In my Orion model TV1333A 13-inch TV, the power switch, which only worked intermittently (i.e., had to push it several times to get it to work) for a long time, has now failed completely. I would like to replace the switch and am contemplating replacing it with a standard toggle switch (which, while ugly, would be more reliable...and, I don't know where to even start looking for an exact replacement). Does anyone have any advise on how I should proceed? Much thanks for your help.

Is probably a bad relay or a bad capacitor most likely in the power supply.This is a common problem with TVs. You may find that if you let it sit plugged in for several hours that it will turn back on. If that is the case, it is most definitely a capacitor. Repair costs will vary, mostly based on the time it takes to troubleshoot the exact component that has failed, so you will have to determine if it is worth it to have the set repaired.
Get some Freeze spray, next time it faults, start spraying components, the one that when sprayed, returns the set to normal, well there is your "Faulty" but, now you must find out WHY that component "Heated Up" did it spontaneously fail? Or is some other component "Take it out", you must then go to the Power Supply, and check all Voltages. You will need a service manual to do that. Intermittent faults are a vane to us Engineers, they are the WORST, fault to sort of have,.. It is always better, if a "Fault" is "Hard On" at least you have a point to work from, but intermittent ones are real hard...I have been doing this for over 30 years and some still stump me, and I am still learning..
