Bush TV Stuck On Standby: Here’s How To Solve It

Bush TV Stuck On Standby: Here’s How To Solve It

Along with a wide range of features, Bush TV models are known for their durability and quality, but sometimes, they get stuck on standby mode when you are about to watch something.

This article will help you analyze why you are experiencing this issue and how you can fix it with quick solutions.

Is it OK to leave a Bush television on standby?

When you turn off your Bush TV by pressing the power button on the remote, it goes into standby mode. The standby light on the front of the TV indicates that it is still receiving power.  

Standby mode uses less power than if you switch on the TV and leave it idle, which is generally a safe practice.

But if you are concerned about energy usage or want to be extra cautious, you can unplug your TV when it is not in use. This will prevent it from using any power at all.

Why is my Bush TV stuck on standby mode?

  • Your TV is facing a software issue.
  • The Bush TV remote is faulty, or its batteries are dead.
  • The power button on the TV is not working.
  • Your TV is overheating.
  • Your Bush TV remote is not paired with your TV.
  • There is an issue with the hardware of your TV. 

How do you fix a Bush TV that is stuck on standby?

Power cycle your Bush TV

  • First, unplug your Bush TV from the power supply unit.
  • Now, press and hold the Power button on the TV unit for 20 to 30 seconds.
  • After the elapsed time, plug the TV back into the power supply.
  • Now, press the power button on your remote or TV and see if it has started working.

Note: Ensure that you update your TV firmware from time to time. Older software versions are the main cause of bugs or glitches on your TV, resulting in the Bush TV missing channels or not getting out of standby mode.

Check the cables and power connection 

The next step is to check the cables and power connection. Ensure that all the wires are securely connected to the TV and that there are no loose connections. Also, check if the power cable is faulty or not.

If the TV is not getting enough power, it will not turn on from the standy mode. Therefore, ensure that the power outlet is working and not overloaded with multiple devices.

Moreover, if you are using an extension, switch to a direct power supply or use a high-quality extension, and do not plug in too many devices at once.

Place the TV in a ventilated area

If your TV is not placed in a well-ventilated area, it can overheat and can go into standby mode. So, put your TV in a ventilated area to ensure that it does not overheat.

You can also try to clean the dust from the ventilation grills, as this will help improve air circulation and prevent overheating. In case the TV does overheat:

  • Unplug your TV from the electric supply unit.
  • Remove any device connected to the TV and let it cool down completely for at least 30 minutes.
  • Finally, plug the TV back into the electric supply and verify the fix.

Remove interfering devices

Another reason can be the interference between the remote rays and the TV from other appliances or networks caused by electromagnetic radiation. Therefore, remove any devices that may be interfering with the signal, such as routers, Bluetooth devices, etc.

Check the power button

If the power button on your TV or remote is not working, that could be the reason you can’t get it to go into standby.

First, press the power button on the remote and wait for the TV light to turn blue. Then, replace the remote batteries and check again.

Now, try turning off your TV from the power outlet and plug it in again. Press the power button on your TV and see if the blue light turns on. If not, you may need to take your TV or the remote for repair or replacement.

Sync Bush TV remote

  • Grab your remote and press the Power button.
  • Now, press and hold the Home button on your remote until the TV lights start blinking.
  • The pairing process will take 15 seconds.
  • Next, the TV lights will stop flashing, indicating that the TV and remote have paired completely.
  • If this fixes the problem, retune the channels afterward.


In this article, we discussed the reasons for your Bush TV failing to turn on from the standby state and how you can troubleshoot the issue. Hopefully, with these steps, you can turn on your TV and enjoy watching your favorite content.

However, if your Bush TV is still not working, take it to a repair shop or contact Bush TV support to resolve hardware issues.
