I would check 2 things. If the TV trips another breaker in the house of the same rating, you probably have a short in your TV and will need to have it serviced.(You didn't drop it did you? :-) ) The short may also occur by too much stress on the power cord where it enters the TV, common to need to cram the cord into small spaces when wall mounting. If the TV only trips that particular breaker, I would try replacing the breaker. Replacing the breaker costs very little and will only take you a few minutes. You can buy a replacement breaker at most hardware stores. Just make sure to disconnect the main supply first! Also, make sure the breaker is rated correctly, using a higher amperage breaker will increase your chances of starting a fire.

Does it have a USB port to connect a Ruko stick? If not, how can I connect it?


The KDF-42WE655 does not have a USB port. The current Roku sticks plug into the HDMI port on the TV. You will need to use the power adapter that came with the unit. Plug the USB cord (mini or micro USB) into the back (or side) of the Roku Stick and then plug the power adapter into a nearby power outlet. (It's a 5V 1A DC power adapter.) Roku sells this adapter separately on their Accessories page: https://www.roku.com/accessories . It's ~$10. If you have mounted your TV such that the power outlet is hidden behind the TV, you'll get to the outlet or use another nearby outlet. (Make sure to avoid a tripping hazard if you use an extension cord or power strip to increase the number of available outlets.)

I hope this helps.

Tv will not come no timer lite blinks


Things You'll Need:


  • Electrical outlet
  • Fuses
  1. Check that the power cord is securely plugged into the power outlet.

  2. Make sure that the power outlet is receiving electricity by plugging a different device into the plug and turning the power on. If the other device does not work you likely have a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

  3. Replace the blown fuse or reset the circuit breaker as needed. If it happens again, an electrician should assess the problem.

  4. Contact akai Support if Steps 1 to 3 do not solve your problem. Only a trained service technician should attempt to fix the power problem with your television

Picture color is off after circuit breaker tripped. Only blues and greens. Model SONY KDS - R60XBR2. Does the lamp do this when it needs replacing or could something else have blown when the breaker...


Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and 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 still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.

How do I take the stand off of the TV? (For wall mounting)


There will be clips or screws on the back of the TV which will need to be removed and the base stand will slide out of the bottom of the TV. Do NOT start taking screws out of the back of the TV without the wall mount with instructions. Sometimes there are spacers that need to be used with the wall mount and generally only four screws need to be removed from the TV. The TV should have instructions on how to prepare the TV for a wall mount as well. All are different, but very similar to do. If you lay the TV face down on a soft surface (do not slide it around) you probably can see what screws need to be removed to remove the TV base. Keep the screws with the stand for later use if desired because you will need them to re-install the case later. Here are two examples;

I plugged in a vacum on the same outlet and the alarm went off what do i do


if the alarm went off when you plugged in your vacum it must be on the same circuit or on the rcd side of the consumer unit which must have tripped when you plugged in the vacum if you rewire the fuse or just turn on the trip on the breaker or on the rcd then reset your alarm and this doesnt sort it out or it keeps repeating then then ring a local electrician

Television won't turn on. The standby light is out and the tv is just dead


Check the outlet. If you plug a lamp into the same outlet and it doesn't work, you have no power there (reset the circuit breaker or call an electrician).

If the lamp does work, look for a circuit breaker on the back of the TV - it's usually a red or brown rod (about half as thick as a pencil and less than an inch long) sticking out. Press it in. If that fixes it, fine. If it keeps happening, take it to a repair shop - something is wrong inside an, since it's plugged into the wall (lots of electricity available), it could cause a fire.

If there's power to the outlet and no circuit breaker (or pushing it in doesn't help) you'll need a repair shop. (With the current repair prices and the current prices for TV sets, it may be cheaper to buy a new one. Shop around.)

My TV does not turn on I have a Mitszubushi 60 Inch


The first thing to do is check the outlet that it is plugged into.
Do you have a gfci outlet that may have tripped?
Sometimes the whole circuit that the tv happens to be plugged into may have tripped at the electric panel.
Chek for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.
If that is ok, check inside the tv for a blown fuse close to where the power cord is attached.
If still no power, then it will take a checking of the power supply/power circuit board, which may be something a service person should check into.

Samsung 101cm lcd Mounting??


Yes they are the mounting holes but I would not trust a universal mount to hold an expensive TV set on a wall.
