Will not turn on -- no power

Had a power outage, and now the TV will not work. Other items such as radio, playstation plugged into the same outlet are working. What could be wrong, TV is only 10 months old.

    Out of the blue, the TV turned itself off. As I was in the next room, I did not hear or see anything abnormal. All it does now is make a slight hum/buzz, which can barely be heard when it is plugged in. The unit is either 1 or 2 years old this month.

    Our TV does the same thing! Everytime we have a power outage, or just unplug the TV. It's done it for several years. It always comes back on after a couple of days. Ghost in the machine ;-)

    Ours went out after a storm and we can't get it to come back on at all, and it's been unplugged for weeks. Is there any kind of "reset" button?

Viore tv won't power up after power outage.


I would first test the outlet. Unplug the TV and plug in your vacuum or other loud or bright object. Turn on test object - if there is no operation, then you have a tripped circuit breaker. Find the electrical panel ( Grey box mounted into a wall, usually in a closet). Find the tripped breaker ( typically the switch will be halfway between on and off, and many have a red indicator by the switch base). Turn switch to off fully, then back to on.
Retest outlet.
If still no power to outlet, unplug everything from that outlet and call an electrician - there may be a serious problem with the wiring!
Hope this helps!!

We are have power outage and we can't get our 50"


Have you tried unplugging the TV from the wall for 5 minutes?

Also have you tried plugging something else into the outlet to verify that the outlet works?

Check power outlet. Connect TV to a different power outlet. Switch off TV manually, switch off power input, remove plug and cool it off for 48 hours and retry. If problem persists, it might need attention by a qualified service technician.

No color


Lets focus on the external portion of the TV set first (95 percent of all TV problems are related to things EXTERNAL To the tv itself) Check the physical CONNECTION of all cables by removing each wire bare or RCA and reinstalling it (Each power cable as well), once you have removed one cable, check it for fraying, and if it is already bare, splice a new fresh connection for it. 5. Check to make sure there are NO OTHER uneeded radios, system nearby. these systems, when powered on, will cause electromagnetic interference and prevent more than just severe tv interference SURGE PROTECTOR Surge protectors account for more than 75 percent of electric faults to stereo equipment. Lets start with your AC Wall outlet. It is standard in america that 220 Volts from out of these outlets. This implies that each device will be using 220 Volts (From within that grid zone). If anything including an alarm clock is plugged into any AC outlet socket in the vicinity of the stereo equipment/TV, it will cause electric outage, and prevent electronics from even turning on! Your TV needs dedicated electric power. If your TV is located in the living room then unplug everything else in the living room. Lets plug the TV set into a Dedicated socket. Check all light switches to ensure that power is on for that outlet. Check the TV cable for Fraying both on the ac wall end and where it plugs into the TV. Check all GFCI outlets to ensure that all red reset buttons are pushed in, check the circuit breakers for proper connection and they are turned on. Now, lets try the TV set without it connected to any cable services, vcr, dvd, stereo system, etc.

We had a power outage today and our tv won't turn on - there is a green flashing light on the front panel and that is it.



Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

Our electricity went out and now we have it back on


Most times when a power outages occur, most everything that's plugged into an outlet receives a "Power Spike". Basically it's a shock wave traveling through the neighborhood power grid when the electricity turns OFF and ON.
Hopefully the TV didn't receive too much damage. Inside the TV, there is a fuse that may need to be replaced. Radio Shack or other electronic store will carry these fuses. If this doesn't solve the problem, the Power Supply Board maybe damaged.

Please try to remove the battery and than try to switch on the laptop directly from mains power and if it works than its your battery problem or if it still not starts than there is possibility of some components of your laptop may fired due power fluctuation. So go and contact service station.

TV wont turn on due to power outage


I know it's been a while since you have sent this request, but if you havn't gotten any help or repaired the set by now, I'll try to help if I can. Your set has a seperate power supply board internally. The fuse could be burned out on that board. Also if you did in fact get a power surge, you may have a capacitor or a series of capacitors bad. Check the fuse first and if this is not the problem, I suggest you replace the power supply board as they are not real expensive. Good luck and I hope this has helped in some way
