    How do I reset my 32" EMERSON LCD TV If it will only stay on for 2 seconds or so?

  • ylharris Aug 16, 2008

    And I paid $10.00 for that smart assed answer, I want my money back.

  • ylharris Aug 16, 2008

    The solution that was offered corresponds with what Emerson's custmer service tech suggested. With this information I can now speak with a little knowledge with the repairmen that I am taking the unit to.

    Thanks again

Hello,
You must look for its sleep up timer that might have been changed by some one.. By restoring its setting you can get out of this problem..This will be a better choice for you or if you wanna reset it then leave it unplugged for 4 hrs and then plug it back but according to me this wont help you in this case..So try to change the timer value using the manual of the tv if your not sure how to do it and finally if all this fails then The fault might be the inverter that drives the backlight. There are 8 stages in it,if one of them was faulty, the screen will try to start up, but if the inverter chip sensed something was wrong and shut the TV down. In few case it might need a new inverter transformer which doesnt cost a lot, but you can sometimes get reconditioned inverters for a reasonable amount...Thank you..

Please post back how things turned on for further assistance...

Kind Regards!!...

    change the timer settings. it is set that way so it is happening.

  • tech expert12 Aug 15, 2008

    its definately the sleep timer.for sure.but probably you cannot adjust the timer in 2sec time.it would be set by mistake by someone.so if under warranty call the company person it will take not more then 10 minites for him to set the timer off.and if not under warranty you will be charged not more than service charge.

    he will have to set the timer manually.by opening the tv unit.

    the tv is absolutely perfect,.

    pls rate the solution if helped by it to know your problem. thanks.

Hi. i believe this to be either of these three problems.
1. Power: it could be that there is a problem with the power electronic element(s). the solution is to go see an engineer.
2. Screen: if the television uses LCD display, it could be a problem with the liquid in it. Solution is to see an engineer.
3. Sleep mode: the TV could be in sleep mode which makes the screen go blank until removed from sleep mode. Solution is to read the TV's users manual to see how to wake a sleeping TV. Get back.

Tv switches off after 5 mins


There might be three or more reasons for this:
1) The sleep timer may be on causing the TV to turn off after a preset time.
2) If sleep timer is on and no signal from the remote is received for a preset time (Samsung: 15 minutes) the tv will turn itself off.
3) The TV may have been turned on automaticaly with "On Timer". If so, and no signal is received for a preset time (Samsung: 3 hours) the tv will turn itself off.
4) A fan is not working or a vent is blocked causing the TV to overheat and turn off.
For 1) thru 3), go to the "setup" menu and make sure "sleep timer" and "On Timer" are turned off.

Shuts off after about 1 hr and then we have to power off


The TV might be on sleep mode, so it will stay on for an hour, then turn off again. You'll need to turn it off through the menu

RCA HDTV model#HD52W59. When I turn the power on it stays on for a few seconds and then goes off by itself.


TV turns off unexpectedly
• Sleep timer may have been activated.
• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then turn on again. If this
happens frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high or low.
• Unplug the TV. Wait ten minutes. Then, plug the TV in again.

These have bad inverter boards, the part number is: 1FSA10164 for the MUT cba which includes the inverter board. The boards have about ten plugs and 8 screws after you get the back off.
