Question

What do I do if my set does not turn on?

Answer

If you are trying to turn the power on using both the remote and the power button on the front of the set. and the set turns on using the power button on the front of the set, there is a problem with your remote.

  • Change the batteries in the remote.
  • Move closer to the set about 3 feet and make sure the remote is pointed toward the remote signal sensor on the set.
  • Bright light such as florescent light, overhead light or sunlight can interfere with the remote signal.

If the set turns on using the remote but not the POWER button on the front of the set, your set may require service. Please contact a repair center in your local area. 

If the LED light on the front of the set blinks but does not turn on when you press the POWER button on the remote or front of the set, your set may require service. Please contact a repair center in your local area.

If the LED light does not blink when you press the POWER button try unplugging the set from the power outlet for 10 seconds. You should also try plugging a lamp or other electrical appliance into the outlet to make sure there is not a problem with the outlet. Sometimes an electrostatic discharge may cause the set to lock up and disconnecting the power resets the set. If problem persist, your set may require service. Please contact a repair center in your local area.

If using a surge protector, try plugging the set directly into the wall outlet. An electrostatic discharge could have tripped the breaker in the surge protector.

If you feel you need service, you can contact any local television repair shop for further assiatance.
