Okay, my problem is when I push the power button, the sound and front light goes away but the picture stays. If I have it on everything works normal except there are, what appears to be, interference lines flickering across the screen. Not profound but enough to be annoying. If I push the power button about 7-8 times the picture will finally go off but I can see that the tv is still powered slightly. When I turn it on, I don't get the "shock" sound that it use to do. By the way, we had a lightning storm when this started doing this. Power surge was what happened and the surge protector was fried. Please help. I love my tv and want to keep it. Please no referrals to a new tv. Thanks!

Sounds like one of the front panel buttons is jammed. press each one and see if any fail to "rebound" or feel different from the rest. You can usually work the button in a 'circular motion" to release it. If the buttons seem normal , it's possible that the switch inside the TV has collapsed
There were no burnt parts but there was 13 extra volts getting by the
transformer in a loop causing it to stay on. It was still powering the
picture but not the sound. Since I couldn't find the bad part I was
just going to replace the whole board for $189., but I decided to get rid of it. I sold it for parts and bought some computer memory so I could watch tv on my computer. :P It was a good compromise, I think.
the tv turns on fine,
but after 5 - 30 min or so, "sometimes MORE " the picture all of a sudden go's black. Sound is ok
it is 100% loose contact problem.
1 please check for any connector or print for loose.
2 in signal processor ic there might be loose.
remember there is no component failure.
From what you describe, a solder joint has probably cracked loose in a power supply or deflection circuit, which is quite common. Since you do sometimes see a good picture, all of your major components are fine. Repairing cracked solder joints is a very easy procedure and definately worth fixing on a 32 inch TV.
