Failing capacitors in the power supply will cause this problem and it's fairly common accross all brands.

The parts are cheap, but the labour costs can be high.

If you cannot do this procedure yourself, and also understand the dangers of the electronics, then call several TV repair shops in your area to get a quote, you maybe surprised how much the price can vary.

Just advise them you need to have the capacitors on the power board replaced. It will help them give you a more accurate quote.

Hp pavilion modelp6510f press power switch on top of pc does not light computer fans blow but compute does not turn on

ok th p6000. complete range when they were made had to be recalled as they put the copper expansion pipes ran across the gpu & cpu hence a massive overheat problem. they put copper shims over the cpu & gpu but this worked for a short time but it was inevitable and both units ended up being cooked i had this problem with mine. so if you have tried external monitor with no images it would sound or more likely to be the gpu cooked sorry for the bad news.

Philips 32" tv will not turn on flashing three

You have to check the power supply of you tv for any voltage missing. also check the back light inverter board for any short circuit in it. Inverter transformers in the back light controlling board can become faulty.Three blink indicate the power supply have some problem. First of all replace all the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board. If filter capacitors in the power supply is bad then this problem can occur.

Red power indicator light is blinking

The flashing light indicates a short circuit inside the power supply circuitry. This type of repair is not a DIY without a multimeter, desoldering iron and hand soldering skills. I repair these power supplies, if you need further info write to [email protected]

It will power on but then turn right back off it worked fine yesterday

One of four things happen when these lcd's get power problems. 1. They either go completely dead[no power with no lights] 2. Little green light will blink and go back to red with dtv briefly showing and then the tv screen go blank 3. Same as # 2, but with screen staying blank. The fourth is extremely rare, which is a shorted panel that makes the tv set behave like it's getting no power. All signal a bad tv, and the fourth is not usually repairable, requiring a whole new panel. I hear that power flows thru the panel, so that would explain how sometimes it will short out.
