Goodmans LD3265D1 TV won't switch on.


use a freeview box, turn the dtv off in the menu

To get it too power on press the source button a lot after a (good) few trys your get it up on another source, my own tv does this and using a freeview/freesat box makes it use-able just a pain to turn on in the first place even if you turn the dtv off in the menu

If anyone knows how to get it to turn on stright to another source would be great to know how
