Is this tv/dvd combo one you just picked up or one that you already had that was working fine and now its not. The reason I ask is that how the dvd portion of it was or was not working well before the current problem would help to identify the problem better. However, yes the tv can be repaired. The question is because of the size whether or not it is economically feasible. That question really depends on what your local tv repair shops charge you. In my area that problem would be at least $45 - $65. Certainly, it can be fixed. With my experience with that problem in tv/dvd combos including some I have owned, the problem could be as easy as a mechanical problem with the dvd portion such as a or sensor that detects whether the dvd door is open or closed and a disc present or it could be just a dirty dusty mainboard and power supply that needs to be cleaned. Dust and lint accumulation on the components inside that tv can cause all sorts of problem because they tend to collect small static charges and eventually over time renders a critical component on the mainboard such as a relay that cycles the power on and off to fail. Since you do get the initial logo and blue screen I would say your power supply is good. But since I cannot see inside your tv this is the best answer I can give you for now. Good luck and God bless you.

I have a blue light and an orange but my tv will not come on


If you are referring to an R15 (the big box in the picture with your post), there should be 3 blue lights on the front of the DVR: one to the far left (power), a big circle in the middle, and one on the right indicating the resolution the DVR is currently trying to send to the TV. The orange light indicates that something is being recorded; either a show or something from DTV like channel listings. The orange light has nothing to do with your TV but may indicate that the DVR is downloading setup information.

As for turning your TV on, when you first get DTV, the DVR remote does not know how to talk to your TV set, only the DVR, so you have to teach the remote to talk to your TV. To do that, turn your TV on with the remote that came with it (or the on/off switch on the TV if you're a dinosaur like me) and change the TV input to whatever input the DVR is attached to - usually HDMI or Component. If you see something (a TV show, a guide, a DirecTV logo, etc.) you're in the right place. Now hit the Menu button on the DTV remote and you'll see a menu on the left that includes "Setup". Use the arrow buttons on the DTV remote to move to Setup, press Select, and then select Program Remote. Follow those instructions carefully, step by step, and you should be all set. (Caveat: I am working from memory so the exact wording might not match and I might have missed a menu level. If so, I apologize.)

The cord can be tested to see if voltage is reaching inside the set, if you get any power or other light on front the cord is ok.

Power problem "New TV"


If totally dead (both wall current and voltage from RV---someone has to open it to see if fuse/s bad---it will have one for wall voltage (AC) and another for RV voltage (DC) and sometimes also a third in the 12 volt lighter plug if using one.

Another possible reason would be the set has been damaged---the circuit board may have been damaged/cracked and needs repair.

Remove back, reseat all connectors. It is a mechanical interrupt to the relay board causing the problem.
