There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for 5 mins, then try.

If you aren't tech savvy, this unit needs to go in for repair.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

I havea 46" sanyo model dp46841 lcd tv but the tv wont respond to the oem remote or universal remotes ?


Sounds like the infra-red sensor inside it is either damaged or it do not get proper voltage to work. Check it. If it get proper voltage/s and still not receive any infra-red signal from the remote control, replace it. The part in discussion will look somewhat like this.

25758228-54zq5khwu0nuxgxnhh2yrt4a-2-2.jpg Prior the replace this component, make sure that the remote control you're using works properly, and do emits infrared light rays, during each button presses on it. Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience.

Yes, the entire main board used to be (you would have to ask Philips) available but we gave up (where I work) ordering them as too many were damaged or destroyed in shipping.

Board level repair:

check fuse
check power supply voltages
check for short to ground at horz. output transitor

I have a 32 in insignia and a universal remote was used to try and turn channel..it turned the channel once and now its frozen on that channel even the tv remote wont work and the manual buttons on the tv...


Turn your TV off and unplug it for several minutes. Remove the batteries from any remote controls that you use for the TV, press all of their buttons, and install fresh batteries. Reset the TV to factory defaults. The universal remote control should not have caused any damage to the TV. If the problem persists, we recommend that you seek service by calling 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada.

The remote will not operate the tv but will operate one in another room.The tv works fine manually operated.The remote just stopped working. Could the receiver in the tv be bad?The unit is a little older...


are you on sattilite or cable, and is this the remote you're using? I had this prob once. Somehow the 2 remotes got swapped...the tv that worked probably belongs to the remote that worked...try each of the remotes on each tv.

Cant change channels


Your in the video mode so you have to change the input. On the original remote, its the button left of the power button. A universal may not work for this. If you need the original remote, Its available at http://www.remotes.com Good Luck
