Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a alba 19 inch flat screen tv from argos and when the tv has been on for longer than 5 mins from switching it on at the wall the av button stop working on the remote control. every other button seems to work except the av button, so i am not able to switch the tv over to my playstation or dvd player. when i put the tv on stand by and back on it still does not work. the only way i can get it to work is if i switch the tv off by the wall and back on and then the av button starts working untill 5 mins after the tv being on. i dont understand this. ive tried lookin at all the settings but can not find anything. many thanks

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.

The player has failed, it is not a product that is really repaired due to the low cost of a new one, I would just buy a stand alone player and right this off.

My 19 inch alba tv has just lost its power button lighting up when power supplied to it . The tv does not start?


Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
