I was watching the tv one day when it just shut off. Its only a couple of years old. The light on front of the set won't even come on,and the remote won't turn it on either. Its like it died, no power. Is there something I can do to check it?

Re: tv will not come on
Sounds like a short issue. More than likely a shorted horizontal output transistor. First all fuses need to be checked. If good, check the HOT. If the HOT is shorted and a common part you'll be ok. Apex does not support it's products. In most cases they are impossible to repair due to unavailability of parts. Anything beyond the HOT will probably not be obtainable. If you are going to look at this unit remember safety. Good luck.

If the set is blinking there is an issue in the main board, either it is a power supply or vertical deflection problem, you also have to consider the set is 10 years old and the average life span of a tv ranges between 5 to 10 years. If the set is repaired the chances of a breakdown are extremely high because the other parts are 10 years old.
U turn tv on hear any squiling,grinding or motor noises?Picture show up before it shut down picture have flashes of black&white within the picture?Yes,to all of these,this tv have a colors wheel and it dead,require the colors wheel replacing.No,none of these problems.The tv projection lamp,if in this tv like a 1 1/2 or 2 years,tv ben on an watches like 4 or 5 hours a day?The "LAMP" LED light indication lite up or flahes,the projection lamp life is over.Require a new projection lamp.

i think its time to get new one ,for 22 years it has served its useful life now its in the end life when it will start giving problem even if you fix this one another one may likely come up at times this is usually the case as most of the parts are worn out after many years of service even humans so i think your best bet should getting new one .
hope this helps
ok your problem is the RGB section maybe crack soldered at the RGB try to resoldered it! you seen that at the back of the picture tube they have small board attach at the neck... resoldred all small part, and transistor drivers!!!
