Question about Televison & Video

Power comes on and shuts right back off. Plugged into a surge protector. Problem showed up after some electrical work was done and power went on and off throughout the whole house. DVD player and Wii player seem fine.

    This is what we were afraid of and already have a repair man scheduled. They always give an estimate and ask whether we want to fix it or not. Great expert advice! Thanks!

OK well what has happened i suspect, is that your set has been "Spiked" from a power disturbance, and this has damaged either the PSU, or an internal high voltage component, or both, and now, the Protection Circuitry in the SMPS unit, is "Sensing" a potential "Catastrophic fault", that may cause a fire an explosion or both, and accordingly the set MUST be shut down, so the protection circuitry does exactly that.
Your best bet, is to contact a local or head office of the TV's manufacturer, and ask them for a referral to an authorised servicing center. When contact is made with them, ask for a "Quote" for the repair, before allowing any repair work to be undertaken. This then at least will give you an idea as to costings and you can then make an informed decision as to repair or replace, as often these days i find in my shop anyway, many repairs can be very expensive, and often it would be better putting any monies that would have been spent on repair towards a NEW unit with a warranty.

After power surge panasonic hdtv projection tv model # PT-53WX42F wont come on red light flashes


Bobbie, It dose not sound like surge protector was real effective, the TV will have to come apart to diagnose what has all blown, capacitors, boards etc. Google search can help show how it is done.
Enter all your TV's info, will not power on repair.

I have a motororola model MBP8 PU babby montior quick working after power went out they turn on but but don't work


Is it plugged into a surge protector? When the power comes back on to a lot of residents at the same time, a power voltage spike occurs that can damage electronics. All items that have any electronic circuits, need to be protected by a surge protector. Surge protectors do not protect against lightning strikes.

Monitor is erratic in operation - Power supply issue. Sooner or later the anomaly will become permanent and it will not power on. Just be ready for the eventuality.

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!

My desktop dont come on


1) Check THE receptacle in the surge protector the computer is plugged into.

I have found more than once that One bad receptacle in the surge protector is bad.

"Hmmm, surge protector power on light is lit." "Monitor has power, amp for the speakers has power, and the router has power."
All plugged in to the same surge protector.

Tried a table lamp into the receptacle the computer was plugged into, Nothing.
Replace surge protector.

2) Bypass the Soft Power On of the Power Supply, and see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.

If you bypass the Soft Power On of the Power Supply, and the Power Supply comes on, the problem is a bad Power On switch.

If you bypass the Soft Power On of the Power Supply, and the Power Supply does Not come on, the problem is the Power Supply.

If you wish to know how to perform this simple test, just state so in a Comment.

Storm last night, now Wii won't power up


Unplug everything! There is a "breaker" in the power supply and it may need to be reset. Just unplug all cables from the TV and outlets. Let it sit for a couple hours then plug everything back in and it should work fine. If not then the power supply has shorted out due to a strong power surge. You can claim it under your home owners insurance or call Nintendo and try to get it replaced. Thanks! Good luck and happy gaming!!

Unplug the tv press power on and plug it back in.
