WIll not power up

When power button is pressed you hear a clik but the light will not go on nor will the TV. Sounds like the surge protector. Unplugged the unit for 24hrs and TV went on but this no longer fixes the problem Thanks much

    I was watching the tv and it popped and went off. I unplugged it like the manual said for 30 seconds, plugged it in heard a click pushed the power button the red light came on for 1 second if that - then went off. Then nothing. Power supply or fuse or what?

The click you hear is probably from a relay that supplies power to the rest of the set.
If it responds to the remote in the same way, there is a power supply problem beyond help here.
Unplugging the set would allow all of the supply to cool down, temporarily alleviating the problem.

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.

Samsung HLN617w won't turn on


How old is the surge protector you used? Because they only last for so long and can absorb so many surges. I hate to say it but it sounds like your TV sustained a power surge.

I have a Mitsubishi projection model WS-B55 that is plugged into a surge protector. The power went off for about an hour or an hour and a half this morning, and the power light is flashing. I called...


First, to answer your last question, not all power outages and subsequent surges are created equally nor are all surge protectors. Also, after a power outage where the subsequent surge is so strong that it got past your surge protector and knocks out your TV and it's never done that before... REPLACE YOUR SURGE PROTECTOR.
However, that being said, in my experience it is unlikely that the TV is going to require a technician. Understand that the person that you spoke with in tech Support is not a technician and is reading off of a list of troubleshooting pages that are more extensive then what's in the manual. What the technician is probably not aware of is that your TV, like most home electronics, has a safety failsafe that requires the device to be separated from power completely before doing a system reset
First, after pressing the button it's supposed to flash for about a minute anyway but I'm assuming that after it's done pressing that the TV is still not firing up.
Unplug the TV, let it sit for an hour, plug it back in (to the wall, not the suspect surge protector). If the light is still flashing, press the reset button again and wait for it to stop flashing and attempt to turn it on again. If it doesn't work, unplug the TV, follow the same steps however, let it sit for 24 hours before plugging it back in. That length of time is not common but some sets do require it.
If none of this works, then I would say that it's time to call a technician.

Cannot turn on tv


it sounds like the power surge got past the surge protector and damaged one of the boards in the back of the tv. it may or may not be worth fixing depending on what you want to spend on it

No power


Unplug the tv press power on and plug it back in.
some of these units have a reset clearly marked on the back.
connect direct to wall as the surge protector may now have issue.

The DM board is the one with the digital connectors on the back panel. If you already have it appart, you may as well check the caps on all of the boards. The caps that go bad are typically Jamicon brand caps in 1000 uF and 330 uF values. There are also a couple of 3300 uF caps in the PS that cause problems.

I have the same problem with mine. i,m pretty sure that it is the built in surge protector is bad. Try unplugging the tv for 30 seconds then plug it back in and turn it on. If your surge protector has not completely gone bad this might work a few times. mine won't turn on at all anymore.

My samsung model- HCN4226W T.V will not turn on


You should always have all expensive electronics on a surge protector. It sounds like for this set the power regulators blown out as I know this set very well and seen it a hundred times!! its a power regulator IC that cant handle a power surge at all. and if thats your only problem, it shouldnt cost more then 175.00 to 250.00 to repair. Now with a surge though there could be other problems as well but from what you stated Im guessing alls ok except what i stated. Now Please do not attempt to repair yoursels, as these sets have alot of Hi voltage inside them even when they are unplugged.. Good Luck
