  • Seiki SE32HY27: Will Not Turn On

    Welcome back friends!

    Today we have a model with just one board! Easy right? Yes! But, if one thing goes wrong with that board, you’ll see it’s a costly replacement. So let’s jump in!

    TV Information

    Brand: Seiki

    Television: 32” LED HDTV

    Model #: SE32HY27

    Symptoms: Vague at best! The TV will not come on. Indicator light turns red to show it is in standby. But the TV just wont kick on. Not as easy to diagnose, especially without a diagnostic indicator like some other TV models have, but there’s very few things to take apart with this TV model.
