Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

The television was not on but was plugged in when we lost power in our neighborhood not from weather but from a transformer going out or a car wreck. Since power was off we decided to go to bed. The power had gone out about 10:20 pm that evening.I woke up about 3 hours later and out power was back on all the other tvs in the house and in fact all electronics were working fine. Except my 37 lg in my bedroom. I looked at the front where the little light for on(green) and off(red) and it was flashing red green. I have tried the obvious things check power, check cable, unplug and plug back in and I even blew on it like the old nintendo games...... HELP!!!!!

More than likely, the power supply has blown capacitors in it. If you feel comfortable, you may search for a power supply module for it at & attempt replaceing it yourself, OR, I would submit a claim with your homeowners insurance as power surge damage(provided your deductible is not so high that it isn't worth it) Some electronics are more sensative than others & that is why the LG got it, but everything else is fine. I have been a TV tech for over 25 yrs. & have seen it happen more than once....good luck...hope this helps! Regards, Ross

My vizio Model SV470M will not turn on the power indicator light is not on either.

First, are you capable to open and repair this?
Being a power issue, we work "out to in". Plugged in wall and Power is not out in the neighborhood are too obvious to ask. Sooo... next .. Once back cover is off, look for and test the fuse on the PSU (power board), also look at this PSU board and see if any caps (capacitors) are bulged or popped. Both of these will kill a board, and usually caused by cheap caps or power surges from the power grid. You can replace the fuse easy enough, but you need good soldering skills to do the caps, and a supplier for the new caps. REPLACE ALL CAPS, not just the obvious bad ones. Otherwise, replace the whole board. Since you mentioned a "No Power" issue, this should fix it. Transformers are not too easy to test, (trans may be "browned" IE: burnt) and chips.. forget it, for both, replace the board. Hope this helps

Adt alarm has no power in it or sensors

Hello. You have lost power to your transformer. Look for a biege box about 3.5 inches square plugged into an outlet near the main panel. Chances are the wire going to it came loose. Other chance can be the tech. Plugged the transformer into a swtched outlet. Give that a try...phil

My aiwa tv has no power

what you can do is trouble shooting of the tv unit. first place to be check will be the powers supply section check weather the primary fuse get blown. if ok check the regulator and the bridge type diode which shorted. if all good, next will be the horizontal output transistor or an open resistance going to the b+ of the flyback transformer.

There was a power outage in my neighborhood and now the display screen wiil not appear on my unit. The fan will still turn on but the cold air from the air conditioner wont.

First, disconnect the power to the unit. (at the breaker) then turn it back on after 60 seconds.

That will reset the control board. If that does not work, it means you have lost low voltage.

Look for a small blade type fuse (like those in most cars) and see if it is blown. Make sure the power is off when you do this.

If the fuse is OK, and resetting it does not work, then you will need to check/replace the 24 volt transformer.

Fuse box cover lost

easiest way to do it is to get a box with multiple different size fuses in it, and individually pull each plug out, check it, replace it if needed with the correct size

A transformer blew in our neighborhood and now our tv picture is bowed and the colors are shadowing one another

Your conversion IC's are out, they cost about 40 dollars for 2, if you know how to solder, you can change them yourself, otherwise, repair shops usually charge 4 or 5 hundred

Outside transformer blew, now TV doesn't work

I hope is only a fuse and it will not be hard to find it should be close to where the power cord goes in and it has to be replaced with the same amps and size.Make sure the set is not plug in whe you remove the lower back and once you replace it put the back cover on and plug it in,if more damage is present it will blow up again right away or it will blow up when you push the power button,I hope it doesn't but if it does you will need someone qualified to check the rest.Be careful
