Power went out while tv & Direct TV was on

After resetting the power breaker, tv needs to be reset. Direct TV said the tv jumped its programming. Channel 3 is what is used for direct tv & is solid blue. Channel 2 and other channels are snowy, wide vertical band and vertical lines trying to show content???

    Yep, When I went back to the tv after researching on-line here, it was working. The DTV rep insisted it was the tv. I told I didn't think so! Thanks for your input/help

The garbage on your unused channels are not important, just artifacts from signals not strong enough to produce a picture.
The 'blue screen' on #3 is what many sets use when they sense they are connected (terminated) to 'something' but not receiving any signal.

If sounds a lot like DTV's receiver took a hit.

If you have a second set you can borrow or drag to the receiver, try it first but I don't think it is your problem unless the cable input on it was zapped.

No sound coming from my Vizio Model #E320VL HDTV. Tried everything I can think of. I have Direct TV and it just stopped working one day. Any advice?

We just had the same problem with our tv, we switched tv's and it still didn't work. We reset our att uverse box, and the sound works. I don't know how direct TV works, but the problem may lie there instead of your TV

We have a Sony KV-35V36 TV. Will watching TV and the power just went off. We get no power all all anymore. How do you ge the the fuse on this TV.

The fuse is inside the chassis and likely soldered. Unplug the TV, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, repeat. Plug it back in and see if that has reset it.
Is the outlet good, or did the power outage trip the breaker?

Power went off and when it returned unit will not progress from the Hello message

Remove the power plug and keep the set un-switched for few hours/overnight. If there is any resetting mentioned in the manual please try and reset the TV using the method described.
Now it is possible that the Tv has hung up after the surge on power after the power cut.
This might have corrupted the operating program and hence it might need a reset.

Can't get power on tv

They do not use circuit breakers only fuses. The fuse is on the power supply board where the cable from the AC box plugs connects to the board. If the fuse doesnt fix it the power supply board will probably have to be replaced, if not one of the other boards may also be damaged.

Can't get power on tv

Is the LED light on? If not then the Power supply may be bad. Try to unplug the TV and then plug back in. There is a fuse near the AC input. Check the fuse If the fuse is OK then the Power supply has gone bad.

Totally dead. Vizio GV42L

If the circuit breaker was tripped, more likely the fuse inside the TV power supply might also be blown. If that is the case there might be a short circuit in the power supply components, more likely on a diode or transistor/mosfet.
Contact these website to see if they have the parts for your plasma.
Good Luck.

Samsung TV

If your model has a reset button it will alway be on the back,
usually near the power, sometimes near the lamp if it is dlp.
plainly marked.
Or just unplug it , press power on . then plug it back in.
