Flashing stand by light and tv does not respond to any swithc or remote


Hi.

If after the fault the TV went in standby and does not wake up, staying there with led flashing, then the TV has on protect mode after detecting a fault.
When this happens higher voltages are shut down to prevent further damage. Only the +5V line will stay on to keep the TV in standby.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Wont turn on hear a faint click sound


The faint click sound is the protection circuit that keeps turning off the TV. This happens when an internal fault is detected. Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Power switch wont turn on,keeps clicking


The fault is not a relay, the clicking sound is just the protection circuit that prevents the TV from starting because a fault had been detected.

The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

Standby light keeps blinking. tv wont turn on


If the TV goes off completely, then is usually a faulty power board.

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Guide plus on my rca p52937 tv


You are right, the Guide Plus is transmitted to your tv over the air. If you have a cable company supplying your programs, your Guide Plus will not receive a signal to set up. You will need to get a two-way splitter. It has two connections on one side and one on the other. The side that has one connection goes to your tv. The side that has two connections will connect to your cable supplier and the other to a rabbit ear or outside antenna. Then the tv has to be off over night to restore your Guide Plus.

I am on satalite and i have a 60inch philips televition 2004 modle and the power comes on but there isnt a sound or picture.what might be the problem?and is there a fuse andor a reset button?could it be...


Hi,

The easiest test to determine which is defective (TV or receiver) is to replace the receiver temporarily with another audio/video source such as a DVD player, even an old VCR or a video camera. This is assuming that the sat receiver is connected to the TV using yellow, red & white RCA connectors. Additionally, some models/versions of these TVs show a blinking light if and when it has detected an internal fault.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
