Tv will not turn on

My power went out for a few hours, and now my tv will not turn back on, everything else plugged into my surge protector suround sound, cable box, dvd player ect. was not affected just the tv. As far as i know nothing was hit by lightening. I'm just wondering if maybe the tv has a reset switch or something. I've tried unplugging it for several minutes.

Today my power went out for a split second and came back on I turn my TV back on it makes a high pitched whining noise and the screen wont turn on. Cant add picture but model number is MW30G71.


unplug your tv. let it sit for a good bit. 1/2 hour did your power just go out or did you have a power surge then no power. surges cause the grid to go down for a second too and that causes problems too. surge protectors are good for everything. also are you on cable? if so have the cable company check they're filters into the house may be an issue but check the tv after a half hour unplgged and then plug in and turn on normally? sometimes it needs a reset time period before the fuses inside will reset themselves.

I have a Mitsubishi projection model WS-B55 that is plugged into a surge protector. The power went off for about an hour or an hour and a half this morning, and the power light is flashing. I called...


First, to answer your last question, not all power outages and subsequent surges are created equally nor are all surge protectors. Also, after a power outage where the subsequent surge is so strong that it got past your surge protector and knocks out your TV and it's never done that before... REPLACE YOUR SURGE PROTECTOR.
However, that being said, in my experience it is unlikely that the TV is going to require a technician. Understand that the person that you spoke with in tech Support is not a technician and is reading off of a list of troubleshooting pages that are more extensive then what's in the manual. What the technician is probably not aware of is that your TV, like most home electronics, has a safety failsafe that requires the device to be separated from power completely before doing a system reset
First, after pressing the button it's supposed to flash for about a minute anyway but I'm assuming that after it's done pressing that the TV is still not firing up.
Unplug the TV, let it sit for an hour, plug it back in (to the wall, not the suspect surge protector). If the light is still flashing, press the reset button again and wait for it to stop flashing and attempt to turn it on again. If it doesn't work, unplug the TV, follow the same steps however, let it sit for 24 hours before plugging it back in. That length of time is not common but some sets do require it.
If none of this works, then I would say that it's time to call a technician.

No power either!!


Unplug the surge protector and plug the tv in directly to an outlet that you know is working, plug something else in first to be sure.

you may find that your surge protector is shot. if it is toss it and get a new one.

Storm last night, now Wii won't power up


Unplug everything! There is a "breaker" in the power supply and it may need to be reset. Just unplug all cables from the TV and outlets. Let it sit for a couple hours then plug everything back in and it should work fine. If not then the power supply has shorted out due to a strong power surge. You can claim it under your home owners insurance or call Nintendo and try to get it replaced. Thanks! Good luck and happy gaming!!
