Have you ever had one of those moments when you’re all set for a movie night, but your TV decides not to turn on? We’ve all been there! That’s why we’re here, Teko.ph, the largest aircon, appliance, and computer services provider in the Philippines, with four solutions you can try when your TV won’t turn on.
1. Check the power source, power cord, and power LED.
Sometimes, the reason why your TV won’t turn on is just simple. First, ensure that your TV is properly plugged into a functioning power outlet. Test the outlet by plugging in a different device.
Next, check if the cord has any visible damage or frayed wires. And then, check if the power LED lights up yet the screen remains blank when you turn the TV on. These can indicate power or display issues.
2. Use the remote control and manual power button.
First, try pressing the power button on the TV itself to check if it works. And then, use the remote control to rule out any issues with the remote. If it does not work, try replacing the remote control batteries first.
You may also power cycle the TV. Unplug it first, and then wait for 10-15 minutes before plugging it back in. Try to turn it on through the manual power button or remote control.
3. Check the user manual.
Not all DIY techniques apply to all TV kinds or models. For your safety, check the user manual for specific troubleshooting steps. You will also see error codes related to your TV model, which will help you solve them.
4. Consult a TV technician.
None of the above steps resolve the issue? We advise you to contact the manufacturer’s customer support if it is still under warranty. Better yet, contact a reliable TV technician for further diagnosis and repair.
