TV won't turn on

I unplugged my TV and left it unplugged for a week while out of town. When I plugged it back into the outlet no lights on the front nothing and the TV won't power up. I have my DVD recorder, Stereo, Sat box all plugged into the same outlet, everything except the TV powers up. Any ideas ?

When I try to turn the tv on, the green light flashes and eventually goes back to red. A very faint picture came across the tv a few times but didn't stay. The tv is only 3.5 years old.

Tv will not power up



Press the TV button or ON/OFF button while remote is in TV mode and there's a source of power to the outlet or outlet strip.

Make sure the TV is plugged in.

You might have tried to turn on the TV during the lamp cool-down. Wait a few moments and the picture will appear.

Has the power light on the front of the TV been blinking for one minute? If so, the lamp may be dead. Refer to the Power indicator
is blinking or flashing section below for more information.

When you first plug your TV into an outlet, the Power indicator on the front panel will light and blink for approximately 30 seconds
and then go off during the initialization of the TV. This happens only when the TV is unplugged and plugged back in. The TV can
only be turned on after the Power indicator goes off.

Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is "live" by plugging in something else, such as a lamp.

Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the
remote control solutions on page 53.

Multiple TV Setup might be set to the wrong option. Press MENU/OK on the front panel. Select Setup Options, then Advanced
Options, then Multiple TV Setup. Choose TV (default).

52" RCA Scenum froze and would not turn off. I unplugged it and then plugged it back in. All the lights are on in the front of the tv but it will not turn on.


The small signal board is the most likliest cause of that issue which is a very famous symptom for the ITC222 and ITC222A chassis RCA models. You can usually get the small signal board from www.tvrepairworld.com several versions were used so they can assist with identifying which version ssb your model requires.

Tv won't turn on


Have a shop look at it, there is a power relay that either is causing this or something right around it is, seen this about five times over the last ten years in Hitachi sets. I had one customer who had it connected to a wall switch and from time to time had to unpower it several times but once on it was fine.....

** TV won't turn on.** No picture or sound. Please Help !


If the red light won't come on it is not getting power.First,try plugging it in to a different outlet,or unplug one of the gadgets you know is working and plug the tv in there.You are simply switching.If you know that there is power coming from the outlet and it still won't come on then you'll have to check the cord;don't go much farther than that without expert help.

1 have a 6 year-old Mitsubishi model WS-48511 series 1080 rear projection TV that now won't turn on. A few days ago we shut the TV off, and now when i plug it in the blinking green power light...


This is called the blinking green light of death-----only one of two things can cause this problem.

First: remove front speaker grill (IT PULLS OFF) AND remove inspection plate behind it; look for the two bundles of wires coming down and to the right from the front keyboard of the set.

Unplug both plugs you find (different and marked so you cannot mix them up-----the idea is to take the front keyboard out of circuit-----set will still function with remote as receiver is behind front screen)

Try (after 70 seconds) to turn on with remote

If it comes on---defective reset button on front keyboard----use set only with remote or remove and remove actual reset switch---it is located behind and part of frame for screen----entire front screen would have to be removed to get at it.

Second: if disconnection of the front keyboard does not help, the DM unit is bad.

As you look from back of set it is large metal box at extreme left side.

The blinking light is the unit trying to "Boot" up-----these have a problem where caps and a few other parts in that unit fail-----kits on the net are available----Mitsubishi no longer sells or services these units but PTS Electronics does repair them.


Let me know if you have questions and try disconnection of the front keyboard FIRST.

The green light on front of tv keeps flashing and tv wont turn on


Howdy,

The green light blinking indicates your TV has a problem. The problem is that each Brand of TV has different codes and with out the Brand and Model number, I can not help you at this time.

Please, count blinking sequence. Model number will be on back of TV.

Recap : Provide Model Number, Brand and Count Blinks.

First though; unplug TV from power source for 3-5 minutes then plug TV & box back into a/c outlet.

Good Luck, BIG IRISH.
