If the red light flashes at plug in you likely have a main board that is bad. If you have to press the power button before the red light flashes you likely have a bad bad supply board. This will need to be diagnosed by a technician to be sure of the problem.

Please Help!!! Logic 32' LED. L32HE23. STUCK IN STANDBY MODE???

Assume you have lost remote. Look on reverse of both sides to see the manual operation buttons. These will operate all the functions of the normal tv operation, and should be able to select different source feeds, dvd ect. If you still have remote try unpluging tv, wait for a few minutes then plug back in. Hope this helps.

My viore tv shut off by it self.

Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry.
If problem persists, I suggest it is better to refer it to a qualified service
technician, since the back cover has to be opened for investigation/rectification.

I have a 50" Philips

Most likely the power supply capacitors are going bad.
Opening the TV and replacing any swollen caps may solve your issue.

I have a Viore RPT50V24DX/SMS TV, That just turns off after a few minutes. When it's on it's nearly perfect, but then it quits. The cooling fan is running, and there's not much dust inside. Any Ideas?

Is the power led flashing an error code? How old is it? Many sets have problems after a yr or two with poor quality caps....a few minutes on should not be an overheating issue. Look for caps that are swollen or the tops are bubbled up....

Sorry but you are out of luck, the unit will need repair. It could come back to life in any moment but most often is related to this:

I have a Philips Plasma tv 42pf5321d/37 with sound but no picture

Thats the great sound of Exploding capacitors on either the power supply board. or another one in there. Now the set is in fault protection. It tried to warn you with the RED blinking LED that there was something amiss by shutting itself down. When you unplugged you reset the error and allowed it to do it again.

Best Regards and Smper Fi

LG LCD TV Standby Light Flashing Red Continuously

I have had this same problem twice in the past 3 months. So far both times I've been able to get it back after a week or two. I'm not sure what works, but unplugging and detaching the antenna and cable and waiting a few days seems to be the key. In both instances, I unplugged it for a few days then plugged it in for a few days and repeated the processes until I eventually got the steady red led. Both times prior to the red led the led would flash red then green and make a clickiing noise for several hours before I was able to get it working again.
