Your certainly doing all the right things. I wish more people on this site would give a great description like yours.
OK, so Process of Elimination.
An AC Multimeter would prove useful here.
Assuming your fairly technical and are aware of electric shocks.
Use the meter on AC scale to check for 110 or 240v AC inside your TV power supply section.
Does it get to the board? Does it get to the Switch Mode Power Supply?
Switch Mode power Supplies can be powered up by a normal AC type switch (ac wires to physical switch) or a Logic type switch. (Like on a computer Keyboard) This triggers the Switch Mode to turn on. Usually you get a high frequency zip sound.
Is the switch mode supply open on the PCB or is it in a Metal Enclosure? (perhaps has a separate fuse inside) the Electrolytic capacitors inside here are in a harsh environment so this is where they leak or bulge.
If the Switch Mode Supply doesn't come to life then you have the problem.
The other side of the Switch Mode Supply is lower DC voltages. Perhaps 12v or 5v. Use the multimeter to check.
A logic type switch usually stores a voltage in a capacitor on the secondary low voltage side of the Power Sup. When the logic switch discharges the cap it fires up the SM Power Supply. This is how computers boot up. So look for bad cams on low voltage side.
See where wires come in from switch to Power Supply.
I'm afraid if the power was lost during the update, the TV has a real software problem. But you don't have the tools to put in a complete set of new firmware. When the TV is still working, the processor and the program can manage the upload to the memory and after a restart everything should work fine. But no perfect firmware in the TV now that can do the upload rot the flash memory. A technician has to connect the TV to a computer and flash the firmware manually.
The best thing is to contact a certified service centre from luxor and ask them.
Hello Nvedia signals cannot be porcessed by Sansui Tv. You have tow options before you to connect your self assembled computer to this tV. The first one is try by reducing the resolution f VGA output. for that, go to Nvidea control [normally will be displayed at the right end of the taskbar] and chage relolution there. By default, the resolution will be 1024/768. Select it to the lowest; 800/600. If the TV display it, just advance it to the next highest; 960/600. If this does not help you, there is no other way than change the computer's video card to any other, which works on Windows Video Drive. Can be bought from local computer component market, insert it to one amoung the free PCI socket of the computer and do the next proceedings to change over video output from on board video out, and feed this video signal to yur TV. OK.
I ran into the same problem with my "50 maxent. The manual clearly states that mac resolutions are not supported. We won't let that stop us. Step one is to download switchresx. It's a simple utility that should allow you to define custom resolutions. http://www.madrau.com/ . Step 2 is to download chicken of the VNC. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/9517 . Once this is installed on a separate mac from the one you are trying to connect to the maxent take your mini and hook it up to the RGB port on the maxent and boot it up. Once this is done use chicken of the vnc to take control of of the mini with the other mac. Now you can change the resolution on the mini using switchresx which you installed on the mini earlier. In the case of the maxent you will need to set it to 1366x768 at 60 hz. If using another flat panel consult your user manual for the correct resolution. In my opinion there is no flat paned tv this should not work for. Good luck!
