Unplug it and allow to dry. It's important that it be unplugged so long as any wetness is present as you can cause further damage. You might use a fan to speed the drying. After the TV is dry you can reconnect to power and try it. If no luck, unplug it and give it some more time. Without the aid of alcohol and compressed air, it can take two days or more to dry the water from under some of the parts. Be patient! or call a servicer.
Some say you can reset the timer in the service menu, normally accessed by holding down the menu button on the TV and the mute button on your remote at the same time. Others say you need a special "service remote" to access the timer. I've changed my bulb twice already and have just learned to ignore the amber lamp timer light. A little square of black electricians tape would make it go away!
Good Day, hcolern2b;
Sound like your TV's front panel button assembly is bad, replace or disconnect and use remote only.
Good Luck, big IRISH.............PS disconnect from front by removing speaker grill and small black panel, follow wire harness.real close by.
For the majority of phillips/magnavox universal remotes: Hold code search button down till red light satys on. Press the tv button and the red light should blink and stay lit. With the tv on, push the power button repeatedly until the tv turns off.(dont push the power button again after the tv turns off or it will go to the next code). Push the mute button to save the setting.
Sounds like a common problem where the Horizontal Output Transistor shorts due to heat, loading by a partially shorted flyback or yoke or old dried heat sink compound. If the HOT is ok then there is probably a short in another component. This can be determined in most cases by isolating each module one at a time. In other words disconnect the audio circuit and try, disconnect each crt separately, etc. If no shorts are determined check the power supply for proper output voltages. All this would need to be done by a tech or someone familiar with the process. Repair cost should not be that much compared to the cost of a new set.
