Re: TV only 2 months old ceases to work
I think it is the EHT for some reason it blew off for you. You got a miniature picture after you turned it on again because it was partially damaged and then it blew off completely. It can be fixed from a competent person.

Sounds like trouble in the standby/power up circuit. have you tried unplugging the TV for a half hour and seeing what happens? It might start up but I think this problem won't go away. If you heard a high pitched buzzing it sounds like a problem in the high voltage not letting the start up circuit work. threy are related. The start up circuit waits for the high voltage to stablize and then switches it on.
Greetings. I had the same problem with my 29" RCA, and it was easy to repair. I opened the back cover of my tv and just disconected the two wires cable that connect with the upper controler (volume, chanels, etc); and now it is working OK; but I must operate the tv only with the remote controler.
Followed Terryfic's solution. I am a DIYer and managed to order the part, desolder the old one and solder in the new one. However, when I turned it back on I got a black screen with sound. Hmmm, saw the adjustment screws but was hesitant. Ended up turning about 10 degrees one way and presto chango... Saved a $1200 upgrade to HD for a $30 part! Thanks
I AM SORRY ABOUT YOUR PROBLEMS WITH YOUR TV... AS IT IS YOU BOUGHT YOURS AT APPROXIMATELY THE SAME TIME THAT I BOUGHT MINE. I STARTED HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE SAME THING YOU DID ABOUT 6 MONTHS AFTER I PURCHASED IT. BUT THEN I THOUGHT IT WAS DUE TO SOMETHING MY NIECES HAD DONE TO THE TV. MY DAD TRIED TO FIX IT AND IT WORKED FOR A WHILE AND THEN ON CHRISTMAS EVE 2006 IT WENT COMPLETELY BISERK!!! NOW I DONT EVEN KNOW WHERE TO GET THE CONTROL PANEL.
