    TV WAS WORKING OKAY WHEN SUDDENLY A LOUD ALARM-TYPE BUZZING CAME FROM IT. IT DID NOT RESPOND TO REMOTE OR ON/OFF SWITCH, SO I UNPLUGGED IT. WHEN I PLUGGED THE TV BACK IN 12 HOURS LATER, THE BLUE LIGHT CAME ON FOR THE DVD PLAYER, BUT THERE WAS NOTHING BUT A BLACK SCREEN. NO PICTURE. NO SOUND.



    READING THE PRODUCT REVIEWS SURE DOESN'T GIVE ME A WARM FUZZY FEELING.

I called the manufacturer and they said I could send it back to be repaired or replaced. It costs $45 if its after 120 days on the receipt (they extended it another 30 days) or no cost if within the 90 (120) day period. He said there is a 1 yr warrenty on the fixed or replaced on as well. Here's the phone number 1-888-252-6252! I hope this helps someone!

(I got this number after calling target's manufacturer hotline that they give u in the store when they tell you they wont take it back)

SOURCE: TV will not come on

Hope it not serious. Do a hard reset and try again. You can do the reset by unplugging the power cord for a couple of hours; then power it up again.
If the reset does not solve the problem then it is serious! The blinking light means the set has gone into protection mode. This is when the system has detected a short or something that is drawing excessive current. The protection system shuts down the main power supply in order to prevent further damage to the set.
In the majority of cases the blinking light means the main power supply has gone bad, but it could also mean other things as well.
Repair is usually on the expensive side, unfortunately. You will need to find someone who can go inside the set, take some measurements in the power supply and track down the ailing part of the set.
Hope that helps........

Had a power surge into the house- the tv was not on a surge protector and i am wondering if the tv is blown out- or is there a fuse possibly that blows at a power surge?


hello kath... if the tv won't come on now the power surge fried internal fuse and possibly more. The least expensive way to get this repair is to physically take the tv to the repair shop. If they have to make house calls, the cost goes up significantly. Joe

Because of a power surge, i think i fried my tv, are there any safety procautions inside that might protect the tv, such as fuses, or would it just ruin the tv?


there are fuses and MOV's to protect for surges.
mov is metal oxide varistor, a resistor that shorts out when the voltage rating is exceeded causing the fuse to bluw.
always right after the fuse on the circuit board on the powersupply board

We had bad weather lights went out ..had tv plugged into a power surge plug ...now that i have power back tv wont come on


Some will say a surge protector will save electronics. I can tell you they may not help at all. A power surge is extremely fast and can over ride the surge protector. If you think you can repair this TV, I would certainly remove the back cover and inspect. Occasionally the only problem for repair is to replace the main fuse. Remember, this happens rarely. Most cases after a surge the TV will need to be inspected by a TV tech. Almost anything, in a power surge will damage the TV. There is no certain area that will not be damaged, expect it any where. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Tv will not power up when turned on after a power surge occurred.


Prayfully the fuse inside the tv took a little shock and broke ...if not that would leave the transformer or the board took a surge also but this would also depend on a little more details...

was the power surge damaged?
was tv plug damaged?
does the power surge still work (if it wasn't damage)
and not all power surges are power surges unless it specified of purchase most are like power surges but are only close to and a extended extention cord updated..

if the power surge is damaged or even still works then go have the fuse check and any further damage will also show up on the board it will have a burned part...
