Hi team,

I have a LCD B530 37", from 2010.
I have the following problem: the tv is pluged into the power cord. the electric company cut off the power. no electric current in my home, so no device is working.
when the power came back, the LCD it turning on automatically, so it's start. it should be in the standy-by mode
sometimes when i arrive in the evening at home, the tv is on, even if in the morning i did shut it down.

can you help me so tolve this problem, so the TV won't turn on when the power is comming back, and remain in the stand-by mode?

thank you.

Why not turn it off completely?

Or doesn't it have an on/off switch?

Hi Kees,

I don't want to turn it off completly. I just want to have it in standby. it's closed but the red light is on,like any other tv, and when you press on the remote the red button you will turn on the tv.
other tv that i have, don't turn on, when electric current is turned off and on.this one does.

The red LED on my TV is off if I turn it off.

In fact, on both my 2 TV's. So "any other TV" doesn't include mine. When I want to look, I turn it on. Just like my radio (when I want to listen) or my PC (when I want to use that).

Your choice here, I think, if there's no choice in the setup menu to change this behavior.

It's like this.

you turn on your tv. you watch 2h, then you turn off your tv. now the tv is in stand-by mode, means that the red led is on. to turn it on again you just to pres the red button on the remote.
but if the tv is turned off, and the power is cut off (no red led is on) for a period of time, when the power came back again, the tv should b again in stand-by (red led is on). but no it will be open just like you have presed the red button from the remote.
and this is what i'm trying to avoid. that the tv wont turn on by himself, when the power is back.

But it doesn't work that way, you say.

So I'm afraid you can't do more than having this behaviour as a selection criterium for your next TV. Luckily, it's unlikely to live more than 10 years, so in 2020 you can have one that suits you better.
