Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hello, and sorry for the delay.
I may be able to help, but I need to ask you for some more information.
How old is the TV please?
Also, when did the problem occur- was it after a storm, or power outage, etc.?
Okay, was basically wondering if this si the first time it's done it, or if the issue occurred in the past.
We often see these sets develop faults after a few years, and in most cases it requires replacement of a component (the Power Supply Board being the most common).
However it's worth it to try a hard reset, as sometimes the processor in the TV can simply have locked up.
The first thing you would try, is disconnect the set from power, then press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote), for 10 seconds and release. Then plug the set back in, and also check that the power cord is connected tight at the TV as well. Press power once, and see if the set powers up normally. Try this procedure up to 3 times, and please let me know what happens.
Do you need further assistance with this?
Okay no problem. Offhand I don't have high hopes for it, as this is generally a hardware failure that causes this, but it's the only thing you can try on a user level to correct this.
Otherwise the power supply board would need to be replaced which is about 1/2 the cost of a new TV- so generally not cost effective to repair an 8 year old set.
If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click the 5 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts. It is my livelihood and you can follow up at any time if needed.
