What do you need to do in this case? How do you solve the problem? Follow the instructions mentioned below.
Check the connection
In order to fix your Emerson TV not working problem, you first need to make sure that your cables are all connected correctly.
With your power source disconnected check to make sure you have a connection from one end of each cable to each corresponding plug on both your television and any peripherals (such as a DVD player).
If any plugs are loose or unattached, reconnect them. Then restart and see if your Emerson tv still won’t work properly. So make sure that your connections are fixed properly with proper care and nothing remains loose.
Unplug the power supply
Now, unplug your television from its power source for about a minute. This is to reset all of your television settings and give it time to reboot.
Once you’ve done that, reconnect everything (cables) and turn on your Emerson TV again. Give it about 30 seconds and hopefully, your issue should be resolved now.
Reset the TV
If you still face the same problem, you can try resetting your TV. A reset can solve the problem most of the time. In order to reset the TV, you need to follow the instructions.
It involves factory resetting your television back to its original state. Here’s how you do it: Disconnect your Emerson TV from its power source again.
Press and hold in these buttons in order to perform a factory reset on your Emerson TV remote control: Menu, Info, 1, 9, Power.
Plugin both devices
In order to view a digital signal from one device, it must be plugged into both your television and your HDMI cable.
In most cases, you can plug in both devices using either of your two HDMI ports on your television.
However, if both ports are occupied by another device, you may need to use an extra adapter so that you can plug in a second device.
If you’re not sure how to check which ports are being used by other devices (and therefore unavailable for use), check out Step 4 below.
For example, if you’re trying to connect a Blu-ray player via HDMI and already have a gaming console connected via HDMI, you’ll need to purchase an additional port splitter or HDMI switch before you can connect your Blu-ray player.
This is because Blu-ray players only have one input for connecting to televisions with multiple inputs.
Use Universal Remote
The most important step involves using a universal remote control. These are designed to work with many different brands of televisions; however, each brand uses its own unique codes.
Universal remotes are basically the remotes that control most of the TVs singlehandedly. You can try using it if the problem does not solve.
Can you repair it by yourself?

Also, before attempting to repair an LCD HDTV yourself, make sure you know what parts to replace if necessary; often times it’s just a fuse but sometimes it’s more complicated than that.
So, you need to make sure that you consult an expert in the field who could take a guarantee.
Sometimes, your television’s HDMI port may stop working. And when that happens, you’re stuck watching conventional shows.
