Question about Thomson 24WK25U 24" TV

1 Answer

Thomson and LG TV's difficult to switch on

After a couple of months of use both sets refuse to switch on with remote or manually. If they are unplugged and left for a couple of months they start working again. I have to alternate their use. The sets, when switching on sometimes respond with a quick flash of picture before switching back off. At present neither set will switch on. The only AV used is a Phillips freeview box. Both TV's are around 8 years old and this problem has happened for the past 10 months, soon after we had some electrical work in the house. Could this be the cause?

It most certainly could be the cause of the problem. Most of the time when a TV set comes onm then switches off, its a fault in the power regulator circuit. Regulators can go bad all by them selfs, but most of the time, they fail due to excessive AC voltage, and or ppower surges, such as the oin off action of intermittant power would cause. On sets this old, Im not sure you would want to invest the type of cash to repair. Its onlty a guess but I would say a minimum of 125 to repair them? Its a call only you can make. You should go to this link and read this first. http://www.techlore.com/article/10602/ Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this link.

Onkyo TX-sr605 will not turn on.


did the voltage selector on the back of the unit possibly get moved to wrong setting? You could also try switching it back & forth a few times (unplugged first of course) to see if maybe the switch needs "cleaning"

My LG 42LV4400 has a red light in the bottom left corner but it will not turn on.


hello!
2 month and already quit? OK: first thing to do is to unplug TV off the power strip or wall outlet. Wait for a few minutes and plug the set back into the power source. Try to turn on the set manually, by touching sensors or buttons on control panel. some TVs have push buttons, some touch sensors. If your TV was set to "auto power on" mode, then don't touch anything after plugging set in. That's the only action you can do to "revive" the set. If you will be able to turn set on manually and "free standing" without any external connections, except power cord, check your remote control unit. 95% of consumers turn on their sets via "clickers". In case of complete failure, you might have month or 10 month left of factory warranty, depend on price you paid. Use it a.s.a.p! If needed. There is no magic button to heal broken circuitry.
Good luck,
Alex.

I have a Toshiba TV model 36A43 that won't power on. The same thing happened yeaterday as this morning. The tv will not power on via remote, or the manual power button. Yesterday, the same thing occurred...


It sounds like you have a switch problem at the front panel of the set. If a switch gets stuck internally the micro is trying to process the command and won't respond to any other commands. The only way to find out is to go into the set and desolder all the manual switches and see if the remote will work the set. It has a seperate detector for the remote. Thanks for using fixya. Good luck

I have a Viewpia LC-32IE21H which does not want to switch on.


For a three years old set, first place to look is the main power supply capacitors, at least the 5vdc standby circuit is working, the problem can be as bad as the main controller board, but look at the power supply first.

Hi, I have a problem with my rca television model number RCAS01BA. My dauther has somehow put the child lock on without using the remote control as we had lost that a couple of months ago. (God bless...


You don't need the remote to unlock the TV. Any RCA universal remote will change channels etc if you want a remote.
Now from the manual: simultaneously hold down the menu/OK button and the Volume down button for 3 seconds. This resets the pasword and unlocks the TV. You can then enter the menus as usualI believe to control/clear parental settings etc.

HP 5550 stopped


With the power off I manually pulled the print cartridge trolly to the left and then turning the power back on. This fixed the same problem for me.

Convergence Problems


If you did not use heat sink compound then you probably have not hurt the new IC's yet but you should remove them and add the heat sink compound NOW. If the convergence IC's are bad then you will have access to the convergence menu but the adjustments will have no effect. The fact that you switched the IC's and got the same results shows that the IC's are good. If your red convergence is still way out when the new IC's are installed then the old IC probably burned out the low value resistor associated with the Red Vertical (RV) channel.
