For the past few months, I’ve been experiencing an all-too-familiar scenario. My television has inexplicably entered standby mode and refused to budge – no matter how much force was exerted on its buttons.
My efforts to elicit a response from the remote control yielded nothing; however, upon turning it around and pressing its power button – voila! An astounding revival occurred and the TV instantly powered up!
Despite possessing numerous remotes, I found myself in need of one more. Sadly, this particular model did not possess an available replacement – necessitating me to come up with a clever solution.
How to determine if your TV is in standby mode
If you have a TV that’s susceptible to short-circuiting during power cuts, be sure to check for this telltale symptom: make certain your remote’s on standby mode. If the television must be manually switched on before viewing can resume – as evidenced by its screen remaining blank even after pressing any keys – then it’s been relegated to standby mode!
Sometimes, when I flip off my television and head out of the home, some channels unexpectedly return to the lineup. On other occasions, the TV inadvertently returns itself to its previous position without any intervention from me or anyone else at all. It’s important to discern whether or give heed to these subtle differences between active and passive modes so that we may best prepare ourselves for their potential repercussions.
Are you in need of assistance identifying the state of your television? Use the test below to obtain an accurate verdict!
Step 1: Power off your TV and unplug it from the wall
- To begin, thoroughly power down your television and unplug it from the wall.
- If you find yourself left with a lifeless screen, chances are your device is still receiving power – even if it cannot be detected by its standard AV receiver or satellite box. This can occur when power is lost due to an outage or surge; such instances frequently lead to busted equipment!
- If you’re fortunate enough to possess a ‘standby’ function on your TV, simply press any button on the remote to awaken it.
- Check for obstructions that may have potential curbside ees t o f o r c o n t in g I n t o p l u g s
- Ensure that all necessary plugs are out of sight and unobstructed before procuring your new ones. Before plugging in any of your devices, scrutinize where they’ll be located. Ensure nothing will prevent them from being connected!
Step 2: Press and hold the Power button on the back of your TV while waiting 5 seconds
In order to prevent further damage, we must cease all power from flowing through the device to avoid any possible malfunction. To expedite this process, follow these steps:
- First, locate the Power button and press it down until you hear a click.
- Then release your pressure and wait until the green light illuminates before proceeding.
Step 3: Plug your TV back into the wall and power it back on
Upon completion of the above procedure, your device will spring to life automatically!

How to fix a TV that won’t turn on when in standby mode

- Ensure that you apply steady pressure when striking this area of the device to ensure that it does not topple over during operation – which could lead to serious accidents.
This method may sound unorthodox but rest assured; it works.
