Red light is on but tv will not turn on. also right side power button does not turn on tv. i already sent this tv out to a repair shop and they could not get this to happen frequently enough to find a solution. when i got the tv back it worked for 2 months before it started happening again. i did remove the back panel and vacumned it out, i could not see how to take the power supply out to get to the back side to clean it.

Hello,

your TV is having a power problem. The power supply board is defective that's why the TV won't power up. Its receiving power but it cannot transfer the current to the necessary part of the TV because a capacitor, diode, etc may have been faulty. Until these bad components are replaced, the TV might not come on.

If you know about TV repairers, I would suggest that you open the TV and read the power board/panel with a meter, detect the bad component and replace it. Take note that TV stores a lot of current that can shock, so leave the TV for a while before you open it.

You can as well change the power board completely.

I wish you good luck.

How do I fix the problem with my TV? Details are below.


Normally on the Panasonic tv this will call for a service call. The key to getting it repaired correctly is to check for a certified Samsung repair shop because most of the parts come from Samsung. Now if you want to do your own research call to 800 number for Panasonic Tv see if there are any problems with that model that the manufacturer has extended but does not post. I had one repaired that the red light on also so I understand and it went out approximately 4 3/4 years. If your in the Atlanta area use Norman electronics they have repaired hundreds on tvs for me due to my work.

It is a 32A14 model. power to house was cut off, electric people replaced phone poles. when power came back on tv wouldn't turn on, no red LED indicator light lit up, and it makes this chirping sound in...


The tv high voltage "H" horizontal transistor IC is dead.That "H" transistor IC sit out side outer wall of the FBT-the flyback transformer,that the big black block of a plastic,with a red wire with a cap hook up to the CRT-(tv tube).Best take to the shop for repair,because part for analog tv are impossible or near impossible to find and do for the replacement.

I have a Phillips 42 inch Plasma. I tried


One of two issues/problems:
1) Main Power supply problem
2) High Voltage Power supply problem.
A Good TV Service Shop that works on Philips would be the first place I'd call. It will be much cheaper to bring the TV into the shop instead of having a tech come out to your location.
Possibly a $200 to 300 dollar repair.
Blessings,

Our Tv will not turn on. It has a red stand by


I've had the same problem. Found out it was a failed power supply component. Took it to local TV/Computer repair shop and they fixed it up in a couple of days.

I have a lg plasma,and the problem is it comes on for about 1 second then shuts off. repair shop says its the power supply? what do you think? the led is red when off and turns off white almost very light...


your power supply is shorted; remove it from the set and, have a TV shop repair it if you are unable to do the repair yourself.
any good shop can do the repair easily and, much cheaper than the manufacturer you can find the power supply by looking to where the power cord enters a circuitboard that will be the power supply

The tv red light keeps


Try leaving it unplugged for an hour so it can reset itself.
If it still has the problem, it may need a new power supply inverter board. That's what happen to mine.

Toshiba 57H81 Flashing Red Power Light, Blown Fused F850+F852


Solved by resoldering some solder joints!!!!!!!
********
Toshiba Model 57H81 Rear Projection TV - Purchased 11-09-2001

Problem: Toshiba 57H81 Flashing Red Power Light, No Picture/Sound, Blown Fuses F850 + F852

Symptoms January, 2009:

  • Upon turning on set I got flashing red power light and nothing else.
  • Removing plug for one minute and plugging in results in:
    • Audible click, steady red power light for 2 seconds then slow flashing red light
    • Pushing power button results in steady red for about 2 seconds then slow flashing red light, no other set activity
  • Removing power cord for several hours and plugging back in made no change
    • Audible click, steady red for about 2 seconds then slow flashing red light
  • Possible related note: Over past several months occasionally the entire screen would flicker momentarily and at other times be problem free for weeks.
  • Fuses F850 and F852 found blown

Repairs Made:
  • PD0074 DEF/CON Power Board
    • There are two main power supply capacitors in this set. They are C-809 and C-810. One their negative lead on the printed circuit board re-soldered leads and nearby contacts. I’m told that because the factory left out a printed circuit board eyelet, the connection will come loose over time. When I called Toshiba customer service they said there was a known solder joint problem causing blinking red light.
    • Replaced blown fuses F850 and F852.
      • I actually installed a fuse panel on the inside of the cabinet and routed the fuse connections here instead of ordering the special fuses and replacing them on the circuit board.
      • Had to use a 5 Amp SLO-BLOW for F850. Fast blow does not survive power up. Get the red blinking light.
      • Used a fast blow 2 Amp for F852.
  • PD0073 SIGNAL Board
    • Re-soldered Q751 + Q752 STK392-110 Convergence Amps
    • Re-soldered adjacent pads that looks suspicious

Total Cost to Repair about $10
  • Twelve hours of my time over three days to research issue, disassemble set, make repairs, add fuse panel.
  • Already owned Service Manual and Circuit diagrams from a different 2004 repair.
  • Less than ten dollars at Radio Shack for fuses and fuse panel. Already had wires, etc.
  • Some solder. Already owned de-soldering tools, etc.
  • Visited both local authorized Toshiba factory service repair facilities. One said repair would have to include replacing Q751 + Q752 STK392-110 Convergence Amps with ST392-180, and realigning set for a total of $500+ and it would be more if they had to order a power board. NO THANK YOU! Other shop said $65 for site visit and $30 to make an estimate that could be applied to repair.
