You can fix this TV very easily and inexpensively if you know how to use a soldering iron and aren't afraid of some intricate work....

It is your power supply Capactors that are blown...Remove the back of the tv and look at the power supply and look for the round capacitors that have blown (see the non-flat tops usually w/discoloration).....Usually it is 3 of the 1000uf 16v capacitors that need to be upgraded....(Shown in the first picture below)

Just pull use a soldering iron and remove the leaking/blown ones and replace with higher voltage ones....I used Panasonic ECA-1EHG102 25V 1000uf ones from Digi-Key (Digi-Key p/n P5544-ND)....

If it is the two larger ones that are leaking/blown (1000uf 35V as seen below one bulging and one blown/leaking) replace those with higher quality Panasonic ECA-1VHG102 ones as well (Digi-Key p/n P5555-ND)...Digi-Key is at www.digikey.com and they ship fast and offer great prices...

Your set is still under a manufacturer warranty. Take your set back to Wal-Mart and they will send it out to be repaired, or give you a new one.

How to unlock the tv with out a remote?


Hello
If you haven't a remote, it is very difficult to unlock the TV. Anyway try these following steps. Sometimes may help you.

  1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
  2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
  4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
Wish you sucess.

Look to see if you have a fan on the backside.
If so this may be not working! How old is the unit?
Look, it may have alot of dust in the fan.
