TV won't turn on - hums when remote is pressed

Our TV was working fine when we went out of town and would not turn on when we returned a week later. The power went out, but it was not due to a storm. When the remote is used to turn it on, a high pitched humming sound comes from the set. Could it just be a blown fuse from the outage? Any guidance to give us to try on our own would be apprecaited. Thank you, Caron Hoffman

Re: TV won't turn on - hums when remote is pressed

Did u remember if u left ur tv on when u went out of town for one week? well probably a blown capacitor in the power supply circuit is the one u've heard. the symptom is usually caused by a breakdown in the power supply circuit. in most modern receivers (transistorized and/or ic), it may also be caused by a breakdown in the horizontal deflection circuits (hor. oscillator, pre-drive, or drive circuits). supply voltages for the tuner, vif,sif, and vertical output are usually supplied by the horizontal output circuit. but if you doesnt know anything about these stuffs, better bring it to a qualified service tecnhician.

You might have intermittent ON/OFF switch. Can't think of anything else according to the description of the fault.

Power button only one that won't turn power on

Have the remote tested either with a tester that most shops have or in a dark room with a digital camera the display will faintly flash when remote pointed at it and buttons pressed.

Also if button does not work (power) unplug the set for a while to see if it will reset. If the tester shows same problem--no working for power or have to press ******* buttons 99% chance something got spilled onto remote and got inside

Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Lock Fr. Panel in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu and press OK (box won't have check mark).Buttons don't work
• If you're using the remote control, press the TV button first to make sure the remote is in TV mode.• The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Lock Fr. Panel in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu and press OK (box won't have check mark).• Unplug the TV for two minutes and then plug it back in. Turn the TV on and try again.TV turns off unexpectedly • Sleep timer might have been activated. Go to page 24 for instructions.• KidPass might have been activated. Go to page 21 for instructions.• Wake-Up timer turned on the TV and no remote or front panel buttons were pressed for two hours.• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then
turn on again. If this happens frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high or low.

Sound control or lack thereof

You have a corruped EEprom. A very common problem for this TV! See a tech...there are six different EEproms for this TV and he will have to read IC001 and IC 1001 to find the right EEprom!
