Steps to Fix Bush TV Stuck On Standby

If your Bush TV is stuck on standby mode and won’t turn on, there are a few troubleshooting steps you can try before seeking repair. By methodically working through possible issues, you may be able to get your TV operational again.

1: Attempt a Power Cycle

One of the first things to try with any electronic device that is unresponsive is a power cycle. To power cycle your Bush TV:

  • Unplug the television from the electrical outlet.
  • Press and hold the power button on the TV itself for 20-30 seconds to drain any residual charge.
  • Plug the electrical cord back into the outlet.
  • Press the power button on the remote control or on the TV set.

With luck, these steps will clear any temporary glitches and turn on your TV. A hard reset may also help with other issues, Check How to Perform Hard Reset on Bush TV.

2: Check Connections and Power Supply

If a power cycle does not work, verify all physical connections to your TV. Secure any loose HDMI, component, composite, or coaxial connections. Follow these steps to verify connections and power supply:

  • Make sure all cables connecting devices to the TV are securely inserted into the correct ports. (if you’re connecting new devices or want to stream content from your phone, we’ve got you covered with guides on connecting your iPhone and using apps)
  • Make sure the TV’s power cord is firmly plugged into the electrical outlet
  • Avoid using an extension cord if possible
  • Confirm the outlet is not overloaded with too many devices

3; Ensure Adequate Ventilation

Televisions and other A/V components can fail to power on or get stuck in standby if they overheat. Make sure your Bush TV has adequate ventilation around the exterior and that cabinet doors do not block airflow. For this:

  • Place the TV where air can freely circulate around it
  • Clean dust out of the exterior vents with compressed air
  • Vacuum ventilation grills to remove clutter restricting airflow

4: Isolate Potential Interference

Nearby electronic devices might disrupt the TV’s ability to turn on, to remove these disruptions:

  • Turn off or relocate nearby routers, Bluetooth gadgets, or appliances
  • These electronics can disrupt the TV’s ability to power on

5: Test Power Button Functionality

Power button can be the reason for your Bush tv stuck on standby mode, to remove the issue:

  • Press the power button on both the remote and the TV itself
  • If one works but not the other, the issue is isolated

6: Unlock Parental Controls

Parental control locks or channel blocks could prevent TV start up. Consult your owner’s manual for the TV to learn if special steps are needed to disable parental controls before troubleshooting further.

On many Bush sets, pressing and holding the “Display” button for 10-20 seconds bypasses parental locks. The factory code 2580 also works on some models.

Parental controls can affect app access as well, you might need to Retune Bush Smart TV or Install/Delete apps on Bush TV.
