Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Welcome. I am Mike, an experienced field technician. We are now connected together on this convenient website where I am able to help you. To get started, I need to know you can see this message and are able to reply to me here...
- Can you please test the power outlet using something simple like a known working table lamp?
** My replies can take up to 5 minutes to appear **** Do NOT start a new question **
Please clarify what the problem is, because if the outlet is working it's not clear how the tv could work in another outlet but not on this outlet...
Or are you saying the tv power's on, but you aren't getting a picture or signal from a cable/sat box/dvr???
When it "won't power on", is the LED on the front coming on? or blinking? or?
What is the model number of the tv?
If you are 100% sure this power outlet is working then unfortunately there is not going to be any easy reset/fix. The Tv has an internal failure and the back panel needs to come off, complex checks need to be performed with a meter, then parts ordered and installed. If that is something you want to attempt then reply back here and I can assist you further (experience needed).
If you are unable or unwilling to perform any of these procedures then a repair shop should be consulted but I can tell you that diagnosis, parts, and labor will end up costing just about the same as a new 42" Tv and could take a few weeks to get all sorted.
Unless you can actually do the repairs yourself, I would strongly suggest you use the money you saved by coming here first toward a replacement tv rather than going for a repair.
Let me know how else I can assist you and before you go please take a moment to submit at least a 3 star rating at the top of this page.
Hello, just checking back in to see if you still need help, or perhaps you would like to acknowledge that my time and input has been helpful?
