TV stopped working.

It won't turn on, at all. Went to turn it on one day, and nothing. The light isn't even on, saying it's in standby mode. Please help!

After you remove the back cover inspect the power supply board for swollen or bulging capacitors. Pull and check any capacitors that you suspect to be swollen. Next, look for a sticker in the back side of the TV set. Use the values you find on the sticker to calibrate the voltages on the power supply board.

I have a Sony Bravia LCD tv an it won't turn on at all the standby light is not even there I've tried turning on an off and leaving unplugged for an hour still nothing.? Help,

You either have a problem with your power supply board or main board. I would start with having the power supply fuse checked as well as the power supply board!

Emerson 32 inch won't come out of standby mode

It clearly has a problem not allowing it to come on---the set has a warranty---take it back and either get an exchange---Most major stores will exchange in first 30 days for any reason---if they give you the "it has to go for repair," demand a refund on the spot.

Frankly Emerson is not a very good quality brand and parts and support are nearly zero.

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...


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:

Hi ya
I had the same problem just today with my Goodmans GTVL26W8HD TV I was at it all day trying to get it to turn on. It was like it was stuck in stand by mode, Until my partner opened it up and unplugged the control panel at the top of the TV ( The manual control buttons ) now it works via the remote control . He does stress however thats its extreamly dangeroue to mess with TV;s as the electrical current in a TV even when unplugged can Kill , So if you don't know what your doing leave well alone and get someone who does know what they are doing to do it for you
Good Luck :-)
