This answer was rated:

Hi i have got model number 40BV700B TV i have had it for about 4 years and it just stays on standby mode and wont switch on with remote or by pressing the button on the tv. I have tryed turning it off for 24 hours but it still does the same. Please can you help.?

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

Can you please remove the power to the TV (so unplug it from the power socket).

Then on the actual TV, hold the power button for 60 seconds then release.

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the TV, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please

No it is still the same, the standby light flashes a few times then stays on.


It is the internal mainboard that has faulted, this now confirms it

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the TV to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
