My TV hasn't had any problems and was working earlier today but it turned off by itself and will not come back on. I tried unplugging it and that didn't work. It is also making this ticking noise. I thought that somehow it had gone into sleep mode but I do not know how to get it out. I tried touching every button on the remote and nothing is working.

Re: TV Won't work
If you were watching the set and it went off bt itself is not likely is in any sleep mode,you have already tried unplugin the unit that did not work,The set needs service to diagnose what happened,I am sure is nothing you could have prevented,it just failed by itself.Is lees expensive if take the set to a servicer for an estimate.

Check the electrical outlet which the tv is plugged into. Make sure nothing is loose at the outlet as well as on the back of the tv where the power cable plugs in. Another thing to try is plug a different device into that same electrical outlet and see if it turns on. If it doesn't turn on, it could be a faulty electrical outlet.If you've tried both the remote & the power button on the tv, a shot in the dark would be to change the batteries in the remote. You could always try calling their tech support at 1-800-256-2487. A last resort would be to return the tv from where you purchased it.
What source are you using? If cable, you should only be able to pickup channel 3 or 4 if you're using the box. If there is no antenna, that would be the only other answer if the set checks out...accordianman
I had the same problem with mine turning off after 3-5 seconds. After much research I found a suggestion that on some combo units the vcr part could have a power supply cutout if it is not working correctly. I tried to insert a tape and found that the tape mechanism would not accept a tape. I used a little bit of force and managed to insert a tape. I then played the tape forwards and backwards and the power stayed on! I ejected the tape and found the TV then worked just fine. The power has now been on for over one hour. I hope this give you another avenue to try and fix your problem.
I found this to work on my Toshiba TV/VHS combo MV19M4 after trying others suggestions that had worked on similar models but nothing worked on mine. Maybe it will work for yours. Follow these steps:
1: Unplug the TV for 1 minute then plug it back in.
2: In the menu select "TV Set Up".
3: Move the blinking block to beside "V-CHIP Set" BUT DO NOT SELECT IT.
4: Hold in the number 1 button on the remote.
5: Hold in the volume down button on the TV.
Your TV will turn off. Give it a few seconds to reset itself and then turn it back on and you will have to completely reprogram your settings. When you go to the V-CHIP settings it will ask for your new code.
