It’s awful to come home after work and realize that you can’t watch TV because your Onn TV won’t turn on at all. The first thing you might do is panic, but don’t worry!
You don’t have to call the cable guy or wait until morning to try again – with these simple troubleshooting steps; you can have your Onn TV up and running in no time!
But why this Occurs?
Before diving into the solution, you must know why precisely this could occur so that you can identify the issue and fix it quickly.
The first reason is that the power cord is either unplugged from the back of the TV or malfunctioning. The second possibility is that it might have a power surge and needs to be reset. The third possibility is that the TV remote control isn’t working and the fourth reason is that the TV’s motherboard is damaged.
However, these are the primary reasons your TV not turning on.
- The TV plug isn’t firmly inserted to the outlet.
- The power cord isn’t properly connected to the TV.
- The power outlet is working.
- The power button isn’t turned on.
- The remote control isn’t working.
- The TV may be malfunctioning.
Fixing the Onn TV won’t turn on the issue.
In short: To troubleshoot if your Onn TV won’t turn on, ensure that the TV is plugged into a working outlet and there are no loose wires or connections anywhere. Then press and hold the power button on the TV for 30 seconds. If the TV is still not turning on, reset your TV to factory settings.
Not over yet! I will explain the method in further depth below so you can easily understand every step and do it yourself. Before that, look at the bellow table for a better understanding…

|Power Button Stuck||Try pressing the power button several time|
Step 1: Is your Onn TV plugged in?
This is the very basic thing that you should not miss out on! Generally, everyone underestimates the basics, but maybe there lies the solution they don’t realize!
So, First, check that the power outlet is working correctly. Then ensure that the power cable is securely plugged-in both the power outlet and the back of the TV.
Also, don’t forget to check the TV’s power cable for any visual damage. If you see any damage, replace it with a new one!
Step 2: Check your TV’s power button
Sometimes the power button on your TV may get jammed due to dust or gunk accumulation. If this is the case, your TV will not power on because it’s not getting any command to turn it on.
First, try pressing the button several times and see if this fixes it. If that doesn’t work, you may need to use a small tool to push it in. A paperclip or a toothpick should do the trick. Once the power button is pushed all the way in, the TV should turn on. If it does not work, move on to the next step.
Step 3: Check your remote control.
Another possibility is that the remote you use to turn on your TV is malfunctioning. Maybe the remote’s battery is dead, the IR sensor is burnt out, or the remote is completely broken.
First, check the batteries to make sure they’re not dead. If they are, replace them and see if that fixes the problem. If not, try cleaning the dust and gunk accumulation from the battery contacts.
But if you bought your remote a few days or months ago and think its battery is OK, check the IR sensor to see whether it is damaged. For this, open your mobile camera app and point it at your remote’s IR transmitter. If you see a light blink or flash on your phone’s camera app after pressing any of the buttons, your IR transmitter is working correctly. If not, then replace your remote.

Q. How do I know if my Onn TV fuse is blown?
If your television suddenly stops working, there’s a chance that a fuse has blown. But how can you tell if that’s the case? Here are a few signs that your Onn TV fuse may be blown:
- The power light on your TV is off or flickering.
- There’s no picture on your screen, even when you turn on your TV.
- You hear a popping sound coming from your TV.
- Your TV smells like it’s burning.
If you notice any of these signs, it’s a good idea to check your TV’s fuse to see if it’s blown. To do this, use a screwdriver to unscrew the TV fuse cap holder. Then, carefully check the fuse wire. If you see a visible gap between the wires or a metallic or dark smear inside the glass, you have a blown TV fuse.
Note: The TV fuse is located on the power supply board of the TV.
Q. how do I know my Onn TV motherboard is damaged?
There are a few signs that you can look for to see if this is the case:
✔ The TV won’t turn on. This is the most obvious sign that something is wrong with the TV. If it won’t power on, the motherboard is likely damaged.
✔ The TV turns on, but there’s no picture. If you see a blank screen when you turn on your TV, that’s another sign that the motherboard could be damaged.
The TV turns on, but the picture looks fuzzy or distorted, which indicates that the motherboard might be damaged.
