What has most likely happened is that you have a capacitor/capacitors that have failed.

This is a very common occurrence with flat screen tv's and monitors.

This is because the parts that go into the screens aren't always as good of quality as they should be.

Capacitor failure is by far the leading complaint amongst flat screen tv and monitor owners.

I would take the tv to Fry's or BestBuy, have them ive it a good look-over, and get an estimate of costs before having it done.

I say that, because capacitor repairs can sometimes be as much, if not more than the cost of buying a new tv.

It may not, but if you get an estimate, you can then look around and see if any stores have new tv's for around the same price.

If they do, then I would just buy a new one, as then you would have a warranty to back up any repairs.

I hope this helps you out, and good luck!

SOURCE: I have an Emerson HD digital TV model LC195EMX,

The indication of the standby light shows that the sub power circuit is functioning alright. Now on depressing the switch on power if there is no reaction then the main processor is getting an errror message for no switching. If you are getting any click and shut off then there is a power short/ fault in the HT circuit which requires further probe. You can check the main fuses and for dry soldering joints/ loose connectors in the main PCB, if all this is fine, I suggest you get help but ask your technician to give you an insight if the fault is in the control, main power (SMPS) or the HT. I hope this adivce helps. Good day.

SOURCE: My flatscreen won't turn on it keeps going red to standby

Good day!!!!

Commonly that trouble is cause of faulty capacitors on power supply board...

Power supply looks like this:

Please follow this step on how to fix that problem on your own..

  1. Open the back cover of your TV.
  2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
  3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
  4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
  5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter..

Try to watch this video about capacitors and how to replace it...

I hope this solution will be helpful...

Thanks for using fixya...

Have an emerson tv model# CR202EM9. It does not turn on. What might the problem be.

No power at all? No red standby light? Might be fuse on power board. If fuse is ok and no fuse seen, then faulty powerboard. Emerson, westinghouse, sanyo, samsung are known for these problems. Replacing is easy....take back off of tv and trace where power cord plugs in...Usually 4 to 6 screws will unmount board. Plus disconnecting power cord and ribbon cables.

So I try to turn my tv on...power light goes green and then the red standby light comes on. I get nothing. Black screen.

The tv has a high voltage problem, the Emerson sets were well noted for horizontal output transistor issues, this will need a tv technician to resolve the situation.

My emerson tv standby light is on the power light flashes twice

Mine stayed in stanby mode and all I had to do was to switch the plug to a different outlet. The power strip it was on wasn't providing enough power. It worked fine for a month before I had a problem.
