    It's wonderful to know that there may actually be a solution! The only problem remaining is that I have NO idea what a flyback is, what a flyback looks like, where the flyback is located, what a flyback does, or how I would tell if the flyback needed replacing. Can you give me a little more help on this?

    Thank you so much for your time. Be safe and take care of you and yours!

Sounds like the flyback is arching. i would suggest looking the flyback over for signs of arching. You may need to replace the flyback. If you need to know where to get a replacement let me know and I will post a link along with the correct part to order.

LG 17LX1R flashing red LED - TV won't power up


Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.

Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

Manual for replacing lamp for 60v500a


1. Turn off the main power switch and unplug the power cord. Wait at least 30 minutes to allow the lamp to cool down before
replacing it.
2. Remove the front cover from the TV set. This is held by a snap on. Pull the front cover outwards until the quick snap on
disengages.
3. Remove the screw securing the lamp cover with a Phillips head screw driver. Remove the lamp cover.
4. Remove the two screws that hold the lamp in place. Remove the lamp unit by holding the lamp handle, then pulling outwards.
Exercise caution when removing the lamp unit to avoid injury to your fingers.
5. Replace with the new lamp.
Place the removed lamp into the empty box of the replacement lamp. Do not touch the front glass of the new lamp or its
receptacle. This may shorten the life of the lamp and reduce the picture quality.
• Push the lamp unit back to its original position.
• Tighten the screws firmly on the lamp unit. If they are loose, the TV may not operate correctly.
6. Without installing the lamp cover, the power will be off and the Lamp Indicator will flash. Be sure to install the lamp
cover by re-engaging the two clips and tighten the screws before turning the power on, otherwise it may cause unusual colors.
7. Install the front cover. Put the front cover back in and align the snap on quick connect then push inwards holding
the left and right side of the front cover until you hear a snap. Push the other snap on gently to make a good fit.
8. Plug power cord into AC outlet and turn on the main power switch.
NOTE: The lamp in this product contains Mercury. Dispose of properly in accordance with applicable environmental
laws. For Recycling and Disposal information, contact your respective governmental agencies or the
Electronic Industries Alliance at www.eiae.org (in the U.S.) or Electronic Product Stewardship Canada at

Power does not turn on when i push the power button


first make sure there is power to the outlet if it is agfi outlet push the reset button if it clicks its working but inany case plug something in to the same prongs that you know works(eg; lamp,radio,etc to make sure it is working. If it doesn't work go to the circuit breaker and look for a breaker that is not in the on position and turn it off the turn it on to reset it. If the outlet works,check the power cord for cuts fraying or any signs of damage and replace it if it is damaged. if the cord looks fine, check tho door switch(usually a pressure switch that must be fully depressed for the machine to start working. also is ther a power light on the unit? is it a top load or front load? what brand and model # is it?

I have DMTECH TV/DVD LT20X-1U23DMI .... LT1AHA02042 manufactured in October 2007. The TV doesn't turn on/doesn't have power. The outlet is fine. I've tried another working outlet without success. How do I...


Assuming that by "working outlet" you mean something else like a lamp will work, then, the first thing is to make sure its the TV and not the remote control. If the power switch on the TV will power the unit, the the remote probably has dead batteries.

Assuming it wont respond to either the power swtich on the TV, or the remote, then look on the back of the set for a reset button and push it. Some units have a sort of circut breaker. It may be best to do this with the unit unplugged.

If none of this works, then try moving the cord around. If the TV will power up depending on the cord position, then you have a bad power cord, which is a pretty easy repair.

If none of this works, then the chances are that you don't have a Do it yourself kind of problem

Magnavox mrv640-accidentally turned on progressive scan


Had exactly the same problem. You need to reset the DVD recorder to it's default setting. The default is "interlaced".

From the users manual.........

Switching the DVD Recorder
1
Disconnect the recorder's power cord.
2 Hold down the FF button (arrow pointing left) the front of the DVD Recorder while
reconnecting the power cord. 'PRO' (progressive scan) will appear
on the display.
3 If you want to switch back, repeat steps 1 and 2 . 'PRO'
(progressive scan) will disappear from the display. The DVD
Recorder is switched to 'Interlaced.'

The manual is at:

http://www.m4c.magnavox.com/files/m/mrv640_17/mrv640_17_dfu_aen.pdf

See page 12


It worked for me.

TV won't turn back on after power cord was disconnected from unit


If power cord was jerked out of the outlet or set, make sure it wasn't damaged. If it was unplugged violently, the circuit board inside the set could be damaged. Also make sure the outlet that it is plugged into is not damaged or a switched outlet.

Power issue, clicking noise, turns off


The clicking is the power on relay closing and opening. This happens because the TV has several built in safety systems that will detect and over voltage and over current load situation.The power supply starts up for an instant, senses and overload of either or both kinds and then the safety switches trigger a cutoff. When this happens the power supply will not start up again because another circuit called a latch keeps it disabled. By unplugging the AC cord and trying to start it again releases the latch until the failure triggers it again.
On these TVs the power supply is rarely the cause of the shutdown. Something further down inside the TV has failed. Replacing just the power supply will not fix the problem. The most common reason there would be an overload would be in the high voltage circuit that lights up the 3 CRTs, next would be the coils around the CRTs that bend the beams to make the picture. This is normal circuit aging and wearing out. Unless you are very skilled with trouble shooting TVs I would recommend having a service center look at it. An authorized JVC shop would be your best choice because they will have access to the manuals and bulletins and have probably had other similar JVC units thru their shops.
