I was searching some for help with my GTW-L17M103. It too went black. I could not turn it off (power light was green). Thank goodness, I found your solution, except I need a little more help. I opened my monitor, removed the metal cover and found F3. I see what my daughter refers to a little "white bridge" with the letters FA2 or EA2. My questions are: Is this the correct part that needs to be replaced (2 amp fuse)? Where can I buy it? What instrument or tool do I need to replace the part? You mentioned you could not find a surface mount (not sure what that is), therefore you "piggybacked a 2 amp pico fuse on the blown one and it is working great". Where can I get a 2 amp pico fuse? I'm not a hardware guy but I'm not afraid to work on electronics. In advance, I thank you for this great service you provide via the forum.

Have a Phillips flatscreen tv. I can't turn it on with the remote but can turn it on by pushing power button onthe side of tv. Batteries are new.


Hello, you could still have a worn out power key. Turn on the power manually(power key on the TV) then select channels/adjust volume/press the number keys.If all these work on your TV, then you know another remote is needed.

Can I turn on the samsung flatscreen without a remote? The remote got water in it and will not work. Does the tv have a power button located on the tv?


Yes, channel buttons, sound buttons and power button is located at the side of the screen. Look for it. For most TV's its located behind and for some at the side and for some in the front bottom.

Help!!!!! I'm housesitting and cannot get the Fujitsu flatscreen to turn on. I've changed the remote batteries, but the red standby button the the left bottom of the TV screen keeps blinking. Can you help...


1. Try using the on/off switch that is on the TV itself and use the other buttons on the TV for sound and channel etc.

2. You might need to try a replacement remote.

3. On some remotes you need to press the "TV" button and, then, the power switch on the remote.

I just bought a philips 42" flatscreen TV model #42ef73208-37 and it won't turn on. I have a red blinking indicator light but the TV won't turn on, what can be the issue?


  • Your TV has a protective mode in case there is too much heat build-up.
  • Check the clearance around the vents of the device to be certain there are no blocking walls or cabinetswhich would limit the air flow.
  • • Check that the TV’s AC power cord is plugged into the mains socket.
    • Unplug the television, wait for 60 seconds.
    Then re-insert plug into the mains socket and turn on the television again.
If that fails take it back.. Good luck

The first mistake was the Philips TV. They are the worst tv. They are constantally needed to be updated. If you have warranty, I would recommend you taking it back or calling philips customer service and getting your tv repaired or replaced.

Philip hd flat screen


first time I have seen a spa tv lcd fail, sorry but I can tell you it is the capacitors in the tv that have issues they will have to be re[placed call a service tech that can take the tv in for electronic work if you want to spend the money or you can replace the whole thing for probably less money than repairing the old unit, by the way if you have a tv in a spa the humidity is well past the operational limit of the tv components
