Question about Sharp 36J-S400 36" TV

1 Answer

ONLY BLACK SCREEN NO CABLE OR AIR SIGNAL

The TV was on and while resetting a circuit breaker, I turned off the power to the TV and turned it back on. After that, the TV is only showing a black screen. We see all the menu information but it wont select a cable channel or show any static when on the Air function. It worked fine up to the power on and off situation. What do you think?

    Here was the solution to the problem. I just unplugged the TV and let it sit for about 3-5 minutes. When I replugged it in, the TV was back in action and working fine... Whewww that was too easy.

Try going into the menu and doing a reprogramming or auto search for channels.

I have a ceiling fan with a remote. Remote isn't working and neither is the pull chain...? How do I reset it?


Besides checking if there is a wall power switch, I suggest you check for a circuit breaker that needs to be flipped back on. My circuit breaker is in my basement, and shows an orange plastic tab to show it blew off.

My oven won't heat up after blowing a circuit breaker


Check to see if power is at the wall outlet, if not unplug the oven or if it's hardwired disconnect the wiring, then reset the circuit breaker, if it resets, do not plug the oven back in, immediately turn the circuit breaker back off and check for a blown hearing element probably a upper.

My dynex tv wont turn on! the strom knocked out our power, now the power is back on the tv wont turn on from remote or tv power button.


Lightning is a weird beast, and can do strange things to a TV. Sounds like the set took a hit. If there is a fuse then check it on a volt-ohm meter for continuity while it is out of the circuit, and if it is an open circuit, replace it. If there is a circuit breaker, then reset it. If these don't work, look for obvious scorching on the circuit board (assuming you know how to avoid electricution, otherwise do not touch). Lightening can literally jump around on a circuit board, so there is no way to know what part of the set was effected by the strike - the lightening will not always burn out the first circuit it touches, but will burn out something further into the circuit. The most obvious place to look is around the transformer and rectifier circuits. If a capacitor was hit, it may be swolen or discolored; resistors will scorch, and the worst thing is that transistors and IC's often show no damage - in fact, any part might be burned out and not show visible signs. If nothing is obvious (like scorch marks) and the fusing is intact, there are too many possibilities to begin listing them all. The fact that it won't turn on at all sounds like it is probably a power circuit, but, not necessarily. FYI turning a set off during a lightning storm does not protect it, you have to unplug the AC power cord and the line that feeds the signal into the set. Even circuit protection devices (lightning arrestors) may not protect against a close strike. Maybe the techs at Best Buy can supply more suggestions (Dynex is their brand).

No power


Hi,

If your television has no power, try the following:


1. Check the power cord for breaks, tears, or exposed wires .
2. Check to be sure that the power cable is fully inserted in the outlet and that the outlet is working.
3. Go to your fuse box or circuit breaker box and check the fuse or circuit breaker of the circuit your TV is plugged into. Replace the fuse or reset the breaker if necessary.
4. Replace the batteries in the remote control, and then try turning on the TV using the remote.
5. Unplug the TV, wait five minutes, plug the TV back in, and then try turning on the TV.

If the recommendations above do not resolve your problem, most likely the power supply in your TV has failed and your television needs service.


Thank you !!

How do I reset a Eaton breaker with a tester on it?


This is a GFI (Ground Circuit Interrupter) Breaker. So you need to turn off the circuit breaker first. Then you need to reset the GFI (yellow button) by pressing in the button. And then turning the breaker back on. Now, with some GFI's, you need power on to reset them. So if this is the case, reset the circuit breaker by turning it off and then back on. Then press the yellow button in, and it should hold. Then you should have power restored. I hope this works for you. If not, feel free to contact me again. Good Luck!

20amp breaker tripped unexpectly tonight. tried resetting at panel but won't click all the way over and little red indicator also on the breaker


Hello, In order to reset circuit breakers that have tripped under load, you must first flip the breaker all the way OFF, before you can then turn the breaker back ON. This should reset the breaker to turn the power back on to the circuit supplied by this breaker.

The red indicator is just there to make it easier to find the tripped breaker. Typically, the red indicator flag is a special feature of Square D QD breakers and panels.

If the breaker immediately trips again and doesn't stay on, then the device it is providing power to, still has a fault and it needs to be looked at to determine what is causing the fault and the tripping of the breaker.

Be sure to turn the breaker OFF if you are going to check the device for potential problems.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I had the same problem with the Stiebel Eltron Tempura 24. Right side unit worked (with blinking LED), but the display and left side (including LED) did not work.

This is CRITICAL. Do not take the cover off unless you have turned off circuit breakers at the circuit breaker panel AND tested that there is no power. There is a lot of voltage/ampreage here and it could be life threatening if you get shocked. Call an electrician (or a plumber) if you don't know what you are doing.

My problem was solved by resetting the safety thermal cutout switch on top of the non working unit (red single press thermistor). See this manual http://www.stiebel-eltron-usa.com/pdf/install_tempra.pdf page 8.

Totally dead. Vizio GV42L


If the circuit breaker was tripped, more likely the fuse inside the TV power supply might also be blown. If that is the case there might be a short circuit in the power supply components, more likely on a diode or transistor/mosfet.
Contact these website to see if they have the parts for your plasma.
Good Luck.

Audiovox AVT2540 won't turn on


Hi,

The only possible check that could be done without removing/opening the Audiovox TV would be to check for the presence/absence of supply power/voltage depending on how the TV is powered (12VDC or 120 VAC). Normally, there would be an fuse and/or circuit breakers.for the RV's entertainment system including the TV.
The 120-volt circuit breakers and 12-volt fuses are located in the same compartment. These devices interrupt the power if the circuit is overloaded.The 120-volt circuit breakers include a 30 amp main breaker and several smaller breakers for individual circuits. If a circuit breaker is tripped, look for an overload on the circuit, then reset it by turning the breaker OFF and then turning it ON. Do not try to reset a breaker the second time without locating the overload problem. The 12-volt fuses protect individual circuits. If the circuit is overloaded, it will blow the fuse and the fuse must be replaced. Check the circuit for an overload and replace the fuse with the same type or amperage rating.

If the above checks out, then problem is internal to the unit and would require removal from its current position.

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.
