Most DVD players today are very inexpensive.
If your system is working well otherwise, I suggest purchasing a new DVD player. Try that solution. If for any reason it does not work then another problem may exist which may include an issue with your TV!

Doesn't sound good. Try unplugging it for awhile and then plug it in again. If it still isn't working take it for service or get a new TV.

Hello Wilson, try to check if your remote control does not have the Vol + key, locked or that may be issuing that command, without the key being locked
You can do a test to know if your remote control is broadcasting
Take your cell phone, put it in the camera position and point the emitter LED of the remote control to the camera, if you notice that it emits a light, then the control would be wrong, if it does not emit, without touching any key, the remote would be fine
If so, then the problem would be on TV
Look, there is no dirt in the area of the buttons on the TV
If with all these tests, you remain the same, I suggest you look for a specialized technical service
I hope you can solve the problem

Hola Wilson, prueba revisar si tu control remoto no tiene la tecla de Vol+, trabada o que pueda estar emitiendo esa orden, sin que la tecla este trabada
Puedes hacer una prueba para saber si tu control remoto esta emitiendo
Toma tu celular, ponlo en posici?n de c?mara y apunta el Led emisor del control remoto hacia la c?mara, si notas que emite una luz , entonces estar?a mal el control, si no emite, sin tocar ninguna tecla, el remoto estar?a bien
Si es as?, entonces el problema estar?a en el TV
F?jate, que no haya suciedades en el ?rea de los botones en el televisor
Si con todas estas pruebas, sigues igual, te sugiero que busques un servicio t?cnico especializado
Espero puedas resolver el problema

Hello, for what you comment, it gives the idea that the problem is on the main board
Test disconnect the output from the main board to the T-Con board and reconnect the power supply cable to the main board and check if it turns on, if it did, the problem is on the T-Con board, but confirm that the main board is the one of the problem
I hope you can solve the problem
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola, por lo que comentas, da la idea que el problema esta en la placa principal
Prueba desconectar la salida de la placa principal a la placa T-Con y reconecta el cable de la fuente de alimentaci?n en la placa principal y f?jate si enciende, si as? lo hiciera, el problema esta en la placa T-Con, sino confirma que la placa principal es la del problema
Espero puedas resolver el problema

That's really odd that a power outage did that. I would try unplugging the TV, hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then leave it unplugged for an hour and come back and try it again, that will for sure reset everything by removing power from it. If that doesn't have any effect then its possible the mainboard got damaged by a surge.
