Power supply probably fried. You will have to take the TV apart to test.

I had to unplug my tv today (actually the TV is plugged into a surge protector, so I unplugged the surge protector.) when I plugged the surge protector back in the TV wouldn't go on (acts as if its...


There should be a surge release button on the surge protector to bring the protector back to normal (should be red in color) Some surge protection devices have this option so just check if your s has it. If that is not the case than I think that you might have blown a fuse in your TV.Might just have to open it up and change the fuse within with the same ratings, but please be careful because do have high voltages so get an experienced technician to do this for you.
Good Luck.

My Wii stopped working. Nothing lights up.


This is a common problem with the Wii. As I said, I'm very surprised Nintnedo didn't cover this in the owners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,not the Wii itself.

There is no need to buy a new one or a AC adapter. Resetting it should work. There is a circuit inside the AC adapterthat needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

My wii will not turn on, I have never had a problem with it before. I checked all of the plugs and everything seems great except it will not turn on.


It seems every 5th problem I see is this issue. Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii or in the Owner's Manual.

This is a common problem with the Wii. It happens almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc. Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens.

Power will come back on, or you'll go to turn the Wii on one day, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,not the Wii itself.

You need to reset the AC adapter to get the Wii to work again. There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

No power either!!


Unplug the surge protector and plug the tv in directly to an outlet that you know is working, plug something else in first to be sure.

you may find that your surge protector is shot. if it is toss it and get a new one.

TV WENT OFF AFTER WATCHING AND NOW IT WON'T GO ON AT ALL


Try to do the following, it didn't work for me but it may work for you...


The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.

My sharp LC-20AV4U tv did not turn on when i plugged it in


The fuse is blowning because most likely when you plugged it it, it took a power surge. And the power surge blow a proection diode. As long as you opened it up... in the power section you will see a bunch of diodes. Get a multi meter and check these diodes out. Besides the diodes... you will see a transformer.... if you are looking at the unit with the fuse to the left... then look to the right of the transformer... you will see a transistor on a metal heat sink... that could have blown also.. if that did... then you should also check the diodes just on the other side of the heatsink too.

Good luck
