Emerson tv goes off after a few seconds

When I turn my Emerson tv on, it will appear normal. Only a few short seconds later, it will turn off on its own. Does anybody know what the problem could be?

The shutdown is probably caused by the power supply, although it may not be at fault, just trying to prevent a fire.

There may be other circuitry that is failing and drawing excessive current and most supplies are designed to turn off if the current drawn exceeds a certain maximum.

This is not a problem you can solve without technical skills.

What would cause my emerson quiet kool air conditioner 10GC13-L to keep tripping the breaker?


It probably has something shorted to ground or the compressor or motors are stuck causing a high amperage problem. The breaker is probably fine but it also could be weak but normally its the compressor or a component has faulted to the compressor. If the unit immediately trips breaker its probably shorted to ground. If the unit struggles to start and a few seconds pass before it trips then it may be a component fault.

Why does my tv turn off by it's self after a few


Either a power board problem or something in the set is pulling the power voltages down---if under 26 inches it may not be fixable.

I have a LCD Color TV, but when turn on, green


The most common problem is the Power/Backlight Inverter Board. There are 6 mini transformers on the board, one goes bad and the TV will turn itself OFF automatically for " Protection Mode". Replace the whole board or replace the bad mini transformer.

Whole board, BA71F0F01042

My 32 inch emerson powers up and cuts off after a few seconds.


Hi, I own the same TV and had the same problem. It's the #1 plaguing issue with flat panel TVs made by Funai corp. Emerson is made by them. Normally, when this happens, the TV goes into " Protection Mode " because of a failing circuit board.

The most common thing to go out on flat panel TV is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptom. I'm willing to bet you have the same problem like mine. One of six Inverter Transformers when bad on my Power/Backlight Inverter Supply Board. I replaced it and it works fine again. d66cb18.jpg

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.


2. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual at Tvtechcenter.com:
http://www.tvtechcenter.com/xcart/search.php?mode=search&page=1 It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $6. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

http://www.encompassparts.com/products/?LTZ2PC0MS008

3. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.

It being emerson 32" hdtv lcd turns on but immediately turns off


This is Emerson's #1 problem.
The Inverter Transformer on the power supply/backlight inverter board goes bad. It's what powers up the screen for your TV. When the part goes bad, it doesn't have enough juice to power the screen and the TV automatically turns off. You have 5 Inverter Transformer on your board.
You can fix the problem by replacing the whole board or replace the bad Inverter Transformer.
Here's where you can get a new board for a good price:

Tv wont turn on


The sound can be called screaming from the power supply,it senses a short and creates a frequency you can hear,the set has a problem and it needs to be repaired,I will check the horizontal out put transistor for a short,sometimes it goes bad without a reason and sometimes the high voltage transformer is also bad and both have to be replaced but first the transistor only if it goes bad again then you replaced the transformer too.Seek assistance from a servicer if you are not too familiar with tv service,it can be dangerous.
