No, what I was trying to find out is:

A) Power from Gen straight to TV
B) Power from Gen -> Convertor -> Batteries -> Inverter -> TV.

If the Inverter was turned off when the Gen is supplying power then it's option A. If it was turned on when the Gen is supplying power it could be A or B.

What this helps identify is if there is a problem with compatibility between the Inverter and that TV. (See comment above about clean AC.)

I'm confused. What does the inverter have to do with it? If you have the Jensen LED TV's they should all be native 12V. Unless you have front ent. center.

Could be heavy draw on batteries, voltage drop causing issues? Although on ten power not sure why.

If they're 12V televisions then it could be low voltage causing an amp overload (Devices run on watts actually, a 60 watt TV will draw 6 amps at 10V, 5 amps at 12V, 4.3 amps at 14V) kicking an internal safety.

Measuring the voltage at the plug will tell the tale. If low voltage is discovered then it could be any number of causes from poor tension on a connection to corrosion.

When plugged in the converter runs the system up to 14V or so, if it's running just a bit low then that makes up the difference.

Oh, if he's got 12v TVs then that's a whole different set questions. Post 1 thru 8 seemed to indicate he didn't and was powering them through an inverter (or straight from Genny).
