The set actually has a "3 strikes and you are out design".
It will try three times and if fails shut the set down.
This model is prone to bad solder connections at and near the high voltage transformer---also to bad parts in that same area which include: the transformer, the sweep transistor near it, and the high voltage splitter block it feeds.
Typical high voltage transformer that is also called a FLYBACK.
replace the flyback 25296 and the CP150 and CP114 capacitor. You can get the flyback and the capacitors at the following link and they provide free installation instructions with pics so you can easially do the repair yourself. heres the link. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
That is an ITC222 chassis and likely the HOT has shorted, 2sc5588 Rca Part # 259899
You might also check Cp150 2200uf/16v in the 6 volt line, a common failure. Always replace Cp120 330uf/35v & Cp150 2200uf/16v and always resolder Cl031 & Cl032...
There is also a tech bulletin Tv-06003 Dated 12/8/2006 which states:
Replace deformed ribbon cable plastic connector BP005 on the flyback board. This connector is warping or bowing (May Not Even Look Like It) and causing poor connections to the ribbon cable. Replace Rca P/N # 258686.
Try putting pressure on the BP005 connector and turn the set on, you may find the set will now work fine. Replace connector and you may wish to replace the ribbon as well while you are doing the repair!
This set is notorious for failures like this and it is not uncommon to find multiple problems.
Hope this helps!
