Tv powers up but goes directly into stand by mode


An Electronic component has failed. Unless you can repair circuits, take it to a shop or friend who can. Consider cost of replacement. A few hundred will fix an old tv, a couple more and you have a whole new unit.

Panasonic TX-L42S10B has power but won't turn on


ok, this may be a silly question but when you turn it on and it starts flashing red, have you tried pressing the stand-by button on the remote. if a tv has been put on stand-by by the remote, and is then switched off by the set, when the set is turned back on it is still in stand-by mode and you need to press the stand-by button on the remote.
other than that I don't know.

We have a 42 inch Phillips, plasma tv. If we turn it off overnight, it won't trun back on the next day. When we do turn it on it goes right into stand-by mode (the power light goes off and the red light...


Lot of Philips tvs have problems with capacitors drying out in the power supply. They will usually bulge or will require an esr meter to test them. what you can do is simply order a power supply (google) or take your tv to a tv shop to have the problem verified. I am almost 100% sure its the power supply filters, however if you talk to a tv shop and tell them what I have told you, they should give you a good price on the repairs.

DVD Player Won't TUrn


If the unit does not see the door switch (the door where the disks are inserted) it will power off after a few seconds. Under the door there is an adjustment for the door switch. It's about an inch back from the front face of the unit and - this is tricky - it's behind a small plastic cover. If you push with your finger you will feel a soft spot and will see the edges of plastic. The plastic piece is about a quarter inch high and less than an inch long. After removing the plastic cover you'll see the adjustment screw. Loosen the screw a little bit and you'll be able to slide the screw (which is attached to the switch). You won't see the switch, but sliding the screw left or right (it's in an oblong hole) will adjust the switch position. Change the position until the unit powers up and stays on.
