Question about Sylvania LC320SS8 32 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

TV won't turn on.

The red "stand by" light is on. When I press the power button (either on the tv or on the reomote) the green light flashes (usually twice, sometimes multiple times) and then the red "stand by" light comes back on.
I have tried removing the AC power, even over night, and no change.

Any suggestions?

    I'm having the exact same problem with the same TV. The manufacturer is no help. Even though I have a receipt, they refuse to do any work without the serial number which apparently was on a sticker that is no longer on the tv. When I asked them where else the serial number could be (inside a panel etc..) they said that they didn't know & that it was my tough luck that the serial number sticker is missing.

    I hate this tv, I got it from Kmart less than a year ago, and within 5 or 6 months the tv just starting doing the cut off and on thing, some times it will stay on all night, then maybe for a few hours or mins. One time i went online and got some codes. It worked when i try it with the remote control. I think that the tv and the directv box has cross signals or something like that. Do you have any trouble shooting codes that I can use.?

    Sometimes that works if I can get it on this time I will never cut it off.

    Add another set to the list of "it will no longer turn on". It will turn green for a second, then go back to the red standby. I even unplugged it for a week to no avail...

My Samsung TV won't turn on

Please describe the problem more accurately. Flashing red usually means 'stand-by' state, flashing blue/green - starting up. When (during that) do you have a sound? Are there any 'high voltage' sounds like soft screeching from the screen? Is it LCD or LED?

Panasonic TX-L42S10B has power but won't turn on

ok, this may be a silly question but when you turn it on and it starts flashing red, have you tried pressing the stand-by button on the remote. if a tv has been put on stand-by by the remote, and is then switched off by the set, when the set is turned back on it is still in stand-by mode and you need to press the stand-by button on the remote.
other than that I don't know.

Sony Bravia KDL-55EX500 flashing green and yellow light, an won't turn on. Any suggestions?

you guys are going to love me. lol. i figured it out at least for mine. $ )
1.start by unplugging the tv and everything plugged into it(make sure the only thing plugged into the tv is the power cord).
2. next plug in the usb flash drive with the update or a compatible version of the firmware.

3. now while holding down the up arrow button on the tv remote, plug in the tv and keep holding the up arrow while pressing and holding the power button on the side on the tv until you see the light on the tv go from solid green to solid red and yellow flashing lights. once you see this just sit back and wait a few min for it to force the update and it should turn on when its done.

let me know if this works for you as well or if you need any clarification. also know that step three is a pain to do alone and must be all done within a short period of time preferably at the same time.

Hi, We have a 42" hslc10668phz

generally when you get a constant green light all is ok. these different lights indicate different problems within the tv. so the pattern of lights you mention suggests there is a fault of some kind (is there a troubleshooting section in your manual)? either way it needs to be looked at.

No picture on TV with powerlight on

If you press the power button *on* your TV (rather than using the RC), does the power light still stay on red rather than turn green?
