Today, every aver­age fam­i­ly can­not imag­ine their life with­out a TV. Despite the devel­op­ment of the Inter­net indus­try, tele­vi­sion still occu­pies the first place in hold­ing a fam­i­ly evening. But if the TV does not turn on, what to do in this sit­u­a­tion? First of all, in this case, you should not pan­ic. When the TV stopped respond­ing to the start but­ton, this does not mean that it is time to call a spe­cial­ist.

First you need to inspect the equip­ment your­self. Most of the break­downs of mod­ern tech­ni­cal prod­ucts can be cor­rect­ed on their own, using the advice of pro­fes­sion­als. Most often, such a break­down is caused by banal user errors. If the TV can­not be start­ed, the mode is prob­a­bly incor­rect, the wrong but­tons were pressed by mis­take, the pow­er cable is dam­aged or dis­con­nect­ed. To deter­mine why the screen does not turn on, you must first find out the type of this house­hold appli­ance. After all, the appro­pri­ate approach will depend on this. To date, the fol­low­ing are con­sid­ered pop­u­lar:

  • Plas­ma screen;
  • LCD mon­i­tor (LCD);
  • kinescope (old­er mod­els).

The user does not need to dis­as­sem­ble his equip­ment and try to mas­ter the boards and sys­tems. There­fore, the repair of any TV mod­el will not have big dif­fer­ences. Rec­om­men­da­tions for elim­i­nat­ing the caus­es when the TV does not turn on may also be suit­able for repair­ing oth­er house­hold appli­ances.

Connection failure

If an LCD TV was recent­ly bought, and does not turn on imme­di­ate­ly, as soon as it was installed in the house, then there may have been con­nec­tion errors. The pos­si­bil­i­ty of fac­to­ry fail­ures is unlike­ly, as every rep­utable com­pa­ny tests its prod­ucts well before being export­ed to the mar­ket. If a sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion arose and the device does not turn on, there may be errors in the con­nec­tion, a break­down of the remote con­trol, or improp­er con­trol of the equip­ment.

What to do in such cas­es? It is required to read the instruc­tion man­u­al of the pur­chase again and start again. For exam­ple, why the equip­ment may not respond because the main pow­er but­ton is in the off posi­tion. When the sig­nal LED is lit, does not blink, the TV is pow­ered prop­er­ly. But if the light does not respond to your actions, the start but­ton for the equip­ment or the pow­er cable may be faulty. You should care­ful­ly inspect the pow­er out­let and the cord itself. The sock­et should be checked with a spe­cial tester screw­driv­er, in which an LED is built in. If it flash­es fre­quent­ly when the tools are moved, there is a pos­si­bil­i­ty of con­tact diver­gence. There are times when the LED on the volt­age indi­ca­tor flash­es due to its own mal­func­tion, such break­downs do not deserve atten­tion. If such areas have been reli­ably checked, and the equip­ment does not respond, the break­down must be looked for in oth­er places.

Wrong mode selection

If the indi­ca­tor lights up prop­er­ly, but the device does not work, the cause of the pow­er sup­ply should be exclud­ed. Now you need to deal with the modes of oper­a­tion of the TV. Most of the new mod­els of mod­ern pro­duc­tion are equipped with sev­er­al modes of oper­a­tion:

  • sleep­ing;
  • to watch DVD;
  • Game Mode.

And this is not the whole list. Each of them requires detailed study for prop­er use. If the pow­er but­ton does not help, it is like­ly that sleep mode is acti­vat­ed. It is not dif­fi­cult to find out — the mon­i­tor goes out in this posi­tion, but the sig­nal LED glows red. After that, you should famil­iar­ize your­self with oth­er modes of tech­nol­o­gy. For cer­tain mod­els, it is com­mon to have a but­ton that allows you to iden­ti­fy the cur­rent mode. When the game mode or DVD play­er has been set, the mon­i­tor will turn off, the indi­ca­tor will be on in such cas­es. You should also inspect each play­er or game con­sole con­nec­tion jack. If it was not pos­si­ble to con­nect a set-top box or play­er, but the mode has already been select­ed, the mon­i­tor will turn off.

Incorrect selection of TV mode

technical issues

The rea­son why the TV stopped turn­ing on may be due to a mal­func­tion of the con­trol pan­el. To check this, you should press the start but­ton — when the LED blinks, this indi­cates the cor­rect oper­a­tion of the remote con­trol. But when the LED does not blink or does not light up at all, you should inspect the remote con­trol. Some­times you just need to change the bat­ter­ies and the prob­lem is solved. When the same remote con­trol is avail­able, it is rec­om­mend­ed to try to turn on the equip­ment using it. If again there are no changes even when using anoth­er remote con­trol, you should try to start the tech­nique from the but­ton on the case itself.

Often, when a break­down occurs, the built-in speak­ers repro­duce typ­i­cal sounds — the TV clicks, cracks, etc. When the col­umn clicks at the moment the remote con­trol is pressed, this indi­cates that the remote con­trol is work­ing nor­mal­ly, the cause must be looked for fur­ther. Some mod­ern TVs have a char­ac­ter­is­tic sound sig­nal that reacts to the lack of con­nec­tion with anoth­er device or the wrong mode.

fault diagnosis

When the equip­ment con­stant­ly clicks, but does not turn on, you should find out the pecu­liar­i­ty of these sig­nals. A sin­gle sig­nal while turn­ing on the TV can­not be regard­ed as a break­down. Depend­ing on the man­u­fac­tur­er of the device, this beep can be more or less loud.

When TV cab­i­net parts are made of cheap plas­tic mate­ri­als, they can also pro­duce typ­i­cal click­ing sounds. Caus­es this heat­ing, then cool­ing of these parts. Such phe­nom­e­na should not be con­sid­ered a break­down either, although this can be pret­ty annoy­ing.

When the TV failed to turn on, but it clicks, the prob­lem is prob­a­bly in the pow­er sup­ply, which stops the start of the equip­ment. This can be deter­mined as fol­lows, when a click­ing sound occurs after press­ing the start but­ton and dis­ap­pears after the TV is turned off, the prob­a­bil­i­ty of fail­ure of the pow­er sup­ply or oth­er inter­nal part is very high.
