Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

Thompson 32WF401. The TV will no longer turn on. When in standby the red light is on. When you push a channel button on the remote to switch the TV on the light changes to amber for a second, the TV clicks and then the light returns to red. The red light then does three flashes followed by five flashes (I assume some kind of fault code). The flashes repeat 3 and 5 several times. Please help.

SOURCE: tv won't turn on. power indicator light comes on then goes off after about three seconds, then retries twice more then locks out.

That is what these sets will try to do if the power supply detects a short. The set will try three times to come on then shut down again till you pull the plug or press the power again. It is not really a diagnostic code. Most likly your problem is the horizontal output transistor and or the flyback transformer. Very common problem for this set. good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.

SOURCE: Pioneer SD-532HD5 Projection Screen TV won't turn back on.

The problem is the power supply components over heating. The power supply is on the back side right hand. supply extra cooling via a fan and it will stop shutting down. This is just a cheap and simple fix that wil tie you over for a while. cheers mates.

I have lost the remote control now the tv will not turn on


The remote should not have any effect whether the T.V. turns on or off.
Have you tried to press the power button so that the standby light is on? On most Tv's the light should be red. Once the standby light is on press the button on the TV to change the channel, either the + or - button. This should switch the tv on.

What does standby mean? my tv will not come on but the red standby light is on. How can i fix my tv.My tv is an sony 40" trinitron wega brand.


Hi,
If standby red light is solid then press power or channel button on remote of tv itself to turn it ON.
And if red light is blinking/ flashing then it is an indication that tv got problem and tech visit is needed to sort out problem.
Thanks.

3. Hold down select and the red button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.

4. Press tv on your Sky remote control again.

The TV worked fine on Sunday evening, turned it off the normal way when went to bed. Came down to turn on in the morning and only the red light comes on indicating standby mode. I have unplugged...


Hello,

There seem to be a problem that is why the television is not coming up and stays stuck on standby mode.

First try to turn on the television using the remote of the television and ensure that the battery of the remote is properly working, you can as well try to push the channel button on the television if the remote does not work.

If it does not come up both by using the remote and pushing the channel button, then it means it is a hardware problem, and that is from inside the unit of the television. Since the standby light comes up, it simply means power is reaching the main panel of the television.

This mainly used to be caused by a faulty or bad capacitor on either the main panel or the power panel of the television.

To check and fix, follow the steps below:
